18:36 colomon Last 7 days:
18:36 colomon * Packaged up Math::BigInt nicely
18:36 colomon * Started on Math::FatRat
18:36 colomon * Reported related bugs
18:36 colomon * Got TimToady++'s permission to add a gcd function to p6
18:36 colomon * Wondered a lot about simplifying rationals
18:36 colomon * Blogged repeatedly on these subjects
18:36 colomon Next 7 days:
18:36 colomon * Blog on the issues involved simplifying rationals
18:36 colomon * Try to research how Python handles BigInts
18:36 colomon * Try to research prior art on efficient rational implementations
18:37 takadonet just in time to see colomon post!
18:37 colomon * Actually get around to adding gcd to p6 and Rakudo.
18:37 colomon EOR
18:37 colomon afk # nap

18:53 * moritz_ will probably late for #phasers, due to lunch
18:53 moritz_ what I did
18:53 moritz_ * renamed some classes in the nqp/nom command line parser - not yet added to nqp
18:53 moritz_ * some tweaks to the IRC logs
18:54 moritz_ what I will do: sleep more :-)
18:54 moritz_ EOR
18:54 mberends moritz_: tonight you'll be late for lunch too ;-)
18:55 moritz_ erm, s/lunch/supper/ :-)
18:58 Util Pre-report:
18:58 Util Worked on speedup for tadzik
18:58 Util RosettaCode - Reduced Row Echelon Form - updating to fix bug spotted by thundergnat++
18:58 Util Will do:
18:58 Util Upload work-to-date to neutro fork
18:58 Util Create .dmg for this month's R* with partial solution.
18:58 Util EOR
19:01 TimToady is it over already? darn, that was quick...
19:01 * mberends was offline and has nothing to report :-(
19:03 Util mberends: "nothing" *is* a report. Info delivered and received. :)
19:03 pmichaud I did lots of discussions with Parrot folks regarding NQP and Rakudo needs from Parrot
19:03 pmichaud Fixed a couple of bugs, resolved RT tickets
19:03 pmichaud closed a lot of Trac tickets for Parrot
19:03 pmichaud created the new nqp repository
19:04 pmichaud posted announcements to pmthium.com
19:04 pmichaud discussed quantifier changes to regexes with TimToady
19:04 pmichaud eor, I think
19:05 TimToady I am recovering from India, yellow fever vaccine, forced server migration, and discussing quantifier changes with pmichaud :)
19:06 mberends ouch!
19:06 pmichaud (and we're preparing here for a likely *fifth* school snow-day closure)
19:07 mberends I'm very excited and motivated by jnthn++'s recent nqp and 6model work.
19:07 * TimToady to
19:07 TimToady o
19:10 mberends question: since I like to document things,what part of NQP or Rakudo guts is most in need of documentation?  Please don't say "everything". ;-)
19:10 pmichaud at this point I'd focus on NQP, I think.
19:10 pmichaud smaller pieces.
19:10 pmichaud documenting 6model (if it hasn't been done already) would be awesome
19:11 pmichaud even just coming up with a HACKING guide to tell people where/how to hack would be excellent
19:11 pmichaud I just updated nqp's readme about 10 minutes ago -- kid51++ pointed out that it was woefully wrong and out of date
19:12 mberends ok, thanks. 6model is a little bit documented, but I think the source repo would be a better place than the 6guts blog.
19:13 pmichaud easier to update there
19:13 pmichaud blogs are good for marking progress/updates, but we still want to have something in the source tree too :)
19:17 Util When working in NQP for the first time a few months ago, it seemed that every other thing I wanted to do, I had to search other NQP code to find an example. More/better docs would have been helpful.
19:18 pmichaud yes, we definitely need an intro to nqp
19:18 pmichaud I keep wanting to write one, but getting tuit-distracted elsewhere
19:19 PerlJam pmichaud: you even have a repo for an NQP book don't you?
19:19 pmichaud so, anything that might start to explain nqp itself in terms of examples would be helpful
19:19 pmichaud yes, there's a (largely empty) repo
19:19 PerlJam Now sounds like a good time to start writing it  :)
19:19 pmichaud agreed
19:21 TimToady are you planning for nqp to have real ltm any time soonish?  could probably borrow some ideas from sorear++
19:21 pmichaud yes
19:22 pmichaud I need to review sorear's code a bit, but it seems very likely
19:24 Util Would LTM in NQP mean that STD in Rakudo is on the horizon?
19:24 pmichaud it means rakudo will be even closer to STD, yes.
19:24 TimToady what's your alititude?
19:24 TimToady *altitude
19:25 pmichaud std itself has some cheats that need ironing out, too :)
19:25 Util I hover at 3-6 months when telling other about Rakudo.
19:26 TimToady in other words, your horizon is really on Mars or so :)
19:26 Util s/other/others/
19:27 Util :)
