18:21 davidfetter hai dukeleto
18:21 davidfetter what's new & good?
18:21 davidfetter failing that, what's new | good? ;)
18:22 dukeleto PL/Perl6 got some new features
18:23 davidfetter do tell :)
18:23 dukeleto end users can control the function signatures now
18:23 davidfetter oh, and is there some way to get pushes to send email? i'm super terrible at actually going somewhere and checking
18:23 davidfetter get git pushes*
18:25 * davidfetter spoiled by pgsql-commit
18:28 * davidfetter notes that the recent commit history is full of dukeletos, and goes to fix that
18:28 pukeleto joined #plparrot
18:28 davidfetter heh
18:28 pukeleto http://pl.parrot.org/plperl6.html is updated
18:29 pukeleto my irc server is not responding right now
18:29 davidfetter sweet!
18:29 davidfetter re: updates
18:29 pukeleto it is possible to set up a post-commit hook to so that commits get sent as emails
18:30 pukeleto davidfetter: you can also subscribe to the rss feed of commits, too
18:30 davidfetter that would be pretty awesome
18:30 davidfetter i guess i'm too old for that. really prefer inbox hits to things i need to check
18:30 pukeleto i added a test last night that uses a perl 6 regex from a procedure, and I am going to write one that uses a grammar today
18:30 davidfetter yay!
18:30 pukeleto davidfetter: you don't use an rss reader?
18:31 davidfetter i have them, but i don't use them to check software progress
18:32 pukeleto that is reasonable
18:32 pukeleto i guess :)
18:32 davidfetter did SETOF go in?
18:32 pukeleto no, that is just a branch with some tests
18:32 davidfetter k
18:32 pukeleto my PDXPUG talk is tomorrow
18:32 davidfetter kudos!
18:32 pukeleto i need to finish slides, trying to make some that are exciting
18:33 davidfetter as they say in show biz, break a leg
18:33 davidfetter i've been doing more live demos lately. i feel brave
18:33 pukeleto placeholder variables work now too, they didn't before
18:33 pukeleto yeah, maybe I will try a live demo
18:33 davidfetter "brave" in the sense of "what have you been smoking?!?"
18:33 davidfetter oh, coolio re: the placeholder variables :)
18:34 davidfetter is that branch merged?
18:34 pukeleto davidfetter: yes, placeholder variables are in master
18:34 davidfetter w00t w00t!
18:36 pukeleto davidfetter: if you can think of any other fancy stuff that I can show off, let me know
18:36 * pukeleto has to jet out, will be back later
18:36 davidfetter pukeleto, ease of installation would be something worth demo'ing
18:40 davidfetter pukeleto, as in "start with a working OS, end up writing some plparrot code."
18:40 davidfetter pukeleto, or as many steps of that seem sane
19:58 davidfetter joined #plparrot
20:54 justatheory joined #plparrot
22:07 dukeleto back again
22:07 dukeleto davidfetter: i would really like to make a debian package for plparrot
22:08 davidfetter yeah, me too. lemme bug dim, who may have forgotten what he said he'd do.
22:08 davidfetter what do you think of the download link?
22:09 dukeleto davidfetter: which one?
22:10 dukeleto davidfetter: i am thinking of tagging another release today, so that people can download 0.02 from github
22:11 davidfetter oh, i put one into pl.parrot.org
22:11 * dukeleto looks
22:11 davidfetter figured it would increase the jfdi factor :)
22:11 dukeleto what happens if I want the literal string $$ in a stored procedure? how do I escape that?
22:11 davidfetter use $q$ or such to make the function body
22:12 davidfetter CoR FUNCTION foo() LANGUAGE PLperl6 AS $q$ ... $$ here ... $q$
22:12 davidfetter you can put pretty arbitrary strings of \S between the $s
22:12 pukeleto wow.
22:13 pukeleto davidfetter++ for the download link
22:13 pukeleto good idea
22:13 davidfetter oh, and could you please get the zip and tarball not to have sha stuff in the names?
22:14 davidfetter having it just be plparrot-0.2.0 (or whatever) would really help with packaging, at least with RPMs. they have a natural ordering that way
22:15 dukeleto davidfetter: yes, i can do that
22:15 davidfetter thanks a bunch :)
22:18 dukeleto davidfetter: evidently $$$ is not valid to delimit stored procedures
22:19 davidfetter heh
22:19 davidfetter i like $q$ (or more q's) as a mnemonic for "quote"
22:20 dukeleto i just wrote a test that uses a Perl 6 grammar
22:31 dukeleto good riddance, puker
22:32 davidfetter heh
