02:35 jdurand Re https://irclog.perlgeek.de/marpa/2017-06-24#i_14780191 - yep very nice - thx for the link!

05:25 ronsavage JK: Still in Event.pod. Under 'The lify cycle of events' you refer to 'actual symbol instance'. This expression only appears twice in that page, but neither time is it explicitly defined.
05:33 ronsavage Also under 'The life cycle of events',  the last sentence starts with 'They'. Which they?
05:33 ronsavage IOW How does that para tie in with the next which says 'Instance events are declared in the SLIF DSL.'!?
05:35 ronsavage Sorry. https://irclog.perlgeek.de/marpa/2017-06-25#i_14783520. The 'They' above is at the end of the 1st para.
06:08 idiosyncrat https://github.com/jeffreykegler/Marpa--R3/commit/f93479af7f557ce36f43edee9afdeedacfdd3984
06:09 idiosyncrat ronsavage: That's the commit for the changes I just made in Event.pod in response to your suggestions.  Thanks!
06:09 idiosyncrat I added definitions for "actual" and "potential symbol instance".
06:10 idiosyncrat And I fix the grafs you had questions about -- one of the sentences had a serious typo which made it incomprehensible.
06:13 idiosyncrat You don't want to grab that commit because it's my working branch & includes some backward incompatibilities, but you can read the latest Event.pod on github: https://github.com/jeffreykegler/Marpa--R3/blob/master/cpan/pod/Event.pod
06:36 ronsavage JK: I've getting an error. https://gist.github.com/ronsavage/341a49d354873a1438a1e6882dd09b74. Msg: ron@zigzag:~/perl.modules/KollosX-Languages-Perl-PackUnpack$ prove -lv tt/test.t .. Bad named argument(s) to $slr->new() method: event_handlers
06:36 ronsavage Marpa::R2 exception at /home/ron/perl.modules/KollosX-Languages-Perl-PackUnpack/lib/KollosX/Languages/Perl/PackUnpack.pm line 377.
06:37 ronsavage Line 377 is the call $self -> recce(...);
06:39 ronsavage The grammar is https://gist.github.com/ronsavage/84b95c910b0dd08934b2d24335321108.
07:38 ronsavage joined #marpa
07:52 ronsavage The code is here: https://github.com/ronsavage/KollosX-Languages-Perl-PackUnpack. The only thing I've run is prove -lv t.
07:54 ronsavage Nevermind!!!!!!!!! The global replace I used to switch to Marpa::R2 missed something. Sorry!
08:27 ronsavage I was using ranking_method=> 'high_rule_only' in the call to R->new(). Is there any guidance in the docs re replacing this?
08:28 ronsavage I've pushed working code to github, but nothing is ever parse. With perl -Ilib scripts/tiny.pl, each input produces 'No expression was successfully parsed'. Any ideas?

15:42 idiosyncrat ronsavage: re https://irclog.perlgeek.de/marpa/2017-06-25#i_14783781 -- 'high_rule_only' and all the ranking methods, are not only options for the *grammar* constructor.
15:42 idiosyncrat They can't be specified in $recce->new()
15:43 idiosyncrat ronsavage: Other than that, I lost track in your thread of comments.  Was the above your only remaining question?

23:10 ronsavage JK: Yes, that was my remaining question.
