01:23 waxhead <grumble>... all I wanted to do was build a mythfrontend.... and I still don't have it working!
01:24 waxhead and now I can't find my USB stick I was going to fallback to using as a boot option...
01:24 waxhead sigh
01:34 waxhead I also need to get back to the dev list about that question.. plenty of responses...

04:57 Xaero When I check out from PPI cvs it says: cvs checkout: dying gasps from parseperl.cvs.sourceforge.net unexpected. Any idea why?

05:02 Alias_ Xaero: Because that repository has been unused for 2 years?
05:02 Xaero :O
05:02 Xaero then which one do you use?
05:03 Alias_ http://svn.ali.as/cpan/PPI
05:12 szabgab good morning
05:14 SvenDowideit_ oh gosh, I'm just doing a little minor work in some horrid code (ie, methods that are way too large) and realised that as i search around, it'd really useful to instantly be aware what function you're in
05:14 SvenDowideit_ the only idea i had, was to assign different colour backgrounds
05:16 waxhead what about the outline view having the method highlighted ?
05:17 SvenDowideit_ that is useful, but.. it would require shifting focus
05:18 SvenDowideit_ in this (possibly inane case) this class has about 10 different functions, about half are >300 lines long
05:18 SvenDowideit_ and what might help is knowing when the search (i'm doing alot of them to try to find commonalities) goes from one func to the other - and over time i'll recal what function is what colour
05:22 waxhead maybe... what happens when you get a lot of functions?
05:22 waxhead it would be a rainbow of colours
05:23 * Xaero likes colours
05:31 kaare joined #padre
05:43 SvenDowideit_ y - i'm not sure if a rainbow is a bad thing tho
06:01 szabgab SvenDowideit_, I just so an IDE that reminded me a bit of what I remember from VB
06:02 szabgab where they have a drop-down menu at the top of the page listing all the subs in the current file
06:02 szabgab that allows you to jump to any sub
06:02 SvenDowideit_ oooo, i remember that from VB 1.0 for DOS
06:02 SvenDowideit_ y, and updates as the cursor moves
06:02 szabgab this could be use also in the other way
06:02 waxhead its' in the current visual studio
06:03 SvenDowideit_ thing in this case is taht having to look up there would be a distraction
06:03 waxhead I don't use it much, but my college does
06:03 szabgab I saw it in some other editor but the idea was probably taken from VS
06:03 SvenDowideit_ whereas i'm 'awishing' for a fun plugin that would allow me to customs define a way to use background colours to help me show what context i happen to be in
06:04 szabgab or maybe to read out the name of the sub aloud ?
06:05 szabgab there was also another drop-down menu to the left of it
06:06 szabgab that listed all the libraries (modules in our case)
06:06 szabgab that are available in the code
06:06 szabgab or maybe that was a list of all the libraries in the system that could be used?
06:07 SvenDowideit_ pass :)
06:07 waxhead szabgab, I think it's the project's classes
06:07 SvenDowideit_ my desktop has audio off  - and i'm listening to musack, but yup
06:22 * Alias_ mails the list to announce success for Task 2.0
06:22 Alias_ Padre-TaskRewrite can now boot up the IDE and shut down cleanly
06:22 Alias_ Running both the old and new task managers simultaneously
06:23 szabgab nice work
06:23 szabgab are you back home ?
06:23 Alias_ Still a ton of work to do, but the core jobs of spawning threads and communicating in both directions down and up are done
06:23 Alias_ Yup
06:23 Alias_ Got back Tuesday (for some definition of Tuesday)
06:24 Alias_ Jetlag mostly cleared, though I'm still getting up a few hours early
06:24 Alias_ I really want to get this new Task API landed and properly working before the anniversay
06:25 Alias_ anniversary
06:25 Alias_ So we can direct the flood of people for the birthday party to new and interesting areas that were previously way too hard to solve
06:26 Alias_ But first, I gotta run out to the shops to buy a cable before they close
06:54 Punithan joined #padre
06:56 Punithan I need to run a perl script through command prompt
06:56 Punithan But it does not giving me any answer..
06:57 waxhead Punithan, are you running the script from the command line?
06:57 waxhead Punithan, windows?
06:57 Punithan My script is "print \"HAI\";"
06:57 Punithan yes
06:57 Punithan trying to run ot from command line
06:57 Punithan Windows 7
06:58 waxhead Punithan, is that what you have in the text file?
06:58 waxhead so, for example, you have a text file called hello.pl
06:58 Punithan i created the script using padre editor.
06:58 waxhead and in that you just need to put: print 'Hia';
06:58 waxhead ok.. so you saved the file?
06:59 waxhead and from the command are trying to execute it?
06:59 waxhead in windows to just run the hello.pl file, the .pl file extension has to be registered and the perl interpretter as the application to invoke when running it
06:59 waxhead otherwise as long as perl is in the path:
07:00 waxhead perl hello.pl
07:00 Punithan Yes created the file using padre with content as "print \"HAI\";"
07:00 Punithan file name as new.pl
07:00 waxhead ok
07:00 waxhead so perl new.pl
07:00 waxhead however your print statement is wrong
07:00 waxhead you should get an error
07:00 waxhead the line should just be:
07:00 waxhead print 'HIA';
07:00 waxhead or to get the new line:
07:00 waxhead print "HAI\n";
07:01 Punithan Nothing has come
07:01 waxhead do you have a command prompt open?
07:01 Punithan let me try..Should I use shebang in the new file?
07:02 waxhead Punithan, not needed on windows
07:02 waxhead it's a unix thing... where the command processor will parse the text file and invoke the #! line if it finds one
07:05 Punithan Yes got it correct...Why it didnot return me error previously?
07:06 Xaero the use strict; use warnings; were missing?
07:06 waxhead Punithan, Xaero hit the nail on the head..
07:07 waxhead you need to tell perl to warning you when you make mistakes and tell perl to be 'strict' with the rules...
07:07 Punithan Ok..fine..One more question..if I use perl -e new.pl
07:07 Xaero NO!
07:07 Punithan Nothing has come.
07:07 Xaero just perl new.pl
07:07 Xaero or perl -e "print \"Hello World\""
07:07 waxhead -e is used to execute a 'one liner'
07:08 Punithan Ok..Thanks ..
07:08 waxhead oh.. that's there all those double quotes came from...
07:08 Punithan Ok..fine..I got it..
07:08 Xaero yeah, windows style :P

09:31 Sewi Alias: We used to reach the top 5 - from the bottom! This is the 2nd time we won :-)
09:37 Adam__ Ah :)
09:54 Alias__ grrr, another machine that rapidsvn won't let me commit to the Padre repository
09:55 Alias__ But it WILL let me commit to my repository
09:55 Xaero have you used sliksvn?
09:55 szabgab Sewi, ??
09:55 Alias__ Xaero, I'll install it
09:56 Xaero i don't think it's free, csjewell kept asking me to install it though, saying it's free
09:56 Xaero apparently that's what he uses
10:01 Alias__ Nope, it fails
10:01 Xaero sliksvn?
10:02 Sewi joined #padre
10:04 Xaero do you have java?
10:05 Alias__ Probably
10:05 Alias__ What would that do?
10:06 Alias__ Load a different dll?
10:06 * Alias__ fires up SysInternals

10:32 Adam__ This is stupid
10:32 Alias___ Why the hell would this particular combination of stuff matter
10:36 Alias___ It breaks on some machines but not on others on the same network. It breaks on the Padre repository, but not on my one.
