02:55 sivoais plicease++ # wonderful stuff
03:32 willthechill joined #native
07:39 plicease thanks!
09:43 plicease Also added some documentation tweaks:
09:43 plicease https://github.com/Perl5-Alien/Alien-Base/pull/184/commits/e1bfd964b07cbcc2fd520becfdd66681bca50bdf
10:56 plicease Not confident at all that CPAN will be usable with 5.26 when it is released, but at least Alien::Base is ready for a world with @INC without '.'
12:26 plicease http://blogs.perl.org/users/graham_ollis/2017/03/alienbuild-vs-alienbasemodulebuild.html
14:30 jberger yeah, that's going to be a mess
14:31 jberger shows some of the short-sightedness of the concept of bundling Module::Install in installers
14:31 jberger that works assuming nothing in perl EVER changes which would break it
14:31 jberger but that's a pretty massive assumption and indeed part of the reason that extensions to a language exist, to mitigate changes like that by updating auxiliary code
15:01 plicease Also, it has been backported into Debian testing's version of Perl
15:01 plicease which I expect to become stable this year (?)
15:02 plicease I expect a lot of PERL_USE_UNSAFE_INC
15:02 plicease once stuff is installed it doesn't break much for me.
16:17 jberger no, mostly the problem is install phase
16:17 jberger I've heard enough of the innuendo to guess where the actual problem was, and it was terrifying
