16:45 Chirag_ With respect to signatures, for instance in PiSoIp  -->>   i = self  ;  o = ??  ;  p = ??
16:51 Chirag_ Util: ?
17:07 Util Chirag_: Here
17:07 Chirag_ Hey!
17:07 Util Hi
17:07 Chirag_ I was wondering if you could help me with this --
17:07 Util So, you need to know what o and p mean?
17:08 Chirag_ yes
17:08 Util Give me a minute...
17:08 Chirag_ sure..
17:14 Util Chirag_:  The docs are incomplete about that, so I am reading the code. Will you be around for the next 30 minutes?
17:15 Chirag_ yes.. I will be .. But if you are busy I can manage without knowing it for now :)
17:16 Util I will do it now, but thanks for offering.
17:16 Chirag_ thanks a lot!
17:22 Util Chirag_: 'o' means 'optional', 'p' means 'opt_flag' for the previous 'o'.
17:22 Util See `less +130 lib/Parrot/Pmc2c/PCCMETHOD.pm` for the full list.
17:22 Util What other questions can I help with?
17:22 Chirag_ thanks for that!
17:24 Util yw
17:24 Chirag_ rurban mentioned there is no switch-case for perl5  .. I am new to perl but this page says -- import a module for switch -- http://perldoc.perl.org/5.8.8/Switch.html
17:25 Chirag_ Should I be avoiding it ?
17:26 FROGGS yes you should
17:26 FROGGS Switch is broken in many ways
17:26 FROGGS and the successor given/when is experimental and will be removed
17:27 FROGGS so, if/elsif is your friend
17:27 Chirag_ FROGGS: oh! thanks a lot for that..
17:27 Util Chirag_: perl5140delta.pod (Perl 5.14.0): L<Switch> has been removed from the Perl core.
17:27 Util Thx, FROGGS !
