00:04 flaviu1 Horribly noobish question, I added `|| '-' Expression bless => unmin` to the end of the Expression grammer in the example at https://metacpan.org/pod/Marpa::R2::Scanless, but while -1 + 1 works, 1+ -1 doesn't
00:13 flaviu1 Ah, it was my fault
00:13 flaviu1 It doesn't make sense to have lower precedence than addition such
00:18 flaviu1 eg, (1+ (-1)) makes sense, the negative tries to stick as near the number as possible.

01:06 jeffreykegler I've noticed, by the way, that the "cost of ownership" of new features is typically higher than the cost of writing it (even including debugging).
01:07 jeffreykegler Cost of ownership includes keeping the docs and examples correct and up to date with everything else.
01:07 jeffreykegler The new $slg->parse() interface is an extreme example of that -- it took a few minutes to code, but many hours to document ...
01:08 jeffreykegler and going forward it is yet another way to use Marpa, meaning it has potential to interact with everything else.
