02:58 Topic for #marpa is now Start here: http://savage.net.au/Marpa.html - Code paste/run: https://f.perlbot.pl/#marpa - Jeffrey's Marpa site: http://jeffreykegler.github.io/Marpa-web-site/ - IRC log: http://irclog.perlgeek.de/marpa/today - Youtube channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCYKVfGBtfTqbs1JdYq-dc5g
03:44 ronsavage JK: Latest patch. 'only it is valid for the input so far.' => 'only /if/ it is valid for the input so far.'
03:45 idiosyncrat Hard on my heels!  I actually think it's something like a coherent document at this point, but I'm just rereading to make sure.
03:46 ronsavage BTW: I only read a tiny amount of the patches.........
03:47 ronsavage The above was line 941. This is line 961: 'Where C<alpha> and C<beta> are sequence' => 'Where C<alpha> and C<beta> are sequence/s/'.
03:48 ronsavage Lines 993 .. 994 are redundant.
03:49 ronsavage Given lines 969 .. 970/
03:49 ronsavage Likewise, 1000 .. 1001 are redundant.
03:51 ronsavage In lines 1352 and following, I suspect 'form' => 'from'.
03:53 idiosyncrat I'm fixing these as you type them in -- well OK I'm a couple behind :-)
03:55 idiosyncrat OK caught up.
03:55 idiosyncrat I grep'ed for the 'form' => 'from' problem and fixed a number of similar errors.
03:56 idiosyncrat That's enough, what with the other stuff I was entering for a new 'push', so expect to hear from Travis shortly
03:57 idiosyncrat That proof took me forever, and if I'd known how much effort it would take, I'm not sure I would have done it.

03:58 idiosyncrat But doing it did give me a very good understanding of exactly how Marpa's ranking works.
03:59 idiosyncrat And I am toying with the idea of using it as an example of the issues with PEG.  Ranking in PEG is even trickier than in Marpa (in Marpa the BNF is a safety net -- you'll never get any parses which don't satisfy the BNF).
04:00 idiosyncrat Unless you're doing similar proofs in PEG (which nobody is) they are just throwing code at the problem and stopping once the test suite passes.
04:00 idiosyncrat To be sure, there are coders out there who do *everything* that way, but I expect nobody aspires to be one of them.
