00:43:29 <elliott> back
00:43:47 <elliott> RocketJSquirrel: well it's for TASes sure but why would you do that
00:49:37 <RocketJSquirrel> pikhq_: I thought the whole point was for TAS, so rewind. I'm just validating that that ability also gives it save-states.
00:49:41 <RocketJSquirrel> elliott: How about ... for save states.
00:50:18 <elliott> RocketJSquirrel: Well, it's slow, you know.
00:50:24 <elliott> What kind of game?
00:50:38 <RocketJSquirrel> I didn't have anything in mind, it was a general question.
00:50:44 <RocketJSquirrel> I've never ran it, so I have no idea how slow it is X-D
00:51:14 <elliott> Me neither, really.
00:51:21 <elliott> RocketJSquirrel: But come on, it rips out the scheduler.
00:51:23 <elliott> And does it in userspace.

05:02:19 <monqy> poetry to my soul
05:02:48 <zzo38> Isn't the autumn, the season?
05:03:25 <elliott> The ending of that article cheated me. :(
05:04:27 <zzo38> I can tell you the latitude and longitude of the autumn equinox.
05:05:29 <elliott> thanks
05:07:39 <zzo38> Its declination is zero, and its Greenwich hour angle changes all the time.
05:08:06 * Sgeo is no longer an admin at the Nethack Wiki
05:08:07 <zzo38> Its ecliptic latitude is also zero, and its ecliptic longitude is 180 degrees (= 0 Libra).
05:08:26 -!- Nisstyre has joined.
05:08:43 <zzo38> I think its right ascension would also be 180 degrees (= 12 hours).
05:09:17 <elliott> Sgeo: You were ever?
05:09:38 <Sgeo> Since 2005 or so. It did carry over to the new site, if that's what you're asking.
05:09:54 <zzo38> Now we know the latitude and longitude of the autumn equinox.
05:09:58 <Sgeo> And apparently, if I want it back, I can just ask, and will get it, no questions asked.

05:17:38 <elliott> Are you sure you're younger than 21?
05:17:51 <shadwick> elliott: oh ok. I've gotta fix it up a bit anyways

05:18:26 <monqy> shadwick: he's talking about tab-completion. you and shachaf share the first three letters in your names
05:18:47 <elliott> shadwick: yeah
05:19:05 <elliott> Sgeo: Saying that was just as bad as not fighting it, so you might as well just go ahead.
05:19:12 <monqy> or at least if I was elliott I'd be talking about tab-completion because wow sharing three letters is a lot
05:19:33 <elliott> yes it's too much
05:19:36 <shadwick> elliott: I'm working on a compiler/interpreter for another language right now. I'll fix up the last bit of the Optimism code before I ask about the archive thingy

05:46:18 <shadwick> just a random lang I found in the unimplemented category yesterday
05:46:19 <shadwick> from 2008
05:46:31 <shadwick> I wanted to make an interpreter for it so I contacted him to ask a few dtails
05:47:02 <shadwick> it's coming along well so far; got the source->bytecode compiler working and program state and execution functionality down
05:47:08 <shachaf> ∀chemy!
05:47:18 <shadwick> hahaha nice name
05:48:16 <zzo38> What programming language are you using to write compilers/interpreters?
05:48:29 <shadwick> C
05:48:36 <shachaf> Norwegian.
05:48:59 <shadwick> far as I know, it will pass valgrind with flying colours
05:49:00 <monqy> @
05:49:03 <shadwick> haven't confirmed that yet
05:49:58 <elliott> @@@@
05:50:28 <zzo38> I have used different programming languages to implement different esolangs, sometimes multiple implementations in different programming languages, some of them possibly other esolangs too.
05:50:33 <monqy> the more @ you add, the perfecter it gets
05:52:16 <elliott> @^@
06:00:00 <zzo38> (I have implemented FlogScript in PHP, BytePusher in CWEB, Constantinople in Haskell, Deadfish in dc and Forth and TeX and TeXnicard, Underload in TeX and FlogScript, and Unlambda in PHP.
06:01:03 <zzo38> (I have also invented and implemented FurryScript, which may be called a quasi-esolang by some.)
06:01:10 <zzo38> O, and I have implemented Pure BF in Haskell, too.
06:01:22 <myndzi> furry...script?
06:01:45 <zzo38> myndzi: http://esolangs.org/wiki/User:Zzo38/FurryScript Tell me if you misunderstand anything about it.
06:02:23 <myndzi> ha, i was envisaging something more like a cross between 'yiff' and lolcode
06:02:29 <myndzi> but .. i couldn't think of anything except 'yiff'
06:04:13 <zzo38> myndzi: Well, someone once thought it was something like that and responded to my message about FurryScript with a code that looked like a somewhat badly written JavaScript code involving 'yiff' and a few other things. But actually, FurryScript is not JavaScript nor is it 'yiff'.
06:04:54 <elliott> dispensin' the facts
06:05:33 <myndzi> indeed!
06:05:40 <myndzi> it would be more interesting if it was though
06:05:41 <myndzi> :P
06:06:01 <myndzi> little(?) known fact is that 'yiff' comes from a whole language of dog sounds haha
06:06:19 <myndzi> by 'whole language' i'm talking like a dozen words of course
06:06:32 <myndzi> but yiff is the only one anyone knows
06:13:25 <zzo38> Of course you can write programs in FurryScript involving that stuff or any other stuff if you want, but they are not part of the programming language. Do you think this is good and understandable document to you?
06:13:49 <myndzi> i don't know, i was only curious if it was any relation :P
06:13:55 <myndzi> let's see
06:19:21 <myndzi> it is a good and understandable document :)
06:19:58 <zzo38> Can you write any programs using it? So far I am the only one who has written anything with it (although data comes from various sources and is not entirely my own).
06:21:17 <myndzi> the document would certainly benefit from some code examples both to demonstrate syntax and purpose :P
06:21:22 <myndzi> define writing a program
06:22:27 <elliott> monqy: hi
06:22:32 <myndzi> there are also some vagaries that could be explained better
06:23:12 <monqy> elliott: hi
06:23:56 <elliott> monqy: tell me to go to bed in the next few minutes, thanks
06:24:04 <monqy> go to bed
06:24:20 <zzo38> myndzi: OK then do tell me what needs to be explain better
06:24:26 <zzo38> I would like to fix it
06:25:06 <myndzi> explain what you mean by 'continuation', what purpose a parameter serves (and where it goes when you take it from the stack), and your syntax with the parenthesis ( foo -- bar )
06:25:15 <elliott> monqy: no not now
06:25:17 <elliott> not noooooooow
06:25:26 <elliott> myndzi: I would assume the standard meaning of continuation unless stated otherwise
06:25:30 <monqy> elliott: now?
06:25:33 <elliott> ( foo -- bar ) is presumably the standard Forth stack notation
06:25:37 <elliott> monqy: no not noooooooow
06:25:41 <monqy> elliott: now.
06:25:43 <myndzi> elliott: yeah, but i'm a noob
06:26:02 <monqy> elliott: do you have a timer
06:26:07 <myndzi> now if you are defining something for a person to read, you don't want to draw references in from a bunch of other languages ;)
06:26:25 <myndzi> also uncertain if one command per line or what
06:26:33 <elliott> well continuations are a pretty common concept :P
06:26:42 <elliott> the stack notation is unintuitive to a newcomer to stack languages though yeah
06:26:53 <elliott> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Continuation may enlighten you or confuse you tenfold
06:26:55 <myndzi> i'm just taking it for what it is
06:27:05 <myndzi> a document ;)
06:27:15 <zzo38> myndzi: The ( foo -- bar ) is the Forth-like stack notation; elliott is correct about that. (It is sometimes used in other programming language with stack too.) But the continuations are not exactly like other programming language continuations though; there are a few differences. I don't know the best way to describe but source-codes is available.
06:27:33 <myndzi> but i guess this is foot-in-mouth moment, i didn't even recognize these as standard notations :P
06:27:42 <myndzi> truth is i'm not even in the right channel ;D
06:27:48 <zzo38> Examples might also help. Here are codes for examples: http://zzo38computer.cjb.net/furry/scripts/
06:28:13 <elliott> well continuations are mostly something you might stumble upon in functional programming circles liek scheme and haskell, although POSIX used to have them (technically)
06:28:24 <elliott> an interwiki link to wikipedia for the term is probably appropriate
06:28:40 <elliott> myndzi: the ( foo -- bar ) thing is just ( stack before -- stack afterwards )
06:28:44 <elliott> e.g. ( m n -- m+n )
06:28:51 <elliott> swap would be ( a b -- b a )
06:28:52 <elliott> etc.
06:29:38 <myndzi> that's kinda what i gathered from context
06:30:03 <myndzi> just wasn't sure "where" the components were
06:30:04 <myndzi> :P
06:30:13 <elliott> top of the stack comes last
06:30:26 <myndzi> i mean "on the stack" or "somewhere else"
06:30:32 <elliott> ah
06:30:32 <myndzi> i'm not so savvy as that
06:30:32 <myndzi> haha
06:30:33 <elliott> stack
06:31:01 <myndzi> really i just came here because of bf joust a long time ago and stay because interesting stuff at times
06:32:30 <zzo38> The result of a subroutine can be one of three things: OK, bad, or very bad.
06:32:59 <myndzi> HORrible ;D
06:33:22 <zzo38> Yes, that is why the command for very bad is called HOR.
06:33:32 <elliott> myndzi: er you were here way before bf joust i think
06:33:43 <myndzi> haha nope!
06:33:53 <myndzi> though, bf joust has had a couple recurrences
06:34:05 <myndzi> it was impomatic in #corewars talkin about it that got me to come play

06:39:36 <myndzi> lol
06:40:08 <myndzi> i wonder why it didn't trigger on yours
06:40:38 <myndzi> i'll have to do the colors sometime when i'm not four beers in, it probably requires a complete rewrite of things
06:40:46 <myndzi> bolds complicate matters too, but hopefully i don't have to support that :)
06:41:25 <elliott> myndzi: can i make it more complicated
06:41:30 <elliott> just copying the colours for each column is wrong
06:41:40 <myndzi> you want it to follow the lines
06:41:43 <elliott> if a head is one colour, that entire person (and only that person) should be that colour
06:41:54 <myndzi> that actually makes it easier
06:41:57 <elliott> if it's multiple colours, it should use the same stretching you use for nicks to fill the whole body on every line ;)
06:42:03 -!- MoALTz_ has quit (Ping timeout: 246 seconds).
06:42:11 <elliott> that makes it easier? i don't want to see your code then
06:42:17 <myndzi> lol
06:42:21 <myndzi> well when you said "body same color as head"
06:42:25 <myndzi> that = one color for everything
06:42:34 <myndzi> but all the little dudes \o/
06:42:34 <myndzi> |
06:42:34 <myndzi> /<
06:42:40 <myndzi> fall into three columns by your description anyway
06:42:48 <elliott> (_| |_) ain't three columns
06:42:49 <myndzi> so the stretching would be the same as per-column
06:42:54 <myndzi> ^ little dudes
06:42:57 <elliott> ah
06:43:13 <myndzi> even that guy is about the same
06:43:18 <myndzi> max +1 and/or -1
06:43:28 <myndzi> so stretching that to two wouldn't be much of a ... stretch

06:44:55 <elliott> myndzi: meh, blame my proportional font then
06:45:03 <myndzi> it won't render the rocker dude if he's within one character of other stuff
06:45:14 <myndzi> ah, why would you even care with a proportional font lol ;)
06:46:28 <myndzi> you don't want to see the code anyway though
06:46:37 <myndzi> it looks like any code that starts simple and expands to do more than it should
06:46:50 <zzo38> I use a fixed font on my IRC but that doesn't mean these things will be lined up
06:46:52 <elliott> you need an extensible dude-drawing framework
06:47:02 <myndzi> :D
06:47:11 <myndzi> zzo38: too many variances in clients, yeah
06:47:31 <myndzi> but any client that left-aligns nicks should do, excepting ones that don't pad for non-status-symbols when there's a difference
06:47:49 <myndzi> i actually made it output proper spaces once but i actually got more complaints than otherwise
06:48:25 <myndzi> man, i neglected an ebay auction earlier
06:48:26 <myndzi> :\
06:48:35 <myndzi> 120 watt solar panel, probably would have gone for < $1/watt

06:49:21 <myndzi> lol
06:49:28 <myndzi> i'm impressed that slowrush is still hanging out in decent shape
06:49:34 <zzo38> myndzi: For example, on my client, your messages are thirteen spaces to the right of elliott's messages. And many other client do in other ways; it also depend fixed/proportinal, table format, and other things too. So you cannot really get it to work (possibly even in some cases, messages from the same sender might not be lined up!)
06:49:35 <myndzi> but
06:49:40 <myndzi> it's hard to top the effort ais put in
06:49:47 <myndzi> with what limited motivation i have :)
06:50:32 <myndzi> the ones he did most recently are like the ones i wanted to do but didn't want to spend the effort on, but also better most likely
06:50:33 <myndzi> haha
06:50:48 <myndzi> now it's less about discovery than it is about refinement
06:50:53 <myndzi> which is the same r eason i can't get myself into corewars
06:51:56 <zzo38> (Also, my IRC uses its own colors instead of using the colors specified in the message.)
06:52:10 <kmc> of course it does
06:52:28 <elliott> myndzi: i think it's still about discovery as, iirc, ais' latest strategy still has no known counter
06:52:35 <elliott> in general
06:52:48 <myndzi> zzo38: it's more like, there's no way i can cater to everything so i went for the majority
06:53:14 <zzo38> myndzi: Yes, you cannot cater to everything.
06:53:22 <monqy> is it even possible to cater to zzo's client
06:54:07 <elliott> myndzi: zzo38's client shows the lines as raw IRC lines with syntax highlighting
06:54:09 <elliott> so there's that
06:54:10 <myndzi> elliott: dunno, i just refreshed my memory and it's more like "everything useful thus far"
06:54:12 <elliott> better account for user+hostname
06:54:18 <myndzi> elliott: lol.
06:54:23 <elliott> myndzi: eh?
06:54:25 <elliott> re: everything useful
06:54:28 <myndzi> i've irced with telnet many a time and i can't imagine why anyone would want to do that
06:54:38 <elliott> because zzo
06:54:38 <zzo38> monqy: It probably is, but is not such a good idea since any client does them differently from another one.
06:54:38 <myndzi> i mean slowpoke.bfjoust
06:54:52 <elliott> fuuuuck good{night,morning}
06:54:57 <myndzi> it's integrated the strategies or counters to everything up to it basically
06:55:02 <myndzi> and that shows in the ratings too
06:55:04 <zzo38> myndzi: I have once done that too; but then I found it wasn't very good so I wrote an IRC client instead.
06:55:48 <myndzi> it loses to a couple, which means that you could target it, but that does you no good if the specific killers don't survive on their own against a lot of other things
06:56:31 <myndzi> i'm not being defeatist, i just don't have any ideas :)
06:56:42 <myndzi> not that don't involve "doing something very similar but better"
06:56:54 <myndzi> it was the "doing something new" that caught my interest

19:37:47 <oerjan> my problem is more of the never managing to take off kind.
19:37:55 <elliott> do you have any ideas for better names for [[EsoInterpreters]]? :P
19:38:14 <fizzie> Esorters. Wait, no, "better". Sorry.
19:38:15 <elliott> I suppose [[Interpreters in esoteric languages]] would work, but that could be used for implementations of /non-esoteric/ languages in esolangs
19:38:20 <oerjan> i don't see what's wrong with it.
19:38:22 -!- NihilistDandy has quit.
19:38:44 <fizzie> [[Interpreters of esoteric languages in esoteric languages by esoteric languages for esoteric languages]].
19:38:49 <elliott> oerjan: well the camelcase is very out-of-place and it doesn't offer any useful information beyond "Interpreters"
19:39:02 <oerjan> elliott: well if we get any of those they would probably deserve to be there
19:40:24 <elliott> oerjan: err, wat? it's meant to be a cross-reference. if you add a column you add a row. thus if i implemented C in Thue, we'd have to add implementations of all the esolangs in C to the table
19:40:34 <elliott> which is ridiculous
19:40:52 <oerjan> we have many more rows than columns
19:41:23 <oerjan> in fact i've been thinking that if we get much more columns it should be split up, i thought the self-interpreters could be their own table
19:41:27 <oerjan> *many
19:41:36 <olsner> I think that table wants to be automatically generated
19:41:40 <elliott> well ok "if you add a row and there are any relevant column entries then you add a column"
19:41:55 <elliott> olsner: yes, that was what i was going to work on, but then i got annoyed at the page name again.
19:43:01 <olsner> I think fizzie is on the right track with [[Interpreters of esoteric languages in esoteric languages by esoteric languages for esoteric languages]]
19:43:03 <olsner> [[X_in_Y]]
19:44:11 <zzo38> How does ip-over-ping work?
19:44:29 <elliott> badly
19:45:25 <fizzie> olsner: Are you sure it's not lacking few more prepositions? Under esoteric languages alongside esoteric languages betwixt esoteric languages notwithstanding esoteric languages?
19:45:41 <olsner> zzo38: based on my recent experiments, better than ip-over-internet
19:47:06 <olsner> well, tcp/ip-over-internet, the ip part is actually somewhat working
19:47:15 <olsner> fizzie: I'd google for even more prepositions if I could
19:48:01 <elliott> oerjan: btw i _believe_ that it can be generated with a (hideous) template
19:48:14 <elliott> so that all you'd need to do is something like

19:49:07 <elliott> but i'm not certain.
19:49:45 <elliott> hmm is Ook! _really_ a joke language? we have worse BF derivatives categorised as languages :P
19:52:19 <zzo38> Today's horoscope include a grand trine of Ven-Mar-Plu and Jup-Mar-Plu. (Actually, Lilith does too.) So, if someone ask you, what is today's horoscope? Then tell them there is the grand trine. If they ask you what that means, tell them it is three objects 120 degrees apart of ecliptic longitude from each other.
19:54:22 <oerjan> istr r/astronomy had pictures of a venus-jupiter conjunction some days ago
19:55:17 <oerjan> or wait is that what this implies today
19:55:17 <ais523> elliott: hmm, well it was intended as a joke…
19:55:19 <zzo38> There is the Venus-Jupiter conjunction even today it seems; although their ecliptic latitudes differ.
19:55:21 <ais523> this is as bad as the esolang/not esolang thing

19:57:06 <ais523> it shouldn't be too hard
19:57:10 <zzo38> I have never looked at the actual planets with a telescope, although I sometimes see moon and planets and stars and so on just looking outside, I can see which direction and how close they are to each other and so on. I can compute horizon view on my computer as well, though.
19:57:16 <fizzie> olsner: 'betwixt' and 'notwithstanding' were from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_English_prepositions

19:58:56 <elliott> hi kmkr!
19:59:09 <kmkr> hi
19:59:17 <kmkr> a question. which one i should learn? haskell, scheme, or lisp?
19:59:29 <zzo38> kmkr: Perhaps learn all three.
19:59:30 <kmkr> i see many esolang related programs are written in haskell
19:59:42 <oerjan> well it's my favorite language these days
20:00:13 <kmkr> heh, when i was writing that i was in fact thinking about your programs :D
20:00:19 <monqy> what's lisp
20:01:00 <zzo38> I wrote a compiler for the esolang Constantinople, in Haskell.
20:01:14 <elliott> oerjan and zzo38 are probably to blame for the number of haskell esolang programs
20:01:29 <elliott> but it's rather popular in here too
20:01:37 <elliott> kmkr: as far as "lisp" goes, assuming you mean Common Lisp, I wouldn't bother
20:01:40 <zzo38> If you do search in esolang wiki, you can find other things too.
20:01:46 <elliott> (R5RS) scheme is a far more interesting language in that family
20:02:06 -!- olsner has quit (Ping timeout: 252 seconds).
20:02:21 <elliott> if you learn haskell, scheme will be easy to learn. scheme knowledge helps comparatively less in learning haskell. but scheme is easier to learn coming from a background of "traditional" languages

20:03:46 <elliott> ais523: hey, is it possible to do a map over every parameter in mediawiki?
20:03:53 <elliott> (templates)
20:04:11 <ais523> not as far as I know, unless you know all the possible parameter names, and only then via the stupidest form of iteration
20:04:38 <ais523> I seem to remember the devs yelling at the authors of {{for}}, too
20:04:46 <elliott> ais523: hmm... what do templates that take arbitrary amounts of data do, then? oh, hmm, perhaps I can achieve this with X-Macros
20:04:48 <ais523> because it produced too much server load, or something
20:04:49 <elliott> but hmm
20:04:50 <zzo38> Make a MediaWiki extension.
20:04:56 <elliott> does {{ {{{1}}} | blah }} ever work to invoke a template?
20:04:57 <ais523> elliott: they cap at an arbitrary number
20:05:00 <ais523> and yes, it does
20:05:04 <elliott> it does?
20:05:08 <elliott> OK, so I can produce a data file like
20:05:08 <ais523> this is the usual way to do large hash tables
20:05:14 <elliott> {{ {{{1}}} | name=abc | foo=bar }}
20:05:14 <elliott> {{ {{{1}}} | name=abc | foo=bar }}
20:05:15 <elliott> ...
20:05:19 <elliott> and then call it from other templates
20:05:25 <elliott> which pass another template as an argument
20:05:28 <elliott> thus producing a loop

20:08:27 <oerjan> i guess that's accurate
20:08:41 <elliott> kmkr: i might as well give the standard advice to forget everything you know about programming, since haskell is so different to everything else

20:09:37 <elliott> kmkr: i feel compelled to note that zzo38's haskell style is not considered idiomatic.
20:09:43 <oerjan> kmkr: you should perhaps know that zzo38 has a rather d... right :P
20:10:08 <oerjan> i'm not 100% mine is, either, but at least i use layout
20:10:16 <zzo38> elliott: Yes you are correct. But it does not necessarily have to be idiomatic to work.
20:10:43 <oerjan> i suppose it might also be nice to see how different from idiomatic you _can_ program
20:11:04 <zzo38> I just do it the way which makes sense to me
20:11:07 <oerjan> *+sure
20:11:16 <elliott> ais523: hmm, I have a feeling this may need more template metaprogramming than mediawiki can support
20:11:42 <ais523> this is usual
20:12:02 <oerjan> > fix((0:).scanl(+)1)
20:12:04 <lambdabot> [0,1,1,2,3,5,8,13,21,34,55,89,144,233,377,610,987,1597,2584,4181,6765,10946...
20:13:54 <oerjan> > filterM(const[True,False])[1,2,3] -- and yet another haskell example
20:13:55 <zzo38> oerjan: How is your Haskell programming difference from whatever other style there is?
20:13:55 <lambdabot> [[1,2,3],[1,2],[1,3],[1],[2,3],[2],[3],[]]
20:14:30 <kmkr> what does idiomatic even mean in programming?
20:14:52 <oerjan> zzo38: i don't know, i'm just not assuming i'm entirely idiomatic.
20:15:04 <zzo38> It is the compound word of "idiot" and "automatic".
20:15:36 <elliott> ais523: http://esolangs.org/w/index.php?title=User:Ehird/sandbox/data&action=edit
20:15:44 <elliott> A VAST IMPROVEMENT
20:15:47 <oerjan> that `flip` idiom i just started using in my BFQdeql might not be very widespread
20:15:52 <kmkr> really? i was thinking of idioms in normal languages
20:16:10 <monqy> kmkr: no
20:16:12 <elliott> kmkr: it's pretty much the same as the natural language meaning
20:16:15 <elliott> well
20:16:16 <elliott> of "idiomatic"
20:16:19 <elliott> not of "idiom" really
20:16:21 <oerjan> but otoh i haven't read that much other code
20:16:35 <monqy> kmkr: idiomatic is not a compound of idiot and automatic
20:16:35 <oerjan> kmkr: i think zzo38 was joking.
20:16:51 <zzo38> Yes I was joking.
20:16:52 <elliott> kmkr: what me and oerjan were trying to say is that zzo38's programs are written and structured in a very different way than most people skilled in haskell would structure them.
20:17:19 <elliott> thus reading them is unlikely to help a beginner learn the language :p
20:17:50 <zzo38> I don't think that necessarily means they won't help anyone
20:17:55 <kmkr> i see now
20:18:29 <oerjan> zzo38: i think they're more useful to get a wider perspective once you've learned the basics
20:18:50 <kmkr> probably i'll deviate from the usual way myself once i learn the basics
20:19:12 <elliott> might take more than learning the basics to be able to productively deviate from the usual style in haskell
20:19:53 <kmkr> that remains to be seen. i have no idea what to expect.
20:20:18 <kmkr> i'm basically starting from zero
20:20:24 <kmkr> with this kind of programming
20:20:27 <zzo38> I think you can learn the basics in any way you just do it in whatever way make most sensible for you.

20:33:01 <elliott> ie first row/col
20:33:04 <oerjan> ah.
20:33:10 <kmkr> guess what might look good? some javascript thing where languages would be circles that move in circles and lines with an arrow tip would connect them, pointing which language is implemented in which
20:33:15 <oerjan> well i suppose that should be possible to achieve.
20:33:46 <elliott> kmkr: you won't catch me implementing that any time soon :P
20:34:35 <kmkr> damn
20:37:03 <oerjan> elliott: it's already trying to use something called "wikitable plainlinks"
20:37:25 <ais523> plainlinks gets rid of the external link arrow on external links, right?
20:38:04 <oerjan> elliott: oh that was you. i was just about to remove the plainlinks part :P

20:57:17 <ais523> hmm, all the known diff algorithms seem to be O(n^2) worst case
20:57:24 <ais523> so why does diff not take ages in practice?
20:58:10 <elliott> because n is small
20:58:16 <elliott> and they're not worst-case
20:58:32 <ais523> the worst case seems pretty plausible in practice, though
20:58:44 <ais523> (one small change near the start, one small change near the end, arbitrary changes elsewhere)
21:01:39 <fizzie> ais523: Do the tools actually guarantee optimal diffs, though? They could just be using windows of reasonable size.
21:02:35 <ais523> fizzie: I was wondering about that
21:02:35 <elliott> that also is what i say was going to
21:02:40 <ais523> but this algo doesn't seem to have a concept of a window
21:02:47 <elliott> anyway, n is still small
21:03:06 * ais523 gets diffutils source
21:04:57 <fizzie> ais523: If it's the dynamic-programming tabular thing, I think you can retrofit a window into it by restricting things on the "diagonal" (+ fiddling), though I haven't thought this through.
21:06:19 <fizzie> "The basic algorithm is described in "An O(ND) Difference Algorithm and its Variations", Eugene W. Myers, Algorithmica Vol. 1 No. 2, 1986, pp. 251-266; and in "A File Comparison Program", Webb Miller and Eugene W. Myers, Software--Practice and Experience Vol. 15 No. 11, 1985, pp. 1025-1040." Is that / are those the things you were referring to?
21:07:02 <ais523> I was basing it on the dynamic programming algo in Wikipedia
21:07:30 <fizzie> That was a quotation from the diffutils infopage.
21:07:54 <ais523> hmm, I'd need a good academic library to get copies of those
21:07:59 <ais523> I have access to one, but not right now
21:08:02 <fizzie> Not really.
21:08:24 <fizzie> http://www.xmailserver.org/diff2.pdf
21:09:30 <elliott> fizzie: That's ILLEGAL!!!! (Possibly.)
21:10:04 <fizzie> They say it's O(ND) where D is the size of the edit script, which is small for reasonable files; and O(N+D^2) "random-case".
21:10:25 <ais523> elliott: meh, I can almost certainly access it legally if I just wait until tomorrow
21:10:25 <fizzie> I guess it's possible. It was the first google-hit for the paper title.
21:11:16 <elliott> http://citeseerx.ist.psu.edu/viewdoc/summary?doi= has a PDF.
21:11:21 <elliott> Or is CiteSeerX illegal too?
21:11:58 <fizzie> The "download link" there is to xmailserver.org.
21:12:26 <elliott> Yes, but it has a cached copy.
21:12:46 <fizzie> It's a weird place for that document.
21:13:26 <fizzie> I suppose a mail server could concievably make use of it, maybe, somehow, but still.
21:14:34 <elliott> oerjan: so, is self-BCT TC?
21:14:51 <oerjan> argh
21:14:54 <elliott> :D
21:17:40 <fizzie> ais523: Also to finish the quotation, "The algorithm was independently discovered as described in "Algorithms for Approximate String Matching", E. Ukkonen, Information and Control Vol. 64, 1985, pp. 100-118.". I think I've read that, or at least some string paper by Ukkonen.
21:17:46 <fizzie> (A Finnish name.)
21:18:03 <elliott> <fizzie> (Finnish people are very smart.)
21:18:15 <elliott> <fizzie> (They're speech recognition researchers and whatnot.)
21:18:20 <ais523> fizzie: finnish names are reasonably recognizable; I know a few from following Formula 1
21:19:14 <fizzie> Anyway, that last paper is available from the author's page at Helsinki University.
21:19:40 <elliott> ais523: Too bad they never reach the Finnish line.
21:20:01 <fizzie> Google Scholar finds it; I'd paste a link but I can't quite figure out how to get the actual PDF with this phone.
21:20:20 <ais523> elliott: I know that was a bad joke, but IIRC there have been Finnish Formula 1 world champions
21:20:23 <ais523> at least one, anyway
21:20:50 <fizzie> I think >1, though I don't really follow.
21:21:04 <ais523> nor do I nowadays, although I used to
21:21:08 <fizzie> If not world champions, then at least relatively successful drivers.
21:21:36 <elliott> <fizzie> (I do follow, of course. We Finns have to do everything we can to see the incredibly rare sight of a Finn winning at anything.)
21:21:45 <elliott> <fizzie> (But I can't let the foreigners know that.)
21:22:02 <fizzie> Mika Häkkinen and Kimi Räikkönen and Mika Salo are I think people who do things with cars.
21:22:41 <elliott> <fizzie> (MY FAVOURITES.)
21:23:38 <fizzie> Could you, I don't know, shut up or something?
21:24:08 <ais523> fizzie: hmm, people never write the accents on their names in the UK
21:24:14 <ais523> not even on the official commentary thing
21:24:18 <ais523> is it usual to omit them in Finland too?
21:24:22 <elliott> fizzie: I think your speech recognition software just malfunctioned. Did someone ask you a question after you said "Could you,"?
21:24:23 <fizzie> Nnno.
21:24:28 <elliott> The answer got included in your IRC line.
21:25:41 <fizzie> Also I thought Keke Rosberg was a rally driver, but apparently he's a F1 world champion (the first Finnish) too. There's some sort of an idiotic "song" about him.
21:25:51 <oerjan> kekekeke
21:26:02 <fizzie> "Kekekekekekekeke Roosberi Roosberi" or so on.

21:29:57 <ais523> elliott: if you're going to troll fizzie, at least make it vaguely good trolling
21:30:11 <elliott> ais523: This is pretty good by Finnish standards!!!
21:30:42 <oerjan> elliott: no, that would be Mämmi

21:37:59 <fizzie> The song, maybe: http://fi.wikipedia.org/wiki/Keke_Rosberg_formula_rock
21:38:34 <elliott> This song is about a family father, who bought a family car.
21:38:34 <elliott> "Dad bought the car, it's pretty tasteless."
21:38:34 <elliott> Father may be influenced by Rosberg driving style, and he was shipped over to tear around the extensive family of traffic.
21:38:34 <elliott> "The car is turbocharged, the driver is Urpo. Gas-presses, gas money is a loan, the family kuskaa, not realizing puskaa, where the bollard lurking ... »
21:38:35 <elliott> Father's racing ends when he drives into the woods, as a result will have a wheelchair .
21:38:37 <elliott> »... Father driving mettään not known kettään. Away from the father's concern, it is sufficient wheelchair ... »
21:38:40 <elliott> The boy may later own a moped, and you drive the same style as his father.
21:39:54 <fizzie> Right.

21:53:02 <fizzie> We had an Intelligent Design seminar at the university once, maybe six-seven years back. It was the weirdest thing.
21:53:19 <zzo38> fizzie: OK then explain
21:53:28 <RocketJSquirrel> wtf just happened
21:54:01 <fizzie> Did you know that the idea of the eye evolving is as ludicrous as an LP record that can be flipped around?
21:54:09 <fizzie> Or something like that.
21:54:28 <fizzie> It was mostly weird metaphors like that.
21:54:53 <zzo38> Some (not necessarily all) LP records can be flipped around. What is the point of metaphors like that?
21:55:45 <ais523> clearly an LP that can be flipped around couldn't possibly evolve, because what use would it be to have half a song on the other side?
21:56:12 <elliott> RocketJSquirrel: hi
21:56:27 <oerjan> the point of metaphors are to flip around, before they fall flat on the floor, butter side down.
21:56:28 <zzo38> Maybe if it is too long to fit on one side of a single record.

22:17:31 <fizzie> "Phat nom" Hoover.
22:17:38 <ais523> elliott: moderately good
22:17:41 <elliott> ais523: excellent
22:17:48 <ais523> although don't mention something like Dupdog or Xigxag, I don't have a clue with those
22:18:01 * RocketJSquirrel hands elliott a bagel with cream cheese.
22:18:04 <RocketJSquirrel> Prove this non-TC.
22:18:53 <elliott> ais523: well, I want to design a language like self-BCT or Clue (Keymaker), except even simpler
22:19:19 <ais523> hmm, I hate TC proofs for those sorts of languages
22:19:32 <elliott> that's why I asked for a sub-TC proof!
22:20:05 * RocketJSquirrel hands ais523 an onion bagel with sour cream and caramel sauce.
22:20:08 <RocketJSquirrel> Prove this non-TC.
22:20:37 * RocketJSquirrel >_> <_<
22:20:44 <oerjan> as any computation must remove a layer of the onion, it eventually terminates. Q.E.D.
22:20:53 <ais523> elliott: and the reverse :)
22:21:08 <olsner> bagels, are we talking about bagels now?
22:21:09 <RocketJSquirrel> Today we learn that oerjan doesn't know what a bagel is.
22:21:13 <olsner> bagels bagels bagels
22:21:50 <elliott> basically, the thing I don't like about self-BCT is that it has an IP
22:21:58 <elliott> separate to the notion of a leftmost bit
22:22:07 <elliott> ditto for Clue (Keymaker)
22:27:47 <elliott> or, wait, hmm
22:27:53 <elliott> does self-BCT have a separate IP?
22:27:54 <elliott> I can't tell
22:27:58 <oerjan> yes
22:28:25 <oerjan> it's pretty clear from the trace example
22:28:51 <elliott> right
22:29:45 <elliott> hmm...
22:30:00 <elliott> 0x -> x0
22:30:00 <elliott> 10x -> xx1
22:30:00 <elliott> 11x -> x1
22:30:05 <elliott> oerjan: BEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEP TC OR NOT TC
22:30:11 * elliott knows how to get oerjan to do things.
22:30:42 <oerjan> erm this is a rewriting system of sorts? and x is any string?
22:31:39 -!- pikhq has quit (Ping timeout: 240 seconds).
22:31:41 <elliott> every step, it examines the first bits according to the above pattern, and does the appropriate replacement, then starts again
22:31:42 <elliott> x is any bit
22:31:52 -!- pikhq has joined.
22:31:59 <oerjan> oh so just one bit
22:32:18 <oerjan> um that makes it clearly a pushdown automaton.
22:32:31 <elliott> so e.g. 0110 -> 1010 -> 1110 -> 110 -> 01 -> 10 -> 111
22:32:38 <elliott> -> 11
22:32:46 <elliott> (cyclic)
22:33:08 <elliott> oh hm, -> 1 i think
22:33:11 <elliott> same thing, anyway
22:33:21 <elliott> oerjan: even if it's cyclic?
22:33:47 <oerjan> oh so that's sent to the end?
22:34:01 -!- tzxn3 has quit (Quit: Leaving).
22:34:01 <elliott> um i'm not sure what you mean by sent to the end
22:34:16 <elliott> if the pattern-matching process reaches the end of the string, it wraps around, so to speak
22:34:19 <oerjan> elliott: you are not saying where the _rest_ of the string ends up
22:34:25 <elliott> oh it says the same.
22:34:30 <elliott> 0x* -> x0*
22:34:31 <elliott> 10x -> xx1*
22:34:34 <elliott> erm
22:34:36 <elliott> 10x* -> xx1*
22:34:37 <elliott> 11x* -> x1*
22:34:42 <elliott> where * is all the rest of the bits
22:35:00 <oerjan> elliott: and the pattern is always the leftmost bits? then it's a pushdown automaton.
22:35:24 <oerjan> and if it isn't, then you still have a separate ip like self-bct
22:35:30 <elliott> hmm... right
22:35:36 <elliott> FIRST ATTEMPT: FAILED
22:35:40 <elliott> :'(
22:35:55 -!- atehwa has quit (Read error: Operation timed out).
22:36:37 <elliott> ais523: hmm, is it actually possible for admins to see deleted revisions of images?
22:36:54 <ais523> not sure; it used not to be, but that mat have changed
22:38:14 <fizzie> Is it possible for admins to see deleted people?
22:38:31 <oerjan> I SEE DELETED PEOPLE
22:38:34 <elliott> oerjan: hmm, i think what i want is impossible
22:38:52 <elliott> oerjan: the thing i didn't like about self-bct/keymaker-clue was that they had "non-local" modifications
22:39:08 <oerjan> elliott: well i was thinking if you do 0x* -> *x0 instead...
22:39:09 <elliott> keymaker-clue adds things to the "beginning of the string", away from the IP
22:39:17 <elliott> self-BCT deletes the left of the string
22:39:24 <elliott> I wanted a possibly-TC language where everything was "local" to the IP
22:39:44 <elliott> oerjan: that could work. and /arguably/ doesn't violate my local requirement...
22:39:46 <elliott> oh, wait, yes it does
22:39:53 <elliott> it's equivalent to deleting the first few chars and appending to the end of the program
22:39:54 <oerjan> elliott: if you consider it a cycle, then doing things both at the beginning and end is still local
22:40:03 -!- atehwa has joined.
22:40:08 <elliott> hm right
22:40:46 <oerjan> and afair tag systems with a fixed program are like that, so _some_ set of rules for this will be tc.
22:40:55 <elliott> 0x* -> *x0
22:40:55 <elliott> 10x* -> xx1*
22:40:55 <elliott> 11x* -> x1*
22:40:57 <elliott> there's this, then
22:41:30 <oerjan> huh
22:41:43 <elliott> 0110 -> 1010
22:41:52 <elliott> -> 1110
22:43:12 <elliott> -> 110
22:43:24 <elliott> -> 01
22:43:40 <elliott> -> 10 -> 01 -> ...
22:43:46 <elliott> oerjan: what's the huh for, btw?
22:45:23 <elliott> oerjan: oh hm i think this doesn't work because the number of 0s is always <=
22:45:31 <elliott> so instead
22:45:32 <elliott> 0x* -> *x0
22:45:32 <elliott> 10x* -> xx1*
22:45:32 <elliott> 11x* -> x0*
22:45:40 <elliott> oh but then the same applies to 1s :P
22:45:53 <elliott> oh no it doesn't
22:45:58 <elliott> in fact, it didn't apply to the original either
22:45:59 <oerjan> my huh was because most of your rules still do things only at the beginning. i wasn't thinking like that.
22:46:25 <elliott> hmm... 100 -> 001 -> 100 -> 001 -> ...
22:46:27 <elliott> (with the original rules)
22:46:34 <elliott> oerjan: right.
22:47:23 <oerjan> the original never increases no. of 0's
22:47:57 <elliott> <elliott> 0x* -> *x0
22:47:57 <elliott> <elliott> 10x* -> xx1*
22:47:57 <elliott> <elliott> 11x* -> x1*
22:48:00 <elliott> this is what i meant by original
22:48:04 <elliott> ok i'll start actually versoning them
22:48:12 <oerjan> yes so did i
22:48:20 <elliott> oh hm
22:48:24 <elliott> 100 doesn't increase number of 0s
22:48:26 <elliott> because it eats an 0 too
22:48:36 <elliott> OK, let's call this v0:
22:48:36 <elliott> 0x* -> *x0
22:48:36 <elliott> 10x* -> x*x1
22:48:36 <elliott> 11x* -> x0*
22:48:58 <elliott> 100 -> 001 -> 100 -> 001 -> ... again
22:49:16 <elliott> 1100 -> 000 -> 000
22:50:11 <oerjan> not to mention _none_ of your suggestions increase the length of the string.
22:50:29 <elliott> oerjan: erm 10x* -> x*x1 does.
22:50:39 <oerjan> no it doesn't
22:54:31 <elliott> back
22:54:35 <elliott> oerjan: sorry, i'm an idiot.
22:55:47 <elliott> ok, let me try this again :P
22:56:04 <elliott> 0x* -> *x
22:56:04 <elliott> 1x* -> xx*1
22:56:04 <elliott> oh hm, broken
22:56:08 <oerjan> it all seems a little random.
22:56:10 <elliott> never decreases # of 1s
22:56:20 <elliott> oerjan: yes :(
22:56:29 <elliott> i was trying to simplify it there.
22:58:15 <oerjan> um 11* -> 11*1 does increase
22:58:28 <oerjan> oh wait you said decrease
22:58:50 <oerjan> that's not _necessarily fatal, see sqeql
22:58:53 <oerjan> *+_
22:59:03 <elliott> hmm
22:59:48 <elliott> 1101 -> [1|1]01 -> 11011 -> [1|1]011 -> 110111 -> ok this one is obvious
23:02:19 <elliott> 011 -> [0|1]1 -> 11 -> [1|1] -> 111
23:02:30 <elliott> -> [1|1]1 -> 1111
23:02:38 <elliott> -> [1|1]11 -> 11111 -> obvious
23:02:55 <elliott> pretty sure they all just start spamming 1s eventually
23:04:13 -!- augur has quit (Remote host closed the connection).
23:04:52 <fizzie> 10 - 001 - 10 - ...
23:05:23 <fizzie> Not that it's terribly interesting, but it doesn't spam 1s.
23:06:30 <elliott> OK, "anything with more than a negligble amount of 1s starts spamming 1s eventually".
23:07:30 <fizzie> 101010 - 0010101 - 101010 - ... and that can have an arbitrary amount of 1s. :p
23:08:12 <elliott> I knew you'd do that.
23:08:27 <elliott> You're like speech recognition software.
23:08:30 <elliott> Unforgiving and stupid. :(
23:10:55 <elliott> I think this is what they call a "burn".
23:11:31 <fizzie> 10100 - 001001 - 10010 - 000101 - 01010 - 0101 - 010 - 01 - 1 - don't know where to go from there.
23:16:06 <RocketJSquirrel> Can you recognize all patterns that won't halt?
23:16:35 <RocketJSquirrel> Are they always repeating?
23:18:19 <elliott> fizzie: It's cycli.
23:18:32 <elliott> So 1 falls under the 1x* rule, with x=1.
23:18:43 <elliott> Turning into 111.
23:21:15 <shachaf> If I compile a C++ program with -g, what's a simple way to match instructions to source code lines?
23:21:36 <elliott> gdb
23:21:44 <elliott> Wait, you said simple.
23:22:25 <RocketJSquirrel> Roll your own DWARF reader
23:24:28 <fizzie> Ask the assembler to make a listing for you, with source lines as comments.
23:25:15 <elliott> Ask rms.
23:26:22 <RocketJSquirrel> Ask rjs.
23:26:27 * RocketJSquirrel zooooom!
23:26:35 <shachaf> Oops, I wasn't compiling with -g.
23:26:52 <RocketJSquirrel> shachaf: Enjoy an hour and a half of recompiling to get that option in place.
23:27:48 <shachaf> RocketJSquirrel: This is one file.
23:27:54 <shachaf> With a few hundred lines.

23:29:06 <shachaf> Well, not most.
23:31:07 <shachaf> So why is lea 0x1(%rdx),%r8d taking 90% of the program's CPU time?
23:31:29 <shachaf> That doesn't make sense. Maybe it's the line right before.
23:31:35 <fizzie> You increment a lot, maybe.
23:33:26 <oerjan> sir incsalot
23:34:16 <fizzie> Per-instruction timings, are, like, so *fancy*. (--Mr. just-instruments-functions-with-gprof.)
23:36:26 <shachaf> If only I had functions. :-(
23:36:33 <fizzie> ais523: Speaking of nothing at all (but web'o'flies ~~ strace), I heard resize2fs breaks down if you try to run it under strace.
23:36:50 <shachaf> YAY, STRACE
23:37:02 <shachaf> I ran gdb under strace yesterday.
23:37:18 <elliott> I ran strace under gdb under strace yesterday.
23:37:23 <olsner> I gotta try debugging gdb with gdb one time
23:38:10 <olsner> hmm, *some time
23:38:25 <shachaf> I was trying to figure out how gdb implements "call"
23:38:43 <olsner> kind of like how it does print, but without the printing part
23:39:13 <shachaf> Except that call *does* print the result.
23:39:26 <shachaf> But fine. I was trying to figure out how gdb implements "print".
23:39:34 <olsner> call prints too?
23:39:51 <fizzie> There's a thing called SystemTap which is, like, the fanciest thing since sliced bread when it comes to tracing, http://sourceware.org/systemtap/tutorial/Tracing.html
23:39:56 <olsner> maybe call just has the option not to print, so that it can handle functions without return values
23:40:05 <ais523> fizzie: weird; why would an ext2 resizer break under strace?
23:40:22 <ais523> only thing I can think of is that it has timing-sensitive critical sections, or something
23:40:38 <ais523> perhaps it should be impossible to ptrace a process at realtime priority
23:41:17 <fizzie> ais523: "Reads from disk normally are never short except in the case of disk
23:41:17 <fizzie> errors. strace causes this not to be true, but I don't intend to "fix"

23:45:12 <elliott> No.
23:45:55 <fizzie> ais523: It was in the context of attaching strace to a running process; maybe that could interrupt a read?
