14:20 Ven "a syn­tax trans­for­ma­tion in Racket can be far more so­phis­ti­cated than the usual Com­mon Lisp macro." what's the definition of "sophisticated"?
14:21 Ven I'm still not sure as to what's better, phase binding (scheme/racket) or late binding everywhere (most other lisps), but perl6 has long made its decision
14:34 masak ...which is? I'm still not caught up with terminology in scheme/racket.
14:36 masak this channel feels like it's full of Ven throwing cool ideas my way, and me not having enough tuits to digest them properly, or integrate them into the Perl 6 world view :/
14:36 Ven s/tuits/time/ :P
14:37 Ven in common lisp, macros have the lexical scope that's enclosing
14:38 Ven (knowing that there's no "top-level lexical" scope in CL)
14:38 Ven in racket, you have per-"phase" lexical scopes.
14:38 * masak has never had anyone correcting "tuits" to "time" in anything he said before, and wonders at the significance of this :)
14:39 masak ok. phases sounds like something Perl 6 doesn't have in this case.
14:41 Ven Meaning I'm sure you'd a round to digesting them correctly if you had a bit more time to read all these links I've thrown at you
14:41 Ven well, phases are akin to BEGIN, INIT, etc
14:43 Ven even though they're numbered in racket
14:44 masak ok
14:44 masak I do hope that we'll end up with a nice, not unification exactly, but harmony perhaps, between macros and phases.
14:45 * Ven has no idea
