00:01:19 <ais523> I'd better do that before NH4 is released
00:09:50 <elliott> GUID4 is the only one people actually use, I think...
00:10:09 <elliott> I forget what 3 and 5 are, though.
00:10:24 <elliott> I don't think it's a "GUID4" unless you're using (pseudo)random bits, though.
00:10:30 <elliott> (okay, a hash is like a PRNG with a very bad seed, or something.)
00:29:55 <ais523> elliott: 3 and 5 are the hash-based ones
00:30:02 <elliott> ah
00:30:14 <ais523> MD5 and SHA1 respectively

00:30:38 <elliott> :/
00:30:41 <elliott> not great
00:30:53 <ais523> indeed
00:31:12 <ais523> I used to use MD5 because it was the only hashing algorithm that worked with the oldest Perl version I supported
00:31:24 <ais523> in the end, I decided that that was just too awful, and dropped support for that version

17:06:28 <orin> what's the incantation to have ls show the size of a directory properly
17:07:11 <ais523> depends on what you mean by "properly"
17:07:27 <orin> I mean the total size of all files inside it, plus it
17:07:55 <ais523> ls can't do that because the information isn't stored anywhere, it has to be calculated and that's really timeconsuming
17:08:00 <ais523> the program you probably want is called du
17:08:14 <orin> god damn it, windows shows that information
17:08:22 <orin> aaaaa
17:08:38 <orin> does du also ahow size of fiels
17:08:42 <ais523> orin: Windows shows it in the GUI but takes a while to calculate it; I don't think dir (the equivalent of ls) shows it
17:08:53 <ais523> you can use "du -a" to show size of files too
17:09:06 <b_jonas> it's scary what crazy dangerous and complicated hooks some people in informatics will try to jump through for 20% performance increases
17:09:10 <cpressey> Windows shows it growing in the UI, with no indication of how far it's gotten yet, which is bad UX imo
17:09:13 <cpressey> Ubuntu does this too
17:09:22 <ais523> also, you might want to use "--apparent-size" if you care about the size of the files themselves, rather than the amount of disk they use u
17:09:24 <ais523> *up
17:09:27 <cpressey> because copying Windows is always a great idea
17:09:33 <ais523> or "-h" or "--si" to get the answer in sensible units
17:09:40 <ais523> cpressey: it's probably the lazy impl
17:11:13 <orin> so the incantation is "du -sh --apparent-size".
17:11:42 <ais523> depending on what it is you're trying to calculate, perhaps
17:11:51 <ais523> it has options because people don't always use it for the same purpose
17:11:57 <ais523> in particular, when I want to know the total size of a directory
17:12:04 <ais523> it's normally because I want to know how much disk space it costs me
17:12:08 <ais523> so I leave out --apparent-size
17:12:13 <ais523> (I think "du" stands for "disk usage")
17:12:23 <orin> isn't THAT the apparent size?
17:12:30 <b_jonas> yes, I usually say either du -a or du -s
17:12:37 <b_jonas> sometimes with a sort after
17:13:43 <ais523> orin: no, apparent size is the number of bytes you'd get if you read every byte in the file
17:13:54 <ais523> which could be less than the size on disk due to metadata, padding, and the like
17:14:00 <ais523> or more because the file is stored in a compressed format
17:14:18 <Melvar> Or sparsely.
17:14:34 <ais523> that's a special case of a compressed format, IMO
17:14:45 <Melvar> Conceded.
17:15:04 <Melvar> It might be the most common case for this purpose though.
17:15:09 <orin> ais523: i ... see. ok, so the incantation to see how much free space I need on a card to put my music on it, is du -s ~/music
17:15:44 <ais523> silly hashtable impl: a sparse file where addresses in your file correspond to possible keys directly
17:16:11 <ais523> orin: yep, you probably want to add --si to that (rather than -h) because people size storage devices in powers of 10 rather than powers of 2
17:16:26 <cpressey> ais523: I've seen that done on memory with hashconsing - the address of the object is its hash value
17:16:50 <cpressey> which is, y'know, ... interesting
17:17:10 <orin> cpressey: how can that work?
17:17:14 <ais523> presumably a lot of mmap
17:17:53 <ais523> plus some trick to place your stack somewhere your hashtable won't touch
17:17:57 <orin> two identical objects can have different addresses
17:18:08 <cpressey> orin: not if you hashcons them :)
17:18:10 <ais523> orin: not in this case!
17:18:18 <ais523> cpressey: I assume all objects have to be immutable
17:18:32 <cpressey> ais523: my memory of it is fuzzy but I assume so too
17:18:34 <ais523> and I'm not sure how you do deallocation; refcounting?
17:19:16 <orin> oh, so we are replacing addresses with hashes, not replacing hashs with addresses
17:19:28 <cpressey> I think it was on a 680x0 architecture fwiw. no mmap. stack is just... tucked away somewhere nice
17:19:32 <ais523> orin: right
17:20:03 <ais523> cpressey: mmap and friends would be helpful here because it lets your address space be larger than your physical memory
17:20:36 <cpressey> yes, that would remove that limitation
17:22:58 <orin> hmm... if it isn't immutable, then change to one sub-object changes the hashes of every object that points to it .: it has to be immutable
17:25:42 <orin> It also means that "does the object X exist" is a reasonable question. In C for example you'd have to iterate through memory, with hashconsig you can just use that hash
17:30:57 <cpressey> it is... interesting. i might try to dig up the paper (which included a bunch of stuff about trees vs hash tables for some reason)
17:31:55 <cpressey> teach kids to code so they can build things with love and change the world
17:32:12 <cpressey> (unrelated)
17:32:38 <ais523> orin: there are two problems with that question
17:32:42 <ais523> one is hash collisions
17:33:00 <ais523> the other is, in order to be able to ask the question, you need the object in the first place and thus the object definitely does exist
17:33:22 <ais523> (I found both of these problems when writing my Perl memory profiler, which had a "does this object exist" as one of its side functionalities)
17:33:42 <orin> ais523: not if the question is asked from a degug envionment?
17:33:56 <ais523> orin: right, or if you're asking the question of the hash rather than of the object
17:34:04 <ais523> Devel::TrackAllocations' testsuite uses it

21:01:53 <elliott> assuming it's using the same filesystem
21:01:57 <elliott> also ignoring things like deduplication etc.

22:23:28 <oerjan> if that _also_ shows up broken, you need to fix your unicode.
22:23:29 <b_jonas> orin: you should try to set your irc client to use utf-8 encoding
22:23:48 <orin> I am seeig J i Ao A~ Matou Ao upsidedown !
22:23:58 <b_jonas> sadly IRC doesn't have a single definite encoding, people have been known to use various single-byte national encodings on different channels just a few years ago
22:24:11 <b_jonas> these days they seem to have converged to utf-8, at least in the parts of irc I frequent
22:24:24 <boily> orin: heed the b_jonasadvice. utf8ify your client.
22:24:35 <oerjan> utf-8 is definitely the recommended encoding for this channel.

22:27:15 <oerjan> yes that is pesky

22:32:20 <b_jonas> oerjan: exists as in distinct from r, or as an allophone?

22:45:56 -!- AnotherTest has quit (Remote host closed the connection).
22:45:58 <b_jonas> ais523: one thing that might help is that even in English, a minority of people pronounce “new” and “during” with “ny” and “gy” sounds. this is because those words originally have a [j] sound after the consonant, and “j” has a place of articulation (tongue position) similar to “ny” and “gy”
22:46:30 <b_jonas> so the “n” and “d” changes, just like how even in English “n” usually changes to the “ng” sound before a “g” or to an “m” sound before a “b”.
22:46:38 <ais523> hmm, how close is English "j" to Hungarian "dgy"
22:46:49 <b_jonas> (most people just pronounce those words with “n” and “d” though.)
22:47:02 <b_jonas> ais523: those are the same
22:47:07 <ais523> right
22:47:12 <b_jonas> no wait
22:47:24 <b_jonas> English “j” is the same as Hungarian “dzs”
22:47:27 <b_jonas> different
22:47:28 <ais523> oh right, yes
22:47:30 <ais523> like in your name
22:47:33 <b_jonas> what?
22:47:36 <b_jonas> no, not in my name
22:47:38 <ais523> the "zs" I mean
22:47:41 <b_jonas> ah
22:47:42 <ais523> you don't have a "d"
22:47:46 <b_jonas> yes
22:47:49 <ais523> I forgot "zs" was even a letter
22:48:02 <b_jonas> “zs” is a letter even in Englihs, it occurs in “measure” most famously

22:53:31 <Phantom_Hoover> b_jonas, you mean it's a phoneme in english
22:53:58 <Phantom_Hoover> english doesn't use 'zs' to represent that sound
22:56:13 <ais523> I'm not sure English has a name for it at all
22:56:19 <ais523> although I agree that it is in the middle of the word "measure"
22:56:36 <ais523> I guess "zsh" is the closest I can get using normal English spelling

23:24:12 <int-e> ISTR that ISTR has several meanings.
23:25:08 <ais523> doesnt it basically always start "I seem to"
23:25:15 <ais523> the fourth word can vary
23:25:41 <int-e> A dictionary suggested "It Stands To Reason".
23:26:57 <ais523> I disagree with that dictionary
23:27:12 <orin> what does that mean?
23:28:00 <orin> ISTR hearing "stands to reason" in a pratchett book.
23:28:46 <orin> But I don't know what it's actualy supposed to mean
23:28:55 <int-e> "It Stands To Reason That" is more or less equivalent to "In My Opinion"
23:29:11 <orin> ah
23:29:55 <int-e> (Though conceivably you could use it for opinions not your own. "One Might Argue That" is perhaps closer.)
23:30:38 <olsner> one can argue literally anything, so that's pretty meaningless
23:30:42 <ais523> I thought "it stands to reason" sort-of implies "a sufficiently intelligent person could deduce that"
23:31:12 <int-e> Yeah, note the implied insult of your intelligence if you happen to disagree.
23:31:25 <int-e> I guess... s/insult of/insult to/
23:32:48 <ais523> int-e: yep, I think that's part of it
23:49:30 <FireFly> I thought it was "I seem to recall" (which is not very different to 'remember', though)
23:51:17 <int-e> That's quite possible, I tend to use synonyms interchangeably
23:52:49 <int-e> Hmm, is there a special term for words that have an overlap in meaning, so they can be synonymous in some contexts but not in others?
23:53:55 <ais523> not sure
23:54:08 <ais523> etymologically "synonym" should be that, I guess (with two words that /always/ mean the same thing "isonyms")
23:55:48 <int-e> Thanks. "Words can be synonymous when meant in certain senses, even if they are not synonymous in all of their senses."
