08:55:01 <fizzie> I'm not completely certain that bot works correctly. This is what I got when I tried to test it via privmsg:
08:55:12 <fizzie> 10:54:16 <fizzie> Hey, fungot, does your nonsense generation work?
08:55:12 <fizzie> 10:54:16 <fungot> fizzie: i think not.
08:55:12 <fungot> fizzie: heh. i don't think
08:55:13 <fungot> fizzie: 30min sounds like a plural
08:55:41 <fizzie> fungot: Oh! So you said "i think not" because you actually do not think at all. Now I get it.
08:55:42 <fungot> fizzie: i was wishing we could use only 1-ary functions and currying really mutually exclusive?
09:04:18 <oklopol> where was the source again?
09:04:45 <fizzie> http://zem.fi/~fis/fungot.b98.txt is most of it.
09:04:46 <oklopol> fungot: in what language?
09:04:47 <fungot> oklopol: take the last three days or so
09:05:18 <oklopol> i like the love triangle there
09:05:30 <fizzie> It's not the most current version, I think I got rid of NULL fingerprint usage at least.
09:05:38 <oklopol> seems it's some kind of tokenizer?
09:05:49 <oklopol> hmm
09:05:53 <oklopol> or not, actually
09:06:03 <fizzie> The triangle is the token-to-punctuation code of the nonsense generator.
09:06:34 <oklopol> you should add some more triangles
09:06:38 <fizzie> The first 16 or so tokens are handled by going to that 'j' and then letting that pick one of the 'v's there.
09:06:40 <oklopol> triangles are awesome
09:07:53 <fizzie> There's another jump table -like structure around line 264, for the brainfuck bytecode thing, but it's significantly less triangley.
09:07:54 -!- olsner has quit ("Leaving").
09:11:16 <fizzie> I don't really know why I bothered writing 200000 as "2aaaaa*****" when I could've gotten the reasonably close 2^18 with something like "8:*::**", a lot shorter.

10:31:02 <AnMaster> <fizzie> The first 16 or so tokens are handled by going to that 'j' and then letting that pick one of the 'v's there.
10:31:03 <AnMaster> hm
10:31:10 <AnMaster> that would be a jump table :D
10:31:15 <AnMaster> literally
10:31:23 <AnMaster> in funge
10:31:28 <AnMaster> who would have tought
10:32:12 <fizzie> There's another (a vertically oriented one) in the brainfuck bytecode interpreter.
10:32:47 <AnMaster> ah I see it
10:32:59 <AnMaster> fizzie, why do you use a triangle btw?
10:33:03 <AnMaster> it seems pointless
10:33:20 <AnMaster> you could just write the code paths vertically
10:33:40 <AnMaster> and you seem to go right up again
10:33:43 <fizzie> It's pretty that way, and there was empty space. :p
10:34:03 <AnMaster> fizzie, you know that you are probably the only person who can read the code?
10:34:22 <AnMaster> fizzie, and you got a lot of trailing whitespaces on the line below "looptest"
10:34:23 <fizzie> I'm not sure I can read it all that well, since I haven't worked with it in a week or so.
10:34:47 <fizzie> Yes, there was probably something on that line and I erased only the visible parts.
10:34:56 <AnMaster> fizzie, you should document the code structure, I mean a diagram showing "brainfuck region" and so on
10:37:13 <fizzie> I probably would've documented it better if I had an editor which could attach comments to arbitrary regions of a text file.
10:38:15 <AnMaster> fizzie, I meant somewhat like the image on http://www.quinapalus.com/wires11.html
10:39:27 <fizzie> I guess I could do something like that, although it really isn't large enough to create a really impressive picture, and it's just tall and thin, not very square-like at all.
10:39:39 <AnMaster> hm ok
10:40:42 <fizzie> The "no more than 80 columns" rule I've followed has maybe made it easier to edit, but it's disappointingly linear code now.
10:47:47 <AnMaster> fizzie, and maintainable

10:54:04 <AnMaster> oklopol, you clearly aren't seasoned in reading funge

10:54:15 <oklopol> err

10:55:06 <AnMaster> oklopol, ever looked at mycology source?
10:55:12 <oklopol> yeah
10:55:25 <AnMaster> mycology is way less readable

14:05:06 <ais523> within normal English pluralising rules
14:09:47 <fizzie> "Gnirtsies."
14:10:47 <ais523> fizzie: that would be the plural of gnirtsy

14:23:20 <oklobol> funny how i thought there would be one but didn't put it there
14:35:03 <AnMaster> well I just needed a name for a function to push a list of gnirts in efunge
14:36:05 <AnMaster> pushGnirtses work
14:39:11 <AnMaster> bzr branch http://rage.kuonet.org/~anmaster/bzr/efunge/b98 efunge98
14:39:14 <AnMaster> if anyone is interested
14:39:23 <AnMaster> you need erlang installed
14:39:25 <Deewiant> AnMaster: for 101-{} and the others, the whole point of printing the problematic code is that you can do "echo '101-{}@' > foo.b98 && run-interpreter foo.b98"
14:39:34 <AnMaster> Deewiant, hm ok true
14:40:04 <AnMaster> Deewiant, and the u got direction messed up -> infinite loop issue?
14:40:12 <Deewiant> and before you ask me about it again, yes there is no corresponding GOOD for that and the next test :-P
14:40:22 <Deewiant> AnMaster: probably fixed in the update I did this morning?
14:40:33 <Deewiant> AnMaster: a 'v' going to nowhere, right?
14:40:45 <AnMaster> well I can't test it
14:40:51 <AnMaster> not going to mess with u code again
14:41:04 <Deewiant> heh
14:41:08 <AnMaster> stackstack and y are the ugliest bits of code I have
14:41:28 <Deewiant> you haven't done fingerprints then yet, I suppose? ;-)
14:41:38 <AnMaster> indeed not
14:41:42 <AnMaster> nor am I sure how I would do it
14:42:00 <ais523> hmm... I'm going to have to write asmfunge at this rate
14:42:05 <ais523> but not right now
14:42:06 <ais523> some time later
14:42:15 <AnMaster> but see the bzr link I posted a few lines above if you are interested!
14:42:26 <AnMaster> Deewiant, it doesn't implement tio= either
14:42:48 <AnMaster> and I'm not going to work more on it today
14:43:14 <AnMaster> Deewiant, an odd bug is that indention for mycology's y output differ between freestanding and running inside the erlang shell
14:43:18 <AnMaster> can't figure out the cause of that
14:43:32 <Deewiant> AnMaster: s/indention/indentation/ btw
14:43:36 <AnMaster> right
14:43:52 <Deewiant> I've seen you make that mistake a couple of times so I figured I'd correct you :-)
14:43:57 <ais523> Deewiant: does Mycology indent with tabs?
14:44:04 <ais523> if so that might be the reason
14:44:12 <Deewiant> yes, it does
14:44:30 <AnMaster> ais523, I use io:format in both cases, so I don't see why it would mangle tabs with erl -no_shell and not mangle them when starting from inside shell
14:44:36 <AnMaster> that would be seriously weird
14:44:58 <ais523> AnMaster: it's possible that the tabstops are different in the two situations
14:45:11 <AnMaster> hm
14:45:27 <Deewiant> of course it tabstops differ the indentation doesn't, it's still 1 or 2 tabs :-P
14:47:33 <AnMaster> ais523, Deewiant the two ways of running below each other: http://rafb.net/p/GSynYV92.html
14:48:26 <Deewiant> rafb eats tabs so that's not very informational
14:48:33 <ais523> it seems that you have a tabstop at 1 the second way of running
14:48:36 <ais523> no idea why though
14:48:42 <AnMaster> Deewiant, well so does my terminal when I copy paste with select
14:48:54 <AnMaster> I don't think the erlang interactive shell even works if you redirect it
14:48:57 <Deewiant> meh, that sucks
14:49:19 <ais523> AnMaster: does it work over ssh?
14:49:30 <ais523> if so, ssh into your own computer and redirect that via tee
14:49:34 <AnMaster> ais523, hm?
14:49:47 <AnMaster> I assume it works over ssh
14:49:49 <ais523> ssh localhost | tee
14:49:54 <ais523> ssh localhost | tee filename
14:49:55 <AnMaster> but ssh simulates a terminal afaik
14:49:59 <ais523> (sorry, corrected version)
14:50:08 <ais523> would mean that you'd get the output in filename as well as onscreen
14:50:09 <AnMaster> well I used erlang over ssh even
14:50:18 <AnMaster> ais523, doesn't tee buffer output?
14:50:19 <ais523> so that's one way to capture the output
14:50:28 <ais523> AnMaster: only to the file, not to stdout I think
14:50:42 <ais523> at least not if stdout's a terminal
14:50:53 <ais523> OTOH the /input/ to tee might be buffered, which could be a problem
14:50:57 <AnMaster> when I redirected the freestanding output to a file, it contained tab chars
14:51:03 <AnMaster> so I guess weird tabstops
14:51:14 <AnMaster> though cfunge in same terminal give normal tabs
14:51:38 <AnMaster> hm wait no it doesn't
14:51:40 <AnMaster> wtf :)
14:51:54 <AnMaster> I guess my terminal settings have got fucked up somehow
14:52:00 <AnMaster> let me check another terminal
14:52:32 <AnMaster> well yes was just that terminal
14:52:36 <AnMaster> no problem then
14:52:49 <ais523> although I still have no idea how you managed to set a tabstop in column 1
14:52:58 <AnMaster> Deewiant, btw apart from getting env vars the program is fully portable I think
14:53:14 <AnMaster> I need to use os:get_env() for environment vars
14:53:20 <AnMaster> so that may or may not work on other OS
14:53:31 <AnMaster> ais523, catting a binary file or something like that I bet
14:53:47 <ais523> do you often cat binary files?
14:53:54 <AnMaster> reset fixes it
14:53:55 <ais523> if so, the "reset" command is very useful to know
14:53:56 <AnMaster> ais523, no
14:54:07 <AnMaster> but as I said, reset fixed the tab stop
14:54:13 <AnMaster> but I probably did cat one by mistake
14:54:21 <ais523> before I learnt about reset I used to cat /dev/random to reset the terminal
14:54:31 <ais523> if you did it often enough the terminal normally ended up sane by chance eventually
14:54:34 <AnMaster> ais523, that is likely to mess it up even more
14:54:40 <ais523> well, yes
14:54:44 <ais523> but I didn't know that at the time
14:55:00 <ais523> and mostly it was about getting the terminal out of high-bit-set mode
14:55:09 <ais523> the resulting terminals often gave curses a field day, though
14:55:14 <ais523> and messed up ls output from time to time
14:55:28 <AnMaster> Deewiant, anyway I think efunge qualifies for mycology results page, though a release will have to wait a bit
14:55:39 <AnMaster> Deewiant, and it's the first bignum one
14:57:20 <AnMaster> wait I will change fingerprint to make use of bignum, I think that is valid
14:57:49 <ais523> heh, there should be a bignum fingerprint with a name like "BIGNUM"
14:57:56 <ais523> so you need 48-bit or better ints to use it...
14:58:07 <AnMaster> ais523, no need, since all cells are bignum here
14:58:08 <AnMaster> so lets see
14:58:19 <ais523> AnMaster: I was speaking in general
14:58:30 <AnMaster> "efunge - A bignum funge interpreter in Erlang" for fingerprint
14:58:34 <AnMaster> what would that end up as
14:58:43 <AnMaster> err
14:58:46 <AnMaster> as handprint
14:58:47 <AnMaster> I mean
14:58:51 <AnMaster> Deewiant, :D
14:58:52 <ais523> some ridiculously large number
14:58:57 <AnMaster> agreed
14:59:23 <AnMaster> "efunge - A BIGNUM Befunge-98 interpreter in Erlang"
14:59:24 <AnMaster> even

15:03:28 <AnMaster> 6566756E6765202D2041204249474E554D20426566756E67652D393820696E74657270726574657220696E2045726C616E67
15:03:28 <AnMaster> ok
15:03:33 <AnMaster> ok wow
15:03:57 <AnMaster> so 16#6566756E6765202D2041204249474E554D20426566756E67652D393820696E74657270726574657220696E2045726C616E67
15:04:05 <AnMaster> Deewiant, what do you think about that for handprint?
15:04:57 <AnMaster> That the interpreter's handprint is 1022815351171939080750602515080902596655856329413174779991860562785344354620645109770120275823379669394014875628110704231
15:05:06 <AnMaster> :D
15:05:38 <ais523> gah, you beat me to it
15:05:46 <AnMaster> ais523, to what?
15:05:53 <ais523> calculating that handprint
15:06:04 <AnMaster> ah yes
15:06:06 <AnMaster> thanks to erlang
15:06:11 <ais523> I was just looking up how to get a character code in Haskell...
15:06:34 <AnMaster> ais523, I generated the format
15:06:54 <AnMaster> using lists:seq() and then lists:map()
15:06:59 <AnMaster> then lists:flattern()
15:07:07 <AnMaster> since in erlang a string is just a list of integers
15:07:10 <AnMaster> :)
15:07:34 <AnMaster> ais523, wonderful idea eh? :D
15:07:47 <AnMaster> it makes a lot of funge stuff a lot simpler
15:07:47 <Deewiant> AnMaster: I sort of think that handprints should be as small as possible so that you can test for them portably
15:07:51 <ais523> AnMaster: a string is a list of char in Haskell
15:07:57 <ais523> and I can't remember the function to convert a char to an integer
15:08:02 <AnMaster> Deewiant, hehe ok, but it would be fun
15:08:03 <Deewiant> ais523: ord
15:08:08 <ais523> Deewiant: thanks
15:08:10 <ais523> Google wasn't helping
15:08:18 <Deewiant> Hoogle is better for such
15:08:29 <AnMaster> Deewiant, still the long handprint is much much more fun!
15:08:31 <Deewiant> http://haskell.org/hoogle/?hoogle=Char+-%3E+Int
15:08:41 <Deewiant> AnMaster: :-P
15:08:52 <ais523> Deewiant: how do you cast an Int to an Integer in Haskell, then?
15:09:08 <AnMaster> Deewiant, and you could test for it, if you overflow you know it can't be it!
15:09:24 <AnMaster> anyway is funge cell integer overflow well defined?
15:09:26 <Deewiant> ais523: fromIntegral
15:09:31 <AnMaster> since they are signed
15:09:41 <Deewiant> ais523: http://haskell.org/hoogle/?q=Int%20-%3E%20Integer again :-)
15:09:48 <ais523> Deewiant: thanks, I know much of the structure of Haskell but am useless with its stdlib
15:09:52 <ais523> and I was looking there too
15:09:55 <AnMaster> Deewiant, ?
15:10:34 <Deewiant> AnMaster: that handprint overflows to some 32-bit value which could theoretically be in use by another interpreter
15:10:49 <Deewiant> and no, overflow is not discussed in the specs
15:10:53 <AnMaster> Deewiant, hm true, so EFUN it is
15:11:09 <AnMaster> but that is booooooooooring
15:11:12 <AnMaster> oh well
15:11:20 -!- oerjan has joined.
15:11:51 <AnMaster> hi oerjan, do you think 0x6566756E6765202D2041204249474E554D20426566756E67652D393820696E74657270726574657220696E2045726C616E67 is a sane number to use for a unique ID of an interpreter?
15:12:13 <oerjan> quite likely
15:12:20 <AnMaster> really? Deewiant doesn't agree
15:12:21 <AnMaster> hm
15:12:35 <oerjan> assuming it was picked at random
15:12:40 <AnMaster> it wasn't
15:12:45 <AnMaster> it is a FUNGE handprint
15:12:51 <AnMaster> so it is ASCII encoded really
15:12:53 <AnMaster> "efunge - A BIGNUM Befunge-98 interpreter in Erlang"
15:12:55 <AnMaster> in this case
15:13:15 <AnMaster> normally they are like CFUN, CCBI, RCSU (iirc) and so on
15:13:24 <AnMaster> to fit in 32 bit interpreters
15:13:57 <AnMaster> anyway I guess I shall go with EFUN instead
15:13:59 <AnMaster> oh well
15:15:14 <oerjan> ok assuming you wanted to call that from another interpreter, it would seem rather useful if that didn't have to be a bignum one
15:15:27 <AnMaster> oh well true
15:15:39 <AnMaster> oerjan, but agree the long one is more fun :D
15:15:44 <oerjan> yeah
15:16:00 <AnMaster> That the interpreter's handprint is 1022815351171939080750602515080902596655856329413174779991860562785344354620645109770120275823379669394014875628110704231
15:16:05 <AnMaster> compared to
15:16:13 <AnMaster> That the interpreter's handprint is 1162237262
15:16:23 <AnMaster> the latter is EFUN as a 32-bit integer
15:16:51 <AnMaster> hm really I should make it a prime number :/
15:16:55 <oerjan> clearly there needs to be a handprint for requesting unlimited length handprints
15:17:02 <AnMaster> $ factor 1162237261
15:17:02 <AnMaster> 1162237261: 1162237261
15:17:04 <AnMaster> OOOOOOH
15:17:14 <AnMaster> one char difference and it is a prime
15:17:19 <AnMaster> that would be... EFUM?
15:17:32 <AnMaster> nah
15:17:44 * AnMaster curses ASCII mapping
15:17:48 <oerjan> what about EFGE
15:18:46 <oerjan> or EFNG
15:18:51 <AnMaster> EFGE is 0x45464745
15:18:55 <Deewiant> AnMaster: that wraps around to "lang" btw, heh
15:19:06 <AnMaster> EFNG 0x45464E47
15:19:08 <Deewiant> at least if I got it correct
15:19:09 <AnMaster> Deewiant, hm where?
15:19:19 <oerjan> i mean are any of those primes
15:19:20 <AnMaster> Deewiant, oh you mean in 32-bit
15:19:22 <ais523> well my Haskell program makes it 1022815351171939080750602515080902596655856329413174779991860562785344354620645109770120275823379669394014875628110704231
15:19:23 <Deewiant> AnMaster: your too-long handprint, in 32-bit it's "lang"
15:19:27 <AnMaster> oerjan, ah let me check
15:19:27 <ais523> which is the same result you got
15:19:30 <ais523> so probably corrrect
15:19:39 <Deewiant> yeah, that's what I got too
15:19:53 <AnMaster> oerjan, nop
15:19:59 <ais523> it's a three-liner the way I wrote it, I was just a little rusty at Haskell so it took me a while
15:20:11 <AnMaster> Deewiant, anyway lang is a cool 32-bit handprint
15:20:11 <AnMaster> :D
15:20:20 <Deewiant> concatMap (flip showHex "" . ord) $ string
15:20:23 <AnMaster> I mean it is even relevant
15:20:33 <ais523> 1818324583?
15:20:36 <ais523> what's special about that?
15:20:42 <Deewiant> it's "lang"
15:20:52 <Deewiant> but in retrospect I guess that's obvious
15:20:57 <Deewiant> since it's the last 4 chars of the string >_<
15:21:00 <ais523> no, I created lang from that
15:21:07 <ais523> *that from lang
15:21:13 <Deewiant> ais523: it's that integer when truncated to 32 bits
15:21:18 <ais523> oh, that's obvious
15:21:19 <AnMaster> Deewiant, that depends on how signed wrapping works
15:21:24 <AnMaster> which is UD in C at least
15:21:26 <ais523> I thought there was something interesting about the number
15:21:37 <Deewiant> nah
15:21:49 <ais523> AnMaster: gcc's definition is interesting, it assumes signed wraps like unsigned except sometimes in the control expression of a loop
15:22:02 <AnMaster> ais523, well it is UD in C
15:22:06 <ais523> or other comparison-like situations
15:22:15 <ais523> AnMaster: gcc's taking advantage of that fact, obviously, as its definition is weird
15:22:22 <AnMaster> ah
15:22:24 <Deewiant> somehow I'm not surprised :-P
15:22:42 <AnMaster> find me a prime fingerprint in 32-bit that works for the name "efunge"
15:22:49 <AnMaster> otherwise I may just use the long one
15:23:05 <AnMaster> it shall be either prime and the name fitting
15:23:16 <AnMaster> or bignum
15:23:18 <oerjan> EF seems necessary
15:23:28 <AnMaster> yes I'd say so
15:23:36 <AnMaster> but EFUM (which is prime) makes no sense
15:23:57 <oerjan> EMUS?
15:24:03 <AnMaster> meaning?
15:24:09 <oerjan> e-mushroom
15:24:15 <Deewiant> heh
15:24:22 <AnMaster> well that *is* prime
15:24:29 <AnMaster> but I totally fail to see how it is related
15:24:30 <AnMaster> :/
15:24:35 <oerjan> fungus
15:24:38 <ais523> AnMaster: fungus = mushroom
15:24:40 <AnMaster> oh right
15:24:41 <AnMaster> hm
15:24:44 <AnMaster> that could work
15:24:53 <Deewiant> ERMS - erlang mushroom
15:25:07 <AnMaster> Deewiant, not prime
15:25:12 <Deewiant> darn
15:25:25 <oerjan> ERFN, ERFU, ERFG
15:25:29 * ais523 likes the concept of e-mushrooms anyway
15:25:31 <AnMaster> let me check
15:25:32 <tusho> AnMaster: what's so good about primality?
15:25:46 <ais523> have a fingerprint that's the sum of two cubes in two different ways
15:25:54 <ais523> it doesn't have to be 1729, make it much bigger
15:25:58 <ais523> then you can annoy people with ti
15:26:01 <ais523> *it
15:26:06 <AnMaster> oerjan, none of them prime
15:26:33 <AnMaster> ERFN is even and factors into "1163019854: 2 581509927"
15:26:34 <oerjan> well the first cannot be since it's even
15:27:01 <AnMaster> EMUS seems good actually
15:27:06 <AnMaster> hm
15:27:39 * oerjan wonders what the perfect number fingerprints are
15:27:40 <AnMaster> ais523, huh what do you mean with cube here?
15:27:49 <Deewiant> AnMaster: x^3
15:27:55 <AnMaster> ah
15:27:59 <AnMaster> well yeah
15:27:59 <ais523> AnMaster: a number that's some integer to the power 3
15:28:15 <AnMaster> two different cubes in two different ways?
15:28:25 <Deewiant> AnMaster: a^3 + b^3 and c^3 + d^3
15:28:26 <AnMaster> ??
15:28:27 <AnMaster> ah
15:28:29 <AnMaster> right
15:28:33 <AnMaster> that is four different
15:28:34 <AnMaster> not two
15:28:40 <Deewiant> AnMaster: two cubes, in two ways.
15:28:43 <AnMaster> ah ok
15:28:45 <ais523> a number is the sum of two cubes if it's a^3+b^3
15:29:00 <ais523> and the sum of two cubes in two different ways if there are two possibilities for (a,b) that work
15:29:07 <AnMaster> anyway I got no idea if 1022815351171939080750602515080902596655856329413174779991860562785344354620645109770120275823379669394014875628110704231 is prime or not
15:29:12 <AnMaster> factor says it is too big
15:29:25 <AnMaster> how many bits is that number hm?
15:29:43 <oerjan> could do the 3 and 11 tests at least
15:29:54 <oerjan> actually haskell should handle those fine
15:30:04 <Deewiant> AnMaster: 398.66391710537613
15:30:13 <ais523> AnMaster: it's divisible by 3
15:30:15 <AnMaster> ah hm
15:30:17 <AnMaster> right
15:30:19 <AnMaster> :/
15:30:30 <AnMaster> well that is ok
15:30:33 <AnMaster> since it is BIGNUM
15:30:43 <AnMaster> but EMUS may work yes
15:30:45 <oerjan> 6, 28, 496, 8128, 33550336, 8589869056, 137438691328
15:31:11 <ais523> oerjan: perfect numbers?
15:31:14 <oerjan> yes
15:31:15 <AnMaster> oerjan, err hm some of those are not primes, so what are the prime factors of 1022815351171939080750602515080902596655856329413174779991860562785344354620645109770120275823379669394014875628110704231
15:31:17 <AnMaster> oh ok
15:31:24 <Deewiant> AnMaster: working on it
15:31:25 <AnMaster> right
15:31:26 <ais523> wow, that 33550336 struck me in the face
15:31:32 <ais523> I've spent all week staring at numbers that start 3355
15:31:36 <Deewiant> that's a tough one, 45 seconds already :-P
15:31:37 <AnMaster> ais523, that's odd
15:32:08 <ais523> 0x02000000 is 33554432
15:32:08 <oerjan> well that's a perfect synchronicity
15:32:15 <AnMaster> 10> io:format("~.16B~n", [33550336]).
15:32:15 <AnMaster> 1FFF000
15:32:19 <AnMaster> now that is interesting
15:32:19 <ais523> and it's the lowest memory address on the heap in gccbf
15:32:33 <AnMaster> 11> io:format("~.16B~n", [8589869056]).
15:32:33 <AnMaster> 1FFFF0000
15:32:35 <AnMaster> huh
15:32:35 <ais523> AnMaster: not really, all perfect numbers are the product of a power of 2 and 1 less than a power of 2
15:32:39 <AnMaster> ah right
15:32:45 <ais523> all even perfect numbers anyway
15:32:46 <oerjan> i thought we were doing byte encoding not hex
15:33:06 <ais523> that's bad as it means that any even perfect handprint will end with lots of NULs
15:33:11 <AnMaster> is it so that all are 0x1F...0... with equal count of F and 0?
15:33:20 <AnMaster> or is that just true for those two?
15:33:20 <oerjan> oh right
15:33:26 <ais523> AnMaster: yes, I think so, past the first few
15:33:29 <AnMaster> 12> io:format("~.16B~n", [137438691328]).
15:33:29 <AnMaster> 1FFFFC0000
15:33:30 <AnMaster> ah
15:33:30 <ais523> 6 is 0x6 for instance
15:33:34 <AnMaster> oh well
15:33:44 <ais523> AnMaster: that C is half an F and half a 0
15:33:50 <AnMaster> hm right
15:33:57 <AnMaster> still an interesting pattern

15:34:22 <AnMaster> right
15:34:31 <AnMaster> Deewiant, hm ok
15:34:40 <AnMaster> Deewiant, how long did it take?
15:34:40 <Deewiant> 2 minutes and 45 seconds
15:34:43 <AnMaster> ah
15:35:13 <AnMaster> I should select an 4096 bit number as fingerprint as a tribute to gpg key sizes
15:35:17 <AnMaster> or something
15:35:25 <tusho> AnMaster: why not... EFUN
15:35:27 <tusho> or EFNG
15:35:31 <AnMaster> tusho, not prime
15:35:35 <tusho> AnMaster: so fucking what?!
15:35:44 <AnMaster> either prime or larger than 32 bits
15:35:47 <tusho> AnMaster: WHY
15:35:54 <AnMaster> tusho, because it is esoteric!
15:36:12 <tusho> AnMaster: it's pointless and not very funny either
15:36:21 <AnMaster> no one said funny
15:36:27 <tusho> it's not esoteric
15:38:11 <oerjan> i'd say it's a prime example of esotericness
15:38:20 <AnMaster> heh
15:39:08 <Deewiant> esotericity
15:39:16 <AnMaster> possibly
15:39:40 <Deewiant> or not
15:39:41 <oerjan> i was trying not to say that
15:39:47 <Deewiant> evidently there's no noun for it
15:39:50 <Deewiant> or I can't find one
15:40:01 <ais523> heh, I noticed an Unlambda interp on hackage, checked the .cabal file and it seems that Oerjan here is at least partially responsible
15:40:05 <ais523> I should have guessed, really
15:40:22 <tusho> we should call esotericy peoples perpetrators
15:40:36 <ais523> tusho: that term is reserved for people who perpetrate INTERCAL compilers
15:40:43 <tusho> and they're "responsible" for languages and interps
15:40:44 <oerjan> there are several unlambda interpreters in haskell i think
15:40:44 <tusho> ais523: aww
15:40:51 <tusho> ais523: but going by my system, what would esolangs and implementations be?
15:40:57 <tusho> plans and crimes?
15:41:16 <ais523> quite possibly
15:41:57 <AnMaster> Deewiant, hm would it be possible to implement MVRS without implementing concurrency I wonder?
15:42:21 <tusho> so perpetrators are responsible for plans and crimes
15:42:24 <tusho> great
15:42:33 <oerjan> hm esoteri(ci)sm means something slightly different
15:43:31 <AnMaster> Deewiant, anyway are you going to test efunge at some point? That project will go dormant now until Friday at least
15:43:35 <Deewiant> AnMaster: yes it would be
15:43:44 <Deewiant> and possibly at some point, yes
15:44:20 <AnMaster> Deewiant, adding it would be simple, since it don't implement anything like TERM or NCRS or any other fingerprint that may need manual checking
15:44:22 <oerjan> esotericity and esotericness both give about 500 google hits

16:19:08 <oerjan> Hiato: does your nick mean something else?
16:19:30 <AnMaster> Deewiant, hm why haven't I seen Mike for some time
16:20:32 <oerjan> AnMaster: mike was actually another secret identity of Radovan Karadzic
16:20:40 <Hiato> oerjan: nope, I actually stole it from a similar one in worms (the original, it was Hialto)
16:20:49 <oerjan> ah
16:21:14 <tusho> Hiato: the game worms? :P
16:22:13 <oerjan> Hialto seems to be a figure from Norse legends
16:22:27 <Hiato> yeppers :)
16:22:36 <tusho> Hiato: which one?
16:22:55 <tusho> 1, dc, 2, wp, wa, 3d, 4, (haven't kept up with the ones after)
16:23:02 <Hiato> one of the random names "generated"
16:23:28 <tusho> i mean, which game?
16:23:37 <tusho> i think wa was the first with random names
16:24:00 <Hiato> http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=Hiato
16:24:05 <oklopol> i've only really played wp, but it was awesome
16:24:19 <tusho> oklopol: W:A is a lot better than WWP with the recent patch
16:24:34 <tusho> it's WWP-crap-bugs+smoother+features
16:24:41 <oklopol> nice
16:26:14 <AnMaster> Deewiant, I sent off a question to Mike asking about tagged tuples for FPDP
16:26:46 <ais523> AnMaster: FPDP seems reasonably simple to me, clearly it should just use 128-bit float on a 64-bit system
16:26:50 <AnMaster> Deewiant, it could even be written using g/p, but not printed out using o
16:26:59 <AnMaster> ais523, I can't do a union of int and double in erlang!
16:27:11 <AnMaster> so I need to use something like {double,1.345}
16:27:17 <AnMaster> on the stack to represent them
16:27:18 <ais523> AnMaster: you could copy the bits by hand, I suppose?
16:27:27 <oerjan> AnMaster: erlang is dynamically typed isn't it
16:27:33 <AnMaster> oerjan, indeed
16:27:44 <AnMaster> but point is following FPDP specs is an issue here
16:27:50 <oerjan> so can't you type check?
16:28:10 <AnMaster> oerjan, well yes I could use is_float()
16:28:17 <AnMaster> but read the FPDP specs
16:28:20 <AnMaster> to see the issue
16:28:39 <AnMaster> ais523, yes erlang can do that kind of, but it is messy and I'd rather avoid it
16:28:50 <AnMaster> and also what if a float was a trap value
16:28:52 <AnMaster> and so on
16:28:56 <AnMaster> that could get messy
16:29:07 <AnMaster> efunge is aimed to be 99.9% percent portable
16:29:11 <ais523> AnMaster: what if someone runs FPDP, then stores the values in the playfield, then runs into them as a command?
16:29:19 <AnMaster> only non-portable erlang function I use so far is os:get_env()
16:29:20 <AnMaster> for y
16:29:35 <AnMaster> and as far as I can see in the docs os:get_env() works on both windows and linux
16:30:20 <Deewiant> AnMaster: you can store them however you like as long as they transparently behave like normal funge-space cells
16:31:25 <AnMaster> Deewiant, btw for efunge / is correct path separator on windows I think, since erlang use forward slash on windows and convert it internally
16:31:32 <Deewiant> AnMaster: and Mike is very active in e-mail, he just isn't here anymore
16:31:34 <AnMaster> as far as I can tell
16:31:41 <AnMaster> Deewiant, I did email him about it
16:31:51 <AnMaster> Deewiant, and no they won't be able to be written out using o
16:31:54 <AnMaster> that just won't work
16:31:58 <Deewiant> AnMaster: / is not correct on Windows IMO, no matter what.
16:32:03 <Deewiant> AnMaster: sure it can work
16:32:08 <AnMaster> Deewiant, well using \ in efunge would fail on windows
16:32:13 <AnMaster> that is how it is simply
16:32:28 <AnMaster> since I use the erlang API
16:32:56 <Deewiant> have you tried it?
16:33:06 <AnMaster> Deewiant, no but the docs seem to indicate it
16:33:23 <AnMaster> I don't have a windows install around
16:33:30 <Deewiant> I do :-P
16:33:37 <AnMaster> Deewiant, do you have erlang on it?
16:33:40 <Deewiant> what do I have to type, I have Eshell V5.5.5 open
16:33:47 <AnMaster> a sec
16:34:30 <AnMaster> file:open("C:\\SomeFileOfYours", [read])
16:34:31 <AnMaster> and
16:34:34 <AnMaster> file:open("C:/SomeFileOfYours", [read])
16:34:39 <AnMaster> Deewiant, err add a . after each
16:34:42 <AnMaster> so
16:34:47 <Deewiant> gotcha
16:35:01 -!- Slereah_ has quit (Read error: 54 (Connection reset by peer)).
16:35:04 -!- Slereah2 has joined.
16:35:14 <Deewiant> AnMaster: both give {ok,<0.number.0>} where number was 32 with / and 34 with \\
16:35:23 <AnMaster> right hm both works then
16:35:26 -!- jix has quit ("This computer has gone to sleep").
16:35:28 <AnMaster> Deewiant, q(). to quit erlang shell
16:35:37 <Deewiant> yes or alt-f4 :-P
16:35:42 <AnMaster> heh
16:36:16 <AnMaster> Deewiant, well there is the filename module to *convert* to native paths, meant for interacting with external tools
16:36:24 <AnMaster> but I can't find path separator in there
16:36:31 <AnMaster> only more higher level functions
16:36:32 <AnMaster> brb phone
16:36:41 -!- jix has joined.
16:36:54 <AnMaster> back
16:37:05 <Deewiant> AnMaster: can't you do something manually to detect OS?
16:37:16 <AnMaster> there is the os module but it is unportable
16:37:17 <ais523> system("uname"), if it fails you're on Windows
16:37:24 <AnMaster> and erlang will always translate paths
16:37:36 <AnMaster> Deewiant, I prefer it to work on other OS like OS9 iirc
16:37:41 <Deewiant> ais523: unless it prints CYGWIN_NT-<number> like it does here :-)
16:37:43 <AnMaster> and every other OS
16:38:09 <AnMaster> Note:
16:38:09 <AnMaster> Think twice before using this function. Use the filename module if you want to inspect or build file names in a porta-
16:38:09 <AnMaster> ble way. Avoid matching on the Osname atom.
16:38:27 <AnMaster> so well I say that / is native in *erlang*
16:38:41 <AnMaster> and I define ERTS (Erlang RunTime System) to be my OS
16:38:41 <AnMaster> :D
16:38:44 <AnMaster> problem solved
16:38:50 <ais523> I'm beginning to be a bit inspired to write perfectly portable float -> int and int -> float convertors
16:38:54 <ais523> which copy the bit pattern using arithmetic
16:39:00 <AnMaster> ais523, err erlang only got double
16:39:03 <AnMaster> not float
16:39:10 <ais523> well, same thing
16:39:14 <ais523> not the same thing
16:39:16 <ais523> but the same idea I mean
16:39:35 <AnMaster> and I *think* the format of it is IEEE 7xx (whatever, can't remember the number) but not sure if implementation/OS defined
16:39:36 <AnMaster> or not
16:39:47 <Deewiant> AnMaster: 754
16:39:52 <AnMaster> Deewiant, ah yes
16:40:00 -!- oerjan has quit ("leaving").
16:40:10 <ais523> AnMaster: everything uses IEEE-format floating point in practice nowadays
16:40:13 <ais523> even gcc-bf
16:40:22 <ais523> it was the easiest format to get hold of soft-float libraries for
16:40:25 <AnMaster> ais523, well something could use x87 ones
16:40:31 <AnMaster> or "system native"
16:41:09 <AnMaster> Deewiant, no I can't find out native path separator in any way it seems
16:41:48 <Deewiant> AnMaster: how would I convert a path to native
16:42:00 <AnMaster> not without building a fake filename, translating to native format, and then looking at some specific index in the string, and that would be error-prone since some OS use a totally different format
16:42:02 <Deewiant> in erlang
16:42:24 <AnMaster> Deewiant, filename:nativename("string").
16:42:37 <AnMaster> Converts Path to a form accepted by the command shell and native applications on the current platform. On Win-
16:42:37 <AnMaster> dows, forward slashes is converted to backward slashes. On all platforms, the name is normalized as done by
16:42:37 <AnMaster> join/1.
16:42:38 <AnMaster> but
16:42:41 <AnMaster> what about OS 9?
16:42:45 <AnMaster> it uses stuff like:
16:42:58 <Deewiant> AnMaster: can you push / on OS 9?
16:43:04 <AnMaster> Macintosh HD:Folder:SubFolder:file
16:43:18 <AnMaster> Deewiant, point is in all cases erlang will handle it transparently from my point of view
16:43:35 <Deewiant> AnMaster: slashes would work on OS 9? O_o
16:43:58 <AnMaster> Deewiant, nop
16:44:12 <AnMaster> now I don't know if there is still any erlang implementation for OS 9
16:44:15 <Deewiant> AnMaster: so you can't push /
16:44:18 <Deewiant> with y
16:44:19 <Deewiant> on OS 9
16:44:20 <AnMaster> I'm pretty sure one existed at some point
16:44:27 <AnMaster> Deewiant, no but erlang would convert it
16:44:28 <AnMaster> internally
16:44:35 <AnMaster> as it did with / on windows
16:44:38 <AnMaster> http://erlang.org/doc/man/filename.html
16:44:42 <Deewiant> AnMaster: yes, so "slashes would work on OS_9? O_o" is true
16:44:51 <AnMaster> http://erlang.org/doc/man/file.html
16:44:57 <AnMaster> Deewiant, yes in erlang
16:45:05 <Deewiant> AnMaster: what about if you have a file called / in OS 9
16:45:13 <Deewiant> (is that possible?)
16:45:20 <Deewiant> or a file containing / in its name
16:45:44 <AnMaster> Deewiant, hm don't remember, iirc it wasn't legal
16:45:49 <AnMaster> but it was ages ago
16:46:45 <fizzie> "Mac allows all except a colon (though a forward slash, /, can cause issues for POSIX paths)."
16:46:48 <fizzie> Says the Internet.
16:47:02 <AnMaster> hm didn't they change it in OS 9.1 or so
16:47:07 <fizzie> And the Internet also says that with some C compilers/runtimes on OS 9, /s work in fopen/friends.
16:47:11 <AnMaster> for forward compatiblity with OS X
16:47:14 <AnMaster> iirc they did
16:47:18 <fizzie> It would make sense.
16:47:36 <AnMaster> wow it was years ago I used macs
16:48:07 <AnMaster> Deewiant, anyway as far as I can tell, letting erlang handle what path separator is actually used is more portable
16:48:17 <AnMaster> that is the point of erlang runtime
16:49:12 <AnMaster> Deewiant, but I guess efunge works under windows or?
16:50:13 <Deewiant> I don't know?
16:50:15 <AnMaster> Deewiant, to give it arguments from the shell you could use efunge:start("foo.b98", ["a", "b"]).
16:50:21 <AnMaster> Deewiant, oh you had erlang installed anyway?
16:50:24 <AnMaster> heh
16:50:27 <Deewiant> yes
16:51:58 <AnMaster> "In Windows, all functions return file names with forward slashes only, even if the arguments contain back slashes. Use join/1 to normalize a file name by removing redundant directory separators."
16:52:00 <AnMaster> interesting
16:52:05 <AnMaster> from the filename module man page
16:52:42 <AnMaster> except nativename() I assume
16:52:55 <AnMaster> Deewiant, or what did filename:nativename() return for you?
16:53:15 <Deewiant> AnMaster: nativename("/") was "\\"
16:53:45 <AnMaster> Deewiant, and it is meant for when you want to send off the path to an external tool, as far as I can tell
16:54:14 <AnMaster> as the other functions return with forward slashes even on windows I assume that is what erlang prefer internally
16:55:27 <Deewiant> AnMaster: what I'd do is nativename(join("foo", "bar")) and get what's between foo and bar :-P
16:55:59 <AnMaster> Deewiant, I define my OS to be Erlang, I will make = evaluate erlang, won't use os:system()
16:56:14 <AnMaster> just because I don't think you could claim it was invalid :P
16:56:26 <Deewiant> not really, no
16:56:30 <Deewiant> unless I can manage to break it ;-)
16:56:53 <AnMaster> Deewiant, well of course you use any = for breaking commands
16:57:01 <AnMaster> rm -rf /path/to/interpreter
16:57:02 <AnMaster> or whatever
16:57:14 <Deewiant> what I meant was finding a case where \ would work and / doesn't
16:57:30 <AnMaster> 0"ibcc 9- llallik"=
16:57:34 <AnMaster> killall -9 ccbi
16:57:47 <ais523> AnMaster: and why would you want to do that?
16:57:47 <AnMaster> Deewiant, in erlang
16:57:54 <AnMaster> ais523, hm? do what?
16:58:00 <ais523> killall -9 ccbi
16:58:09 <AnMaster> ais523, "<Deewiant> unless I can manage to break it ;-)" "<AnMaster> Deewiant, well of course you use any = for breaking commands"
16:58:13 <ais523> surely ccbi shouldn't need the -9 to kill?
16:58:13 <AnMaster> just an example
16:58:19 <Deewiant> AnMaster: 2008-09-15 18:57:14 ( Deewiant) what I meant was finding a case where \ would work and / doesn't
16:58:23 <AnMaster> right
16:58:33 <AnMaster> Deewiant, tell me if you do
16:58:44 <Deewiant> I don't really care enough to bother trying :-P
16:58:47 <AnMaster> anyway as efunge doesn't currently implement i or o
17:01:17 <AnMaster> hm
17:03:23 <AnMaster> hm eval in erlang looks tricky
17:04:35 <AnMaster> seems you have to call several functions on the string: erl_scan functions to tokenise it, then erl_parse functions to get a parse tree, finally erl_eval functions

17:39:36 <oklopol> i can't say i believe that anyone can actually create computers.
17:39:42 <oklopol> they most likely always were
17:40:30 <AnMaster> how do you mean?
17:40:47 <oklopol> just think about it, no one can make anything that small
17:40:55 <oklopol> it's impossible
17:40:57 <AnMaster> yes you can
17:41:04 <AnMaster> using tools
17:41:13 <AnMaster> and the original computers were huge
17:41:25 <oklopol> tools must be made as well.
17:41:57 <oklopol> i believe you can make huge computers, yes
17:42:28 <oklopol> anyway, i wish there was a book about how a computer is actually made, from scratch, but not for dummies, a book that actually explains each and every detail
17:43:02 <oklopol> currently i have a massive body of knowledge about circuit design and digital logic, but i have no idea how the fuck these things are actually made
17:43:29 <ais523> oklopol: are you wondering about how things like ICs are made?
17:43:33 <oklopol> not that i care, now that i think about it
17:43:39 <ais523> mostly it's done using chemistry and light
17:44:03 <oklopol> hmm
17:44:12 <oklopol> i want details
18:16:31 <fizzie> I have a feeling the details are going to be somewhat complicated when the line width goes below 100 nm. Lithography itself is reasonably understandable, though.
18:17:57 <ais523> basically there are various light-sensitive chemicals
18:18:11 <ais523> which can be washed away in a particular acid if they've been exposed to light, but not otherwise
18:18:33 <ais523> in order to make a chip all you need is to be able to place p-type and n-type silicon in arbitrary positions in 3D
18:18:41 -!- Hiato has quit ("Leaving.").
18:19:22 <ais523> so you start out with a block of p-type (for instance), then protect it with a light-sensitive chemical, use optics to expose it to light in a certain pattern, wash away the exposed chemical, then fill the atmosphere with something that turns p-type into n-type
18:19:54 <ais523> to get a 3d pattern rather than just 2d, you continue this alternating between p-type and n-type, and doing it faster each time so the p-type/n-type flip doesn't go as deep each time
18:21:15 <Slereah2> wot wot
18:21:30 <ais523> Slereah2: I was replying, very late, to oklopol
18:21:35 <ais523> oh, and btw hi optbot, hi fungot
18:21:36 <fungot> ais523: it was evoli whom you introduced to begin, i think
18:21:36 <optbot> ais523: i'm blaming the world
18:43:47 <tusho> :D
18:47:19 -!- olsner has joined.
19:22:48 <oklopol> i guess i could believe it if it's done with light
19:23:03 <oklopol> since i can imagine ways to make light patterns smaller
19:24:02 <AnMaster> probably not visible wavelengths though
19:24:16 <ais523> I think they normally use ultraviolet, not too sure about that though
19:24:25 <AnMaster> would make sense
19:25:27 <ais523> I imagine they have something like a reverse microscope, to scale the pattern down to chip size
19:26:29 <oklopol> now it all seems trivial
19:26:31 <oklopol> thank you
19:26:53 <oklopol> now i'd like to know details out of interest, not out of doubting the existance of computers
19:27:17 <oklopol> would be fun to have built a computer from scratch
19:27:48 <oklopol> wonder how many manhours that would take if you know exactly what to do
19:31:11 <AnMaster> ais523, is wikipedia down? en.wikipedia.org times out for me
19:31:21 <ais523> AnMaster: let me check
19:31:33 <AnMaster> ah well google cache will work for now
19:31:58 <ais523> yes, it's up, just slow
19:47:22 <ais523> tusho: anyone else who cares: I found a brilliantly appropriate format in which to distribute C-INTERCAL
19:47:26 <ais523> compressed .pax
19:47:26 <tusho> oh?
19:47:29 <tusho> wut?
19:47:38 <ais523> never heard of it?
19:47:38 <tusho> ais523: wut
19:47:39 <tusho> no
19:47:42 <ais523> heh
19:47:49 <tusho> so it's probably perfect
19:47:51 <ais523> they removed tar from the POSIX standard
19:47:54 <ais523> and put in pax in its place
19:47:58 <tusho> ais523: what? when?
19:48:00 <ais523> 2001
19:48:03 <tusho> ais523: why
19:48:06 <Deewiant> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pax_(Unix)
19:48:12 <ais523> to address some of the deficiencies with tar
19:48:21 <ais523> it's forward-compatible so it can be read with a tar reader
19:48:36 <ais523> so nobody will actually have any trouble decoding the paxball once they know that method works
19:48:55 <ais523> the only practical difference is that the files' ctimes are recorded, in the case of C-INTERCAL
19:49:26 <ais523> although pax is a lot more versatile than that
19:49:29 <tusho> what is wrong with tar
19:49:32 <ais523> also it allows unlimited-length filenames
19:50:11 <ais523> tusho: filenames limited to 99 characters, some information about the file not recorded, GNU tar not actually conforming to the standard?
19:50:20 <tusho> ais523: meh
19:50:21 <tusho> good enough
19:50:24 <ais523> at least, not by default
19:50:31 <Deewiant> AnMaster: I guess you should be using pax too, right?
19:50:32 <ais523> it can generate pax though, nowadays
19:50:42 <tusho> Deewiant: ooh, i don't think he can respond to that one
19:50:47 <ais523> Deewiant: that's the great part, everyone /ought/ to be using pax, nobody does though
19:50:47 <tusho> it fits him perfectly
19:50:52 <AnMaster> Deewiant, ?
19:51:05 <ais523> thus it's totally unusual, and fits the spirit of INTERCAL very nicelt
19:51:07 <ais523> s/t$/y/
19:51:21 <Deewiant> AnMaster: see above discussion
19:51:31 <AnMaster> Deewiant, is it important? I'm kind of busy
19:51:33 <ais523> Deewiant: had you heard of pax before today?
19:51:37 <tusho> AnMaster: very
19:51:38 <Deewiant> ais523: everybody /ought/ to be using INTERCAL, nobody does though? ;-)
19:51:41 <ais523> AnMaster: not really
19:51:46 <tusho> no, ais523
19:51:50 <tusho> i think it's very important
19:51:57 <ais523> Deewiant: INTERCAL isn't a POSIX standard, neither is tar, pax is
19:52:04 <Deewiant> ais523: I think I had, hadn't paid much attention to it though if I had
19:52:17 <Deewiant> I'm fairly sure I had but I couldn't remember without a wikipedia lookup
19:52:17 <ais523> probably most people don't go around reading man 5 tar in their spare time
19:52:40 <Deewiant> ais523: just poking fun at the way it fits in the spirit of INTERCAL :-)
19:53:04 <ais523> Automake have heard of it, although it isn't the default; unfortunately they put .tar.gz/.tar.bz2/tar.lzma extensions on so as not to confuse people, but I'll fix that
19:53:15 <ais523> Deewiant: by being unlike all other programming languages is the original spirit
19:53:29 <tusho> ais523: loads of languages use automake
19:53:33 <tusho> you should write your own build system in c
19:53:34 <ais523> the modern spirit is "by being unlike all other programming languages in a way that the other programming languages can reasonably be claimed to be incorrect"
19:53:38 <tusho> that uses setjmp
19:53:43 <tusho> ooh
19:53:44 <tusho> no setjmp
19:53:45 <tusho> just longjmp
19:53:47 <Deewiant> tusho: why not in INTERCAL?
19:53:47 <ais523> tusho: it's a custom tweaked automake
19:53:58 <tusho> Deewiant: that would be quite thoroughly difficult
19:54:02 <tusho> ais523: yes, but that's more intercally
19:54:03 <ais523> Deewiant: INTERCAL needs special extensions to be able to do file handling and invoke other programs
19:54:19 <ais523> basically the whole thing would be written in extensions, which is not the point
19:54:22 <olsner> longjmp without setjmp <3
19:54:29 <tusho> olsner <3
19:54:32 <tusho> LOVE AT FIRST SIGHT
19:54:59 <olsner> love at first "The program has executed a very large jump." popup
19:55:30 <ais523> the worrying thing is that under gcc it's possible to fake a jmp_buf in a way that will work to some extent on a lot of systems
19:56:18 <ais523> it goes something like {auto char c; jb[0]=__builtin_frame_pointer(0); jb[1]=(&c)-1; jb[2]=&&label; label: ;}
19:56:28 <ais523> of course you'd be mad to try anything of the sort in production code
19:56:29 <tusho> ais523: my word
19:56:34 <tusho> ais523: that is brilliant
19:56:38 <tusho> ais523: put that into c intercal
19:56:54 <ais523> tusho: this is the sort of knowledge you get after playing around with the internals of gcc for several weeks
19:56:58 <tusho> ais523: actually, set that as your quit message
19:57:06 <ais523> really, though, I wouldn't give it more than a 50/50 chance of working
19:57:33 <ais523> especially as I've probably messed up somewhere
19:57:39 <ais523> hmm... that -1 should be +1 on x86, I think
19:57:48 <ais523> or possibly +4, depending on alignment
19:57:57 <ais523> I should probably make c a long long to avoid problems with that
20:04:17 <olsner> hmm, segfaults for me :P
20:04:37 <olsner> and the function is apparently called __builtin_frame_address rather than pointer
20:04:41 <ais523> ah, yes
20:04:48 <ais523> and I'm not at all surprised at that segfault
20:05:06 <ais523> for all I know I got the elements of that in the wrong order
20:05:14 <ais523> try swapping 1 and 2, I'm pretty sure about 0
20:05:41 <olsner> also, I'm on x86_64 :P
20:05:50 <olsner> but it does do the same when compiled with -m32
20:06:15 <ais523> hmm... maybe I'll research a corrected version that at least works on x86
20:09:58 <AnMaster> ais523, I'm also on x86_64
20:10:15 <AnMaster> and it is horribly implementation defined, or undefined
20:10:18 <ais523> well that was meant to be portable to a whole range of processors, most likely I messed it up somewhere
20:10:21 <ais523> and yes I know it is
20:10:24 <ais523> that was kind-of the point
20:10:36 <ais523> normally you'd just use setjmp
20:11:03 <AnMaster> ais523, normally I wouldn't mess with either setjmp or longjmp
20:11:06 <ais523> I think every single statement of that, apart from the auto char c and the null statement at the end, is undefined
20:11:17 <tusho> i love it when AnMaster nitpicks about portability, readable & maintainable code, etc. when we're messing around with stuff in #esoteric
20:11:36 <AnMaster> tusho, maybe it is some sort of meta-esotericness?
20:11:36 <ais523> well, I think it's useful to nitpick about that normally, but my code was intentionally awful
20:11:47 <tusho> ais523: of course - normally
20:11:50 <tusho> but we're in #esoteric
20:11:58 <AnMaster> and yes I see it is something you shouldn't do
20:12:04 <AnMaster> not even with lots of doxygen comments.
20:12:05 <tusho> unreadable, unmaintainable and unportable code is a holy grail
20:12:16 <tusho> see! now he's ranting about decent documentation
20:12:18 <tusho> jesus christ
20:12:29 <AnMaster> tusho, you need a new sarcasm detector
20:12:34 <AnMaster> your must be worn out
20:13:10 <tusho> AnMaster: your breed of sarcasm is neither funny, has any hint of sarcasm being in it at all (seeing as most of the time it's your actual opinion backed up from previous times) and is merely annoying
20:14:08 <AnMaster> are you talking to yourself?
20:14:34 <tusho> no.
20:14:44 <tusho> 'AnMaster:' <- this is a magical little thing that lets you know who I'm talking to
20:14:57 <ais523> please you two, calm down
20:15:01 <AnMaster> tusho, yes I assumed it was some weird mistab
20:15:08 <ais523> I may have to research a fixed setjmp-by-hand
20:15:15 <ais523> to quell this argument somewhat
20:15:25 <tusho> ais523: no, i've dealt with anmaster's annoyance for many months now and it's just pissing me off
20:15:33 <AnMaster> also if you think I like readable code, how do you explain this then:
20:15:35 <AnMaster> set(Fungespace, #fip{offX = OffX, offY = OffY}, {X,Y}, V) ->
20:15:35 <AnMaster> set(Fungespace, {X+OffX, Y+OffY}, V).
20:15:46 <AnMaster> I wouldn't call that readable, yet I wrote it and I'm happy with it
20:15:47 <ais523> AnMaster: that is readable compared to half the stuff I write
20:15:50 <tusho> AnMaster: except i have seen people actually find my sarcasm funny, always is exaggerated so you can tell it is sarcasm
20:15:55 <tusho> and is not generally annoying
20:16:00 <tusho> also, that code is perfectly readable
20:16:04 <tusho> it's just not imperative code.
20:16:31 <AnMaster> agreed it isn't
20:17:23 <tusho> i wouldn't have a problem with this if it wasn't completely impossible to /ignore AnMaster properly seeing as there is regularly discussion with him of which at least one side is interesting
20:17:39 <AnMaster> I say the same about tusho
20:17:40 <AnMaster> really
20:17:54 <ais523> you two seem to get into different sorts of discussions really
20:18:02 <ais523> maybe we need to split #esoteric into two
20:18:12 <tusho> it's hilarious that I was actually the one who invited AnMaster to #esoteic
20:18:15 <tusho> *esoteric
20:18:30 <ais523> tusho: you're both credits to #esoteric; at least, /I/ enjoy both sorts of discussion
20:18:32 <AnMaster> may have been
20:18:37 <tusho> AnMaster: is definitely
20:18:38 <tusho> i recall it
20:18:44 <tusho> you were in #bash asking about your brainfuck impl
20:18:58 <ais523> but tusho gets annoyed when I have long interesting discussions with AnMaster and considers my half interesting but infuriating due to the lack of context and AnMaster's half annoying
20:18:58 <tusho> I asked some stuff about it and helped a bit in /msg, invited you to #esoteric, and then a few months later you just started being incredibly annoying
20:19:02 <AnMaster> tusho, what nick were you using then?
20:19:07 <tusho> AnMaster: ehird`.
20:19:09 <tusho> or ehird
20:19:11 <AnMaster> hm
20:19:27 <AnMaster> ais523, heh?
20:20:05 <ais523> AnMaster: I'm trying to remember when it was
20:20:17 <ais523> probably it was about some Befunge implementation, most likely cfunge
20:21:17 <AnMaster> ais523, which you like right? it seems tusho hates it though
20:21:26 <ais523> AnMaster: yes, I like it
20:22:20 <oklopol> ccbi has a nicer name
20:22:23 <AnMaster> and I actually timed it on life.bf (befunge93 game of life) and cfunge is way faster than any other funge98 I found so far, I guess a dedicated befunge93 with a static 80*25 array would be faster
20:22:51 <AnMaster> all built with -march=k8 -msse3 -O2
20:23:04 <AnMaster> ccbi I had to use Deewiant's build for though
20:23:15 <tusho> brb
20:28:45 <AnMaster> haha
20:28:49 <AnMaster> odd troll in #erlang
20:28:53 <AnMaster> he/she just says
20:28:54 <AnMaster> erlang
20:28:58 <AnMaster> every few minutes
20:29:02 <ais523> bot?
20:29:11 <AnMaster> ais523, no responded with "trolls live in Norway"
20:29:12 <AnMaster> and such
20:29:52 <AnMaster> ais523, no timestamps but see "potar" in http://rafb.net/p/RJkQJY27.html
20:32:04 <ais523> http://hasthelargehadroncolliderdestroyedtheworldyet.com/ <-- why?
20:32:19 <AnMaster> he goes on like that
20:32:24 <oklopol> *me is xxxx. -> why are you xxxx? is actually not that improbable
20:32:41 <ais523> oklopol: ELIZA, IRC version?
20:32:41 <AnMaster> ais523, that got some java script...
20:32:46 <AnMaster> with "YUP" in it
20:32:47 <AnMaster> not sure
20:32:53 <AnMaster> noscript blocked it
20:32:56 <ais523> AnMaster: same here
20:33:02 <ais523> you can look at the source if you really want to
20:33:09 <ais523> it checks a variable to see if the world's ended
20:33:17 <oklopol> :)
20:33:35 <ais523> but I don't see why anyone would go to the trouble of registering the domain in the first place
20:33:45 <oklopol> as a joke?
20:33:50 <oklopol> also, www.vjn.fi/domains
20:33:56 <olsner> I see the fun of it
20:34:15 <AnMaster> * potar has quit (K-lined)
20:34:15 <AnMaster> hah
20:34:31 <ais523> what exactly is K-lining?
20:34:42 <oklopol> i have a friend who got a k-line on freenode by explicitly asking for one for about a week
20:34:57 <ais523> being killed by the server admins as opposed to being kickbanned from a channel?
20:35:08 <ais523> oklopol: why?
20:35:14 <AnMaster> ais523, same as g-line
20:35:25 <AnMaster> ais523, like a ban from the whole network
20:35:27 <ais523> AnMaster: that isn't very helpful as I don't know what either is
20:35:29 <AnMaster> based on ip
20:35:29 <ais523> ah
20:35:37 <AnMaster> k-line on freenode is whole network
20:35:46 <AnMaster> on traditional networks k-line was server-local
20:35:50 <AnMaster> and g-line global
20:35:57 <ais523> must do something pretty bad to annoy the opers like that
20:36:22 <oklopol> in quakenet, you just have to connect 5 times from the same ip
20:36:31 <AnMaster> ais523, a staffer joined just before, I guess he (yes I know that staffer is a he) banned after he saw the spamming
20:36:43 <ais523> ah, ok
20:36:52 <ais523> I thought channel kickbans were more common than server k-lines though
20:37:05 <oklopol> probably on multiple channels spamming the channel name
20:37:12 <ais523> esoteric
20:37:18 <oklopol> esoteric
20:37:19 * AnMaster slaps ais523
20:37:23 <ais523> sorry...
20:37:41 <AnMaster> anyway
20:37:41 * ais523 wonders how long an ELIZAbot would last in a high-traffic channel if it tried to reply to everyone
20:37:45 <AnMaster> probably that
20:38:07 <oklopol> heh, i just realized the domains page says "volimo's homepage", i smell copy paste
20:38:15 <AnMaster> ais523, sendq or recvq exceeded? or if it rate limited itself, would lag several hours
20:38:52 <ais523> AnMaster: I seriously doubt it would overflow the sendq, if it did then the same would happen to everyone else in the channel
20:38:57 <ais523> as they're all receiving the same things
20:39:24 <AnMaster> ais523, err I just didn't remember if it was send/recv from client or server point of view they were named after
20:39:47 <ais523> server point of view
20:39:58 <ais523> I know, I did /who on Freenode once by mistake
20:40:14 <ais523> it managed several screenfuls of channels before killing me, though
20:41:23 <oklopol> talking about excess floods?
20:41:28 <ais523> oklopol: yes
20:41:43 <ais523> in particular, what would happen if you put an ELIZAbot in, say, #ubuntu, which replied to every message
20:42:01 <oklopol> well
20:42:08 <oklopol> with the current traffic, probably nothing
20:42:21 <ais523> ok, say it's the release day of Intrepid
20:42:26 <ais523> to guarantee high traffic
20:42:33 <olsner> my stack layout seems quite insane here, &c isn't even *near* the stack pointer
20:42:35 <oklopol> in quakenet, a full message can be sent every 7 seconds without excess flood
20:42:41 <oklopol> *6 seconds
20:42:49 <ais523> olsner: that could explain why it isn't working, to some extent
20:43:00 <oklopol> 5 second delay gives may get you killed.
20:43:21 <oklopol> freenode lets you send a bit faster, since this is a relatively small network
20:43:28 <oklopol> well, that's no reason, more like a heuristic
20:44:23 <oklopol> you could send at least 3 responses to everything on #ubuntu without getting excess flood killed
20:44:36 <ais523> ok, so not a floodkill
20:44:49 <ais523> how long do you think it would take for the people there to get annoyed and find a chanop and kill the bot?
20:44:56 <oklopol> about a minute :)
20:45:39 <ais523> "Are you a bot?" "Would you like me to be a bot?2
20:45:43 <ais523> s/2$/"/
20:45:51 <ais523> that would make it obvious pretty quickly, I imagine
20:46:03 <oklopol> when i asked for a mips expert, where you here, ais523
20:46:14 <ais523> I don't think so, but I'm not a mips expert
20:46:19 <oklopol> okay
20:46:22 <ais523> if I was I would have said GregorR was and I wasn't
20:46:34 <ais523> at least GregorR reimplemented mips in JS, which has got to be worth something
20:46:35 <oklopol> yeah that's the redirection i was given
20:46:55 <oklopol> but GregorR is not active, so i had to recheck.
20:48:02 <oklopol> i do know mips quite well now, read the most of computer organization and design last week, and it introduces mips pretty thoroughly
20:48:07 <olsner> hmm, even with the use of the proper register offsets into the jmp_buf (which are 3, 4 and 5 for bp, sp, ip), and adding an arbitrary offset to &c, it still seems to go haywire
20:48:30 <oklopol> so i don't actually need any help, i guess i'm just asking out of interest
20:48:38 <tusho> ais523:
20:48:44 <tusho> it's a parody of isitchristmas.com
20:48:50 <ais523> ah, I didn't know that
20:48:51 <tusho> which has parodies such as isxkcdshittytoday.com
20:49:00 <tusho> and isbarackobamaamuslim.com
20:49:01 <tusho> etc
20:49:04 <ais523> but why is a website needed to tell people if it's christmas?
20:49:08 <tusho> ais523: it's funny
20:49:10 <tusho> it's a joke
20:49:24 <tusho> ais523: it's absurd, yet funny because it's so overblown
20:49:27 <tusho> ais523: all these have rss feeds
20:49:29 <tusho> if you look
20:49:44 <ais523> tusho: how often do they get new entries? Once a year?
20:49:48 <tusho> ais523: no
20:49:48 <tusho> every day
20:50:00 <tusho> for isitchristmas, NO or YES
20:50:02 <oklopol> isxkcdshittytoday says yes :o
20:50:02 <ais523> well, twice a year for isitchristmas
20:50:05 <tusho> for isxkcdshittytoday.com always YES
20:50:05 <oklopol> that's just wrong
20:50:14 <tusho> http://hasthelargehadroncolliderdestroyedtheworldyet.com/ - well you can guess
20:50:25 <tusho> http://hasthelhcdestroyedtheworld.com/ <-- someone else got the idea
20:50:32 <tusho> er
20:50:34 <tusho> wrong one
20:50:39 <tusho> here
20:50:40 <tusho> http://www.hasthelhcdestroyedtheearth.com/
20:50:52 <ais523> two of them...
20:51:03 * ais523 almost faints in horror at the idiocy of the Internet
20:51:07 <tusho> ais523: idiocy?
20:51:09 <tusho> hilarity
20:51:09 <ais523> actually, I genuinely feel a bit sick now
20:51:22 <oklopol> :)
20:51:26 <tusho> what's wrong with you, generally you love pointless ideas carried out to a huge maximum
20:51:29 <tusho> that is, er, intercal
20:51:41 <ais523> tusho: they have to be interesting pointless ideas carried out to a huge maximum
20:51:50 <tusho> ais523: an rss feed is a pretty huge maximum
20:52:03 <tusho> I also like http://notalwaysblue.com/ (javascript required).
20:52:07 <tusho> It is not always blue.
20:52:08 <ais523> also, doing it more than once is not funny
20:52:14 <tusho> ais523: it's not one person
20:52:16 <ais523> the original is possibly a good idea
20:52:17 <AnMaster> ais523, why exactly is INTERCAL not LR(N)?
20:52:20 <tusho> they're all different people
20:52:25 <ais523> AnMaster: I wrote an essay about it
20:52:27 <ais523> let me link you to it
20:53:07 <AnMaster> ais523, thanks
20:53:16 <ais523> http://code.eso-std.org/c-intercal/pit/tests/arrtest.doc
20:53:20 <ais523> that's actually a text file
20:53:26 <ais523> the extension is misleading the web server for some reason
20:53:27 <tusho> i wanna register http://alwaysblue.com/
20:53:29 <tusho> but its squatted
20:53:37 <tusho> ais523: you know exactly the reason
20:53:38 <tusho> :P
20:54:18 <ais523> tusho: that site is not even usually blue
20:54:21 <ais523> IMO it ought to be
20:54:27 <tusho> ais523: no, that's the joke
20:54:30 <tusho> it focuses on the blue for no reason
20:54:33 <tusho> everything has a chance
20:54:40 <tusho> but it is 'not always blue'
20:54:49 <ais523> is it ever blue?
20:54:58 <ais523> I didn't check the list of colours quickly enough
20:54:58 <oklopol> yes
20:55:02 <tusho> yes
20:55:28 <ais523> AnMaster: anyway, quick summary:
20:55:35 <ais523> DO .1 <- ,3SUB",2SUB.1".2 (reduce required)
20:55:41 <ais523> DO .1 <- ,3SUB",2SUB.1".2~.3"".4 (shift required))
20:55:59 <ais523> and it's possible to put an arbitrary expression in place of .3
20:56:04 <AnMaster> ah I see
20:56:13 <ais523> however, doing this sort of thing is actually against the spec
20:56:21 <AnMaster> it is?
20:56:24 <ais523> which basically says "you mustn't do anything which makes the language not LR(1)"
20:56:36 <ais523> that amused me when I read it...
20:56:59 <AnMaster> DO .1 <- ,3SUB",2SUB.1".2~.3"".4 (shift required))
20:57:01 <AnMaster> um
20:57:03 <AnMaster> two )?
20:57:09 <AnMaster> oh wait
20:57:11 <AnMaster> now I see
20:57:15 <ais523> AnMaster: bad copy-and-paste, sorry
20:57:19 <AnMaster> ais523, not at all
20:57:25 <AnMaster> there is an ( the line above
20:57:28 <AnMaster> which it matches
20:57:33 <ais523> yes, but I didn't copy the line above
20:57:34 <AnMaster> (It could be the start of this statement:
20:57:34 <AnMaster>
20:57:34 <AnMaster> DO .1 <- ,3SUB",2SUB.1".2~.3"".4 (shift required))
20:57:38 <AnMaster> they match
20:57:52 <ais523> it matches in the orginal but not my paste here, which is why I said "bad copy and paste"
20:58:10 <AnMaster> ais523, I meant the original
20:58:17 <ais523> ah, ok
20:58:17 <AnMaster> which I misread
20:58:41 <AnMaster> ais523, apart from this, what prevents it from being LALR(1)?
20:58:53 <ais523> nothing, it's just the array syntax
20:58:56 <ais523> everything else is fin
20:58:59 <ais523> s/$/e/
20:59:13 <AnMaster> <ais523> which basically says "you mustn't do anything which makes the language not LR(1)" <-- didn't that mean LALR then?
20:59:24 <ais523> could mean either really
20:59:32 <ais523> they express the restriction in very vague terms
20:59:34 <AnMaster> well iirc LALR is simpler
20:59:43 <olsner> hmm, LALR is a subset of LR, right?
20:59:48 <ais523> it's pretty much impossible to know what it means until you try to implement INTERCAL yourself, or have someone explain it to you...
21:00:30 <AnMaster> ais523, how can " be both "sparks" and "ears"?
21:00:39 <AnMaster> err spark* and ears
21:00:53 <ais523> " is ears, ' is spark
21:00:59 <AnMaster> er
21:01:05 <ais523> there is no requirement to use one or the other except in the case of array indexing
21:01:18 <AnMaster> so how is there a conflict if ' is spark
21:01:22 <ais523> when you have to alternate to avoid that little bit of parsing trickiness
21:01:24 <AnMaster> then you could just see if it was ' or "
21:01:38 <ais523> AnMaster: the point is that you have to choose either ' or " to avoid the conflict
21:01:46 <ais523> whereas in most expressions you can just use " everywhere
21:01:59 <AnMaster> they have the same meaning?
21:02:00 <ais523> ".1~".2~".3~.4""" is a perfectly legal INTERCAL expression
21:02:02 <ais523> AnMaster: yep
21:02:06 <AnMaster> and that is?
21:02:16 <AnMaster> I assume it isn't quote
21:02:20 <ais523> AnMaster: it's parens
21:02:27 <AnMaster> hm ok
21:02:33 <ais523> (.1~(.2~(.3~.4)))
21:02:41 <AnMaster> and . and ~ are?
21:02:44 <ais523> INTERCAL parens are nondirectional, thus causing the current notational confusion
21:02:55 <ais523> . is a sigil to denote a 16-bit variable, like $ in Perl
21:03:02 <ais523> and ~ is the select operator, which is a pain to explain
21:03:17 <Deewiant> nondirectional? ( and ) are interchangeable?
21:03:28 <ais523> Deewiant: they're both " in INTERCAL, or alternatively '
21:03:30 <AnMaster> ".1~".2~".3~.4""" <-- if they are like ( and ), there is no way you can handle that with one symbol lookahead
21:03:33 <ais523> " can only match " an ' can only match '
21:03:34 <Deewiant> heh, amusing
21:03:46 <ais523> AnMaster: there is, the trick is to see whether there's an operator or number immediately before them
21:03:47 <AnMaster> because you wouldn't know if it was a closing on a opening one on a new level
21:03:57 <AnMaster> ais523, oh?
21:04:02 <AnMaster> can't you close then?
21:04:02 <ais523> that doesn't work in arrays though because they can have multiple expressions in a row
21:04:11 <Deewiant> AnMaster: 3( is invalid and +) is invalid, I guess
21:04:16 <AnMaster> ah
21:04:21 <ais523> that's what I was referring to
21:04:31 <AnMaster> Deewiant, except intercal doesn't have addition iirc
21:04:36 <AnMaster> not like we define it
21:04:39 <ais523> yep, five operators
21:04:42 -!- Corun has joined.
21:04:44 <ais523> none of which are particularly standard
21:04:47 <Deewiant> whatever, you know what I meant
21:04:53 <AnMaster> ais523, select being the worst one?
21:05:01 <ais523> AnMaster: select is probably the hardest to explain
21:05:04 <ais523> it's one of the most useful though
21:05:06 <AnMaster> and the other ones are?
21:05:11 <ais523> and the only one known to have been invented independently
21:05:20 <ais523> well, $ is mingle, that alternates bits in its arguments
21:05:44 <AnMaster> ais523, iirc I read that select matched some operator on some other existing system though it was unknown by the intercal inventors
21:05:53 <AnMaster> sounds familiar
21:06:02 <ais523> e.g. #5$#2 is 101$10 which is 100110 which is 38
21:06:10 <ais523> AnMaster: yes, that's from the Wikipedia article
21:06:13 <AnMaster> ais523, err,,, bitwise not?
21:06:21 <AnMaster> or what are you saying?
21:06:33 <ais523> AnMaster: no, it takes two arguments
21:06:42 <AnMaster> bitwise xor?
21:06:50 <ais523> it takes the first bit of the first, then the first bit of the second, then the second bit of the first, then the second bit of the second, and so on
21:06:58 <ais523> until all the bits have been copied into a new number
21:07:00 <AnMaster> oh I see
21:07:05 <AnMaster> interleave them
21:07:07 <tusho> ais523: is that all?
21:07:07 <AnMaster> right
21:07:08 <tusho> that's trivial
21:07:20 <ais523> tusho: that's what $ does, and it isn't all that powerful
21:07:35 <AnMaster> and the other operators?
21:07:36 <ais523> then there are unary AND, OR, and XOR, which work on alternate bits of their arguments
21:07:41 <ais523> s/alternate/consecutive/
21:07:46 <AnMaster> ah
21:07:58 <ais523> so it's the first bit AND the second, the second AND the third, and so on
21:08:02 <AnMaster> ouch
21:08:13 <ais523> except that you have the last AND the first filling in the very top bit
21:08:26 <ais523> they're written & V ? in C-INTERCAL
21:08:29 <ais523> respectively
21:08:37 <ais523> I'll try to explain select anyway, it's probably the most useful
21:08:45 <tusho> ais523: wait, isn't $ select
21:08:47 <tusho> oh
21:08:48 <tusho> mingle
21:08:49 <ais523> tusho: $ is mingle
21:08:52 <ais523> ~ is select
21:08:57 <tusho> ah, so select is the complex useful one
21:09:02 <tusho> well, I'll implement $
21:09:11 <AnMaster> tusho, haha
21:09:23 <AnMaster> ais523, well I seen a diagram which wasn't useful at all
21:09:33 <ais523> AnMaster: that diagram's a joke AFAICT
21:10:02 <ais523> anyway, to calculate .1 ~ .2, you work out the bitwise-and of .1 and .2, then stable-sort the bits of the result by the bits of .2
21:10:02 <AnMaster> "The program arrtest.i will not actually run, but it will compile as far as degenerating C code" <-- "degenerating"?
21:10:24 <ais523> AnMaster: INTERCALese for "generate", they tend to mess around with words like that if it doesn't cost too many extra characters
21:10:48 <AnMaster> stable-sort the bits of the result by the bits of the second operand.... um wait what?
21:10:58 <AnMaster> you mean all 0 first, then all 1?
21:11:01 <ais523> that's it
21:11:06 <tusho> ais523: hmm, you can't implement mingle without knowing how many bits in an int, right?
21:11:16 <ais523> tusho: correct, but it's always 16 in INTERCAL
21:11:23 <AnMaster> tusho, sizeof(int) * CHAT_BIT in C
21:11:24 <ais523> well, 16 before the mingle, 32 afterwards
21:11:25 <tusho> alright, i'll just require that then
21:11:38 <AnMaster> tusho, what are you writing this for?
21:11:41 <tusho> AnMaster: c
21:11:48 <ais523> INTERCAL has both 16- and 32-bit datatypes but you aren't allowed to mingle 32-bit values
21:11:53 <AnMaster> hm
21:11:59 <AnMaster> tusho, what program I mean
21:12:02 <AnMaster> why do you need it
21:12:13 <tusho> AnMaster: i don't
21:12:43 <AnMaster> ais523, what sorting algorithm does ick use for select?
21:13:02 <AnMaster> I assume some custom one would actually be fastest here
21:13:13 <ais523> AnMaster: I think it's custom
21:13:26 <ais523> I can look it up, the implementation of the forward operators is one of the bits I never touched though
21:13:38 <AnMaster> could be O(n) with O(2n) for memory
21:13:52 <AnMaster> wait maybe not
21:14:02 <AnMaster> could be if one was reversed stable sort
21:14:10 <AnMaster> so you filled in from each end
21:14:24 <ais523> AnMaster: well the only possible digits in binary are 0 and 1
21:14:28 <ais523> that makes the sorting a lot faster
21:14:32 <ais523> also, 0 AND anything is 0
21:14:36 <AnMaster> yep
21:14:37 <ais523> so that can also be used to optimise the result
21:15:33 <AnMaster> is the source for the original intercal compiler around any more?
21:15:50 <ais523> AnMaster: OK, I checked, basically it just scans the second argument looking for 1s, and copies corresponding values from the first argument to the result
21:15:54 <ais523> pretty simple, really
21:16:10 <ais523> oh, except it saves time by bitshifting the arguments around on occasion
21:16:19 <ais523> AnMaster: not as far as I know
21:16:23 <AnMaster> ais523, ah so O(n) and O(2n) for memory?
21:16:32 <ais523> however, there was an interview with the original creator
21:16:32 <AnMaster> O(n) for complexity I mean
21:16:36 <AnMaster> where n is number of bits
21:16:42 <ais523> AnMaster: yes
21:16:52 <ais523> anyway it turned out that they didn't implement integers as integers at all
21:17:02 <ais523> they implemented them as strings holding the binary representation of the number
21:17:06 <ais523> and manipulated them with regexen
21:17:07 <AnMaster> yeargh
21:17:13 <tusho> AnMaster: it was in SNOBOL, iirc
21:17:16 <tusho> so that would have been natural
21:17:18 <AnMaster> ah hm
21:17:20 <AnMaster> ok
21:17:24 <ais523> tusho: SPITBOL, a dialect of SNOBOL, but yes
21:17:36 <AnMaster> still that would have been slow, and very very slow on those old computers
21:17:42 <ais523> it was
21:17:58 <tusho> AnMaster: duh
21:18:01 <tusho> why does it matter
21:18:48 <AnMaster> tusho, why do you care?
21:19:00 <tusho> AnMaster: because i really don't get why you're bothered by stuff like that
21:19:06 <tusho> who cares if intercal programs run fast?
21:19:09 <tusho> why is it an issue?
21:19:14 <AnMaster> I didn't say it was an issue
21:19:24 <ais523> tusho: actually part of the charm of C-INTERCAL is trying to get INTERCAL to run fast
21:19:36 <AnMaster> there you go
21:19:44 <tusho> ais523: but nobody would fault it if it failed
21:19:52 <ais523> well, it does fail to some extent
21:20:00 <ais523> but it's a lot faster than CLC-INTERCAL
21:20:04 <ais523> and probably a bit faster than J-INTERCAL
21:21:06 <AnMaster> ais523, does ick use SSA internally or?
21:21:19 <ais523> AnMaster: no, it maps each INTERCAL variable to a C variable
21:21:28 <AnMaster> bbl, emerg
21:27:47 <AnMaster> back
21:28:17 <AnMaster> ais523, what about other stuff, common sub-expression elimination and such?
21:28:23 <ais523> AnMaster: when you find out how bad INTERCAL control flow is normally, you'll see why
21:28:33 <AnMaster> ais523, oh hm?
21:28:44 <ais523> anyway, the sort of optimisations C-INTERCAL do are mostly manipulating the INTERCAL to make it more C-like
21:28:50 <AnMaster> ah
21:28:57 <ais523> there's some CSE involved, but normally that can be left to the C compiler when the code's C-like enough
21:29:33 <AnMaster> CSE meaning?
21:29:40 <ais523> common subexpression elimination
21:29:43 <AnMaster> ah right
21:29:55 -!- comexk has joined.
21:30:06 <AnMaster> ais523, ever thought about compiling to native code?
21:30:19 <ais523> AnMaster: a bit, if I did I'd do it as a gcc frontend
21:30:26 <ais523> but it works well compiling to C
21:30:28 <AnMaster> ais523, not llvm frontend?
21:31:06 <ais523> AnMaster: the intermediate formats used by C-INTERCAL and by GCC are pretty similar
21:31:50 <oklopol> ais523: i may have killed you

21:31:56 <tusho> Thought:

21:32:01 <tusho> What if the FSF move offices?
21:32:07 <tusho> Won't they be violating the GPL or something?
21:32:16 <oklopol> ais523: was watching death note, and decided to try out whether notepad has the same power
21:32:25 <AnMaster> tusho, didn't they at some point?
21:32:30 <ais523> tusho: it would certainly make for a good Slashdot story
21:32:36 <oklopol> you were the only one on #esoteric the name and face of whose i could immediately recall
21:32:41 <ais523> the GPL is no-derivs so we couldn't even change it
21:32:49 <ais523> oklopol: I'm still alive I think
21:32:54 <comexk> 40 seconds \o/
21:32:59 <tusho> i believe death note has a time limit thing
21:33:01 <oklopol> hmm
21:33:02 <tusho> 24 hours or something?
21:33:04 <tusho> haven't actually watched it
21:33:07 <oklopol> you should've died already
21:33:08 <oklopol> oaky
21:33:08 <Deewiant> 30 seconds IIRC
21:33:10 <oklopol> *okay
21:33:17 <Deewiant> I haven't watched it either, read it though
21:33:17 <oklopol> i guess the microsoft dudes didn't add tat feature
21:33:19 <tusho> creepy that oklopol knows ais523's face by heart, though
21:33:19 <oklopol> *that
21:33:19 <AnMaster> death note is?
21:33:20 <tusho> :D
21:33:26 <oklopol> 40 seconds in the tv series
21:33:26 <tusho> AnMaster: manga/anime thing.
21:33:28 <Deewiant> AnMaster: manga/anime/live-action movie
21:33:32 <AnMaster> ais523, tusho: I seen another address in older copies of GPL with different address
21:33:36 <oklopol> *anime yeah
21:33:37 <AnMaster> ah ok
21:33:44 <ais523> AnMaster: oh dear
21:33:46 * ais523 is amused
21:33:50 <Deewiant> oklopol: I wonder why they always change stuff like that
21:33:51 <AnMaster> ais523, forwarding I assume
21:33:54 <Deewiant> like "over 9000"
21:33:57 <oklopol> tusho: i know yours too, but ais523's nick was the one i saw first
21:33:57 <Deewiant> it's 8000 in the manga
21:34:04 <tusho> Deewiant: it's OVER 8000
21:34:06 <Deewiant> or sorry
21:34:06 <tusho> haha
21:34:07 <tusho> i like that
21:34:09 <Deewiant> it's 8000 in the japanese
21:34:12 <tusho> oklopol: creepier
21:34:12 <tusho> :D
21:34:13 <Deewiant> it's 9000 in the english dub
21:34:14 <comexk> well
21:34:15 <oklopol> Deewiant: in an anime the time actually *matters*
21:34:18 <Deewiant> in the manga it's not even said
21:34:24 <comexk> in the full version of even the english, he says "it's over 8000... over nine" to himself
21:34:25 <tusho> hmm. i bet apple added death note functionality to TextEdit, since they rock so much
21:34:30 <Deewiant> oklopol: it's not like it's accurate anyway
21:34:33 <AnMaster> anyway you are making no sense
21:34:34 <oklopol> true
21:34:43 <oklopol> there are a lot of inconsistencies
21:34:44 <AnMaster> I guess that is due to not watching manga or anime
21:34:48 <AnMaster> not my style
21:34:50 <tusho> oklopol: you may die in 30 seconds of choking on your computer
21:34:57 <ais523> tusho: TextEdit is one of the few applications that can actually open OOXML
21:35:05 <ais523> however it does so by just extracting the text, I think
21:35:16 <comexk> don't you just have to unzip it like odt
21:35:21 <comexk> also, textmate
21:35:30 <oklopol> death note is the only anime i've watched
21:35:31 <tusho> comexk: i use textmate :p
21:35:39 <comexk> I don't
21:35:41 <comexk> I cracked it once though
21:35:43 <comexk> but it costs money
21:35:46 <oklopol> i've tried to watch a few other, but it's impossible
21:35:48 <tusho> but, i assume the death notey code kind of has high licensing fees.
21:35:50 <oklopol> *oters
21:35:50 <oklopol> *
21:35:53 <oklopol> *others
21:35:56 <tusho> so i doubt the textmate dev would have it
21:35:57 <comexk> but it's nice to know how to use a disassembler and be able to crack your own software
21:36:03 <tusho> apple probably do which is why i tried textedit
21:36:08 <Deewiant> oklopol: impossible? :-P
21:36:11 <tusho> oklopol is actually dead now
21:36:16 <tusho> if he says anything its just what he said before death
21:36:19 <tusho> he has like a 5 year lag
21:36:37 <Deewiant> that's fine as long as the responses are topical
21:36:42 <tusho> just so that when he is talking about his death
21:36:45 <tusho> and pleading for help
21:36:54 <tusho> and we all call up the emergency services
21:36:58 <tusho> we learn that he has been dead for 5 years
21:37:22 <oklopol> Deewiant: impossible, they simply tend to suck
21:37:41 <oklopol> well okay, lucky star was awesome :)
21:37:47 <oklopol> but i haven't dl'd that yet
21:37:57 <tusho> oklopol: how are you talking about things from the future?
21:38:14 <tusho> it is late 2003 right now for your messages that we are getting
21:38:14 <oklopol> tusho: i'm a pythonist
21:38:26 <tusho> oklopol: from __future__ import anime?
21:38:30 <oklopol> import("__future__").socket
21:38:49 <comexk> fail
21:39:02 <oklopol> does it?
21:39:03 <Deewiant> oklopol: meh, you're just watching the wrong ones
21:39:05 * oklopol tests
21:39:34 <oklopol> comexk: true, sorry
21:39:37 <oklopol> __import__ of course
21:39:50 <oklopol> they both had __'s, so i naturally got confused
21:41:43 <tusho> wait a second
21:41:47 <tusho> comex in here?
21:41:49 <tusho> that's new
21:42:34 <AnMaster> old
21:42:35 <AnMaster> iirc
21:42:53 <comexk> I joined so I could see your mingle thingy
21:43:04 <ais523> comexk: e pasted it to me in a PM
21:43:10 <ais523> tusho: paste it in-channel!
21:43:18 <tusho> ah
21:43:19 <tusho> ok
21:43:23 <tusho> http://pastebin.ca/1203677
21:43:28 <tusho> is bugged, the last two expressions are messed
21:43:33 <tusho> need moar nummers in the *
21:43:36 <tusho> but yeah that's the basic idea
21:43:43 <tusho> slower than c-intercal's, but easy to understand
21:43:54 <AnMaster> tusho, nice one, and unreadable
21:44:01 <tusho> no, readable
21:44:06 <tusho> you just have to know what it's trying to do
21:44:12 <AnMaster> tusho, not on a 80 char wide terminal no
21:44:15 <AnMaster> it is unreadable then
21:44:16 <tusho> duh
21:44:21 <tusho> i could wrap it but i generated that code
21:44:29 <tusho> and that's not the point
21:44:36 <ais523> tusho: C-INTERCAL's mingle is beautifully readable
21:44:41 <ais523> if a bit non-obvious how it works
21:45:08 <tusho> well, that's the thing
21:45:14 <AnMaster> ais523, do you agree tusho' unrolled one is unreadable?
21:45:14 <tusho> mine is less readable structurally wise
21:45:17 <tusho> but is more obvious how it works
21:45:24 <tusho> AnMaster: c-intercal's is more unrolled
21:45:24 <ais523> AnMaster: yes, I agree with you
21:45:34 <tusho> if you just read the first few expressions
21:45:34 <AnMaster> he is obviously speed crazy since he unrolled the loop
21:45:38 <tusho> you get the idea of how it works
21:45:39 -!- optbot has set topic: the entire backlog of #esoteric: http://tunes.org/~nef/logs/esoteric | more ideas are swimming through my head than I can clearly keep track of; that generally means its night time for me. I'll have some more glypho fluff tomorrow though, to be sure!.
21:45:44 <tusho> AnMaster: no, that's stupid
21:45:58 <tusho> the point is you can look at the first few expressions and see the algorithm
21:46:04 <ais523> and C-INTERCAL's is a common-subexpression-eliminated version of mingle, which stores parts of the expressions in parts of the word
21:47:13 <AnMaster> tusho, if I had done that you would have said it was speed crazy and unreadable
21:47:18 <tusho> AnMaster: no i wouldn't have
21:47:26 <AnMaster> you are a hypocrite
21:47:27 <AnMaster> really
21:47:29 <tusho> no, i am not
21:47:35 <tusho> i do not judge code based on who wrote it
21:47:42 <tusho> it just so happens that yours is pretty consistent in its ugh-ness
21:47:43 <AnMaster> you do
21:48:02 <AnMaster> <tusho> no, readable <AnMaster> ais523, do you agree tusho' unrolled one is unreadable? <ais523> AnMaster: yes, I agree with you
21:48:04 <AnMaster> *shrug*
21:48:06 <AnMaster> two against one
21:48:12 <tusho> ot
21:48:15 <tusho> *it's not a fucking battle
21:48:25 <AnMaster> you seem to treat it that way normally
21:48:26 <tusho> i don't give a shit how many people think my code is readable, because it is and I am prepared to justify that
21:48:53 <tusho> and no, i don't know where you are getting the delusions but I have never cared what people think of your code, i attack it purely by myself and if other people agree that is irrelevant
21:48:55 <ais523> tusho: it's too wide for the screen and therefore can't be justified without word-wrapping, left-aligned is more useful for code anyway
21:49:09 <tusho> ais523: when I was hand-writing I aligned the two b and a expressions
21:49:15 <tusho> by putting the + at the end of the return on the first line
21:49:30 <ais523> tusho: I was avoiding the argument for the sake of a bad pun, sorry
21:49:39 <tusho> ah
21:49:41 <tusho> didn't see that pun
21:49:42 <tusho> ha
21:50:15 <AnMaster> hah indeed
21:57:40 <AnMaster> http://public.web.cern.ch/public/en/Science/Antimatter-en.html <-- *groan* at the pun at the end of that
