02:24 dalek rakudo/ng: Turn unshift test on.
02:24 dalek rakudo/ng: review: http://github.com/rakudo/rakudo/commit/7​daa82df059cf6eaf07a124fbcfa00fae6e272c2
02:24 colomon pmichaud: possibly a dumb question; how do we test iterators?
02:25 colomon something like my $a = (1..10).iterator; is $a.get, 1; is $a.get, 2; etc ?
02:26 colomon BTW, perl 6 world, ng now has over 3000 tests turned on again.  :)
02:34 eternaleye \o/
02:35 colomon I reckon we need to turn on about 2000 a day on average for the next week.  :)
02:35 colomon but we'll get a ton when we get trig back.

03:45 LaVolta colomon, so we must use the braces form to get it interpolated, right?
03:45 colomon That's my understanding.
03:47 LaVolta thanks :)

04:09 eternaleye colomon: LaVolta: Actaully, "@array[]" is supposed to interpolate - it's just NYI. It is, however, true that "@array" does not interpolate.
04:13 jaldhar joined #perl6
04:18 LaVolta i just found these lines in RFC 105: [Update: The interpolation rules for arrays have been completely revised. A bare array name no longer interpolates--you have to say @foo[].]
04:19 LaVolta eternaleye, you mean it will be implemented in future?
04:24 lumi joined #perl6
04:27 TimToady LaVolta: yes; the current workaround is {@array}
04:39 LaVolta TimToady, got it, thanks...

08:52 Su-Shee good morning
08:54 sjohnson hi
08:54 sjohnson Su-Shee: where abouts in the world are you?
08:54 sjohnson London?
08:54 Su-Shee berlin, germany.
08:55 Su-Shee jikes. no, obviously siberia. ;) *shiver*
08:56 lumi joined #perl6
08:56 sjohnson Su-Shee: is German your first language?
08:56 Su-Shee yes.
08:57 sjohnson you speak English quite well... i want to learn German one day, but am afraid it is difficult to learn
08:58 Su-Shee it depends on what you already know. if you by any chance know latin for example or russian, german will be just another one of those kind of languages.. if you know only english, you will hate it from time to time. ;)
09:00 sjohnson i can speak french fluently
09:00 sjohnson and a tiny bit of Japanese
09:01 Su-Shee sjohnson: then go ahead. if you already went through french verbs, german ones aren't that bad. ;)
09:02 sjohnson zer gut, zer gut!
09:03 Su-Shee sjohnson: we do have massive inflection on the nouns as well though. german is just at the beginning to a "de/a" system.

09:54 Achilles333 hello everyone
09:55 Achilles333 Can anyone suggest what is the good way to start learning perl6?

10:08 xinming Achilles333: Synopis will tell you what perl 6 will be like. with detailed examples.

16:12 colomon wow, quiet morning
16:17 * jnthn has visitor, so has been entertaining today.
16:27 colomon we're still recovering from yesterday here.
16:27 jnthn :-)
16:27 colomon and prepping for my parents to arrive in 3.5 hours.
16:28 jnthn ooh, I needs a Parrot update...
16:28 * jnthn --gen-parrots
16:29 colomon yay --gen-parrot
16:31 colomon I could tell nobody has been actually hacking on ng this weekend, because I broke the build for about 12 hours yesterday and no one noticed
16:31 colomon (lots of designing going on, of course)
16:34 jnthn hehe
16:34 pmichaud I'm about to do list/iterator refactor in a new branch
16:34 pmichaud (temporary branch)
16:35 jnthn So we're brancing the branch? :-)
16:35 pmichaud yes
16:35 jnthn ;-)
16:35 pmichaud depending on how it goes, should be only for a day
16:35 jnthn ok, wfm
16:35 pmichaud but (as always)  list/array refactors tend to break everything
16:35 jnthn May as well, git makes them a cheap resource. :-)
16:35 pmichaud and it's too big a job to do without some commits/pushes
16:35 jnthn Sure, it's nice to be able to commit bit by bit.
16:36 colomon yay!
16:36 jnthn I might be able to sneak a patch in now before dinner to sort one of my todos. :-)
16:38 colomon I'm off to dim sum Sunday lunch, but look forward to seeing branch....
16:39 jnthn .oO( nearly time for me to brighten some Sunday dinner )
16:44 lumi joined #perl6
16:49 jnthn aww. that closure clone thingy doesn't help.
16:50 jnthn I mean, it makes the code neater, but doesn't actually fix the problem.

23:36 * colomon just realized that if pmichaud has branched ng, it won't show up in dalek...
23:49 lichtkind gnight
23:53 japhb I'm thinking about writing an NQP and possibly a full Perl 6 implementation of the MiniSat algorithm for finding SAT (Boolean Satisfiability) solutions.  The question is, what should it be called?  Has the Perl 6 ecosystem gotten to the point of having conventions for naming such a beast?
