03:34 jeffreykegler http://boxbase.org/entries/2015/jun/15/marpa-parsing-revolution/
03:35 jeffreykegler I kind of like the idea of a parsing revolution.\
03:35 jeffreykegler The real revolution would be a new programming paradigm -- Language Oriented Programming

06:47 rns jeffreykegler: re error objects -- looks like way to go; BTW, __tostring metatable field can be used to auto-convert an object to a string.

09:12 rns And the recent progress on Kollos is quite impressive -- will take some time to catch up when I hopefully have cycles next week.

14:28 Cheery Earlier I repeated 50 times, got results that pypy was worse than python
14:28 Cheery I increased the repeat to 500 times, pypy was twice faster than python
14:28 Cheery *5000

15:18 jeffreykegler rns: re http://irclog.perlgeek.de/marpa/2015-06-17#i_10760483
15:18 jeffreykegler Thanks!
15:20 jeffreykegler I *do* use __tostring.  A problem in Lua is that the standard 5.1 interpreter does not apply it -- you can write your own interpreter to convert the error object to a string, but the standard one will not do it IIRC.
15:21 jeffreykegler Thanks for the kind word re Kollos progress -- I think it will come out great, but in fact it's a bit of a mess right now ...
15:22 jeffreykegler and much of my old planning I have given the toss -- there may be no KIR for example, just the new "pure Lua" interface I am creating, ...
15:22 jeffreykegler which I have not spec'd
15:23 jeffreykegler Perhaps once it's clear the old KIR is not going to happen I can rename this unspec'd "pure Lua" interface KIR.
15:25 jeffreykegler rns: This is actually a good time to take away from Kollos .. I am breaking everything, ignoring specs and creating new stuff without specing and generally just being the "Project Member from Hell"
15:29 rns re http://irclog.perlgeek.de/marpa/2015-06-17#i_10762617 -- ops, I'm probably too much into luajit these days. :)
15:30 rns re http://irclog.perlgeek.de/marpa/2015-06-17#i_10762645 -- it's ok, I think, and looks great from the outside, BTW.
15:31 jeffreykegler rns: I am glad to hear that
