00:02 vendethiel whoops, I should probably start writing my blog post
00:09 vendethiel (I mean, for the advent)
00:09 vendethiel I seriously need to find a way to reconciliate work / home projects balance :)
00:20 masak :)
00:20 masak balance is hard. doesn't take much for it to be offset.
00:47 masak ok, reverted the offending change (which wasn't all that important). this should bring 007's master back to a working state again.
00:49 masak wow, `prove` is much faster with precompilation \o/
00:49 masak 'night, #6macros
00:58 vendethiel bai
02:34 vendethiel joined #6macros
10:51 vendethiel joined #6macros

22:05 masak I wonder if the readme would be improved by links into 007 example code.
22:05 masak a phrase like "AST fragments are also first-class objects, occurring as values in the program itself" could very well be demonstrated with a program
22:07 vendethiel I like examples, yes
22:09 masak hm.
22:09 masak I will ponder it.
22:10 masak next up, I'd like to get rid of the types() hack in Q.pm -- and make type objects part of the built-ins.
22:19 vendethiel yeah.
22:21 masak None is a bit weird. it's both a singleton instance and the type itself.
22:21 masak I keep cringing in preparation for that blowing up on me somehow... :)
22:21 masak maybe we'll just have to live with it being slightly odd until 007 gets enum types.
23:30 masak $ perl6 bin/007 -e='say(Int)'
23:30 masak <type Int>
23:30 masak $ perl6 bin/007 -e='say(Q::Parameter)'
23:30 masak <type Q::Parameter>
23:30 masak \o/
23:31 masak $ perl6 bin/007 -e='say(None)'
23:31 masak None
23:31 masak well, that settles that :)
23:32 masak (the hardcoded term has parser precedence over the type object in the built-ins)
