05:55:34 <alercah> no conditionals
05:55:40 <shachaf> That certainly includes conditionals.
05:55:54 <alercah> no it doesn't, it includes pattern matching!
05:56:00 <quintopia> also, i don't think haskell includes a hth command
05:56:15 <shachaf> It includes pattern matching on booleans.
05:56:21 <shachaf> That's as conditional as one can hope.

07:02:51 <hppavilion[1]> Gut instinct says it will be, but I'm not sure
07:03:13 <hppavilion[1]> Wait, but there's only 1 case in which you can get x, and its probability is 1/x
07:04:33 <hppavilion[1]> There are 2 cases where you can get x-1, one with probability 1/x (occurring 1/x times) and the other probability 1/(x-1) (occurring 1/x times- all inner randoms are equal, so I think they factor out)
07:05:39 <hppavilion[1]> So the total probability of x-1 is 1/x+1/(x-1) = (x-1)/(x^2-x) + x/(x^2-x) = (2x-1)/(x^2-1)

08:41:25 <myname> i like it
08:41:55 <myname> but for the 26th root, maybe we need a bigger starting value?
08:42:11 <myname> wait, no
08:45:48 <hppavilion[1]> In Hertz on the e:26 scale, my name is 725.44 440.0 913.74 575.94 440.0 725.44 913.74 846.09 753.88 725.44 725.44 513.18 879.26

08:47:55 <hppavilion[1]> myname: Or do you want one you can play?
08:48:20 <hppavilion[1]> (music is written in an ad hoc notation I hacked together in .txt files)
08:48:21 <myname> proposal: doubling a letter means extending how long you play, for the same note more than once you seperate using '
08:49:13 <hppavilion[1]> myname: In the existing format, you write n:k to play a note n for k beats, and dropping ":k" defaults to k=4
08:49:23 <hppavilion[1]> Oh, and ~ is code for "no note" (so rest)
08:49:57 <myname> well okay, it does make playing text a bit more boring though
08:50:05 <myname> but fine for me
08:50:48 <hppavilion[1]> And you can write note names in any way you want (as defined by the Scale object being used, which for the moment is hard-coded)
08:51:23 <hppavilion[1]> n_p (note n, value p) means to take n and scale it up by p <whatever-your-separation-is>

08:52:25 <hppavilion[1]> So on an e-cycle scale where a=base=440 Hz, a_3 = (440*e^3) Hz (which is probably beyond typical human hearing, but still in range)
08:52:59 <hppavilion[1]> myname: Oh, for playing text you have to get creative. For the moment, I just write the name as a series of notes and play it directly.

08:54:34 <hppavilion[1]> oerjan: Yes, but you don't usually hear anything in that range
08:54:47 <hppavilion[1]> Oh, and finally, if you write H<float> (instead of n or n_p), it plays that float value literally
08:54:53 <hppavilion[1]> (but this is discouraged)
08:55:55 <hppavilion[1]> Chords are not yet supported

08:57:49 <oerjan> hm that's pretty close to 2/3 of an ordinary half-note
08:57:59 <oerjan> you might actually be able to play nicely

09:05:54 <hppavilion[1]> Taneb: That's relative pitch I thought?

09:06:28 <Taneb> Oh, I am muddled
09:06:39 <hppavilion[1]> Relative pitch is when you get two notes a and b, they tell you 'a is a C' and you can say what b is
09:06:43 <Taneb> It's still going to sound annoyingly dissonant to people with sensitive hearing
09:06:49 <hppavilion[1]> Yes

22:22:32 <hppavilion[1]> ais523: Also, bear in mind that no matter what brackets you use, a v:c notation (optimally in conjunction with v v v ... [c]) is a more friendly notation if the multiplicities are any larger than 4 (so you have to actually count), large in general (so you spend 5 pages on 2s), or if you want to create multiplicity from a non-constant (e.g. saying that n^2 has factorization {val v: 2*(mul v) | v in fact(n)})
22:23:29 <wob_jonas> shouldn't bag brackets be something like c[ ... ] because the c is the handle of the bag?

22:25:22 <hppavilion[1]> But on the other hand, you could argue that a set is a bag where mul(v) = 0 or mul(v) = 1
22:25:43 <wob_jonas> really, just use c[ ... ]
22:25:50 <hppavilion[1]> wob_jonas: Wat?
22:25:57 <hppavilion[1]> wob_jonas: Is c count?
22:26:15 <wob_jonas> hppavilion[1]: the c should be moved closer to the [ so they touch. it's the handle of the bag.
22:26:38 <hppavilion[1]> wob_jonas: ...that's pretty clever
22:27:22 <hppavilion[1]> Bags generalize the sets the same way rationals generalize integers, so why write it differently? If you only want sets, say "s in \bb{St}"
22:27:45 <hppavilion[1]> (Where St is the set of all sets, but isn't *really* because that leads to a contradiction pretty fast)
22:28:31 <hppavilion[1]> wob_jonas: I kind of want to make it symmetrical though. And to make the brackets curved like parentheses so it still has an analogy to {}
22:29:44 <wob_jonas> wob_jonas: if you want it symmetric, then use a bag with two handles, like c[ ... ]ɔ
22:29:48 <hppavilion[1]> I'm thinking a nice, fancymath looking notation would be a parenthesis that has a small break at the midline with a handle curving around connecting on opposite sides of the break (far enough past that there's an overhang after the handle connects but before the break)
22:29:52 <hppavilion[1]> wob_jonas: Yes, of course
22:30:15 <hppavilion[1]> Which is a shit explanation. I'll make an image.

22:35:55 <wob_jonas> `slashlearn flu shot/flu shots are usually available from some time in the first half of November
22:35:58 <HackEgo> Learned 'flu shot': flu shots are usually available from some time in the first half of November
22:36:18 <wob_jonas> so I don't have to look it up next year when to start asking the pharmacies whether they have it yet
22:36:31 <hppavilion[1]> wob_jonas: Flu's really bad this year
22:36:46 <hppavilion[1]> wob_jonas: They apparently already have one for it
22:37:02 <wob_jonas> nah, it will be really bad in January
22:37:10 <wob_jonas> that's why the flu shot is available before that time
22:40:06 <hppavilion[1]> "verbalize" is a sad word
22:40:25 <hppavilion[1]> wob_jonas: Oh? How do they know it'll be bad in January?
22:40:39 <wob_jonas> hpp: it's bad in January and February every year
22:40:42 <wob_jonas> it's seasonal
22:41:08 <hppavilion[1]> Oh, do you mean that the current strain of the flu's properties will add up to very badness in January weather?
22:41:16 -!- augur has joined.
22:42:20 <wob_jonas> hpp: not really the properties, it's that in January and February, many other people will have the flu, so it will be too easy to catch the flu yourself, unless you are vaccinated, in which case it's not so easy
22:46:11 <hppavilion[1]> wob_jonas: Yes
22:47:58 <hppavilion[1]> wob_jonas: But my father works in a hospital laboratory (where they handle bloodwork and urine analysis (which you just pronounce "urinalysis" or you get funny looks, appparently)), and he said (according to my mother) that the flu is particularly nasty this year

23:20:38 <\oren\> whyyyyyyyyyyy
23:21:13 -!- copumpkin has joined.
23:22:30 <\oren\> why can't people just throw actual exceptions and not c strings!
23:23:08 <\oren\> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E4Ptc3X8WiA
23:23:11 <ais523> I remember that back when I was learning C++
23:23:18 <ais523> I threw an integer just to see what would happen
23:23:41 <ais523> hmm, what's your opinion on Java's rule of only allowing things to be thrown if they inherit from Throwable?
23:23:53 <wob_jonas> well, there's like three reasons why a throw can call terminate: uncaught exception, exception thrown out of a noexcept function, exception thrown during unrolling.
23:24:38 -!- copumpkin has quit (Client Quit).
23:24:45 <ais523> huh, I didn't even think of the exception thrown during unrolling case
23:24:51 <\oren\> right but this message doesn't tell me what the char * was, where it was thrown from, or literally anything whatsoever
23:24:55 <ais523> does that end the program or just discard the first exception?
23:25:51 <wob_jonas> ais523: it calls terminate
23:26:15 <wob_jonas> you can install a terminate handler that does something, but you can't return from that handler
23:26:35 <wob_jonas> and actually there's more than three ways
23:26:43 -!- MoALTz has quit (Read error: Connection reset by peer).
23:26:45 <wob_jonas> http://en.cppreference.com/w/cpp/error/terminate lists all of the ways
23:26:48 <ais523> can you throw out of terminate?
23:26:56 <ais523> longjmp-style?
23:27:22 <wob_jonas> ais523: probably no. I think the function calling the terminate handler is noexcept or something
23:27:34 -!- MoALTz has joined.
23:27:43 <ais523> what about using an actual longjmp? I imagine that'd make the C++ standards weep in pain
23:28:54 <wob_jonas> ais523: I'm not sure of the rules, but basically terminate is called in cases when the normal state of the program is screwed up so much that you can't continue it, so even if you could longjmp back to the normal stack, you would get undefined behavior
23:29:57 <wob_jonas> I haven't actually tried to understand the rules of what a custom terminate handler is allowed to do, because at that point you're screwed anyway so the default terminate handler which just aborts is always the right one
23:30:35 <wob_jonas> I don't even know why they have a new function for it instead of just calling abort rightaway
23:31:19 <wob_jonas> (abort can still be handled with a signal handler, but obviously you're not allowed to do much from there either)
23:31:51 <olsner> \oren\: reminds me of icecc (the distributed compile thing) which used 'int' for all exceptions
23:32:24 <olsner> they recently switched to exceptions with actual messages though
23:33:02 <fizzie> My former university's speech recognition system threw around char *s, I think.
23:33:30 <ais523> I wrote a Java program which throws an IntegerException at one point
23:33:32 <fizzie> No, actually they throw std::string's.
23:33:35 <ais523> which is just an Exception with an int field
23:33:40 <fizzie> I wonder if that's changed recently.
23:33:49 <ais523> but it's meant as a fairly literal translation from C, and that's how I translated a setjmp/longjmp pair
23:34:54 <fizzie> Seems to have been std::string always.
23:35:16 <ais523> can terminate stringify a std::string?
23:35:27 <ais523> I guess not, there's no consistent way to stringify things in C++
23:35:31 -!- moony has joined.
23:35:35 <moony> moo
23:35:37 <ais523> and you can't locate stringification functions another way because a char * is not necessarily a string
23:36:06 <boily> mhelloon.
23:36:21 <fizzie> Also there's a number of cases of throw str::fmt(128, "blah blah: %d", some_integer); where namespace str { std::string fmt(size_t size, const char *fmt, ...); }
23:36:51 <ais523> is anything catching these strings? and if so, does it just show them to the user?
23:36:54 <wob_jonas> Who needs error handling? I just call abort() for any error.
23:37:15 <ais523> incidentally, in Perl 5, throwing strings seems to be idiomatic
23:37:16 <fizzie> ais523: Yes and yes, though I only looked at actual command-line programs.
23:37:27 <ais523> some of the built-in functions do it
23:37:46 <ais523> wob_jonas: exit() is normally better if there's any possibility that it's user error rather than an internal logic error
23:37:57 <ais523> abort() is more like NetHack's panic()
23:38:10 <moony> helloily
23:40:00 <wob_jonas> ais523: I usually print an error message before aborting
23:43:23 <ais523> wob_jonas: well abort() dumps core and can lead to a bunch of internal debug information being dumped to the screen
