16:32 ilbot2 joined #november-wiki
16:38 moritz_ joined #november-wiki
16:38 * moritz_ and the server are back ;)
16:38 masak moritz_ and server: welcome back :)
16:38 masak viklund++ has the first workaround to #58392!
16:38 moritz_ how so?
16:39 masak he's using eval and sufficiently dark tricks
16:39 viklund the sub is a string
16:39 moritz_ uhm
16:39 moritz_ that's *evil*
16:39 viklund the second argument is the sub - as a string
16:40 masak performance will go to hell, but it will be correct :)
18:00 masak tonight's award-winning comment from viklund re his hack: "It's a bit tricky to read what you've written..."
18:01 viklund huzzah! It works! ;)
18:02 masak viklund: you're insane. :) viklund++
18:14 viklund hmm, now it doesn't
18:18 viklund it lives again!
18:37 moritz_ masak: have you seen chromatic's reply to #58392
18:38 masak no, will check immediately
18:38 moritz_ If you or Carl can provide a PIR program which exhibits he problem, I'll fix
18:38 moritz_ it.
18:39 masak moritz_: ok, that's good news
18:39 masak I've been looking at the generated PIR
18:39 masak but haven't seen a problem in it by eye
18:40 masak but chromatic is asking for a standalone PIR program that exhibits the problem, yes?
18:40 moritz_ probably :(
18:40 masak how does one go about creating such a program?
18:40 moritz_ dunno, my PIR is too bad
18:40 masak is it enough to compile a piece of Perl 6 code down to PIR
18:40 masak ?
18:41 moritz_ that doesn't run without modification yet
18:41 masak compile+modify+send to chromatic, then?
18:41 moritz_ you can try, at least
18:42 * masak tries
18:42 masak I _really_ want #58392 to go away
18:42 moritz_ he'll complain if he wants a non-perl6.pbc-dependant thing
18:42 masak ah, that's the issue, of course
18:42 masak possibly.
19:15 * masak and viklund are positive about generating pure PIR right now
19:15 masak adventures in PIR land! yay!
19:16 * moritz_ always appends ; when writing PIR, and parrot complains noisily
19:16 masak haha :)
19:16 moritz_ at least the error message is quite good
19:27 masak moritz_: we've narrowed it down to this: http://paste2.org/p/69578
19:27 masak there are still quite a bit of Rakudo deps in there
19:28 masak I think we'll send it to chromatic like this, and then he can complain if he wants
19:36 masak time to call it a night&
19:36 moritz_ good night then ;)
19:37 masak likewise :)
