00:18 ronsavage JK: Sorry. Pushed. As soon as I'd uploaded the HTML page, I started coding by cutting out the events and switching to an Actions module.
00:25 Aria Indeed!
00:52 Idiosyncrat ronsavage: OK.  I just submitted a pull request, which I hope is formatted OK.
00:52 Idiosyncrat Sorry about dropping the pseudo-code.  I mention my reservations in the message that accompanies the pull request.
01:23 ronsavage I've merged the patch and uploaded the result, with no edits from me.
02:42 ronsavage I've updated the FAQ with Q 33, after a surprising result after adding :i to string lexemes.

18:10 idiosyncrat_ "Limited circulation" version 2 of my new Theory doc is up.
18:11 idiosyncrat_ No new chapters, but major, major changes in the ones currently in advanced draft status.
18:11 Aria Ooh. Yay!
18:11 idiosyncrat_ Lots of new "readability" features, like more and better sections headings.
18:12 idiosyncrat_ And indexes, although these are "works in progress"
18:12 idiosyncrat_ The more casual readers may want to glance at the "Introduction" chapter ...
18:12 idiosyncrat_ which is totally rewritten from the original paper.
18:13 idiosyncrat_ Corrections and comments on the portions in "advanced draft" status are welcome.
18:14 idiosyncrat_ (A first section describes what's "advanced" draft and what is not.)

22:07 ronsavage Yesterday I finished coding the new, Marpa-based, Genealogy::Gedcom::Date V 2 module. I have still to update the docs from V1, and write all new tests.
22:08 ronsavage Despite Jeffrey's disquiet, and hence removal of "while (my $value = $self -> recce -> value)" from the FAQ, that's what I'm using to process each of N ambiguities. More later.

23:15 Idiosyncrat ronsavage: actually this puts to rest my 2 grounds of disquiet.
23:16 Idiosyncrat My first was that it was just pseudo-code, so we wouldn't know it actually worked, which I like to before putting even pseudo-code in docs.
23:17 Idiosyncrat Second was that I didn't think a user would want to use the calls the way you described.  But obviously you did and it worked. :-)
23:17 Idiosyncrat So the pseudo-code can go back in if you want. :-)
