00:53 Cheery It's possible in human mimicking  model there could be even third, fourth or fifth parsing layer
00:54 Cheery consider how indentation matters
00:54 Cheery that things are positioned relative to others matters.
00:55 Cheery hm. curious stuff that paper
00:57 Cheery jeffreykegler is the author of marpa and author of some of those papers around marpa?
00:58 Cheery hm. seems he is.
00:59 Cheery I don't know if he's noticed. But the most useful thing I note about marpa is that it's grokking why deterministic LR or LL is widespread.
01:01 Cheery shaping around the idea that people use them because they fit and come in convenient packaging
01:05 Cheery GLL paper just gets to insult deterministic parsing.
01:06 Cheery the author presents the parser in a form that the whole input is prior known and not affected by the parsing result.
01:07 Cheery in other hand marpa is presented in a way that slightly resembles LR.
01:09 Cheery lets redact 'most useful' to useful. after all the most useful is probably to get it handle right recursion.
01:11 Cheery or I don't know. perhaps there's something more useful.

01:59 ronsavage Cheery: Re http://irclog.perlgeek.de/marpa/2015-05-22#i_10641547. People used them because for decades they had nothing else. I'm deeply grateful I didn't ever do any work in that field - it would have been excruciating.
03:01 jeffreykegler rns: re luacheck and other tools -- what's the best way to install them -- the "cpanm of Lua"
03:02 ronsavage joined #marpa
03:07 rns luarocks -- https://luarocks.org/ should work out of the box under Unix
03:07 jeffreykegler rns: Thanks!
03:07 rns otherwise, https://github.com/torch/luajit-rocks helps s lot -- lua http://irclog.perlgeek.de/marpa/2015-05-15#i_10607561
03:07 rns s/helps s lot/helps a lot/
03:11 jeffreykegler rns: Fast & easy.  I'm already done and have already run my first "luacheck"
03:16 rns Yep, luacheck does the job except perhaps that is marks ok(), is(), done_testing() and other functions in Test.More -- https://luarocks.org/modules/fperrad/lua-testmore -- as undefined variables.
03:17 rns Didn't look deep into it though, maybe I'm doing it wrong.
06:06 ronsavage joined #marpa
06:57 jeffreykegler joined #marpa
07:14 rns Ok, the workaround is to local t = require 'Test.More' t.is(...) -- https://goo.gl/v5Z5HO -- to avoid importing into global namespace or use .luacheckrc to ignore
09:24 KotH good morning!
09:32 rns Indeed.
09:32 rns BTW, what a non-recursive answer for 'goog morning' in English? Spoiler: non-native speaker here. :)
09:32 rns s/what/what's/
12:46 KotH .o0(good question)
13:05 DrForr 'same to you', maybe?
13:12 rns Good point, thanks. I thought about ‘reciprocated’, but it feels overly formal.
13:15 DrForr It is. 'likewise' would be a much better alternative.
13:16 DrForr At least if delivered as "Likewise. How's..."
13:20 rns Likewise, feels right on the money. Great suggestion.
