00:00:08 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: A JS-ic interpreter for BASIC?
00:00:16 <rdococ> idk how it worked
00:00:18 <fizzie> hppavilion[1]: They're "markov sequences" all right, though it's not quite the most common implementation, where you have a bunch of text and then jump around; instead, it's just generating word by word from a variable-length n-gram model trained with https://github.com/vsiivola/variKN and stored in a I-think-it's-nifty-but-for-some-reason-haven't-much-seen-it-around data structure that I call ...
00:00:19 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: I've been working to make a browser
00:00:22 <rdococ> but it was called Quite Basic
00:00:24 <fizzie> ... a reverse-context tree for lack of a better name.
00:00:26 <fizzie> It's like a word trie except so that if your model has, say, information about the contexts "baz bar foo", "quux bar foo" and "zuul foo", the trie has the form (foo (bar (baz [..]) (quux [..])) (zuul [...])).
00:00:29 <int-e> hppavilion[1]: this is of course inspired by "halt and catch fire", https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Halt_and_Catch_Fire
00:00:30 <fizzie> The idea being that it's easy to synthesize from -- you just descend the tree while reading backwards from the end of the text you've generated so far, and once you no longer find a leaf for the "next" (previous) word, you've arrived at the longest prefix in the variKN model, and can read its list of frequencies for following words.
00:00:35 <fizzie> (For extra credit, also account for backoff weights by having a probability for going back up one level.)
00:01:07 <hppavilion[1]> int-e: Ah, yes
00:01:39 <rdococ> If I had to choose a few esoteric assembly instructions, they would be, um
00:01:48 <fizzie> For some reason most things dealing with n-gram models I've seen have tended to put things in a trie, yes, but the "right way around". Which I guess is just fine for a fixed-length model, but much less convenient for a variable-length one.
00:01:53 <rdococ> idk
00:02:10 <rdococ> I'm in the mood to talk about numbers right now
00:02:21 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: Have you heard of the number @?
00:02:32 <rdococ> the number what?
00:02:41 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: The number @
00:02:44 <rdococ> nope
00:02:44 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: |@|=-1
00:02:49 <rdococ> ...
00:02:51 <rdococ> interesting
00:02:53 <hppavilion[1]> |n@|=-n
00:02:56 <rdococ> wow
00:03:13 <fizzie> And I had a lot of fun writing the Funge code. It's a language that's generally much easier to write than read.

00:03:53 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: Go on
00:03:57 <zgrep> hppavilion[1]: Something that randomly chooses a register, and start executing the instruction at the specified address. An instruction that moves memory from a specified location to a random location somewhere else. An instruction that reads the specified memory address, and multiplies it by a random prime number. Other useless things.

00:04:11 <rdococ> @ * @ = 1?
00:04:14 <rdococ> or different
00:04:14 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: Undefined, as of yet
00:04:22 <rdococ> hmm
00:04:23 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: No, but j^2 = 1
00:04:25 <hppavilion[1]> But j != 1
00:04:30 <rdococ> crazy
00:04:31 <hppavilion[1]> And k^2 = 0
00:04:35 <hppavilion[1]> But k != 0
00:04:42 <zgrep> |@*@| = 1?
00:04:43 <hppavilion[1]> That's the 2D real algebras
00:04:44 <rdococ> we can take any condition and turn it into a number...
00:04:47 <hppavilion[1]> zgrep: Probably not
00:04:50 <hppavilion[1]> zgrep: Ask Sgeo__
00:04:59 <zgrep> hppavilion[1]: Why not?
00:05:10 <rdococ> sqrt(@)?
00:05:12 <hppavilion[1]> zgrep: Because @ isn't based on squaring, it's based on absing
00:05:18 <rdococ> |-@|?
00:05:22 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: 1
00:05:32 <rdococ> crazy
00:05:33 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: |-@|=1
00:05:45 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: Not that crazy; I already said |n@| = -n
00:05:46 <rdococ> 3@ / 2@ = ???
00:05:49 <rdococ> 3/2?
00:05:54 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: Yes, definitely
00:05:57 <rdococ> true
00:05:59 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: Sgeo__ invented @
00:06:05 <rdococ> now I want to invent one
00:06:09 <shachaf> `? @
00:06:19 <HackEgo> ​@ is an OS made out of only the finest vapour.
00:06:19 <shachaf> p. sure it wasn't Sgeo__ who invented @
00:06:19 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: Just don't make it absy, make it something new
00:06:21 <rdococ> $
00:06:28 <rdococ> $ * 2 = 0.5
00:06:32 <rdococ> $ * x = 1/x
00:06:34 <zgrep> `misle/rn @/|@| = -1
00:06:43 <HackEgo> Was lied to about «@»
00:06:45 <rdococ> but that means $ = 1...
00:06:48 <rdococ> huh
00:06:53 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: That's actually... hm...
00:07:01 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: I don't see how that behaves like numbers
00:07:18 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: It has to behave reasonably like a number, but not quite, or else it's no fun
00:07:27 <rdococ> x$ = x/$ but $ =/= 1
00:07:37 <rdococ> true
00:07:44 <rdococ> what other numbers...
00:07:50 <rdococ> I mean functions
00:07:51 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: @ is numeric, as are i, j, and k
00:08:03 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: You can do the reverse of @'s creation process to
00:08:04 <hppavilion[1]> o

00:08:14 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: $=-i@
00:08:20 <rdococ> hmm
00:08:44 <hppavilion[1]> zgrep: Because |n*@| = -n, -@ = -1*a, and -(-1) = 1
00:08:52 <zgrep> Oh, wow. Heh.
00:08:59 <rdococ> hmmm
00:09:07 <rdococ> $ = cube root (-1)

00:09:35 <rdococ> hmm
00:09:48 <boily> explore quaternions.
00:09:50 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: @ was made by taking an unsatisfiable expression and making a new number that satisfies it. The reverse is taking an expression with no solution and making a solution
00:10:02 <zgrep> |@*@| = -@?
00:10:06 <rdococ> should I do the inverse/
00:10:08 <rdococ> ?*
00:10:08 <lambdabot> Maybe you meant: v @ ? .
00:10:16 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: η is the "Notta Constant"
00:10:16 <rdococ> or the one you did?
00:10:22 <rdococ> what's the notta constant?
00:10:28 <hppavilion[1]> zgrep: No, unless you have a reason
00:10:38 <rdococ> hmm
00:10:40 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: xη = x/0
00:10:51 <rdococ> so basically infinity
00:10:59 <rdococ> hmm
00:11:02 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: No, not infinity
00:11:03 <zgrep> hppavilion[1]: |n*@| = -n, so |@*@| = -@... What'd I do wrong? :P
00:11:08 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: It's a new plane
00:11:13 <hppavilion[1]> zgrep: Ah, good point
00:11:14 <rdococ> a new plane? oh yeah
00:11:19 <hppavilion[1]> zgrep: NOW you're onto something
00:11:22 <hppavilion[1]> :)
00:11:26 <rdococ> hmmm
00:11:45 <rdococ> so I will make up an unsatisfiable expression
00:11:46 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: You can also invent completely baffling things that look like numbers at first, but aren't quite
00:11:51 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: Like the trigns
00:11:54 <rdococ> trigns?
00:11:58 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: Make sure the expression is fairly simple
00:12:18 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: It's like the bigns, AKA the reals. I'll leave you to extrapolate.
00:12:34 <rdococ> so it's a third sign?
00:12:43 <rdococ> plus, negative and trign?
00:12:47 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: Yes, or more accurately, 2 new signs that replace -
00:12:53 <rdococ> oh, interesting
00:12:57 <rdococ> what are those signs called?
00:13:02 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: $ ~ and &
00:13:10 <hppavilion[1]> And they have rules that I forgot
00:13:14 <rdococ> hmm
00:13:15 <rdococ> okay
00:13:22 <rdococ> interesting
00:13:41 <zgrep> hppavilion[1]: |n|^2 ≠ |n^2|, right?
00:13:45 <rdococ> 0^x = 1
00:13:46 -!- yorick has joined.
00:13:55 <rdococ> my new number would be %, and 0^% = 1
00:13:57 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: Here's one for you. 0/nρ = n
00:14:00 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: Oh, that works too
00:14:03 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: Look into that
00:14:05 <zgrep> rdococ: Isn't that 0?
00:14:09 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: What's the general case
00:14:13 <hppavilion[1]> zgrep: No, that's undefined
00:14:17 <rdococ> hppa: isn't that another infinity?
00:14:23 <rdococ> the p thing
00:14:28 <rdococ> wait
00:14:39 <rdococ> hmm
00:14:41 <zgrep> hppavilion[1]: Oh, heh. Good point.
00:14:44 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: Though I have a nagging feeling that it's related to η
00:14:57 <hppavilion[1]> zgrep: Yep.
00:15:01 <rdococ> 0^% = 1, so
00:15:09 <rdococ> x^y% = ??
00:15:16 <hppavilion[1]> zgrep: And |n|^2 usually is equal to |n^2|
00:15:31 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: Obviously, 0^%n = n
00:15:39 <rdococ> okay
00:15:42 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: You should probably give it a less mathematical name
00:15:46 <hppavilion[1]> Like "r"
00:15:50 <rdococ> lol r
00:15:56 <hppavilion[1]> Because @ works, but % is too mathy already
00:16:00 <rdococ> 0^rx = ??

00:16:05 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: x
00:16:08 <rdococ> I was originally going for $ but way too mathy
00:16:10 <zgrep> |-n@| = -|n@|
00:16:16 <rdococ> I'll use r
00:16:27 <rdococ> x^ry = ?
00:16:29 <hppavilion[1]> zgrep: I believe so. Let me chack the algebra
00:16:50 <zgrep> hppavilion[1]: |n^2| ≠ |n|^2 if you've got an @ somewhere in there.
00:17:19 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: The simplest solution is x^ry = y(x+1) = xy+y, but that's a bit strange
00:17:27 <hppavilion[1]> zgrep: excellent
00:17:37 -!- tromp has joined.
00:17:44 <rdococ> how'd you get that solution?
00:17:50 <rdococ> oh
00:17:52 <rdococ> I get it
00:18:01 <zgrep> |@^2| = |@*@| = -@, but |@|^2 = 1. So |n^2| ≠ |n|^2, right?
00:18:10 <rdococ> you moved the y down like I moved the x down when I was doing 0^rx
00:18:27 <rdococ> it's interesting though
00:18:43 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: It's not very good (too functional, not numbery enough), but it's the best I can think of
00:18:56 <rdococ> hmm
00:19:00 <hppavilion[1]> zgrep: Apparently, yes! Good job!
00:19:01 <rdococ> let's think of a different simpler one then
00:19:04 <rdococ> what about
00:20:31 <zgrep> In fact, |ab| ≠ |a|*|b| when @'s involved.
00:20:40 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: x : x≠x
00:20:48 <rdococ> weird idea
00:20:59 <rdococ> does x<x-1 then?
00:21:10 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: Maybe, who knows?
00:21:21 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: I guess we shouldn't use ≠, we should use !<=
00:21:37 <rdococ> ԑ
00:21:45 <rdococ> ԑ =/= ԑ

00:22:58 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: Oh! My last name has that letter!
00:23:01 <hppavilion[1]> Kind of!
00:23:09 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: Wait, it's a sideways version
00:23:12 <rdococ> but flipped horizontally
00:23:40 <rdococ> does ξ show up?
00:23:46 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: Yes
00:23:54 <rdococ> so ξ > ξ
00:24:07 <rdococ> xξ > xξ?
00:24:19 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: Obviously
00:24:26 <rdococ> what about xξ and yξ for different x and y?
00:25:02 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: How does that normally work again?
00:25:17 <rdococ> well, 3 > 2 and 2 < 3, and 3 = 3
00:25:29 <rdococ> does ξ = ξ + x for any particular x?
00:26:08 <rdococ> ξ > ξ, and 3ξ = 4ξ?
00:26:13 <rdococ> or 3ξ > 4ξ?
00:26:46 <zgrep> What is ξ, in this case?
00:26:55 <rdococ> ξ > ξ
00:27:05 <zgrep> Ahah. So then ξ < ξ as well.
00:27:19 <rdococ> nope, that rule was broken
00:27:24 <zgrep> How?
00:27:29 <rdococ> hppa's idea
00:27:44 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: Don't blame me!
00:27:58 <rdococ> so does x < ξ for any x?
00:28:13 <zgrep> But if ξ > ξ... why isn't ξ < ξ?
00:28:21 <rdococ> ask hppa
00:28:26 <zgrep> hppavilion[1]: This is me asking you.
00:28:27 <rdococ> my original idea was just ξ =/= ξ

02:06:25 <myname> solve for k = @
02:06:29 <rdococ> So we want to know |@ + x|.
02:06:35 <zgrep> Hm. Let's try.
02:06:38 <rdococ> Let's divide both sides by @. |(1 + x/@)@|
02:06:39 <myname> ah
02:06:45 <rdococ> Apply the rule. -(1 + x/@)
02:06:57 <rdococ> Simplify. -1 - x/@ Assuming my knowledge of parentheses are correct.
02:07:00 <zgrep> -1-1 = -2 :D
02:07:15 <zgrep> It works, of coures. :)
02:07:17 <zgrep> s/res/rse/
02:07:22 <rdococ> Yay
02:07:24 <zgrep> Or, wait... does it?
02:07:30 <zgrep> Yeah, probably.
02:07:33 <zgrep> Yep, it works.
02:08:07 <myname> looks reasonable
02:08:24 <myname> i am not sure if that somehow breaks my contradiction above
02:08:28 <rdococ> I've known that a + b = (1 + b/a)a for ages now.
02:08:30 <zgrep> `misle/rn @/|n@| = -n; |@+k| = -(@+k)/@
02:08:35 <HackEgo> Was lied to about «@»
02:09:07 <zgrep> myname: Hm, which contradiction?
02:09:11 <rdococ> a + b = (a/a + b/a)a = (1 + b/a)a
02:09:22 <rdococ> I dunno if it applies to @, but I don't see why otherwise.
02:09:43 <myname> |x| = |-x| -> |k + @| = |k - 2 - @| -> @ = -2 - @ -> 2@ = -2 -> @ = -1
02:09:47 <myname> that one
02:09:54 <zgrep> Why does |k + @| = |k - 2 - @|?
02:09:59 <zgrep> Or are we assuming that?
02:10:32 <myname> because |k + @| = |-(k + 2) + @|
02:10:43 <zgrep> Err... why?
02:11:05 <rdococ> |5 + @| = |-7 + @|... nope, does not make sense, unless that's why it's contradictory
02:12:03 <rdococ> |5 + @| = -1 - 5/@, meanwhile |-7 + @| = -1 + 7/@. One's less than -1, and the other's more. That's assuming @ > 0.
02:12:09 <zgrep> `tomfoolery @
02:12:10 <HackEgo> ​|n@| = -n; |@+k| = -(@+k)/@
02:12:12 <myname> because |k + @| = -(n + 1) for k = n@ and |-(k+2) + @| = -(k+2) + 1
02:12:25 <zgrep> k = -n
02:12:26 -!- Lyka has left.
02:12:36 <zgrep> Err, no, I'm wrong, sorry.
02:13:05 <myname> |5@ + @| = |-7@ + @|
02:13:11 <zgrep> So the assumption is that k = n@..., then |k + @| = |n@ + @| = |(n+1)@| = -n-1
02:13:26 <myname> wait, no
02:13:50 <rdococ> so wait, |k + @| = -(k/@ + 1), right? that follows what I got, then |-(k+2)+@| = -(k+2) + 1...wait, what?
02:13:54 <zgrep> 6 ≠ -6 :P
02:14:17 <zgrep> |5@ + @| ≠ |-7@ + @| because |a@| ≠ |a||@|

02:27:53 -!- mihow has quit (Quit: mihow).
02:27:56 <myname> for that we have to know what |@^k| is

02:46:28 <zgrep> k^@ = -@|k^@|
02:47:17 <myname> the @^0 is bad
02:47:33 <myname> is there any way tp make it be 1?
02:48:27 <zgrep> |ab@| = a|b@|, right?
02:48:42 <myname> i guess
02:50:06 <zgrep> myname: I guess that |@^0| simply isn't 1...
02:51:05 <zgrep> myname: It works out: |@^1| = -(@^0), so @^0 = -|@^1| = -|@| = 1
02:51:25 <myname> what version?
02:51:33 <zgrep> |@^q| = -(@^(q-1)), q = 1
02:52:16 <myname> ah
02:53:32 <myname> but i donjt like how |@^0| != |1|
02:53:36 <myname> but that is fine
02:53:42 <zgrep> Let's assume that it is...
02:53:43 <zgrep> But 1 = |1|... and -(@^(-1)) = |@^0|... so -1 = @^(-1)...
02:53:49 <myname> |0^0| isn't 1 either
02:54:26 <zgrep> So 1/@ = -1?
02:54:31 <zgrep> That doesn't work, does it?
02:55:15 <zgrep> No, it doesn't.
02:55:22 <zgrep> Because @ ≠ -1, right...
02:55:36 <zgrep> Where did I mess u.
02:55:37 <zgrep> s/u/up/
02:55:49 <myname> @^0 simply isn't 1
02:55:50 <lambdabot> Maybe you meant: wn v rc pl id do bf @ ? .
02:56:12 <zgrep> myname: No, @^0 seems to be 1... just |@^0| doesn't seem to be 1... :(
02:56:23 <zgrep> ...unless @^0 isn't 1, because @^1 ≠ 1...
02:56:24 <myname> fine, too
02:56:37 <zgrep> How's that fine, though... |1| ≠ 1, then?
02:56:55 <myname> right
02:57:05 <myname> so @^0 must not be 1
02:57:31 <zgrep> `tomfoolery
02:57:32 <zgrep> `tomfoolery @
02:57:37 <myname> but that may imply @^1 is not @

02:57:59 <zgrep> |@^1| = -(@^(-2))...
02:59:05 <myname> well, but as you said, |@^1| = -(@^0)
02:59:32 <myname> if @^1 were @, that would mean @^0 is 1
02:59:44 -!- tromp has joined.
03:00:22 <myname> so we either have to define |@^x| somehow else or we have to say that @^0 is not 1 and @^1 is not @
03:00:28 <zgrep> Whoops,
03:00:29 <zgrep> s/,/./
03:00:32 <myname> i don't like the second part, though
03:00:58 <zgrep> Yeah...
03:01:21 <myname> so the exponential rule is wrong
03:01:39 <zgrep> I mean, it works out that @^0 = 1 and @^1 = 1, they work together... but they end up giving @ a wrong value...
03:02:00 <zgrep> I guess...
03:02:02 <myname> we may do something like ^(sqrt(x)) to work around these sneaky 0 and 1 edge cases
03:04:30 <zgrep> a^b = a*a*a... b times, right? That's the definition we're going with?
03:04:34 <zgrep> Or something else.
03:04:36 <myname> wait, how did your 1/@ worked above
03:05:06 <myname> why is -1 = @^(-1)
03:05:18 <zgrep> I'm not sure what I did above... I've lost my train(s) of thought.
03:05:45 <zgrep> https://upload.wikimedia.org/math/7/f/8/7f80d3b6fbe1d4e35eca5022242872bf.png <-- that's the definition we're going with, right?
03:06:01 <myname> -1 = |@| = |@^1| = -(@^0)
03:06:07 <myname> yeah
03:06:16 <zgrep> Indeed...
03:07:26 <myname> i do think you made an error above but i am quite unsure
03:07:38 <zgrep> I probably made a few errors above.
03:07:42 <zgrep> |@^k| = @^(k-1) * |@|, right?
03:08:10 <zgrep> Simply because of the fact that |a@| = a|@|
03:08:34 <zgrep> So |@^k| = -(@^(k-1))
03:08:52 <zgrep> If @^0 = 1, then 1 = |@^0| = -(@^(-1))...
03:09:12 <rdococ> aha!
03:09:34 <rdococ> 1 = -(1/@)... that means 1/@ = -1...???
03:10:18 <rdococ> that's... weird - I heard you talking about it above but never stopped to read
03:10:48 <myname> ah
03:10:50 <zgrep> If @^1 = @, then -1 = |@^1| = -(@^0), then 1 = @^0...
03:11:10 <zgrep> -1 = (1/@)...
03:11:18 <rdococ> @^0 = 1, @^-1 = -1, and @^1 = @.
03:11:18 <lambdabot> Maybe you meant: wn v rc pl id do bf @ ? .
03:11:43 <rdococ> I guess 1/-1 has two solutions now
03:12:03 <myname> @ and -1?
03:12:08 <myname> may work out
03:12:21 <zgrep> So how did I show that @ is a number...
03:12:35 <myname> but does this imply it for any division?
03:12:51 <myname> like, is 1/-2 equal to some @ thing?
03:13:19 <zgrep> |@^(-2)| = -(@^(-3))...
03:13:32 <rdococ> 1/-2 = -1/2 or (1/2)@
03:13:35 <rdococ> I would say
03:13:47 <zgrep> |@^-1| = |-1| = 1... so -(@^(-2)) = 1?
03:14:03 <myname> that would make -1 may or may not be @
03:14:24 <zgrep> (@*@) = -1
03:14:25 <zgrep> ?
03:14:25 <rdococ> @^-2 = -1?
03:14:25 <lambdabot> Unknown command, try @list
03:14:38 <rdococ> |@*@| = 1?!?!?!?!
03:14:44 <myname> no
03:14:51 <myname> |@@| = -@
03:15:06 <rdococ> but zgrep said
03:15:24 <zgrep> If @^-2 = -1, then -1*(@^2) = 1, then @^2 = -1... D:
03:15:48 <rdococ> ...then that means sqrt(-1) = @ and @ = i...
03:15:58 <rdococ> but that's ludicrous
03:16:02 <zgrep> |i| = 1, though.
03:16:05 <zgrep> @ is ludicrous.
03:16:23 <rdococ> indeed, bordering on ridiculous
03:16:31 <rdococ> but interesting enough to keep around
03:16:34 <zgrep> Something weird is going on here with powers... :(
03:17:03 <rdococ> @^-1 is -1, right?
03:17:03 <lambdabot> Unknown command, try @list
03:17:07 <myname> but that would mean |i| = -1
03:17:27 <myname> rdococ: ot depends on how you calculate
03:17:31 <myname> but yeah
03:17:58 <rdococ> if we assume that @^-1 = -1, then (@^-1)^-1 = -1 too, so @^-2 = -1...
03:18:03 <rdococ> it acts a lot like -1
03:18:05 -!- earendel has joined.
03:18:18 <rdococ> if my maths is right
03:18:38 <zgrep> I'm going to take a break from @ for now.
03:18:56 <rdococ> hmm
03:19:24 <rdococ> I think the problem lies in the absolute value function of x@
03:19:25 <zgrep> What if we just say that |n@| = n|@| instead of -1...
03:19:37 <zgrep> Err, instead of -n.
03:19:49 <rdococ> since f(x) = |x@| doesn't swap slopes at the origin
03:20:18 <rdococ> I mean, |x@| = -x, but |x| = x if x >= 0, and -x otherwise
03:20:23 <rdococ> no such conditional in the @
03:20:24 <myname> rdococ: i don't get ypur (@^-1)^-1 = -1
03:20:33 <zgrep> Something makes me think this is simply a problem of choosing absolute value, something related to distances...
03:20:37 <rdococ> @^-1 = -1
03:20:37 <lambdabot> Unknown command, try @list
03:20:48 <rdococ> -1^-1 = 1/-1 = -1
03:20:52 <rdococ> or @
03:21:01 <rdococ> if we say @^-2 = @
03:21:10 <rdococ> then we complicate things a lot
03:21:19 <myname> ah, i see
03:22:19 <myname> we may need to start from stratch
03:22:28 <rdococ> I'm going to make a small adjustment to @'s behaviour, and call the new one ©.
03:22:35 <earendel> |x|-|x| = -2x?
03:22:50 <rdococ> |x©| = -|x|

03:23:23 <zgrep> rdococ: Hm.
03:23:28 <rdococ> if we try © instead of @, do you think it will turn out with less contradictions?

03:25:44 <myname> that might work

03:27:01 <myname> we might as well call it @ and remove out old draft
03:27:13 <rdococ> nah, incase © runs into problems too
03:27:20 <zgrep> -|((©+n)/©)| = -|1 + n/©|... I don't see how this is still the same as @?

03:28:00 <rdococ> hmm
03:28:07 <myname> not the same, but we basically made all the rules up from a wrong first definition
03:28:25 <myname> we might as well change that definition and start over still calling it @
03:29:07 <zgrep> I don't see how to unwrap it from the absolute value, though, which could be what makes it work, but still...
03:29:15 <zgrep> ...sort-of sad. :(
03:29:15 <rdococ> |© + k| = |(1 + k/©)/©|. Using the rule where |n©| = -|n|, we get -|1 + k/©|
03:29:21 <myname> or choose some symbol that's on an ordinary keyboard
03:29:42 <rdococ> © looks like @

03:35:20 <rdococ> |©^0| = 1 works though
03:35:24 <rdococ> |©^-1| = -1
03:35:32 <rdococ> |©^-2| = 1
03:35:41 <zgrep> So ©^2 is now 1?
03:35:46 <earendel> what's a software keyboard? like onscreen interface?
03:35:52 <rdococ> yes
03:35:55 <myname> yeah
03:35:57 <earendel> kay.
03:36:04 <myname> pretty normal on smartphones
03:36:06 <rdococ> |©©| = -|©| = 1
03:36:12 * zgrep takes a break from this to eat some cake
03:36:14 <rdococ> it's recursive
03:36:18 <zgrep> But |1| = 1, therefore ©© = 1
03:36:19 <myname> but
03:36:30 <myname> what is |@©|
03:36:31 <rdococ> uh?
03:36:33 <zgrep> Or ©© = -1...
03:36:38 <zgrep> ©© = ±1
03:36:43 <zgrep> There.
03:37:03 <rdococ> |©| = -|©^0| = |©^-1|
03:37:13 <zgrep> myname: :D
03:37:28 <rdococ> |©©| = 1, surprisingly
03:37:32 <zgrep> myname: Obviously -© = 1
03:37:46 <zgrep> If trying to find |@©| you get that. :P
03:37:57 <zgrep> But I think that's because we don't have a working @.
03:38:22 <zgrep> © = 1 or i... depending on the context? :P
03:38:42 * zgrep really goes away now
03:38:43 <rdococ> when did © become i?
03:38:51 <zgrep> If ©© = ±1...
03:38:59 <zgrep> ...I cheated and reversed an absolute value... :P
03:39:05 <rdococ> then |©©| = 1...huh, it is
03:39:20 <rdococ> hey
03:39:23 <rdococ> you can't do that
03:39:29 <zgrep> Why not? :(
03:39:36 <zgrep> The only way to win is to cheat...
03:39:45 <rdococ> 1 = |1| = |-1| = |©©|
03:39:55 <rdococ> so you mean 1 = -1 now?
03:40:14 <rdococ> you can't reverse an absolute value, like you did anyway, whether © exists or not
03:42:01 <rdococ> anyone else?
03:42:06 <rdococ> hppavilion[1]?
03:42:42 <rdococ> we made a modified version of @ called ©, and |x©| = -|x|...hello?
04:00:01 <zgrep> @tell Sgeo__ @ seems to fail with regards to exponents... at least, it doesn't do too well...
04:00:01 <lambdabot> Consider it noted.
04:00:51 -!- bender| has joined.
04:01:35 <Sgeo__> zgrep, what's going on?
04:03:02 <zgrep> Sgeo__: So exponents, as in |@^k|. If we assume that |n@| = -n, and n = (@^k)/@, then |@^k| = -(@^k)/@ = -(@^(k-1))
04:06:10 <zgrep> |@^1| = -(@^0); @^1 = @ (because of https://goo.gl/XMm8lT); So |@| = -1 = -(@^0); so @^0 = 1, so far so good...
04:06:13 <zgrep> But...
04:07:31 <zgrep> |@^0| = |1| = 1 = -(@^(-1)); so (1/@) = -1. Therefore -@ = 1, and @ = -1... :/
04:08:02 <zgrep> Sgeo__: Which it isn't.
04:08:30 <zgrep> Any suggestions?
04:08:46 <zgrep> rdococ: Suggested |n©| = -|n|, which seems to do the trick.
04:08:59 <Sgeo__> Where does |n@| = -n come from? Was that my original definiton, or was it |n@| = -|n|? If i remember my most recent proposed definiton for |a+b@| properly, it would be the second, I think
04:09:57 <zgrep> Sgeo__: I don't know what your original definition was, but I know that I first heard of it as |@| = -1.
04:10:15 <zgrep> Sgeo__: What was your most recent definition?
04:11:13 <Sgeo__> |a+b@| = sqrt(a^2 - b^2) if a^2 - b^2 is positive, i*sqrt(a^2 - b^2) if a^2 - b^2 is negative. Or something like that
04:11:37 <zgrep> Eek. More if statements, atop the absolute value... :(
04:12:39 <zgrep> So theoretically I could have |3+4i+5@+6i@|? :D
04:12:53 <Sgeo__> Not sure if my definition extends to cover that
04:13:10 <zgrep> If a and b can be complex, then yes.
04:13:16 <zgrep> I think.
04:14:12 <zgrep> |a+b@| = |√(a²+b²)| ?
04:14:18 <zgrep> Err. no.
04:14:26 <zgrep> |a+b@| = √(|a²-b²|) ?
04:14:27 <zgrep> That?
04:15:16 <zgrep> `misle/rn @/|a+b@| = √(|a²-b²|)
04:15:20 <HackEgo> Was lied to about «@»
04:15:33 <zgrep> HackEgo is slower than I last recall...
04:17:25 <zgrep> ...either that, or it's my connection.
04:17:42 <rdococ> So |0+1@| = sqrt(|0 - 1|) = 1???
04:18:11 <rdococ> well maybe not???
04:18:40 <zgrep> Hm... or I'm wrong...
04:19:03 <zgrep> i*sqrt(a^2-b^2) = i*sqrt(-1) = i^2 = -1... :/
04:19:42 <zgrep> But i = sqrt(-1) so i*sqrt(a^2-b^2) = sqrt(b^2 - a^2), no?
04:21:48 <zgrep> I guess not.
04:22:06 <rdococ> so @ is a time dimension?
04:22:37 <zgrep> But... I*Sqrt[b] == Sqrt[-b] ???
04:22:48 <rdococ> yes, I think
04:22:54 <zgrep> Why isn't this working, then?
04:23:12 <rdococ> dunno
04:23:22 <zgrep> a = 0; b = 1; I*Sqrt[a^2 - b^2] => -1; Sqrt[b^2 - a^2] => 1; :(
04:23:38 <rdococ> but I love the idea of a complex hyperplane that takes place in 2 dimensions of space and 1 of time
04:24:17 <rdococ> Sgeo__: was that your intention? a time dimension?
04:24:45 <zgrep> Well, that's what a negative result from absolute value ends up being.
04:24:47 <zgrep> I guess.
04:24:54 <zgrep> Though not exactly.
04:25:03 <Sgeo__> My recent definition of |a+b@| was inspired by the time dimension, which I believe could be described with a numvber # such that |#| = i
04:25:21 <rdococ> that makes sense
04:25:49 <zgrep> `misle/rn @/|a+b@| = { √(a²-b²) if a²-b² ≥ 0 ; i√(a²-b²) if a²-b² < 0 }
04:26:08 <HackEgo> Was lied to about «@»
04:26:31 <rdococ> |a + bi + cτ| = √(a² + b² - c²)
04:26:41 <rdococ> three dimensional tau space
04:26:47 <rdococ> tau representing time dimension
04:27:22 <rdococ> |τ| = sqrt(-1) = i, so it fits your definition too
04:27:42 <zgrep> a + bi + cj + dk <-- 3 dimensions + time?
04:27:53 <rdococ> a + bi + cj - dk
04:28:00 <zgrep> I was close.
04:28:18 <zgrep> Neat. :D
04:28:30 <rdococ> the time dimension is negative
04:28:51 <rdococ> distance is a measure of how hard it is to get to somewhere, so more time allowed, the easier it is
04:29:05 <rdococ> cool, right?
04:29:47 <zgrep> Hm.... hmmmmm.... :D
04:29:57 <rdococ> |a + bi + cτ| = √(a² + b² - c²) if √(a² + b² - c²) >= 0, otherwise i√(a² + b² - c²)
04:30:10 <zgrep> Wait... so if I have 4τ, then |4τ| = ???
04:30:17 <zgrep> Ahah.
04:30:24 <zgrep> 4i?
04:30:29 <zgrep> Err... not 4i.
04:30:31 <zgrep> 2i?
04:30:42 <rdococ> |4t| = sqrt(-16) = 4i
04:30:44 <zgrep> Err. No. I can't think.
04:30:47 <zgrep> Yeah, 4i.
04:30:55 <zgrep> But... how is 4i easier than 3i?
04:31:12 <rdococ> i is basically the negatives
04:31:32 <rdococ> because square roots are like that
04:31:33 <zgrep> That's... why?
04:31:37 <zgrep> But... why?
04:31:55 <rdococ> because x*x=-1 doesn't have any real solution
04:32:23 <rdococ> using my adjusted formula, |4t| = i*sqrt(-16) = 4ii = -4
04:32:29 <rdococ> which is easier than -3
04:32:43 <zgrep> But... why's it adjusted that way?
04:32:56 <zgrep> I guess you could say it just, err, is that way... but...
04:33:06 <zgrep> Oh, there. I see.
04:33:11 <zgrep> I didn't finish reading the line.
04:33:44 <rdococ> but mine is basically the same as Sgeo__'s @
04:34:05 <rdococ> except that I think tau would be a better symbol to fit it than @
04:34:17 <zgrep> Huh. Is this tau known by any other, more widely accepted names?
04:34:23 <zgrep> tau / @ / whatever.
04:34:29 <rdococ> sometimes t
04:34:53 <zgrep> I meant more as in, is there a wikipedia page with a snippet about it? Or any other links?
04:35:11 <rdococ> nah, idk if anyone thought of it yet
04:36:43 <zgrep> This is pretty neat.
04:37:22 <rdococ> well, I did have a similar idea
04:37:38 <rdococ> a number y where e^yx = sinh(x) + ycosh(x)
04:37:50 <rdococ> tau might fit it
04:38:28 <rdococ> so I guess |@| = -1 after all, since it's time and all
04:39:57 <Sgeo__> I should read these logs at some point
04:40:13 <Sgeo__> I'm only half paying attention, and it involves stuff I'm involved with
04:40:31 <rdococ> we should popularise this @ or tau idea
04:40:40 <rdococ> it would be useful
04:40:50 <zgrep> tau, or @?
04:40:53 <rdococ> both
04:40:56 <rdococ> they're the same
04:40:58 <zgrep> tau.
04:41:03 <zgrep> Damn, autocorrect.
04:41:03 <rdococ> just different names
04:41:05 <zgrep> atau.
04:41:06 <zgrep> :P
04:41:15 <zgrep> t@u? :P
04:41:20 <rdococ> lol
04:42:14 <Sgeo__> I'm confused by rdococ's definition... sqrt is always (normally) >= 0 unless comparison is undefined
04:42:37 <Sgeo__> Should it be read as just a^2 + b^2 - c^2 in the conditional?
04:42:41 <rdococ> |a + bi + cτ| = √(a² + b² - c²) if a² + b² - c² >= 0, otherwise i√(a² + b² - c²)
04:42:43 <rdococ> yes
04:42:44 <rdococ> you're right
04:43:01 <rdococ> but it's basically the same as yours, with i added on top
04:43:27 <rdococ> I think this kind of stuff is used, just not in this format
04:43:37 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: I'm-a-back
04:43:54 <Sgeo__> Is there a way to get the result to be imaginary? Because afaict exactly that is used as the time dimension
04:43:56 <rdococ> also, since it's mostly position, not rotation, if we add a third dimension they don't have to be quarternions
04:44:13 <rdococ> then just remove the conditional
04:44:49 <hppavilion[1]> Sgeo__: With @?
04:44:50 <Sgeo__> But then we exclude negatives
04:45:04 <hppavilion[1]> Sgeo__: |$| = i -> $ = -i@
04:45:10 <Sgeo__> |a + bi + c@ + d#| = ?
04:45:10 <rdococ> what would it mean for the result to be imaginary?
04:45:21 <hppavilion[1]> Sgeo__: What's #?
04:45:36 <Sgeo__> |#| = i
04:45:43 <hppavilion[1]> Sgeo__: That's just -i@
04:45:47 <rdococ> what would # mean then?
04:46:04 <hppavilion[1]> |n@| = -n
04:46:14 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: Whatever we like
04:46:20 <rdococ> hppavilion[1]: time?
04:46:22 <zgrep> Sgeo__: You mean this thing? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quaternion
04:46:25 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: It doesn't /have/ to mean something
04:46:36 <Sgeo__> hppavilion[1], there's an argument for why |n@| = -n is not a good idea
04:46:42 <hppavilion[1]> Sgeo__: Why?
04:46:52 <Sgeo__> And that |n@| = -|n| makes more sense. Something to do with exponentiation
04:46:56 <rdococ> hppavilion[1]: yeah, but if it's part of a system where everything else means something, then it's weird
04:47:02 <hppavilion[1]> Sgeo__: Ah, good point
04:47:05 <rdococ> I had the |n@| = -|n| idea
04:47:20 <zgrep> hppavilion[1]: https://www.irccloud.com/pastebin/VqUBVapD/
04:47:21 <rdococ> before we realized it was about the time dimension
04:47:56 <Sgeo__> I'm still convinced that $ or # is time and @ or tau is something else
04:48:14 <rdococ> well
04:48:34 <hppavilion[1]> zgrep: Ah, fair enough
04:48:41 <rdococ> distance is a measure of how easy it is to get to somewhere
04:48:51 <hppavilion[1]> Sgeo__: What're $ and #?
04:49:03 <rdococ> if you need to be there in a larger time, then it's easier because you have more time to spare
04:49:12 <hppavilion[1]> Sgeo__: Also, we need to standardize terms instead of saying "x or y"
04:49:13 <Sgeo__> hppavilion[1], you just tried to define $ which I tended to call #
04:49:19 <hppavilion[1]> Sgeo__: Ah
04:49:20 <rdococ> so that's why tau makes distances lower - getting over there in a day is easier than a minute
04:49:41 <rdococ> makes sense?
04:49:45 <rdococ> it's used in other areas
04:49:54 <rdococ> time as a negative dimension isn't a new idea
04:49:59 <hppavilion[1]> Sgeo__: How about we give all the esonums Georgian names?
04:50:13 <rdococ> georgian?
04:50:21 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: http://www.alanwood.net/unicode/georgian.html
04:50:29 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: Georgia the country, not the state
04:50:45 <rdococ> georgia is a state?
04:50:46 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: Greek letters are waaaaaaay overused, and Hebrew is reserved for cardinality
04:50:49 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: Yes
04:50:53 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: Also a country
04:50:59 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: Two different places, though
04:51:02 <rdococ> I have an even better idea
04:51:03 <rdococ> letter t
04:51:09 <rdococ> |a + bi + ct| = √(a² + b² - c²) if a² + b² - c² >= 0, otherwise i√(a² + b² - c²)
04:51:27 <hppavilion[1]> Ⴓ is @
04:51:55 <hppavilion[1]> But... neoletters doesn't render Goergian. Of course.
04:52:04 <rdococ> my chat does
04:52:12 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: OH!
04:52:13 <rdococ> but I'm sticking with t
04:52:18 <Sgeo__> What's wrong with @ similar to ai for something similar to i except with absolute
04:52:19 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: Why don't we name them with emoji?
04:52:26 <\oren\> hppavilion[1]: you should update your neoletters

05:25:01 <\oren\> hmm I wonder why installing the new version over the old doesn't work when the naming of the subfonts changed?
05:25:15 <\oren\> spooky
05:29:23 <Lyka> is this a bad time to ask about a language i made?
05:29:39 <rdococ> can you help me determine what t*t is?
05:29:40 <rdococ> |a + bi + ct| = √(a² + b² - c²) if a² + b² - c² >= 0, otherwise i√(a² + b² - c²)
05:29:52 <Lyka> t^2?
05:30:08 <rdococ> well, yes, but
05:30:12 <rdococ> what's t^2?
05:30:12 <zgrep> Dang. Perl6 has a bunch of neat things it can do... http://tpm2016.zoffix.com/
05:30:20 <rdococ> I can't seem to figure it out
05:31:27 <rdococ> also, how is getting to (5, 5) in 6 seconds as easy as getting to 50, 50 in 51 seconds?
05:31:45 <rdococ> |a + bi + ct| = √(a² + b² / c²) if a² + b² / c² >= 0, otherwise i√(a² + b² / c²)
05:32:00 <zgrep> rdococ: Well, what's t?
05:32:19 <rdococ> |5, 5i, 6t| = sqrt(25 + 25 / 36) = sqrt(50 / 36)
05:32:52 <rdococ> but wait
05:33:03 <rdococ> if we do
05:33:03 <rdococ> |a + bi + ct| = √(a² + b² - c²) if a² + b² - c² >= 0, otherwise i√(a² + b² - c²)
05:33:07 <Lyka> (5*sqrt(2)) / (50*sqrt(2)) == 1/10
05:33:22 <zgrep> rdococAbs[5, 5, 6] = Sqrt[14]
05:33:25 <Lyka> 6/51 != 1/10
05:33:37 <Lyka> sorry
05:33:45 <Lyka> i'm not good at math
05:34:20 <Lyka> passed calc 1 by sucking up during the last 5 weeks
05:34:41 <Lyka> passed calc 2 by dropping out of college
05:34:47 <rdococ> then |1 + 1i + 2t| = sqrt(1 + 1 - 4) = sqrt(-2) but |2 + 2i + 4t| = sqrt(4 + 4 - 16) = sqrt(...oh
05:34:55 <rdococ> wait
05:35:06 <rdococ> -8?
05:35:06 <zgrep> rdococAbs[1, 1, 2] = -Sqrt[2]
05:35:22 <rdococ> ik
05:35:40 <rdococ> should it be - c^2 or / c^2?
05:35:57 <zgrep> rdococAbs is written with - c^2... division?
05:36:09 <rdococ> |a + bi + ct| = √(a² + b² / c²)
05:36:24 <rdococ> getting there in 5 seconds is twice as hard as 10 seconds, same as if you double the distance
05:36:25 <zgrep> Just b/c?
05:36:32 <rdococ> no
05:36:34 <zgrep> Or (a^2+b^2)/(c^2)
05:36:38 <rdococ> yes
05:36:57 -!- Lilly_Goodman has quit (Read error: Connection reset by peer).
05:37:03 <rdococ> I think that will work better
05:37:14 <zgrep> rdococAbs2[1, 2, I] = -Sqrt[5] :P
05:37:43 <rdococ> well, Abs2[1, 1, 2] should be 1 + 1 / 4, or 1/2
05:37:51 <rdococ> well
05:38:12 <rdococ> |1 + 1i + 2t| = sqrt(1 + 1 / 4) = sqrt(1/2)
05:38:36 <rdococ> |2 + 2i + 4t| = sqrt(4 + 4 / 16) = sqrt(1/2)
05:38:41 <rdococ> yay
05:38:44 <rdococ> it works as intended
05:39:48 <zgrep> 1/Sqrt[2]
05:39:53 <zgrep> Abs2[1,1,2] ^
05:40:06 <rdococ> yay
05:40:20 <rdococ> what software are you using? Mathematica?
05:40:22 <zgrep> Yep.
05:40:25 <rdococ> is it free?
05:40:30 <zgrep> Unfortunately, no.
05:40:35 <rdococ> how much does it cost?
05:40:40 <zgrep> Too much.
05:40:51 <rdococ> really?
05:40:55 <zgrep> I get it free, courtesy of school.
05:41:06 <rdococ> I ask how much money something will cost and you give me the vaguest answer.

05:42:36 <rdococ> hmm
05:42:43 <rdococ> or any other language really
05:42:58 <rdococ> just need to figure out t*t
05:43:34 <rdococ> well, multiplying by a unit like 1, i or t should keep the magnitude the same
05:43:42 <rdococ> so |x| = |x*t|
05:43:53 <rdococ> no wait
05:43:59 <rdococ> wait yeah
05:44:00 <rdococ> wait
05:45:43 <Lyka> great.... |x|-rated conversation
05:45:58 <zgrep> Heheh...
05:46:46 <rdococ> well
05:46:53 <rdococ> a space angle is rotation
05:46:58 <rdococ> a space time angle is velocity

10:32:22 <FireFly> b_jonas: well, it has an undo tree that you can query for some info, maybe it includes position
10:32:28 <FireFly> I wouldn't know how to use it though
10:33:14 <FireFly> There's a plugin called gundo that visualizes the undo tree and allows you to jump around in it
10:34:09 <b_jonas> I'd like commands like prevpos and nextpos in joe-editor, which let me quickly jump to places of previous edits. It's very convenient but few editors seem to have it.

16:39:40 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: Try defining a and b to appropriate numbers and working from there

16:40:24 <rdococ> |t| = sqrt(0 / 1) = |0|/|1| = 0 now

16:40:52 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: If |t|=0, then doesn't that just make t=0?

16:42:56 <myname> so... |2t| = 0, but |t + t| = -1
16:43:01 <hppavilion[1]> (sex is gender in this case, not the act between bored teenagers)
16:43:15 <rdococ> |t + t| = sqrt(0 / 2^2) = 0
16:43:23 <rdococ> 2t = t+t
16:43:26 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: How does |0| != 0? What's |0|?
16:43:31 <rdococ> |a + bt| = √(a² / b²) = |a|/|b|
16:43:46 <rdococ> |0| = sqrt(0 / 0)
16:43:56 <myname> in t+t, a is t and b is 1, in 2t, a is 0 and b is 2

16:44:41 <rdococ> |t + t| = sqrt(t^2 / 1) = t...
16:45:01 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: So |0| = r for all r in R
16:45:03 <rdococ> |2t| = sqrt(0 / 4) = |t + t| = sqrt(t^2 / 1)
16:45:08 <rdococ> hppavilion[1]: yes
16:45:11 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: 0/0 can be said to equal any R
16:45:31 <rdococ> sqrt(0 / 4) = sqrt(t^2) = t...??????? what
16:45:41 <rdococ> 0 = t
16:45:49 <rdococ> wth
16:46:07 <rdococ> my original definition was |a + bt| = √(a² - b²)
16:47:24 <rdococ> but that would make it as easy to go 10000 miles in 10001 seconds than to go 1 miles in 2 seconds, whereas the second one is much harder
16:47:33 <rdococ> so I changed it to |a + bt| = √(a² / b²)
16:48:34 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: One of the benefits of @ that t seems to lack is that @ is logical and straightforward; it just has one little gotcha that makes it different, but that can be explained in a single equation with exactly 1 operation (assuming -1 is syntactically a number, not "apply negation to 1")
16:48:48 <rdococ> |@| = -1?
16:48:50 <hppavilion[1]> @ can be explained as |@| = -1
16:48:52 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: Yes
16:48:57 <rdococ> so
16:49:02 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: You are yet to clearly explain t to me.
16:49:13 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: And you have to establish all these other rules in the process
16:49:19 <hppavilion[1]> i has the same property: i^2 = -1
16:49:30 <rdococ> we recently found out that sgeo's latest definition for @ is |a + b@| = √(a² - b²)
16:49:44 <hppavilion[1]> There are other subtleties, but the straightforward part of i is just i=sqrt(-1)
16:49:46 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: Really?
16:49:48 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: OK...
16:49:51 <rdococ> apparently
16:49:53 <rdococ> I think
16:49:54 <rdococ> idk
16:49:58 <rdococ> but |@| = -1
16:50:02 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: That's actually pretty interesting
16:50:17 <rdococ> |bt| = √(0² / b²) = 0
16:50:21 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: And much moer useful than the original
16:50:41 <rdococ> but it's not exactly the same as t
16:50:44 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: But why the division?
16:50:56 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: You have to explain that too
16:51:07 <rdococ> hppavilion[1]: it should be equal difficulty to go 100 miles in 200 seconds as it is to go 10 miles in 20 seconds, t does this but @ doesn't
16:51:26 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: Beautiful esonums can be explained as a single operation on them equaling a number that operation usually cannot produce
16:51:42 <rdococ> |10 + 20t| = |100 + 200t| but |10 + 20@| =/= |100 + 200@|
16:51:54 <rdococ> hmm
16:52:05 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: Good point, I guess
16:52:13 <rdococ> that's why I changed it to /
16:53:02 <rdococ> another idea I had was e^fx = sinh(x) + rcosh(x) where the esonum is f
16:53:11 <rdococ> s/rcosh/fcosh/
16:53:21 <rdococ> hyperbolic sine and cosine
16:53:32 <rdococ> so it's a hyperbolic i
16:53:38 <rdococ> should I change the definition to that?

17:13:37 <oerjan> hm apparently not
17:13:37 <\oren\> for some goddamn reason
17:13:52 <rdococ> what about this instead? t = i^2, t =/= -1
17:15:11 <oerjan> rdococ: that violates basic equality laws, which are logic not arithmetic.
17:15:35 <rdococ> I don't see that stopping any other people from doing stuff like it
17:15:45 <oerjan> thataway lies NaN and other madness.
17:15:52 <rdococ> like I saw an esonum where q^2 = 1 but q =/= 1
17:16:05 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: That's different
17:16:10 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: And it's called "j"
17:16:25 <oerjan> rdococ: that doesn't violate equality. you can have as many solutions to q^2 = 1 as you want in a general algebra.
17:16:39 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: It's one of the three 2d real algebras (or something)
17:16:45 <oerjan> of course it won't be a field if there's more than two.
17:16:50 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: The other two are the complexes and k, which is like j but for 0
17:16:53 <rdococ> ??????
17:17:22 <rdococ> oerjan: so why can't I do sqrt(t) = i then and t =/= -1?
17:17:27 <oerjan> rdococ: but t = i^2 and i^2 = -1 imply t = -1 from pure logic.
17:17:54 <rdococ> q^2 = 1 and sqrt(1) = q
17:18:09 <rdococ> mine isn't any different
17:18:15 <vanila> ??????????????????????????????????
17:18:50 <rdococ> or ti = -i, but t =/= -1
17:19:28 <oerjan> rdococ: because sqrt a = x, is not the unique solution to x^2 = a, but if you don't have (sqrt a)^2 = a then it's not a square root.
17:19:54 <vanila> hw about this
17:19:59 <vanila> start with the ring Z
17:20:07 <vanila> then take the 'algebraic esoclosure'
17:20:13 <rdococ> okay, I'm using the ti = -i definition along with t =/= -1
17:20:20 <vanila> which is where you add infinityl many distinct solutions to every algebraic equation
17:20:26 <oerjan> rdococ: the point is, to get i^2 to be t you have to redefine i^2 which already exists.
17:20:52 <rdococ> oh...
17:20:55 <rdococ> uh...
17:21:08 <vanila> What do you think?

17:22:50 <oerjan> rdococ: ok, just define 2+2 = t while you're at it.
17:23:12 <rdococ> yes good idea
17:23:15 <rdococ> 2 + 2 = t
17:23:17 <rdococ> t - 2 = 2

18:34:15 <ais523> someone posted a patch for a leftpad(2) syscall to the Linux kernel
18:34:25 <ais523> that was at least mildly amusing
18:34:25 <Caesura> The wikipedia table lists the supine... hmmm
18:34:34 <ais523> the kernel devs are pretending to take it seriously
18:35:09 <Caesura> We were taught with the fourth principal part as the PPP
18:35:46 <b_jonas> ais523: ouch...
18:35:53 <b_jonas> leftpad system call
18:36:21 <b_jonas> did they also post a libc wrapper with userspace emulation as fallback to the gnu libc mailing lists?
18:36:32 <ais523> come to think of it they shuld probably implement it in the vDSO

18:50:23 <rdococ> what about an esoteric programming language that's turing complete because of its esonums
18:50:41 <ais523> what's an esonum?
18:51:04 <APic> 42
18:51:09 <rdococ> a number defined to behave like a number, but slightly different
18:51:14 <APic> Seriously.
18:51:22 <APic> Marvin Minsky
18:51:28 <vanila> rdococ, that's a really cool idea i like it
18:51:33 <rdococ> e.g. an esonum called @ could do this - |@| = -1
18:51:47 <vanila> rdococ, did you hear my idea about alg. esoclosure
18:51:53 <rdococ> don't think it was my idea
18:52:44 <rdococ> an esolang with addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, exponentiation and i
18:52:52 <rdococ> 3+2i^5i
18:52:57 <rdococ> e^i
18:53:08 <vanila> #^@
18:53:15 <Phantom_Hoover> p sure you can have a TC esolang just with reals and equality...
18:53:26 <vanila> what about a programing lanugage based on counter examples to tarskis high school algebra problem?
18:53:31 <vanila> the number system
18:53:50 <rdococ> what about
18:53:52 <vanila> those are surely esonumbers
18:54:04 <rdococ> a programming language that doesn't need to evaluate things to manipulate them
18:54:14 <Phantom_Hoover> you mean haskell?
18:54:27 <rdococ> it would be able to detect that 3+2 = 4+1 without evaluating either for example
18:54:55 <rdococ> a better example is 3+2+x = 5+x
18:55:12 <rdococ> it would be able to do that without evaluating x
18:56:02 <Phantom_Hoover> how do you tell which bits to evaluate
18:56:40 <rdococ> super lazy evaluation - if there's any way round evaluating something, do that way
18:57:00 <rdococ> 3+2+x = 5+x for example - you might need to evaluate 3+2, but not x

18:59:39 <rdococ> hppavilion[1]: we were just discussing super lazy evaluation - an idea where a programming language would try its absolute hardest not to evaluate something, it's almost not lazy
18:59:55 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: Yes, I've heard of that
19:00:08 <vanila> how would it know what not to evaluate?
19:00:11 <rdococ> e.g. in such a language, a computer would detect that e^sqrt(-1)x = sin(x) + sqrt(-1)cos(x) without ever knowing that sqrt(-1) = i
19:00:14 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: Ultimate Lazy Evaluation just prints out the program and tells you to "do it your fucking self"
19:00:22 <Caesura> quintopia: Is this better?
19:00:35 <rdococ> vanila: it wouldn't evaluate anything, just manipulate, simplify and stuff
19:01:21 <rdococ> (1/0)/0 = 1, and it wouldn't even know that 1/0 evaluates to an error
19:01:25 -!- jaboja has joined.
19:01:38 <Caesura> You're talking about symbolic computation?
19:01:38 <rdococ> s/(1/0)/0/1/(1/0)/
19:01:40 <rdococ> yes
19:01:49 <Caesura> Pretty sure you can set that up with Wolfram
19:02:07 <rdococ> yes but it detects stuff like 1/0
19:02:19 <rdococ> mine would be too lazy to realize that 1/0 evaluates to an error
19:02:25 <\oren\> huh theres a vuln in emacs this time?
19:02:27 <Caesura> With some redefinitions you coul do that also
19:03:09 <Phantom_Hoover> rdococ, so i guess you just try every evaluation order possible until you get a normalised expression?
19:03:29 <rdococ> perhaps...?
19:03:36 <rdococ> maybe it could use substitution
19:03:42 <rdococ> e.g. 1/1/x = x
19:03:59 <rdococ> or (x^y)^z = x^yz
19:04:01 <Caesura> Wolfram evaluates 1/(1/0) to be 0, it seems
19:04:24 <Caesura> Although it also WARNS you that 1/0 is encountered, it doesn't break the entire thing
19:04:53 <rdococ> oh, right, 1/1/0 = 0
19:04:59 <rdococ> wolfram is right
19:05:12 <Caesura> It is very powerful for symbolic computation
19:05:12 <Phantom_Hoover> rdococ, well i mean at this stage it's not actually true
19:05:13 <rdococ> but it's eager enough to warn you
19:05:18 <Caesura> Yes
19:05:27 <Phantom_Hoover> e.g. (x^y)^z is not true for general real exponents
19:05:56 <rdococ> it's not?
19:06:19 <rdococ> (x^y)^z = x^(y+z)?
19:06:21 <Phantom_Hoover> ((-1)^2)^0.5 is not equal to (-1)^1
19:06:23 <rdococ> I can't remember
19:06:37 <rdococ> you need to add them, right?
19:06:55 <Caesura> No, that's for multiplying exponents of equal bases
19:06:58 <prooftechnique> \oren\: What vuln?
19:07:02 <prooftechnique> Also check the date, just in case
19:07:07 <rdococ> huh...
19:07:15 <Phantom_Hoover> the issue with doing e.g. the 1/0 trick you mentioned is that if you specify all these substitution rules you can evaluate 1/0 to get contradictory values
19:07:16 <rdococ> then what is (x^y)^z?
19:07:29 <Caesura> @PH Yes, thus indeterminate forms
19:07:29 <lambdabot> Maybe you meant: wn v rc pl id do bf @ ? .
19:07:32 <Phantom_Hoover> it's (x^y)^z, that's all you can say
19:07:38 <rdococ> oh
19:07:41 <rdococ> okay
19:08:49 <rdococ> infact, why not make the numbers mathematical symbols?
19:08:59 <\oren\> prooftechnique: i just got a work email saying dont use emacs
19:09:22 <\oren\> i use nano anyway
19:11:14 <rdococ> who knew sqrt(-1) could be so useful

19:12:41 <vanila> no i havent
19:12:46 <vanila> would you recommend it?
19:12:49 <Phantom_Hoover> yeah but after a certai point the results of that can't be called 'numbers'

19:13:07 <vanila> this is really fun
19:13:13 <Caesura> Yes, true, but the first few steps provide useful constructs

20:06:49 -!- hppavilion[1] has quit (Ping timeout: 252 seconds).
20:09:32 <b_jonas> ais523: have anyone examined how densely you can embed information in underload source code such that the underload program can decode it?
20:09:52 <ais523> b_jonas: it's possible to manage at least one bit per character
20:10:07 <b_jonas> ais523: I think you can manage two bits per char at least, but I haven't made a proof
20:10:08 <ais523> IIRC somewhere oerjan made a parser for strings of : and ^
20:10:28 <ais523> going higher there isn't an obvious method, but that doesn't mean there isn't a non-obvious one
20:10:29 <b_jonas> I should examine it, I don't understand underload enough and this seems like a thing that lets me explore it
20:11:14 <ais523> well reaching three bits per character is obviously impossible
20:11:20 <b_jonas> ais523: I think I'll try to decode strings made of ~ ! : *
20:11:24 <ais523> so the true value is ≥ 1 and < 3
20:11:32 <b_jonas> ais523: you could receive fractional bits
20:11:40 <ais523> b_jonas: !~~ and ~~! are eqivalent
20:11:45 <b_jonas> and it doesn't have to be stateless, if parenthesis are involved
20:11:46 <ais523> b_jonas: sure, I expect the number of bits to be fractional
20:11:59 <ais523> also ~~ and :! are equivalent
20:12:12 <ais523> and :*:* is equivalent to :::***
20:12:17 <b_jonas> ais523: no no, if the string (supposed you know the length) is parenthisized, you execute it, then the characters get pushed into the stack, and you can execute them one by one
20:12:25 <b_jonas> ais523: as in, you can use a to parenthisize them
20:12:41 <ais523> b_jonas: a parameterizes an entire stack element, it doesn't break the string into characters
20:12:49 <ais523> ~~ and :! are equivalent; (~~) and (:!) are also equivalent
20:12:53 <ais523> and both equivalent to ()
20:12:58 <b_jonas> you, but ^ opens the parenthesis, doesn't it?
20:13:14 <ais523> b_jonas: it just moves the contents of the TOS onto the program
20:13:27 <ais523> (~~)^ is equivalent to (:!)^ is equivalent to ~~ is equivalent to :!
20:13:32 <ais523> none of them do anything :-P
20:13:42 -!- Caesura has quit (Quit: Leaving).
20:13:51 <b_jonas> ais523: yes, and if that element it moved is a parenthesisized block, then doesn't executing the block push each of the elements to the stack?
20:14:07 <oerjan> b_jonas: you did notice my comment about underload to you above, right?
20:14:31 <ais523> b_jonas: if you move ((~~)) to the program you end up with (~~) in the program, which then pushes (~~) to the stack
20:14:32 <b_jonas> oerjan: ah... I didn't
20:14:45 <ais523> can you give an example of what you're /expecting/ to happen? it feels like you have some sort of fundamental misconception here
20:14:51 <oerjan> that rule 110 program is the :^ parser
20:16:02 <ais523> come to think of it, I suspect that strings of :^a are parseable
20:16:07 <ais523> I'd be pretty surprised if they weren't
20:16:19 <ais523> oh, except if you have a then ^
20:16:22 <ais523> with nothing in between
20:16:25 <ais523> as that's a no-op
20:16:27 <oerjan> ais523: no. right.
20:16:59 <oerjan> i concluded : and a were parseable, but more complicated than what i did, and also uglier.
20:17:00 <ais523> and strings like a:^ would also cause problems
20:17:16 <oerjan> but no other 2 character combinations work
20:17:19 -!- jaboja has quit (Ping timeout: 244 seconds).
20:17:24 <ais523> :a is obviously parseable, because the result of a never affects the second stack element
20:17:28 -!- hppavilion[1] has joined.
20:17:40 <ais523> meaning that you can create a sentinel value that does to act as your zero
20:17:40 <b_jonas> ais523: I expect that the program (xy) puts x and y to the stack (x on top), so (xy)!^ will try to execute y, and (xy)~!^ will try to execute x
20:18:00 <ais523> b_jonas: ah, right, your problem is that the stack isn't a stack of characters
20:18:03 <ais523> it's a stack of strings
20:18:12 <ais523> (xy) pushes a single element, xy, to the stack
20:18:17 <ais523> then ^ moves that element as a whole into the program
20:18:22 <b_jonas> sure, it's a stack of strings because ((xy)) pushes a single string (xy) to the stack
20:18:38 <ais523> normally we put parens around each stack element when discussing Underload
20:18:39 <b_jonas> doesn't executing a parenthesis open it to the stack?
20:18:42 <oerjan> i forgot that S is useless, so you have only 8 usable chars, so clearly 3 bits is impossible, right
20:18:47 <b_jonas> oh...
20:18:52 <b_jonas> what the heck is the point of that?
20:18:53 <ais523> oerjan: and ( and ) have to be paired
20:18:57 <b_jonas> why doesn't it open the parens
20:19:04 -!- Kaynato has joined.
20:19:05 <ais523> b_jonas: because that would be an entirely different language
20:19:08 <b_jonas> I mean, if you don't want to open the parens, you can just a^ instead of ^
20:19:27 <ais523> actually in Underlambda I'm going the other way, removing S
20:19:45 <b_jonas> this makes underload much harder to program
20:19:47 <ais523> this allows you to optimize code both inside the stack and inside the program
20:19:48 <b_jonas> and indeed very different
20:19:48 <ais523> it becomes a pure functional language because the stack elemenets are entirely opaque
20:20:29 <oerjan> ais523: ( and ) pairing is not _really_ a problem as i think that gives only o(something) contribution to the no. of bits.
20:20:32 <b_jonas> ais523: yep
20:20:34 <b_jonas> crazy
20:20:42 <oerjan> but any nop like :! is fatal
20:21:01 <ais523> b_jonas: Underload's meant to be about function representation, not string manipulation
20:21:18 <b_jonas> ais523: it's not "string manipulation", more like tree manipulation
20:21:23 -!- earendel has quit (Ping timeout: 248 seconds).
20:21:34 <b_jonas> because it manipulates elements that are either letters or parenthisized trees
20:21:45 <b_jonas> it doesn't manipulate individual characters of a tree
20:21:52 <ais523> right
20:21:55 <ais523> actually Overload worked like that
20:22:12 <b_jonas> did I accidentally invent a language?
20:23:19 <ais523> perhaps, I don't like it though :-(
20:23:23 <rdococ> what about a language where a sentence is an array of words
20:23:26 <ais523> the set of commands doesn't make much sense in this language
20:23:27 <rdococ> and a word has a meaning
20:23:31 <ais523> you'd probably want a string compare command too, at least
20:23:36 <rdococ> e.g.
20:23:43 <rdococ> the cat ate the dog
20:23:56 <rdococ> cat is the noun, ate is the verb, dog is the subject, or victim
20:24:17 <b_jonas> ais523: no no, not a string compare command
20:24:25 <b_jonas> I'd want a nop command though, probably space and newline
20:24:42 <b_jonas> make that space, tab, lf, cr
20:24:58 -!- AnotherTest has quit (Quit: ZNC - http://znc.in).
20:25:22 <ais523> b_jonas: this is like having C, plus a command that breaks a function pointers into individual asm opcodes in the function it points to
20:25:30 <ais523> and yet have no way to determine what those opcodes are other than executing them
20:26:22 <b_jonas> I'm reminded to two obfus in other languages: the lua one I wrote that uses the same string as both code and data so that if you try to tamper with the code then the output breaks completely, and pts's obfu in dc which uses the same strings as both code and data: dc can't really examined things so I thought that was impossible, but it turns out dc has a length command that queries the length of a string
20:27:28 <b_jonas> ais523: yes, I can see why you don't like that concept
20:27:51 <ais523> it's just a mix of paradigms that doesn't make sense

20:39:58 <b_jonas> oerjan: I guess top on right makes sense in a forth/postscript-like language where lots of statements are literal so just push on the stack, so the stack often looks similar to the code

20:40:31 <oerjan> b_jonas: anyway half the point of the notation we've settled on is that it makes it easy to see underload execution as a program transformation - where stack elements don't need to be distinguished from the program.
20:40:50 <b_jonas> oerjan: right
20:41:07 <b_jonas> and it seems that http://www.cs.cornell.edu/icfp/task.htm puts the stack top on the right as well

20:51:21 <rdococ> who needs conditionals
20:51:39 * Taneb needs conditionals
20:52:00 <rdococ> you could remove the IF from Lua and it'd still be turing complete

Should I replace the webchat link, replace the webchat link but mention qwebirc as an alternative, add a kiwi irc link as an alternative, or do nothing?
22:28:23 <oerjan> well you're doing the pun equivalent of cockney rhyming
22:28:48 <shachaf> oerjan: ok fine
22:28:49 <b_jonas> Note that kiwi irc doesn't require people to fill a captcha, which can be considered either an advantage or a disadvantage.
22:29:04 <shachaf> oerjan: you can only carbon date people if you're carbonogamous
22:29:13 <b_jonas> Do we have a category for a language that is known to be weaker than Turing complete?
22:29:23 <boily> b_jonas: PDA?
22:29:27 <b_jonas> Fuun RNA is not turing complete.
22:29:38 <b_jonas> boily: it's not equivalent to a PDA
22:29:42 <boily> shachaf: the original pun was 0.9 shachafs, but the remastered version... 0.55 shachafs.
22:29:47 <ais523> b_jonas: if there are multiple working webchats you should probably list all of them and put your favourite first
22:29:52 <boily> b_jonas: fuun?
22:30:22 <b_jonas> boily: http://esolangs.org/wiki/Fuun_RNA although that page doesn't tell enough to glaen the computational strength, you have to read the specs
22:30:46 <boily> fungot: glaen?
22:30:46 <fungot> boily: oh yeah?! well you're a funny guy, though.)
22:31:11 <b_jonas> ais523: ok. I'll test if it still works first though.
22:31:53 <oerjan> b_jonas: i thought the one that was listed was freenode's official webchat. they've blocked others on occasion i think.
22:32:01 <oerjan> (well, at least one.)
22:32:18 <shachaf> boily: what's the threshold for a mapoling
22:32:33 <b_jonas> oerjan: yes, qwebirc is what the freenode admins themselves run, and they suggest it on their homepage
22:33:07 <b_jonas> oerjan: as in, freenode runs a qwebirc webchat server itself which lets you connect to freenode
22:33:25 <oerjan> <b_jonas> Do we have a category for a language that is known to be weaker than Turing complete? <-- not a general one, no
22:33:34 <b_jonas> But I prefer kiwiirc. Advantages include that it lets you connect to any irc network.
22:33:35 <ais523> we have specific sub-TC categories
22:33:44 <b_jonas> ais523: right
22:33:45 <ais523> and most sub-TC languages are either in one of them or very very weak
22:34:09 <oerjan> <boily> fungot: glaen? <-- like glean, but you might get a leprechaun curse if you're not careful.
22:34:10 <fungot> oerjan: oh ok. they are comparable. the resistance is useless. it's not all that magical.), tell me

22:36:18 <b_jonas> At least so I think. I'm not quote sure how Fuun RNA works really.
22:36:24 <b_jonas> You'd have ot read the specs.

22:38:25 <boily> shachaf: it's logarithmic for the most part, but then it gets linear for things approaching zero. avoids problems with derivatives and infinite slopes.

22:45:06 <b_jonas> And xkcd is never experiencing technical difficulties.
22:45:14 <b_jonas> I think there's probably a comic, it's just well hidden so I can't see it.

22:46:02 <hppavilion[1]> Wait, that won't work...
22:46:16 <hppavilion[1]> Unless HackEgo has some direct-to-IRC command

22:47:04 <b_jonas> hppavilion[1]: oh, you're "pondering making"
22:47:11 <b_jonas> whew
22:47:13 <hppavilion[1]> b_jonas: `longcat would be like cat, but it prints multiple messages to show the whole file.
22:47:21 <oerjan> b_jonas: anyway, most of the categories are upper bounds, so it's fine to be weaker.
22:47:26 <b_jonas> hppavilion[1]: yeah, but it doesn't exist
22:47:30 <hppavilion[1]> b_jonas: Which would have potential for abuse
22:47:34 <b_jonas> hppavilion[1]: we have a command that pastes to a website instead
22:47:37 <hppavilion[1]> b_jonas: But would also be useful for long HackEgo messages
22:47:52 <hppavilion[1]> b_jonas: The problem is I don't think there's a way to make HackEgo print more than one message
22:48:01 <b_jonas> oerjan: but the wiki says the linear bounded automata is an equivalence actegory, not an upper bound
22:48:59 <oerjan> <hppavilion[1]> Unless HackEgo has some direct-to-IRC command <-- nope.
22:49:01 <b_jonas> anyway, if any of you figure out which category applies (for which you may have to read and ponder the spec very carefully, for it's an esolang so the comp class may not be obvious, even after the definition), and read the wiki descriptions of categories, feel free to add it
22:49:09 <hppavilion[1]> oerjan: Didn't think so
22:50:22 <b_jonas> hppavilion[1]: jevalbot is also bounded output, it won't print more than 6 lines of output per evaluation command (in my default config and in evalj; j-bot has the limit raised to I don't know how many lines)
22:50:52 <hppavilion[1]> b_jonas: OK
22:51:39 <b_jonas> ] ,.i._65 NB. example
22:51:39 <evalj> b_jonas: 64
22:51:39 <evalj> b_jonas: 63
22:51:39 <evalj> b_jonas: 62
22:51:39 <evalj> b_jonas: 61
22:51:39 <evalj> b_jonas: 60
22:51:40 <evalj> b_jonas: ...
22:52:07 <b_jonas> You can print 6 full lines instead of an ellipsis in the sixth line, but you can't print more than six
22:52:12 <Taneb> ...do we have two different bots specifically for evaluating J
22:52:20 <b_jonas> Taneb: no, it's the same bot, two instances
22:52:26 <b_jonas> evalj, source:
22:52:26 <evalj> b_jonas, jevalbot source is http://www.math.bme.hu/~ambrus/pu/jevalbot.tgz
22:52:30 <hppavilion[1]> b_jonas: That's even worse
22:52:31 <b_jonas> j-bot, source:
22:52:31 <j-bot> b_jonas, jevalbot source is http://www.math.bme.hu/~ambrus/pu/jevalbot.tgz
22:52:46 <hppavilion[1]> b_jonas: Why. Why do we have two identical bots?
22:52:49 <Taneb> b_jonas, I think I was using "bot" to mean "account associated with an instance of a bot"
22:52:51 <hppavilion[1]> b_jonas: What is the reason?
22:53:28 <b_jonas> We used to have three different irc bots that can evaluate J, namely besides jevalbot, buubot used to be able to evaluate it (I wrote the J evaluator plugin myself), plus NotJack had a bot he wrote in J.
22:53:56 <b_jonas> hppavilion[1]: evalj is my instance but I don't run it constantly, only very occasionally start it up and then stop it within a day when I turn off my home computer
22:53:59 <Taneb> Can EgoBot? If not, why not?
22:54:22 <b_jonas> Taneb: it would probably be possible to install a J interpreter to hackego
22:54:33 <hppavilion[1]> I can't get my IRC client to work for some reason...
22:54:34 <b_jonas> we could even do it as a user
22:54:42 <b_jonas> but it would output only 1 line per command of course

03:52:19 <shachaf> Assembling is a task like any other task.
03:52:32 <rdococ> the assembly would be called ASS, because it should be a real pain in the ass to program in

05:07:57 <ais523> I was accusing PowerPoint, which has the same computational class, as not being a language

05:25:28 <rdococ> Perhaps you mean "sleep" instead?

05:27:46 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: What dictionary?
05:28:01 <rdococ> AbstractRdococFactory is an associative array.
05:28:06 <rdococ> Or dictionary, or table.
05:28:25 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: Really?
05:28:30 <rdococ> It has a few functions, one of which is :CreateRdococ()

05:37:27 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: Yay!
05:37:33 * rdococ is now googling a processor
05:37:54 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: I don't want to use Von Neumann or Harvard if I can avoid it, but I still want it to be stored-program, as unstored-program is stupid
05:37:59 <rdococ> what kind of processor?
05:38:07 <rdococ> stored-program?
05:38:24 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: Stored-program means the program is loaded from memory
05:38:29 <rdococ> unstored?
05:38:39 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: Loaded from a separate memory
05:38:47 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: Not really "unstored", but "stored somewhere else"
05:38:48 <rdococ> hmm
05:38:58 <rdococ> what about a processor which doesn't have transistors?
05:39:11 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: We're emulating it, so transistors don't matter
05:39:18 <rdococ> Oh, okay.
05:39:18 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: Look at the diagrams for Von Neumann and Harvard
05:39:59 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/e/e5/Von_Neumann_Architecture.svg and https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/3/3f/Harvard_architecture.svg
05:40:46 <rdococ> "A central processing unit (CPU) is the electronic circuitry within a computer that carries out the instructions of a computer program by performing the basic arithmetic, logical, control and input/output (I/O) operations specified by the instructions."
05:40:52 <rdococ> You mean that kind of processor?
05:41:21 <rdococ> The ones that have assembly programming languages?
05:41:26 <ais523> clearly we need an esoteric food processir
05:42:19 <rdococ> Who needs logic?
05:42:37 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: Yes, that kind of processor. But memory is part of this processor
05:42:45 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: Assembly, yes, close enough.
05:42:55 <hppavilion[1]> Only a few esometers off
05:43:02 <rdococ> Hahaha.
05:43:10 <rdococ> You mean esounits.
05:43:26 <rdococ> Unless esometer is the name of your esounit.
05:43:31 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: it is
05:43:44 <rdococ> This is getting more and more esoteric as time goes on. Esotime.
05:43:48 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: An esometer measures distance from metal and distance apart relative to the metal
05:44:17 <rdococ> Esolet's esoprefix esoevery esoword esowith esoeso.
05:44:19 <hppavilion[1]> Haskell is far above the metal, python less far, C fairly close, ASM a single esometer, and electrons are 0
05:44:33 <rdococ> Interesting.
05:44:35 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: Just the nouns
05:44:37 <rdococ> Um, what about -1?

05:44:47 <rdococ> -2?

05:44:56 <rdococ> -3?
05:44:59 <hppavilion[1]> s/iota/zot
05:45:08 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: Divide by zero error
05:45:10 <rdococ> i?
05:45:17 <rdococ> 3 + 2i?
05:45:17 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: Nope.
05:45:19 <rdococ> @?
05:45:25 <rdococ> 3 / 0?
05:45:30 <hppavilion[1]> Esometers don't support esonums
05:45:34 <rdococ> 0^0?
05:45:36 <hppavilion[1]> For some reason
05:45:43 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: Everything
05:45:50 <rdococ> -1230132012391238843?
05:46:14 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: That would be quantum thueskell
05:46:23 <rdococ> Are we actually going to emulate the actual units themselves - something like Logisim, or just draw it?
05:46:37 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: We're going to emulate the units
05:46:46 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: So we'll have a single memory unit
05:46:50 <rdococ> Awesome!
05:47:04 <rdococ> Who needs arithmetic?
05:47:16 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: Do you know of any online notepad++-like collaborative editors?

05:53:20 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: Of course not
05:53:24 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: So esoprocessor.
05:53:37 <rdococ> Esoprocessor!
05:53:55 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: If you like, we can have complex opcodes if you can figure out a way to accomplish it
05:53:57 <rdococ> I think we shouldn't implement arithmetic.
05:54:14 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: We should, but it should treat all numbers as imaginaries
05:54:19 <rdococ> Hmm...
05:54:26 <rdococ> That would certainly be weird.
05:54:47 <hppavilion[1]> So instead of 256 sequential opcodes, we can have something like a 16x16 array of opcodes

05:59:02 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: Not all at once though
05:59:10 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: He has a list that he shuffles then iterates over
05:59:30 <rdococ> How are we going to collaborate on the processor?
05:59:40 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: I don't know

06:00:12 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: There's an "Arithmetic and Logic unit" in most processors. Why don't we also have an "Algebra and Nonsense Unit"?
06:00:32 <hppavilion[1]> In fact, we should split the ALU into the AU and the LU
06:01:01 <rdococ> Do we need an AU?
06:01:14 <rdococ> Or, why not make things awkward by removing the LU, but not the AU?
06:02:25 <rdococ> Why not make a GPU that's intended to be used as a CPU?
06:03:02 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: APU
06:03:10 <rdococ> APU?
06:03:23 <hppavilion[1]> Audio PU
06:03:34 <rdococ> @_@
06:04:14 <rdococ> Why not have multiple processors that work together?
06:04:24 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: Multiprocessing?
06:04:50 <rdococ> The RWPU, the APU, the LPU, the NPU, the GPU, the SPU, the ZPU, the HPU, the RPU...

06:05:53 <rdococ> Read & Write Processing Unit, the Arithmetic Processing Unit, Logic Processing Unit, Nonsense Processing Unit, um
06:06:30 <rdococ> Or let's get rid of the control unit and make a declarative esoprocessor?
06:06:39 <hppavilion[1]> Nice
06:07:11 <rdococ> Haskell Assembly
06:07:21 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: Haskssmbly
06:07:27 <rdococ> Haskembly
06:07:32 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: There we go
06:07:33 <rdococ> or Prosembly
06:07:37 <rdococ> for Prolog
06:08:14 <rdococ> I'm leaning towards Prosembly
06:08:26 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: How does it process in a machine-doable way without a list of sequential instructions w/ jumps?
06:08:46 <rdococ> I'm thinking about that.
06:09:40 <rdococ> Well, first it evaluates the output. To do that, it needs to check the rules to see if they apply. If they do apply, apply them.
06:10:10 <rdococ> Or, in Prosembly:
06:10:19 <rdococ> um...
06:10:56 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: Oh! A language based on looping through a list of possible conditional transformations and applying them until a termination case is reached!
06:11:09 <rdococ> Hmm, that could work.
06:11:39 <rdococ> Isn't that basically Prolog?
06:12:22 <rdococ> Well, either way, its assembly could go like this-
06:12:51 <rdococ> mov father, (parent, male) or something?
06:13:19 <rdococ> That's pseudo assembly for copying the meaning of being a parent, and being male, to being a father.
06:13:44 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: Uhuh. And how the hell does that work on a machine level? With binary registers and shit?
06:13:58 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: Be sure that your ideas make sense xD
06:14:05 <rdococ> mov [001], [002]?
06:14:10 <rdococ> I...honestly dunno.
06:14:19 <rdococ> What if father, parent and male are memory addresses?
06:14:38 <rdococ> What if we need to make father point to both parent and male?
06:15:52 <rdococ> father (0000) -> parent (0001), male (0010)... then in pseudo assembly, mov father 0011?
06:16:01 <rdococ> I'm using... flags.
06:16:08 <rdococ> well, flag like things.
06:18:12 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: http://xkcd.com/1291/
06:19:40 <rdococ> But my mov [0000] 0011 makes sense, right?

12:37:29 <myname> rdococ: are you still trying to make your own wannabe-prolog?
12:37:53 <oerjan> . o O ( Yes. )
12:40:35 <b_jonas> ais523: is it at least possible to decode strings that are made of arbitrary combinations of ^ ~^ :^ !^ ? Because that would already be slightly more than a bit of information per source byte.
12:41:50 <ais523> ooh, good catch, I think it is
12:41:56 <ais523> probably a^ too
12:42:00 <ais523> wait no
12:42:05 <ais523> I'm tired
12:42:06 <b_jonas> ais523: yes, it might be extendible
12:42:10 <ais523> a~^ would work though
12:42:21 <b_jonas> I'm just trying to set a baseline first
12:42:23 <oerjan> *^ perhaps
12:42:30 <ais523> ouch
12:42:38 <ais523> seems possible but also seems like a pain
12:42:58 <ais523> probably you could do : ^ ~^ :^ !^ *^
12:43:10 <ais523> err, not :^ in addition to : and ^ obviously
12:43:28 <b_jonas> Maybe I should try and write a decoder. (Then you'll also need to write a channel encoder, possibly an arithmetic compression one, in underload, but that shouldn't be VERY hard.)
12:43:28 <oerjan> no
12:43:36 <oerjan> ais523: :^ = : ~^
12:43:44 <ais523> oh yes
12:44:01 <ais523> I shouldn't work on this when tired
12:44:02 <b_jonas> ais523: well, I was thinking of !!^ as an addition
12:44:25 <ais523> you could probably make it work with any specific finite number of ! actually
12:44:33 <b_jonas> But first I should try to decode JUST the four clusters ^ ~^ :^ !^
12:44:36 <b_jonas> at first stage
12:44:41 <ais523> and any specific finite number of :
12:44:53 <ais523> (and any specific finite number of ! followed by any specific finie number of :, perhaps?)
12:45:15 <b_jonas> ais523: well sure, but just any finite number of ! tends to a finite limit of information, so it's not worth to go very far.
12:45:39 <oerjan> ending things with ^ seems like a good idea because that's sort of the point where you hand control back to the decoder
12:45:41 <b_jonas> Well, obviously, since you certainly can't go above four bits per source bytes in information density.
12:45:50 <b_jonas> But still
12:45:55 <b_jonas> I dunno, I should try a basic one first
12:46:02 <b_jonas> to learn how underload works
12:46:26 <b_jonas> Is there a good underload interpreter that's fast, and one that helps debugging?
12:46:43 <ais523> JS interpreter on the esoteric files archive is good for debugging but slow
12:46:44 <b_jonas> I mean ones that are known to be correct on all inputs.
12:47:07 <ais523> well nobody implements the escape syntax
12:47:24 <b_jonas> I can also try to write an interpreter myself of course, because why not.
12:47:46 <oerjan> you could have the top of the stack be something like ((:*:*)P)((::**)P)((:*)P)(()P)
12:48:04 <b_jonas> oerjan: um, what's P ?
12:48:06 <oerjan> where P is a program that checks what numbers are on the stack in the known positions
12:48:22 <oerjan> and decodes what the part of your code before ^ did from that
12:48:37 <oerjan> oh wait
12:48:46 <oerjan> that doesn't work as written
12:49:03 <oerjan> because P cannot find the numbers without executing the P's inside
12:49:04 <b_jonas> no no, don't tell me, I'll try to figure out myself, that way I'll learn more of how underload works.
12:49:09 <oerjan> OKAY
12:49:27 <b_jonas> But of course feel free to implement something like this yourself if you want.
12:49:31 <oerjan> i was just trying to think of a general scheme that could work with many ...^ codes
12:51:20 <oerjan> hm that kind of scheme only really handles : ! and ~
12:51:40 <oerjan> oh which is what you were trying, essentially
12:51:48 <b_jonas> the interesting thing would be to find a code that involves some parenthisized sequences too, like ()~^ I'm not sure if that's possible (at least in a meaningful way where you could't just write : instead of ()
12:52:53 <b_jonas> it could even be sequences that have something in the parenthesis, possibly even a sequence of parenthisized stuff without any ^ outside
12:53:13 <oerjan> <b_jonas> Well, obviously, since you certainly can't go above four bits per source bytes in information density. <-- three
12:53:14 <b_jonas> but that's not likely to be more efficient than the simple het thing
12:53:36 <b_jonas> oerjan: I don't remember how many valid characters there are exactly
12:54:00 <b_jonas> S can probably be ignored because a program can't distinguish it form !
12:54:22 <oerjan> b_jonas: right, and then there are 8 remaining
12:54:25 <b_jonas> so apart from that there's ~ : ! * ( ) a ^ that's eigh characters indeed
12:54:35 <b_jonas> yup, then definitely below 3 bits per source char
12:55:36 <oerjan> obviously the true limit _will_ hit the halting problem at some point, when you start trying to include as arbitrary nested programs as you can
12:56:38 <oerjan> (intuitively, that is. not a proof.)

14:30:43 <b_jonas> are all avatar cards like that?
14:30:45 <b_jonas> this is crazy
14:34:57 <b_jonas> I assumed they had different suffixes, just like how different cards representing the same in-story famous characters have different suffixes
14:35:15 <zzo38> The avatar has the word "Avatar" at the end, apparently

21:16:57 <zzo38> It does have to do with Infocom
21:23:31 <int-e> I really wish you would establish some context for your questions. The first thing I found in this case was a program called "YZIP" by a company called "Yellow Software", apparently for Symbian...
21:24:08 <int-e> (And no, I don't.)
21:27:05 <zzo38> Z-machine does not require specific formats to be used for picture libraries. I am calling this format "YZIP picture library" because it is documented together with that Z-machine version. (The other format is "XZIP picture library" format, which does not support compression or colours, and as far as I know is not in use.)
21:28:56 <zzo38> (A few XZIP implementations even use YZIP picture libraries. "XZIP" and "YZIP" here are versions of Z-machine code, although they are not related to the picture library formats except by being documented together.)
21:29:42 -!- jaboja has quit (Ping timeout: 276 seconds).
21:32:14 <zzo38> One idea I did think of is two pass compression, where it first encodes in the simple way and calculates the Huffman tree, and then encodes again by using RLE codes that compensate for the generated Huffman tree and then create a new tree.
21:33:03 <b_jonas> zzo38: that might work, I dunno
21:33:48 <b_jonas> wait, it's using RLE only, not general copies from back?
21:33:57 <b_jonas> (as in, copy from any previous offset)
21:34:11 <b_jonas> (at least within some distance limit)
21:34:23 <b_jonas> then I'm not sure it helps much
21:44:30 <zzo38> It is not DEFLATE; only RLE and Huffman, although each scanline is XOR by the scanline above
21:46:39 -!- boily has joined.
21:48:10 <b_jonas> zzo38: it needn't be deflate specifically, there are also simple compression schemes with copying from back but a simple fixed encoding of the references and literals instead of a variable huffman coding.
21:49:27 <zzo38> Yes I suppose LZ77, although in this case I would want to figure out optimization with this particular scheme and not DEFLATE or LZ77.
21:49:37 <lifthrasiir> zzo38: do you mean that the RLE code itself is going to be a part of tree?
21:49:55 <b_jonas> zzo38: right
21:50:06 <b_jonas> zzo38: that's at least easier to solve
21:50:48 <b_jonas> although you may need something more tricky to find the optimal huffman table
21:51:02 <zzo38> lifthrasiir: Both the pixel values (the ones XOR with the above) and the RLE codes are part of the Huffman tree
21:51:18 <lifthrasiir> yeah, XOR is a primitive delta coding
21:51:34 <lifthrasiir> (or residual coding, whichever you prefer)
21:52:04 <b_jonas> zzo38: how many different pixel values (colors) are there?
21:52:12 <zzo38> b_jonas: Up to sixteen.
21:52:30 <b_jonas> zzo38: are you allowed to break the image to chunks with different huffman tables?
21:53:21 <zzo38> No, although different pictures can share tables or use different ones
21:53:47 <b_jonas> I see
21:54:27 <b_jonas> Hmm, are you allowed to change the huffman table in the middle of a JPEG image? I think you're not allowed to change the _quantization table_ which is a big problem.
21:54:49 <zzo38> I don't know how JPEG works, although I could try to look up to see
21:54:49 <b_jonas> zzo38: what size are these pictures?
21:56:18 <zzo38> The Z-machine pictures may be of any size, but are generally of low resolution

22:09:24 <pikhq> If I'm reading this right, you can change both the Huffman *and* quantization tables in JPEG.
22:09:24 <b_jonas> pikhq: in the middle of an image? really?
22:09:24 <b_jonas> that would be great
22:09:28 <b_jonas> (although it's probably hard to find an encoder that can actually produce such a jpeg)
22:10:01 <b_jonas> There's an image I'd really like to encode that way.
22:10:48 <b_jonas> (Well, ideally I'd like browsers to just start supporting more modern image formats so that I don't have to stick to jpeg and png and gif, but you get the idea.)
22:16:51 <pikhq> Yeah, it certainly looks as though the spec permits you to insert a new quantization table between DCT blocks.

02:00:59 <Anarchokawaii> what if someone made a scope oriented language

02:02:34 <Anarchokawaii> like
02:02:45 <Anarchokawaii> it's highly specific about scopes and stuff
02:02:54 <Anarchokawaii> so much of the syntax
02:03:08 <Anarchokawaii> would be oriented about which scope something is in

04:00:02 <izabera> http://giflib.sourceforge.net/whatsinagif/bits_and_bytes.html i'm reading these docs and some things are confusing
04:00:51 <izabera> like, what's the difference between the color resolution and the size of the color table? :\
04:00:57 <izabera> in their example it's the same value
04:01:00 <zzo38> I don't know it well enough, although I have once written a program to alter the palette of a GIF picture

04:01:49 <izabera> i'm just writing a program to generate a gif from a go match
04:02:33 <quintopia> izabera: i suppose one could write an uncompressed gif by hand, but i aint gonna try to get optimal lzw compression with mental math :p
04:02:54 <izabera> well i'll do uncompressed first
04:03:57 <izabera> surely it won't take too much space anyway, it uses like only 3 colors and at most ~300 frames

04:13:58 <quintopia> like
04:14:09 <izabera> like learning purposes i guess
04:14:23 <quintopia> by typing bytes into a text editor one by one?

04:17:00 <rdococ> you know how there are games of "werewolf" in irc channels?
04:17:00 <izabera> and it outputs separate gif files and you have to create the animation with imagemagick
04:17:16 <rdococ> why hasn't a murder mystery game been ported to irc yet?
04:17:37 <zzo38> You could also to output PNG or Farbfeld, and then combine with ImageMagick (and ffpng if necessary)

04:18:02 <izabera> farbfeld is big endian :|

09:22:00 <Taneb> If a language is 1-dimensional textually but 2-dimensional conceptually
09:22:22 <Taneb> Should it be categorized as "Two-dimensional languages"?
09:23:39 <ais523> Taneb: see how I categorised Formula :-D
09:24:33 <Taneb> The language I'm thinking about is COMPLEX, which I need to finish the article for but is described on my esolangs page
09:24:37 <ais523> more seriously, Paintfuck fits your description and doesn't seem to be categorized as multi-dimensional
09:25:06 <ais523> I'd call COMPLEX two-dimensional
09:25:13 <Taneb> Instructions are conceptually laid out on a grid but written sequentially with line numbers describing their location a la BASIC
09:26:28 <Taneb> I feel like COMPLEX is the language of mine I'd have the easiest time writing a compiler for
09:28:10 <Taneb> I might give it ago after my exam on the 15th
09:28:25 <ais523> well, the physical order of the source doesn't matter, right?
09:28:37 <ais523> just like you can line-permute a BASIC program and it doesn't change the meaning
09:29:11 <Taneb> Not at all
09:29:22 <Taneb> I ran the example program through shuf
09:29:48 <Taneb> Is this a "syntax is the least important part of a language" situation?
09:31:01 <ais523> I think so, unless you're trying very hard to make it relevant
09:31:10 <ais523> (which in this case you might be; I'm not sure)
09:31:45 <Taneb> The syntax was where I started with the language
09:31:59 <Taneb> I wanted BASIC but with complex line numbers, and a way to make them useful
09:32:31 <Taneb> And then I added features until I thought it had enough features
09:32:41 <Taneb> And then I removed GOTO because I realised it wasn't necessary
09:33:25 <Taneb> That's basically how the language happened
09:34:50 <Taneb> I mostly did it to see how easy it was to use Alex and Happy for lexing and parsing in Haskell
09:35:31 <Taneb> (the answer is "easier than I expected, and for this an awful lot easier than parsec"

14:13:15 <\oren\> I wonder where the Georgian alphabet came from?
14:16:18 -!- tromp has joined.
14:17:07 <b_jonas> \oren\: someone saw the rich history of the {Phoenician, Greek, Coptic, Latin, Blackletter, Old Church Slavonic, Russian, Serbian} family of alphabets, with all the crazy variants of cursive writing that gave rise to different sets of lowercase letters, and decided to one-up it,
14:17:14 <b_jonas> just to show that he's the best conscripter ever.
14:18:03 <b_jonas> \oren\: and they hid a lot of evidence to fool archeologists that it has a two thousand year old history, plus mind controlled ten thousand people to start teaching it.
14:18:46 <b_jonas> \oren\: She probably also saw the Armenian alphabet, and correctly figured out that that's the *wrong* way to create an alphabet not derived from phoenician.
14:20:12 <Taneb> ?
14:20:25 <boily> անհեթեթություն:
14:21:25 <Taneb> That does not render for me
14:21:47 <\oren\> it's Armenian letters
14:22:27 <Taneb> I went to look at the alphabet on Wikipedia
14:22:29 <\oren\> I recently noticed that my font is missing some Georgian letters
14:22:45 <Taneb> It looks... influenced by Cyrillic/Greek/Latin
14:23:39 <\oren\> yah, armenian looks like alternate-universe latin or something, while georgian looks like nothing I can describe
14:24:12 <b_jonas> Taneb: the typography of Georgian is influenced a lot by Greek, Latin, Cyrillic, whereas Hebrew and Arabic and Braille and the American Sign Language fingerspelling have completely different typographical conventions from Latin.
14:25:00 <Taneb> \oren\, Georgian and Burmese I get mixed up
14:25:11 <b_jonas> Taneb: However, the letter shapes of Georgian aren't derived from Phoenician, Greek, Latin etc, whereas the letter shapes (and alphabetic order where approperiate) of Hebrew, Arabic, and some of european Braille and ASL fingerspelling _are_ derived from it.
14:25:29 <b_jonas> The typography and the letters are two different dimensions.
14:26:04 <\oren\> Taneb: ooh, interesting
14:26:31 <Taneb> I'd be extremely surprised if they share a common influence, though
14:28:10 -!- Reece` has joined.

20:18:39 <hppavilion[1]> ais523: Fair enough
20:18:40 <ais523> in other words, you have a factory attribute factory
20:18:59 <hppavilion[1]> ais523: Fine, it's OO, but done in a LISPy way
20:19:08 <hppavilion[1]> ais523: If you have a better joke, use it.
20:19:19 <ais523> I'd just have added a few apostrophes

20:31:26 <Taneb> oerjan, sorry for the slow response, I was having an accidental nap then getting a drink of water and otherwise not paying attention to IRC
20:31:52 <Taneb> oerjan, when is your birthday?
20:32:46 <int-e> . o O ( after christmas )
20:33:22 <oerjan> i was born on a perfect day hth
20:33:29 <ais523> oerjan: the 6th and/or 28th?
20:33:35 <shachaf> both of those
20:33:36 <ais523> hmm, 28th of June?
20:33:40 <shachaf> yes
20:34:14 <oerjan> it could only go downhill from there, really.
20:34:17 <rdococ> I forgot how to list all the channels I havr egistered
20:34:44 <rdococ> wow, shachaf was born on tau day?
20:34:49 <rdococ> no
20:34:50 <rdococ> oerjan
20:34:54 <rdococ> I mean
20:34:55 <rdococ> wait
20:35:03 <rdococ> who's the one who was born on a perfect day?
20:35:03 <ais523> rdococ: /ns listchans is the closest I can see
20:35:06 <rdococ> I got confused
20:35:14 <int-e> That may be the best argument pro tau that I've seen so far.
20:35:21 * oerjan swats rdococ -----###
20:35:21 <ais523> look for channels where you have +F permission
20:35:24 <shachaf> please see the two words preceding "born on a perfect day" hth
20:35:27 <oerjan> int-e: well it doesn't work on me
20:35:50 <shachaf> oerjan: presumably you were born on 496-06-28
20:36:08 <shachaf> so all will be right again on 8128-06-28
20:36:30 <shachaf> dinosoerjan
20:36:34 <int-e> tsk, what was I thinking... Channel #realworld created Tue Dec 29 05:00:21 2009

20:38:09 <oerjan> shachaf: maybe not _that_ perfect.
20:38:40 <rdococ> I'm testing a new bot I just made, using a terrible scripting language - you get three guesses as to what it is
20:39:03 <hppavilion[1]> shachaf: Maybe rdococ just has absurdly short scrollback?
20:39:11 <hppavilion[1]> shachaf: Perhaps a newsbanner-style IRC client

20:39:28 <int-e> rdococ: php, lua, javascript, ruby... oops.
20:39:29 <rdococ> hppavilion[1]: nah, I was typing as I was reading
20:39:35 <rdococ> int-e: no, worse
20:39:39 <hppavilion[1]> shachaf: That would mean they couldn't see "I was born on a perfect day"
20:39:42 <oerjan> malbolge
20:39:50 * oerjan optimist
20:39:52 <shachaf> hppavilion[1]: but they responded to that comment
20:40:04 <rdococ> I was just reading while I typed it
20:40:06 <hppavilion[1]> shachaf: Yes, but they may have read it and then forgot who sent it
20:40:11 <shachaf> look
20:40:13 <shachaf> it doesn't matter
20:40:30 <int-e> rdococ: bash?
20:40:31 <Taneb> oerjan, I was born on a prime day
20:40:50 <rdococ> no, I didn't read the part about oerjan until it was too late
20:40:53 <oerjan> well we now have proof rdococ is not a goldfish, since goldfish have reasonably good memory hth
20:40:56 <rdococ> int-e: no, even worse
20:41:09 <int-e> dc
20:41:15 <rdococ> oerjan: what? I didn't forget anything...
20:41:20 <rdococ> int-e: nope, evener worser
20:41:24 <oerjan> rdococ: that's what you think
20:41:28 <int-e> (impossible, sadly)
20:41:36 <rdococ> int-e: so mSL is better than dc?
20:41:42 <Taneb> Conclusion: rdococ is actually a goldfish?
20:41:51 <int-e> (at least as far as I can see, dc cannot parse arbitrary input)
20:41:52 <rdococ> why would I be a goldfish?
20:42:05 <rdococ> int-e: MSL IS BETTER THAN SOMETHING?!
20:42:35 <rdococ> as I was saying, I'm testing my new murder mystery game on ##murder
20:43:15 <int-e> rdococ: to be fair, dc wasn't designed to be a scripting language
20:43:25 <rdococ> mSL wasn't either by the looks of it
20:43:34 <rdococ> it has the weirdest syntax
20:43:37 <rdococ> it's almost esoteric
20:43:44 <rdococ> heck, it is esoteric
20:45:26 <Taneb> rdococ, use Awk instead
20:46:31 <rdococ> I hope I don't give people the wrong impression by calling my murder mystery game bot murderbot

21:42:37 <b_jonas> help, fungot is making sense!
21:42:37 <fungot> b_jonas: right click and choose a simplistic implementation ( conses or vectors) you'd need 3 primitives. the word " fry" makes me nervous!!
21:43:03 <b_jonas> ais523: 8 unused values usually; or 10+12+10 bits for rgb
21:43:05 <int-e> fungot: would you prefer to be boiled?

21:43:13 <ais523> b_jonas: why does the green get more bits?

21:43:54 <ais523> right, that's what I thought it was
21:44:00 <ais523> fungot's irc style normally produces the best results
21:44:00 <fungot> ais523: the bash scripts in the language
21:44:26 <ais523> now I'm wondering what esoteric subsets of bash exist
21:44:30 <ais523> there's ddsh, at least
21:44:40 <ais523> which the author of CLC-INTERCAL has used as an esolang
21:44:57 <b_jonas> ais523: green matters more for the human eyes, that's why it gets more bits. but 8 bits for each of rgb and 8 unused bits is much more common
21:46:10 <rdococ> ...
21:46:32 <ais523> b_jonas: right, this is something I discovered during the palette tests
21:46:49 <b_jonas> ais523: one esoteric subset of bash is bash without execing anything else
21:46:52 <ais523> dark greens are easier to see than dark reds or blues at a similar brightness
21:46:59 <ais523> thus darker colours are more usable with green
21:47:05 <b_jonas> people implement stuff in that sometimes, even when it doesn't make sense
21:47:08 <hppavilion[1]> Ugh
21:47:13 <ais523> b_jonas: ddsh is basically that, except a) you can exec dd, and b) you can only use the subset that exists in sh
21:47:14 <b_jonas> (sometimes it can make sense, when forking and execing is slow)
21:47:28 <fizzie> It's strange, because the irc style's also one of those I trained using my own, very crude fixed-length n-gram model collector, instead of the VariKN toolkit I used for most of the rest.
21:47:31 <hppavilion[1]> I'm implementing a BF interpreter and compiler, and I want the standard getch()-style input because it's better than buffering
21:47:32 <rdococ> I swear my internet just stopped for a minute
21:47:52 <oerjan> rdococ: mine too, if you mean irc
21:47:55 <fizzie> On the other hand, it's also much larger than the other styles.
21:48:01 <oerjan> and it's the second time
21:48:02 <hppavilion[1]> But I also want it to be able to set the input to a file instead of the stdin
21:48:02 <rdococ> oerjan: no, everything else
21:48:13 <b_jonas> fizzie: oh, being bigger helps a lot
21:48:19 <hppavilion[1]> And if it's a file, it will work the same but read from the file
21:48:28 <rdococ> oerjan: wait, you mean it did take a whole minute for another person to say something?
21:48:35 <hppavilion[1]> But python has the stdin AS a file, so I cannot distinguish them
21:48:45 <fizzie> ^style europarl
21:48:45 <fungot> Selected style: europarl (European Parliament speeches during approx. 1996-2006)

21:48:52 <fizzie> That one's approximately the same size.
21:48:58 <rdococ> huh...?
21:49:03 <fizzie> And I like it quite a lot, although it's pretty predictable.
21:49:03 <rdococ> internet's broken, but irc is fine?
21:49:19 <fizzie> fungot: What's your take on the migrant crisis?
21:49:20 <fungot> fizzie: mr president, mrs cerdeira morterero' s report takes the same line, which caused such an uproar and upheaval that there are many, the people who suffer distress or die, and indirectly through greater transparency, even in the european union

21:51:38 <oerjan> rdococ: it was more that a lot came through at once.
21:52:20 <rdococ> oerjan: nah, what happened was that the game I was playing froze - I could still move or jump or stuff, but everyone was walking in place, then eventually, it disconnected
21:52:47 <oerjan> <rdococ> internet's broken, but irc is fine? <-- DNS trouble?
21:53:14 <rdococ> I'll use Window's terrible diagnosis thing
21:53:32 <oerjan> although that _shouldn't_ matter for an ongoing game unless it's badly written?
21:53:44 <rdococ> what do you mean?
21:54:01 <oerjan> DNS should only matter if you need to make new connections
21:54:13 <rdococ> that's interesting...
21:54:25 <rdococ> are you saying that if I disconnect from this irc server, I won't be able to reconnect?
21:54:34 <oerjan> it's possible.
21:54:37 <rdococ> that makes sense about something that happened a few years ago
21:54:52 <rdococ> chrome mentions the dns
21:54:54 <rdococ> "DNS_PROBE_FINISHED_NXDOMAIN"
21:54:59 <oerjan> it's happened to me before.
21:55:17 <rdococ> the game was multiplayer
21:55:24 <oerjan> if so, try setting your DNS to something wellknown like 8.8.8.8
21:55:33 <b_jonas> fizzie: retrain it with even more irc data! and train one from the lolcat bible
21:55:33 <rdococ> my DNS?
21:55:39 <oerjan> *DNS server
21:55:46 <rdococ> how do I do that?
21:55:53 <oerjan> that's one of google's

21:56:07 <rdococ> there are two kinds?

21:57:00 <rdococ> google doesn't work
21:57:15 <b_jonas> oh, is this the kind of problem where you have to hope you're not disconnected from irc because you wouldn't be able to disconnect?
21:57:28 <rdococ> reconnect*? if so, yes
21:57:30 <b_jonas> rdococ: turn off "Work offline" in the File menu
21:57:37 <rdococ> file menu?
21:57:41 <rdococ> in which program?
21:57:42 <b_jonas> of the browser
21:57:45 <b_jonas> firefox or similar
21:58:01 <rdococ> it's chrome, it has no file menu
21:58:12 <b_jonas> I don't know about chrome
21:58:17 <b_jonas> can't help there
21:59:22 <rdococ> indeed
21:59:26 <rdococ> it is that kind of problem
21:59:45 <rdococ> disconnected and tried to reconnect my bot
22:00:02 <rdococ> how do I set my dns
22:00:09 <rdococ> dhould I try IE?
22:00:27 <oerjan> it's not in the browser
22:00:35 <oerjan> but i'm having trouble refinding it
22:00:51 <rdococ> no, I mean, it might have a file menu
22:01:16 <fizzie> You can try opening a site by IP to verify whether it's indeed DNS trouble. Say, navigate to http://178.62.79.47/ in Chrome.
22:01:31 <rdococ> That works.
22:02:14 <fizzie> Then the 8.8.8.8 trick is likely to work, but I can't really comment on how to set it in Windows, I'm sure they've moved the setting around in every version of it.
22:02:22 <rdococ> windows 8
22:02:25 <rdococ> pls search it
22:02:36 <oerjan> i found how to display what the DNS server is, but not how to set it. i'm on W10
22:02:45 <fizzie> Well, I've got a page.
22:02:45 <rdococ> tell me how to display it
22:02:50 <fizzie> "This article will advise how to change your computer's IP address and DNS servers on Windows 8. This article applies to any version of Windows 8."
22:02:55 <fizzie> It has a lot of screenshots.
22:02:57 <rdococ> k
22:03:00 <rdococ> what do they say?
22:03:12 <fizzie> Well, they're mostly blue. There's a nice picture of a daisy as a background.
22:03:27 <rdococ> what should I type?
22:04:11 <rdococ> come on, it shouldn't take that long, and I'm worrying
22:04:12 <fizzie> The screenshots go Control Panel -> "Network and Sharing Center" -> "Change adapter settings" -> right-click on the network -> Properties -> Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCIP/IPv4) -> Properties -> "Use the following DNS server addresses".
22:05:11 <oerjan> ah that seems right
22:05:33 <oerjan> i didn't try to click on the Internet Protocol item
22:06:18 <fizzie> (Interestingly enough, the top hit for me for "windows 8 set dns server" -- the page I was quoting from -- was from the support site from the ISP I'm using. I wonder if that's just targeted ranking, or if they're just that good.)
22:06:22 <oerjan> so it works in Windows 10 too
22:07:07 <rdococ> aha

00:07:46 <hppavilion[1]> Taneb: I may have asked this before, but what strategies are used when generating brainfuck code?
00:08:42 <Taneb> hppavilion[1], you need to keep in mind your data structure is a tape, and the only loop you have is a fairly simple while loop
00:08:53 <hppavilion[1]> Taneb: OK.
00:09:12 <Taneb> Design your data structure carefully and don't be afraid to change it if it isn't working
00:10:03 <hppavilion[1]> Taneb: For a compiled-to-brainfuck language, would data markup be useful?
00:10:20 <Taneb> I don't know, that's not something I have any experience with
00:10:20 <hppavilion[1]> Basically, a way to tell it to set certain cells to values before initialization?
00:10:27 <hppavilion[1]> Taneb: Fair enough
00:13:46 <rdococ> what about a looped tape?
00:14:03 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: Been there, done that
00:14:07 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: You use a deque
00:14:10 <hppavilion[1]> > and < are roll
00:14:11 <lambdabot> Not in scope: ‘are’
00:14:11 <lambdabot> Perhaps you meant one of these:
00:14:11 <lambdabot> ‘arr’ (imported from Control.Arrow),
00:14:18 <hppavilion[1]> ' pushes a new 0
00:14:35 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: Seems like it would trivially reduce to BF, but it's actually very different
00:14:38 <rdococ> so you can add and remove stuff in tapes?
00:14:44 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: Yes?
00:14:53 <rdococ> I mean increment or decrement the value
00:14:58 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: Yes
00:15:03 -!- lleu has quit (Read error: Connection reset by peer).
00:15:10 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: + pops a value and pushes its successor, - does the same with predecessor
00:15:14 <hppavilion[1]> [ and ] are the same
00:15:14 <rdococ> what if the program was looped?
00:15:14 <j-bot> hppavilion[1]: and ] are the same
00:15:38 <hppavilion[1]> , and . are the same (usually, though you may want to make them different)
00:15:39 <rdococ> like what we were discussing about a prolog processor
00:15:48 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: Looped program? Like Fueue?
00:16:55 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: Or like this language I made which's name has slipped my mind?
00:18:23 <rdococ> prolog processor?
00:18:30 <boily> speaking of fueue, where's mroman now?
00:18:33 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: Yeah, prolog processor.
00:18:38 <hppavilion[1]> boily: Good question
00:18:48 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: You're the one who brought it up
00:19:21 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: Do you want to design a FORTH-like language?
00:20:59 <rdococ> hmm
00:21:12 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: Called FITH
00:21:14 <boily> @ask mroman hello? hello? hello?
00:21:14 <lambdabot> Consider it noted.
00:21:53 -!- atrapado has quit (Quit: Leaving).
00:21:58 <rdococ> there's one called FIFTH
00:22:04 <rdococ> it's esoteric
00:23:41 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: FITH would not be. Well, not completely.
00:24:07 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: It'd be eso- by virtue of being a FORTH, and would have optional esoteric features, but it would also be quite straightforward
00:24:27 <hppavilion[1]> In theory, it'd be suitable for a wide range of applications, from hobbyist OS dev to systems programming to space flight
00:24:33 <rdococ> k
00:24:49 <rdococ> interesting
00:24:59 <rdococ> so it'd be stack based
00:25:24 <ais523> I recently came across a language called 8th, which is apparently a commercial FORTH with big ambitions
00:25:30 <ais523> it's unclear whether anyone actually uses it
00:26:03 -!- Sprocklem has quit (Ping timeout: 240 seconds).
00:27:28 <rdococ> and it would do stuff like maths and input
00:27:52 -!- Sprocklem has joined.
00:27:56 <b_jonas> ais523: is it trying to add some safeguards to detect stuff early (possibly at compile time), like unpaired push/pop on the main stack or wrong types?
00:28:12 <ais523> b_jonas: I don't know the details
00:28:30 <ais523> nothing in the tutorial looked different from actual Forth except that it appeared to have a type system, and I suspect one that isn't checked at any point
00:28:35 <b_jonas> hmm, that reminds me,
00:28:35 <ais523> you just have to write the types correctly
00:28:55 <b_jonas> I should add that language that tries to pretend it's forth-like to the esowiki because it probably counts as an esolang
00:29:04 <b_jonas> I'll add a todo-entry
00:29:52 <HackEgo> [wiki] [[User:B jonas]] https://esolangs.org/w/index.php?diff=46743&oldid=46727 * B jonas * (+143)
00:32:19 <rdococ> hmmm
00:32:26 <rdococ> 2d stack?
00:33:03 -!- p34k has quit.
00:34:10 <rdococ> hmm
00:35:13 <rdococ> add 2 mult 3 2
00:36:22 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: 2D stack? How does that work?
00:36:59 <rdococ> not infinity 1d stacks
00:37:07 <rdococ> diagonals?
00:37:13 <rdococ> you could have horizontal stack
00:37:16 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: But a 2D stack. Explain?
00:37:17 <rdococ> or vertical stack
00:37:28 <hppavilion[1]> Oh, I think I see
00:37:29 <rdococ> hmm
00:37:37 <hppavilion[1]> You can pop from multiple places
00:37:50 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: But how do you tell it where to pop from?
00:37:57 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: Also, the analogy breaks down a bit in 2D
00:38:06 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: Because it matters what direction the stack grows in
00:38:06 <rdococ> but then you could change a stack's direction and make it a snake
00:38:13 <rdococ> hmm
00:38:22 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: I'd prefer to just use a good old deque
00:38:27 <rdococ> true
00:38:36 <rdococ> what about a branching stack?
00:38:50 <hppavilion[1]> `google spaghetti stack
00:38:58 <rdococ> add (mult 3 2) (div 2 3) would branch into two branches
00:39:02 <rdococ> mult branch and div branch
00:39:07 <hppavilion[1]> @google spaghetti stack
00:39:08 <lambdabot> https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Parent_pointer_tree
00:39:16 <rdococ> but it sounds less esoteric and more useful
00:39:20 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: That's not how FORTH works
00:39:28 <rdococ> ik
00:39:31 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: This is meant to be useful while preserving roots in esotericness
00:39:33 <HackEgo> Failed to connect to socket 2. \ \ Looking up 127.0.0.1:3128 \ Making HTTP connection to 127.0.0.1:3128 \ Sending HTTP request. \ HTTP request sent; waiting for response. \ Alert!: Unexpected network read error; connection aborted. \ Can't Access `http://google.com/search?q=%73%70%61%67%68%65%74%74%69%20%73%74%61%63%6b' \ Alert!: Unable to access
00:39:38 <zzo38> Are there any Magic: the Gathering cards which create new state-based actions?
00:39:42 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: FORTH would be 2 3 +, not + 2 3
00:40:00 <hppavilion[1]> And FORTH is better because of that
00:40:19 <hppavilion[1]> Because you can do things other than arithmetic, which still works in prefix, but is much more confusing
00:40:40 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: So the instructions I'm already thinking of are:
00:40:42 <rdococ> pls give me an example
00:40:57 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: $ or DROP makes sense in postfix, but not as much in prefix
00:41:04 <rdococ> drop?
00:41:12 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: POP a value and throw it away
00:41:24 <rdococ> example pls
00:41:38 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: 2 3 4 $ + is equal to 2 3 +
00:42:05 <hppavilion[1]> Because the 4 gets DROPed
00:42:09 <rdococ> oh
00:42:16 <hppavilion[1]> It seems useless, but it doesn't have to be a scalar like 4
00:42:29 <hppavilion[1]> It could be an expression with side-effects
00:42:36 <boily> int-e: int-ello. I seem to have begun binging QC. welp.
00:42:37 <rdococ> oh, okay
00:42:40 <rdococ> interesting
00:42:43 <hppavilion[1]> 2 3 "press any key to continue" . , $ +
00:42:54 <hppavilion[1]> That will add 2 and 3, but not until you approve of it
00:43:02 <rdococ> wow
00:43:03 <rdococ> cool
00:43:05 <rdococ> that's
00:43:06 <rdococ> wow
00:43:14 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: Want me to make a full list of instructions?
00:43:16 <rdococ> never thought of it that way
00:43:20 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: Just the basic ones
00:43:29 <rdococ> so it drops ,?
00:43:32 <rdococ> what's , do?
00:43:33 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: Yes
00:43:36 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: , is GETCH
00:43:40 <rdococ> GETCH?
00:43:55 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: , gets a single character of input (a single keypress) and PUSHes its ord() onto the stack
00:44:12 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: So , $ is a GETCH that doesn't change the stack
00:44:26 <rdococ> cool
00:44:28 <rdococ> sounds good
00:44:40 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: But $ only drops one value; if it's an instruction that creates two new values (e.g. , ,), you need two $s
00:44:43 <rdococ> so . pops and outputs the string?
00:44:55 <rdococ> that was pushed before it
00:45:15 <rdococ> so is FORTH all like this, or does it have other things?
00:45:39 -!- XorSwap has joined.
00:47:29 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: Yes, pretty much all stacks
00:47:29 <rdococ> hmm by the looks of it, it's all in that stack based no--hey, what about brainstack? stack based brainfuck!
00:47:38 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: That's been done.
00:47:41 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: Repeatedly.
00:47:42 <rdococ> wow
00:47:44 <rdococ> yeah
00:47:46 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: Please do not make a new one.
00:47:47 <rdococ> didn't sound so good
00:48:04 <rdococ> I have not made a single bf derivative in my time here
00:48:18 <rdococ> mine are not that esoteric
00:48:41 <\oren\> my brainfuck interpreter uses a stack
00:48:47 <rdococ> wow, really?
00:48:54 <boily> \oren\: eh?
00:49:03 <rdococ> what other paradigms are there?
00:49:13 <\oren\> http://www.orenwatson.be/bfim.htm
00:51:52 <rdococ> hmm
00:51:53 <rdococ> so
00:51:58 <boily> holy syntax highlighting batman! those are some saturated colours!
00:52:05 <rdococ> a stack based language which is a more esoteric version of forth
00:52:16 <rdococ> yeah, ow my eyes
00:52:23 <rdococ> infact, rip them
00:52:24 <boily> also, you use tabs. tabs are evil. four spaces!
00:52:31 <rdococ> tabs!
00:52:34 <rdococ> tabs!
00:52:46 <boily> SPACES!
00:52:54 <rdococ> tabs are sometimes 4 spaces, sometimes 8!
00:52:58 <hppavilion[1]> boily: Tabs are configurable-width
00:53:04 <rdococ> I prefer 4. 8 looks like someone stretched it into spaghetti
00:53:15 <boily> four. spaces. 0x20. four of 'em.
00:53:18 <rdococ> and 2 looks like msl aaaaaaaaaaaaaah
00:53:28 <rdococ>
00:53:31 <hppavilion[1]> boily: You can tell it how wide you want your tabs to be in spaces. So tabs allow better personal preferences
00:53:52 <rdococ> Iwillusetabsfromnowontoannoyboily
00:53:58 <rdococ> yay!
00:54:04 <rdococ> justkidding
00:54:17 <boily> and then you're going to tell me that braces go alone on their own lines.
00:54:19 <rdococ> I'mnotthatevil
00:54:22 <boily> HERETICS Y'ALL!
00:54:32 <rdococ> braces don't need to exist
00:54:37 <rdococ> lua doesn't have them
00:54:43 <rdococ> and they're filthy
00:54:45 <rdococ> dirty
00:54:47 <rdococ> unholy
00:56:53 <hppavilion[1]> Of course, I don't really care whether tabs or spaces are used; just do whatever your dev environment spits out when you hit newline
00:58:15 <zzo38> When I push newline it results in newline!
00:58:25 <rdococ> really?wow
00:58:37 <rdococ> he means
00:58:37 <rdococ> this
00:58:44 <hppavilion[1]> ais523: How would one typecheck an imperative stack-based language? Row polymorphism doesn't seem like it would help unless the language is functional.
00:59:00 <rdococ> functional FORTH?
00:59:09 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: That will be a feature, but not the core of the langauge
00:59:32 <zzo38> (However, I generally use two spaces for indent, and put the brace on the same line as if/function/while/whatever.)
00:59:52 -!- tromp has joined.
00:59:58 -!- tromp has quit (Remote host closed the connection).
01:00:15 <hppavilion[1]> boily: I will accept your "four spaces" theology if you're willing to use ​as your space
01:00:15 -!- tromp has joined.
01:00:29 <boily> hppavilion[1]: you seem to have accidentaly a word.
01:00:34 <hppavilion[1]> boily: I did not
01:00:37 <hppavilion[1]> boily: `unidecode
01:01:33 <hppavilion[1]> `unidecode use ​as
01:01:41 <HackEgo> ​[U+0075 LATIN SMALL LETTER U] [U+0073 LATIN SMALL LETTER S] [U+0065 LATIN SMALL LETTER E] [U+0020 SPACE] [U+200B ZERO WIDTH SPACE] [U+0061 LATIN SMALL LETTER A] [U+0073 LATIN SMALL LETTER S]
01:01:46 <rdococ> hppavilion[1]: declarative FORTH
01:01:58 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: That's kind of pointless
01:02:14 <rdococ> it is?
01:02:25 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: FORTH is good because it's fast and works well with the low-level system, which does /not/ go well declarative languages
01:02:34 <rdococ> declarative prologassembly?
01:02:51 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: Granted, if you can make a schema for a low-level language that works well on bare metal, I will concede
01:03:20 <rdococ> basically, the prolog processor would take data, then apply all the substitution rules in a loop
01:03:34 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: It has to work well on arbitrary, typical processors
01:03:41 <rdococ> oh
01:03:42 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: Like an intel
01:03:53 <zzo38> I think Forth is probably good for including in ROM BIOS (some old computers include BASIC), and can also be used as the built-in programming environment of a system that doesn't otherwise have one it can work good too
01:04:02 <rdococ> you mean a language, not the processor we were gonna design
01:04:14 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: Yes
01:04:22 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: We can still design a processor.
01:04:47 <rdococ> hmm
01:05:04 <rdococ> declarative languages still have some form of order to them, just not top to bottom
01:05:07 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: But if you can find a way to (abstractly) make a declarative language that works well on bare metal, I will concede and help you design implement the rest of it
01:05:10 <rdococ> e.g. church numerals
01:05:11 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: Correct
01:05:26 <rdococ> hmm
01:05:29 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: Church encoding is best to avoid in actual computing
01:05:51 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: Practically speaking, using church encoding is horribly inefficient. It's much better to just let the language access the actual computer.
01:05:53 <rdococ> hppavilion[1]: church numerals would be really slow, wouldn't support fractions
01:06:02 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: Church encoding can support fractions
01:06:10 <rdococ> it can, but it'd still be slow
01:07:21 <rdococ> hmm
01:07:23 <hppavilion[1]> (λxyz.zxy)(λsx.s(s(x)))(λsx.s(s(s(x))))
01:07:26 <rdococ> well,
01:07:33 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: Look into x86 to start
01:07:53 <rdococ> every instruction is bound to have a side effect when it's machine code
01:08:10 <rdococ> I has x64
01:08:16 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/X86#Basic_properties_of_the_architecture
01:08:23 <rdococ> but I will look
01:08:26 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: x64 is still x86
01:08:33 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: I think. It's confusing
01:08:46 <hppavilion[1]> x64 is the 64-bit variant of x86, which is 32-bit (originally 16-bit)
01:08:52 <hppavilion[1]> I think
01:10:05 <rdococ> k
01:10:11 -!- tromp has quit (Remote host closed the connection).
01:10:42 <rdococ> CISC
01:11:29 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: You are correct that at ASM levels, all instructions tend to have side effects. This is why you should start with a robust framework for allowing side effects in your BMDL (bare-metal declarative language. Feel free to rename it now)
01:11:58 <hppavilion[1]> I would recommend naming it after a bird of prey for now, or a mythical creature
01:11:58 <rdococ> k
01:12:03 <rdococ> Pheonix
01:12:08 <hppavilion[1]> You can always rename it later
01:12:12 <rdococ> both bird and mythical
01:12:17 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: I was seeing if you would choose that xD
01:12:21 <rdococ> and melts metal
01:12:27 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: Oooh, that's good
01:12:31 <hppavilion[1]> I didn't think of that
01:12:35 <rdococ> xd
01:12:56 <rdococ> hmm
01:13:16 <hppavilion[1]> rdococ: So what kind of language do you want this to be? Most declarative languages are functional, logical, or functional-logic (which is the one I know the least about, despite being literally just functional+logic)
01:13:23 <hppavilion[1]> But you can also base it off other systems
01:13:36 <rdococ> hmm
