07:30 jjuran With respect to I/O of entire file contents, what is the inverse of 'slurp'?
07:36 cognominal last line to the first?  cuz last char to the first does not make sense to me. Not that I have an answer
07:38 jjuran No, given a byte stream in memory and a file handle, write the entire stream out to the file.
07:38 jjuran I'm wondering if there's a canonical term.  I came up with 'spray'.
07:41 Infinoid flush?
07:41 purl it has been said that flush is $=$$;
07:44 jjuran Hmmm.  'Flush' tends to refer to writes that have already been issued, but not completed.
07:47 Infinoid true.  but it still makes more sense to me than spray, sorry :)
07:48 jjuran How about spew? :-)
07:48 Infinoid that works!
07:48 Infinoid hwarf
07:50 Infinoid its unconventional, but does have connotations of fully formed output
07:50 Infinoid don't mind me, I'm up too late.  goodnight!
07:50 jjuran LOL

13:49 svnbotl r26518 | infinoid++ | trunk:
13:49 svnbotl : [config] Pass "--grep=^git-svn-id:" to "git log" in Parrot::Revision
13:49 svnbotl : This prevents it from trying to determine the non-existent revision in a
13:49 svnbotl : local commit.
13:49 svnbotl : This fixes a bug I introduced in r26514.  Patch provided by Matt Kraai in
13:52 bgeron is http://images.use.perl.org/topics/parrot.gif the official Parrot logo?
13:52 * bgeron tries packaging for zeroinstall
13:54 Infinoid I don't think so
13:54 Infinoid http://svn.perl.org/parrot/trun​k/examples/sdl/parrot_small.png
13:55 bgeron hmm okay
13:55 Infinoid that's used by examples/sdl/bounce_parrot_logo.pir and its officialness is strongly implied
13:55 * bgeron was thinking of using only the parrot, but better have this if it's official
13:58 Infinoid I don't know if its official, but it is used by parrotcode.org's favicon
13:59 bgeron I'll try and see if it's still recognizable after scaling
13:59 davidfetter has anybody copyrighted "the parrot in association with parrot?"
13:59 * davidfetter recalls some major hassle around "the camel in association with perl." :P
13:59 bgeron I can't svn-checkout https://svn.perl.org/perl.​org/docs/live/parrotcode/ (the web site repos), does anyone know more about it?
14:01 bgeron guest/guest login fails
14:02 Infinoid http://www.parrotcode.org/images/parrot.small.png looks familiar
14:03 bgeron yes, but it's so small :(
14:03 bgeron oh, that one o:)
14:03 Infinoid and there was also apparently a t-shirt made... http://images.cafepress.com/prod​uct/3125077v1_150x150_Front.jpg
14:03 shorten Infinoid's url is at http://xrl.us/bh49m
14:04 bgeron those smalls are the same image
14:04 Infinoid ack doesn't report anything else logo-related in that repository.
14:04 bgeron I'll just use http://www.parrotcode.org/images/parrot.small.png :)

14:43 jonathan hi all
14:43 kj hi jonathan
14:43 jonathan Am making my return to the Parrot and Rakudo world at last.
14:43 davidfetter wb!
14:44 jonathan First job: reviewing cognominal++'s Rakudo patch...
14:48 davidfetter rakudo?
14:48 purl rakudo is The Way Of The Camel. or having some failing tests as of 22JAN08 or Gotta Catch 'Em All or in languages/perl6 (see http://parrotvm.org/svn/parrot​/browse/trunk/languages/perl6) or http://use.perl.org/~pmichaud/journal/35400 or http://rakudo.org or camel toe
14:51 jonathan Rakudo = name for Perl 6 on Parrot
14:51 davidfetter ah
14:51 jonathan Though I managed to mis-spell it on my first few check-ins.
14:51 davidfetter heh
15:00 kj PCT Tutorial episode 8 is published! One to go
15:00 Infinoid kj++ # writing them faster than I can read them!
15:01 kj I'm jobless ;-)
15:02 kj (not for long, luckily)

15:19 * Infinoid stares at RT #52028 and fails to understand it
15:20 Infinoid (the problem is clear enough, I just don't grok the patch)

18:26 cognominal thx jonathan, I will have a patch more correct because   :a is not a => True   but   :a(1)
18:26 cognominal what are you working on so I don't trip too much on what you do?
18:27 Psyche^ joined #parrot
18:31 jonathan cognominal: I'm looking at pairs bit of your patch at the moment.
18:31 jonathan I've tidied up your .perl implementation a bit.
18:32 jonathan Not sure they should stringify like they .perl, but can't see anything in the spec saying what should happen - did you find something?
18:32 jonathan Writing a mail as I work through the patch, anyway.
18:36 cognominal I did not found anything, also I don't know if one .perl should say Bool::True (like pugs I thik) or True
18:36 jonathan Bool::True, I think.
18:51 svnbotl r26524 | jonathan++ | trunk:
18:51 svnbotl : [rakudo] Fixes to colonpair action. Patch courtesy of cognominal++.

22:28 * jonathan is going to be at the Oslo QA Hackathon.
22:30 jonathan Because I haven't been to a Perl event in almost a month, and I'll miss all the May ones because I'm off to wander around the Middle East.
22:31 jrt4 What is resume_offset for in struct parrot_interp_t? And what exactly do the RESUME_INITIAL and RESUME_RESTART flags mean?
22:32 jrt4 I've been digging around in the docs / sources related to continuations / exceptions, which seems to be the right area, but I can't find a clear answer ...
22:43 jonathan jrt4: I think it just tells the interpreter, when you enter a run-loop, where to start executing code.
22:45 jonathan I think it is mostly useful when you fall out of one runloop and need to enter another, or something along those lines...
22:46 jonathan Especially in branches that cross the run-loop boundary.
22:46 jonathan See for example Parrot_branch_cs_sc (opcode_t *cur_opcode, PARROT_INTERP)  {
22:47 * jonathan heads off for the evening
22:48 jrt4 OK, thank you. So it's for things like JIT?
22:48 jonathan I think, runloops in general.
22:49 jonathan But I'd imagine if you need to exit the JIT to hit some un-JITted code or something, yeah.
22:49 jrt4 Got it. Thanks again :)
22:49 jonathan Or code that is on another runloop generally.
22:49 jonathan Applies to the slow core too, etc.
22:49 jonathan Welcome.
22:49 purl Heh, not likely around here you won't be.
22:50 * jonathan sticks a gnome up purl's butt
22:50 jonathan </fawlty_towers_reference>
22:53 * jonathan goes to read his book
22:54 cognominal jonathan, will you be able to make it for   http://conferences.mongueurs.net/fpw2008/
23:42 * bgeron feels all warm and fuzzy about 0launch http://quackcode.org/2008/interfaces/parrot.xml working on my box
23:47 cotto_home kj++ for episode #8
23:49 cotto_home karma for kj
23:49 purl kj has karma of 4
23:49 cotto_home karma for kjs
23:49 purl kjs has karma of 637
23:50 cotto_home it'd be nice if purl resolve different aliases of the same person
