19:30 Util Pre-report:
19:30 Util # Done:
19:30 Util * Attended YAPC::NA::2014
19:30 Util * Asked Gizmo to have the Math specialist look into Perl 6 [S09] and any other sci-comp parts of the specs.
19:30 Util s/specialist/specialists/
19:30 Util # Doing:
19:30 Util * Recovering from attending YAPC::NA::2014 :^)
19:30 Util * Brushing off my dusty worklist.
19:30 Util .end
19:31 Util Hello! Who all is in attendance?
19:31 Chirag_ Me
19:31 Util Hi!
19:31 Chirag_ Hey!
19:32 Util Chirag_: I am behind on #parrot logs; did you get an answer to your lib/Parrot/Pmc2c/PCCMETHOD.pm problem from last week?
19:32 Chirag_ yes.. rurban helped me out
19:32 Util Great
19:33 Chirag_ I will give my report in a min..
19:34 Util I was just about to ask :^)
19:37 Chirag_ #Done:
19:37 Chirag_ *Replaced call for Parrot_pcc_fill_params_from_c_args()
19:37 Chirag_ *Also coded to replace Parrot_pcc_set_call_from_c_args(). However, rurban has handled this part because :optional sigs required more tedious work
19:37 Chirag_ #Doing:
19:37 Chirag_ *Testing rurban's branch - rurban/pcc-gh1080
19:37 Chirag_ #TODO:
19:37 Chirag_ *GSoC Weekly Report
19:37 Chirag_ .end
19:40 Util So, So, pcc-gh1080 is your work in replacding the call in Parrot_pcc_fill_params_from_c_args,
19:41 Util and pcc-opt-gh1080 is the Parrot_pcc_set_call_from_c_args work with the extra :optional ?
19:41 Util s/replacding/replacing/
19:42 Chirag_ yes.. but rurban has added code to check the arity, param_count at run-time and based on that decide :optional
19:43 Util OK
19:43 Chirag_ I did come up with a prototype to handle :optional but I had no idea about arity/param_count requirements
19:45 Util It *is* a bit complex.
19:46 Chirag_ even he felt it's too much for a GSoC project but I didnt know better ...so I was game :D
19:48 * Util looks at code.
19:49 Util I am glad that you were game to try, and also glad that you did not have to navigate that problem space. Hairy!
19:49 Chirag_ :)
19:50 Util Any blockers this week? What is your next step after testing gh1080?
19:50 Chirag_ no blockers.. I am not sure about what next..
19:50 Chirag_ Maybe a new task
19:53 Util will you complete your GSoC Weekly Report today? (Well, in 24 hours; I know it is late where you are.)
19:53 Chirag_ yes.. in a day for sure
19:53 Util Great!
19:53 Util Anything else to discuss? From anyone?
19:54 Chirag_ Nothing else from me
19:54 Util OK, thanks!
19:54 Util Meeting adjourned.
