00:01 sivoais yes! (it's only 18:00 here)
00:01 mohawk fantastic
00:01 mohawk i have a weird XS problem
00:02 mohawk i am updating gimp-perl, which uses PDL
00:02 mohawk from XS
00:02 mohawk i assume you know the bit of code in PDL::API that starts 'perl_require_pv ("PDL::Core");'?
00:03 mohawk basically, i have a *.t file that does 'print "$PDL::SHARE"' which gives a plausible looking value
00:03 mohawk but the XS code which does this: 'CoreSV = perl_get_sv("PDL::SHARE", FALSE);' returns false
00:03 mohawk i need ideas on what is going wrong?
00:05 sivoais mmm, I'm not an XS + PDL expert :-/
00:05 mohawk dohhh
00:06 mohawk it seems to be an XS problem
00:06 sivoais well, there is an #xs channel!
00:06 mohawk and it's crazy because it looks like it really ought to work
00:06 mohawk no-one awake there
00:07 mohawk as you can imagine i am nearly melting google looking for ideas
00:14 sivoais mohawk: have a link to the gimp-perl dist? I want to try it out
00:14 mohawk grin
00:15 mohawk you can get the latest from git, but there are some further patches
00:15 mohawk look on cpan, you'll see a link to the git location (module Gimp)
00:15 sivoais ah, this <https://git.gnome.org/browse/gimp-perl/>
00:15 mohawk that's the one
00:16 mohawk there are a couple further patches not in that yet, on https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=725475 and https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=725487
00:16 mohawk the code was dormant for a few years and i'm fixing it now
00:17 mohawk and today i waded into the surprisingly treacherous PDL-using part of the code
00:24 mohawk can you think of anyone who could assist me with this XS problem?
00:26 sivoais mohawk: another place you could go is #p5p or e-mail the xs mailing list
00:26 mohawk awesome, thanks
00:26 mohawk if you have any questions about gimp-perl, feel free to ask ;)
01:21 jberger__ joined #pdl
02:24 mohawk turns out the problem was because gimp-perl uses client-server, and the server-side was failing to load PDL because PDL::API is badly wrong
09:04 preaction left #pdl

18:52 rindolf Hi all.
18:59 sivoais hello o/
18:59 rindolf sivoais: hi, what's up?
19:01 sivoais not much. stayed at home today since there is a winter storm in *Texas*. :-)
19:06 rindolf sivoais: ah, I see.
19:06 rindolf sivoais: hope it will subside soon.
19:08 sivoais the air mass itself has passed by, but I want to avoid bad road conditions
