22:44 labster Will we be discussing exceptions?  I get the feeling that I'm not doing them 100% correctly.
22:44 labster maybe ~64% correct.
22:46 cognominal I wish I could evaluate my correctness with such precision
22:47 labster That's one of the many things this course will teach you.
22:49 cognominal why irc, and not a goole meetup?
22:52 masak because IRC rocks, and Google Meetup doesn't.
22:52 masak labster: what would you like to learn about exceptions?
22:56 cognominal g'night
22:56 cognominal I mean using both
22:56 masak hm, let me try to list what I know about them: (a) they're a way to abort from deep in a call stack, (b) they shouldn't be used for control flow, (c) you can make your own types, (d) it's just as important to make exceptions informative as it is to make successful results informative.
22:57 masak cognominal: I know nothing about Google Meetup. I prefer IRC.
22:58 masak people can hang around discussing the exercises wherever they want. I'll be hanging aroudn here :)
23:00 labster Maybe about different types.  And when they get thrown.
23:02 labster I use fail, try, and CATCH without really understanding what I'm doing.
23:02 masak oh! ok.
23:03 masak I'll see if I can work something in.
23:03 masak chances are I can.
23:04 masak labster: see #perl6. continuing discussion there about particulars of fail, try, and CATCH.
