03:30 ronsavage Re the gist http://scsys.co.uk:8002/424926. Any advice on making case 17 (utf8) work? If testing, just chop cases 1 .. 16 and 18 .. 22.

04:57 rns ronsavage: re http://irclog.perlgeek.de/​marpa/2014-09-23#i_9396781 — case 17 can be made to work either by wrapping the input in quotes or adding rules to accept unquoted strings — the grammar seems to not accept *unempty* unquoted strings at the moment.

05:16 jdurand Jeffrey, the doc for marpa_r_alternative() says "A value of 0 is reserved for a now-deprecated feature. Do not use it". What about negative values ? Thx.

05:39 jeffreykegler jdurand: re http://irclog.perlgeek.de/​marpa/2014-09-23#i_9397021 -- negative values are OK.
05:39 jeffreykegler I will fix the documentation to state this explicitly.

19:02 jeffreykegler I'm looking for an example of a large prioritized statement, one that's either is use or at least reasonably tested -- one larger than those in my tutorial.
19:04 jeffreykegler A prioritized SLIF statement is one like:  E ::= <number> || E '*' E | E '/' E || E '+' E | E '-' E
19:05 jeffreykegler jdurand -- I know you've done some complex expressions in your grammars, but I'm not sure if you used prioritized statements -- IIRC correctly you like to follow the original standard's BNF as closely as possible.

21:37 jdurand Re http://irclog.perlgeek.de/​marpa/2014-09-23#i_9400607 - quite a lot of left or right recursive, but not prioritized as you quote- ;
21:40 idiosyncrat jdurand: OK.  Thanks!
22:36 ronsavage joined #marpa
22:47 ronsavage rns: Thanx. I'll look into the "*unempty* unquoted strings" issue. I'm working on quoted 'v' unquoted strings at the moment.
