16:55 hydrajum1 dotplus: silly question but do you use ripgrep for local file  searching instead of ack/grep etc because of the performance gain?
17:01 dotplus hydrajum1: yes, absolutely. years ago, when I was in the perl world, I came across ack from Andy directly and started using it because of the powerful search capability. I mean, of course, I still use grep itself in many situations (almost exclusively when I'm not on my own machine, because I can't expect anything other than grep to be installed on some-random-machine)
17:02 dotplus but ripgrep is *much* faster in the limited experience I have with it so far.
17:04 hydrajum1 I use grep casually and was just curious how you were using it and whether I'd gain much from using ripgrep instead
17:04 dotplus I am yet to customise it to my needs and my fingers are yet to learn it properly, so I'll still see ack in my history. there have been a number of situations where I have done a rg, not found what I was looking for and resorted to ack. But really I think I should take the time and be disclipined enough to learn to use it right.
17:06 dotplus I grep/ack/ripgrep more than casually. I search hard and search often:) and often through large (multi-GB) filesystem structures. so that's why performance is interesting to me.

23:50 pdurbin ack is usually fast enough for me
23:50 pdurbin dotplus: that's cool that you know Andy
23:53 dotplus "know". I met him a couple of times. He was on a usenix committee with me once.
23:54 pdurbin Ah, cool. I don't know him but I like ack and I used to read PerlBuzz back in the day.
23:55 dotplus yup, sometimes. I was never a Real Perl person, but still did org work for YAPC/Perl Workshops.
23:56 dotplus while I'm bragging: I submitted my 1st non-doc patch to an openstack project today.
23:57 dotplus nothing much, a small bugfix. But, hey, you have to celebrate even minor achievements, right?
