01:48 Topic for #6macros is now 6macros: discussing the finer points of Perl 6 macros, Qtrees, and how to stay sane | irclog: irclog.perlgeek.de/6macros/today

12:25 Ven I keep constantly wishing instantiation time and compile-time weren't different :)
12:25 Ven (or "so different")
12:25 Ven obviously, there's some friction due to what can be computed at compile-time
12:25 Ven But I know I find myself wishing often to be able to write stuff like
12:26 Ven role Something[::T] { method create of T { T.new } }
12:26 Ven but that most probably will never work

19:25 masak insight of the day, propelled forward by tinkering with 007:
19:26 masak in a langiage like Perl 6 where "custom op" merely means that the op symbol has been bound in user-space, it doesn't make a whole lot of sense to single out custom ops as a separate Qtree type.
19:26 masak or rather, it all becomes a sliding scale: was it defined in the compiler itself, in the/a setting, in a loaded module, or in a script?
19:28 masak putting the focus on some of these latter things as "custom" misses the important point, that no matter where it was defined, it's treated in a very first-class manner by the whole language.
19:31 masak "custom" only makes sense in a language that treats those custom things as second-class citizens.

23:42 vendethiel- you're probably asleep, though, masak
23:43 vendethiel- [00:13] <masak> 'night, #perl6
23:43 vendethiel- indeed!
23:49 vendethiel- I think what you say goes in the way of the "applying operators is just like calling sub" thing I said a few times earlier
