01:54 eMBee mikemol: i agree, that is an issue, but, the thought that came to mind to me is that someone might fork rc and attempt to duplicate it as a whole for the same philosophical reason. i don't know about you, but i think people spending time to reimplement examples within rc is the better option
01:55 eMBee they will find that many examples can't be reimplemented anyways because that is just the way things are done
01:56 eMBee do you want to move this discussion to [[Rosetta_Code:Copyright]]?
01:56 fedaykin http://rosettacode.org/wiki/Rosetta_Code:Copyright (Doesn't exist.)
01:57 eMBee i mean [[Rosetta_Code_talk:Copyright]]
01:57 fedaykin http://rosettacode.org/wiki/​Rosetta_Code_talk:Copyright (Doesn't exist.)
01:57 eMBee grrr
01:58 eMBee [[Rosetta_Code_talk:Copyrights]]
01:58 fedaykin http://rosettacode.org/wiki/​Rosetta_Code_talk:Copyrights
01:58 eMBee that's the one :-)
02:15 mikemol eMBee: A good way to do this is drop a link to the IRC logs related to this conversation.
02:16 * mikemol is trying to do some server maintenance. Doesn't help when MW throws an exception every time he tries to make an edit.

02:41 eMBee sure, i was thinking of copying the talk, but if a link is good enough, i'll do that...
03:57 mikemol eMBee: I think a fork/reimplementation is more likely to have "get us to git or mercurial" as a motivation than "get us to a better license". Fewer people care about the license than care about the access mechanism.
04:20 eMBee hmm, i love git, but i don't see how one could build something like rosettacode with it
04:20 eMBee such a site would not be successful
04:27 eMBee at least i wouldn't use it.
04:28 eMBee the more i use rc the less i am bothered by the fact that it is on mediawiki, the content beccomes more important than the form...

14:02 GlitchMr I feel like idiot. I ran code (Perl 5): sub {a()} a()
14:02 GlitchMr And it frozen my PC
14:02 GlitchMr I had to reboot
14:02 GlitchMr It didn't reacted on anything
14:03 eMBee heh
14:14 mikemol That seems strange.
14:14 mikemol Perl 5 doesn't have any recursion limits?
14:50 kpreid perhaps the recursion limit is the same as the heap limit and you get wedged due to extreme swapping
14:50 kpreid (that said, I'm surprised it doesn't just blow the C stack. Perl 5 does have tail calls but I thought you had to ask for them.)

15:21 GlitchMr ⍝ :)
15:21 GlitchMr APL is weird...
15:26 FireFly joined #rosettacode
15:27 mwn3d_phone GlitchMr: if you want normal characters you can use J
15:27 GlitchMr :)
15:27 GlitchMr But still, APL is weird
15:28 mwn3d_phone So is J :p
15:28 mikemol It would be interesting to see straight translations of J to APL.
15:28 mwn3d_phone Yeah I'm not sure how much it has evolved since APL
