00:10 ronsavage The New Year is off to a great start. I've finally - after much hair-pulling - extended Tree::Cladogram to use either Imager or Image::Magick.
01:27 Idiosyncrat As another way of illustrating the point I am trying to make about parsers and language-oriented programming.
01:28 Idiosyncrat Putting one foot in front of another is the way you walk ten miles.
01:28 Idiosyncrat It will also take you to the top of Everest, but you'll also need special training and/or equipment.
01:28 Idiosyncrat And it just won't work in getting you to Mars.
01:29 Idiosyncrat Careful hard work by programmers may well get an new OO or VM going.
01:30 Idiosyncrat But it's not enough by itself to create a parse capable of supporting LOP.
01:30 Idiosyncrat s/a parse/a parser/
01:30 Idiosyncrat Top-down is seductive because it makes parser look like calling subroutines,
01:31 Idiosyncrat and suggest you can do it by adding one hack on top of another.
01:32 Idiosyncrat And it will work up to an extent.
01:32 Idiosyncrat With a lot of work it will take you to the parsing equivalent of Everest.
01:33 Idiosyncrat But LOP is Mars, and to get their you need to do more than just keep plugging away.
01:33 Idiosyncrat s/get their/get there/

03:30 Idiosyncrat hobbs: hey, whatever, happy new year!
03:49 hobbs likewise
