00:35:01 <HackEgo> select/select is a very versatile construct: it waits for events, retrieves data from tables, creates a list from elements of an input list that satisfy a condition, a dropdown list element, an event for when selection changes, branches between multiple arms, conditional between two expressions, prints a text-based menu prompt in a loop, and more.

01:59:33 <Phantom_Hoover> hppavilion, probably write some content for the page other than a declaration of its existence before creating it

02:00:50 <Phantom_Hoover> ok, second concern: having subpages of a page that doesn't exist is Wrong and Bad
02:01:09 <oerjan> izabera: maybe those zeros are meant to be filled in by the linker?
02:02:14 * oerjan is guessing wildly as he doesn't really know assembly
02:04:06 <oerjan> hppavilion: you'd be in so much trouble if i hadn't given up catching to my esolangs.org backlog
02:04:19 <mauris> izabera: that looks like an unresolved external reference maybe?
02:05:34 * oerjan thinks mauris may be vaguely saying the same thing as he is
02:05:56 <mauris> oops, that is what i meant, yeah
02:06:09 <izabera> i thought it meant to jump to address +0
02:06:41 -!- Phantom_Hoover has quit (Read error: Connection reset by peer).
02:10:04 <mauris> izabera: is that a decompiled .o file, and is stringconcat from some library?
02:10:04 <izabera> yes to the first question, and that function is in the same file
02:10:04 -!- hppavilion has quit (Ping timeout: 265 seconds).
02:10:04 <oerjan> izabera: oh. in that case, i think it's tail call optimization: stringconcat _is_ the following line.
02:10:04 <oerjan> or something like that.
02:10:09 <oerjan> or well, proper TCO shouldn't leave in a call at all, should it? but i don't know the mnemonics.
02:10:32 <oerjan> (when the call goes to the next line)
02:11:29 <oerjan> izabera: ok, put differently, when stringconcat is on the next instruction, then the relative address to it _is_ just zeros.
02:12:09 <fizzie> izabera: If you got that thing out of disassembling a .o file, those generally have 0s in places where there are relocations.
02:13:06 <oerjan> fizzie: but why would there be a relocation within the same file...
02:14:03 <izabera> indeed all the call's in my file are e8 00 00 00 00
02:14:17 <fizzie> oerjan: Well, I didn't read that part. But it's usually trivial to find out, especially if it's from objdump -- just ask it to produce the relocations.
02:15:09 -!- AlexR42 has quit (Quit: My Mac has gone to sleep. ZZZzzz…).
02:15:26 <izabera> 1bf: e8 00 00 00 00 callq 1c4 <func+0x13>
02:15:28 <izabera> 1c0: R_X86_64_PC32 stringconcat-0x4
02:15:30 <izabera> 1c4: 48 89 d8 mov %rbx,%rax
02:16:04 <fizzie> Yes, so: at address 1c0, put in the 32-bit PC-relative displacement to the symbol stringconcat-4.
02:16:33 <izabera> what are some good resources to learn more about this?
02:16:44 <fizzie> The -4 is of course because the operand of call is measured as a relative offset from the instruction following the call, while the relocation is in terms of the location of the relocation.
02:19:26 <fizzie> Hrm. I've just generally puzzled these things out. There was a relatively good article somewhere mostly about how dynamic libraries on Linux-y systems conventionally work, covering some of this stuff, but possibly not exactly what you'd be after.
02:20:58 <fizzie> As for why it's a relocation when the function is in the same file, I think the semantics require you must be able to override the symbol resolution at link time when it's a global symbol.
02:21:36 <fizzie> Compare how the calls to f() and g() are handled differently in h() here: http://sprunge.us/TPMc
02:24:17 <fizzie> Yes. Well, or arguably because of what f being static mean to the symbol binding.
02:24:31 <fizzie> 5: 0000000000000000 11 FUNC LOCAL DEFAULT 1 f
02:24:33 <fizzie> 9: 000000000000000b 11 FUNC GLOBAL DEFAULT 1 g
02:26:30 <fizzie> That's perhaps a bit vague. But in general I would expect a JIT to know exactly where the functions it wants to call currently happen to be, and therefore be able to generate code with the proper addresses.
02:28:29 <fizzie> (The functions, and the code it's generating.)
02:29:29 <fizzie> If you end up needing to do symbol lookups by name in a program written in C on a POSIXy system, there's the dlsym function from <dlfcn.h>.
02:30:07 <izabera> but that looks up the address of a library function
02:30:23 <fizzie> It can also look up the address of a function in your program.
02:30:43 <fizzie> Or any symbol, not just a function.
02:31:11 -!- J_Arcane has joined.
02:31:35 <fizzie> Of course that's only relevant if you want to go from a string to the symbol.
02:36:48 <izabera> so once you gets the address, you replace e8 00 00 00 00 with e8 <actual address> ?
02:37:49 <fizzie> Well, the displacement.
02:38:34 <fizzie> The difference between the actual address and the address of the byte immediately after the last 00.
02:41:41 <fizzie> (And you'll have to do something else than a near call -- an e8 -- if your displacement doesn't fit in a signed 32-bit integer, which is quite possible if the target is in a library somewhere, and the generated code is in some random page from mmap.)
02:42:30 <fizzie> s/near/relative/ maybe.
02:46:26 <fizzie> That's from the instruction set reference.
02:47:01 <fizzie> "E8 cd CALL rel32 Call near, relative, displacement relative to next instruction. 32-bit displacement sign extended to 64-bits in 64-bit mode."
02:52:03 <izabera> the reference is that 1500 pages pdf on the intel website?
02:52:19 <fizzie> My copy is 4161 pages.
02:52:39 <fizzie> I guess the volume-2-only might be about that size.
02:52:44 <fizzie> But, I mean, it's got an index.
02:53:10 <fizzie> You don't have to read through AAA, AAD, AAM, AAS etc. in order to get to CALL.
02:54:13 <fizzie> Yes, but you don't want a call far.
02:54:21 <fizzie> Sorry for using the word "near" and potentially confusing you there. :p
02:55:55 <fizzie> Far calls segue into a topic that's even more complicated, and hopefully not very relevant from the perspective of a user-mode program these days.
02:58:14 <fizzie> You could use the CALL r/m64 form to make a call with an absolute 64-bit address. It'll still be a "near" call, technically.
02:59:13 <fizzie> In fact, if you want to ask a compiler for help, the best bet is to set a function pointer to some arbitrary number, and call that. I mean, that's pretty much what you'll be wanting to do.
03:00:17 <izabera> yes that was my next question
03:00:29 <fizzie> http://sprunge.us/CdYL -- like that.
03:02:22 <fizzie> Just, you know, without the part that moves rax to memory and back again. Maybe add an -O2. Except that actually does the tail call optimization and turns it into a jmpq *%rax instead.
03:09:11 <fizzie> Think I'll be sleeping now.

07:36:21 <hppavilion> How is redefining Emmental symbols much different from Function definition?
07:38:12 <hppavilion> Is it because if you redefine an Emmental symbol to include itself, the new definition is observed in the redefinition?
07:39:05 <hppavilion> I ask because I'm attempting to make a more... friendly emmental. One that we could trick programmers into seriously using.
07:39:57 -!- bender| has joined.
07:42:29 <oerjan> hppavilion: it's not that different.
07:42:49 <oerjan> and the new definition is _not_ observed inside itself.
07:43:05 <oerjan> (if it were, the new function could never halt)
07:43:08 <hppavilion> oerjan: So it's basically just function redefinition?

07:43:41 <hppavilion> bender|: I'm making an Emmental (or more accurately Mascarpone)-like language we can trick programmers into using!

21:32:52 <ais523> Taneb: I think you can do it even assuming that the level has only a finite amount that isn't open space
21:33:24 <ais523> the problem there is generating an infinite supply of enemies
21:35:44 <\oren\> see, suppose you come across a ], and the current cell isn't 0. finding the next instruction, depending on the interpreter, might take O(1) time beacuse we know where it is, or O(n) time to search for the matching [.
21:36:53 <\oren\> similarly, an [ might take O(1) or O(n).
21:38:15 <\oren\> so, I call these variants bf, bf[1N], bf[N1] and bf[NN]
21:38:31 -!- hppavilion has joined.
21:39:46 <\oren\> a naive interpreter would typically implement bf[NN], while my stupid trick interpreter is bf[N1].
21:40:32 <\oren\> a jit type thing would make it bf
21:40:42 <ais523> or just using a compiler
21:41:05 <fizzie> fungot does bf in those terms, though the distinction sounds only relevant if you're generating a piece of brainfuck code that depends on the size of some problem of interest.
21:41:05 <fungot> fizzie: ( for some unfathomable reason i didn't do cs but math is of three elements.) are becoming more and more annoying
21:42:21 <hppavilion> Is the concept of "coproduct" (as seen on TV! If all you watch is documentaries on Category Theory) applicable to normal numbers?
21:42:45 <lambdabot> nortti said 8h 6m 9s ago: ESOSC D3 and D4 never got approved and seems like the drafts got removed
21:43:18 <fizzie> If you're talking about the time complexity of some particular BF program to do a particular thing, which is possibly more common, the operations would still be constant-time.
21:44:36 <\oren\> this is only for comparing interpreters, not programs
21:45:56 <\oren\> BF[NN] means that when the interpreter wants to find the [ that a ] jumps to, it has to scan the code, and the same for ] and [
21:46:44 <\oren\> BF[NN] means [ and ] have O(N) time complexity
21:46:47 <ais523> \oren\: it's also possible that, say, < or > are O(N)
21:47:03 <ais523> and + and - might scale on the order of the magnitude being increased/decreased, on the position on the tape, or both
21:48:01 <hppavilion> I like the idea of a programming language where the interpreter is a first-class object :)
21:48:25 <hppavilion> In fact, I'm making a Mascarpone-derived language where /everything/ is modifyable and anonymous. Well, as much as possible.
21:48:45 <hppavilion> And it's readable and not obviously esoteric, so we can trick uncautious programmers into using it seriously >:)
21:53:59 <ais523> wait, would a zombie turn around if it ran into a yeti?
21:54:57 <hppavilion> Then the world would self-destruct for the good of the rest of the universe
21:56:47 <ais523> this seems to give us unlimited storage
21:56:51 <ais523> if an awkward storage to use
21:57:08 <ais523> even with finitely many enemies
21:57:28 <ais523> I guess what we do is, we have two yeti/zombie pairs to represent one counter
21:57:53 <ais523> turn the zombies around every time they get back home (this is easy)
21:58:16 <ais523> then we can encode an unbounded integer in the difference in time that it takes the two zombies to arrive
21:58:27 <ais523> yes, similar idea, except it's all in timings, nothing in payloads

21:59:03 -!- codergeek42 has joined.
21:59:03 <ais523> next question is how to detect that the two zombies are arriving with a particular time difference
21:59:10 <ais523> we could use a separate zombie at right angles, I guess
21:59:16 <ais523> I can't think of a way to do it with a slime
21:59:44 <ais523> hmm, maybe unless the slime was walking on a chain of confusion traps
22:02:18 <ais523> oh, a blue sime can only move in one direction if you place the confusion traps at alternating locations like I did
22:02:27 <ais523> you could get a yellow slime to move in a circuit though I think
22:04:30 <ais523> got it: you conceptually divide the grid into a larger grid of 2x2 squares
22:04:38 <ais523> then make that into a checkerboard
22:04:49 <ais523> wait, this depends a lot on the timing
22:14:01 <hppavilion> I just gave someone advice on how to get out of a coding rut. I feel so smart. I hope it worked. I would feel bad if it didn't.
22:14:34 <ais523> oh gah, this is nondeterministic?
22:14:52 <ais523> or at least, I seem to be able to throw off the timing via movement that's a /long/ way from the beat
22:16:18 <tswett> "Due to my native language ain't English, sorry for all the mistakes I make." - I hope that was intentional.
22:16:27 <tswett> Sounds intentional if you ask me.

22:16:57 <hppavilion> I have been tempted to make a post ending with "Sorry for the bad english, I repeatedly google translated it so it wouldn't sound natural"

22:17:12 <HackEgo> Learned 'iyam': IYAM is like IANAL, except yam instead of anal.
22:18:03 <ais523> hppavilion: you must actually repeatedly google translate it, and repeatedly google translate that bit too
22:18:11 <ais523> hppavilion: "I am not a lawyer"
22:18:30 <ais523> it's the usual disclaimer when you talk about the law, on the basis that pretending to be a lawyer is illegal
22:18:41 <ais523> I think tswett made IYAM up
22:21:33 <tswett> hppavilion: It is, it is, there it it, it will need to translate it, Google of it, in English, to me, is, 1 it to the shame of the throat for what is bad also because it does not listen Although not part, I, of course, but, you repeat the position that it has not been has of placement
22:21:44 <tswett> hppavilion: "if you ask me"
22:29:50 <tswett> That translation occasionally included "I am sorry for the English" or "I pity the English".
22:31:33 <int-e> wow, fungot writes better english than that...
22:31:34 <fungot> int-e: c's syntax?' you have not scrolled down at all. the vote selected a black white logo!
22:32:27 <int-e> (But I guess fungot is cheating a bit)
22:32:28 <fungot> int-e: i'm pretty depressed myself: not a directory.' i'm curious where you learned it. i prefer minimal changes if any to paredit.el, but is also quite nice, imho
22:33:19 <fizzie> fungot: Look, just because it's not a directory is no reason to get depressed.
22:33:20 <fungot> fizzie: after k-f-newline has been enqueued, start is the in-range's end, and you write the missing tests
22:33:24 <ais523> tswett: "I am sorry for the English" is actually ambiguous, it could mean either "sorry for my English" or "I pity the English"

22:34:33 <ais523> oh, ambiguous three ways :-)
22:34:33 <fizzie> As in, sorry for what they did to your country, or some-such.
22:35:40 <fizzie> We went through the National Maritime Museum in Greenwich today while thereabouts, and it seemed to be mostly about the slave trade across the Atlantic, and the part where the East India Company filled China with opium.
22:36:01 <fizzie> At least they're not trying to sugarcoat things.

23:08:05 <Taneb> ais523, what about "I'm sorry about all the English people that I brought here"?
23:08:18 <ais523> Taneb: oh yes, that works too
23:08:29 <ais523> although it might be the same meaning as fizzie's
23:08:44 <Taneb> I don't think it is
23:17:31 <zzo38> I have added a few commands into XISYNTH such as: COM$ FCO IF LPF~ RBPF RHPF RLPF WG2
23:20:11 <zzo38> What is it configuring?
23:21:09 <hppavilion> zzo38: It's a general-purpose CFG with the minor side-benefit of being TC
23:21:31 <zzo38> OK, although possibly many program will do anyways
23:22:34 <zzo38> But if the format has a C syntax then you can even use C preprocessor with it, without the problem!
23:23:09 <hppavilion> zzo38: Yes, but this is a dedicated configuration file
23:23:50 <zzo38> Yes, although I am also saying that such format could have a syntax compatible with C preprocessor and then you can use it with C preprocessor
23:26:46 <Taneb> hppavilion, that makes me think of nix
