02:48 Topic for #perl6book is now master plan: https://gist.github.com/moritz/2930131695511e6b5ec63d90e4ce9e7b logs: https://irclog.perlgeek.de/perl6book/today mailing list signup: https://perl6book.com/
06:48 moritz good morning everybody
06:48 moritz I've pushed the first blog post with code examples and explanations
06:48 moritz feedback is very welcome
07:27 [ptc] moritz++
07:28 [ptc] moritz: is it ok if I replace the spaces in the image filenames with underscores?
07:28 [ptc] just me being an old terminal user and that :-)
07:32 moritz [ptc]: yes, that should be fine
07:32 moritz I'm also a tiny bit unhappy about $line being an index in the earlier examples, and an actual line in the later examples
07:33 moritz maybe I should change that to $line-number in the earlier examples?
07:33 [ptc] have only just pulled from the repo, I need to have a read through of everything first
07:33 [ptc] I'll give you feedback as soon as I can
07:34 moritz ok, no hurry
07:34 [ptc] am about to reach Bremen, so probably won't be able to it now :-)
07:34 * [ptc] is totally stoked Deutsche Bahn finally has free WiFi
07:35 moritz it has?
07:36 [ptc] yup.  Finally.
07:36 [ptc] they're rolling it out on all ICEs and are supposed to be finished with it by the end of the year
07:36 [ptc] I still find trains that don't have it yet, but when I do, it's gooooood :-)
07:36 moritz last I heard some ICE trains had experimental wifi for free, and then a few weeks ago when it came out of beta, they charged for it
07:37 [ptc] I had that too, did a bit of looking around and found it's supposed to stay free
07:37 [ptc] we'll see how we go.  Finger's crossed!
07:38 moritz \/X\
07:39 [ptc] had you thought of a DB example, maybe with DBIish?  Or is that starting to get a bit outside the realm of Perl6 by Example?
07:39 moritz [ptc]: I had, in fact
07:40 moritz [ptc]: recently for $work I wrote a small tool called silent-cron. It silences jobs that fail only occasionally, and keeps the state in an sqlite DB
07:40 moritz a p6 implementation of such a tool might be a nice exercise
07:40 [ptc] $silent-cron == /dev/null ;-)
07:41 [ptc] agreed, that'd be a good task, small, but shows the essentials
07:42 [ptc] bbiab &
07:42 moritz the point is that it doesn't swallow all errors, only the occasional one :-)

16:39 FROGGS joined #perl6book
17:05 [ptc] moritz: I love the way the sudoku example gets first longer, and then finally shorter, as more functionality is added!  That's very cool!
17:10 moritz [ptc]: I'm glad you like it
17:31 moritz fwiw I've checked in the examples as separate files, and expected output too, and I've written a very primitive test runner to check that the output is indeed correct
17:32 moritz the leanpub toolchain allows inclusion of code files, so whenever we want to use the full scripts, we can avoid duplication
17:45 moritz https://leanpub.com/perl6
19:59 DrForr Hopefully that's a namespace other books can fit in? :)
20:04 moritz no, not a namespace
20:04 moritz first come, first serve
20:04 moritz other books will have to have qualified names (perl6-oo, perl6-blabla)
20:05 DrForr Nod, didn't figure it was a big deal. Besides, just got back from vacation...
