Time Nick Message
00:12 mohawk plicease, i asked a Q on NC PR#1
00:14 mohawk i can see there's a test, so i assume it actually behaves right with your change, i'd just like to understand :-)
00:22 plicease commented.  hopefully it makes sense?
00:23 plicease bascially because there are (s and )s in the closure specficiation if you aren't greedy the match stops in the middle of the type
00:50 mohawk plicease, so you're saying the RE has to grab the whole thing and then process from there?
00:50 plicease correct.
00:51 plicease The closure.t test makes sure that it is parsing multiple closures out correctly.
00:53 mohawk cool
00:53 plicease This insight was largely thanks to the dc.pm meeting last December
00:54 mohawk ha ha, cool
00:54 plicease I just coded up what we had figured out as a group and made the PR :)
00:54 mohawk merged, making release
00:55 plicease mohawk++
00:55 plicease I still haven't had a chance to use it :/
00:55 plicease but I will.
00:57 mohawk uploaded 0.006
00:57 mohawk plicease++
00:57 plicease dc.pm++
00:58 mohawk the coolest thing about this for me is that dc.pm was looking at this stuff, that's pretty neat
00:58 mohawk i really do need to make a "h2nc" tool
00:59 mohawk that will knock h2ph into a cocked hat
00:59 mohawk all part of my plan for Gimp-Perl to convert the libgimp-interfacing bits of XS into FFI
01:00 mohawk i'll also need to make an integration with ExtUtils::Depends
01:00 mohawk probably in the style of Inline's "with" option
01:00 plicease I was working on an h2ffi but that has stalled
01:01 mohawk got anything that you can share?
01:01 mohawk especially if you can make an "issue" on my repo and link to on that :-)
01:03 plicease I am not sure that it is useful except for lessons learned in a potential reboot
01:03 plicease but this is it:
01:03 plicease https://github.com/plicease/FFI-Echidna
01:03 plicease the idea was to have a framework when you could write lang2ffi
01:04 plicease where lang is variable
01:04 plicease potentially the could be variable too
01:04 plicease but I think it was too ambitious
01:13 mohawk yes
01:14 mohawk well, i'm not thinking about anything about pairing up with C
01:14 mohawk if it becomes possible to generalise after that, so be it
01:22 mohawk https://github.com/mohawk2/nativecall/issues/5
01:39 plicease "potentially thhe could be variable too" should have been "potentially the target ffi could be variable too, perl 5, perl 6, ruby"
01:39 plicease works are hard
01:48 willthechill joined #native
01:56 willthechill plicease:  I was surprised to see that you are not (yet?) a member of the Perl5-Alien organization on github...   https://github.com/orgs/Perl5-Alien/people
01:57 plicease interesting.  I was listed as private for some reason.
01:57 plicease should be there now.
02:01 willthechill AH okay yes I see you listed now
17:59 plicease if i see
17:59 plicease i like
21:25 willthechill plicease: huh?
21:25 plicease wrong window.
21:28 willthechill ah okay!
