01:00:03 -!- Waddledee has joined.
01:01:51 <GregorR> 'ello
01:03:19 * Waddledee waves!
01:04:33 <GregorR> What brings you to #esoteric?
01:05:13 <GregorR> Or welcome back if I just haven't noticed you X-P
01:07:32 * Waddledee saw the Wikipedia article on IRP and decided to poke his lack of nose in on a whim.
01:08:34 <GregorR> Hahah, since when is there a Wikipedia article on IRP? XD
01:09:16 <GregorR> I presume you mean on the esolangs wiki, though it would be hilarious if there was one on Wikipedia ;P
01:10:51 * Waddledee attempts to figure out how he got here. ('');
01:11:25 <GregorR> Heh
01:11:28 <Waddledee> Ah, here it is! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DWIM has a link to http://esoteric.voxelperfect.net/wiki/IRP
01:11:48 <GregorR> Hahah
01:11:59 <GregorR> It amuses me that my stupid IRP page has been linked to from Wikipedia ;P
01:12:42 <Waddledee> Fear its awesome power. (^^)
01:12:51 <GregorR> I have to figure out who posted that there ^^
01:13:46 <Waddledee> Sam Pointon, according to the edit history.
01:14:03 <GregorR> Yup.
01:14:07 <GregorR> Who knows who that is :P
01:14:12 <GregorR> Surprised it's not somebody in here (AFAIK)
01:17:16 <Waddledee> So. Um. Soda?
01:17:30 <GregorR> Sure! Got some handy?
01:19:50 * Waddledee tosses GregorR a soda: pineapple! It's got a picture of Rick on the side.
01:20:55 <GregorR> I'm mildly terrified, but will still drink :P
01:21:03 * GregorR pops open the soda.
01:24:05 <Waddledee> It's just pineapple soda with a picture of a hamster on it. I got it at Waddle Mart.
01:24:24 <GregorR> Oh, Rick is a hamster.
01:24:36 <GregorR> OK, it's at least slightly less terrifying now.
01:25:17 <GregorR> And then, Gregor dissapeared!
01:25:32 <GregorR> (IE I have stuff to do which doesn't involve sitting at the computer X-P)
01:30:19 * Waddledee waves bye to GregorR.
01:40:19 * Waddledee listens to the quiet.
01:50:38 -!- Waddledee has quit ("*wanders*").

02:21:23 <GregorR> OK, /me stops :P
02:21:26 <calamari> hehehe
02:21:34 <lament> wow, IRP really works
02:21:51 <lament> Please send me all your money.
02:22:00 <calamari> done :(
02:22:49 <GregorR> Illegal Operation
02:23:18 <calamari> are you suggesting a course of action? :)
02:23:28 <GregorR> Yes 8-D
02:23:40 <GregorR> Please break into somebody's house and steal something not particularly valuable, like a fork.
02:24:35 <calamari> oh my.. I seem to have violated IRP etiquette
02:24:47 <calamari> thank you GregorR for your assistance in running my IRP program ;)
02:25:12 <GregorR> Your welcome, calamari! :P
02:25:26 <GregorR> And thank you for running mine which was really just yours by proxy.
02:27:06 <calamari> well I have females chasing me... but they are just mosquitos
02:27:24 <GregorR> Gotta get what you can where you can X-P
02:27:35 <GregorR> I guess that phrase doesn't apply when you're married, does it :P
02:30:12 <lament> what the hell is this
02:30:13 <lament> http://esoteric.voxelperfect.net/wiki/Yellow_Four_Code
02:32:01 <GregorR> Umm
02:32:13 <GregorR> Can't answer that 8-X

02:52:30 -!- Arrogant_ has quit ("Leaving").
03:02:29 -!- Arrogant has quit (Connection timed out).
03:02:37 <calamari> hmm.. smaller code: reading the program from stdin, writing to stdout :)
03:04:21 <GregorR> I thought the assumption was that it would do that.
03:04:34 <GregorR> Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmn
03:05:07 <GregorR> Here's an issue: I want to write an interpreter for i386 to run i386 code - that should be tough, yeah. Write it into memory then jmp. Difficult.
03:06:22 <calamari> that would be cheating, because it is essentially using the cpu as an external library
03:06:49 <calamari> btw you wouldn't even need to jmp
03:06:55 <calamari> just echo in to out
03:07:23 <calamari> oh.. interpreter
03:07:31 <calamari> this is a compiler challenge
03:07:42 <calamari> bf was the smallest compiler
03:08:08 <GregorR> Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh, compiler.
03:08:12 <GregorR> OK, yeah, then just echo in to out :P
03:08:47 <GregorR> Argh, this homework is so stupid: "5) Obtain the HTTP/1.1 specification and answer the following questions: a) Explain the mechanism ..."
03:08:50 <GregorR> That's not a question, stupid!
03:09:11 <calamari> Just mentally change Explain to What is
03:23:23 <calamari> GregorR: so, what is a rule to prevent the cat compiler?
03:25:40 <GregorR> calamari: The source language and the destination language must not be otherwise interoperable?
03:25:58 <GregorR> That's probably too binding slash difficult to explicate.
03:26:03 <calamari> so then I just subtract one from the "source" -> "det"
03:26:05 <calamari> dest
03:26:11 <calamari> or add one or whatever
03:26:14 <GregorR> Right.
03:26:17 <GregorR> Bleck.
03:38:01 <calamari> can't even restrict the program to printable characters, because you can wiggle out of that one in dos
03:39:23 <calamari> (the printable characters are sufficient to build an extraction program)
03:41:00 <calamari> not under linux tho
03:41:18 <calamari> but then we have to deal with elf headers
03:57:51 <GregorR> Fram.
03:58:16 <GregorR> Fram is the word that means "Don't do this. Yeah, you know what I mean. Don't do it.
04:04:08 <lament> what's a cat compiler?
04:14:34 -!- GregorR_ has joined.
04:15:15 <GregorR_> lament: That was the example of compiling i386 code to i386 code as a simple compiler.
04:15:25 <GregorR_> Of course, it's not a compiler at all, it's `cat`

04:37:33 <lament> ah, well
04:37:35 <lament> it certainly qualifies
04:38:24 <lament> it's just really shitty since it has no error detection whatsoever
04:44:01 <GregorR> Heh
05:02:31 -!- Sgeo has quit (Read error: 104 (Connection reset by peer)).
05:29:28 <calamari> does it help if its an interpreter?
05:29:42 <GregorR> Only slightly.
05:29:43 <lament> cat?
05:36:20 <calamari> what I mean is it might be easier to define a rule
05:36:58 <GregorR> Oh
05:37:13 <GregorR> Such as 'the input must be processed conditionally'
05:37:29 <calamari> right, something like that
05:50:40 -!- Waddledee has joined.
05:51:40 * Waddledee waves!
06:07:03 * Waddledee waves?
06:07:40 <GregorR> Hi :P
06:08:45 <Waddledee> Is it normally this quiet in here, or did I come at a bad time?
06:09:11 <GregorR> It's usually pretty quiet.
06:09:15 <GregorR> Occasionally it gets noisy.
06:09:23 <GregorR> It waxes and wanes.
06:10:19 * Waddledee nods, taking a seat on a little cushion. Wanna chocolate capsule?
06:11:10 <GregorR> If you take the brown pill, you'll see just how far the rabbit hole goes.
06:11:20 <GregorR> If you take the blue pill, well, yeah, you get the idea.
06:13:08 * Waddledee gives GregorR a chocolate capsule. Inside is a Series Two Kaboomba, with walking-off-ledges action!
06:14:38 * GregorR doesn't recognize the reference.
06:17:25 <Waddledee> It, like me, is a critter from the Kirby games. It's a bomb with feet. It likes to walk off ledges and fall on Kirby's head.
06:17:48 <Waddledee> Sprite: http://kirby.classicgaming.gamespy.com/games/nightmare/enemies/kaboomba.PNG
06:20:51 <lament> what the fuck.
06:21:20 <GregorR> Hahaha
06:23:46 * Waddledee is a fan of the Kirby games, as you might guess.
06:39:03 <lament> that's horrible.
06:39:07 <lament> A bomb with feet.
06:39:40 <lament> I was just reading the wikipedia article about Kaiten, japanese manned suicide torpedoes
06:39:51 * Waddledee nods.
06:54:54 <lament> Yet another reason to dislike Kirby games.
06:56:19 * Waddledee looks a little hurt.
