00:00:18 <monqy> what oerjan said
00:01:05 <oerjan> Braber01: it's working with the different name. our wiki itself is fine, but the name server provider for one of the names is closing down.
00:01:21 <oerjan> so you need to use the other address.
00:01:42 <Braber01> do you think my IP will get banned if I convert a 99 bottles bf program to what I like to call forkfork?
00:02:03 <Braber01> baned from 99-bottles-of-beer.net
00:02:14 -!- sebbu2 has changed nick to sebbu.
00:02:24 <oerjan> Sgeo: the concept of dimension as "number of variables you need to describe a shape" is not the same as topological dimension.
00:02:37 <Sgeo> Oh
00:02:41 <oerjan> Braber01: i dunno
00:03:33 <Braber01> neither do I but at least I'll have a fun project to do over the weekend.
00:04:30 <oerjan> Braber01: no one will mind if you put it on our wiki, at least. (well not for the swearing, anyhow. there are some who have a burning hate against brainfuck derivatives.)
00:05:13 <itidus20> but thats only for the reason that there are so many brainfuck derivatives that even a smee hee like me knows about them
00:06:06 <Braber01> I think I kind of liked i-hate-your-bf-deritive-i-really-do I thought that article was pretty funny.
00:06:21 <monqy> there are at least two reasons to hate brainfuck derivatives
00:06:21 <oerjan> Sgeo: but i think if you _really_ want to understand the concept of this as it relates to hyperplane stuff, then algebraic geometry is probably the field for it.
00:06:25 <monqy> 1) there are so many it's getting old
00:06:45 <Sgeo> monqy, do you hate me.
00:06:49 <monqy> 2) they're typically really uncreative, just renaming the commands or adding a new command or something like that
00:06:53 <monqy> Sgeo: what did you do
00:07:02 <Sgeo> monqy, made a brainfuck derivative.
00:07:05 <monqy> :'(
00:07:10 <monqy> some brainfuck derivatives are good
00:07:14 <monqy> but
00:07:15 <monqy> it's rare
00:07:19 <itidus20> By appending an exclamation mark ('!') a command can be repeated, without the need to write the word again. <-- that right there is very clever indeed
00:07:45 <oerjan> itidus20: yeah +!!!!! is _so_ much better than ++++++ :P
00:07:47 <Sgeo> I think zzo38 using my BF derivative is not necessarily an indicator of goodness
00:08:12 <oerjan> oh wait this is fuckfuck
00:08:24 <oerjan> so i guess it is a slight improvement
00:08:38 <itidus20> oerjan: but the idea is genius
00:08:43 <Braber01> no it's Trourettes. LOL
00:08:51 <monqy> ok
00:09:23 <oerjan> fucking tourettes, bitches
00:11:03 <oerjan> itidus20: wait are you actually making a euphemism for "smeg head" :P
00:11:50 <oerjan> oh it's canonical
00:12:04 <itidus20> i don't follow red dwarf much but i saw a youtube of it the other day with that euphemism
00:13:18 <oerjan> i haven't exactly seen every episode either.
00:14:06 <itidus20> i'm no lister.. even though i consider myself quite possibly the least nerdiest in here
00:14:14 <itidus20> that is not saying much
00:15:10 <oerjan> no. no it isn't.
00:15:10 <itidus20> i don't think this room really attracts lister types
00:15:32 <lifthrasiir> oerjan: or you can use a binary encoding so +!?! is really + followed by five copies of it
00:15:42 <oerjan> lifthrasiir: ooh, fancy!
00:15:58 <lifthrasiir> (boob!?! in fuckfuck, of course)
00:16:09 <itidus20> wow.....
00:16:14 <itidus20> ha ha hahahaha
00:16:27 <Braber01> I like tits.
00:16:27 <itidus20> i might never look at !?!?! the same

00:22:20 <itidus20> wow.
00:22:33 <itidus20> so fast
00:22:53 * Braber01 is ashamed that I startted something...
00:23:29 <lifthrasiir> is Uniquode still being updated?
00:23:35 <elliott> ask taneb :P
00:24:50 <lifthrasiir> i recall one from the list of ideas that recommends the use of chinese characters for golfing
00:25:59 <oerjan> <meme>Scumbag Taneb makes Uniquode; never gets beyond 256 commands.</meme>
00:26:19 <elliott> 17:22:58: <Gregor> "Apple decided to use an archaic object file format for Mac OS X, a variant of the old aout format. This format predates dynamic linking. Apparently without proper staffing, they have to reinvent lots of stuff for their obsolete object format. Had they chosen a current object formats, they could have taken more benefit of the the quality work already done within the GNU project."

00:27:16 <Gregor> elliott: I love how unbiased that is :P
00:27:49 <elliott> Gregor: You see, Apple failed to create GNU/Hurd.
00:27:55 <Gregor> BASTARDS
00:28:19 <Gregor> Well, to be fair, they got close, in that they used a microkernel infrastructure, but missed pretty terribly as they put a monolithic kernel on the microkernel.

00:29:09 <elliott> 19:48:38: <Gregor> Huh
00:29:10 <elliott> 19:48:44: <Gregor> Seems to be special-cased for @messags.

00:29:18 <lambdabot> id
00:29:18 <Gregor> We resolved that.
00:29:21 <pikhq_> Gregor: That's been the standard means of using Mach.
00:29:28 <elliott> I resolved it sooner, relativity-wise.
00:29:33 <pikhq_> Sadly.
00:29:34 <Gregor> pikhq_: IT'S NOT THE HURD WAY
00:29:39 <elliott> 20:17:25: <Gregor> 4) ... GNU lightning?
00:29:39 <elliott> 20:17:37: <Gregor> There aren't really any good JIT libraries, are there :P
00:29:45 <elliott> Gregor: GNU lightning is pretty good, so is LLVM :P
00:29:52 <Gregor> GNU lightning is good???
00:29:54 <elliott> LLVM is better but probably harder to use.
00:29:54 <pikhq_> The Hurd way involves not hitting 1.0 for decades.
00:29:56 <elliott> Gregor: Well, it works?
00:30:19 <elliott> Racket, GNU Smalltalk and CLISP use it apparently, so it can't be so terrible.
00:30:26 <Gregor> Huh ...
00:30:28 <elliott> It's probably not very fast though.
00:30:35 <Gregor> That's probably almost fifteen end users.
00:30:36 <elliott> "It does not provide register allocation, data-flow, and control-flow analysis, or optimization."
00:30:41 <elliott> Har har har
00:30:43 <Gregor> :P
00:30:55 <elliott> Racket and CLISP are pretty big :P
00:31:05 <pikhq_> Also. I'm pretty sure all the work on Mach-O was done before Apple bought NeXT.
00:31:10 <Gregor> elliott: Yeah, I'm bein' a durp.
00:31:38 <Gregor> pikhq_: I was laughing at how stupid that whole paragraph was, not agreeing with it. Although it is a silly format.
00:31:54 <elliott> I like the implication that writing a binutils is the HARDEST THING EVR.
00:31:55 <elliott> EVER.
00:32:04 <elliott> Presumably because GNU aren't very good at it.
00:32:08 <Gregor> X-D
00:32:08 <pikhq_> elliott: Not writing a binutils.
00:32:11 <pikhq_> Porting one.
00:32:28 <pikhq_> Which *seems* to be one of the few things that's easy with GNU binutils.
00:32:48 <pikhq_> The whole thing is based around an object format abstraction library, after all.
00:33:04 <elliott> 20:42:14: <Gregor> I wonder if there's a crazy mix of options that would cause GCC to compile a single function and output the machine code for it, not in any object file format.
00:33:12 <Gregor> elliott: We found one.
00:33:14 <elliott> Gregor: with -S , filtering and gas options, I suspect so
00:33:23 <elliott> Gregor: But it'll be SO SLOW :P
00:33:25 <Gregor> No, I'm not going to implement gcc as a JIT, though I desperately want to.
00:33:40 <Gregor> (GNU lightning) "The available backends cover the x86, SPARC and PowerPC architectures." I hope this at least includes x86_64 ...
00:33:57 <pikhq_> Bit silly if it didn't.
00:34:08 <elliott> Gregor: Your template JIT is probably the best you'll get for Fythe without writing something better yourself, I think.
00:34:15 <Gregor> Noooooooooooooose
00:34:16 <pikhq_> x86_64 is easy to target from x86-land if you're not retarded.
00:34:19 <elliott> I mean, LLVM ain't exactly designed for compiling things tiny bits at a time
00:34:28 <elliott> Which Fythe practically mandates :P
00:34:43 <Gregor> Piffle.
00:34:55 <itidus20> im not sure if i made a mistake converting this in notepad but: fuck boob!??? arse shag boob!!! tits butt shag cock fuck boob!!? arse shag boob!! tits butt shag boob cock boob!!? cock! boob!? cock fuck!? boob!!! arse shag boob!! tits butt shag cock fuck!? boob!??! arse shag boob!??? tits butt shag tits!? cock shag!! cock boob!? cock tits!?! cock tits!!! cock fuck! boob cock
00:34:58 <elliott> Any optimisation pretty much kills that.
00:35:22 <pikhq_> Aside from trivial ones.
00:35:28 <Gregor> My goal was to have fastjit be the baseline, and use something else as the optimizing JIT for oft-called functions.
00:35:32 <Gregor> fastjit itself ain't goin' nowhere.
00:35:38 <elliott> Right.
00:35:44 <elliott> I'd just write my own :P
00:35:53 <Gregor> But Idonwanna :P
00:35:58 <elliott> Sucks to depend on two totally different JITs
00:36:02 <elliott> Especially interoperability
00:36:21 <Gregor> SpiderMonkey has two JITs and an interpreter :P
00:36:53 <elliott> Yeah, but I mean "you have to ensure LLVM works on your machine and links in and also that fastjit works on your machine" vs. "you have to check our two related JITs work on your machine"
00:37:13 -!- javawizard has quit (Read error: Operation timed out).
00:37:32 <Gregor> Mmmmm, fair enough, although the slow JIT ought to be optional.
00:37:40 <elliott> 21:53:08: <oerjan> there is no reliable way to have a > bottom always return True, if it looks at the second argument at all
00:37:40 <elliott> 21:53:24: <oerjan> _some_ bottoms can be catched, but not all
00:37:40 <elliott> 21:53:35: <oerjan> and that is not pure code
00:37:46 <elliott> oerjan: you can do a lot with unamb, mind you

00:41:20 <Gregor> I know!
00:41:24 <Gregor> It's shocking!
00:41:47 <Gregor> Though either way it's still a traditional compiler in the sense that it writes assembly. So even with a library, it's be a slow piece of shit :P

00:51:27 <CakeProphet> Also I was wondering if you including bottom in an Ord instance, or would that require solving the halting problem?
00:51:30 <oerjan> a >= bottom might work only for a the unique top element

00:51:38 <oerjan> CakeProphet: that
00:51:50 <oerjan> 's what i was saying you couldn't
00:52:10 <elliott> yeah, (inf >= bottom) is perfectly doable
00:52:15 <CakeProphet> oh we're talking about something I asked a while ago?
00:52:18 <CakeProphet> okay.
00:52:20 <oerjan> elliott: sup, not inf

01:53:19 <elliott> learning from you
01:53:50 <CakeProphet> hey at least I know when to use for loops instead of while loops.
01:56:16 <monqy> whats a loop
01:56:16 <monqy> hlep
01:56:45 <elliott> a low-level concept used before people figured out abstraction
01:57:04 <CakeProphet> and then still used after people figured out abstraction.
01:57:53 <elliott> only by irresponsible people
01:58:28 <CakeProphet> heh
02:02:51 <elliott> Has anyone used Perl's XS to evaluate Perl code from C?
02:05:24 <CakeProphet> nope
02:06:43 <CakeProphet> http://search.cpan.org/dist/perl/pod/perlxstut.pod
02:06:49 <CakeProphet> http://search.cpan.org/dist/perl/pod/perlxstut.pod
02:06:53 <CakeProphet> er....
02:07:00 <CakeProphet> http://search.cpan.org/dist/perl/pod/perlxs.pod
02:07:21 <CakeProphet> have fun.
02:07:23 <elliott> It's not helpful; that's showing it the other way around.
02:07:25 <oerjan> what do you expect from the pod people
02:07:27 <elliott> IIRC The Camel book has something but I don't want to read it
02:07:40 <CakeProphet> I'm not entirely sure it would work the other way around.
02:07:44 <elliott> It does.
02:07:50 <elliott> You can initialise the perl interpreter from C and feed it code.
02:07:54 <elliott> I just don't remember how.
02:07:56 <CakeProphet> I mean you would just want to invoke the interpreter in C right?
02:08:14 <CakeProphet> instead of using the XS stuff directly.
02:08:30 <CakeProphet> you can always read the perl source code.
02:08:36 <elliott> Perl's C API is always called XS, to my knowledge.
02:08:42 <elliott> Whatever the controlling process is.
02:09:33 <CakeProphet> oh wait I know how to do it.
02:09:39 <CakeProphet> system("perl ...") :P
02:09:58 <elliott> Helpful
02:11:43 <CakeProphet> #perl
02:11:57 <elliott> No thanks
02:12:28 <elliott> Section 21.4. Embedding Perl (Using Perl from C)
02:12:33 <elliott> Now to get a hold of this
02:12:53 <CakeProphet> is that the camel book?
02:13:01 <elliott> Yes.
02:13:13 <elliott> OReilly - Programming Perl.pdf 4 Mb
02:13:13 <elliott> Seems a bit small...
02:13:28 <CakeProphet> trap
02:13:28 <CakeProphet> trap
02:13:30 <CakeProphet> trap
02:13:39 <elliott> Dude, I run a secure-ish operating system.
02:13:46 <CakeProphet> trap
02:13:54 <elliott> Are you trying to be annoying?
02:14:23 <elliott> Aha, here's some info.
02:16:57 <pikhq_> He's not using Adobe reader.
02:17:20 <elliott> http://search.cpan.org/~jesse/perl-5.14.1/pod/perlembed.pod oh this is useful
02:17:44 <elliott> oh, heh, this has more information than the camel book sample
02:17:47 <elliott> PERL_SYS_INIT3(&argc,&argv,&env);
02:17:47 <elliott> lol
02:19:08 <CakeProphet> http://perldoc.perl.org/perlembed.html same thing I believe
02:19:17 <elliott> /usr/lib/perl/5.10/CORE/perl.h oh dear god
02:19:22 <CakeProphet> ...yep
02:19:22 <elliott> look at that shit
02:19:25 <CakeProphet> I've seen it.
02:19:39 <elliott> oh my god it handles plan9
02:19:50 <CakeProphet> you should look at Configure
02:19:55 <elliott> jesus christ guys i just want to know the return type of perl_construct
02:20:09 <pikhq_> If it makes you feel better, Configure is autogenerated by something that inspired autoconf.
02:20:20 <CakeProphet> yes but it's still ridiculous
02:20:23 <elliott> ./proto.h:PERL_CALLCONV voidperl_construct(PerlInterpreter *my_perl)
02:20:23 <elliott> ok good
02:20:41 <pikhq_> "Inspired autoconf".
02:21:04 <oerjan> perl_construct has an inconstructible return type
02:22:01 <CakeProphet> elliott: are you being irresponsible and using loops right now?
02:22:23 <elliott> no
02:22:33 <elliott> Perl_sys_init3(&argc, &argv, &env);
02:22:34 <elliott> Perl_sys_term();
02:22:34 <elliott> ok good they're functions here
02:24:41 <CakeProphet> it looks pretty easy to call perl subroutines actually.
02:24:47 <CakeProphet> based on perlembed
02:26:03 <CakeProphet> but the example doesn't show you how to pass arguments to the subroutine.
02:26:08 <CakeProphet> just does the no argument case.
02:27:36 <CakeProphet> also http://perldoc.perl.org/perlguts.html may be of use here.
02:27:46 <CakeProphet> depending on what you're doing exactly.
02:28:01 <elliott> Evaluating Perl expressions as scalars and getting the result back.
02:28:24 <CakeProphet> then yeah perlguts will show you how to convert to-from C-Perl types.
02:28:24 <elliott> Preferably without maintaining any state between evaluations but it's understandable if that happens.
02:28:51 <CakeProphet> ...I would think the only way to do that would be to invoke a fresh interpreter each time.
02:28:58 <elliott> probably
02:29:01 <elliott> its ok
02:29:05 <elliott> if state gets maintained

02:54:07 <pikhq_> But functional programming is unPythonic!
02:54:23 <CakeProphet> apparently.
02:54:30 <CakeProphet> since there's such shitty support for it.
02:54:31 <pikhq_> (just like closures, garbage collection, and everything but C! :P)
02:55:12 <CakeProphet> man, why do people like Python again?
02:55:16 <Sgeo> You can do functional programming in Python! See? See? I mean, it's ugly, and not recommended, but why would you curse Python for something it can do?
02:55:17 <Sgeo> /s
02:55:18 <CakeProphet> is it just because it's easy to code?
02:55:26 <pikhq_> That's precisely why.
02:55:30 <monqy> what's easy
02:55:31 <monqy> help
02:55:35 <pikhq_> It's a bit like Perl but less awful.
02:55:40 * Sgeo might be becoming an ex-Pythonista
02:55:42 <monqy> snicker
02:55:54 * CakeProphet is an ex-pythonista
02:56:01 <Sgeo> Although not sure that Ruby is much better...
02:56:03 <monqy> I was never a python fanatic
02:56:11 <pikhq_> Ruby is like Python but more awful.
02:56:16 <monqy> yep
02:56:26 <Sgeo> more?
02:56:27 <CakeProphet> Perl is the best of the three. :)
02:56:48 <CakeProphet> though not perfect by any means.
02:56:58 <pikhq_> The implementation actually does hacks to prevent GCC from optimising their undefined behavior in undesirable ways.
02:57:07 <pikhq_> Definitely more awful.
02:58:02 <Sgeo> It's undefined behavior, why would it matter if it were optimized in some way? Or do you mean C's undefined behavior?
02:58:36 <Jafet> linux does it too; they're in good company
02:58:40 <elliott> wtf? /usr/lib/libperl.so.5.10 exists, but -lperl doesn't get it?
02:59:16 <pikhq_> Sgeo: C's.
02:59:22 <Sgeo> Oh
02:59:27 <pikhq_> elliott: -l only looks for .so
02:59:33 <Sgeo> Well, aren't there other implementations?
02:59:37 <elliott> pikhq_: what am I meant to do then

03:00:04 <CakeProphet> or copy it.
03:00:09 <CakeProphet> copy is probably a better idea.
03:00:12 <pikhq_> Also, because Perl is *blithering stupid*, you're not supposed to link it with -lperl at all.
03:00:32 <monqy> personal insult to cake prohpet
03:00:49 <pikhq_> IIRC you're supposed to query the interpreter for the path to the libperl file, and make sure to set the rpath to include the path to the libperl file.

03:01:39 <elliott> Sgeo: http://timetobleed.com/the-broken-promises-of-mrireeyarv/ has information on Ruby's undefined behaviour
03:01:44 <pikhq_> *Perl. Fucking. Hates. You.*
03:01:55 <elliott> pikhq_: dude, stfu
03:02:00 <elliott> the above is the documented way to do it
03:02:05 <elliott> so clearly -lperl is meant to work
03:02:38 <pikhq_> elliott: Strange, that actually cannot work on out-of-the-box Perl.
03:02:50 <pikhq_> libperl does not install in the library search path at all.
03:03:16 <elliott> ok but seriously, i'm working with ghc here, what do i need to pass to ld to link with libperl in some VAGUELY portable awy
03:03:17 <elliott> way
03:03:41 <pikhq_> Cry.
03:03:46 <elliott> not helpful thx
03:04:09 <elliott> ld-options: /usr/lib/libperl.so.5.10
03:04:09 <elliott> this works
03:04:32 <oerjan> ghc + perl now that sounds like a match
03:04:40 <CakeProphet> I agree.
03:04:44 <elliott> oerjan: implementing the PERL fingerprint
03:04:48 <CakeProphet> in a not sarcastic way.
03:05:53 <oerjan> elliott: i sincerely hope that is not required for running fungot.
03:05:53 <fungot> oerjan: as i have, and it began in 57, as bryant still had his glory days ahead of him at that time.
03:06:21 <elliott> hmm, eval_pv
03:06:24 <CakeProphet> man JS regex is so bad.
03:06:24 <elliott> oerjan: nope
03:08:56 <CakeProphet> elliott: assuming eval_pv is how the eval operator is implemented, then you can maintain state between evals.
03:09:53 <CakeProphet> perlapi seems to seems to suggest that eval_pv is basically like eval.
03:10:05 <elliott> no shit
03:10:05 <CakeProphet> ...vaguely, granted.
03:11:32 <CakeProphet> also maybe perl_construct is not very expensive so that could be used to reset state.
03:13:05 <CakeProphet> nevermind that's a bad idea. :P
03:14:05 <CakeProphet> well, maybe not: http://perldoc.perl.org/perlembed.html#Maintaining-multiple-interpreter-instances
03:14:34 <CakeProphet> perl_destruct resets everything.
03:16:27 <CakeProphet> ...Python makes me hate exceptions.
03:17:51 <aspect> Python makes me hate lots of things. Usually myself, for forgetting how much I hate it in between uses
03:18:19 <Sgeo> I think I'm using some stupid Ruby IDE just for the editor
03:18:33 <Sgeo> Erm, editor component
03:18:57 <CakeProphet> I should probably get an IDE for Python as python-mode in emacs is especially not so great with indents.
03:19:29 <Sgeo> :/ how difficult could it be to do the right thing with indentation in Python?
03:19:46 <CakeProphet> well it's just dedenting takes more keystrokes than I would like, basically.
03:21:07 <CakeProphet> spamming tab a bunch basically cycles through all of the possible indent levels, starting with the highest level
03:21:32 <aspect> don't you just write some elisp to fix that?
03:21:47 <CakeProphet> ...well, if I had the time to learn how, sure.
03:21:54 <CakeProphet> not at the moment though.
03:21:56 <aspect> like in vim we might use a macro or a :noremap
03:22:15 <CakeProphet> usually a backspace does the right thing, but not always.
03:22:21 <aspect> see, as a vim user I long for the cleanliness of elisp
03:22:48 <Sgeo> Gah
03:23:02 <aspect> maybe Zimbu deserves a place in the esolang hall of fame
03:23:05 <Sgeo> I was hoping to just pass a bunch of numbers to some google API in a URL to get a nice pretty chart
03:24:01 <elliott> Do you have to free SVs after using them?
03:24:38 <CakeProphet> I would think so.
03:24:42 <elliott> Or will destroying a Perl interpreter do that?
03:24:49 <elliott> The example doesn't free the result of eval_pv.
03:25:02 <CakeProphet> hmmm... freeing the interpreter would probably do that, yes.
03:25:10 <CakeProphet> ....I base this on... nothing.
03:25:16 <CakeProphet> other than it makes sense.
03:25:46 <Sgeo> cur_value = rand
03:25:56 <Sgeo> I can't help but thinking how... nonsensical that looks
03:26:03 <CakeProphet> what is that?
03:26:17 <Sgeo> Giving cur_value a random value between 0 and 1
03:26:20 <Sgeo> in Ruby
03:26:23 <CakeProphet> no I mean what lang-- oh okay
03:26:43 <CakeProphet> well, that makes sense to me, but only because that's exactly what perl does. :P
03:27:08 <CakeProphet> except 1 is not included.
03:27:26 <CakeProphet> if you want 0 or 1 in Perl you'd write int(rand(2))
03:27:30 <Sgeo> Erm, didn't mean to imply it's included in Ruby
03:27:49 <Sgeo> Just that... my Python instincts are yelling at me that I'm just storing the rand function in cur_value
03:27:54 <CakeProphet> heh
03:28:16 <CakeProphet> higher-order functions? that's nonsense.
03:28:31 <CakeProphet> use references, or, uh, Ruby uses symbols or someting right?
03:28:34 <CakeProphet> or just blocks
03:30:28 <Sgeo> method(:rand) works, and I think there's syntax sugar for that
03:31:02 <CakeProphet> I think in most "higher-order functions" you'd pass a block that does the calling.
03:31:50 <CakeProphet> in Perl it would be \rand
03:32:45 <elliott> gah, eval_pv is too limited
03:32:54 <elliott> or hmm
03:33:00 <CakeProphet> you want arbitrary statements?
03:33:15 <elliott> I need to specify that I want a scalar result
03:33:20 <elliott> oh hmm
03:33:22 <elliott> that's default
03:33:22 <elliott> ok then
03:33:31 <CakeProphet> eval_sv maybe?
03:33:37 <elliott> nah, eval_pv is ok
03:35:26 <CakeProphet> so it always forces scalar? What if you wanted an AV or HV?
03:36:16 <elliott> (((x)->sv_flags & (0x00000400)) == 0x00000400 ? ((x)->sv_u.svu_pv) : Perl_sv_2pv_flags(my_perl, x,0,2))
03:36:17 <elliott> my god
03:36:22 <elliott> CakeProphet: then you need eval_sv i guess
03:36:53 <elliott> hmm, SvPVX is ((x)->sv_u.svu_pv)
03:36:54 <CakeProphet> er.... is there no constant for 0x00000400?
03:37:23 <elliott> that's cpp output dude
03:37:32 <CakeProphet> oh nevermind...
03:37:39 <elliott> sv_pvbyten_force
03:37:39 <elliott> The backend for the SvPVbytex_force macro. Always use the macro instead.
03:37:41 <CakeProphet> I thought that was your actual code. :P
03:37:41 <elliott> what if i didn't ;) ;) ;)
03:37:53 <elliott> (I should really write C glue for this but I DO WHAT I WANT)

03:43:45 <elliott> hmmm
03:44:17 <CakeProphet> so what are you doing with these fingerprints exactly?
03:44:33 <elliott> implementing them
03:44:49 <CakeProphet> right but for what purpose do they serve?
03:44:58 <elliott> to be implemented
03:45:00 <elliott> they are specifications
03:45:25 <CakeProphet> o_O? okay. not following. oh well

03:52:24 <CakeProphet> oh good.
03:52:27 <monqy> why does f98 have perl ffi
03:52:35 <elliott> monqy: because someone wrote it
03:53:08 <CakeProphet> like.. is it not possible to set a breakpoint in your C?
03:53:18 <CakeProphet> or see a stack trace?
03:53:21 <elliott> CakeProphet: I have no C.
03:53:38 <CakeProphet> >_>?
03:53:47 <elliott> That is not a question.
03:53:51 <elliott> At least, not a coherent one.
03:54:15 <CakeProphet> I thought you were using C to interface the perl interpreter to GHC/Haskell.
03:54:27 <elliott> No, I'm using the FFI.

03:56:23 <CakeProphet> I did not know that GHC supported postfix
03:56:34 <oerjan> it's a flag
03:56:39 <CakeProphet> unary postfix, that is.
03:56:58 <CakeProphet> or is it n-ary because that would be sweet...
03:57:04 <elliott> using it like that is obviously standard haskell.
03:57:06 <oerjan> it's a minor adjustment to section syntax
03:57:15 <CakeProphet> elliott: obviously
03:57:38 <oerjan> elliott: not quite, standard haskell wants (10!) to have a function type
03:57:50 <elliott> oerjan: huh, it does?
03:57:51 <oerjan> because it desugars to (\x -> 10 ! x)
03:57:56 <elliott> well that's just an overly draconian standard :P
03:58:11 <oerjan> well, so ghc relaxes it.
03:58:16 <elliott> right
03:58:21 <Sgeo> Binary Searches should not be going that far off the rails!
03:58:36 <CakeProphet> wat
03:59:13 * Sgeo decides to bug hunt
03:59:23 <CakeProphet> I SEE.
03:59:44 <Jafet> You should re-evaluate your goals
03:59:52 <quintopia> (his goal is to find a life partner)
04:00:11 <quintopia> (it could be you jafet)
04:00:16 <oerjan> hm (!10) desugars to (\x -> x ! 10) which is the same as flip (!) 10
04:00:19 <oerjan> :t flip
04:00:20 <lambdabot> forall (f :: * -> *) a b. (Functor f) => f (a -> b) -> a -> f b
04:00:36 <oerjan> so what if it used caleskell flip...
04:01:04 <oerjan> this is not necessarily that much of an improvement.
04:01:07 <CakeProphet> for some reason my parser enters an infinite loop, but I am not sure what is causing it.
04:01:16 <CakeProphet> I thought it was binary operators but apparently not.
04:01:18 <oerjan> CakeProphet: left recursion
04:01:21 <Sgeo> The distribution looks skewed, as I expect
04:01:24 <oerjan> (always a good guess)
04:01:37 <Sgeo> Then again, I can't tell whether a distribution is skewed
04:02:22 <CakeProphet> oerjan: thats where the first alternative is recursive and descends infinitely before the simpler terms are ever checks, right?
04:02:25 <CakeProphet> yeah, it's not that.
04:02:29 <CakeProphet> *checked
04:03:16 <CakeProphet> well, it could be, since I didn't actually implement the binary operator code.
04:03:38 <Sgeo> !@#$
04:03:38 <CakeProphet> just calling a helper function, similar to the one Parsec has.
04:03:44 <Sgeo> Stupid auto-return
04:03:53 <oerjan> cakyep
04:03:55 <Sgeo> I auto-returned the result of resetting the simulation
04:03:57 <oerjan> er
04:04:03 <oerjan> CakeProphet: yep
04:04:04 <CakeProphet> lol
04:04:10 <elliott> cakyep
04:04:12 <CakeProphet> NO TAB COMPLETE FOR YOU
04:04:40 <oerjan> D:
04:04:52 <CakeProphet> Sgeo: what's wrong with that exactly?
04:05:11 <Sgeo> I wasn't getting the results of the simulation
04:05:24 <Sgeo> Instead getting the "result" of a freshly reset simulation
04:05:50 <CakeProphet> I don't really understand, if you anted the simulation you could just explicitly return...
04:05:52 <Sgeo> Maybe I shouldn't be resetting it in the same method that returns the result
04:05:54 <CakeProphet> +w
04:06:08 <Sgeo> Yes, but I didn't see that I messed it up
04:06:22 <oerjan> @hoogle expressionParser
04:06:23 <lambdabot> Text.Parsec.Expr buildExpressionParser :: Stream s m t => OperatorTable s u m a -> ParsecT s u m a -> ParsecT s u m a
04:06:23 <lambdabot> Text.ParserCombinators.Parsec.Expr buildExpressionParser :: OperatorTable tok st a -> GenParser tok st a -> GenParser tok st a
04:06:41 <CakeProphet> Sgeo: oh you're still thinking in Python where assignment doesn't result in anything or whatever, maybe?
04:06:57 <Sgeo> I don't... think so
04:07:28 <oerjan> CakeProphet: you're not doing the equivalent of expression = buildExpressionParser table expression, are you? because that i think would infinitely recurse iirc what that means
04:07:49 <CakeProphet> yes that's pretty much what I'm doing.
04:08:11 <CakeProphet> though it may be implemented differently.
04:08:38 <CakeProphet> well, no.
04:08:40 <CakeProphet> not quite
04:08:49 <CakeProphet> I am not recursively evaluating expression
04:08:53 <CakeProphet> I'll show you.
04:09:17 <oerjan> ok :P
04:09:34 <oerjan> because that would have been an error
04:17:00 <elliott> dear perl api an ultimatum
04:17:03 <elliott> work or i will an kills you
04:17:05 <elliott> oh hm
04:17:11 <elliott> maybe i fail to keep the reference around
04:20:05 <elliott> why ;m this no work
04:21:32 -!- Jafet has quit (Quit: Leaving.).
04:22:38 <elliott> oh well/ me scraps it for now
04:22:41 <elliott> oops i cant type :(
04:29:20 <monqy> oops
04:34:07 <elliott> oops
04:42:11 <CakeProphet> ...wat. operator.__and__ apparently cannot and Nones
04:42:17 <CakeProphet> but None and None works fine.
04:42:59 <CakeProphet> oh wait I think __and__ is bitwise.
04:43:09 <CakeProphet> except it's not doing bitwise and...
04:43:29 <CakeProphet> oh nevermind it is.
04:43:49 <oerjan> > Nothing .&. Nothing
04:43:50 <lambdabot> No instance for (Data.Bits.Bits (Data.Maybe.Maybe a))
04:43:50 <lambdabot> arising from a use...
04:44:27 <CakeProphet> boolean and is operator.and_
04:44:34 <CakeProphet> you sure are confusing operator lib.
04:46:50 <elliott> dammit theatress,f

04:47:37 -!- augur has joined.
04:47:50 <Sgeo> There's no way to just paste those results into some Google thingy and see what it looks like, is there?
04:48:23 <elliott> maybe i should implement MODE, the most painful fingerprint EVR
04:48:24 <elliott> EVER
04:48:27 <Sgeo> Although I guess it looks very bell curve-y
04:48:43 <elliott> CakeProphet: view-source:http://catseye.tc/projects/funge98/library/MODE.html look at this shit
04:48:53 <elliott> The <tt>Q</tt> "Toggle Queuemode" instruction toggles an internal flag called
04:48:53 <elliott> <i>queuemode</i>. When queuemode is active, cells are <b>popped</b> off the
04:48:53 <elliott> stack from the <b>bottom</b> instead of the top.<p>
04:49:11 <CakeProphet> lolwat
04:49:29 <elliott> ALMOST AS GREAT AS TRDS
04:50:00 <CakeProphet> use feature 'say switch';
04:50:11 <CakeProphet> except now befunge and more obfuscated!
04:50:18 <CakeProphet> or... whatever funge-98 is
04:50:28 <elliott> a family of languages
04:51:09 -!- Jafet has joined.
04:51:20 <CakeProphet> do you currently have a system that allows you to make huge changes to language semantics like that?
04:51:24 <elliott> nope
04:51:31 <elliott> i just need to abstract out push/pop but sodjfsdjfoi
04:51:32 <CakeProphet> I know in Haskell this requires a bit of forethought.
04:51:40 <elliott> nah, I can easily do it
04:51:44 <elliott> TRDS will be way harder
04:51:48 <elliott> MVRS probably even moreso
04:51:56 <elliott> FNGR will be annoying too
04:51:56 <CakeProphet> !wacro
04:51:59 <EgoBot> SAR
04:52:02 <CakeProphet> what about SAR?
04:52:04 <elliott> TRDS is time travel
04:52:06 <elliott> http://www.rcfunge98.com/rcsfingers.html#TRDS
04:52:21 <elliott> MVRS is multiverse, basically a bunch of fungespaces that shit runs in, http://www.rcfunge98.com/rcsfingers.html#MVRS
04:52:33 <elliott> and FNGR is just a "switch around loaded fingerprint instructions and shit" fingerprint
04:52:33 <elliott> BUT
04:52:39 <elliott> it assumes the wrong semantics for fingerprints
04:52:44 <elliott> fingerprints push each instruction, not the fingerprint as a whole
04:52:57 <elliott> so basically you have to change the entire fingerprint push/pop system when FNGR is loaded
04:52:57 <CakeProphet> maybe you just like
04:52:59 <CakeProphet> not implement those.
04:52:59 <elliott> and fix it on unload
04:53:11 <elliott> CakeProphet: there are programs using them, Mycology tests most of them
04:54:05 <CakeProphet> oh I see.
04:54:10 <elliott> what do you see
04:54:24 <CakeProphet> I see that you want your implementation to be complete, basically.
04:54:41 <elliott> it could be worse, I need to implement WIND portably
04:54:49 <elliott> hmm, actually that's not so hard
04:54:52 <CakeProphet> ....portably?
04:54:57 <CakeProphet> that sounds like an oxymoron.
04:55:00 <elliott> what will be harder to implement portably
04:55:01 <elliott> is
04:55:04 <Sgeo> Why is what I thought would be a weird distribution normal?
04:55:08 <CakeProphet> "portable windows extensions"
04:55:11 <Sgeo> Or at least, it looks normal at a glance
04:55:15 <elliott> "MSGQ"0x44d534751SysV IPC Message Queues(RCS)
04:55:15 <elliott> "SMEM"0x534d454dSysV IPC Shared Memory(RCS)
04:55:15 <elliott> "SMPH"0x534d5048SysV IPC Semaphores(RCS)
04:55:21 <elliott> those will be hard to do portably.
04:55:25 <elliott> "UNIX"0x554e4958Some Unix access functions(RCS)
04:55:26 <elliott> as will this.
04:55:29 <elliott> but i shall.
04:55:43 <elliott> I'm sure there's /some/ Windows API to switch user
04:56:16 <CakeProphet> you should use your perl interpreter for REXP
04:56:29 <elliott> nah, it's obviously meant to be posix regexps I think
04:56:32 <CakeProphet> instead of PCRE which is lame.
04:56:37 <CakeProphet> or posix regexps which is even more lame.
04:56:44 <CakeProphet> but okay.
04:56:51 <elliott> rcfunge fingerprints may suck but I'm not going to misimplement them just to be better
04:57:06 <elliott> "FORK" 0x4464F524B
04:57:06 <elliott> T( -- pid flg)Fork new process
04:57:06 <elliott> can't wait to do this portably mmm
04:57:18 <elliott> it's not that bad since i can just like serialise state and spawn but still
04:57:24 <CakeProphet> well doesn't Haskell do forks portably?
04:57:32 <CakeProphet> *GHC
04:57:32 <elliott> not _that_ kind of fork.
04:57:39 <elliott> doing fork() on Windows is basically impossible
04:57:45 <elliott> but spawning a process works
04:59:13 <CakeProphet> do you already have SUBR?
04:59:35 <CakeProphet> ....ew FOBJ
04:59:44 -!- augur has quit (Remote host closed the connection).
04:59:47 <elliott> I don't have SUBR yet, no.
05:00:17 <elliott> http://www.rcfunge98.com/rcsfingers.html#MACR
05:00:18 <elliott> fuck my life
05:31:05 <shachaf> Hey, people of #esoteric, here's a language for you: http://timmaxwell.org/pages/monad-embed/index.html
05:31:28 <shachaf> People of #esoteric who are not elliott, feel free to give the author feedback.
05:31:36 <elliott> Gosh! I have never seen that page before in my life!
05:32:57 <monqy> a new way of using monads, eh?
05:38:46 <pikhq_> shachaf: I see you don't want right-by-definition feedback.
05:38:50 <pikhq_> :P
05:39:03 <shachaf> pikhq_: ?
05:39:21 <pikhq_> shachaf: All of elliott's opinions are right, by definition.
05:39:29 <shachaf> Oh.
05:39:53 <shachaf> pikhq_: I didn't say elliott shouldn't give feedback.
05:40:03 <shachaf> In fact, I already told him to do so, in another channel.
05:40:14 <elliott> I am the Keeper of the Right.
05:40:15 <shachaf> Asking twice seemed silly.
05:40:19 <elliott> Nobody else may have the Right.
05:40:47 <shachaf> > Right now
05:40:49 <lambdabot> Right now
05:41:03 <monqy> :t now
05:41:04 <lambdabot> Not in scope: `now'
05:41:09 <monqy> > now
05:41:10 -!- ive has quit (Quit: leaving).
05:41:10 <lambdabot> Not in scope: `now'
05:41:17 <monqy> :(
05:41:27 <Sgeo> "When C++ is your hammer, every problem looks like your thumb.
05:41:27 <Sgeo> "

05:41:54 <elliott> shachaf ruined everything
05:41:54 <oerjan> monqy: shachaf is a shameless cheater
05:42:22 <shachaf> oerjan: Excuse me?
05:42:25 <shachaf> I am now cheater.
05:42:29 <shachaf> ...Not.
05:42:32 <shachaf> I'm *not* cheater.
05:42:38 <oerjan> PROVE IT
05:42:38 <shachaf> Ugh, he's going to get highlighted now.
05:42:59 <oerjan> shachaf: that is... a problem?
05:43:06 <Sgeo> sha​chef
05:43:17 <elliott> Sounds like a problem to me.
05:43:46 <shachaf> This channel is actually for esoteric people, not esoteri languages, right?
05:43:51 <shachaf> That would explain the assortment you've got in ehre.
05:43:55 <oerjan> shachaf: fouwf avkugefreølevf abekh
05:44:07 <elliott> shachaf: That's an unfortunate result of the latter.
05:44:13 <elliott> Well, sometimes unfortunate.
05:44:37 <CakeProphet> can someone enlighten me as to the difference between /usr/lib and /usr/local/lib?
05:44:46 <elliott> CakeProphet: Former is OS, latter is system.
05:44:48 <oerjan> yes, there is a local in there
05:44:55 <elliott> OS manages former, system administrator latter.
05:45:05 <CakeProphet> ah okay.
05:45:05 <oerjan> also an extra /, although its position is ambiguous.
05:45:10 <CakeProphet> so then apt-get installs to /usr/lib?
05:45:16 <CakeProphet> or?
05:45:18 <CakeProphet> not?
05:45:18 <elliott> Yes.
05:45:21 <CakeProphet> okay.
05:45:31 <oerjan> hm strictly speaking it could be an extra ocal/l
05:45:35 <fizzie> The latter is for diet versions of libraries. (lo-cal, yo see.)
05:45:51 <CakeProphet> .....
05:45:58 <CakeProphet> these jokes are so bad.
05:46:18 <fizzie> CakeProphet: They're like the Power Glove.
05:46:26 <fizzie> (It is SO BAD.)
05:47:57 <oerjan> or perhaps the _second_ l is the original, making it an extra loca and /l
05:48:48 <quintopia> but there is no doubt as to who the original pedant-for-hire of #esoteric is
05:49:01 <oerjan> quintopia: wait, who?
05:49:25 <oerjan> and also, why haven't i been paid
05:49:41 <quintopia> oerjan: you, of course. you would never miss an opportunity to state the obvious for humor value, and then discourse about it for ten more minutes
05:49:50 <quintopia> and you are paid
05:49:52 <quintopia> in silent yuks
05:50:01 <quintopia> (and occasional real ones from gregor)
05:50:07 <elliott> puns =/= pedantry
05:50:21 <quintopia> stating the obvious =/= puns
05:50:32 <elliott> don't like it, leave
05:50:39 <aspect> that's a really weird smiley you guys use
05:50:44 <elliott> yeah
05:50:49 <elliott> we're frowning in both directions
05:50:50 <elliott> simultaneously
05:50:55 <elliott> it's due to our hyper-dimensional nature
05:50:59 <quintopia> thats no frown
05:51:05 <quintopia> thats how i smile
05:51:08 <quintopia> ever since the stroke
05:52:07 <oerjan> i did not know strokes could do that
05:53:05 <fizzie> oerjan: Maybe it was a... keystroke?
05:53:21 <oerjan> a key event, ok
05:53:52 <quintopia> no, i mean, ever since that awful billy squier song came out, i've been unable to truly smile
05:54:11 <elliott> fizzie: How's jitfunge :P
05:54:13 <oerjan> oh. good like i have no idea what song you are referring too, then.
05:54:25 <oerjan> ew, grammr
05:54:29 <oerjan> and spling
05:54:36 <elliott> grandma and spelunking
05:54:41 <elliott> a novel
05:54:53 <oerjan> that sounds like it could be readable
05:55:00 <cheater> <shachaf> I am now cheater. < NOOOOOOOOOOOOOoooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo
05:55:01 <lambdabot> cheater: You have 1 new message. '/msg lambdabot @messages' to read it.
05:55:17 <elliott> shachaf would make a nicer cheater than the one we have now.
05:55:21 <elliott> Can we apply for a transfer?
05:55:33 <quintopia> surely someone here remembers that song...it was on the small soldiers soundtrack...surely someone remembers that movie...it was probably worse than the son
05:55:34 <elliott> Oh, there's a spider here. Hi spider.
05:55:36 <quintopia> g
05:55:37 <oerjan> but brain transfers are so complicated
05:55:50 <elliott> quintopia: wow i think i remember small soldiers........
05:55:51 <cheater> you cannot.
05:55:53 <elliott> yes i do
05:55:56 <shachaf> elliott: Sorry, I'm deeply embedded in #haskell-blah as my off-topic channel of choice.
05:55:59 <shachaf> Sadly cheater is in there too.
05:56:12 <oerjan> "sadly"
05:56:18 <elliott> shachaf: He's quieter in here. Just sayin', we have benefits.
05:56:25 <elliott> And a great retirement plan, too.
05:56:36 <shachaf> elliott: On the other hand you talk about esoteric languages all the time.
05:56:40 <quintopia> elliott: you remember it existing or you remember the movie itself? if the latter, my many condolences.
05:56:45 <shachaf> elliott: In #haskell-blah, C++ is considered an esolang.
05:56:45 <elliott> shachaf: That...
05:56:52 <elliott> shachaf: Where on earth did you get the perception that we tend to be on-topic?
05:56:58 <elliott> Apart from my Shiro babbling which is more about the Haskell.
05:57:10 <elliott> quintopia: A little bit of both.
05:58:24 <monqy> is haskell-blah good
05:58:50 <elliott> It lacks the Holder of the Rightness.
05:59:04 <monqy> worst chanel
06:02:04 * shachaf wonders if #esoteric-blah etnds to talk about esoteric languages.
06:02:18 <elliott> #esoteric-blah is usually used for botspam.
06:02:21 <elliott> Or at least it was, years ago.
06:02:37 <elliott> -ChanServ- 1 freenode-staff +voOtsriRfAF [modified 2 years, 12 weeks, 4 days, 20:53:47 ago]
06:02:40 <elliott> Also freenode stole it off me?
06:02:43 <elliott> Jerks.
06:03:20 <shachaf> Your nick has only been registered for <a year.
06:03:32 <elliott> shachaf: Yes, because I only got it back then.
06:03:58 <oerjan> elliott: i think #esoteric was changed to freenode-staff too
06:04:00 <quintopia> shachaf: he has been named "elliott" for like 16 some-odd years though. fun fact.
06:04:09 <elliott> shachaf: Previously I had it for ages, then someone managed to steal it off me (with some kind of bot, said the freenode staffer; I'm not sure I buy that).
06:04:22 <elliott> But now it is back to its rightful owner, me.
06:04:29 <elliott> All other elliotts can just suffer.
06:04:35 <monqy> cable
06:04:36 <quintopia> i miss alise
06:04:39 <monqy> elliottt
06:04:39 <shachaf> Not elliottt!
06:04:44 <elliott> Elliotttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttt.
06:04:47 <elliott> That's me.
06:04:50 <shachaf> elliottt is the best of all the elliots.
06:04:52 <monqy> elliotttcable
06:05:05 <elliott> I wonder whether I should try and sell this to elliotttcable again.
06:05:08 <monqy> are there any other elliottts
06:05:09 <elliott> He seemed quite willing to buy.
06:05:19 <elliott> He didn't seem to like the sound of five hundred dollars though.
06:05:48 <shachaf> Ask for bitcoins.
06:05:54 <shachaf> It's the way of the future.
06:06:08 <elliott> I'm not sure his political leanings are aligned with that.
06:06:09 <quintopia> 65 btc
06:06:32 <elliott> (Though I certainly don't claim to understand the American right-wing.)
06:08:06 <elliott> I wonder who the richest bitcoiner is, in terms of bitcoins.
06:08:15 <elliott> That should be calculable from the public data, I think.
06:10:04 <elliott> Also: Does nobody care about any actually interesting alternative currencies now that Bitcoin is so big? I haven't seen anyone mention Ripple in years.

06:13:28 <quintopia> so bitcoin is not actually interesting? i think "catching on enough to work" is damn interesting.
06:14:22 <elliott> FSVO work. Anyway, it's essentially a digital gold standard, which is incredibly boring.
06:14:55 <elliott> "Everyone agrees that this scarce but useless resource is incredibly valuable, feels smugly superior over fiat currencies for all eternity" is a yawn-inducing story.
06:17:15 <quintopia> the only reason i yawned is because you used the word yawn and seeing yawn in a sentence when you are in a yawny mood is automagically yawn-inducing despite the story actually being pretty cool and not boring at all yawn.
06:18:26 <elliott> So how do bitcoins fit into your post-apocalyptic libertarian paradise?
06:19:29 <quintopia> i'm going to collect a whole bunch of them and bury them on a private island where i will become benevolent dictator of Zombie-Free Land

06:34:32 <oerjan> i'm not convinced there is a faster one

06:35:13 <oerjan> hm
06:35:17 <elliott> foo [x] = ([], x); foo (x:xs) = let (xs',y) = foo xs in (x:xs',y)
06:35:18 <elliott> that's ugly though
06:36:06 <elliott> actually it's (reverse (init xs), last xs) but I doubt that can be optimised more
06:36:19 <elliott> foo [x] = ([], x); foo (x:xs) = let (xs',y) = foo xs in (xs'++[x],y)
06:36:56 <oerjan> elliott: um of course that can duh
06:37:09 <elliott> how?
06:37:11 <oerjan> (reverse (init xs), last xs) is tail recursive
06:37:23 <elliott> um hmm

You have to drive through an extremely challenging track and play well enough to achieve a high score. Enemy cars in the game are extremely dangerous. They will try to slam into your car and inflict serious damages, so be a bit careful.
08:36:31 <monqy> sounds extreme
08:36:38 <monqy> and u
08:36:38 <elliott> "be a bit careful" is definitely the best part.
08:36:38 <monqy> h
08:36:40 <monqy> thrilling
08:36:46 <elliott> Not too careful. Just a bit.
08:37:37 <monqy> so i'm considering using not using a typeclass for this thing but I'm afraid it would get messier
08:37:42 <elliott> what is the thing
08:37:55 <elliott> typeclasses are never the answer don't do it n;o
08:38:02 <elliott> (Typeclasses are sometimes the ansewr.)
08:38:22 <monqy> it would probably be better to use a normal record but...mess...
08:38:30 <elliott> what is it
08:39:14 <monqy> i want multiple ui ends for a thing and the signature is right now a typeclass
08:39:41 <elliott> today on esoteric: monqy attempts to be as vague as possible so that nobody can help him
08:39:48 <monqy> exactly
08:40:05 <elliott> would you have to create a new dummy type just so you can make an instance
08:40:06 <elliott> like
08:40:08 <elliott> data Gtk
08:40:10 <elliott> instance UI Gtk where ...
08:40:14 <monqy> yes that's what i'm doing right now
08:40:17 <elliott> yeah no
08:40:19 <elliott> make it a record
08:40:25 <monqy> is there any way to clean it up
08:40:29 <elliott> make it a record
08:40:32 <monqy> i mean
08:40:34 <monqy> clean record
08:40:39 <elliott> how is it not clean
08:42:08 <monqy> hard to describe :(
08:43:06 <elliott> monqy: show class
08:43:44 <monqy> its incomplete :( I'm just worried about having to pass the record around everywhere in the cases where the type system would do it if it's a class??
08:43:54 <monqy> like theres
08:43:59 <monqy> the first three lines
08:44:00 <monqy> class UI a where type Key a :: * getKey :: IO (Key a)
08:44:04 <monqy> oh no it got condensed
08:44:07 <monqy> into one line
08:44:10 <monqy> when i pasted it
08:44:26 <elliott> monqy: since you have to do
08:44:28 <elliott> data Gtk
08:44:33 <elliott> instance UI Gtk where ...
08:44:39 <elliott> monqy: you would have to pass around the dummy Gtk value _anyway_
08:45:01 <elliott> what's with the Key thing though, sounds like you could eliminate that
08:45:32 <monqy> the next line might explain it
08:45:33 <monqy> a bit
08:45:36 <monqy> keyToCommand :: Key a -> Command
08:46:02 <monqy> e.g. hscurses represents keys differently than gtk??
08:46:09 * elliott diagnoses you with overcomplicating it syndrome
08:46:12 <monqy> :(
08:46:16 <monqy> what should i do help
08:46:20 <elliott> since you can't examine values of (Key a) except via the other methods
08:46:23 <elliott> you don't need it at all
08:46:27 <elliott> for instance that class is equivalent to
08:46:33 <elliott> class UI a where getKey :: IO Command
08:46:38 <elliott> (note lack of "a" occurring because it's dummy)
08:46:39 <elliott> so
08:46:43 <elliott> data UI = UI { getKey :: IO Command }
08:46:47 <elliott> obviously a key can do somewhat more maybe
08:46:58 <elliott> but that's fine, just define an abstract key type that would be all the class methods taking (Key a)
08:47:05 <elliott> data Key = Key { keyName :: String, keyCommand :: Command }
08:47:09 <elliott> data UI = UI { getKey :: IO Key }
08:47:16 <elliott> suddenly clean
08:47:51 <monqy> the reason i had it that way was becuase i was afraid of the pattern (keyToCommand <$> getKey) because i am irrational fears
08:48:19 <elliott> how does that help you avoid that pattern?
08:48:23 <elliott> that gives you that pattern exactly
08:48:26 <elliott> that's the only way to use yours
08:48:52 <elliott> but yeah seriously, the point is that your library can never examine the (Key a) values, so it's identical, from your point of view, to a record that contains the results of every function you could apply to it, from the class
08:48:58 <monqy> i think i was thinking defining it generally for UI a?? i'll simplify it anyway
08:49:05 <elliott> and if you create that record, you'll realise that you never actually use the a in UI
08:49:09 <elliott> and it can be a trivial data type
08:50:05 <monqy> well there are other parts too...and i'm afraid if i simplify all of them i'll lose valauble things...or have to duplicate more code than with that example
08:50:35 <monqy> ending up making the sad empty type anyway and type families
08:50:50 <elliott> monqy: http://sprunge.us/gDXW
08:51:01 <elliott> monqy: "lose valuable things" <-- how can you? the translation is literally an isomorphism
08:51:19 <elliott> it is impossible to lose anything because everything you could do with the overcomplicated, awkward design is possible with the data type design
08:51:45 * elliott transformed a typeclass over a dummy empty type with type families into a two-element data type with no existentials in Shiro and it helped things massively
08:54:38 <elliott> monqy: basically if you use the version which requires: a dummy empty data type being passed around everywhere; pointless type families; more compliacted error messages; longer code to implement a UI
08:54:41 <CakeProphet> this debug output is getting pretty furious.
08:54:57 <elliott> monqy: over the identical-in-the-literally-identical-sense, simple record types that cannot possibly longer your code
08:54:58 <elliott> then the bear
08:55:00 <elliott> of hope
08:55:01 <elliott> will be sad
08:55:03 <monqy> :(
08:55:12 <monqy> i;m going to use the records one don;t worry
08:55:32 <monqy> right now i am just being sad about not thinking of useing more records than one; _;
08:55:33 <elliott> IM WORRYING
08:55:41 <CakeProphet> typeclasses are still useful if you want other data types to interface with your code easily.
08:55:46 <elliott> monqy: IT IS OK I HAD TO UNLEARN IT TOO
08:55:57 <elliott> CakeProphet: That's... well, it's a sentence.
08:56:34 <elliott> monqy: I think the hardest part of Haskell is forcing yourself to not try anything fancy at all ever until you try functions and data types.
08:57:15 <CakeProphet> for example, Ord is nice to have because you can just pass your types into any Ord-accepting function, instead of wrapping it in some ord structure.
08:57:44 <elliott> typeclasses are not completely useless? WOW REALLY :P
08:57:57 <monqy> is cakeprohpet aware of the context i suspect not.....
08:57:58 <CakeProphet> ...yes I'm just discussing HOW they are useful. :P
08:58:20 <CakeProphet> not the specific problem no. Just that you guys are talking about typeclasses and data types being isomorphic.
08:58:41 <elliott> please...you have no idea what the context is at all stop... taking things we say out of context and trying to disprove them
08:58:56 <CakeProphet> .......I am not trying to disprove anything?
08:59:12 <CakeProphet> there's nothing to disprove.
08:59:29 <monqy> then why are you saying
08:59:29 <monqy> things
08:59:48 <CakeProphet> to like, I dunno, talk about it in detail?
09:00:01 <CakeProphet> I wasn't aware this was #esoteric-debate
09:00:03 <monqy> it's funny because that wasn't what we were talking about
09:00:22 <monqy> also: since when wasn't it???
09:01:33 <CakeProphet> since always?
09:02:26 * CakeProphet does not say things on this channel with the intent of always refuting or proving someone else wrong.
09:05:09 <CakeProphet> in any case, elliott mentioned that typeclasses can be translated to ADT and that in many cases it simplifies the design. I was providing an example of where the opposite is true. That's... pretty much all.
09:05:16 <elliott> i never mentioned that sorry
09:05:20 <elliott> i was talking about one specific case
09:05:26 <elliott> exists =/= forall
09:05:38 <CakeProphet> "in many cases" =/= forall
09:05:48 <elliott> never said that
09:06:56 <CakeProphet> okay fine.

09:13:05 <CakeProphet> I assume the reason they're up there is because elliott's number keys are broken.
09:13:25 <CakeProphet> but maybe 9 and 0 work fine.
09:13:35 <elliott> they do
09:13:43 <monqy> why doesn't 0 on the left of 1 anyway
09:13:46 <monqy> this has bugged me forever

09:14:19 * CakeProphet never uses the numpad
09:14:22 <monqy> what
09:14:25 <monqy> neither do I
09:14:27 <monqy> how is it relevant
09:14:33 <CakeProphet> maybe if I were like an accountant or something
09:14:37 <CakeProphet> and punched in numbers all day.
09:14:39 <CakeProphet> to a spreadsheet
09:14:41 <CakeProphet> then I might adopt it.
09:15:08 <monqy> that sounds like hell
09:15:40 -!- Patashu has joined.
09:15:42 <CakeProphet> it's not too different from what programmers do...
09:15:54 <elliott> it's not too different from what programmers like you do, maybe
09:16:01 <CakeProphet> except we have to think about what we're typing.
09:16:22 <monqy> thinking a smaller difference than typing is a similarity
09:16:27 <monqy> the wonderful world of hell
09:17:42 <CakeProphet> elliott: I'm not really sure that makes any sense, but I don't really appreciate it either.
09:18:30 <elliott> Well, if you think programming is like that, you can't be doing very interesting programming.
09:18:51 <CakeProphet> it's similar in that you are confined to one place typing for hours
09:18:55 <CakeProphet> is basically what I was saying.
09:19:28 <monqy> but that's not the hellish part
09:19:30 <CakeProphet> programming is interesting. why else would I be here?
09:20:02 <monqy> programming is usually fairly awful, things not doing what I want them to do
09:20:12 <CakeProphet> monqy: programming can be its own special hell. :)
09:20:30 <monqy> that's when people make me do things I don't want to do
09:20:38 <CakeProphet> right.
09:20:59 <monqy> people intentionally vague, _perhaps not vague enough_
09:21:05 <CakeProphet> but if you have a degree of pain tolerance, then even that sort of programming can be enjoyable.
09:21:13 <monqy> ahahahah no
09:21:47 <CakeProphet> have fun making money then...
09:21:58 <monqy> I'm scared of that
09:22:11 <CakeProphet> it's really not so bad, you just can't be so stingy. :P
09:22:24 <monqy> I guess there might be a sort of joy in some cases, but it is a very bad joy
09:22:50 <CakeProphet> there's always academia I suppose.
09:23:11 <CakeProphet> if you have the money or the welfare state for that.
09:23:22 <monqy> academia scares me too
09:23:39 <CakeProphet> why's that?
09:23:43 <monqy> reasons
09:23:48 <CakeProphet> ah.
09:24:26 <CakeProphet> monqy: well, then there's always doing something amazing that makes you rich or at least somewhat well-off.
09:24:33 <CakeProphet> better start now.
09:24:44 <monqy> whats amazing
09:24:54 <CakeProphet> ...if I knew I would be working on it. :P
09:27:24 <CakeProphet> monqy: well if you go into academia you could always design a language or something.
09:27:35 <monqy> instant money
09:27:42 <CakeProphet> well, sure.
09:27:47 <CakeProphet> enough money to live off of.
09:27:50 <monqy> would it be a good language
09:27:58 <CakeProphet> I dunno, would it?
09:28:03 <monqy> would it be new and exciting and fresh
09:28:13 <CakeProphet> presumably
09:28:23 <monqy> would it solve problems
09:28:23 <CakeProphet> the idea with academia is that you produce original research.
09:28:35 <monqy> I'm afraid of not being cool enough for that
09:28:53 <monqy> I'm also afraid of parts of academia that aren't that
09:29:00 <Patashu> if you know of something that makes you think 'surely there's a better way!'
09:29:05 <Patashu> and you feel strongly about it
09:29:06 <Patashu> go into academia
09:29:16 <monqy> now i have to go into academia
09:29:40 <CakeProphet> well it's that develop practical software of some kind.
09:29:43 <CakeProphet> +or
09:29:58 <CakeProphet> or find a different source of income and program as a hobby.
09:30:24 <monqy> everything is terrible
09:30:30 <CakeProphet> nah
09:30:36 <monqy> maybe i will make a living off of being dead
09:30:48 <CakeProphet> .....
09:31:14 <CakeProphet> maybe this guy will allow me to use him as a reference, so that I can get a better paying job.
09:31:23 <CakeProphet> instead of my current zero work experience state.
09:31:41 <monqy> work experience terrifies me
09:32:01 <CakeProphet> you can use open source experience on a resume, if you're worried about how to get started.
09:32:17 <CakeProphet> or freelance work, which is the route I'm going.
09:38:37 <shachaf> Yo elliawtt, I heard u mad, so I put all the things in your things, so u can mad while u mad?
09:40:01 <elliott> shachaf: It's ok; now _you_ hate yourself.
09:40:23 <shachaf> elliott: No, as a matter of fact, I'm rather pleased with myself.
09:40:37 <elliott> For now, maybe.
09:40:45 <shachaf> ...I suppose that's not strictly disjoin from self-hatred.
09:40:51 <elliott> But eventually, you will feel the virus inside you. You will realise the horror you have caused.
09:40:52 <shachaf> Endohatred.
09:41:01 <elliott> And it will evaporate your sense of self-worth.
09:41:07 <shachaf> u mad?
09:41:11 <elliott> Or at least this is what _should_ happen to people who say u mad.
09:41:23 <shachaf> u mad!
09:41:29 <shachaf> Wow, you're right. It's happening already.
09:41:33 <Patashu> 'u mad' is possibly the worst internet meme
09:42:03 <Patashu> unless someone knows of a meme more engineered towards debate ending
09:42:07 <Patashu> /poisoning
09:42:21 <cheater> u mad?
09:42:38 <Patashu> a little
09:42:39 * shachaf realizes he's brought himself down to cheater's level.
09:42:41 * shachaf mad
09:42:48 <cheater> shachaf, u mad?
09:43:19 <elliott> shachaf: Enjoy your self-destruction.
09:43:25 <elliott> u mad?
09:43:31 <elliott> AARGH IT'S SPREAD
09:43:34 * shachaf will take elliott down with him.
09:43:42 * cheater burns corpses
09:43:45 <elliott> WE ALL MAD
09:43:47 <elliott> WE ALL MAD!!!
09:43:49 * shachaf mad, I tell you, mad!
09:43:50 <cheater> no u
09:43:55 <cheater> NO U
09:44:18 <cheater> < totally not mad. you sai i'm mad? u mad? aargghhgh
09:44:25 <shachaf> elliott: What's your localtime?
09:44:33 <elliott> shachaf: mad:mad
09:44:41 <elliott> Mad mad mad mad, u, mad u, mad mad.
09:44:41 <cheater> +MAD,))
09:44:45 <cheater> +MAD,00.
09:45:26 <elliott> Well, we're reaching new heights of discourse here.
09:45:35 <elliott> If height is measured by seeing how low something's sunk.
09:45:40 <cheater> thank you shachaf for this interesting experience.
09:46:07 <shachaf> Universal mutually assured destruction.
09:46:18 <shachaf> u mad?
09:46:34 * cheater fights the urge.
09:46:47 <monqy> hi
09:46:49 <monqy> i'm back from
09:46:51 <elliott> I wonder if there's a meme so bad that it literally does cause complete mental breakdown in anyone who uses it, but spreads so rapidly that they use it anyway.

09:47:38 <shachaf> Religion is in many ways beneficial to its host.
09:47:49 <elliott> Note the "joke" part of "oblig. joke answer" :P
09:48:01 -!- Jafet has joined.
09:48:02 <ais523> religion does wonders in activating the placebo effect
09:48:20 <elliott> Hello ais523, u mad this fine day?
09:48:23 <CakeProphet> elliott: hey I disagree with your very serious answer.
09:48:23 <elliott> Oh god it's unstoppable.
09:48:32 <elliott> It's like a rash. I must rip off all my skin.
09:48:33 <cheater> as well as in unifying the masses by limiting their potential severely
09:48:37 <ais523> incidentally, there was an experiment recently in which people with irritable bowel syndrome were given placebos, and told they were placebos but would work anyway
09:48:40 <ais523> and they did indeed work anyway
09:48:49 <Patashu> haha
09:48:54 <monqy> elliott: maybe this...is your answer...
09:48:57 <Patashu> I love the placebo effect
09:49:12 <ais523> the scientists running the experiment were pretty surprised
09:49:18 <cheater> ais523, irritable bowel has a strong psychological element though
09:49:19 <ais523> perhaps the participants just didn't know what a placebo was
09:49:20 <shachaf> ais523: Did they test this by using a control group and giving them placebos?
09:49:21 <elliott> I wish the placebo effect worked for really useful things.
09:49:25 <elliott> shachaf: Hahaha
09:49:28 <ais523> cheater: it does, that's why they were testing on that
09:49:31 <cheater> it's not like it would cure a bacterial infection i think
09:49:35 <elliott> Like, curing cancer by placebo.
09:49:38 <elliott> That would be really useful.
09:49:40 <ais523> shachaf: tests /of/ the placebo effect typically are compared to not using anything at all
09:49:41 <CakeProphet> elliott: perhaps one could treat air as a placebo
09:49:53 <elliott> CakeProphet: One could do that, if one were trying to make no sense at all.
09:49:55 <CakeProphet> elliott: and then breathing automatically invokes a placebo effect of whatever desired.
09:50:02 <shachaf> ais523: Note the "joke" part of elliott's "oblig. joke answer" above.
09:50:05 <cheater> i'm sure you've you seen children in africa with stomachs full of air
09:50:14 <elliott> shachaf: Does that enable joke mode for the rest of eternity?
09:50:21 <shachaf> elliott: Just for this channel.
09:50:25 <shachaf> So no harm done.
09:50:25 <ais523> shachaf: I'm not discussing elliott's answer
09:50:28 <elliott> Well, that's been on since the start.
09:50:31 <shachaf> ais523: Nor am I.
09:50:43 <shachaf> Hey, you're ais523 from #nethack.
09:50:50 <elliott> No, really?
09:50:51 <cheater> i have a leftover slicehost VPS. can i use it to run DF?
09:50:53 <ais523> so the fact that elliott made a joke doesn't cause everything said after that in the channel to be humour value only
09:50:56 <elliott> There's so many ais523s going around.
09:51:02 <CakeProphet> elliott: it makes just as much sense as a sugar pill creating a placebo effect...
09:51:07 <monqy> I saw an ais523 over there too
09:51:09 <monqy> that way
09:51:14 <shachaf> Do you know toft?
09:51:16 * shachaf knows toft.
09:51:20 <ais523> shachaf: luckily both channels are on Freenode, so it's kind-of easy to verify I'm the same ais523 in each case
09:51:22 <cheater> german author

09:51:27 <ais523> and I know of toft, but haven't interacted with him/her much
09:51:36 <shachaf> Oh.
09:52:25 <shachaf> At any rate, I, too, was making a joke.
09:52:33 <shachaf> preflex isn't in this channel. :-(
09:52:39 * shachaf mad
09:52:52 <elliott> Nor is mauke. Get him back.
09:52:53 <elliott> They used to be.
09:52:55 <ais523> elliott: hey, I think shachaf may be someone who can be placed in a channel with both you and Vorpal and all three of you won't get each other's jokes
09:52:57 <elliott> Does preflex follow mauke around everywhere?
09:52:59 <elliott> Like a pet.
09:53:06 <elliott> An IRC pet bot. That's adorable.
09:53:17 * ais523 pats fungot on the head
09:53:17 <fungot> ais523: 6. as seen above, any attempt to insert them. user:thatsothatso 01:29, 18 september 2006 ( utc
09:53:31 <monqy> I used to have a pet bot, but then it died, because i killed it
09:53:32 <ais523> hmm, looks like it's in wikipedia mode
09:53:33 <elliott> fungot's chained to a stick because of its volatile nature.
09:53:33 <fungot> elliott: it has come under criticism for it. --user:ghcoolghcool 06:15, 28 november 2007 ( utc)))
09:53:40 <elliott> That stick is #esoteric.
09:53:48 <monqy> isn't fungot in other channels too
09:53:49 <fungot> monqy: there seems to be about wilson, but there are many points worth mentioning that eisenhower was facing fnord that november and wanted everything looking smooth and fnord. i have created the universe. though buddhas are skillful in helping all fnord beings, their power is limited by the fnord and the fnord.
09:53:59 <CakeProphet> monqy: if only there were some way to check.
09:54:03 <ais523> haha, the sigs don't get fnorded?
09:54:11 <ais523> presumably because they're repeated so much
09:54:21 <CakeProphet> ^style europarl
09:54:21 <fungot> Selected style: europarl (European Parliament speeches during approx. 1996-2006)
09:54:25 <monqy> I think fungot is in #scheme? I remember I visited there and fungot was therE??
09:54:25 <fungot> monqy: unfair practice occurs when an airline that has made the european parliament around two years ago, the sequence of responses is correct.
09:54:26 <shachaf> ais523: Who's Vorpal?
09:54:37 <CakeProphet> channels : #esoteric
09:54:42 <elliott> shachaf: A monster... of boringness... and despair.
09:54:43 <CakeProphet> monqy: not currently
09:54:44 <monqy> whois doesn't work like that
09:54:44 <ais523> someone who typically idles in this channel
09:54:47 <ais523> although he isn't here atm
09:54:48 <elliott> Or that, yes.
09:54:56 <monqy> CakeProphet: whois doesn't work like that here
09:55:09 <CakeProphet> oh, hmmm...
09:55:11 <CakeProphet> indeed not.
09:55:12 <ais523> elliott and Vorpal are known for not understanding the other's brand of humour
09:55:21 <elliott> I _understand_ Vorpal's, it just isn't funny.
09:55:23 <CakeProphet> monqy: I recall previous times whois would show me all channels.
09:55:25 <elliott> Vorpal is the one who goes eh a lot. :p
09:55:28 <shachaf> elliott: Example?
09:55:35 <monqy> do I go eh a lot
09:55:40 <CakeProphet> eh.
09:55:47 <elliott> shachaf: I, um, do you know AnMaster? I am really having trouble explaining Vorpal, I mean, a priori.
09:55:53 <shachaf> elliott: It sounds to me like u just mad
09:56:00 <elliott> I just the maddest.
09:56:08 <monqy> dead
09:56:09 * shachaf is not familiar with AnMaster
09:56:14 * CakeProphet has the best humor of all.
09:56:16 <elliott> Darn, so you don't know him at all.
09:56:24 <elliott> You will just have to... imagine.
09:56:30 <monqy> i have the humour trohpy
09:56:32 <elliott> ais523: Explain Vorpal to shachaf or he might mad.
09:56:40 <ais523> elliott: I tried
09:56:42 <shachaf> elliott: You ought to go to sleep.
09:56:46 <monqy> "good at jkoe"
09:57:02 <elliott> "good at jkoe" is a good motto.
09:57:08 <elliott> Is it a motto? I'm not sure what it is.
09:57:08 <shachaf> Good at jkoe and doesn't afraid of anything?
09:57:18 <monqy> thats me
09:57:26 <monqy> it says so on my the humour trohpy
09:57:40 <CakeProphet> I think Vorpal is a pretty cool guy. eh tells jokes and doesn't afraid of anything.
09:58:08 * shachaf hates jokes.
09:58:11 <shachaf> Is that a good start>
09:58:14 <shachaf> s/.$/?/
09:58:33 <elliott> shachaf: Sounds like u might be a tad mad.
09:58:47 <elliott> This is really quite liberating, just being a horrible person.
09:58:53 <shachaf> elliott: Go to sleep.
09:59:01 * shachaf assumes elliott lives in EDT.
09:59:09 <monqy> I'm horrible in my own special way, or maybe someone else's way too, I haven't bothered to check
09:59:16 <elliott> Assumptions are great things.
09:59:27 * CakeProphet lives in EDT and NEEDS NO SLEEP
09:59:29 <CakeProphet> no such thing.
09:59:43 <CakeProphet> 6 AM is afternoon for me.
09:59:54 <elliott> What even _are_ timezones, anyway?
10:00:02 <CakeProphet> standards.
10:00:03 <elliott> I ask the questions on everyone's minds.
10:00:08 <shachaf> You know that yellow blob in the sky?
10:00:19 * shachaf worries that he's using words unfamiliar to elliott.
10:00:26 <elliott> You mean... eggs?
10:00:31 <shachaf> Right. Eggs.
10:00:38 <elliott> Okay, eggs.
10:00:57 <monqy> how do ehggs in the sky
10:01:03 <monqy> is that how where you live works
10:01:08 <shachaf> Just the yolks, yo.
10:01:30 <shachaf> So egg yolks float around in the sky, and sometimes they disappear.
10:01:37 <shachaf> When they disappear, we call that "breakfast" or "morning".
10:01:44 <elliott> Yes. I have, at times, been sufficiently sleep-deprived to imagine such things.
10:01:46 <shachaf> Then we're awake until they come back.
10:01:53 <elliott> Thank god for the great frying pan in the sky.
10:01:55 <shachaf> And that's what a time zone is.
10:01:58 <monqy> I tend not to hallucinate
10:02:11 * shachaf hallucinates lovely classical music when he's tired.
10:02:21 <monqy> maybe I just haven't deprived myself enough
10:02:37 <CakeProphet> yop\\\
10:02:39 <elliott> I suggest fasting.
10:02:43 <elliott> Also, slowing.
10:02:44 <monqy> good idea
10:03:10 <CakeProphet> !wacro 3 5
10:03:12 <EgoBot> MCW
10:03:15 <monqy> wacro
10:03:27 <monqy> miserable crummy wacro
10:03:45 <CakeProphet> MCW is a perfectly believable acronym.
10:03:45 <elliott> Now that I know how to use Perl's C API, maybe I'll make mcmap use it as its embedded language.
10:03:46 <elliott> Note: I won't.
10:04:04 <CakeProphet> elliott: you definitely should.
10:04:27 <CakeProphet> And because you won't what you should, you are unethical.
10:04:36 <elliott> I won't what I should
10:04:43 <CakeProphet> correct.
10:05:19 <shachaf> elliott: You should come to #haskell-blah, yo.
10:05:26 <shachaf> We make fun of people who aren't us.
10:05:37 <monqy> sounds like a cool place
10:05:45 <elliott> Hmm, the last time I did that cheater got banned.
10:05:48 <elliott> Sure, I'll give it a shot.
10:05:48 <Patashu> the only moral tribalism is my tribalism
10:06:03 <monqy> banned?????
10:06:13 <CakeProphet> :o
10:06:17 <monqy> were you naughty
10:06:22 <monqy> :'(
10:06:33 <elliott> monqy: Yes, I was so naughty that they banned someone who isn't me.
10:06:42 <elliott> Whereby they I mean oerjan.
10:06:52 <monqy> oh I misread
10:06:57 <monqy> maybe you can ban cheater again
10:07:05 <CakeProphet> elliott has been established to be naughty from his lack of regard for Perl's C API suggestions to use macros in place of direct function calls.
10:07:12 <CakeProphet> shameful and tasteless, honestly.

11:17:44 <brisingr> so #esoteric is like a secondary #haskell-blah
11:18:23 <monqy> from my perspective it's the other way around
11:18:38 <elliott> These statements are true as of approximately half an hour ago when we all invaded there.
11:18:50 <elliott> Also we keep getting people from #haskell.
11:19:04 <elliott> But #haskell doesn't have, uh, ais523. And oerjan. And oerjan wrote most of the Haskell report by himself!
11:19:12 <elliott> In fact, most refer to him as the TRUE father of Haskell.
11:19:24 <Deewiant> For small values of "most".
11:19:39 <elliott> Those typo fixes were crucial, Deewiant.
11:19:40 <elliott> Crucial.

12:40:03 <ais523> that's quite the cloak
12:40:04 <ais523> I like it
12:40:19 <DH____> Heh
12:40:27 <ais523> presumably it's some encoding scheme for the underscores
12:40:41 <ais523> it reminds me a bit of utf-5, although it isn't exactly that
12:41:25 <ais523> DH____: /whoising yourself is a more direct way to make sure it worked
12:42:21 <DH____> Well, given the channel theme, it shouldn't be hard for someone here to reverse engineer it...
12:42:27 <DH____> Thanks
12:43:13 <ais523> well, translating 6288474 to hex would seem to be a good start
12:43:21 <ais523> !c printf("%x",6288474)
12:43:25 <EgoBot> 5ff45a
12:43:33 <ais523> hmm, that doesn't seem to help much
12:43:42 <ais523> (also, interesting that EgoBot doesn't seem to need a semicolon there)
12:44:02 <ais523> perhaps it's not an encoding scheme but just a random number there for uniquifying purposes
12:44:12 <DH____> Possibly
12:44:42 <elliott> probably
12:45:09 <DH____> Maybe I'm the nth person to have underscores in their nick...
12:45:43 <ais523> the 523 in my nick's a random number for uniquifying purposes too
12:47:21 <ais523> hmm, I still want to get round to that language some time where the source code is just a number
12:47:44 <ais523> and the interp looks on anagolf for the problem with that number, then takes majority opinion of the programs not marked as cheats
12:48:11 <ais523> giving extra weight to ones specifically marked as not-cheating, I suppose
12:48:35 <elliott> what about endless problems that don't reveal src?
12:48:40 <elliott> like most popular ones
12:48:44 <DH____> Doesn't unary only use a number?
12:48:53 <ais523> elliott: I, umm, don't know
12:48:54 -!- azaq23 has joined.
12:48:58 <ais523> DH____: yes, but it's a pretty /big/ number
12:49:17 <ais523> the idea here would be to have astonishingly small programs for a range of popular programs
12:49:30 <ais523> I suppose for the endless ones, we just hire elliott or someone to do reference impls
12:50:15 <elliott> heh
12:50:27 <ais523> you'd be good at them!
12:51:03 <DH____> You could use DMM's WebPEG encoding on the source...
12:52:09 <DH____> Leaving a 20 byte source file or so...
12:55:11 <ais523> that's a /different/ creative way to cheat
12:57:20 <elliott> ais523: we need sg soon; git is driving me insane
12:58:02 <ais523> what are you using to version sg itself while it's being written, incidentally?
12:58:32 <elliott> nothing? :) or darcs I guess
12:58:36 <ais523> presumably it's not yet complete enough to version itself
12:58:47 <ais523> darcs seems to be the least-bad VCS that isn't vaporware
12:58:57 <Deewiant> Write the sg repository by hand as you go until it can do it by itself
12:58:58 <elliott> or, /maybe/ git, in case we think we might want other people to interact with the repo via github, although you'd be a major stopper to that
12:59:25 <ais523> meh, I'd just maintain a mirror on gitorious and refuse to acknowledge the github repo existed except when I pulled from it
12:59:27 <elliott> the main problem with darcs is that the only decent places to put the repository involve hosting it yourself, and darcsweb is rather... uninspiring
12:59:27 <ais523> that's what I normally do
12:59:40 <ais523> elliott: I would mention patch-tag, but you said decent
12:59:49 <ais523> it's, umm, passable
12:59:51 <ais523> sometimes
12:59:55 <elliott> ais523: You could do that gitorious thing, but I would be far too lazy to pull your changes
13:00:12 <ais523> pulling isn't that hard...
13:00:19 <elliott> Harder than having someone else push for you
13:00:48 <ais523> you can't push into a repo with working changes anyway
13:00:55 <ais523> which is the usual state of a repo someone's directly working on
13:00:59 <ais523> so in practice, you have to pull anyway
13:01:32 <elliott> This is the thing where you're deliberately stupid to maintain your worldview and I ignore you, right?
13:01:47 <ais523> not this time
13:02:00 <elliott> You realise that the repositories you push to are not usually repositories with working directories?
13:02:01 <ais523> I can't think of any reasonable git workflow that doesn't involve pulling at all
13:02:08 <ais523> elliott: well, if you're too lazy to pull
13:02:14 <elliott> Well, sure, the person pushing has to pull
13:02:20 <ais523> then you wouldn't be pulling from any /other/ repo I push to
13:02:21 <elliott> Pull changes, merge in, push them off
13:02:27 <elliott> ais523: Har har
13:02:41 <ais523> so what you mean is, you're too lazy to pull from two repos at once
13:02:46 <ais523> despite the existence of git remote update
13:03:06 <elliott> What I really mean is, being awkward wrt the existence of a GitHub repository will cause me to try and be as awkward as possible in turn
13:04:08 <ais523> oh right, I didn't pick that up
13:04:39 <elliott> I'll probably end up versioning it in nothing for the longest time, anyway
13:05:02 <elliott> VCSes are too workflow-hostile for me to bother for a project still in its solo stage
13:05:17 <ais523> I find that what I do with a VCS is to use it more and more properly as time goes on
13:05:29 <ais523> starting off by just using it as a backup system rather than version control
13:05:40 <ais523> and gradually making the commits more and more the correct size
13:05:49 <elliott> I'm trying to do that for mcmap too, but mostly just because Deewiant complained
13:05:50 <ais523> (so the commits tend to get smaller and more numerous as time goes on)
13:06:01 <elliott> Being a good git citizen is really hard, because you have to do terrible things like modifying history
13:06:11 <elliott> nice global notice
13:06:35 <ais523> indeed
13:06:45 <ais523> I don't think it's possible to use git correctly
13:06:47 <elliott> ais523: Anyway, I honestly find cp -R src src.descriptivetag before embarking on a task more usable for solo, "linear" (as in generally one feature at a time) projects than any VCS
13:06:49 <ais523> even using it as intended causes problems
13:07:03 <ais523> elliott: heh, I've done that too, except I more usually use tarballs
13:07:17 <elliott> I have about ten of those for Shiro right now
13:07:23 <elliott> Holy crap, I somehow submitted a pull request... to my own repository.
13:07:24 <elliott> From itself.
13:07:35 <elliott> GitHub, I...
13:07:47 <ais523> accept it!
13:07:52 <elliott> "This pull request cannot be automatically merged."
13:07:54 <elliott> :'(
13:08:03 <elliott> I, umm, can't even delete it, I'll just have to close it

13:08:16 <elliott> ais523: it is semantically correct
13:08:18 <elliott> it's just insane
13:08:23 <elliott> It's a request from an older revision

13:08:41 <ais523> well, darcs would notice that the commits you were merging in were already in the repo, at least
13:08:43 -!- myndzi has joined.
13:08:54 <elliott> so? that's a nop
13:08:57 -!- yorick has joined.
13:09:38 <ais523> indeed
13:10:04 <ais523> I suppose you can say that a no-op pull request is technically semantically correct...
13:10:40 <elliott> The thing with VCSes is, I think, that almost everything they consider an error, I think should succeed
13:11:06 <elliott> Pushing when you don't have changes that have happened since? Sure, go ahead
13:11:21 <elliott> Basically errors are bad and make me sad. This is the way of elliott.
13:11:47 <ais523> indeed, I think pushing then should give a friendly reminder rather than an error
13:11:55 <elliott> But I like to think it's the VCS' job to sort out the tangle of noodles that is the development into something useful for me, not to force me into making sure they don't get into a tangle.
13:11:57 <ais523> (it's not an error in darcs, but has a tendency to cause exponential performance)
13:12:19 <ais523> actually, "friendly reminder" is pretty much exactly what darcs does
13:12:23 <elliott> ais523: in sg, I think it just creates a new, unnamed branch
13:12:28 <elliott> unless you did a lot of commits since
13:12:31 <elliott> in which case it'd probably become the new tip
13:12:34 <ais523> if you push before pulling, you get a "(By the way, the remote repository has 2 patches to pull.)", or whatever
13:12:53 <elliott> as in, either {it creates a new branch, tip stays the same} or {it becomes the tip, tip becomes a new branch} happens
13:12:54 -!- Zetro_ has joined.
13:12:58 <elliott> depending on which trail is longer
13:13:15 <elliott> well, that's assuming they conflict
13:13:28 <elliott> if they can be merged automatically, then they merge and become the new tip, just one with a split in the middle
13:13:32 <elliott> and that's the correct situation
13:13:35 <ais523> yep, and assuming that people haven't nicknamed a particular whitelist set as their own personal concept of the tip
13:13:50 <elliott> there's no personal concept of a tip; tip is an objective thing
13:13:53 <ais523> well, yes
13:13:54 <elliott> they can call something my-tip, though, I'm sure
13:14:00 <ais523> personal thing used instead of a tip?
13:14:03 <elliott> heh
13:14:06 <elliott> personal-thing-used-instead-of-a-tip
13:14:11 <elliott> good branch name
13:14:17 <ais523> ballpoint, perhaps
13:14:29 <elliott> I think the tip is literally just the longest self-consistent branch
13:14:47 <elliott> although, actually, that's not right
13:15:00 <elliott> because if you dump all the sg repos possible together into one massively infinite repository, it should have no tip
13:15:28 <elliott> what was your definition, again?
13:15:55 <ais523> I think it does have a tip, and it consists of the tips of each of the individual projects being worked on in the repos (identified by commits linking them to a common directory structure), in separate directory structures
13:16:10 <ais523> umm, commit is the wrong word there
13:16:14 <ais523> but you probably know what I mean
13:16:17 <elliott> ais523: a tip has to point to one directory structure, though
13:16:22 <elliott> the only way you can have multiple is by explicit nesting
13:16:37 <elliott> to me, you've pretty much described the situation of having no tip
13:16:40 <elliott> you have multiple viable tips
13:16:42 <elliott> so there is no tip
13:16:47 <elliott> you have to select one to work
13:17:00 <elliott> (and probably designate one quickly, likely moving them all into subdirectories of a new root)
13:17:01 <ais523> oh, you mean actually on your own personal filesystem?
13:17:05 <elliott> s/likely/likely by/
13:17:07 <ais523> that makes sense
13:17:10 <elliott> ais523: no, I'm talking about sg concepts
13:17:22 <ais523> well, a tip is just a set of patches
13:17:31 <ais523> and it's the maximal set of patches that combine without conflicts
13:17:36 <elliott> yep, but a set of patches can't result in having two directories without explicitly doing that
13:17:42 <ais523> why not?
13:17:49 <elliott> because there's no mechanism for that?
13:18:10 <ais523> I don't see why there's any mathematical reason that "two unrelated directories" is a concept that sg shouldn't be able to model, even if it's a little hard to place onto a filesystem
13:18:32 <elliott> because it doesn't fit into the existing model?
13:18:54 <ais523> and the mechanism is just having multiple new-directory «insert appropriate word that isn't turtle here»s that don't refer to each other and haven't been placed into a common directory structure by any other «same word»
13:19:03 <elliott> give me a patch that isn't self-conflicting and results in two directory trees, neither containing the other
13:19:19 <ais523> combination of {new directory} and {new directory}
13:19:36 <elliott> ais523: by combination of, you mean patchset, right?
13:19:39 <ais523> yep
13:19:52 <ais523> sorry, that should have been set of [{new directory}; {new directory}]
13:19:52 <elliott> ais523: there is no "new directory", there's "new directory in [HASH]"
13:19:59 <ais523> aha, that's possibly why I was confused
13:20:00 <elliott> (and a special root directory change)
13:20:03 <ais523> how do repos get started, then?
13:20:16 <elliott> ais523: repos initially contain one commit by the Ghost of Scapegoat
13:20:26 <ais523> that can be referred to to start off
13:20:27 <elliott> that commit is just the root directory change
13:20:35 <elliott> it has a single global hash worldwide
13:20:59 <ais523> ah, so if I combine {new directory in Ghost of Scapegoat} and {new directory in Ghost of Scapegoat} I get two parallel directories
13:21:08 <Gregor> And that hash is 0xDEFACED
13:21:09 <elliott> you need to specify a name for the directory :)
13:21:10 <ais523> that conflict if they have the same name, as you can't have multiple directories with the same name in one directory
13:21:20 <ais523> elliott: yes, I'm not writing out all the metadata
13:21:24 <elliott> changeset {new directory "foo" in root, new directory "bar" in root}
13:21:29 <ais523> yep
13:21:31 <elliott> that doesn't produce two unrelated filesystems
13:21:33 <elliott> that's just
13:21:38 <ais523> no, it produces two parallel filesystems
13:21:40 <elliott> no
13:21:42 <elliott> it's a directory
13:21:45 <elliott> with two empty directories in
13:21:48 <elliott> that's what you'd get if you cloned it
13:21:49 <ais523> well, right
13:21:52 <ais523> agreed
13:21:54 <elliott> s/cloned it/checked it out/
13:22:10 <elliott> ais523: the most you'd get is the directories of all the projects mushed together
13:22:14 <ais523> yep, I think so
13:22:17 <elliott> not in neatly separated unnamed hierarchies, that's not possible
13:22:34 <elliott> ais523: but really, the Infinite Repo should have no tip, not least because its commit changes go on literally forever
13:22:36 <ais523> hmm, it'd happen if we had a convention not to make sgbombs
13:22:48 <elliott> ais523: sgbombs are valuable
13:23:06 <elliott> hmm, wait, let me think
13:23:09 <ais523> in what way? I notice most existing VCSes don't allow them, but I'm prepared to be convinced that sg should
13:23:11 -!- twice11 has joined.
13:23:20 <elliott> all existing VCSes allow them
13:23:23 <elliott> they just clone into directories
13:23:29 <ais523> well, right
13:23:56 <elliott> ais523: I'm trying to think how you re-root a repository; as in, the old story of "two repositories, merge into one by copying objects, then move the root of one into a subdirectory of the other"
13:23:58 <ais523> so I suppose the question should be "can you commit files directly into the Ghost of Scapegoat"
13:24:09 <ais523> elliott: some sort of directory move patch, I guess
13:24:16 <ais523> reparent HASH from HASH to HASH
13:24:16 <elliott> it's a move change, but it's a move change on... the ghost of scapegoat?
13:24:18 <elliott> wait, no
13:24:22 <elliott> it's a move change on the.. hmm
13:24:25 <elliott> no, it's a move change on the ghost of scapegoat
13:24:27 <elliott> _that_ can't work
13:24:33 <elliott> because it's the root of the target repository, too
13:24:40 <ais523> oh, if you're trying to rotate the root under a new directory?
13:24:47 <ais523> yep, that's a good enough reason for it to have a unique hash
13:24:51 <elliott> ais523: basically, say you have repos foo and bar checked out
13:24:57 <elliott> you want to achieve the sg equivalent of
13:24:59 <elliott> mv foo bar/quux
13:25:02 <elliott> where bar/quux doesn't exist
13:25:23 <elliott> I, umm, don't think we can do that, right now, unless every new repo starts by creating a _new_ root directory
13:25:25 <Gregor> You cannot truly understand someone until you've walked a mile in their shoes. Since cats don't wear shoes, it is impossible to understand them.
13:25:30 <elliott> which just seems wrong for some reason
13:25:34 <ais523> pivot_root moves the root file system of the current process to the directory put_old and makes new_root the new root file system. Since pivot_root(8) simply calls pivot_root(2), we refer to the man page of the latter for further details.
13:25:37 <elliott> a repo shouldn't depend on when you create it
13:25:51 <elliott> ais523: I know what pivot_root is
13:25:53 <ais523> elliott: I assumed that repos would start by creating a new root directory, because it's the most obvious way to understand what a repo is
13:25:59 <ais523> elliott: I know, I just felt like quoting it
13:26:06 <elliott> ais523: I assumed they'd start by creating a file
13:26:10 <ais523> or, well, a related set of projects
13:26:19 <elliott> you can just move every file into a new subdirectory to pivot the root, but that makes merging hard
13:26:24 <elliott> because future files will end up in the root
13:26:25 <ais523> you can tell that two repos are working on the same project because they share an initial root dir commit
13:26:27 <elliott> rather than the pivoted root
13:26:40 <ais523> yep, I agree that that's semantically wrong
13:26:41 <elliott> I suppose the first commit you make can make a new directory called /
13:26:51 <elliott> but then what is the name of the directory made by the Ghost of Scapegoat?
13:27:00 <ais523> /../, obviously
13:27:02 <elliott> other pressing questions: does the Ghost of Scapegoat have a PGP key?
13:27:27 <elliott> ais523: I think it's actually just called the null string
13:27:35 <Gregor> Clearly the commit message associated with this root should be "Boo"
13:27:37 <elliott> obviously you can't create a file at foo.c (absolute path)
13:27:38 <ais523> but /../ is a much better name for the root dir's parent
13:27:39 <elliott> only /foo.c
13:27:41 <elliott> so you have to make / first
13:27:47 <elliott> the null string is behind it
13:27:50 <elliott> ais523: ugly
13:27:53 <ais523> well, OK
13:28:07 <ais523> I'm not entirely convinced it needs a name, maybe null-stringing it is the best option
13:28:08 <elliott> ais523: in fact, ideally the genesis commit (THIS IS THE WORST RELIGIOUS METAPHOR) should have no author field
13:28:13 <elliott> or date
13:28:24 <elliott> actually, it doesn't need any attributes at all
13:28:27 <ais523> (random fact: I once tried to get Wikipedia's Main Page renamed to the null string, but the developers refused to implement that even though it was getting some support)
13:28:34 -!- sebbu has quit (Ping timeout: 245 seconds).
13:28:40 <elliott> it's literally just the defined-by-construction object root-directory
13:28:41 -!- sebbu has joined.
13:28:45 <elliott> ais523: haha
13:29:17 <ais523> more commonly I tried to get it moved to the Portal namespace, and the opposition was mostly "it'll cause problems" without specifying how
13:29:40 <ais523> I suppose I'm one of the few people in the world who actually knows /how/ to rename Wikipedia's Main Page; it's not commonly-known knowledge
13:29:43 <Gregor> ais523: Clearly the main page should have "This is the main page of Wikipedia. For the notion of main pages in general, see Main Page (disambiguation)"
13:30:14 <ais523> (I know how to delete it too, but that requires overcoming well over ten separate safeguards, and the idea is that someone would likely notice you trying in time to stop you)
13:30:21 <elliott> I really want a famous band/author/whatever to release a work called Main Page
13:30:27 <elliott> Really, really, really
13:30:42 <ais523> Gregor: have you seen http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Talk:%25s
13:30:48 <ais523> (i.e. [[Talk:%s]])
13:30:58 <ais523> you might want to look at the history of [[%s]] itself, too
13:31:08 <ais523> hmm, bleh, they stopped arguing about it in 2009
13:31:24 <Gregor> ais523: ... WOW
13:31:44 <elliott> ais523: I can't believe people actually wanted to make it not redirect
13:31:45 <ais523> I knew it would blow your mind :)
13:31:49 <elliott> because %s is /such/ a popular topic to look up
13:32:19 <ais523> elliott: well, I wanted to make it not redirect on the basis that it was absurd that you'd /expect/ [[%s]] to redirect to the Main Page
13:32:40 <elliott> ais523: it's a page nobody will ever look up on their own, modulo rounding error
13:32:43 <ais523> and that it was only that way due to a bug in old versions of Firefox
13:33:09 <elliott> Yet "According to statistics, %s is the 993rd most visited page this month"
13:33:21 <elliott> It seems pretty clear-cut to me, the logic doesn't matter, usability does
13:33:40 <ais523> hmm, Firefox bug 298697 is still open
13:33:47 <ais523> https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=298697
13:33:52 <ais523> despite being over 6 years old
13:34:24 <ais523> do any other popular search engines special-case searches for %s, I wonder?
13:34:26 <elliott> Is it just me, or do bugzilla bugs never get fixed, ever?
13:34:26 <ais523> say, Google?
13:34:31 <ais523> elliott: they do sometimes
13:34:37 <elliott> https://encrypted.google.com/search?hl=en&source=hp&biw=1058&bih=636&q=%25s&oq=%25s&aq=f&aqi=&aql=&gs_sm=e&gs_upl=485l485l0l599l1l0l0l0l0l0l0l0ll0l0
13:34:39 <ais523> I used to subscribe to the entire bugzilla of MediaWiki
13:34:43 <elliott> well, that worked, but it knows i came from the google.com page
13:34:49 <elliott> so it's not a very useful result
13:34:59 <ais523> and quite a lot of the bugs there got fixed
13:35:02 <ais523> although not all of them
13:35:10 <ais523> every now and then I get reports that one of the bugs I voted for got fixed
13:35:18 <ais523> which amuses me, as I stopped voting on them years ago
13:35:36 <elliott> ais523: Every time I've jumped over the insane hurdles required to get Bugzilla to accept a report, I've just received like three years of bugmail from it where tons of duplicates get marked forever and no progress ever happens
13:35:52 <elliott> I don't know whether to blame bugzilla or the developers, I think it's both
13:36:01 <ais523> random fact: Bugzilla is the only webform-login I've ever used that works without cookies
13:36:10 <ais523> /however/, without cookies you have to relogin every page
13:36:15 <elliott> Useful
13:36:17 <ais523> but it does work eventually, after something like 5 relogins
13:36:24 <elliott> Who even wrote Bugzilla?
13:36:27 <elliott> And why?
13:36:29 <elliott> And how can I make them hurt?
13:36:39 <elliott> Terry Weissman, apparently
13:36:49 <elliott> Stern glares in his direction, I tell you
13:37:07 <elliott> "One of Bugzilla's major attractions to developers is its lightweight implementation and speed, so calls into the database are minimized whenever possible, data fetching is kept as light as possible, and generation of heavy HTML is avoided."
13:37:10 <elliott> Why the hell's it so slow then
13:38:55 <ais523> heh, one of my favourite bits on that [[Talk:%s]] page is someone moving the rfd template below the redirect, so that the redirect would still work
13:39:11 <ais523> (and thus, so that nobody would see the rfd tag unless they thought of adding &redirect=no to the URL)

13:40:14 <Gregor> Oh Wikipedia.
13:40:16 <Gregor> So screwy.
13:40:26 <ais523> I think the biggest irony in that page is that Firefox visits [[%s]] when you type "wp" in the search bar precisely /because/ of %s's meaning in programming
13:41:24 <ais523> <CraigF> Oh come on. %s clearly doesnt belong as a seperate article anyway. Are we going to list [[lparam]]? how about [[hwnd]]?
13:41:35 <ais523> (lparam is currently a redlink; hwnd a redirect to handle (computing))

13:44:13 <elliott> wtf?
13:44:23 <elliott> anyone who knows pthreads: why would you exit the threadright before exiting?
13:44:25 <elliott> or, um, hmm
13:44:57 <ais523> wow, I just followed random interesting-looking links and ended up at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Memory_leak which explained to me what the hell RAII actually /is/
13:45:01 <ais523> in terms I actually understood
13:45:11 <ais523> I hate C++ sometimes
13:45:17 <elliott> RAII is just equating scope with resources
13:45:17 <ais523> (as opposed to everyone else, who hates it continuously)
13:45:36 <ais523> it's like alloca, but objectorientized
13:45:48 <elliott> and handling more than memory
13:46:14 <ais523> yep
13:46:24 <fizzie> elliott: For is_stop it just quits the thread instead of exit(1)ing the whole process, so that the proxying bit is left alive. I guess the exit(1) could be in an else to make it more clear.
13:46:37 <ais523> whereas when I see a close() in the finalizer for a File in Java, it looks like a mistake, or at least a very dangerous thing to rely on
13:48:06 <elliott> fizzie: Right.
13:48:20 -!- Phantom_Hoover has joined.
13:48:43 <elliott> fizzie: So, it's OK to start working on my Guile branch? Someone right now is working on getting Guile working Windows-native, and I'll make the build system offer to download/build a local copy of Guile if the system doesn't have a new enough version.
13:48:55 <elliott> It's really the nicest language I could possibly bind to.
13:48:59 <elliott> As far as binding quality goes.
13:49:16 <elliott> (The download isn't big; just six megs or so, and the building only takes a few minutes.)
13:49:23 <ais523> there were a bunch of articles recently about how Guile was still better than the alternatives at its intended purpose
13:49:43 <ais523> GNU's NIH syndrome was mentioned as a positive for it ;)
13:50:02 <elliott> probably gnu propaganda, but guile has a really nice c api, is a decent scheme, and is well-maintained
13:50:31 <ais523> I suppose lua's the other language designed to bind nicely to things
13:50:34 <elliott> hmm, how can I tell GNU that this bit of code is definitely unreachable? It's complaining that my noreturn function returns because scm_cancel_thread isn't marked noreturn
13:50:40 <elliott> erm
13:50:42 <elliott> s/gnu/gcc/
13:50:45 <ais523> I noticed that the Guile fans were mostly ignoring it
13:50:47 <elliott> (void);? :P
13:50:49 <ais523> elliott: assert(0)
13:50:52 <elliott> ais523: Lua is an awful language, though
13:51:00 <elliott> any way that doesn't involve including assert.h?
13:51:03 <ais523> it has good points
13:51:17 <ais523> actually, I'm not convinced that assert(0) definitely works
13:51:20 <ais523> but it /ought/ to
13:51:35 <elliott> Also, "Because Guile threads are isomorphic with POSIX threads, thread will not receive its cancellation signal until it reaches a cancellation point. See your operating system's POSIX threading documentation for more information on cancellation points; note that in Guile, unlike native POSIX threads, a thread can receive a cancellation notification while attempting to lock a mutex."
13:51:37 <elliott> I don't even want to know.
13:51:39 <ais523> if I ever write a Splint replacement, it'll be a warning if it can't prove that all asserts are always going to succeed
13:51:55 <DH____> I've been meaning to learn List for years..
13:52:00 <elliott> ais523: ah, abort() makes it happy
13:52:04 <fizzie> Add an exit(0) or something actually marked as noreturn there. (What do you mean inelegant?)
13:52:16 <ais523> elliott: thread cancellation is a bad idea anyway
13:52:26 <elliott> ais523: it's cancelling the thread I'm in :P
13:52:35 <ais523> it's one of the few things that's marked "wow, we realised this is a really bad idea, don't use this" in Java (except in more enterprisey language)
13:52:36 <Phantom_Hoover> http://www.reddit.com/r/worldnews/comments/k8p8b/the_lifetime_ban_on_blood_donations_by_homosexual/
13:53:01 <Phantom_Hoover> I like the way it's framed as gays being banned from donation just because the blood donation people don't like them.
13:53:02 <elliott> aha, I can just declare
13:53:02 <elliott> SCM scm_cancel_thread(SCM thread) __attribute__((noreturn));
13:53:04 <elliott> at the top of the file
13:53:46 <fizzie> That's probably not any prettier.
13:53:59 <elliott> fizzie: It avoids generating needless extra code to call abort()
13:54:06 <elliott> fizzie: Anyway, give me official approval dammit :P
13:54:09 <fizzie> Since it's not really a noreturn function if you call it for some other thread.
13:54:20 <elliott> Well, true.
13:54:28 <ais523> why would a thread cancel itself, rather than just exit?
13:54:30 <elliott> But the declaration will be local to that file.
13:54:30 <fizzie> Doesn't it have some sort of exit-this-thread function?
13:54:38 <elliott> ais523: How can a thread "just exit"?
13:54:45 <elliott> If pthreads has a function for that I can use it, but I couldn't find anything
13:54:47 <ais523> elliott: there's typically an API call for that
13:54:52 <elliott> What's the pthreads for it
13:54:56 <ais523> I know Linux has a system call for exiting a thread
13:55:09 <ais523> (it's called exit(2), not to be confused with exit_group(2) which is called by exit(3))
13:55:12 <elliott> man pthread_<tab> doesn't show much interesting
13:55:21 <fizzie> pthread_exit.
13:55:27 <elliott> Why don't I have a manpage for pthread_exit
13:55:41 <fizzie> "pthread_exit - terminate calling thread"
13:55:46 <fizzie> I have one.
13:55:49 <elliott> o_O
13:55:50 <elliott> What package?
13:55:51 <ais523> I don't have a manpage for pthread_exit either
13:55:55 <ais523> maybe it's missing on my system
13:55:58 <elliott> And what arguments does it take?
13:56:13 <fizzie> A void * retval.
13:56:34 <elliott> NULL ok?
13:56:48 <ais523> http://linux.die.net/man/3/pthread_exit
13:56:57 <elliott> Thanks
13:56:58 <ais523> elliott: I can't believe /you/ didn't think of searching for "man pthread_exit"
13:57:03 <elliott> I'm lazy
13:57:04 <ais523> it seems we're in reversed roles today
13:57:22 <ais523> (also, I should have just gone to linux.die.net anyway as that's the site I always check for manpages)
13:58:20 <ais523> it seems that the return value is just a pointer that's returned literally to anything trying to join the thread
13:58:25 <ais523> so NULL is OK
13:59:20 <elliott> erm, hmm
13:59:26 <elliott> how can I get a specific file out of a git stash from another branch?
14:00:30 <elliott> never mind
14:00:39 <ais523> gah, trying to edit Wikipedia, my connection to the server's getting reset while the page is loading
14:00:42 <ais523> that hasn't happened for months
14:01:02 <ais523> there, that's better
14:01:06 <ais523> it started working again
14:01:25 <ais523> my only conclusion is that something on this network randomly bombards me with RST packets when I try to submit a form via POST, for no obvious reason
14:01:31 <fizzie> I've had some problems with missing some pthread function manpages but not all, too. There seems to be something screwy about them.

14:02:58 <ais523> the version I have, that is

14:03:37 <elliott> oh, hmm
14:03:46 <elliott> fizzie: do you need to initialise glib threads to use mutexes and the like?
14:03:55 <fizzie> Probably, yes.
14:04:55 <fizzie> There was something slightly strange about when the explicit initialization was necessary, and when not; and in which order the glib/SDL initializations went.
14:05:05 <elliott> Indeed.

14:06:45 <fizzie> Well, then s/you/I/ to you.
14:07:02 <elliott> fizzie: Well, it's more that literally any syscall can do that and you have to handle it.
14:07:03 <fizzie> Yes, "I're".
14:07:17 <fizzie> No, *you* have to.
14:07:39 <elliott> NO YOU HAVE TO
14:07:54 <fizzie> Okay, there might well be some reads/writes that don't do the right thing either.

14:11:37 <ais523> well, mark-and-don't-sweep GCs don't actually do any garbage collection at all until they're out of memory
14:12:01 <ais523> at which point, they effectively do a sweep but with different terminology so that they can claim it isn't a sweep

14:13:09 <elliott> BEAUTIFUL
14:13:18 <elliott> ais523: We're retro coders at mcmap inc.
14:13:23 <ais523> elliott: do you prefer the standard C API (return -1 and set errno) or Linux API (return -errno)?
14:13:34 <elliott> ais523: Haskell
14:14:01 <elliott> All C error-handling conventions are intolerable :P
14:14:03 <ais523> well, I was asking which of two options you preferred, not if you thought either was good
14:14:23 <elliott> Setting errno is kind of iffy, because of calling other things in the interim, and thread-local storage
14:14:26 <elliott> So the latter, I guess
14:17:57 <ais523> I think I prefer the latter too, it's less boilerplate than errno-style
14:21:58 <fizzie> "Erno" is a Finnish male name; I haven't really ever been able to read "errno" as "error number" instead of just a silly-sounding variant of that name.
14:22:49 <ais523> anyway, anyone here have advice on a problem from work: I want to be able to benchmark a large number of OCaml programs, in as repeatable a set of circumstances as possible
14:23:03 <ais523> and the Secret Project cannot be used for benchmarking (have a free clue about it while you're at it)
14:23:21 <ais523> ideally, I'd like to count instructions rather than realtime
14:23:57 <ais523> suggested solutions are allowed to rely on or ignore the fact that the programs are in OCaml as required, and absolute speed doesn't matter (within reason), just relative speed of the programs
14:26:02 <Jafet> valgrind, then
14:26:16 <ais523> Jafet: hmm, interesting, explain more
14:26:32 <ais523> presumably it wouldn't be used in a memory-checking mode but some other mode
14:27:17 <Jafet> There's cachegrind and lackey
14:27:47 <elliott> ais523: gdb
14:27:52 <elliott> used exclusively with step
14:27:52 <Jafet> Since valgrind adds a huge amount of indirection to the code, the results should be repeatable
14:27:55 <ais523> cachegrind checks cache hits/misses, right?
14:27:57 <elliott> counting step until program termination
14:28:23 <ais523> elliott: I thought of that, and could implement it myself (it's a trivial modification to Secret Project to make it single-step), but it's monstrously slow
14:28:37 <elliott> ais523: I think you can do "step N" for some large N
14:28:42 <Jafet> Yes, but with a simulated cache.
14:28:58 <ais523> elliott: the API only allows one step at a time

15:05:51 <elliott> ais523: because pthread_cancel does nothing
15:05:55 <elliott> the thread never hits a cancellation point
15:05:58 -!- yorick has quit (Excess Flood).
15:06:03 <ais523> why is the thread not hitting a cancellation point
15:06:13 <elliott> library code, don't tell me to change it, I can't
15:06:29 -!- yorick has joined.
15:06:36 -!- jcp|other has quit (Excess Flood).
15:06:53 <ais523> why is the library code in an infinite loop?
15:07:06 <elliott> because the user typed //eval (...infinite loop...)
15:07:13 <elliott> or, possibly, just //eval (computation they did not realise would blow up)
15:07:27 <elliott> stop trying to avoid answering the question, it's like #python :)
15:07:55 <ais523> ah, OK, I was trying to work out what you were doing so I could better formulate an answer
15:08:01 -!- jcp|other has joined.
15:08:11 <ais523> perhaps spinning off a process would make more sense than a thread in that situation
15:08:12 <elliott> I can control the thread enough to set up appropriate signal handlers
15:08:16 <elliott> Not an option, sorry
15:08:18 <ais523> you can kill those as impolitely as you like
15:08:22 <elliott> It must be a thread
15:08:28 <ais523> hmm, OK
15:08:42 <elliott> (it has to be able to call the shared-state-using functions I provide to the environment)
15:08:43 <ais523> I have a hunch that threads aren't really designed for that sort of thing
15:08:59 <elliott> What you're trying to say is, you don't know the answer, right?
15:09:14 <ais523> if arbitrary code can go in that eval, it may well be something that interferes with the threading model
15:09:19 <ais523> elliott: well, I'm not entirely sure I know the question
15:09:21 <elliott> Arbitrary Scheme code
15:09:25 <ais523> but I fear that if I did, I wouldn't know the answer
15:09:46 <elliott> <elliott> Hmm, it seems that scm_cancel_thread'ing a thread currently doing scm_c_eval_string("(while #t '())") doesn't ever kill it; is there a supported way to kill a thread evaluating Guile code less politely, or should I do my evaluation timeout in another manner?
15:09:48 <elliott> Oh well, worth a shot
15:10:28 <ais523> hmm, I wonder what happens if you use SIGALRM, and then put a cancellation point in your SIGALRM handler
15:10:36 <ais523> (/me believes in using semantically correct signals for this sort of thing)
15:11:12 <ais523> or better, a pthread_exit in your SIGALRM handler
15:11:25 -!- copumpkin has joined.
15:11:37 <elliott> the question is exiting the evaluation loop safely and putting all the interpreter state back as it should be, euurgh
15:12:09 <ais523> wait what? you're trying to do multiple evals on the same interp?
15:12:17 <ais523> can you set handlers from within Scheme?
15:12:25 <elliott> Multiple whats on the same what what?
15:12:34 <ais523> if you could put an exit in a SIGALRM handler /in the Scheme program/, I think it would work
15:12:37 <elliott> I'm saying that just killing a thread while it's modifying interpreter state might not be smart.
15:13:18 <ais523> I mean, I assumed you'd have one interpreter for each eval
15:13:29 -!- Gregor` has joined.
15:13:32 <elliott> no, that's absurd for my usecase
15:13:40 <elliott> this isn't just a toy //eval, it's an integrated language :P
15:14:47 -!- Gregor has quit (Disconnected by services).
15:14:56 -!- Gregor` has changed nick to Gregor.
15:15:06 <ais523> elliott: I'm not entirely convinced that what you're asking is possible
15:15:30 <ais523> you're asking to shut down an interpreter with all relevant cleanup, while simultaneously not modifying the code of the interpreter or letting it know it should shut down in any way
15:15:40 <elliott> I'm fine with letting it know
15:15:40 <ais523> the problem's not fundamentally about threading, but about the interpreter's API
15:15:44 <elliott> I just don't know how to let it know :)
15:15:48 <elliott> that's why I'm asking people who might know

15:18:36 <ais523> elliott: I'm seeing increased use of ~ to end a sentence (that is, ending with ~ rather than .~ which pretty universally means sarcasm), in a context where sarcasm wouldn't really seem to make sense
15:18:43 <ais523> do you know if it signifies anything else?
15:18:56 -!- yorick has joined.
15:19:04 <elliott> it signifies trying to be Lymia, also possibly succeeding
15:19:08 <elliott> (say, by being Lymia)
15:19:29 <elliott> I guess it's meant to denote a kind of light tone of voice or something but w/e I don't care
15:19:40 -!- yorick has quit (Client Quit).
15:19:42 <elliott> Unless it's a third use of the tilde

15:21:50 <ais523> light tone of voice but w/e would seem to fit
15:21:58 <elliott> "Immediately after receiving this notification, thread will call its cleanup handler (if one has been set) and then terminate, aborting any evaluation that is in progress."
15:22:08 <elliott> ais523: aha, I can do scm_thread_cleanup(thread), and then pthread_kill it
15:22:15 <ais523> sounds right
15:22:21 <ais523> it's an interp API problem, not a threading problem
15:22:28 <ais523> I'll be annoyed if you don't use SIGALRM, though
15:22:44 -!- Phantom_Hoover has joined.
15:22:51 <elliott> ais523: Does SIGALRM quit the thread by default?
15:23:14 -!- Zetro_ has changed nick to Zetro.
15:23:19 <ais523> elliott: yes
15:23:33 <elliott> OK
15:23:36 <ais523> SIGALRM 14 Term Timer signal from alarm(2)
15:23:41 <elliott> yeah, I know
15:23:48 <ais523> the nice thing about semantically correct signals is that they do the right thing by default
15:24:31 <elliott> ugh, minecraft.net, get back up, I'm testing mission-critical software here
15:24:58 <ais523> elliott: strangely, I had a dream about Minecraft a couple of nights ago
15:25:17 <elliott> Do I want to know
15:25:45 <ais523> probably not
15:25:53 <ais523> I can't remember many details anyway
15:25:54 <elliott> Go on then
15:26:23 <ais523> it looked rather more like Final Fantasy Tactics Advance (with a higher resolution), though, probably because I have played that game and I haven't played Minecraft and my brain needed something to attach to
15:26:44 <ais523> all I remember is flooding the area with lava and standing on high ground to avoid it, then it mostly cooled, and there were some map spots that were permanently water
15:26:51 <elliott> hmm, just scm_thread_cleanup(thread); does nothing
15:26:54 <ais523> then night came and I was killed by an infinite number of monsters, game over
15:26:57 <elliott> the CPU keeps getting used forever
15:27:03 <elliott> that makes me worry that the thread won't be in a safe staet to kill
15:27:10 <elliott> ais523: haha
15:27:15 <ais523> (dreams tend not to distinguish between character and player, although it was pretty clear that the death was just a game-death and not anything permanent)
15:27:18 <elliott> lava doesn't cool in minecraft, though
15:27:28 <elliott> it just lavas
15:27:28 <elliott> forever
15:27:29 <ais523> I was thinking that next time, I should probably build a wall or something
15:27:52 -!- jcp|other has quit (Read error: Connection reset by peer).
15:28:01 <elliott> yeah ok thread cleanup thing doesn't work
15:28:05 <ais523> (the permanently water map spots were yellow, and shown as permanently water when I cursor-hovered them, which is apparently an operation I can do mentally while inside a game world and have no cursor)
15:28:35 <elliott> And I can't use pthread_kill because the API doesn't expose it
15:28:40 <elliott> the pthread_t, that is
15:29:56 <elliott> aha, hmm, scm_sigaction_for_thread
15:31:52 <ais523> bleh, I want to go home but it's rush rather-more-than-an-hour
15:32:57 <ais523> hmm, RAII is misnamed, I think; it's not really about allocation or initialization at all, but about deallocation and finalization
15:33:37 <elliott> grr, the exact function I want is offered
15:33:41 <elliott> but only through scheme
15:33:46 <elliott> so I have to go through hoops to get at it through c
15:36:27 <elliott> scm_call_1(scm_c_public_variable("(srfi srfi-18)", "thread-terminate!"), thread);
15:36:29 <elliott> hopefully that works
15:36:43 <ais523> what's the exclamation mark doing there? quoting?
15:37:55 <elliott> ERROR: In procedure catch-closure:
15:37:55 <elliott> ERROR: In procedure public-lookup: Module named (#{\x28;srfi}# #{srfi-18\x29;}#) does not exist
15:37:55 <elliott> hmph
15:37:58 <elliott> ais523: no, scheme
15:38:13 <ais523> elliott: I mean, it's part of the name
15:38:19 <elliott> naming convention
15:38:29 <elliott> albeit a vaguely inconsistent one
15:38:30 <ais523> I was wondering why the name contained an exclamation mark; although you can do that in Scheme, you'd need a reason to do it
15:38:35 <ais523> I was wondering what the naming convention signified
15:38:48 <elliott> "destructive", it originally just applied to mutating versions of procedures
15:38:53 <elliott> but then it got applied tovariable assignment too
15:39:00 <elliott> so now it means something like "called for side-effects"
15:39:13 <ais523> ah, aha
15:39:17 <ais523> or "impure" more generally, I suppose
15:39:31 <elliott> nah
15:39:36 <elliott> it's not applied enough for that
15:39:41 <elliott> and it's not even really applied consistently
15:39:44 <elliott> IMO the original convention was best
15:40:04 <ais523> amusingly, in ICA you use ! to not assign to a variable
15:40:12 <ais523> it's the get-contents operator (basically a dereference)
15:40:24 <ais523> same idea as in ML, although not quite semanticaly identical IIRC
15:40:26 <elliott> ERROR: In procedure catch-closure:
15:40:27 <elliott> ERROR: Wrong type to apply: #<variable 340db90 value: #<procedure thread-terminate! (thread)>>
15:40:27 <elliott> huh
15:40:48 <ais523> does it say what the right type is?
15:40:58 <ais523> but it looks like you've passed it a variable holding a thread, rather than a thread
15:41:04 <ais523> unless Scheme doesn't distinguish between those cases
15:42:40 <elliott> yay, thread-terminate just doesn't work
15:43:01 <ais523> Gregor: heh, I just noticed that I was on that page, denying a change that I personally agreed with
15:43:09 <elliott> wat
15:43:19 <ais523> because the person in question had used a tag designed for uncontroversial edits only
15:43:26 <ais523> and anything done to that page has been controversial
15:43:27 <elliott> oh, I noticed you on that page
15:43:28 <elliott> Gracenotes, too
15:45:36 <ais523> (well, I did accept a change to the CSS of the page to make it user-stylable, at least; I doubt anyone would disagree that that was an improvement)
15:47:04 <ais523> <flamingspinach> That's besides the point. I mean, if we REALLY wanted to, we could just fork the whole encyclopedia over this issue. Why not transclude? Because, as I stated above in my redirect vote, a transcluded Main Page is nonetheless not the main page. Simple as that. Oops, forgot to sign this.
15:47:26 <elliott> wtf? not even setting an alarm signal works
15:48:06 <ais523> are you sure it's not messing with signal handlers?
15:48:26 <ais523> note that signals and threads interact weirdly, if you use a non-thread-aware function like alarm it'll go SIGALRM a random thread
15:48:40 <ais523> rather than, say, the thread it was given on
15:48:55 <elliott> wait, alarm isn't signal-aware?
15:49:02 <elliott> hmm, surely scm_aarm is
15:49:04 <elliott> alarm
15:49:24 <ais523> <h2g2bob> This is the same as a search for "s" - the "%" is ignored when searching (this is the case for both mediawiki search and google searches).
15:49:33 <ais523> elliott: it's signal-aware (obviously) but not thread-aware, IIRC
15:50:02 <elliott> return scm_from_uint (alarm (scm_to_uint (i)));
15:50:04 <elliott> gah
15:50:05 <ais523> yep, the man page just mentions that the alarm's delivered to the calling process
15:50:30 <elliott> hmmm
15:50:30 <ais523> if you block SIGLARM in all threads but one, it'll be bound to be delivered to the thread that doesn't have it blocked, though
15:50:45 <elliott> I'm trying to figure out how to set an alarm for the current thread
15:50:51 <elliott> is that even possible?
15:51:07 <elliott> ooh, ooh, or how about this: can you get the current thread from pthread?
15:51:09 <elliott> s
15:52:01 <ais523> elliott: pthread_self(3)
15:52:10 <elliott> no manual entry, wooo, /me googles
15:52:12 <ais523> which I don't have a manpage for, but it's mentioned in man pthreads
15:52:23 <elliott> right, returns the thread
15:52:49 <elliott> ok, so at the start of the thread, I spawn another one, passing the thread id; that thread then sleeps ten seconds, and sends SIGALRM
15:52:58 <ais523> heh, clever
15:53:18 <ais523> I hope that the sleep isn't implemented in terms of alarm (which is allowed), or the universe will explode
15:53:36 <ais523> you might want to explicitly sleep using select in order to avoid that (select is guaranteed to be independent of alarm)
15:53:53 <elliott> heh
15:54:12 <ais523> hmm, there's a function called ftw(3)
15:54:19 <ais523> it'll go nicely with Android's wtf()
15:55:13 <ais523> apparently it's for traversing directory structures
15:55:33 <elliott> mcmap has the wonderful (die|stop|wtf)f? family of functions.
15:55:41 <elliott> DIEF!
15:55:55 <ais523> I wouldn't normally bother with a formatted error message for a wtf
15:56:03 <ais523> unless it was happening a lot and I wanted to give debug info at the same time
15:57:27 <elliott> well, completeness :P
15:57:36 <elliott> it's good to know "invalid zlib id blah"
15:57:40 <elliott> as opposed to just "invalid zlib id"
15:58:43 <ais523> heh, I'm still amused I called a template {{REMOVE THIS TEMPLATE WHEN CLOSING THIS AfD}}
15:58:54 <ais523> it seems that the lowercase f is intrinsically part of the spelling of AfD to me
16:02:06 <elliott> AHA
16:02:12 <elliott> if I send SIGTERM rather than SIGALRM, everything quits
16:02:14 <elliott> so SOMETHING works :P

16:32:18 <ais523> <Sven Manguard> I've closed the below thread. With respect to Mr. Keeper, who is only the latest person to start one of these (I may have started one myself a while back), the monthly compliant threads generate a lot of heat, rehash the same arguments, and generally serve no purpose but to create tension and sour relations. That's not the intent, of course, but it's what happens every single time, and it's what has happened this time.
16:34:41 <ais523> now, I'm wondering whether WP:GRFA has a) become massively insane, or b) is exactly the same as it used to be

16:44:37 <kmaker> yeah=that's me
16:44:45 <Taneb> So how is everyone today?
16:45:06 <kmaker> i came to ask what's going with esowiki but i see it's still online, it's just esolangs.org that isn't working
16:45:19 <Gregor> kmaker: Yeah, whoever owns esolangs.org effed up.
16:45:49 <ais523> kmaker: the DNS service hosting esolangs.org got bought out
16:46:02 <ais523> and are asking for more money in order to keep hosting the DNS
16:47:51 <kmaker> too bad...
16:48:26 <ais523> the esoteric.voxelperfect.net address should probably be considered the canonical one from now on, because it still works
16:51:50 <kmaker> so ais523, what's this feather language all about? it's mentioned here and there but i still don't know anything about it
16:51:59 <cheater> ais523 why can't you transfer esolangs.org

16:52:16 <cheater> just reading scrollback now
16:52:29 <ais523> kmaker: it's a combination of two things: an esolang idea that hurts my head when I think about it, and an inside joke

16:53:13 <ais523> the general concept is a prototype-based OO language that uses time travel rather than delegation
16:54:11 <ais523> where all variables are immutable once created (as in SSA), but you can retroactively change the values that they had when they were created
16:55:00 <Phantom_Hoover> SSA?
16:55:17 <ais523> single static assignment
16:55:30 <ais523> a programming technique in which variables can't have their values changed once they're assigned for the first time
16:55:46 <Phantom_Hoover> So basically the way variables work in Haskell?
16:55:54 <ais523> very common in functional languages, and many imperative language compilers compile via an intermediate SSA form
16:55:56 <ais523> yep
16:56:30 <Phantom_Hoover> And what's delegation?
16:56:37 <Phantom_Hoover> The WP page is kind of unhelpful.
16:56:56 <kmaker> it sounds interesting. can't imagine how programming is done heh
16:57:04 <ais523> kmaker: neither can I, that's part of the problem
16:57:08 <kmaker> :D
16:57:08 <ais523> or at least, I can, but only slightly
16:57:15 <Sgeo> Phantom_Hoover, elliott, Taneb, CakeProphet, Jailbreak update
16:57:40 <ais523> Phantom_Hoover: "inheriting" methods via asking the superclass to handle them when they aren't present in the class itself
16:57:46 <Phantom_Hoover> Ah.
16:57:56 <ais523> doing things Feather-style is one way to eliminate the distinction between classes and objects, which I like
16:57:59 <Phantom_Hoover> Wait, how does time travel replace it?
16:58:24 <ais523> with delegation: change superclass, subclass delegates to superclass and gets the new changed method
16:58:39 <ais523> with time travel: change superclass, subclass got a copy of the new version of the superclass when it was created
16:58:41 <elliott> ais523: I'm designing a makefile with user input and network connectivity; help
16:58:45 <elliott> ive gone bad
16:58:46 <elliott> mad
16:58:58 <ais523> that should have been "hlep", surely?
16:59:04 <ais523> wow, that word is hard to intentionally typo
16:59:17 <ais523> is this a makefile as in program run via make(1)/
16:59:24 <ais523> if so, I think it counts as alternative programming
16:59:34 <ais523> (that said, IIRC buildroot has user input and network connectivity)
16:59:43 <Gregor> This most recent system upgrade seems to have improved Terminal.app from being /almost/ completely unusable to being completely unusable.
16:59:44 <ais523> (it is also beautifully insane, and even actually works sometimes)
16:59:44 <Taneb> Sgeo: Jailbreak!?
16:59:53 <ais523> Gregor: what was the change?
17:00:02 <elliott> <ais523> is this a makefile as in program run via make(1)/
17:00:02 <elliott> yep
17:00:11 <Gregor> ais523: Before, Terminal was occasionally slow and horrible. Now, it's always slow and horrible.
17:00:27 <ais523> is this a subjective "horrible", or some specific horriblizer?
17:01:12 <Gregor> You type something, it goes through data buffer purgatory for a while, then shows up later. It's like they have a TCP connection to whatthefuckistan through which all data sent to/from the PTTY is routed.
17:01:16 <elliott> ais523: to clarify, it's for a completely non-esoteric purpose
17:01:20 <Taneb> Sgeo: LIES
17:01:49 <ais523> Gregor: ah, so it's just very laggy for no sane reason at all
17:01:54 <Gregor> Yup
17:01:54 <elliott> hmm, does anyone know how to trap sh so that it outputs the status code it's going to execute with to a file?
17:02:01 <ais523> elliott: * exit with?
17:02:43 <ais523> Vorpal almost certainly knows; I don't but think I know where in the man page to look it up, so I'm looking there now
17:02:45 <elliott> ais523: yes
17:03:58 <ais523> it's trap EXIT (something), I'm trying to work out what the something is atm
17:04:53 <elliott> thanks :P
17:05:15 <ais523> I think it's probably just trap EXIT (echo $? > filename.txt)
17:05:21 <ais523> but I'm not sure; it shouldn't be too hard to test
17:05:46 <elliott> sounds good :P
17:05:52 <ais523> oh, and if you want to keep the same exit status, you'd need to store $? in a temporary variable and exit with it afterwards
17:05:53 <elliott> it's '' though i think
17:05:53 <elliott> not ()
17:05:59 <ais523> ah, hmm
17:06:16 <ais523> it didn't say what format the args were meant to be in, so I assumed you put a command there rather than the string representation of a command there
17:06:19 <ais523> perhaps I'm wrong
17:07:11 <ais523> elliott: what should my reaction be to [[Talk:Binary lambda calculus]]?
17:07:31 <ais523> perhaps to mention that <math> is a nonstandard extension to MediaWiki, and just because it's used on Wikipedia doesn't mean every wiki in existence has it?
17:07:48 <ais523> <Nthern> BTW: until this problem is fixed, the way to read this article is to edit the page, copy all the text, paste it into the [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Sandbox wikipedia sandbox], and then preview.
17:07:53 <elliott> meh, it's a reaonable mistake to make; I thought <math> was standard fo rthe longest time
17:07:54 <elliott> but uh
17:08:03 <elliott> direct em to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Binary_lambda_calculus
17:08:09 <elliott> which is the same article inexplicably not deleted for notability after years
17:08:19 <ais523> elliott: is that the article you just prodded?
17:08:37 <elliott> no :)
17:08:43 <ais523> apparently not
17:08:44 <elliott> aw, the guy apologised to me and now i feel bad
17:09:07 <ais523> it does have references, at least
17:09:34 <ais523> heh, I'll have no idea which article you prodded unless I can guess your IP
17:09:41 <ais523> or check for recent prods, I guess, but that's nontrivial to do
17:09:48 <elliott> MWAHAHAHAHHA
17:11:38 <kmaker> by the way, has anyone made any brainfuck programs lately?
17:12:01 <ais523> we were playing a bit of BF Joust recently, but I don't think so apart from that
17:12:25 <kmaker> ok
17:15:50 <kmaker> i have a few ideas but it remains to be seen if i actually get anything done this year

17:18:36 <elliott> yep, someone seven days ago
17:18:51 <elliott> ais523: what a waste of effort :P
17:19:07 <ais523> it was fun, and I wanted to see if I could still remember how to do it
17:24:04 <ais523> I just looked for a page in the prod category whose most recent recategorization was around the time of your revert
17:26:26 <ais523> and the problem is that there's no way to specify that in the interface, so I had to use the API

20:58:14 <fizzie> It just might match any <s> elements with at least three or four children of any type. If [n] was the index-thing, and depending on whether it was 0- or 1-indexed.
20:58:29 <Taneb> I'm hoping 1-indexed
20:58:43 <Taneb> And I'm hoping fizzie is right
20:59:53 <fizzie> It could be a shorthand for something like //s/*[position()=3]/..

22:03:59 <ais523> well, if you /are/ dreaming, and I convince you that you are
22:04:03 <ais523> then you'll probably wake up
22:04:06 <ais523> it's the most common result
22:04:10 <CakeProphet> ais523: oh I know I'm not dreaming.

22:04:38 <CakeProphet> I find it is much easier to realize you are not dreaming than it is to realize you are.
22:05:16 <CakeProphet> even the most vivd dreams aren't like being fully awake.
22:05:32 <CakeProphet> and you have the cognitive faculty while awake to determine such things.
22:05:39 <olsner> so how many of those times you've realized you were "not" dreaming were you actually wrong? can you even know?
22:05:46 <CakeProphet> so fucking you philosophy and your dream shit.
22:05:53 <ais523> olsner: that's only ever happened to me with recursive dreams
22:05:53 <monqy> I've been wrong about realizing I'm not dreaming
22:06:02 <ais523> where I assumed I wasn't dreaming because I just work up
22:06:07 <olsner> ais523: recursive dreams are awesome!
22:06:09 <ais523> which turns out not to be an entirely reliable check
22:06:12 <ais523> olsner: no they aren't
22:06:17 <ais523> you go through your boring morning routine
22:06:18 <olsner> I've just had one, it was hilarious
22:06:21 <ais523> then have to do it all /again/
22:06:25 <CakeProphet> olsner: sure can't
22:06:29 <ais523> well, it's funny the first time
22:06:32 <ais523> but gets old quickly
22:06:40 <monqy> my recursive dreams don't involve morning routines, interestingly enough
22:06:44 <CakeProphet> but I am /not/ dreaming now, for sure. it may be hard to determine these things when you're dreaming, but not when you're actually awake.
22:07:01 <CakeProphet> unless my entire life has been a dream, I guess.
22:07:02 <monqy> I usually wake up in a strange place but know what's going on
22:07:20 <ais523> monqy: do you realise it's a recursive dream that time?
22:07:24 <ais523> or only when you wake up a second time?
22:07:25 <monqy> no
22:07:46 <CakeProphet> I think "nested" is a better term.
22:08:01 <monqy> I don't think I'm not dreaming when I wake up
22:08:15 <monqy> maybe it just doesn't occur to dream me
22:08:20 * CakeProphet is very bad at dreaming, truthfully.
22:08:21 <olsner> the worst case would be some kind of fixpoint dream where you wake up in the dream you were waking up from
22:08:47 <olsner> ... and you keep doing it the rest of your life
22:08:59 <monqy> tonight I had a dream in which I had a series of dreams within that dream and I was describing them
22:09:00 <CakeProphet> most of my dreams are not very vivid. Sometimes they are. Sometimes they nest as well.
22:09:05 <CakeProphet> but most are very vaguely recalled.
22:09:25 <ais523> olsner: you just need each dream to go twice as quickly, in realtime, as the previous one
22:09:40 <CakeProphet> ...Inception anyone?
22:09:42 <ais523> once you go past the convergence point, you are now capable of thinking an infinite amount in finite time
22:10:02 <CakeProphet> I don't think the ratio was 2 though in Inception.
22:10:10 <ais523> this strikes me as probably better than a singularity, because you can't trust a random AI, but you can probably trust olsner
22:10:16 <olsner> CakeProphet: inception did not go deep enough ... into the subject of nested and recursive dreams
22:10:35 <CakeProphet> olsner: I was referring to the time stuff, as ais523 mentioned it.
22:10:41 * Phantom_Hoover → sleep
22:10:54 -!- Phantom_Hoover has quit (Quit: Leaving).
22:11:08 <monqy> never seen inception. probably shjould.
22:11:18 <CakeProphet> monqy: it is not bad.
22:11:30 <CakeProphet> it's one of the few movies that made my brain hurt a little bit.
22:12:28 <olsner> didn't make my brain hurt, but maybe I wasn't watching it thinkingly enough
22:13:06 <CakeProphet> occasionally I'd lost track of some detail and be slightly confused as to what was going on
22:13:16 <CakeProphet> until it returned to a previous dream. "oh right..."
22:14:02 <olsner> what was going on was always moving into, out of or around inside a dream
22:15:59 -!- GreaseMonkey has quit (Quit: The Other Game).
22:17:08 <CakeProphet> olsner: uh true statement
22:20:15 <CakeProphet> Entertainment Weekly gave the film a B+ rating and Lisa Schwarzbaum wrote, "It's a rolling explosion of images as hypnotizing and sharply angled as any in a drawing by M.C. Escher or a state-of-the-biz videogame; the backwards splicing of Nolan's own Memento looks rudimentary by comparison."[
22:20:30 <CakeProphet> I don't trust anyone from Entertainment Weekly to have actually followed what was going on in that moive.
22:20:39 <CakeProphet> thus the "rolling explosion of images"
22:21:24 <zzo38> Now, it cannot make type level programming in Haskell. Because, I try thing it failed
22:21:43 <CakeProphet> wat
22:22:19 <olsner> CakeProphet: it cannot make type level
22:22:31 <CakeProphet> I see.
22:22:40 <CakeProphet> I recall walking out of the theater feeling as though I were in a dream
22:22:44 <CakeProphet> after watching that movie.
22:23:02 <zzo38> I have watched Inception movie. And then I said they have read Godel, Escher, Bach. My brother said no they did not do so. But, I wanted to make sure I checked, in Wikipedia, in fact one of the people did read that book.
22:23:58 <CakeProphet> oh good.
22:24:20 <zzo38> Did you read the book Godel, Escher, Bach?
22:24:49 <CakeProphet> I haven't.
22:26:22 <CakeProphet> According to Hollywood Reporter, both Brad Pitt and Will Smith were offered the role.
22:26:36 <CakeProphet> I don't think Will Smith would have been as good in that role.
22:26:56 <CakeProphet> he would do his Will-Smith-sad-face thing and it would ruin everything. :P
22:27:27 <zzo38> How do you make it in Haskell, that if instance GreaterThan t u => DoesNotDivide (Succ t) (Succ u); doesn't work, then it will try instance DoesNotDivide t (Subt u t) => DoesNotDivide t u; instead?
22:28:04 <CakeProphet> you.... don't
22:28:09 <CakeProphet> you don't don't do that.
22:29:35 <zzo38> Is there any way to make an extension in Haskell to make it to work?
22:29:49 <CakeProphet> you have typeclasses, and instances of such. if the type matches the instance declaration then it has an implementation of the methods.
22:30:03 <CakeProphet> there isn't any sort of re-routing or conditional logic involved.
22:30:15 <CakeProphet> zzo38: feel free.
22:31:38 <zzo38> GHC does allow overlapping instances and incoherent instances and so on. Sometimes it does it by specificness. But sometimes it should instead assume they are equivalent if defined??
22:32:44 <CakeProphet> how would it go about resolving that?
22:41:40 <CakeProphet> zzo38: basically you can't make typeclass implications when the instance doesn't match.
22:41:50 <CakeProphet> it has to be true.
22:47:59 <CakeProphet> ...what, why did my date and time disappear
22:48:10 <CakeProphet> and why is there a large inaccessible hole on the panel where I cannot add things.
22:48:25 <monqy> @localtime CakeProphet
22:48:34 <monqy> lambdabot.......
22:48:42 <monqy> rip :'(
22:48:44 <CakeProphet> monqy: NO I MUST FIX MY PANEL
22:49:16 <monqy> 01:49:43
22:49:19 <monqy> when i checked
22:49:25 <monqy> a few minutes ago
22:49:26 <monqy> er
22:49:27 <monqy> seconds
22:49:33 <monqy> maybe a minute ago in a few more seconds
22:49:33 <CakeProphet> 6:50 PM here
22:49:37 <monqy> oh
22:49:39 <CakeProphet> but I CAN'T GET IT TO GO IN THE SAME PLACE
22:49:41 <CakeProphet> NOTHING WILL GO
22:49:44 <CakeProphet> THERE IS JUST A BIG UGLY HOLE
22:49:46 <monqy> i checked your time it must be broken
22:49:54 <monqy> my time is 1551
22:49:55 <CakeProphet> uh, no.
22:50:11 <CakeProphet> it is 6:50 PM aka 18:50
22:50:26 <monqy> yeah but when i checked it it said 01:49:43
22:50:32 <CakeProphet> I have 3 time sources that agree with me.
22:50:36 -!- copumpkin has quit (Quit: Computer has gone to sleep.).
22:50:36 <monqy> oh wait no that must have been the server
22:50:51 <monqy> oh I didn't use the right command
22:50:52 <monqy> haha
22:50:52 <monqy> :(
22:51:18 <monqy> 15:52:58 [freenode] CTCP TIME reply from CakeProphet: Thu Sep 8 18:51:57 2011
22:51:20 <monqy> that's better
22:51:20 <CakeProphet> bah
22:51:22 <CakeProphet> this is bad.
22:51:31 <monqy> just ctcp time yourself whenever you need it
22:51:40 <CakeProphet> you are missing the point completely.
22:51:45 <monqy> that's the joke
22:51:54 <CakeProphet> I have a clock on my panel now
22:52:00 <CakeProphet> BUT IT IS. IN. THE. WRONG. PLACE.
22:52:05 <monqy> how does that even happen
22:52:19 <CakeProphet> I don't know
22:52:28 <CakeProphet> my computer does this shit for some reason after restarts sometimes.
22:52:39 <CakeProphet> first my shutdown button disappeared... though I don't really need that one.
22:53:26 <CakeProphet> where is panel configuration stuff at?
22:54:08 <CakeProphet> it's not in gconf is it?
22:55:30 -!- KingOfKarlsruhe has quit (Quit: ChatZilla 0.9.87 [Firefox 6.0.1/20110830092941]).
23:00:44 <CakeProphet> bam fixed.
23:01:05 <CakeProphet> something weird happened to the original clock app so I just manually removed it in gconf.
23:07:33 <itidus20> random youtube comment: "and I thought Finland was bad for making the moomins..........  :P"
23:09:04 <zzo38> The instance for DoesNotDivide doesn't work. OK, I have been told why it doesn't work. Does it mean there is some things missing from Haskell type system? Or, does it mean other thing instead?
23:09:28 -!- kmc has joined.
23:14:01 <CakeProphet> if by "missing" you mean "doesn't do what you want it to do" then yes.
23:14:25 <CakeProphet> though there are probably things that are actually missing... ask elliott I bet he knows.
23:16:51 -!- copumpkin has joined.
23:16:52 <zzo38> As far as I know there could be a lot of improvement that could be made in Haskell, including new kinds and new pragmas and new macros and other stuff
23:20:40 <CakeProphet> my stance is that nothing could ever be improved about Haskell it is perfect in every way.
23:20:55 <shachaf> CakeProphet: Without more-notation?
23:21:44 <CakeProphet> nothing.
23:22:25 <CakeProphet> man this code is going to be a pain in the ass to debug
23:22:33 <CakeProphet> maybe if I just stare at it long enough I'll find all of the bugs.
23:22:40 <monqy> is this for your thing
23:22:46 <CakeProphet> no never.
23:22:57 <CakeProphet> I have no things.
23:23:00 <CakeProphet> no such thing
23:23:07 <zzo38> Is there some things in category theory that cannot be made in Haskell?
