19:16 Tene HAI
19:19 masak I'm trying to do lists in November, but it's not going too well.
19:19 masak first, it's a tricky problem, but I think I have a way to do it.
19:19 masak second, Rakudo keeps getting in the way.
19:20 moritz_ man, I'd like to do some actual Perl 6 hacking, but too much stress these days
19:20 masak moritz_: Ph.D.?
19:20 Tene Anything specific you want me to look at in rakudo?
19:20 moritz_ writing 4 Perl 6 articles, maintaining a test suite, trying to study at the same time...
19:20 masak Tene: oh yes, please! http://use.perl.org/~masak/journal/38353
19:20 zarah masak's link is also http://tinyurl.com/c7tbgp
19:21 moritz_ masak: no, I'll still need at least 6 months for the stupid diploma thing
19:21 masak zarah: shut up.
19:21 zarah masak: :)
19:21 masak moritz_: ok.
19:21 masak Tene: jonathan already looked at bug #1, and pronounced it Harder Than He Thought. but that's the least important one anyway.
19:26 moritz_ I'm writing about a few major Rakudo features...
19:26 moritz_ and so far I've got OO, grammars and multi dispatcher
19:26 Tene oh, the hash one?
19:26 Tene I think that looked like a PCT bug.
19:26 masak unh.
19:26 moritz_ are there any other outstanding features that Rakudo does very well?
19:27 Tene moritz_: junctions work fairly well.  Not perfectly, but pretty good.
19:27 masak moritz_: yes, I find that all the control flow things work very well these days.
19:27 masak for, loop, while, given, gather, if...
19:28 moritz_ thank you both
19:28 Tene with next/last/redo
19:28 Tene Exceptions are okay.
19:29 masak haven't used those much, save for the hidden ones. :)
19:29 Tene :)
19:31 Tene moritz_: you could also mention eval(... :lang<...>)
19:31 Tene ;)
19:31 moritz_ Tene: that's actually very good idea
19:39 Tene The big problem with that is that it doesn't report errors.
19:40 Tene So if the load_bytecode fails, or if the program doesn't compile, it just does nothing.
