17:29 Util Pre-report. Still working on advent post: Idiomatic Perl 6 and Perl 6 Idioms.
17:29 Util EOR
17:33 lichtkind joined #phasers
17:33 PerlJam ping
17:33 Util Hello
17:33 PerlJam who's alive?
17:33 PerlJam who's running this #phasers?
17:33 * jnthn just got to stockholm
17:34 * moritz alive and distracted
17:34 jnthn This week I mostly did various small fixes here and there. Was mostly distracted with $dayjob.
17:35 jnthn I think it's my turn to advent post today too
17:35 PerlJam was just checkign that.
17:35 PerlJam 14 Meta Programming -- jnthn
17:36 PerlJam I *might* be able to do a Dec 15 post if I can get an idea I can write something about soonish
17:37 moritz my report:
17:37 moritz managed to throw typed exceptions from Perl6::Actions
17:38 moritz various bits and pieces
17:38 moritz advent post managing
17:38 moritz EOR
17:39 moritz plan to do: some advent posting
17:39 moritz a grant report blog post
17:40 PerlJam moritz: could you get an advent post out of your grant work?
17:40 moritz oh, forgot to say: implemented ObjAt
17:40 moritz PerlJam: I might combine that
17:43 jnthn moritz: Your ObjAt worked looked sane enough to merge. Need some thought on exactly how it will work out with object hashes.
17:44 moritz jnthn: you can simply nqp::unbox_s($key.WHICH), and use the result as a key into the parrot hash
17:45 Util For the #phasers record: .munch vs .batch: .batch is in the Specs but not in Rakudo or Roast. .munch is not in Spec, *is* in Rakudo and used but not tested in Roast. @Larry guidance wanted.
17:45 Util Conversation here: http://irclog.perlgeek.de/perl6/2011-12-14#i_4833187
17:45 moritz is .batch specced to be destructively?
17:45 jnthn moritz: yeah. it's not meant to be the default though.
17:46 jnthn moritz: Anyway, please do go ahead and merge it. Then we're a roadmap item down, and another + on features :)
17:46 moritz :-)
17:46 moritz will do after supper
17:48 jnthn Great.
17:48 jnthn I probably find some dinner, then write my advent post afterwards. Pretty hungry :)
17:48 colomon o/
17:49 * colomon forgot to pre-report
17:51 sorear oops!
17:51 sorear hi.
17:51 sorear who all is here?
17:52 * PerlJam
17:52 Util moritz, jnthn I think that .batch is specced to be always non-destructive (iterator), which is why we can't just have a naming conversation vs. (the always destructive) .munch.
17:52 cognominal joined #phasers
17:53 * Util must leave now. Will backscroll both here and #perl6
17:54 sorear DID: bits and pieces in niecza
17:55 sorear mailed the ICU people for permission to use their (unlicenced!) character database compiler
17:55 sorear compiled a list of missing S05 features - will try to get most of them done for v11
17:56 sorear in particular, made \n ^^ $$ match any logical newline, added new character class syntax, added & to regexes, and started on supplementary character support
17:56 sorear EOR
18:03 colomon Report:
18:03 colomon * Discovered 0i ** $n problem, fixed it in Niecza, added tests to Roast.
18:03 colomon * More work on adding chords to ABC.
18:03 colomon * Pestered jnthn++ until he fixed Nom bugs blocking a $work script.
18:03 colomon * Appear to have discovered horrible bugs in Nom file-handling.
18:03 colomon * Got arith.t fudged to work on Niecza.
18:03 colomon Plan:
18:03 colomon * Advent blog post on Gtk Mandelbrot.
18:03 colomon * Making ABC chords work.
18:03 colomon * Getting more test files running on Niecza.
18:03 colomon EOR
18:04 colomon oh, yeah, and removed .munch statements from S03-sequences/basic.t.  ;)
18:04 moritz colomon++ sorear++ jnthn++ Util++ PerlJam++
18:17 colomon is anyone else seeing the sorts of weirdness I am with nom's filereading?
18:22 colomon for instance, I just tried my handy LHF detector under nom instead of niecza.  It looks like it worked properly for dozens of files, then I get Unable to open filehandle from path 't/spec/S03-smartmatch/any-method.t' -- even though that's a perfectly valid file.
19:45 tadzik o/
19:45 sorear o/
19:46 tadzik oh, I'm quite late
19:47 tadzik anyway, just ftr: some steps to make panda run on windows, wrote 2 advent posts
