16:41 jeffreykegler rns: Thanks for all your efforts in testing Libmarpa!
16:42 jeffreykegler I note that in trivial1.c you switched to plan_lazy().  I much prefer (and think that best practice is) counted tests.
16:44 jeffreykegler This prevents the rare, but potentially disastrous case, where a mistake makes a test suite succeed vacously.
16:44 jeffreykegler It also catches other problems in the writing of the test suite itself.
16:45 jeffreykegler These problems are unusual, but when they do happen they are really, really nasty, and well worth a little effort to prevent IMHO.
16:45 jeffreykegler In fact, s/a little effort/a considerable effort/
16:52 rns jeffreykegler: re http://irclog.perlgeek.de/marpa/2015-02-14#i_10116277 -- absolutely welcome.
16:53 rns re plan_lazy() -- I thought I'd use it until the number of tests relatively stabilizes and then go to back to plan(), is that ok?
16:53 jeffreykegler Sure, that's fine.
16:58 rns Great, so I'll continue with sequences and others in the order they're in the api doc.
16:58 rns It's a bit late here so I've to go AFK.
16:59 jeffreykegler Bye!
16:59 rns Bye, AFK.
