12:05 colomon looking at getting p6 version of TestML working again
12:05 colomon arguments.tml starts %TestML 1.0
12:05 colomon but the regex for parsing it is <PERCENT> 'TestML' <COLON> <BLANK>+ <testml_version>
12:06 colomon so should it be %TestML: 1.0
12:06 colomon or <PERCENT> 'TestML' <COLON>? <BLANK>+   ?
19:35 colomon I've assumed <COLON>? and forged ahead.
19:35 colomon but Plan = 2;
19:36 colomon seems to confused the grammar, and I'm having a really hard time seeing how it could have ever worked.  :(
19:48 ingy hi colomon
19:49 ingy start with https://github.com/ingydotnet/testml-tml
19:49 ingy I want to do a direct port from https://github.com/ingydotnet/testml-pm
19:50 ingy I was going to start on that pretty soon
19:50 ingy but great if you could
19:50 ingy also look at https://github.com/ingydotnet/testml-rb
19:50 ingy it is pretty much a line for line port
19:51 ingy eventually testml-{pm,pm6,rb,…} will be generated from one source
19:51 ingy so I am trying to make all the ports be exactly the same
19:51 ingy they all pass the -tml test suite
19:52 ingy I also got a node.js port done in coffee a while back
19:52 ingy but it is not currently in perfect parity
19:52 ingy the grammar is here: https://github.com/ingydotnet/testml-pgx
19:53 ingy but I removed the pegex dependency for testml
19:53 ingy well it's a little more complicated than that
19:53 ingy but you don't need to know about that now
19:54 ingy colomon: I could get a basic structure of a pm6 port going later tonight
19:54 ingy and let you fill in the blanks
20:04 colomon ingy: I don't know how involved I have time to get.  I just noticed that there were a number of p6 modules failing because of a TestML dependency, and thought it might be a relatively easy issue to fix.
20:21 ingy colomon: ok, cool. I'm on it. hold me to it. :)
20:31 colomon will do.  ;)
