06:53:44 <zzo38> "UTCE" http://zzo38computer.org/textfile/miscellaneous/utce is a better character set for making terminal emulators with, than Unicode, which is especially bad for that purpose
06:54:59 <hppavilion[1]> zzo38: Does it have box drawing?
06:55:08 <lifthrasiir> zzo38: it is a well-doomed replication of ISO 2022 I think
06:55:19 <zzo38> hppavilion[1]: Yes it does have all of the box drawing
06:55:25 <hppavilion[1]> zzo38: STFH
06:55:35 <hppavilion[1]> (STFH is the opposite of GTFO)
06:56:16 <zzo38> (The PC character set has all of the box drawing, and all characters in the PC character set are included in UTCE)
06:56:37 <adu> hppavilion[1]: !
06:56:52 <hppavilion[1]> adu: &
06:57:01 <hppavilion[1]> adu: I made a GUI application for generating SBLs
06:57:06 <zzo38> Actually there are also a few additional box drawing stuff in the DEC and Infocom and Commodore sets, and those are also all included.
07:00:32 <adu> hppavilion[1]: what's an sbl?
07:01:45 <hppavilion[1]> adu: Stack-based langauge
07:02:02 <adu> so, like forth or factor?
07:02:25 <zzo38> lifthrasiir: It is far simpler than ISO 2022 actually, and is capable of being used on the same system as ISO 2022.
07:02:26 <adu> or PostScript?
07:04:05 <lifthrasiir> zzo38: isn't that bytes marked with * are used to switch the current bank?
07:04:18 <zzo38> (You can use the DEC character set selections together with it, and use a single font with it. Therefore the terminal emulator can be fulfilled without use of Unicode or ISO-2022-JP or whatever else like that)
07:04:42 <zzo38> lifthrasiir: No, the bytes marked with * are not used in UTCE, and may be used for data transfer functions and/or terminal control functions.
07:05:03 <hppavilion[1]> adu: Yes, like forth or factor, but stupider
07:05:15 <hppavilion[1]> adu: Really, it just prompts you with random symbols and you describe them
07:05:24 <hppavilion[1]> adu: It's for mass-production of low-quality esolangs
07:05:46 <zzo38> (The bytes marked with 0 also, if not the second byte of a two-byte code, may be used for terminal controls, such as to emulate VT100 character set selections.)
07:05:48 <dingbat> hppavilion[1]: Does Befunge count as an SBL?
07:06:23 <lifthrasiir> then it actually is [\t\r\n...] | [\x20-\x7e] (?# bank 0 characters ) | [\x80-\xff] [\x20-\x7e\x80-\xff] (?# double-width fixed bank characters ) | [\x80-\xff] [\x00-\x1f] (?# bank override ) ?
07:07:18 <lifthrasiir> then this is much worse than ISO 2022 in terms of total number of characters supported.
07:07:51 <zzo38> I change the document a bit to clarify it
07:08:29 <hppavilion[1]> dingbat: Yes.
07:08:41 <lifthrasiir> zzo38: for example, how would you support GB 2312 in the same framework?
07:08:49 <hppavilion[1]> dingbat: Anything with a stack as the primary data structure is an SBL
07:09:30 <dingbat> hppavilion[1]: Gotcha. (I'm particularly fond of Befunge as far as esoterics go, and working on a similar language)
07:11:11 <zzo38> lifthrasiir: Currently there is no Chinese supporting, although you can write in Japanese. (There is also no Korean) It could possibly be added into the double wide characters though, although currently they are defined as only JIS X 0213
07:11:40 <hppavilion[1]> dingbat: Befunge is the best
07:11:47 <hppavilion[1]> dingbat: I once tried making a production Fungeoid
07:11:56 <lifthrasiir> so is it going to be a multi-byte (larger than 2 bytes) encoding?
07:12:00 <hppavilion[1]> dingbat: (Also, I wrote most of the fungeoid article on the wiki :))
07:12:09 <zzo38> No, it is only 2 bytes
07:12:23 <lifthrasiir> then you need some kind of switch characters, and it is identical to ISO 2022
07:12:35 <zzo38> I would expect that you can do without simplified Chinese
07:13:02 <lifthrasiir> I believe a flat namespace used by Unicode is much better than tons of separated namespaces
07:13:37 <dingbat> hppavilion[1]: oh neat. I really like how fantastically easy it is to make a simple fungeoid interpreter
07:13:53 <zzo38> It is better yes, although the rest of Unicode is worst.
07:14:44 <lifthrasiir> you should have tried TRON first :p
07:16:46 <zzo38> However I believe my design can be reasonable even without simplified Chinese included. (Arabic and Hebrew and zero-width spaces and combining characters will never be included; all of these things are against this design.)
07:16:48 <b_jonas> I wonder, did ais523 deliberately name Underload to make people create an abbreviation ambiguous with the already famous language unlambda, in a similar way as brainfuck and befunge causes problems?
07:17:54 <adu> hppavilion[1]: so, kind of like a built-your-own-with-five-words kind of esolang
07:18:49 <b_jonas> Because if it's so, then we need another language as successful as those whose name matches I.*C.*
07:19:34 -!- augur has quit (Remote host closed the connection).
07:19:44 <hppavilion[1]> adu: Yes
07:19:58 <zzo38> UTCE is not designed for typography; it is designed for screen displaying on a grid-based display with simple encoding/decoding, so there is no such things as hyphenations and ligatures and so on that can be supported (actually an implementation probably could, but it would be a bad idea).
07:20:00 <hppavilion[1]> adu: Except it can have upwards of 18000 instructions
07:21:04 <adu> hppavilion[1]: well, I was thinking of something like "C without semicolons" or "Lisp with indentation"
07:22:00 <b_jonas> zzo38: like cp437?
07:22:13 <lifthrasiir> adu: C without semicolons? http://ioccc.org/1988/litmaath.c (+ s/;/{}/)
07:22:46 <lifthrasiir> it is not really hard.
07:23:24 <zzo38> b_jonas: Yes, but with more characters including DEC characters.
07:23:42 <hppavilion[1]> Why do I try to read ioccc code?
07:23:58 <hppavilion[1]> I DON'T EVEN KNOW C NORMALLY
07:24:12 <adu> hppavilion[1]: I do
07:24:32 <adu> I've written thousands of things in C
07:26:52 <zzo38> (Also, avoids the confusion of graphics with control codes)
07:29:11 <adu> hppavilion[1]: it looks like it's an implementation of echo
07:29:34 <hppavilion[1]> adu: Ah
07:30:15 <adu> only with spaces replaced with \n
07:31:10 <adu> hppavilion[1]: or '\n'.join(sys.argv[1:])
07:31:38 <adu> in Python
07:35:13 <zzo38> In JavaScript it would be process.argv.slice(1).join("\n") although note that the name of the program is argv[1] (and argv[0] is the name of the interpreter) so it isn't quite the same way necessarily

08:22:36 <hppavilion[1]> myname: What if said language is your first language?
08:22:48 <hppavilion[1]> myname: And you already thought in its mindset?
08:23:15 <izabera> https://github.com/izabera/pathhack if anyone wants to try this, it lets you handle relative paths in other directories than .

08:23:55 <izabera> (it's mostly a test, maybe i'll rewrite it with fuse)

08:24:31 * hppavilion[1] may have just invented Category Theory
08:24:56 <myname> or ZFC
08:25:28 <hppavilion[1]> myname: No, it axiomizes things completely unrelated to sets (though you can, of course, construct them using sets)
08:27:00 <zzo38> Category theory has many definitions made including thin category, discrete category, functors, monads, comonads, initial/final object, etc. Also a category can add/multiply/exponent another category, and in this way the finite discrete categories are the natural numbers of these add/multiply/exponent.
08:27:30 <hppavilion[1]> zzo38: Is there category successor?
08:27:51 <zzo38> You could add one, I suppose
08:28:02 <hppavilion[1]> zzo38: NOT GOOD ENOUGH
08:28:13 <hppavilion[1]> zzo38: You must go peano on its ass or it isn't real arithmetic
08:28:14 <hppavilion[1]> xD
08:28:57 <zzo38> But you could add one to any category it does not have to be a discrete category.
08:29:32 <zzo38> (A discrete category is a category with no morphisms other than identity morphisms.)
08:30:28 <zzo38> (By "add one" I mean you add the discrete category with one object.)
08:31:18 <hppavilion[1]> zzo38: Ah
08:31:42 <hppavilion[1]> zzo38: Is there category predecessor though?
08:31:53 <hppavilion[1]> Predecessor is really what this's about
08:32:38 <zzo38> As far as I can tell, there cannot always be.

15:27:39 <nortti> I got an esolang idea, infinitely parallel DFA. the DFA's output is (synchronously) transmitted to the next machine in chain, and its input is similarily hooked to one previous to it
15:28:04 <nortti> in the beginning, a starting symbol is fed into the machine in the head of the chain
15:32:49 <nortti> I believe it is turing complete, as you can have a system thusly, simulating cyclic tag system: you have symbols S (start symbol), 0, 1, ;, D0, D1. the machine's initial state responds to D0 (in which case it sets its internal state to 0 and moves to "main loop"), D1 (same as internal D0, except internal state 1), and S (at first send out the starting data using D0 and D1, then start sending out the progr
15:32:55 <nortti> am, repeatedly, encoded in 0, 1, ;)
15:35:10 <nortti> in the main loop, the DFA reacts to 0, 1, ;, D0, D1. if it gets 0 or 1 and its internal state is 1, it then send forwards either a D0 or D1, otherwise don't transmit anything. if it gets ;, it goes into "death loop", where it will merely repeat the symbol it receives. for D0 and D1, it will just repeat the symbol onwards
15:35:24 <b_jonas> nortti: so you basically want a cellular automaton with a particluar neighborhood rule?
15:35:38 <b_jonas> nortti: those are known to be enough to be turing-complete, with the right DFA ruleset.
15:35:46 <b_jonas> with quite small ones too
15:35:46 <nortti> ah, ok
15:36:11 <nortti> didn't realise it mapped into cellular automata, but now thinking makes sense

18:54:13 <hppavilion[1]> It's easiest to prove things if you assume all axioms
18:54:38 <coppro> hppavilion[1]: I can prove just as many things with only one axiom!
18:54:51 <hppavilion[1]> coppro: Which one?
18:55:00 <coppro> for all statements S, S is true.
18:57:04 <hppavilion[1]> coppro: Oh
19:00:05 <zzo38> Such axiom is inconsistent though and does not result in a meaningful system.
19:00:34 <coppro> zzo38: right
19:00:47 <coppro> so is "all axioms" since that would necessarily include the negation of any axiom assumed
19:02:15 <quintopia> coppro: you don't need a universal quantifier if you use the axiom P and not P (for whichever P you feel like using)
19:02:56 <quintopia> its a waste of quantifiers

19:46:45 <b_jonas> I see
19:46:54 <b_jonas> so everything goes under misc*
19:46:55 <b_jonas> ok
19:48:26 -!- hppavilion[1] has joined.
19:49:17 <zzo38> Well, not quite everything, occasionally files are added into other directories if they really fit there, or new directories are created for use of other archives, but my own new files tend to go under miscellaneous regardless of what they are about. The file music/xm-form.txt is one file that contains my own text as well as that from elsewhere, since that file contained some mistakes. I have marked what my changes are.
19:49:43 <b_jonas> sure, it's just most files right now
19:50:35 <zzo38> Yes.
19:54:37 <zzo38> Now what is your opinion of this UTCE document?
19:55:39 <b_jonas> zzo38: I mostly agree with whoever said above that it's better to have a flat homogenous namespace of characters, and that namespace these days tend to be unicode. There might be characters missing, but they can be added.
19:56:02 <b_jonas> I do understand that a terminal encoding or font encoding needs different characters than a text encoding,
19:56:07 <b_jonas> and they certainly have to be distinguished,
19:56:15 <b_jonas> but at least unicode provides a good base for all of these.
19:56:45 <b_jonas> For fonts, you often need more than one glyphs for one character, or combinations of characters, so it gets all ugly and complicated, but still.
19:56:57 <b_jonas> Some of that can come up even with terminals.
19:57:53 <zzo38> Terminals should avoid use of such things. UTCE deliberately omits such things as Arabic and Hebrew
19:57:57 <b_jonas> Although admittedly _part_ of the multiplication of glyphs required per character would have better been avoided when unicode was made,
19:58:15 <b_jonas> and is just a historical consequence of unifying the CJK scripts or of unifying the Russian with the Serbian scripts,
19:58:30 -!- Sprocklem has quit (Ping timeout: 276 seconds).
19:58:41 <b_jonas> but it's a bit too later for that, and even if you did all those historical things right, you'd sometimes need multiple glyphs per character in a font.
19:59:17 <b_jonas> zzo38: Oh sure, arabic, hebrew, or old hungarian runes need so much ligature stuff that you just can't display them on a terminal grid, I think.
19:59:42 <b_jonas> They just don't work in monospaced.
20:00:19 <zzo38> That is correct.
20:00:37 <b_jonas> But I don't know too much about arabic or hebrew, so don't trust what I say about those.\
20:00:50 <b_jonas> I display mostly latin script stuff in terminals.
20:01:06 <b_jonas> (And even latin script has some complications of course.)
20:01:26 <b_jonas> Language stuff is never easy.
20:01:30 <zzo38> I don't know much about Aratic and Hebrew, although they are right-to-left, which is also deliberately avoided by UTCE.
20:03:01 <zzo38> However, UTCE is not intended to be used for typography; it is for terminal encoding. Even for typography, all properties should be defined in the font metrics instead of in the character set anyways.
20:03:03 <b_jonas> The Commodore 64 characters are an interesting case. That rom supports two or three font encodings, and I think \oren\ found that there are six characters all together supported by the commodore that don't seem to have nice unicode equivalents.
20:03:13 -!- J_Arcane has quit (Ping timeout: 268 seconds).
20:03:20 <b_jonas> But those should be added to unicode eventually if they are used.
20:03:41 <zzo38> It is OK that some characters are not available in Unicode.
20:03:51 <zzo38> UTCE is separate from Unicode.
20:04:06 <b_jonas> Sure, because there are tons of characters in general. And there's always more of them.
20:07:10 <zzo38> A terminal emulator can support multiple character encodings anyways, although sometimes different fonts may be needed in each case. I recommend that the additional character encodings to support are only the subset of ISO 2022 that is implemented in DEC terminals.
20:08:46 <zzo38> Also, it is not only some Commodore 64 characters which have no Unicode equivalent, this is also the case with some Apple MouseText, Texas Instruments, and Infocom character graphics.
20:09:01 <zzo38> (As well as a small number of DEC character graphics)
20:09:34 <b_jonas> I have no idea what Apple MouseText is
20:10:08 <b_jonas> Texas Instruments… um, is that the programmable calculators? I don't really know what kind of single-cell characters they have these days.
20:10:27 <b_jonas> Infocom... I don't know that either
20:10:36 <zzo38> Yes, I do mean the programmable calculators. Many of the characters it has are in Unicode, but a few aren't.
20:11:02 <b_jonas> As for the DEC graphics characters, I believe all of them are in unicode now. There's only about 70 or something of them total anyway, and most of them were already in unicode for other reasons.
20:11:23 <zzo38> I think the pieces of the large Sigma aren't?
20:13:30 <b_jonas> hmm, is there a reference for that set of characters somewhere?
20:16:02 <zzo38> http://www.vt100.net/charsets/technical.html
20:17:07 <zzo38> (There is also the VT100 graphics set, which is a separate set, already included in both Unicode and UTCE.)
20:17:21 <zzo38> The Technical set is mostly in Unicode and fully in UTCE.
20:17:42 <zzo38> As you can see, the pieces of the large Sigma have no Unicode equivalents.
20:17:54 <b_jonas> ah
20:18:39 <b_jonas> yes, those might not have a unicode equivalent. I don't know.
20:22:16 <zzo38> Notice there are some duplicates; UTCE is meant not to have duplicates, so the encodings aren't exactly the same as the originals. (A font for the X window system will likely contain duplicates anyways for compatibility purposes, as described in the document I wrote.)
20:22:58 <b_jonas> zzo38: sure, it will have duplicates between those different character sets
20:23:32 <b_jonas> there's quite some overlap between the DEC technical set and the 437 for example
20:24:26 -!- J_Arcane has joined.
20:26:25 <zzo38> Yes I know that, and when converting either of those same characters from either DEC or PC set into UTCE, they convert to the same UTCE code.

21:11:37 <b_jonas> indeed, lifthrasiir's is 8 wide
21:13:12 <b_jonas> lifthrasiir: what's your progress with it by the way? I've seen you've added some more Latin script characters, but you haven't added the easy but common characters like " " (thin space) yet. I know you said you didn't want to add them yet, but maybe that's changed since.
21:13:38 <Taneb> b_jonas, I could use yours, I guess

22:40:24 <shachaf> i wish cmccann was still around so i could ask him about it
22:40:44 <Taneb> oerjan, it's my clipboard that I'm worried about
22:40:48 <shachaf> "-- Given "A ⅋ B" either A or B is true, but you get to "decide" which is true by providing a counterexample for the other, where the counterexample may be (and often is) used in the computation that produces the final result. It's probably not as confusing as it sounds. Possibly."

23:01:45 <oerjan> shachaf: i am guessing there's nothing enforcing that those definitions actually use each parameter once...
23:02:39 <oerjan> so, in a sense it's classical logic (by rampant double negation) with programmer discipline.

23:04:41 <Taneb> Did you know it takes a long time for a JavaScript emulator to run a 10000 line brainfuck program

23:34:04 <boily> Québécois income tax are fun!
23:35:22 <oerjan> tax is not a plural noun, boily
23:39:18 <boily> pluralses are complicated :P
23:39:21 <int-e> so you don't get a choice about taxes?
23:42:22 <boily> taxes aren't really known to be about choice.

23:49:25 <shachaf> boily: whoa whoa whoa, canadian tax rates are p. high
23:50:10 <shachaf> or maybe us tax rates are low
23:50:17 <shachaf> or actually maybe they're more similar than i thought
23:52:57 <boily> we pay provincial and federal taxes, with different forms! about half my pay disappears into our Great Government.
