19:31 whiteknight WHAT I DID:
19:31 whiteknight * Added PCRE bindings (RegExp et al) to Jaesop
19:31 whiteknight * Started adding some runtime stuff to Jaesop, including basic file/console IO and command-line arguments
19:31 whiteknight * A scant handful of other small picks in Parrot and Rosella. Little else.
19:31 whiteknight WHAT I WILL DO:
19:31 whiteknight * I have some Rosella cleanups coming.
19:31 whiteknight * More additions for Jaesop
19:31 whiteknight EOR
19:33 cotto *did:
19:33 cotto * a little M0 hacking
19:33 cotto * looking at other VMS to see how they deal with types
19:33 cotto *todo
19:33 cotto * look at CPUs, since M0 will allegedly run on them
19:33 cotto any more late reports?
19:34 whiteknight hello
19:34 bubaflub joined #parrotsketch
19:34 cotto hi
19:35 Util Hello
19:35 benabik o/
19:36 cotto How's the week been?
19:36 nine Well, I worked on tasks and will continue to do so ;)
19:37 * Util is still snowed under with $WORK
19:37 cotto Rakudo knocked out a release, so the nqp brokenness should be not broken.
19:39 cotto Is anyone running into issues that need attention?
19:40 tadzik Is non-relocatable Parrot considered a problem?
19:41 cotto tadzik: is it a problem for you?
19:41 tadzik cotto: it is a problem for Rakudo Star
19:42 cotto That's no good.
19:42 cotto Is discussion about it happening somewhere?
19:42 tadzik I wanted to carry out some investigation and present it today on #ps, but I stumbled upon a lack of $time
19:42 tadzik it appears from time to time I believe, everyone's treating this as a fact of life, methinks
19:42 whiteknight what's the problem?
19:44 tadzik (if anyone is able to explain this in one sentence, please do, I apparently can't wrap in it words atm)
19:45 cotto If nothign else, I'll make an effort to bring it up at #phasers tomorrow
19:45 tadzik that'd be great
19:45 whiteknight okay, I can take a look at it, if somebody can explain what it is I am looking at
19:45 cotto same here
19:48 cotto Is there anything else to discuss?
19:49 whiteknight I don't think so. This seemed like a slow week
19:49 cotto We've had a couple of those recently.
19:52 cotto looks like there's a bit of discussion on #perl6 about what the non-relocatability is about
19:53 benabik Short version, IIUC: Parrot depends on being inside $prefix.
19:53 dukeleto joined #parrotsketch
19:53 whiteknight ah, okay. So it's an installation issue then?
19:53 benabik This is not uncommon for Linux programs, but Windows and Mac apps often have ways to deal with it.
19:53 dukeleto ~~
19:53 * benabik -> class
19:54 * cotto hands dukeleto a party hat
19:55 whiteknight okay, unless duke has something to add, I say we call it a wrap
19:56 * dukeleto will be in #parrot
19:56 cotto It sounds like part of the problem is that most of us come from a Linux background and aren't aware of the issues of relocatability.
19:57 cotto we can continue discussing the relocatability issue elsewhere.  Let's call it a wrap.
