13:26 masak o/
14:26 eiro \o
14:39 masak I think I'll be getting some Web.pm work done this weekend.
14:39 masak not sure exactly what yet.
14:39 masak but I'm sure there are things to do. :)
14:47 eiro hehe
14:48 eiro still no time for personnal works. still loosing my time with koha
14:48 eiro very frustrating
14:51 eiro is there an http client lib in perl6? it can be used to store things in couchdb servers (waitong for DBI)
14:54 masak eiro: I think there was some unpublished work on an HTTP client.
14:54 masak but nothing in the Ecosystem, no.
14:54 masak eiro: if you outline what it is you need for an HTTP client, I'm sure #perl6 can whip something up for you.
14:58 eiro masak, it was just an idea: no investiguation
14:59 eiro so i can't tell.
14:59 masak ok.
14:59 eiro what's the best strategy to add a lib in perl6 ? NCI or perl6 rewrite ?
15:01 eiro i mean: i imagine that NCI bindings would be faster than perl6 code. so, for exemple: isn't it simpler/better to add a curl binding than to rewrite from scratch ftp and http clients ?
15:07 masak I would imagine that NCI is often a good alternative.
16:09 Tene NCI is often pretty easy.  If you need to deal with callbacks from C, it gets a bit more complicated.
16:09 Tene eiro: I'd be glad to help you with NCI if you'd like.
16:12 * masak would like some of that kind of help too
16:14 Tene masak: I'd be glad to help you with NCI if you'd like.
16:15 masak :)
16:15 Tene masak: I was tired last night of waiting for the pcc branch to land, so I hacked on it a bit.  Got a couple of minor patches in.  Calling a function with named params still doesn't work. :)
16:16 masak Tene: did you have some time to look at why I can't start quietfanatic++'s gamebase?
16:16 Tene oh, the sdl thing?
16:17 Tene I had time available, yes.  I didn't remember that I was supposed to do that, though.
16:17 masak :P
16:17 masak it's just that I'm so curious. I'd like to see the breakout game.
16:19 Tene you just need to figure out what the name of the SDL library is on your system and ask parrot to load it.
16:21 masak that sounds promising.
16:22 masak but I tried the one idea I had -- using locate to find installed copies of libSDL
16:22 masak and that didn't work.
16:23 eiro Tene, thanks for the proposal. i have tons of things i want to test but i promise you i'll ask if i try to bind curl
16:24 eiro (perhaps the Qnetwork would be a best idea as there are still jobs done on QT)
16:31 Tene masak: try running it with strace to see what files it tries to open when you specify the filename like that.
16:38 masak Tene: ooh, good idea.
16:38 Tene that's what I always do. :)
16:38 Tene I always feel kinda like I'm cheating when I use strace to solve weird problems like that... :)
16:38 masak hm, I don't seem to have strace...
16:38 Tene ACK
16:46 eiro damn it! YA zsh pb! one of the think i expect the most with perl6 is a parrot based drop-in for legacy (s)hells
16:47 eiro s/drop-in/replacement/
16:47 eiro well ... chsh -s /bin/parrot-interactive-sh
