15:43 sorear Prereport:
15:43 sorear DID:
15:44 sorear * set out a design for an internal debugger API (like DB:: stuff), to be done this month if tuits allow
15:45 sorear * went back and forth with TimToady to figure out the best handling of cross-platform line endings
15:46 sorear * asked the P5 unicode maintainer about how best to go about doing \p{Whatever} in P6.  Reply in a nutshell: "Use the XML UCD"
15:46 sorear * helped diakopter to get 6model/lua into a mostly working configuration
15:48 sorear * fixed a few random niecza bugs, including thunky xx
15:48 sorear * updated some of niecza's internals documentation
15:48 sorear WILL DO:
15:48 sorear * not much, severe tuit drought expected
15:49 sorear * priorities: finish and implement debug interface, regex improvements including general Unicode character classes and an imitation of :graphs, native types, 6model convergence/implement roles
15:49 sorear EOR
15:51 sorear may even miss #phasers
16:55 colomon joined #phasers
17:02 colomon Pre-report:
17:02 colomon * Got TagLib# working with NIecza.
17:03 colomon * Wrote scripts to look for missing tags, and fix tags which can be deduced from the MP3 file's path.
17:03 colomon * https://github.com/colomon/TagTools
17:03 colomon * Blogged on this.
17:04 colomon Plans:
17:06 colomon * p6 work likely to be scanty for the next week due to real life suckiness.
17:07 colomon EOR
17:13 pmichaud my report:  Medical issues dominated this past week, so still running short of p6 tuits.
17:13 pmichaud EOR
17:20 colomon pmichaud++
17:30 jnthn Preport...
17:30 jnthn In the last week...
17:30 jnthn * Went to Twin City Perl Workshop and gave a couple of talks, including a new one on optimization stuff
17:30 jnthn * Used various bits of travel time to do optimizer design work
17:30 jnthn * Did a couple more optimizer implementation bits, but nothing major
17:30 jnthn * Eliminated need for nqp::want usage in native ops
17:30 jnthn * More work on bigint; optimistic we can have it merged before the next release
17:30 jnthn * Helped diakopter++ a bit with nqplua
17:30 jnthn In the coming week...
17:30 jnthn * Will go to London Perl Workshop and give talks there
17:30 jnthn * More bigint stuff
17:30 jnthn * Perhaps more optimizer stuff
17:30 jnthn * Figure out where I want to go with NCI things
17:30 jnthn RFC
17:30 jnthn * I'm pondering moving PAST over to 6model, and dragging it into the NQP repo as part of that. I know we intend to eventually replace it with QAST but... - I really want the memory improvements, like, yesterday - It's blocking getting nqpclr and nqplua transitioned over to new nqp; they still use parrot-nqp So unless anybody has any good reasons why not, I plan to JFDI.
17:30 jnthn EOR
17:31 jnthn o/
17:31 tadzik \o
17:31 moritz \o
17:31 moritz my report:
17:31 moritz did a bit of C hacking on the bigint stuff
17:32 moritz tried to do more exceptions stuff; blocks on not being able to stub joint-namespaced names in the setting
17:32 moritz need to produce a minimal example and hand to jnthn++ for fixing
17:32 moritz EOR
17:33 tadzik did: splice(), attempt at META.info parser, failing due to regex bugs. Friendly pair of eyes welcome to look at https://gist.github.com/1344631 eor
17:33 japhb joined #phasers
17:35 jnthn tadzik: Where does it fail?
17:35 jnthn tadzik: Should some of those token be rule?
17:35 japhb Did: Faster Str.trim*()    Working on: Str.Numeric() rewrite.  EOR
17:35 jnthn tadzik: As it stands, that grammar won't allow whitespace *anywhere*.
17:38 moritz fwiw I've started a 'nom' branch of JSON::Tiny
17:38 japhb moritz++
17:38 moritz it currently fails in the actions because the ~ parser generator currently surpresses captures
17:39 moritz ie '(' ~ ')' <pairlist>   makes <pairlist> not capture
17:39 jnthn moritz: Did you file a ticket for that one?
17:39 moritz not yet, I think
17:39 tadzik jnthn: that's fine, I'm not testing it on anything contatining whitespace
17:39 tadzik jnthn: fails in #46, $<pair> is nil
17:42 tadzik moritz: oh, that's similar to my bug
17:42 tadzik moritz: in my case <foo> ** ',' supresses captures too
17:43 jnthn Suggest filing ticket(s) and assign to pmichaud++
17:43 moritz anyway, at least my problem is workaroundable
18:22 diakopter joined #phasers
18:24 diakopter did I miss it?
