19:44 ToApolytoXaos hey willthechill. i had to leave last night because here it was late already and i could not keep my eyes open.
19:45 ToApolytoXaos also, i won't be able to help with RPerl for the moment, because we are facing a serious problem at work with possible layoffs and i'm one of the candidates
19:45 ToApolytoXaos so, i can't keep my focus in one place i'm afraid :(
19:51 willthechill oh dang!
19:51 willthechill sorry to hear that
20:03 ToApolytoXaos don't be; i honestly can't wait to get the heck out of there
20:03 ToApolytoXaos it's a madness
20:04 ToApolytoXaos by the way, i have tried to "decipher" the code and was a bit of a mess to me lol
20:07 willthechill ah okay well let me know once you're ready to start work on RPerl and I will guide you
20:13 ToApolytoXaos i got worried a bit about not touching the code :(
20:13 travis-ci RPerl build passed. Will Braswell says 'Generator, Perl Ops Perl Types, Includes & Section Labels'
20:13 travis-ci http://travis-ci.org/wbraswell/rperl/builds/61806004 https://github.com/wbraswell/rperl/compare/a225b2badd88...33154b2b0210
20:14 willthechill can you please clarify what you mean?
20:14 ToApolytoXaos when i ask yesterday about beautifying the code..?
20:14 ToApolytoXaos and you said no?
20:15 ToApolytoXaos for some reason my eyes can't read more than 80 columns
20:15 ToApolytoXaos it breaks my focus
20:15 ToApolytoXaos that's why i tend to restrict my code up to 72 columns the most, with extremely minor exceptions
20:16 willthechill I said you can download a copy of the code and beautify it all you like, as long as you don't try to push your changes to github
20:16 willthechill those debug lines are all on one long line for a very good reason
20:16 willthechill because they are used for debugging!
20:17 willthechill and it may break the code and/or mess up something in general to run automatic beautifying tools on this code
20:17 willthechill because, again, this is not just normal C++ code
20:17 ToApolytoXaos bummer...
20:17 willthechill this is C++ plus Inline::CPP plus Perl 5 core types plus macro, etc...
20:18 willthechill so, please feel free to reformat your own local copy all you like
20:18 willthechill just don't try to push it upstream on git
20:18 willthechill that is the wonderful thing about open source software
20:18 willthechill you can work on your own copy without messing up the main copy
20:20 ToApolytoXaos ok
20:20 ToApolytoXaos i hope we don't end up like node.js / io.js lol
20:22 willthechill what do you mean?
20:23 ToApolytoXaos it's a joke, a hypothesis let's say that my fork would go further than RPerl's original goals and this way would prevent future merging
20:25 willthechill oh wow good luck with that!  haha
20:25 ToApolytoXaos as i said, it's a joke!
20:25 willthechill yes clearly!
20:25 ToApolytoXaos but you never know ;)
20:26 ToApolytoXaos maybe one day i would flip my mind and say "challenge accepted"
20:26 willthechill yeah I give you less than 1% chance of success, sorry
20:26 willthechill much less
20:26 ToApolytoXaos brilliant
20:26 willthechill haha!
20:26 ToApolytoXaos i guess i could go back and work on my LaTeX emulator
20:27 willthechill well that sounds interesting I guess, if you like latex
20:27 willthechill I prefer Perl
20:27 ToApolytoXaos it was a final year project of a friend of mine for his master's and did it for fun
20:29 ToApolytoXaos anyway, time to finish with something and i will continue with my Perl studies tomorrow at work until we get further news about what is going to happen.
20:30 willthechill okay great!
20:30 ToApolytoXaos cheers mate
20:32 willthechill later

20:49 Bender OK, bulk88
