Time Nick Message
17:29 sorear PREREPORT: started trying to finish roles.  Welcomed ruoso as a contributor.  Changed Niecza to invoke the binder *after* filling variable default values.  Added END.  Changed MMD to more reliably reject ambiguous cases.
17:30 sorear Hash.perl is now sorting keys.  A few other uninteresting/uncontrovertial changes. EOR
17:30 colomon o/
17:31 sorear o/
17:33 colomon sorear: any reason Order would be trickier than just adding an Enum?
17:35 sorear no
17:35 * TimToady wonders if there should be sign function when <=> is so near to hand...
17:35 TimToady $x <=> 0
17:36 colomon Is Order ~~ Numeric?
17:36 TimToady good question, dunno
17:37 TimToady most enums are conceptually subsets of Int
17:37 sorear colomon: yes.  all numish Enums are
17:38 TimToady pity they got the sign of Order wrong back in the day
17:38 TimToady good argument for a sign function
17:39 TimToady or for fixing Order :)
17:40 * colomon is against messing with tradition
17:40 TimToady P6 is ambivalent on the subject
17:41 TimToady I'm okay with leaving it if we have a sign that returns Int
17:42 colomon is it something like enum Order<<:Increase(-1) :Same(0) :Decrease(1)>> then?
17:42 pyrimidine joined #phasers
17:42 sorear enum Order (:Increase(-1), :Same(0), :Decrease(1));
17:43 sorear can't use << >>, no val() yet
17:43 sorear (there's a good chance this won't work because of enum staleness)
17:45 colomon trying...
17:45 colomon errr, perhaps should move this conversation out of #phasers.  :)

18:23 masak well, that was a short #phasers.
18:24 sorear do we need to change the time again?
18:25 moritz well, currently I'm on vacation, there's a chance I won't forget the time once I'm working again
