11:37:47 <Slereah> Maybe I should get the Linux shirt :o
11:37:50 <ais523> hi Slereah
11:37:59 <Slereah> Hi.
11:38:12 <Slereah> I wonder if it would be considered cheating in programming exams
11:38:20 <ais523> to do what?
11:38:58 <Slereah> A bunch of useful stuff on the penguin, apparently
11:40:11 <ais523> it's not clear enough to see what data's there
11:40:19 <ais523> but my guess is it's mostly POSIX shell commands
11:41:05 <Slereah> Yeah.
11:41:13 <Slereah> Which would be nice. I really suck at it.
11:43:27 <Slereah> Man. I really hate the online stuff that won't send you your password
11:43:33 <Slereah> It's always about generating a new one.
11:43:41 <ais523> Slereah: it doesn't know your password
11:43:41 <Slereah> Fuck it, I'll just write it down.
11:43:43 <ais523> for security reasons
11:43:52 <ais523> that's why it generates a new one
11:44:00 <Slereah> Yeah, but putting it on a post-it might also be bad security.
11:44:17 <ais523> the database will only store a hash of the password
11:44:23 <ais523> so the password can be checked, but not retrieved
11:44:25 <Slereah> But damn, that's what I'm gonna do
11:44:45 <Slereah> I'm tired of generating new passwords for the shit I almost never use
11:44:51 <Slereah> Like paypal or Steam
11:48:02 <Slereah> What I do love, though, is the current euro-dollar exchange rate :D
11:50:04 <Slereah> I feel richer than a lion if that lion was rich

14:15:00 * ais523 apologises for all the quit/join spam
14:15:12 <ais523> tusho: what's that?
14:15:12 <ais523> also I sent a ping to myself about 20 seconds ago and it hasn't returned yet, no idea if any of you can see this then

14:19:54 <ais523> my connection problems remind me of that but with the IRC connect sequence
14:19:56 <ais523> or possibly the way they sequence DNA
14:20:00 <tusho> heh
14:20:00 <ais523> stopping at a random point and seeing what the value is at that point
14:20:12 <ais523> also, half the time I manage to stay online long enough to see your paste

14:23:43 <tusho> ais523_: what do you want the version string to be
14:23:44 <ais523_> ais523: I like your quit message
14:23:46 -!- ais523_ has changed nick to ais523.
14:23:50 <ais523> nobody's going to see this line anyway, probably, so I may as well write whatever I like
14:23:54 <tusho> no
14:23:55 <tusho> i see it
14:24:02 <ais523> yay
14:24:08 <tusho> now pick a VERSION reply
14:24:09 <ais523> tusho: what is the version string in this context?
14:24:14 <tusho> CTCP VERSION reply
14:24:14 <ais523> oh
14:24:20 <ais523> make it a short esoprogram
14:24:25 <tusho> haha
14:24:29 <ais523> ,[[-].,] or something like that
14:24:32 <tusho> alright
14:24:36 <tusho> no wait
14:24:39 <tusho> how about 'netcat'
14:24:46 <tusho> people will think you're the fastest typer ever
14:24:46 <ais523> no, I don't like lying about that
14:24:51 <tusho> okay
14:24:55 <tusho> ,[[-].,] it is
14:25:08 <ais523> when people CTCP version me and get "netcat" 30 seconds later, it's because I replied with "netcat"!
14:25:26 <tusho> olol, it listens on 31337 by default
14:25:32 <ais523> heh
14:25:37 <tusho> you can tell this program was written by 31337 irc users in 1999
14:25:40 <ais523> I wonder how many other programs use that particular port?
14:25:46 <tusho> and loads.
14:26:12 <ais523> unfortunately port 523's a bit too low to be usable
14:26:19 <ais523> and 415523 is too high
14:26:34 <tusho> ais523: bouncer name?
14:26:40 <tusho> how about
14:26:51 <tusho> happy fluffy puppy irc bouncer
14:26:57 <ais523> I like that idea
14:27:02 <ais523> but put flourescent in there somewhere

14:38:13 <ais523> hopefully I'll be back later, and I'll use an entirely different connection then
14:38:19 <tusho> ais523_: tch
14:38:20 <ais523> also, self-ping time was 38 seconds just then
14:38:24 <tusho> i'll leave your password as puppy then,
14:38:34 <ais523> well, say it in the channel, will yo?
14:38:37 <ais523> you'll have to change it now
14:38:43 <tusho> doesn't help people actually impersonate

15:41:48 <tusho> and yes, you do
15:41:48 <ais523> because you have no way to know whether I'm online
15:41:53 <tusho> well
15:41:53 <tusho> yes i do
15:41:59 <ais523> how?
15:42:01 <tusho> it doesn't respond to ctcps when you're offline
15:42:03 <tusho> that's a feature apparently
15:42:06 <tusho> although i have no idea why...
15:42:09 <ais523> ah, ok
15:42:22 <ais523> presumably so you don't ping people and think they're online
15:42:45 * tusho nods
15:42:53 <tusho> hmm
15:43:01 <tusho> ais523: disconnect for a minute will you? Wanna test if it sets away.
15:44:17 <tusho> ais523: seems not
15:44:38 <ais523> could you get it to hide my IP on disconnect easily?
15:44:52 <tusho> ais523: hmm... i think so
15:44:53 <tusho> why?
15:45:02 <ais523> that way it would be an anonymising bouncer, as well as a connection-sustaining bouncer
15:45:09 <ais523> and if it's easy to anonymise you may as well
15:45:12 <ais523> (if it isn't I don't mind)
15:45:16 <tusho> ais523: yes, it is, a sec
15:45:39 <tusho> ais523: gonna disconnect the bouncer to add me as an admin so I can set that, you'll have an outage of a few minutes, OK?

16:08:27 <tusho> no

16:08:30 <tusho> i think
16:08:37 <Deewiant> veeery little
16:08:38 <ais523> well, I'll just have to learn it this afternoon, then
16:09:36 <tusho> ouch
16:09:42 -!- moozilla has joined.
16:09:45 <tusho> ais523: here's a general overview from what i know
16:10:25 <tusho> it's like Haskell, except it's strict, there aren't any typeclass thingies (floating point is +. instead of + - ugly things like that, because of it), it has OOP-style classes, and various other differences.
16:10:27 <tusho> also, it's fast.
16:10:28 <tusho> really fast.
16:10:37 <tusho> fast enough for system tools, i don't think an os would be much of a stretch
16:11:10 <ais523> that's pretty similar information to what I know about it
16:11:31 <tusho> ais523: http://www.ocaml-tutorial.org/?
16:11:34 <Deewiant> "like Haskell except it's strict" :-P
16:11:39 <Deewiant> it's not pure
16:11:48 <Deewiant> which means, to me, that it's very unlike Haskell.
16:11:49 <tusho> the guy who wrote that is a crazy ocaml programmer guy
16:11:50 <tusho> so.
16:11:53 <tusho> Deewiant: whatever
16:12:09 <Deewiant> tusho: and the same to you.
16:13:56 <ais523> tusho: on my OS, the programming tutorials are stored in the repos
16:13:59 <ais523> so I don't even need to use the Web
16:14:07 <tusho> ais523: ocaml-tutorial isn't an official one
16:14:13 <tusho> i tried the official one once, it kind of sucked
16:14:39 -!- Corun_ has joined.
16:16:09 <ais523> heh, w3m even works with the mouse
16:16:24 <tusho> Shocking.
16:16:28 <tusho> oh
16:16:30 <tusho> i thought you said without
16:16:30 <tusho> XD
16:16:39 <ais523> I'm used to using it without
16:16:46 <ais523> way better than most graphical browsers at keyboard use
16:20:28 <tusho> Meanwhile, pigs are now officially referred to as 'pre-bacon'.
16:20:54 <ais523> heh
16:21:04 <ais523> hmm... OCaml claim to have half the performance of C
16:21:10 <ais523> which is pretty impressive for a functional language
16:21:23 <ais523> I can believe it too, it's effectively decompiling the programs into the imperative equivalent wherever that makes sense
16:21:25 <tusho> yes
16:21:41 <tusho> http://shootout.alioth.debian.org/u32/benchmark.php?test=all&lang=all
16:21:46 <tusho> What beats OCaml:
16:21:53 <Deewiant> Haskell
16:21:55 <Deewiant> ;-)
16:21:57 <tusho> gcc, ats, g++, java, lisaac, ghc, fortran, lisp
16:22:00 <tusho> Deewiant: uh, no
16:22:01 <tusho> that is not haskell
16:22:06 <tusho> that is !GHC#
16:22:08 <tusho> !unsafeGHC#
16:22:32 <Deewiant> the situation in that regard is better on the 4-core side
16:22:41 <Deewiant> tusho: but, have you looked at ATS? it's much worse
16:22:46 <tusho> yes
16:22:49 <tusho> ATS appeared out of nowhere
16:22:50 <tusho> and made me lol
16:22:54 <Deewiant> it's full of C
16:23:02 <ais523> PHP's last on that list?
16:23:08 <ais523> maybe we should enter some esolangs
16:23:12 <tusho> it's full of crap
16:23:13 <ais523> and challenge the bottom of the scale
16:23:13 <tusho> that's what
16:23:17 <Deewiant> he doesn't take them
16:23:24 <tusho> ais523: ruby isn't even _on_ that list
16:23:25 <tusho> :-(
16:23:26 <Deewiant> ruby's not on the list, probably because it was too slow ;-P
16:23:36 <tusho> probably for the best
16:23:36 <ais523> ruby will be on the list eventually
16:23:37 <tusho> :P
16:23:42 <ais523> just the programs haven't finished running yet
16:23:44 <Deewiant> but you can still look at the old one which had a lot more langs
16:23:45 <Deewiant> http://shootout.alioth.debian.org/gp4/benchmark.php?test=all&lang=all
16:23:48 <tusho> ais523: oooh bur
16:23:49 <tusho> n
16:23:53 <Deewiant> and ruby is at the bottom of /that/ list.
16:23:58 <tusho> yeah, well
16:23:59 <tusho> ruby 2.0
16:23:59 <tusho> yarv
16:24:00 <tusho> yo
16:24:01 <tusho> ;o
16:24:02 <Deewiant> a bit over twice as slow ar php.
16:24:05 <Deewiant> s/ar/as/.
16:24:07 <ais523> actually, they said they aren't putting langs there with more than a couple of timeouts
16:24:08 <tusho> so, uh, in 2054...

16:24:13 <tusho> :-P
16:24:16 <ais523> maybe Ruby was timing out on a couple of the projects
16:25:05 <ais523> also, I reckon I could get way below either of the C implementations there using gcc-bf, once it's finished
16:25:28 <ais523> hmm... #esoteric is one of those places where doing badly at benchmarks is a sport
16:25:51 <ais523> maybe one of these days we'll get a hello world which takes over 24 hours to run
16:26:19 <Deewiant> the quad-core benchmarks, with all the unsafeGHC# entries set to a weight of 0: http://shootout.alioth.debian.org/u32q/benchmark.php?test=all&lang=all&xfullcpu=1&xmem=0&xloc=0&binarytrees=1&chameneosredux=1&fannkuch=0&fasta=1&knucleotide=0&mandelbrot=1&meteor=1&nbody=0&pidigits=1&regexdna=1&revcomp=0&spectralnorm=0&threadring=1&calc=calculate
16:26:25 <tusho> ais523: been done
16:26:26 <Deewiant> wow, that's some url
16:26:33 <tusho> by a person on everything2.com
16:26:35 <tusho> basically
16:26:40 <tusho> it had an md5 of the string hello world
16:26:43 <tusho> and it randomly generates strings
16:26:45 <tusho> and prints it out if it matches
16:26:50 <ais523> oh, that's cheating
16:26:50 <Deewiant> why md5
16:26:53 <ais523> I meant a genuine version
16:26:56 <tusho> Deewiant: cuz it was in 2000 or something
16:27:04 <ais523> maybe by chaining together esocompilers
16:27:05 <Deewiant> tusho: the md5 is still pointless
16:27:12 <Deewiant> just plain randomizing would be just as slow :-P
16:27:18 <ais523> also, is hugeurl.com down?
16:27:24 <Deewiant> I hope so
16:27:29 <ais523> pity
16:27:37 <Deewiant> http://hugeurl.wiggy.net/ exists
16:27:39 <ais523> although I can agree with Deewiant to some extent
16:29:45 <ais523> Google confirms that hugeurl.com used to exist
16:29:52 <ais523> nowadays it's a 403 though
16:31:49 <tusho> hmm
16:33:54 <ais523> yep, SKI doesn't work in OCaml, it must have decent typing
16:35:00 <Deewiant> oh sure, hindley-milner
16:35:44 * ais523 is always annoyed that combinators don't type properly
16:36:00 <ais523> well, not those ones, anyway
16:36:25 <Deewiant> although hmm, do you mean specifically Ix -> x, Kxy -> x, Sxyz -> xz(yz)?
16:36:29 <ais523> yes, those ones
16:36:36 <ais523> they type
16:36:37 <ais523> but sii doesn't
16:36:53 <ais523> as it requires the infinite type 'a -> 'a -> 'a -> ...
16:37:10 <Deewiant> yep
16:37:18 <ais523> btw the Haskell and OCaml interps I have give pretty different error messages for that situation, but both are useful
16:38:53 <Deewiant> I'm sure the fix-point combinator can be defined in ocaml somehow, though, so that's not such a big loss ;-)
16:39:56 <ais523> hmm... OCaml doesn't allow things to be defined in terms of themself, at least not variables
16:40:05 <ais523> let a = [1] @ a;; is an error
16:40:07 <Deewiant> you need 'let rec'
16:40:09 <Deewiant> IIRC
16:40:14 <ais523> ah, ofc
16:40:23 <Deewiant> well no, not 'ofc' :-P
16:40:32 <Deewiant> I think such is somewhat annoying
16:40:33 <ais523> as it doesn't work
16:40:38 <ais523> This kind of expression is not allowed as right-hand side of `let rec'
16:40:58 <Deewiant> shrug
16:41:27 <Deewiant> maybe it recognizes that that would loop infinitely?

16:50:32 <tusho> ais523: ah, OK
16:50:33 <tusho> also
16:50:36 <tusho> ephemist or ephemerist?
16:50:40 <tusho> which is correct
16:50:48 <ais523> I've never heard the first word
16:50:58 <ais523> but the second would presumably mean "someone who specialises in ephemera"
16:51:05 <ais523> which is a pretty strange meaning to be saying in the first place
16:51:18 -!- CO2Games has left (?).
16:51:21 <tusho> ephemerists are those who like ephemera and often like to preserve it

16:51:47 <tusho> i'm an ephemerist in that i absolutely hate things expiring so i try and preserve info as much as possible...

16:51:58 <tusho> not sure
16:52:22 <ais523> oklocop: it's to do with hardware synthesis
16:52:59 <tusho> ephemist gets basically no results

17:11:06 <ais523> which isn't really that accurate
17:11:09 <tusho> heh
17:11:33 <tusho> ais523: i mean
17:11:35 <tusho> the difference between
17:11:36 <tusho> you -> server
17:11:39 -!- Slereah has quit (Read error: 110 (Connection timed out)).
17:11:39 <tusho> and you -> bouncer -> server
17:11:50 <ais523> it depends on how approximately en route the bouncer is
17:11:54 * tusho nods
17:12:00 <tusho> ais523: of course, our pings will always be immediate
17:12:03 <ais523> if someone's been filling the Internet with duff routing information again, it may even be quicker
17:12:07 <tusho> since psyBNC will respond to them directly
17:12:10 <tusho> as we're on the same server
17:12:15 <ais523> ah, of course
17:12:28 <tusho> so no freenode involved there
17:12:37 <ais523> a
17:12:43 <ais523> s/.*//

17:26:22 <tusho> hi ais523
17:26:35 <tusho> hmm...
17:26:38 <tusho> the * glob ignores .files
17:27:01 <tusho> so "rm -rf ~/my-aretea/*" will work fine
17:27:10 <tusho> since all the important stuff is in a dot-directory
17:27:16 <tusho> even so, i'm uneasy actually doing that...
17:27:37 <ais523> you could use a [] glob to whitelist various first characters

17:27:46 <tusho> true
17:27:52 <ais523> ~/my-aretea/[a-zA-Z0-9]*

19:11:37 <optbot> fungot: there are two things it's good at
19:11:37 <fungot> optbot: not at all
19:11:38 <optbot> fungot: you can change it
19:11:38 <fungot> optbot: i was being sarcastic
19:11:39 <optbot> fungot: possibly
19:11:39 <fungot> optbot: yeah, that in perl multi dimensional arrays are flattened because it suited the author best at the moment
19:11:40 <optbot> fungot: GOOD - www. redirects to www.www
19:11:47 <tusho> optbot: fungot: You guys have the best conversations
19:11:48 <optbot> tusho: ok that's insane
19:11:48 <fungot> tusho: testing it, that is
19:11:55 <tusho> optbot: Heh!
19:11:55 <optbot> tusho: i'm sure there's foo-in-jvm for some useful values of foo
19:11:58 <tusho> ouch
19:12:01 <tusho> optbot: JVM for OS!
19:12:01 <optbot> tusho: anyway
19:12:06 <tusho> optbot: anyway. fungot your opinions?
19:12:06 <optbot> tusho: and flip the accept/reject states
19:12:06 <fungot> tusho: keymaker probably wanted a c version faster than list? because smalltalk has it?
19:12:13 <tusho> fungot: that makes no sense
19:12:13 <fungot> tusho: " calculus".
19:12:18 <tusho> "CALCULUS"
19:12:20 <ais523> actually I rather like the idea of a JVM OS
19:12:25 <tusho> ais523: been done
19:12:35 <tusho> http://www.jnode.org/
19:12:41 <ais523> except it should have a #esoteric twist
19:12:52 <ais523> such as be portable to a huge number of different windowing systems, despite being an OS
19:12:59 <tusho> hah
19:13:00 <ais523> as a sort of abstraction inversion
19:13:14 <ais523> it should try to model all sorts of low-level stuff but access it through high level Java stuff
19:13:20 <tusho> jnode is disturbingly useful looking:
19:13:21 <tusho> http://www.jnode.org/screenshots/jnode-0.2.7/5.png
19:13:24 <tusho> it runs swing and everything
19:13:36 <ais523> (the classic example is implementing threading constructs in ADA)
19:13:38 <oerjan> an inside-out software hierarchy!
19:14:02 <ais523> heh, on jnode presumably Swing and AWT would be the same
19:14:11 <ais523> because Swing /is/ the native windowing system...
19:14:21 -!- oc2k1 has joined.
19:14:33 <tusho> AWT is probably unimplemented
19:14:36 <tusho> or if not, mapped to swing
19:14:43 <ais523> mapped to Swing would be my guess
19:14:55 <ais523> whoops, someone new has joined the channel, and we're discussing Java
19:14:57 <ais523> this will never do!
19:15:15 <oerjan> is not _that_ new
19:15:21 <tusho> oc2k1 is not new
19:15:26 <tusho> few days
19:15:28 <ais523> <Uleibheist> Your comment is subject to review, and will normally be included below: the review is simply to exclude unacceptable language (such as Java).
19:15:32 <ais523> ah, I hadn't noriced
19:15:37 <tusho> ais523: where's that from? :-)
19:15:39 <ais523> also, I probably got that nick wrong
19:15:46 <ais523> it's Claudio Calvelli's IRC nick I think
19:15:50 <ais523> but I probably typoed it as it looks wrong
19:16:19 <ais523> and more specifically it's from the CLC-INTERCAL guestbook
19:17:45 <oerjan> what's the preferred GUI toolkit for INTERCAL?
19:18:09 <ais523> at a guess, GTK, or possibly Win32 API, as it interfaces most easily with C
19:18:13 <ais523> well, and Befunge
19:18:23 <ais523> but that doesn't have GUI toolkit bindings really
19:18:43 <oerjan> oh so INTERCAL has a good C interface?
19:18:46 <ais523> but AFAIK there are no real INTERCAL GUI programs
19:18:54 -!- sebbu2 has joined.
19:18:59 <ais523> oerjan: C-INTERCAL allows linking of INTERCAL programs with C programs
19:19:08 <oerjan> i C
19:19:12 <ais523> it's all very simple, you write COME FROMs and other INTERCAL-like flow commands in the C program
19:19:20 <ais523> and it Just Works
19:19:30 <ais523> well, if you follow the instructions, anyway
19:19:36 <ais523> which tell you not to do a huge list of things that could break it
19:19:43 <ais523> mostly because C doesn't really like cross-function gotos
19:20:01 <oerjan> heh
19:20:15 -!- Corun_ has joined.
19:20:21 <oc2k1> that would smash the stack....
19:20:35 <ais523> nope
19:20:40 <ais523> if you're interested, http://code.eso-std.org/c-intercal/src/ick_ec.h is the source
19:20:43 <ais523> and it doesn't smash the stack
19:20:57 -!- Corun_ has changed nick to Corun.
19:20:59 -!- olsner has joined.
19:21:03 <ais523> it longjmps out of as many functions as it can safely jump out of without losing data, then calls the function you're jumping into and gotos the relevant line
19:21:24 <ais523> all nice and transparent to the user, except it makes something of a hash out of all the variables on the stack
19:22:02 <tusho> http://code.eso-std.org/c-intercal/src/ick_ec.h is the kind of code I wish I could write so I could write all day
19:22:13 <ais523> it took ages
19:22:22 <ais523> that's one of the only pieces of code I think I ever pseudocoded beforehand
19:22:25 <ais523> to make sure it was right
19:22:57 <ais523> luckily it works great in a debugger so long as you set suffficiently many breakpoints and don't try to single-step past any of the longjmps
19:23:14 <ais523> basically when you encounter a longjmp, you hit c and hope you remembered to set a breakpoint on the other side
19:23:31 <ais523> the longjmps are in the associated .c file, though, not the .h
19:23:45 <ais523> the .c file handles the INTERCAL end of things, the .h handles the C end of things
19:23:59 * ais523 considers renaming ick_ec.h to ick_ec.i just to get the symmetry perfect

19:51:23 <tusho> in another unexpected turn, the project is still going well, and i managed to tweak a bit of it without the whole thing falling down just now
19:51:37 <tusho> i wonder when my brain was replaced...
19:52:03 <ais523> tusho: no, it's just that the laws of physics were repealed last week
19:52:08 <tusho> ah
19:52:10 <tusho> a scam, i suppose?
19:52:11 <ais523> some sort of scam involving a Fountain...
19:52:17 <oerjan> not repealed, amended
19:52:19 <tusho> i never liked fountains anyway
19:52:29 <oerjan> except for the strong force
19:52:40 <ais523> oerjan: they were fully repealed, but people conform to them anyway mostly due to custom
19:52:48 <oerjan> oh
19:53:08 <oerjan> hm, that's not actually a change. we always did that.
19:53:24 <ais523> going against them gets you some funny looks and a 3-in-20 chance of being hunted down by a pack of vigilante ninjas
19:54:01 <oerjan> the ninjas are not a problem, unless they disobey the laws too, which would be hypocritical.
19:54:29 <ais523> oerjan: they're ninjas, there's no way to tell if they disobey the laws or not
19:55:15 <oerjan> well even better, that means they'll be occupied hunting down each other
19:56:05 <ais523> that's why there's only a 3-in-20 chance
19:56:11 <oerjan> ah
19:57:20 -!- Slereah has joined.
19:57:32 <oerjan> anyway another trick is to only break the laws in such a way that it looks like they haven't been broken.
19:57:45 <oerjan> very useful
19:58:12 <ais523> given that this is the laws of physics we're talking about, couldn't you break the laws in such a way that they actually hadn't been broken?
19:59:00 <oerjan> changing the past is highly dangerous, as you should well know
19:59:38 <AnMaster> ais523, hi
19:59:44 <ais523> hi AnMaster
20:00:34 <oerjan> hemskt mycket hej
20:01:04 <tusho> sorry...
20:01:12 <tusho> my mac's fan went on full blas, it does that sometimes
20:01:16 <tusho> only stops when i restart
20:01:18 <tusho> a bit weird
20:01:22 <tusho> probably should get it checked out
20:01:25 <tusho> but yeah, didn't want it to catch fire
20:01:42 <oerjan> tusho: you will be surprised to know we didn't notice
20:01:49 <tusho> i know you didn't
20:01:53 <tusho> because of the bouncer
20:01:53 <ais523> I did
20:01:58 <tusho> ais523 did
20:02:01 <tusho> because -psyBNC told him.
20:02:05 <tusho> since he's on the same bouncer
20:02:20 <oerjan> psychic powers now... let me call those ninjas
20:02:20 <ais523> tusho's motivation for configuring a system which makes us both appear to be always online, except to each other, is clearly to confuse #esoteric
20:02:46 <tusho> its easy to figure out if we're online
20:02:47 <tusho> ping them
20:03:16 <tusho> also
20:03:22 <tusho> i saw everything that happened when i was gone
20:03:22 <ais523> oh, and happy Australian Mailman Reminders Day, everyone!
20:03:26 <tusho> since my bouncer told me about it
20:03:29 <oerjan> hah, you're only doing it to ESCAPE MY MIGHTY FLYSWATTER
20:03:37 <tusho> ais523: ha, last time i said that AnMaster yelled at me because i just made it up
20:03:48 <tusho> and i told him that it was simple, i linked him to mailman reminder day definitions
20:03:49 <ais523> it's become something of a tradition, though, I think
20:03:55 <oklocop> tusho: can i be on your bouncer too
20:03:56 <tusho> and then said it was the ones from australia
20:04:03 <tusho> oklocop: sure.
20:04:09 <oklocop> i'm not sure i want to, but i want to know whether i have the opportunity!

20:04:29 <tusho> when you reconnect
20:04:33 <tusho> it spews to you all the lines that you missed
20:04:34 <oklopod> yes i've licked bouncers before
20:04:35 <tusho> while you were gone
20:04:35 <ais523> first hit: http://mail.python.org/pipermail/mailman-developers/2004-April/016708.html
20:04:42 <tusho> oklopod: yes but most don't do the latter
20:04:47 <oklopod> indeed they don't
20:04:49 <tusho> ais523: yes, but AnMaster took issue with the 'australian' modifier
20:04:52 <oklopod> but they all should
20:04:53 <tusho> :-P
20:04:55 <ais523> see, the Python mailing lists had us beaten by years
20:05:04 <ais523> tusho: well it happens 12 hours earlier in Australia
20:05:07 <tusho> oklopod: unfortunately since it just slams it back at you, they all are from the same timestamp
20:05:09 <ais523> and a day before for us here in the UK
20:05:10 <tusho> but who cares about timestamps
20:05:26 <ais523> tusho: get it to send you the messages retroactively?
20:05:38 <tusho> ais523: ha
20:05:44 <tusho> best would be to have it a specific protocol
20:05:46 <tusho> instead of just an irc server
20:05:51 <tusho> so that it can send the right time

20:08:41 <tusho> way
20:08:53 <oerjan> ah
20:09:06 <tusho> no
20:09:07 <tusho> its just how i use it

20:09:29 <ais523> wait until I exit

20:15:09 <tusho> yes
20:17:31 <olsner> who would do something as crazy as setting their IRC client to parse m4?
20:18:20 <oerjan> olsner: the answer should be obvious
20:18:20 <ais523> olsner: wrong channel
20:18:36 <fizzie> You can also opt to set your brain to parse m4.
20:18:49 <ais523> fizzie: that isn't physically possible, have you /seen/ m4?
20:19:09 <fizzie> Only the little bit I've run across in autoconfy things.
20:19:10 <olsner> fizzie: hmm, that'd explain alot of the behaviour of people in this channel
20:19:31 <oerjan> And thus, olsner was enlightened.
20:19:32 <olsner> oklo-something has probably done that
20:19:58 <ais523> actually, I imagine that oklopod could quite possibly mentally calculate m4
20:20:17 <ais523> after all, oklopod is programming-the-noun
20:20:18 * oerjan suddenly has an idea for an #esoteric slogan
20:20:24 <ais523> oerjan: go on
20:20:25 <tusho> olsner: sez the thue-in-mod_rewrite
20:20:29 <oerjan> "Bringing madness to a planet near you"
20:20:40 <ais523> oerjan: I like that, actually
20:20:40 <olsner> ais523: he'd recite an m4 implementation in BF, more likely
20:20:41 <Mony> bye
20:20:42 <ais523> which planet?
20:20:45 <ais523> bye Mony
20:20:47 <tusho> also, oklopod could trivially do it, probably

20:21:12 <olsner> tusho: bah, that was trivial once I got my compiler done
20:21:14 <oerjan> we have not quite decided that yet
20:22:21 <olsner> curiously though, sed turned out to be the language of choice for writing the compiler
20:22:48 <oerjan> oh no, oklopod has become one of the pod people
20:23:18 <oerjan> ais523: it's a cross between Monet and money
20:24:09 <ais523> olsner: I have a Thue-without-certain-punctuation-marks-to-sed compiler written in sed somewhere
20:25:17 <oklopod> i don't wanna dissappoint you, but i don't know what m4 is.
20:25:30 <oklopod> unless it's like an airplane or something.
20:25:46 <ais523> oklopod: it's a programming language which would be an esolang if less widespread
20:25:54 <oklopod> oh
20:25:54 <oerjan> ais523: let's just say it's probably a planet _very_ near you
20:25:59 <oklopod> then i think i've heard about i
20:26:00 <oklopod> t
20:26:21 <oklopod> i'll look
20:26:22 <oklopod> later
20:26:23 <oklopod> today
20:26:24 <ais523> oklopod: try running the m4 command on your computer

20:27:36 <ais523> oklopod: who you?

20:28:02 <ais523> I'm not very good at m4

20:28:25 <ais523> )Hello, dnl
20:28:28 <olsner> oklopod: it's the language you write configure.ac and sendmail.conf files in
20:28:42 <ais523> sendmail.conf is written in m4?
20:28:45 <ais523> that explains a lot
20:28:58 <olsner> well, no, one common package for *generating* sendmail configuration files is written in m4
20:29:07 <ais523> that also explains a lot
20:29:09 -!- Slereah has quit (Read error: 104 (Connection reset by peer)).
20:29:10 <olsner> the sendmail config format is worse... *much* worse
20:29:29 -!- Slereah has joined.
20:30:05 <tusho> yay, i have plugins working
20:30:11 <ais523> to think about m4, think of the C preprocessor
20:30:13 <ais523> except recursive
20:30:23 <ais523> so that after something was expanded, it checks for macros again
20:30:32 <ais523> then think about a crazy quoting scheme
20:30:38 <ais523> and commands which do illogical things
20:30:40 <ais523> and you get m4
20:31:17 <oc2k1> Idea: Modified brainfuck: [] is only a if construction and the code tape is an endless loop. Maybe it is also possible to remove the recursion of [] so only a single if(0)goto next if instructions remains...
20:31:18 <ais523> btw, m4 has built-in commands to change its own syntax, which people normally end up using
20:31:38 <ais523> oc2k1: I think that one's been had before
20:32:02 <tusho> oc2k1: Hm.
20:32:03 <ais523> but if you like, take a look at http://code.eso-std.org/c-intercal/pit/sort.i
20:32:03 <tusho> Is that TC?
20:32:09 <tusho> If you cycle the code.
20:32:14 <ais523> that's INTERCAL not Brainfuck
20:32:15 <tusho> cycling =
20:32:16 <ais523> but it's the same idea
20:32:26 <tusho> ,],[.
20:32:29 <tusho> would be an echo program
20:32:30 <ais523> nothing but nested computed ABSTAINs and a loop enclosing the program
20:32:32 <tusho> in a cyclic brainfuck
20:32:49 <oc2k1> ,. would be an echo program
20:32:54 <tusho> oc2k1: yeah
20:32:55 <tusho> but
20:32:56 <tusho> if you have
20:32:58 <tusho> ah
20:32:58 <tusho> right
20:32:59 <tusho> right
20:33:03 <tusho> oc2k1: you need nested loops
20:33:04 <tusho> in BF
20:33:06 <tusho> for tcness
20:33:12 <ais523> tusho: how nested?
20:33:16 <ais523> I'm actually wondering
20:33:18 <tusho> ais523: not sure
20:33:21 <oc2k1> [[....]]
20:33:25 <tusho> ais523: i think dbfi has 4 nested loops
20:33:25 <ais523> is 2 enough, for instance?
20:33:30 <tusho> oc2k1: what

20:34:19 <tusho> ,[.,[.,[.,(etc)
20:34:27 <ais523> tusho: you created an infinitely nested set of loops there!
20:34:35 <tusho> ais523: you bet
20:34:47 <tusho> an infinite cyclic brainfuck with []=if echo program is ,[.
20:36:26 <ais523> define(`divert', `ifelse(`$#', `0', ``$0'', `builtin(`$0', $@)')')
20:36:31 <ais523> that's from the GNU m4 manual
20:36:40 <oc2k1> it should be possible to write a BF interpreter with a single loop and if constructions. In that case the nested loops won't be nessesary for turing completenes
20:36:48 <ais523> explaining how to define the divert command not to trigger on random occurences of the word divert inside the text you're operating on
20:37:11 <tusho> oc2k1: no
20:37:13 <tusho> it shouldn't
20:37:32 <tusho> a single, program-wide loop + ifs = not turing complete as far as I know
20:37:38 <tusho> even with things like infinite nested ifs like ,[.,
20:37:39 <tusho> err
20:37:40 <tusho> ,[.
20:37:46 <ais523> tusho: http://code.eso-std.org/c-intercal/pit/sort.i
20:37:54 <ais523> a single, program-wide loop + ifs
20:37:56 <ais523> just as you wanted
20:38:02 <tusho> ais523: yes, and?
20:38:11 <tusho> can sort.i perform any computation a turing machine can do with unlimited memory?
20:38:22 <ais523> I believe Joris was working on a compiler to compile arbitrary INTERCAL programs into that form
20:38:49 <tusho> ais523: so you think that cyclic brainfuck where [] = if and no infinite [] stacks is TC?
20:38:52 <ais523> I know because e sent me a feature request asking me to fix the way ABSTAIN interacted with array dimensioning
20:38:52 <tusho> i really, really doubt it
20:38:58 <ais523> tusho: so do I
20:39:13 <ais523> hmm... maybe not
20:39:20 <ais523> the INTERCAL version corresponds to nested []
20:39:26 <tusho> exactly
20:39:31 <ais523> but there must be some limit to the nesting
20:39:35 <ais523> and all of them are ifs
20:39:36 -!- kar8nga has joined.
20:39:36 <ais523> not whiles
20:39:39 <ais523> with a loop surrounding
20:39:40 <ais523> read it
20:39:48 <ais523> you'll get some idea of how it works
20:39:57 <tusho> ais523: I don't know INTERCAL.
20:40:03 <oerjan> tusho: it's rather trivial to rewrite a finite state machine as a single loop + ifs. this gives you the core of a turing machine.
20:40:12 <tusho> oerjan: of course
20:40:18 <tusho> but it's the non-core bit thats hard...
20:40:31 <oerjan> huh?
20:40:38 <ais523> tusho: I think you can do it using variables to hold the location in the program
20:40:41 <ais523> oerjan's right
20:40:42 <oerjan> no it is not the rest is just the infinite tape
20:40:48 <tusho> Hm.
20:41:01 <ais523> say you have a BF tape with every other cell empty
20:41:10 <tusho> Well, it's easy to simulate this language with regular BF...
20:41:14 <ais523> you can use the distance from the pointer to the "empty" cell set to 1
20:41:21 <ais523> to record where in the program you are
20:41:23 <ais523> from there, it's easy
20:41:24 <tusho> ah, wait no
20:41:27 <tusho> you'd need to copy
20:41:28 <tusho> whatever
20:41:45 <tusho> if anyone can write a bf interp where [] is forbidden, {} is if, and the program is cyclic...be my guest
20:41:47 <tusho> I would love to see it
20:41:54 <tusho> i mean
20:41:56 <tusho> i bf interp
20:41:59 <tusho> in the modified language
20:42:00 <ais523> bf to that language compiler?
20:42:11 <ais523> or just compile across a BF interp in BF
20:42:18 <ais523> hmm.. dbfi is BF in BF, is it?

20:42:30 -!- Slereah has joined.
20:42:33 <tusho> yes
20:42:39 <tusho> and
20:42:40 <tusho> either
20:42:44 <tusho> bf -> language compiler
20:42:47 <tusho> or a program written in that language
20:42:49 <tusho> that interprets bf
20:42:55 <tusho> ala dbfi
20:43:21 <ais523> ah, ofc it's trivial
20:43:29 <ais523> the case statement structure I'm inventing for gccbf never loops
20:43:33 <ais523> just uses [] as ifs
20:43:36 <tusho> heh
20:43:45 <ais523> so you just do the program as a case statement in a loop
20:43:56 <ais523> or nested case statements if you have more than 256 commands
20:44:24 <oc2k1> the only disadvantage is that looping have to be emulated by running the full program n times
20:45:56 <ais523> oc2k1: not really, my case statement is quite optimised
20:46:07 -!- Corun has quit (Connection timed out).
20:47:30 <oc2k1> but coding could be very hard, because each recursive if state ment hast to be emulated by non recursive ones
20:47:43 <ais523> we're allowing any number of nested ifs
20:47:50 <ais523> just not whiles apart from around the whole program
20:48:46 <oc2k1> that requires a stack counter ... waste of hard/software
20:49:14 <tusho> uh
20:49:16 <tusho> whoop de doo?
20:49:18 <ais523> no it doesn't
20:49:21 <ais523> just a program counter
20:49:23 <tusho> hardly a waste at all
20:49:26 <tusho> also, ais523 is right
20:49:30 <ais523> it's basically the switch in a loop paradigm
20:49:48 <ais523> which can be used in any language, more or less, to convert the program into ifs surrounded by a loop
20:49:53 <ais523> even brainfuck
20:49:59 <ais523> probably not Malbolge, though
20:50:51 <ais523> PLEASE DO .6<-"&!8$.5'"~'#0$#65535' DO .8<-"?!8$.5'"~'#0$#65535' DO .5<-!6$#0'~"#32767$#1" DO .7<-'V.7$".6~#32768"'~"#0$#65535"
20:50:56 <ais523> I ended up writing that 16 times
20:51:01 <ais523> an unrolled loop to do addition
20:51:17 <ais523> because it was easier and faster than figuring out how to localise the addition loop amongst the rest of the program...
20:51:30 <ais523> ofc (1)DOCOMEFROM".2~.2"~#1WHILE:1<-"'?.1$.2'~'"':1/.1$.2'~#0"$#65535'"$"'"'&.1$.2'~'#0$#65535'"$#0'~#32767$#1" is shorter
20:51:43 <ais523> but that has a loop in so isn't allowed in the TRY AGAIN paradigm

20:53:59 <tusho> ha, yea right
20:54:05 <ais523> no, honestly
20:54:07 <ais523> oerjan: agreed?
20:54:53 <ais523> someone should add INTERCAL to anagolf
20:55:17 <tusho> golf is dead, long die golf
20:55:28 <ais523> no it isn't
20:55:32 <ais523> anagolf is still going
20:55:40 <ais523> and codegolf even added a new problem a few months ago
20:55:42 <tusho> but slowly
20:55:49 <ais523> which given the speed codegolf goes at is lightning-fast
20:56:43 <tusho> the codegolf stuff is just too difficult
20:56:52 <ais523> no it isn't, really
20:56:55 <ais523> just harder than anagold
