11:45 * Ven looks at http://vitovan.com/lispweb3.html and thinks "that's how I want my doc NOT to look like"
11:56 masak :)
12:23 Ven joined #6macros
12:29 Ven there's been a fair bit of lisp posts (r/programming, etc) recently
12:29 Ven (credits to yogthos, mostly..)
12:30 masak sounds positive
12:43 Ven well, some of his blog posts sound far less... you-know-what than usual lispers
12:43 Ven actually, it seems like he wasn't him..
12:44 Ven the blog post series (5 posts) I'm talking about is this: http://malisper.me/2015/07/07/deb​ugging-lisp-part-1-recompilation/
12:45 Ven recompilation, inspection, class redefinition, restarts, and runtime tracing
12:46 masak nice
12:47 Ven we have a bit of that already, which is pretty great
12:48 Ven recompilation is not nearly there, afaik
12:49 Ven inspecting is missing. class redefiniton... we can do this. restarts -- these can most probably be in userland
12:49 Ven and runtime tracing - we've seen it's possible (jnthn++, obviously)
12:52 Ven I wonder how hard it'd be to get a perl6 "runtime REPL"
12:52 Ven that'd probably be running in a separate thread?
12:54 masak kind of a client-server thing?
12:54 Ven yes.
12:55 Ven so that you could look at stuff while it's running
12:55 Ven that probably means being able to replace a function (at runtime) with a "traced" one
12:55 Ven Foo::Bar.wrap(sub (|c) { say "I WAS CALLED WITH {c}"; nextsame; })
12:55 Ven ^ that should be typeable into some runtime REPL, in my mind
12:57 Ven but I have next to no idea how to achieve that, or where to start looking
12:59 masak ok
12:59 masak maybe ask on #perl6? :)
13:00 Ven I think I'd rather leave these brains to their current task :)
13:03 masak heh.
