00:14 idiosyncrat Demat!
00:38 idiosyncrat Just fixed one of those nasty bugs in C language code -- I got the code to work with debugging on, but the bug showed up when I turned debugging on.
00:39 idiosyncrat Turns out my code was reading the wrong location at one point.  With debugging on, by coincidence, the contents were what was needed.  With debugging off, I got another random set of contents, and the bug appeared.
01:39 idiosyncrat I just uploaded Marpa-R3-4.001_048
01:39 idiosyncrat This completes the symbol/rule mitosis.
01:40 idiosyncrat Quite a few changes in the grammar accessors -- they are essentially completely redone: https://github.com/jeffreykegler/Marpa--R3/blob/master/cpan/pod/Scanless/G.pod#accessors

18:21 idiosyncrat I just uploaded Marpa-R3-4.001_049
18:21 idiosyncrat It fixes two minor bugs which, on many platforms, caused the test suite to fail for Marpa-R3-4.001_048
22:42 ronsavage joined #marpa
22:49 ronsavage JK: Re Marpa::R3 V 4.001_049. All tests pass for me.
22:53 idiosyncrat joined #marpa
23:20 ronsavage JK: And, all tests for KollosX::Languages::Perl::PackUnpack pass,  using Marpa::R3 V 4.001049.
23:20 idiosyncrat ronsavage: Really that fast?  Thanks!
23:21 idiosyncrat This update will (I hope!) have been the hardest from the compatibility point of view.  Lot of functions got renamed etc etc.  So I'm glad to hear the upgrade went quickly.
23:22 idiosyncrat Nothing yet from CPAN testers on Marpa::R3 V 4.001049.
23:50 ronsavage JK: I know you're not ready to announce Kollos, but would you feel OK if I release KollosX::Languages::Perl::PackUnpack V 1.00 to CPAN, with it depending on Marpa::R3 V 4.001049?
23:57 idiosyncrat ronsavage: My reservation about this is based on how CPAN works -- I believe by default (and usually) every module and dependency is automatically upgraded to the latest.
23:58 idiosyncrat I haven't deliberately uploaded a dysfunctional Marpa::R3 in a while, but one of the freedoms "alpha" allows me is to upload something broken in significant ways for testing purposes.
23:59 idiosyncrat At one time, that would mean any "upstream" module in CPAN would also be broken unless the users were taking special precautions, precautions which were not the default.
