08:38 Will_the_Chill bulk88: McFist says kmx is testing new 5.20-RC1 for strawberry, do we need any RPerl issues resolved for win32?
09:13 basiliscos joined #perl11
09:21 bulk88 4.8 series GCC, not 4.6
09:22 bulk88 I'd have to check my irc logs, or you can check them since #perl11 is publically logged
09:24 bulk88 AFAIK McFist in #win32 said today there is no strawberry 5.20 RC1 yet, and kmx said  "its comming", no actual dates (christmas 2014?)
09:24 rurban joined #perl11
09:24 bulk88 for 5.18 strawberry came out 2-4 months after 5.18 was released, a very "long" delay in software dev nowadays
09:26 bulk88 act6ually no, kmx released within a week or 2, its activestate that takes 2-4 months
10:26 rurban joined #perl11
11:28 rurban joined #perl11
11:54 McFist kmx did make a release for RC1 today, it is here: http://strawberryperl.com/beta/
11:58 bulk88 "With DEBUG enabled + gdb included + USE_64_BIT_INT enabled" 0_0
11:59 bulk88 finally!
11:59 bulk88 if you use a gdb that didn't come with that exact build of Mingw GCC, gdb will crash and hang
12:01 bulk88 trying to locate which mingw.org/w64 build package corresponds to Strawberry is impossible, apparntly Strawberry builds their own GCC, and the avg dev has no idea how to create it http://sourceforge.net/projects/perlmingw/
12:04 bulk88 the 5.20 beta package seems to have 4.8.2 in it, so that works for RPerl if my memory is correct

23:03 bulk88 someone got fed up with Inline::C and put (or is trying to) an ultra light weight C compiler written in C into the Perl process (not calling g++) https://github.com/run4flat/C-Blocks for JIT
23:06 bulk88 TinyCC's main design feature is its tiny (100KB library) and single pass, no lookbehind/look ahead, no peephole, each C statement (";") is compiled on its own into asm, then pasted onto the last string of asm
23:07 bulk88 kindda like Basic
