14:01 * moritz_ wonders if rakudo will be pretty usable once the lex branch is merged
14:02 PerlJam Are you saying that rakudo isn't "pretty usable" now?  ;)
14:02 moritz_ PerlJam: exactly
14:03 masak PerlJam: in a way, I'd tend to agree
14:03 masak the lex thingy is devastating, actually
14:03 PerlJam Me too, but you've built a november from this thing, so it has some use
14:03 masak PerlJam: you should see the things we could've done if the lex thing were fixed :P
14:03 moritz_ that's "ugly usable", not "pretty usable" ;-)
14:03 PerlJam rakudo is similar to perl 4 in this regard I guess
14:03 PerlJam moritz++
14:05 masak PerlJam: you could do recursion in Perl 4.
14:05 PerlJam you can do recursion in rakudo too  :)
14:05 masak not the cool kind.
14:08 PerlJam Looking at november recently, all of the things I find interesting to work on are changes to rakudo.  This is probably a good thing along one axis, but definitely a bad thing along another.
14:08 masak PerlJam: definitely a good thing from my perspective.
14:19 masak PerlJam: anything special you have in mind?
14:19 masak (if not, I might have a few suggestions)
14:19 * masak missed @array.splice the other day
14:20 PerlJam suggest away, I haven't really decided what I'm going to work on other than I started on a NCI for sqlite because I wanted to refamiliarize myself with NCI
14:20 masak I think there shouldn't be anything blocking @array.splice
14:27 masak a slightly harder thing to do would be array slices :)
14:27 masak I think that's something that jonathan will have to do
