09:49 plicease jberger: https://github.com/Perl5-Alien/Alien/commit/89848a5ce6a0a9f9c90272adbb78d6f4e5dee4f9
09:50 plicease I will probably do another release in a couple of days.
09:51 plicease I also added a paragraph about Windows, after re-reading some of chm's complaints about Windows support
09:51 plicease https://github.com/Perl5-Alien/Alien/commit/03e02df3050b98409b7d36ed55e27ee7a71f6bbb
09:52 plicease I believe Alien::MSYS and Alien::Base addresses the most common Windows issues, though Windows will always be a challenge.
10:19 slimer joined #native
13:29 genio I'm still convinced I'm going to have to write a Perl version of the Python GYP tool
19:05 preaction did Google really name a project that?
19:06 preaction https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GYP_(software) <- wow. they did...
19:09 genio yep and things like libuv, etc. use it
19:12 genio https://github.com/libuv/libuv/blob/v1.x/uv.gyp
19:13 preaction ugh. that's also pretty terrible. why didn't they go with what waf does?
19:15 preaction ... sigh. well i figured that out at least: waf's docs are also pretty terrible.
19:15 genio did waf exist when libuv started?
19:15 preaction waf purports to have copyright from 2005
19:16 preaction i was meaning more why is the metadata file a json document instead of something more flexible that doesn't require string eval?
19:17 genio yea, things like https://github.com/libuv/libuv/blob/v1.x/uv.gyp#L170 bother me a lot
