01:04 davidfetter joined #plparrot
02:27 davidfetter dukeleto, hrm. this business with including stuff for each PL in the PL/Parrot source is not gonna scale super well
02:28 davidfetter /* TODO: Refactor into struct */
02:28 davidfetter Parrot_Interp interp, untrusted_interp, trusted_interp,
02:28 davidfetter p6_interp, p6u_interp;
02:32 dukeleto davidfetter: indeed. Please fix :)
02:32 dukeleto davidfetter: there should be a seperate foo.c for each language, in a directory
02:32 davidfetter heh. i deserved that
02:32 davidfetter right
02:33 dukeleto davidfetter: have you tried the plparrot from fedora?
02:33 dukeleto davidfetter: does it work?
02:33 dukeleto davidfetter: i actually haven't tried it yet
02:33 * davidfetter tries it
02:33 dukeleto davidfetter: that fixes your "having parrot installed and working for a presentation", if it works ;)
02:33 davidfetter heh
02:34 davidfetter the trick is swiitching to a fedora VM in the middle of the aforementioned preso
02:41 dukeleto davidfetter: just ssh in
02:41 dukeleto davidfetter: or connect via DBI or whatever
02:41 dukeleto davidfetter: you don't need it running locally to show it off
02:41 davidfetter oh, excellent point!
02:42 davidfetter running it locally on a VM helps with several things
02:42 davidfetter ...like keeping the slings and arrows of conference network connectivity out of my back
02:42 dukeleto davidfetter: yes, like not having net access :)
02:42 * dukeleto can't live without tethering, now that he has it back
02:42 dukeleto Tethering solves many problems.
02:43 davidfetter i can set the VM so it accepts network connections :)
02:43 * davidfetter 's groovy MiFi device does not work in .au
02:43 dukeleto If you are in a foreign country though, having it locally will be a lot cheaper ;)
02:43 dukeleto yep, alas.
02:43 * davidfetter hopes that some day, we'll look back on the absence of ubiquitous wireless broadband and think, "howtf did we ever live without?"
02:45 davidfetter what's the simplest possible PL/Perl6 function?
02:47 davidfetter ah. found it ;)
02:50 davidfetter dukeleto, how long should it take for the fibonacci function to start up?
02:50 davidfetter assuming cold caches, etc.
02:51 davidfetter SELECT * FROM test_fibonacci_plperl6(10);
02:51 davidfetter server closed the connection unexpectedly
02:51 davidfetter This probably means the server terminated abnormally
02:51 davidfetter before or while processing the request.
02:51 davidfetter The connection to the server was lost. Attempting reset: Failed.
02:51 davidfetter @:!>
02:51 davidfetter d'oh!
02:53 dukeleto davidfetter: your Rakudo is too new :)
02:53 dukeleto davidfetter: yeah, that bug manifested itself a few months ago, something in Rakudo and/or Parrot changed
02:53 davidfetter i'm pretty sure i have only the packaged rakudo
02:53 dukeleto davidfetter: that is the rakudo that came with the fedora package?
02:53 davidfetter yep
02:54 davidfetter while i like to live on the bleeding edge for dev, i'm also interested in reproducibility
