13:38 ToApolytoXaos willthechill: greetings mate. on your video, you mention about implementing Perl ops; can you point at me the link that shows the number of Perl ops that you need to implement for RPerl?

22:26 willthechill ToApolytoXaos:  http://perldoc.perl.org/perlop.html  and  http://perldoc.perl.org/index-functions.html
22:26 ToApolytoXaos thanks willthechill
22:27 willthechill you're welcome!  :)
22:27 willthechill many of the builtin ops and functions have multiple variations, such as accepting different types of arguments or different numbers of arguments
22:28 willthechill we will start out by choosing the 1 or 2 lowest-magic variations of each builtin
22:30 willthechill see the top of this file for an example of the variations supported:  https://github.com/wbraswell/rperl/blob/master/lib/RPerl/Operation/Expression/Operator/Named/Sort.pm
22:43 ToApolytoXaos okay
22:52 ToApolytoXaos so, in other words, RPerl will be a traditional Perl interpret plus a compiler mechanism?
22:53 ToApolytoXaos that's why we need to fully implement all necessary ops, so we may be able to generate the appropriate output?
22:53 willthechill RPerl will compile a "low-magic subset of Perl 5"
22:53 willthechill we will do our best to implement as many of Perl 5's builtin operators and functions as possible
22:53 ToApolytoXaos awesome
22:54 ToApolytoXaos i'm a bit sad though with the time difference we have between us and i get really exhausted easily after a certain time :/
22:54 willthechill gotta go, meeting time, be back in about 2 hours
22:54 ToApolytoXaos here it's 01:55
22:55 ToApolytoXaos see you tomorrow mate
22:55 ToApolytoXaos it's time for me to get some sleep
22:55 willthechill okay goodnight to you!
22:55 willthechill :)
22:55 ToApolytoXaos goodnight :)
