01:36:22 <imode> my own, I use everything between two quotes as a comment.
01:36:41 <imode> but as it's a part of the source, some external "syscall" could read from program data.
01:38:08 <oerjan> in befunge you could do it too, but then you can use any piece of the program as comment as long as you don't run it.
01:38:32 <oerjan> and you can also use g to read any part of the program.
01:38:39 <imode> that's kind of why I'm starting to think about remapping " to pull double-duty.

03:39:14 <oerjan> that's what you WANT to think hth
03:39:21 <hppavilion[1]> Such as saying 'husband of a female US president' when it would make more sense to say 'husband of a US president', as the couple being heterosexual isn't actually important, and a gay couple would be the same.

04:41:48 <hppavilion[1]> [1] "Noon" is when the sun is directly above your head
04:42:17 <hppavilion[1]> [2] "Antinoon" is when it is noon at the antipode of your current location (draw a straight line through the center of the earth, come out the other side)
04:42:18 <zzo38> Unless between the tropics the sun is never directly above
04:42:37 <shachaf> high noon is 260 minutes after regular noon
04:42:56 <zzo38> But, when the sun is at "midheaven", which means at the local meridian, is the solar noon.

04:45:03 <hppavilion[1]> [3] Separate the time between two consecutive antinoons into 24 equal-length units. Noon is at the exact midpoint (generally)

13:41:24 <ais523> a fun problem I ran into with my CALESYTA entry today was related to soft hyphens
13:41:33 <ais523> I wanted to output binary data unambiguously
13:42:12 <ais523> for control codes in the 0-32 and 127 range, there are characters like ␀ you can use
13:42:49 <ais523> for 128-160, I used combining characters like ␍⃑
13:43:03 <ais523> and this makes 255 out of the 256 possible octets visible
13:43:37 <ais523> (because you can use latin-1 for the values above 160)
13:43:38 <ais523> but soft hyphen doesn't have a control picture, and isn't naturally visible

14:45:34 <b_jonas> ais523: can't you use ibm437 for that? it has practically only distinguishable characters, since they had few space and wanted to get as many different visible glyphs from it as possible. only {0x20, 0x00, 0xff} look the same, but you can replace those.
14:46:36 <b_jonas> also possibly {0xf9, 0xfa} which are a middle dot and a small middle dot
14:47:47 <b_jonas> my bitmap font actually has some mostly unambiguous pictures at the position of the ascii control and high control characters, only I almost see them because there's no way to display them in the terminal
14:49:24 <b_jonas> the soft hyphen isn't a control character though, so it does show up in the terminal with my font properly
14:49:54 <zzo38> They are different dots

16:04:03 <ais523> oh, hppavilion[1]
16:04:04 <oerjan> hppavilion[1] has all sorts of weird things.
16:04:10 <ais523> that's like starting arrays at 0.5
16:05:31 <b_jonas> ais523: isn't that an xkcd thing?
16:05:38 <oerjan> i'm pretty sure he's done that too. or at least someone did.
16:05:45 <ais523> b_jonas: not originally, although xkcd may have referenced it
16:05:50 <b_jonas> http://www.xkcd.com/1292/
16:05:59 <ais523> VHDL probably lets you start arrays at any value you like
16:06:10 <oerjan> `? scow
16:06:11 <HackEgo> Scow (S-cow) is canned meat made from cows with a lisp. Scheme is usually preferred, but Racket will be accepted in a pinch.
16:06:22 <ais523> and there are hints in the syntax that you can index them with things other than integers
16:06:29 <oerjan> `slwd scow//[.].*/./
16:06:30 <HackEgo> sed: -e expression #1, char 1: unknown command: `['
16:06:31 <b_jonas> ais523: fortran, pascal and haskell lets you start arrays at any value too.
16:06:38 <oerjan> `slwd scow//s/[.].*/./
16:06:40 <HackEgo> wisdom/scow//Scow (S-cow) is canned meat made from cows with a lisp.
16:06:58 <ais523> VHDL also lets you have arrays that are numbered backwards
16:07:08 <oerjan> hppavilion[1] sometimes doesn't understand when something ruins a joke...
16:07:11 <ais523> this means that you can ask an array for its upper and lower bounds, also for its left and right bounds
16:07:27 <zzo38> And also BASIC
16:07:36 <ais523> (an array numbered, say, 7 downto 0 will have a lower bound of 0 but a left bound of 7)
16:07:49 <oerjan> @tell hppavilion[1] your addition to `? scow ruins the joke, so i removed it.
16:07:49 <lambdabot> Consider it noted.
16:07:59 <ais523> Perl had a variable that let you globally change the lower bound of all arrays
16:08:03 <ais523> then they changed it to a compiler directive
16:08:06 <ais523> then they deprecated it
16:09:11 <b_jonas> ais523: yes, it's funny how that's happened in three completely different ways in APL and BASIC and Perl
16:09:54 <b_jonas> APL originally used to be indexed from 1, probably to pull mathematicians in more easily, but later added a global setting like in perl to change indexing to start with 0 instead, which is the sane choice
16:10:43 <b_jonas> BASIC tried to please both crowds, so DIM R(8) would create an array of 9 elements indexed from 0 to 8 inclusive, but later gained a global option to start indexing at 1
16:11:11 <b_jonas> Perl started with indexing at 0 but had the option for reasons unknown to me
16:11:14 <ais523> what about Lua and PHP, which treat arrays as special cases of hash tables?
16:11:37 <ais523> and therefore let you use completely arbitrary indexes, but typically a few special cases for arrays that are numbered in order?
16:11:46 <ais523> actually I think a PHP array is an ordered hash table (?)
16:11:51 <zzo38> You can just write something like DIM R(-3 to 15) or whatever, though
16:11:51 <b_jonas> ais523: Lua actually has the builtin operator # treat arrays as 1-based (plus library functions), plus also the implementation is optimized for 1-based arrays,
16:12:08 <zzo38> ais523: Yes it is, for some reason
16:12:09 <b_jonas> oh, and the varargs system also treatas arrays as 1-based
16:12:18 <ais523> b_jonas: that's the special case I was thinking of
16:12:26 <b_jonas> so in Lua, sadly, you're stuck with 1-based arrays very much, and it's hard to change that without some compatibillity break
16:12:38 <ais523> (#, that is)
16:12:53 <b_jonas> though at least lua isn't that much of an array-based language than perl or apl, so it matters a bit less
16:12:59 <b_jonas> GAP is the one that REALLY bothers me
16:13:07 <b_jonas> it indexes arrays from 1
16:13:25 -!- nycs has quit (Ping timeout: 260 seconds).
16:13:26 <b_jonas> and that is a huge mental barrier to me whenever I try to do anything in GAP
16:13:42 <b_jonas> like, in theory it shouldn't be that bad, you just have to subtract 1 or add 1 a few places
16:13:49 <b_jonas> but it somehow drives me crazy
16:13:54 <ais523> b_jonas: I've seen a widely used language in a particular field
16:14:03 <\oren\> clearly you've never done much in Visual Basic either
16:14:15 <b_jonas> \oren\: I did just mention BASIC above
16:14:18 <b_jonas> didn't I?
16:14:34 <zzo38> In BASIC, strings are 1-based, but arrays can be whatever based you want.
16:14:45 <ais523> in which the normal, intended way to do x[y] = z translates as eval("x" + y) = z
16:14:59 <ais523> I assume this is somehow optimized behind the scenes but it's still insane
16:15:14 <ais523> (incidentally, this trick is sometimes useful in Perl golfing)
16:15:23 <ais523> (you basically use the entire space of variable names as a hash table)
16:16:38 <\oren\> visual basic is interesting to me because it has all the same extensive libraries as C# but retains a lot of BASIC wackyness
16:17:10 <zzo38> TI-92 also uses 1-based arrays. (Also on TI-92, I have tried and if you use a fractional array index it just fails to simplify and is not an error, but specifying zero as the index is an error.)
16:17:31 <b_jonas> zzo38: yes, true, I forgot about strings
16:18:36 <b_jonas> I'm very unfamiliar with TI-92
16:19:42 <\oren\> visual basic is like C# from an alternate timeline where americans won the cold war
16:21:31 <b_jonas> zzo38: have you ever programmed wordbasic or corelscript? those are strange dialects of basic, much closer to traditional basics than visualbasic
16:22:01 <zzo38> JavaScript uses 0-based arrays and strings, but you can make up your own object for 1-based if you want to (but then is not compatible with other functions)
16:22:08 <zzo38> b_jonas: I think I may have done once
16:22:28 <b_jonas> zzo38: well sure, you can make up your own functions for anything-based arrays in lots of languages
16:22:49 -!- nycs has joined.
16:22:53 <zzo38> Yes, and you can also fake 1-based in C, but you can't do it properly.
16:25:23 <zzo38> For example you can make up a macro to make pointer arithmetic to do that, but on some computers, performing pointer arithmetic that causes the result to be out of bounds is an error.
16:26:05 <b_jonas> zzo38: yes, in C you'd need a new macro to index the array, which subtracts 1
16:26:37 <b_jonas> how does Mathematica work again? does it use 1-based arrays? it's been a while since I used it so I don't recall
16:26:40 * b_jonas checks docs
16:26:43 <zzo38> I don't know
16:27:02 <zzo38> I have never used Mathematica but I have seen several example codes, but I forget, anyways
16:28:19 <b_jonas> yes, Mathematica is 1-based, worse than that in fact, because indexing by 0 gives the head of the item (think of the head like the symbol in prolog, sort of, but way more magical than that), so if you accidentally index by 0 you could get ugly heisenbugs that are hard to discover

17:04:56 <ais523> huh, I never thought of bots thinking of Internet use in miles, but it makes sense from their viewpoints
17:05:12 <ais523> this is pretty much the setting of the Megaman Battle Network series, come to think of it
17:05:13 <b_jonas> I think it's sort of figurative

17:06:46 <b_jonas> ais523: what? for a very long time now the internet has been so complicated that people need routers to figure out where to send each packet. and I'm convinced the routers (at least some of them) work by magic.

17:28:18 <oerjan> (so i'm not longer being insecure, i guess)
17:28:55 <zzo38> IRC client I use not have the problem with wrapping because output wrapping is done only by the terminal. (It also makes input wrapping done by the terminal, but still needs to know the width of the screen in case of backspace or if other output occurs while the user is typing)
17:31:29 <FireFly> oerjan: I don't know irssi, but weechat has /window bare for those purposes. maybe irssi has something similar?

17:39:17 <Taneb> CALEYSTA?
17:39:21 <ais523> Taneb: see topic
17:39:28 <Taneb> Ooh! I forgot about that!
17:39:37 <ais523> also I now have a working syntax highlighter
17:39:44 <ais523> which means that the parser probably works too
17:39:54 <ais523> finally, I have an idea (only in my head so far) of how to write useful programs
17:40:11 <ais523> it's surprisingly difficult, you have to exploit corner cases in the spec in a nonobvious way to prevent the language being subTC in an unusual way
17:41:45 <b_jonas> oh, an esolang design contest? interesting
17:42:02 <b_jonas> let me see that
17:43:24 <ais523> they want spec + impl (maybe also IDE) + example programs + not a BF variant
17:43:41 <ais523> also a computational class analysis
17:45:00 <ais523> oh gah I just realised how hard it will be to write a quine in this langugae
17:45:03 <ais523> *language
17:45:19 <ais523> it may end up as the language with the hardest quine-to-other-common-example-program ratio
17:45:33 <b_jonas> nice!
17:45:40 <b_jonas> then it's definitely not just a brainfuck-alike
17:45:52 <b_jonas> in brainfuck-alikes it's usually easy to write a quine, or impossible
17:46:07 <ais523> I'm pretty sure it's possible, but the language has features that specifically make quining harder than normal
17:46:10 <b_jonas> (impossible if they have too limited io or very limited computational capability)
17:46:28 <b_jonas> um, what counts as normal?
17:46:41 <b_jonas> you don't mean perl-like normal, but dumb esolang-like normal, right?
17:46:44 <ais523> I gave lessons on quine construction somewhere a while back, maybe Reddit
17:47:07 <b_jonas> as in, I don't expect there to be fancy string literals with various forms of quoting and escape sequences and built-in string and regex operations
17:47:16 <ais523> by normal I mean that the difficulty of writing a quine in your language is basically equal to the difficulty of taking a universal quine, and translating it into your language
17:47:27 <b_jonas> ok
17:47:35 <ais523> and by universal quine I mean pseudocode quine, or basically the standard quine template that doesn't rely on any language-specific tricks
17:48:21 -!- LKoen has quit (Quit: “It’s only logical. First you learn to talk, then you learn to think. Too bad it’s not the other way round.”).
17:49:33 <ais523> anyway, the universal quine template doesn't take kindly to languages in which any part of the program can alter the parsing of the entire rest of the program, both backwards and forwards
17:50:14 <ais523> I ended up looking at mathematical papers in order to find algorithms for use in the parser
17:50:30 <b_jonas> nice
17:50:32 <ais523> to get it up to acceptable speed on large inputs
17:51:22 <b_jonas> Now I'm looking at the three sqlite quines I wrote
17:51:47 <zzo38> You wrote three? Which ones are they?
17:51:58 <ais523> `which sqlite3
17:51:59 <HackEgo> ​/usr/bin/sqlite3
17:52:03 <ais523> ooh!
17:52:08 <b_jonas> zzo38: they're on the mailing list near 2014-03-08
17:52:14 <ais523> `` echo select 1 | sqlite3
17:52:16 <HackEgo> Error: incomplete SQL: select 1
17:52:26 <ais523> wait, I have to select it from something?
17:52:34 <ais523> or maybe add a semicolon or the like?
17:52:39 <ais523> `` echo 'select 1;' | sqlite3
17:52:40 <HackEgo> 1
17:52:45 <ais523> ah, semicolon is all it needed
17:53:06 <b_jonas> sqlite quine => http://dpaste.com/0S0XKSE
17:53:17 <ais523> now I'm interested in how you break linearity
17:53:21 <ais523> that's the only hard part I see here
17:53:30 <ais523> (err, affinity, not linearity; clearly deleting information is easy)
17:53:34 <b_jonas> um, what do you mean by linearity in this case?
17:53:36 <ais523> oh, you created a table
17:53:42 <ais523> b_jonas: the ability to use a value more than once
17:53:44 <b_jonas> only in the first one
17:54:03 <b_jonas> in the third one I use subselect to assign something to variables, and used the variable more than once in the outer select
17:54:36 <ais523> I think you need to break linearity to use a universal quine construction, thus quining isn't /necessarily/ possible in a linear language
17:54:38 <b_jonas> in the second one I use the string function replace that can find and replace more than one instance of a substring
17:54:52 <ais523> (but then, linear languages tend to be sub-TC unless they have a monad or the like that lets you break linearity in a controlled fashion)
17:55:23 <b_jonas> the first one is a vanilla universal quine of the kind I like, using a list of values instead of variables, only it gets somewhat hairy because it isn't easy to create and subscript a list in sqlite3,
17:55:34 <b_jonas> and also it's hard to concatenate a list of strings
17:56:47 -!- boily has quit (Quit: ENGINEERED CHICKEN).

17:56:56 <zzo38> Now the GURPS points calculation program I made in JavaScript is supports colours!
17:57:02 <ais523> may be an escaping problem
17:57:05 <ais523> SQL is a pain to sel-escape
17:57:13 <ais523> *shell-escape
17:57:16 <zzo38> You need a newer version of SQLite
17:57:21 <ais523> although I don't think it is in this case

17:58:23 <ais523> interesting question: assuming you don't care about bracket matching issues, do all languages with an Underload interpreter also have a quine?
18:00:11 <oerjan> <ais523> I think you need to break linearity to use a universal quine <-- this reminds me of http://www.scottaaronson.com/blog/?p=2903#comment-1425822
18:00:14 <oerjan> construction, thus quining isn't /necessarily/ possible in a
18:00:16 <oerjan> linear language
18:00:21 <oerjan> of course it broke again.
18:00:29 <oerjan> this is going to be awful.
18:00:30 <ais523> wait, how does that even break?
18:00:38 <b_jonas> ais523: I think so, at least if the source of the underload program can be stored in some sane encoding in the program (not necessarily as a literal without escaping, but any sane format)
18:00:39 <ais523> the bit that broke wasn't even copy-pasted
18:00:58 <ais523> b_jonas: oh, good point, you could have a language where the /only/ program is an Underload interp
18:01:21 <ais523> oerjan: huh, I know the author of that comment
18:01:22 <oerjan> ais523: i only paste once i've written the rest, since that generally posts the line too
18:01:31 <b_jonas> but this is more or less true to any sane inner language, not only to underload
18:01:35 <ais523> he used to work a couple of offices away from mine
18:03:16 <b_jonas> from that esolang design contest, "Can you design a language inspired by the water cycle and the movement of clouds?" -- is that trying to be a reference to some existing esolang (esolang in the broad sense, as always)?
18:03:29 <int-e> what, precisely, would constitute a quine (for example, the coding systems for the program itself and for its output might be different; it may also be impossible to construct arbitrary UL programs in the target language (the extreme example is a "language" that only allows the empty program, which is an interpreter that reads an UL program and then executes it...))
18:03:36 <int-e> ?
18:04:03 <ais523> b_jonas: probably not; it's reminiscent of Homespring but different
18:04:27 <ais523> (I remember someone randomly posting some Homespring on Reddit once; that was a weird experience)
18:04:55 <ais523> int-e: I guess I'm assuming some sort of basic "no cheating" rules
18:05:21 <ais523> in which you can modify the Underload interpreter to take fixed input (but that ends up as part of the program), and there aren't encoding issues (including with Underload's hate of mismatched parens)
18:05:42 <b_jonas> "all commands are based on a metaphor of salmon travelling upriver"
18:06:02 <ais523> wait, have you not seen Homespring before?
18:06:18 <ais523> you really should, it's probably the best thematic esolang there is
18:06:22 <b_jonas> I haven't seen it before
18:06:24 <ais523> even if it does have a few issues
18:06:29 <b_jonas> WHAT? better than chef?
18:06:33 <ais523> definitely
18:06:42 <ais523> chef is mostly just a syntax encoding
18:06:51 <b_jonas> well sure
18:06:57 <b_jonas> that's why it's thematic
18:07:13 <ais523> homespring is interesting because it /isn't/ just a syntax encoding
18:08:16 <b_jonas> for something that's not thematic and also not just a syntax encoding, I think ICFP 2006 has one or two such mini-languages featured
18:08:21 <b_jonas> um
18:08:25 <b_jonas> s/not thematic/thematic/
18:08:26 <oerjan> ais523> interesting question: assuming you don't care about bracket matching issues, do all languages with an Underload interpreter also have a quine? <-- not necessarily if you cannot give that interpreter constructed input...
18:08:59 <ais523> oerjan: I noticed that loophole and closed it in a later comment
18:09:10 <ais523> <ais523> in which you can modify the Underload interpreter to take fixed input (but that ends up as part of the program), and there aren't encoding issues (including with Underload's hate of mismatched parens)
18:09:27 <b_jonas> it's enough if you can give underload a fixed input
18:09:41 <b_jonas> so you just treat the language as underload with different syntax
18:10:41 <b_jonas> I'll have to look at homespring then

18:14:04 <lambdabot> Unknown command, try @list
18:14:05 <ais523> the website implies that it may happen again later but isn't certain on the issue
18:14:07 <izalove> or string@()
18:14:11 <b_jonas> thanks
18:14:17 <ais523> right now they aren't even sure whether there's going to be a prize or not
18:14:23 <ais523> so I guess it depends on how successful the contest is
18:14:33 <izalove> which means you can use this command safely and it won't run it if file doesn't exist cmd @(file)
18:14:38 <b_jonas> who cares if there's a prize?
18:14:49 <izalove> and this thing can be adapted to numeric globs
18:14:52 <b_jonas> it's esolang creation, the reward is in doing the thing
18:14:55 <ais523> b_jonas: I don't really mind
18:14:59 <ais523> I'd have create the esolang anyway
18:15:03 <izalove> shopt -s nullglob; echo @(file{12..345})
18:15:06 <b_jonas> if I wanted a prize, I'd deal with non-eso langs
18:15:07 <ais523> but the contest inspires me to make it better
18:15:08 <izalove> how cool is that
18:15:16 <izalove> guys stop what you're doing
18:15:18 <izalove> this is revolutionary
18:15:21 <b_jonas> ais523: exactly, the contest and the publicity that comes with it
18:15:25 <izalove> why don't you understand
18:15:38 <b_jonas> izalove: what? that can't even work
18:15:47 <b_jonas> really?
18:15:56 <izalove> why can't it work?
18:16:01 <izalove> of course it works
18:16:31 <b_jonas> izalove: the bracket thing expands to separate arguments, so it blows up ... ah! then the @() makes the argument disappear if there's no such file?
18:16:34 <b_jonas> brilliant
18:16:42 <izalove> ikr
18:17:09 <izalove> that's about the most clever piece of bash code i've ever written
18:17:12 <b_jonas> of course, it won't work if you do it with like @(P{1000000..9999999}.JPG) but still useful
18:17:15 <b_jonas> thanks for teaching that

18:22:10 <b_jonas> I'm reading the rules for that contest. It says I have to agree all the material for the esolang can be published on their website, but it doesn't say that the winner will be announced on the website. They can keep the winner in secret,
18:22:25 <b_jonas> and then multiple people can try to claim that the organizers told them they won.
18:22:40 <b_jonas> They will probably not do that though.
18:23:10 <int-e> they even reserve the right to not declare a winner at all
18:23:29 <int-e> (or did, when I read their terms ... a week or two ago)
18:23:35 <b_jonas> int-e: well sure, that makes sense
18:23:49 <b_jonas> if they don't receive any good submissions, then they shouldn't declare a winner
18:23:58 <b_jonas> and at this point they can't be sure they'll receive any

21:37:09 * lynn . o O («coi ly.» could be directed at me, too)
21:37:35 <quintopia> yeah. i suppose. if you put the space there.
21:37:46 <quintopia> but i wouldn't have thought to truncate lynn to ly
21:37:57 <boily> quinthellopia!
21:38:04 <quintopia> hows things?
21:38:12 * boily woggles at lynn. «hellynn!»
21:38:30 <boily> I'm invaded by weird people from Québec City.
21:38:31 <lynn> It's a Lojban joke (I guess since I last talked in here I became the kind of person who makes Lojban jokes)
21:39:23 <wob_jonas> lynn: nah, that wouldn't work, that would look like you're trying to greet boily, not you
21:39:58 <lynn> Well that's precisely the other ½ of this joke!
21:39:59 <wob_jonas> I mean, yeah, if you think more about it ly. would tell it refers to you, but at the surface level
21:40:20 <quintopia> lynn: it was a original a porthello of Lojban "coi" and "boily"
21:40:32 <lynn> "porthello" omg
21:40:52 <wob_jonas> yeah... that's a strange word, I didn't understand it at first
21:41:02 <int-e> . o O ( lynn should give their thoughts a bit more breathing space )
21:41:51 <int-e> portmondieu
21:42:09 <quintopia> boily: so did beer come out unscathed?
21:42:17 * lynn . o O I('m bad at thought)s
21:43:06 <int-e> lynn: they must be seeping out of your ears by now...

21:44:00 * lynn . o O ( ) I was gonna say something but it escaped my mind

21:49:34 <boily> quintopia: there was a sudden schedule shift. I was supposed to wednesday the beer, going to grab them now.

21:55:27 <wob_jonas> lynn: well ok, if it's a deliberate joke so obscure that most people will miss it, then I guess it'd be appropriate on #esoteric

21:56:44 <wob_jonas> though of course the problem is that you don't get to choose how other people greet you, they do
21:57:22 <wob_jonas> few people greet me as wob_jó naspot for example

21:57:56 <wob_jonas> admittedly b_hellonas is shorter
21:58:22 <wob_jonas> um
21:58:28 <wob_jonas> wob_hellonas to compare it fairly

23:57:37 <\oren\> ARGH
23:58:02 <\oren\> no matter how many times i kill ants, or how I kill them, they come back
23:58:58 <\oren\> I've tried squishing them, drowning them, boiling them, burning them, disolving them, and poisoning them
23:59:47 <\oren\> I thought the ants' hive mind would figure out that if they come here they die
