00:03 idiosyncrat_ joined #marpa
00:19 idiosyncrat_ pczarn: re http://irclog.perlgeek.de/marpa/2015-08-31#i_11148974
00:20 idiosyncrat_ Noboby's going to build Earley instructions into silicon for a while, which will give me time to perfect Kollos :-)
00:21 idiosyncrat_ And most likely it won't be me who does it -- I'm not a chip designer.
00:23 idiosyncrat_ Re preventing duplicate Earley items -- that may be one of the things chip designers can do that we software nerds cannot -- I think they are things like associative memory and special-purpose caching that you can do.
00:23 idiosyncrat_ But I really don't know -- it's not my field
00:24 idiosyncrat_ As a 2nd note -- it's astounding the difference in rates of development of different CS fields.
00:26 idiosyncrat_ Stop paying attention for a few months & you're behind the curve in chip design.
00:26 idiosyncrat_ Whereas in parsing theory next to nothing will happen for decades.
00:26 Pursuit Has anyone started working on Rust bindings to libmarpa? Want to make sure I'm not duplicating effort before I get too far into it.
00:26 Pursuit google didn't turn up anything, but I figured I'd ask to make sure
00:28 idiosyncrat_ IIRC correctly there has been talk about a Rust port.  Not sure how far they've gotten.  Does a search of this backlog show anything?
00:32 Pursuit Port or bindings?
00:34 idiosyncrat_ Not sure of the scope of the project.
00:34 idiosyncrat_ Libmarpa is a low-level library so port == binding, unless I miss your meaning (which is very likely)
00:37 ronsavage joined #marpa
00:37 idiosyncrat_ https://github.com/pczarn/rust-marpa
00:38 idiosyncrat_ pczarn, the author of that project, hangs out here from time to time.
00:39 idiosyncrat_ There are a number of Marpa-based projects I wish I had the time to look into, and pczarn's is one.
01:05 idiosyncrat_ Pursuit: OK, now I understand the port vs. binding question.  pczarn's stuff looks like binding to Libmarpa.
