19:20 brrt good * #moarvm
19:20 nwc10 good *, brrt
19:21 brrt this afternoon i had the presentation of my masters thesis ... and it went decently well :-)
19:21 nwc10 excellent
19:21 nwc10 surely this means that you should be AFK celebrating?
19:21 brrt no.. i have to write the report still :-)
19:22 timotimo \o/
19:22 timotimo congratulations!
19:23 hoelzro brrt++
19:23 timotimo was there another thesis or something you'll have to ... do?
19:26 konobi hopefully going to be able to rubber duck on a conjecture about NQP/NQP bootstrap soon =0)
19:29 brrt thanks :-)
19:29 brrt no, this was my second thesis
19:29 timotimo neat!
19:29 brrt my first thesis was finished in march :-)
19:30 * nine really hopes there is no third :)
19:31 brrt well, me too
19:31 brrt :-)
19:32 brrt so yeah, maybe i'll be out a bit later :-)
19:32 timotimo yay :)
19:44 brrt did you see the larry wall interview?
19:45 brrt i should say TimToady interview
19:47 brrt okay, afk now :-)
19:47 timotimo yeah
19:47 timotimo i did see it
19:48 brrt it was interesting i thought
19:48 dalek MoarVM: 4a56a65 | timotimo++ | src/6model/reprs/CStruct.c:
19:48 dalek MoarVM: work around NULL from name_to_index_mapping
19:48 dalek MoarVM:
19:48 dalek MoarVM: not entirely sure how it gets in there - or if it's
19:48 dalek MoarVM: in there at all? potentially should have guarded with
19:48 dalek MoarVM: existskey before at_key.
19:48 dalek MoarVM: review: https://github.com/MoarVM/MoarVM/commit/4a56a65510
19:49 arnsholt timotimo: The NULL is probably returned to indicate "no such mapping"
19:50 arnsholt So either existskey or checking for NULL like you put in should be acceptable, I think
19:51 timotimo i'm glad the commit is fine :)
19:51 timotimo i didn't really get what fixed xliffs code right now
19:53 arnsholt Far as I could make out, he didn't obey the protocol for nqp::bindattr
19:53 arnsholt The type object passed has to be the type where the attr is *declared*, not the type of the object you're passing in (which is what he was doing)
19:54 arnsholt So if you pass in the B object, but the attr is declared in A the name to attribute map will return NULL
19:54 arnsholt Because the attr doesn't actually exist in B, it's in A
20:00 [Coke] timotimo: which timtoady interview?
20:02 arnsholt [Coke]: https://developers.slashdot.org/story/16/07/14/1349207/the-slashdot-interview-with-larry-wall
20:09 [Coke] ah, slashdot. danke.
20:15 timotimo OK, that makes a lot of sense
20:29 Ven joined #moarvm
20:34 [Coke] Does he need to be using nqp ops here?
20:36 timotimo the code here is golfed; dunno how the original code looks, so can't answer that
