00:10 kurahaupo Zoffix: qualitatively yes, quantitatively no
00:11 kurahaupo faster is more actions per unit of time
00:12 Zoffix which is equivalent to one action per smaller unit of time ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
00:13 kurahaupo Zoffix: numerically no
00:13 kurahaupo that's why you got a negative answer initially
00:14 Zoffix I got a negative answer because I was too lazy to type abs() for relative difference formula :) [one of] which is abs(\$a-\$b)/max(abs(\$a), abs(\$b))
00:15 Zoffix m: my \$a  = 1 + 28.933/60; my \$b = 2 + 1.467/60; say "{abs(\$a-\$b)/max(abs(\$a), abs(\$b))*100}% faster"
00:15 camelia rakudo-moar e9019e: OUTPUT«26.7842295% faster␤»
00:15 kurahaupo no, you actually got the right answer -- the change in time was -26%
00:16 Zoffix After I rearranged the formula to not need abs/max, sure.
00:17 timotimo Zoffix: you may prefer infix:<max> over &max in this case
00:17 timotimo although it doesn't bind tighter than / does
00:17 timotimo so you'll need parens either way :\
00:20 kurahaupo Zoffix: if minutes-per-run decreases by 26% (less time), then runs-per-minute increases by 36% (faster)
00:21 kurahaupo Zoffix: leaving out the abs was not a mistake
00:22 Zoffix m: my \$x  = 1 + 28.933/60; my \$y = 2 + 1.467/60; my \Δ = \$x - \$y; say "{Δ/\$y*100}% faster"
00:22 camelia rakudo-moar e9019e: OUTPUT«-26.7842295% faster␤»
00:22 Zoffix kurahaupo, I give you "if minutes-per-run decreases by 26% (less time), then runs-per-minute increases by 36% (more runs)"
00:22 kurahaupo Zoffix: s/faster/more time/
00:23 Zoffix But "faster" is an ambiguous word here
00:23 Zoffix https://xkcd.com/309/
00:23 * Zoffix leaves to play Far Cry 4
00:23 timotimo have fun!

02:15 AlexDaniel Zoffix: it feels like we need shotgun: instead of bisect: :)
02:16 AlexDaniel you can't really use bisect if something was broken/fixed several times
02:16 AlexDaniel so why bother with bisection when you can simply run something on every commit…
02:18 AlexDaniel let's see
02:18 AlexDaniel bisect: class Foo { method new { self.bless: *, :foo<bar> } }.new
02:18 bisectable AlexDaniel: (2016-06-12) https://github.com/rakudo/rakudo/commit/4179bdc
02:19 AlexDaniel bisect: good=2016.01.1 class Foo { method new { self.bless: *, :foo<bar> } }.new
02:19 bisectable AlexDaniel: no build for such “good” revision
02:19 AlexDaniel um, fine
02:19 AlexDaniel bisect: good=2016.02 class Foo { method new { self.bless: *, :foo<bar> } }.new
02:19 bisectable AlexDaniel: (2016-06-12) https://github.com/rakudo/rakudo/commit/4179bdc
02:20 AlexDaniel bisect: good=2d9202c class Foo { method new { self.bless: *, :foo<bar> } }.new
02:20 bisectable AlexDaniel: no build for such “good” revision
02:20 Zoffix That was just a measurement error. It wasn't actually broken in 2016.01
02:21 AlexDaniel ah, okay
02:22 AlexDaniel there's still a problem though
02:22 AlexDaniel bisect: use REPL; say 1
02:22 bisectable AlexDaniel: exit code is 1 on both starting points, bisecting by using the output
02:22 bisectable AlexDaniel: (2015-12-25) https://github.com/rakudo/rakudo/commit/07fecb5
02:22 AlexDaniel why!
02:22 Zoffix m: use REPL
02:22 camelia rakudo-moar e9019e: OUTPUT«===SORRY!===␤REPL is a builtin type. You can use it without loading a module.␤»
02:27 Sgeo joined #perl6
02:30 AlexDaniel .tell psch so the reason why it points to 2015-12-25 is because it says “Could not find REPL in:” and then it prints paths…
02:30 yoleaux AlexDaniel: I'll pass your message to psch.
02:34 AlexDaniel omg SVG favicons are only supported in firefox
02:42 AlexDaniel bisect: EVAL “use REPL” if 1; CATCH { exit 0 if \$_ ~~ /builtin/; exit 1 }
02:42 bisectable AlexDaniel: exit code on a “good” revision is 1 (which is bad), bisecting with inverted logic
02:42 bisectable AlexDaniel: (2016-03-24) https://github.com/rakudo/rakudo/commit/f7d1c4b
02:42 aindilis joined #perl6
02:42 AlexDaniel .tell psch You probably wanted something like this: bisect: EVAL “use REPL” if 1; CATCH { exit 1 if \$_ ~~ /builtin/; exit 0 }
02:42 yoleaux AlexDaniel: I'll pass your message to psch.
02:42 AlexDaniel oops, if 1 :D

07:44 AlexDaniel ok
07:48 moritz nice!

07:57 rindolf joined #perl6
08:04 gfldex joined #perl6
08:14 g4 joined #perl6
08:24 Woodi so, in my baby-perl6 "benchmark" R*2016.04 was 24.25, R2016.05 was 23.25, same for R2016.06 and R2016.07.01 is 21.25  where 1 is some Perl5 script (a bit deoptimized with HOP...)
08:24 moritz so, the trend is good
08:25 Woodi yes, but we got long spring to recover after xmass :)
08:27 AlexDaniel in other words, 21 months to go? :)
08:29 Woodi now possibly it would be nice to look for holes/niches in "production environments"... maybe something like generating C code. or somethingsomething virtualization ? :)
08:29 Woodi AlexDaniel: you are so optimistic :)
08:30 AlexDaniel Woodi: not really, just a bit linear :)
08:30 * moritz wonders why this "compiling to C" meme never dies
08:30 Woodi moritz: becouse it's close to CPU and we have kind of CPU that we have :)\
08:31 AlexDaniel Woodi: in fact, it is 22 months till global catastrophe due to artificial intelligence
08:31 Woodi AlexDaniel: 2012 was worse perspective :)
08:33 Woodi do we Still faster then Moose ? what about comparing to other Moo'ses ?
08:34 AlexDaniel https://docs.perl6.org/language/faq#Is_Perl_6_fast_enough_for_me%3F
08:34 AlexDaniel no idea
08:34 AlexDaniel I guess that we have to run these snippets to find out :D
08:49 vendethiel joined #perl6
08:50 moritz Woodi: still, it's a fallacy. MoarVM is also written in C, so we already get the speed that C can give us
08:53 RabidGravy joined #perl6
08:54 ShimmerFairy moritz: actually, I'd argue ultimately compiling to your CPU's native assembler is better than that of a VM built on top of your CPU :P
08:55 Woodi moritz: but PMCs are not native types...
08:59 moritz ShimmerFairy: but the need for the VM features doesn't go away by compiling Perl 6 to C
08:59 moritz you still need garbage collecition, multi dispatch, named arguments and all that stuff
08:59 Woodi AlexDaniel: Mojo 2.96s; Moose 9.68; Perl6 17,36s; Moose (mutable classes) 142,92s
09:00 ShimmerFairy moritz: that feels like an overly-literal approach to what's basically source translation; you wouldn't need e.g. named arguments if my P6 script never uses them.
09:04 neuron joined #perl6
09:05 Woodi moritz: my use case is: some portal using 100 (sorry, late 90s numbers ;) ) Intel servers doing PHP apps like postcards.portal.com/news/sport/music/.... and no money to buy more servers; moust apps are same PHP code with different content. I think that if that apps will be in C it would be like 50 unused servers...
09:06 sno joined #perl6
09:07 Woodi ...so HLL is good for prototyping but when it is working it needs to be rewrited into something generating native code...
09:07 jkramer joined #perl6
09:07 jkramer Ahoy
09:07 Woodi eg. sysV init scripts was too long a "scripts" ;)
09:07 Woodi hi jkramer :)
09:08 jkramer I'm not sure if I'm doing something wrong or if I might have found a bug. I have this line: my %short-flags <== map { \$_.short => \$_ } <== grep { \$_.short } <== @!options;
09:08 jkramer It works fine, but if I put linebreaks in front of the <=='s, I get a syntax error
09:08 jkramer About a missing '>'
09:09 bjz joined #perl6
09:09 pmurias joined #perl6
09:10 pmurias re compiling to C, why would be that better than what MoarVM is currently doing and compiling to machine code?
09:12 ShimmerFairy pmurias: the only big plus that comes to my mind is "way more portable source" (as in, someone's far more likely to have a spare gcc on hand than a spare rakudo)
09:13 ShimmerFairy pmurias: but yeah, making it somehow possible to do mbc->asm would be of comparable usefulness.

09:16 jkramer gfldex: Ok, thanks
09:18 pmurias ShimmerFairy: the runtime is needed, so we would need to bundle up a rakudo
09:19 Actualeyes joined #perl6
09:19 ShimmerFairy pmurias: for what, the C idea? Not for a sufficiently clever translator :P
09:21 abraxxa joined #perl6
09:26 pmurias If you get someone to rewrite in program in C it likely won't need the Rakudo runtime
09:28 ShimmerFairy Well sure, humans usually count as sufficiently clever translators :)
09:28 pmurias only ones I can imagine
09:28 ShimmerFairy pmurias: I think at minimum it should dynamically link what it wants (e.g. libmoar.so). Bundling a static library into it, or otherwise forcing someone to cart around the runtime with the program, would be quite LTA.
09:31 pmurias ShimmerFairy: isn't carting around everything that's needed what people want when they package around things as an executable for linux?
09:32 ShimmerFairy pmurias: not really. Windows, yeah, but on Linux the magic is that you _don't_ have to package up all the libraries you need :)
09:36 Woodi pmurias: just tested: strace nqpSayA  401 syscals; strace cSayA 28...
09:37 pmurias Woodi: ?
09:38 Woodi pmurias: so execution time is 20+ times shorter...

09:38 Woodi ok, 14 :)
09:39 ShimmerFairy moritz: I've personally never run into a situation where that's genuinely helpful. .so's are just too nice :)
09:39 pmurias Woodi: we are not at hand written performance yet
09:40 Woodi pmurias: but it's not about us, just how things generally are...
09:40 Woodi and of coursse making C code is harder then HLL but it's why HLL is for ptototyping and then "evaluating" :)
09:41 pmurias Woodi: there is nothing forcing things to be that way
09:43 jjido_ joined #perl6
09:44 pmurias Woodi: if I wanted to waste the time I could make NQP emit hand written quality C code for hello world programs

10:01 jkramer Another question: why does this work: my @foo = grep { ... }, @stuff; my \$bar = @foo.first; But not: my \$bar = first grep { ... }, @stuff ?
10:02 tbrowder morning #perl6
10:02 jkramer Oh nevermind, I get it. When called as a sub the first argument is a matcher.
10:02 jkramer Ha, that's genious actually, saves me a grep :)
10:03 tbrowder what's the policy on leaving debug code in source for at least a while?
10:14 gregf_ jkramer: grep is a global function, whereas first is a method
10:15 gregf_ m: say ([1..10].grep: { \$_ %% 3 }).first

10:15 vendethiel joined #perl6
10:16 gregf_ well, there i guess, grep is a method call :| #confusing
10:17 ShimmerFairy lots of things are provided in both sub and method form for convenience and preferred programming style.
10:20 pmurias tbrowder: you mean leaving in commented out debugging comment in rakudo source code?
10:20 tbrowder yes
10:20 psch tbrowder: if it's generally useful and meaningful and hidden behind an env var, i'd say go ahead
10:20 yoleaux 02:30Z <AlexDaniel> psch: so the reason why it points to 2015-12-25 is because it says “Could not find REPL in:” and then it prints paths…
10:20 yoleaux 02:42Z <AlexDaniel> psch: You probably wanted something like this: bisect: EVAL “use REPL” if 1; CATCH { exit 1 if \$_ ~~ /builtin/; exit 0 }

10:23 tbrowder pmurias: okay, thanks, i don't want to abuse it but i'm preparing a PR that might need some retries before being accepted and might need more debugging
10:24 timotimo i've probably done it differently in the past, but it's favorable to not leave debug output around for bisectability and such. though it's probably no big deal
10:25 psch right, the big thing is that you have to work for it to come out
10:25 psch like, we have RAKUDO_MODULE_DEBUG around for what, a year?
10:25 psch but that's fine, cause without the env var it doesn't get in the way
10:25 timotimo ah, well, if you put it behind an env var, that's probably fine
10:25 timotimo i wonder if the checks for rakudo module debug are optimized at all, or if they are a performance drain

10:25 dalek doc: review: https://github.com/perl6/doc/commit/628efba759
10:25 psch that's an interesting question, yeah
10:26 psch iirc \$RMD is lexical everywhere its used..?
10:28 timotimo i haven't looked at all
10:28 timotimo just a random thought that came to my mind
10:29 timotimo like how if you have a benchmark with a while loop that compares an int against @*ARGS[0], it'll be a million times slower than if you .Int it once and put it into a variable, or even into a native variable
10:30 psch 41 lines with \$RMD
10:30 psch well, two are from CUR::Perl5
10:30 psch the rest is PrecompRepo, World, RepoRegistry, in descent amount
10:31 timotimo descent was a great game
10:31 psch +ing
10:31 psch :|
10:31 psch well, descending /o\

10:35 nine I'm quite sure that \$RMD costs some performance and I'm very much looking forward to a time when we can remove it. Will also make the code nicer.
10:35 timotimo yay
10:36 timotimo *sigh*, the thing about my virtual desktop setup is that i don't have enough virtual desktops right next to my irc/browser/jabber desktop :P
10:37 DrForr Enlightenment splits desktops per display, default of 4 each.
10:38 psch well, the naive benchmark i whipped up here is actually half a second slower without \$RMD :S
10:38 timotimo i want both my displays to switch at the same time
10:38 timotimo haha, that's great :D
10:39 psch ah shucks, now i tossed a change i had been working on :|
10:39 psch well, not too bad
10:40 psch #127924 that is
10:40 nine tossed?
10:40 psch yeah, checkout .
10:41 psch 'cause i wanted to get rid of the comment-out-\$RMD changes but forgot there was other changes around
10:41 psch no big deal though, it didn't really work yet anyway and i still recall what i did do :)
10:41 timotimo oof
10:41 timotimo do you know of git checkout -p ?
10:41 psch yeah
10:42 psch i might eventually learn to always do confirm-y stuff, but apparently not yet :)
10:44 timotimo i suppose you have to get hurt often enough in order to really build that habit :\
10:45 psch anyway, the thing with the ticket above is, that if &return inside an 'is rw' Routine is what we have &return-rw for now, (1) is return-rw still allowed in a not-'is rw' Routine? (2) do we actually still need &return-rw if not (1)?

11:01 jkramer Is there some syntax sugar to avoid having to type long namespaces/class/enum paths too often? Something like this would help: enum Foo <A B>; Need::These::Values::{A,B}

11:36 sjn ok, so I have a hash, I'd like the pairs of them to end up in two variable I've named, and I'd like to have it done in a sorted way, so I can iterate over it
11:37 sjn lizmat: has the way :)
11:37 lizmat sort generates Pair, Pairs attributes are "key" and "value"
11:37 lizmat hence you *must* use :key / :value
11:37 timotimo i'd describe it as "sort uses .List, which on a hash gives you a list of Pair objects"
11:38 lizmat :\$key is just short for :key(\$key)
11:38 sjn ok
11:39 sjn and you have to use the paranthesis around those, because we're "unpacking" the Pairs?
11:39 lizmat that's my understanding, yes
11:39 lizmat it's basically a signature
11:39 timotimo aye, the thing after -> is a signature
11:39 timotimo right
11:39 timotimo if you have :\$key, :\$value, you expect two named arguments
11:40 timotimo when you have (:\$key, :\$value), you expect a single argument
11:40 timotimo and that gets unpacked
11:40 sjn right
11:40 sjn a signature
11:40 sjn sjn's brain is going all bendy from this
11:41 gfldex https://docs.perl6.org/type/Signature#Destructuring_Parameters <-- we even got tha doced!

12:17 timotimo ^- running a regex on a string is one of the operations that forces a rope to collapse into a contiguous piece of memory

12:21 lizmat timotimo: is there a way to programmatically force a rope collapse ?

16:41 [Coke] danke. was trying to suss it out from way too little info (the .gitignore). :)
16:45 timotimo .o( it's developed by Dr Suass )
16:46 Zoffix The .gitignore stuff are files generated by the Mojolicious::Plugin::AssetPack plugin that converts SASS. It's basically a cache, so it doesn't have to convert them each time the app is started (if there weren't any changes) and those files are not needed in the repo.

16:56 AlexDaniel nebg: about a year ago I had to deal with UML and found nothing
16:56 AlexDaniel well, there was something, but it was very buggy and was crashing every five minutes
16:56 timotimo there's potentially a web app that's better than every single desktop app out there :P
16:57 nebg timotimo, ok tell me
16:57 AlexDaniel … which is a good indication of how popular UML is…
16:57 timotimo i have no idea. it was just a guess
16:57 nebg timotimo, are you a professor ?
16:57 timotimo i am not
16:58 timotimo i'm just as unhelpful as one
16:58 AlexDaniel I think that I ended up drawing something in https://www.draw.io/ … which is not primarily an UML thing, but believe me it works better than other UML software
16:58 AlexDaniel the drawback is that it is not free software
17:00 AlexDaniel … but at least you don't have to install proprietary crap on your computer, which is what UML is about…

17:44 kyclark I have a list of files that should all have the same number of lines.  I'd like to read one line from each file until I've exhausted all of them.  Is that a Supply or a Channel?  What's the most elegant Perl 6 way to do this?
17:46 domidumont joined #perl6
17:46 timotimo well, .lines() on the .IO gives you a lazy Seq, you should be able to turn that into either a Channel or a Supply with .Channel and .Supply
17:46 timotimo but it's not really async I/O that way
17:47 timotimo but for supplies there's a zip combinator
17:47 AlexDaniel why does it have to be a channel or a supply?
17:47 timotimo really, i'd just [Z] @filenames>>.IO>>.lines
17:48 timotimo that doesn't actually run the stuff in parallel, but your bottleneck is probably I/O here, so there's not terribly much to win
17:52 ribasushi joined #perl6
17:53 kyclark It doesn't have to be a Supply, but I'm exploring here and was wondering if that is an appropriate solution.  The zipper is cool.  Just checking, to loop this idea, I'd basically do "for [Z] @files>>.IO>>.lines -> @values {}"?
17:53 timotimo aye
17:54 kyclark What's bad ass is that I can guess at about half of this and get it right.  Also, cool that I can -> \$values and it works, too.
17:55 timotimo right, having a \$ vs an @ in a signature only makes a difference if you have an @foo and you don't get passed something Positional

23:25 timotimo it's a pun :)
23:26 psch well, a cursory glance says the !=1 issue is somewhere in EXPR
23:26 psch which probably explains why it's been around so long :P
23:26 AlexDaniel https://docs.perl6.org/language/glossary#iffy meh
23:27 * psch goes back to not-programming for now
23:27 psch that probably means sleep soon o/

23:35 timotimo the != 1 issue?
23:35 freezerburnv joined #perl6
23:36 psch AlexDaniel: i probably wouldn't remember if i did any of that... :)
23:36 psch timotimo: not the != 1 issue, the !=1 issue :S
23:36 psch m: say 1 !=1
23:36 camelia rakudo-moar ff8362: OUTPUT«Cannot modify an immutable Int␤  in block <unit> at <tmp> line 1␤␤»
23:36 psch m: say 1 != 1
23:36 camelia rakudo-moar ff8362: OUTPUT«False␤»
23:36 psch timotimo: that ^^^
23:37 psch timotimo: as mentioned, i'm pretty sure it's something in EXPR makes us misparse the latter as meta op ! to infix:<=>
23:37 psch +that
23:39 timotimo oh, huh
23:39 psch it's ticketed for like 3 years or so i think...
23:39 psch but it's also deep in the guts that no one wants to touch, soooo... :)
23:39 timotimo wow
23:39 timotimo yeah :D

23:42 timotimo hah
23:42 psch this does *not* mean i have to fix it :P
23:43 psch i honestly just get more scared that STD already did that wrong
23:43 psch 'cause i'm pretty sure the STD author is a better programmer than me :S
23:46 timotimo :)

23:56 geekosaur "better programmer" does not mean "infallible". it might not even mean "more infallible"
