12:58 * masak fully expects Ven to notice that he just pushed some (minor) stuff to 007
12:59 masak I'm cleaning up so that I can start from a passing test suite before I finish up the AST strengthening refactor
12:59 Ven no, I'm too much with the students
13:00 masak oh. in that case, enjoy :)
13:01 Ven hhe
13:01 Ven hehe*. make it green, refactor, and now, make it red.ooff you go
13:01 Ven off*
13:02 Ven I've been doing ASM for the last 3 days, so don't expect any clever high-level insight from me
13:02 Ven (not that you should expect 'em any other day, though...)
13:04 masak usually I have trouble keeping up with you. might be good for me that you've been doing ASM for a while :P
13:11 Ven oh, I'm sure you know far more that me in TT :)
13:11 Ven I know nothing of topology theory
13:11 Ven I'll go back to writing APL once I've done enough ASM...
13:13 * masak is reminded of where he is with the refactor: *one* test currently (inexplicably) fails
13:22 Ven x86_64 is really...
13:22 Ven "VFMADDSUBPS", "FYL2XP1", "AESKEYGENASSIST", or even "vbroadcastf128".
13:22 Ven sigh.
13:23 Ven 3.6k pages (Intel manual).
13:34 masak that sounds... like the opposite of types and macros, actually
13:35 Ven :D
13:35 Ven it's REALLY unityped. only numbers.
13:36 masak and no scoping
13:36 masak my remaining failing test is scoping-related
13:36 Ven well, *some* scoping
13:36 Ven pushq %rbp could be considered scoping...
13:36 Ven (unless you're one to like -fomit-frame-pointer)
13:37 Ven (also, you've seen I can't keep up with myself at the SPW :)..)
13:38 masak :P
16:13 Ven I'm still very unsure about what I think about "small packages" in perl6-lang
16:13 Ven (if it looks like I'm talking here because #perl6 is "too common", it's just that I'm far too confused myself to explain it clearly...)
16:25 FROGGS joined #6macros
16:38 masak not sure what you're referring to
