10:16 sorear DONE:
10:16 sorear * STD on Niecza can now parse STD.pm6
10:16 sorear * Many miscellaneous minor optimizations - now at 48s to parse STD.pm6, compared to ~150s for the viv version
10:17 sorear * Announced on p6l, p6a.  Responce has been disappointing so far, but I hope it will improve after the p6a greylist clears
10:17 sorear EOR
10:18 sorear (signs you're tired: mistyping improve as iptables the first time)

18:50 Util No Perl 6 work this past week; none expected until I am done remodeling Parrot's pbc_to_exe.
18:50 Util EOR
19:01 diakopter howdy
19:02 moritz_ oh hai
19:02 jnthn oh hai
19:02 Util Hello
19:02 sorear hi
19:03 moritz_ sorear++ # niecza announcement
19:03 Util sorear++
19:03 moritz_ shall we start?
19:03 moritz_ diakopter: any report?
19:03 * Util must clear space for Mono
19:05 diakopter Mostly finished porting the core of nqp-rx's regex compiler from PIR-emitting PIR to DNST/C#-emitting NQP.
19:05 diakopter I expect it to be able to pass a decent chunk of nqp-rx's regex test suite in another couple of weeks.
19:05 diakopter .
19:05 moritz_ jnthn?
19:07 masak joined #phasers
19:07 masak o/
19:07 * sorear reported last nigh
19:08 jnthn Last week
19:08 jnthn * Another unproductive week for me - partly $dayjob distractions, muchly just due to feeling generically ill
19:08 jnthn * Implemented attribute auto-viv and added some tests for it
19:08 jnthn * Various little clean-ups inspired by diakopter++'s hacking
19:08 jnthn * Wrote some new LHF tasks
19:08 jnthn * Improved method not found errors to aid debugging
19:08 jnthn This week
19:08 jnthn (also currently fire-fighting somebody's database migration idiocy... *sigh*)
19:08 jnthn * I hope to do more. :-)
19:08 jnthn .EOR
19:08 jnthn (so a bit distracted...)
19:09 diakopter jnthn: before I forget, I ran into something - attribute auto-viv doesn't work (NRE) when attempted to be called from a method that's being called as a non-instance method.
19:09 * masak .eor
19:10 * moritz_ was also pretty unproductive
19:10 moritz_ I did much p5 hacking
19:10 moritz_ and plan to write a blog post about it (and some related p6 thoughts)
19:11 moritz_ EOR
19:11 moritz_ anybody else got a report?
19:11 colomon If by report, you mean, "Didn't do anything noteworthy, eor," sure.
19:12 moritz_ colomon: then feel free to paste your report :-)
19:12 colomon moritz_: already done.  ;)
19:12 moritz_ anything else we need to discuss?
19:13 colomon We're on target to restart the Advent calendar tomorrow, right?
19:13 moritz_ masak mentioned some talk about a testing synopsis
19:13 colomon testing synopsis +1
19:13 masak who's on first?
19:13 Util Is the advent calendar all planned out, or are some days still vacant?
19:13 masak I can draft a testing synopsis.
19:13 masak Util: some days are still vacant.
19:13 colomon tadzik, I think.
19:14 moritz_ tadzik goes first
19:14 masak lots of them, in fact.
19:14 diakopter what's on second
19:14 moritz_ Util: mu repo, misc/perl6advent-2010/schedule
19:14 moritz_ diakopter: me, with MAIN subs
19:14 masak diakopter: count on you to get my subtle references :)
19:14 diakopter I don't know is on third
19:15 masak :P
19:15 Util moritz_: thanks! I will add to it.
19:16 jnthn diakopter: Good. Trying to access attributes on type objects should die horribly.
19:16 moritz_ re testing and skip() and todo()
19:16 jnthn (though with a better error than NRE :))
19:16 moritz_ the problem is that both count and reason could be optional
19:17 moritz_ which argument should go first?
19:17 masak diakopter: did you submit a rakudobug?
19:18 diakopter fer what
19:18 masak moritz_: I think $count should go first, because skip(3) reads better than skip('we cannot do this yet for whatever reason')
19:18 diakopter masak: no cuz it's in npqclr
19:19 diakopter nqpclr
19:19 masak diakopter: oh!
19:19 masak nvm then
19:19 moritz_ masak: WFM
19:19 masak but I'm not strongly tied to that argument :)
19:20 masak it's just it's the only one I have so far.
19:21 diakopter pmichaud_: around?
19:23 masak rakudo: anon class C {}; say C.WHAT
19:24 diakopter heh
19:24 masak p6eval?
19:24 moritz_ this is not #perl6
19:25 masak shucks. :)
