14:23 masak viklund: dz
14:23 viklund masak: I've written the perl6-recursion program entierly in PIR, from scratch, it works!
14:24 masak viklund: kudos.
14:24 viklund now I'm thinking about slowly converting it into the perl6-compiled version
14:24 viklund it's really short
14:24 masak viklund++
14:24 masak could you paste it?
14:24 viklund http://paste2.org/p/69834
14:25 masak viklund++ # coding in PIR
14:25 viklund I think the problems will start once we start using PMCs
14:25 masak aye.
14:27 masak methinks you should post that code to #58392, to avoid duplicated effort
14:27 viklund why?
14:27 viklund it's really easy to write
14:27 masak as you wish :)
14:27 viklund there was a recursive function example in the parrot intro.pod
14:27 masak aha :)
14:27 viklund 'factorial' of course
14:28 masak so you haven't reduced our example, but built from scratch?
14:29 viklund yep
14:29 viklund I thought expanding that until it fails
14:30 viklund was a better strategy since I didn't know PIR it was a better aproach
14:30 viklund I'm writing funnily today
14:31 viklund should go home and learn grammar or something.
14:31 viklund there should have been a comma between 'strategy' and 'since'
14:31 moritz_ grammar is overrated
14:33 * masak has learnt chinese grammar all day
14:33 masak I vehemently disagree about grammar being overrated
14:33 masak it's underrated! :)
14:35 masak also, it's kind of a miraculous coincidence that you can speak about things like NP and VP in a language as different as Chinese
14:40 masak is someone able to interpret the content of http://use.perl.org/comments​.pl?sid=40861&cid=64734 ?
14:40 masak I tried iconv, and the most promising setting was -f utf-8 -t iso-8859-1
14:41 masak but iconv chokes a few characters into the text
14:45 viklund masak: have you looked at the source?
14:46 masak no, why?
14:46 viklund it's only character classes
14:46 * masak doesn't understand
14:47 viklund it's: 'неоÐ&#191...'
14:47 masak anyways, I removed the Ñ's and now iconv swallows it
14:47 viklund ah
14:47 masak "неопеделеннми", not "не опеделеннми" in this case; - "еализован", not "елизован"
14:47 masak hope the Ñ's didn't convey anything important :)
14:47 viklund heh, lot's of squares...
14:48 masak get a better font :)
14:48 viklund usually it dosn't choke on anything...
14:48 viklund any recomendation?
14:52 masak no, Just Works over here
14:53 masak mind you, might be b0rked encodings, so try producing some Cyrillic letters yourself
14:54 moritz_ which encoding is borked?
14:54 moritz_ masak's are fine
14:54 masak moritz_: sorry, I'm using "encoding" a bit sloppily :)
