00:04:10 <shachaf> there's an article about Taneb?
00:04:14 <hppavilion[1]> Oh, is it Tanebirthday's- wait, nickchange. So probably
00:04:31 <ais523> shachaf: well he's invented so many important things, why wouldn't there be?
00:04:34 <hppavilion[1]> Tanebirthday: Happy assemblyday!
00:04:59 <shachaf> What important things did Taneb invent?
00:05:34 <ais523> `? Tanebventions
00:05:36 <Tanebirthday> hppavilion[1], third of November Greenwich Mean Time, every year since 1994
00:05:40 <HackEgo> Tanebventions include automatic squirrel feeders, necessity, Go, submarine jousting, Fueue, the universe, special relativity, metar, weetoflakes, sand, dragons, persistence, the BBC, _46bit, progress, sanity, the Oxford comma, and this sentence. See also tanebventions: math. He never invents anything involving sex.
00:05:47 <ais523> the universe is fairly important
00:06:24 <oerjan> Tanebirthday: ooh happy birthday
00:06:25 <Phantom_Hoover> and involves rather a lot of sex, i believe
00:06:48 <oerjan> shachaf: no, about complex planes, which should contain a definition of Argand diagram hth
00:07:34 <shachaf> Phantom_Hoover: The universe is indiscreet, too.
00:07:52 <shachaf> citation: http://citeseerx.ist.psu.edu/viewdoc/summary?doi=
00:07:58 <oerjan> Phantom_Hoover: it was probably added after he invented it by some sneaky marketing department
00:08:03 <hppavilion[1]> Phantom_Hoover: Yes, but sex makes up less than 12 ppb, so it's within acceptable bounds
00:08:15 <hppavilion[1]> oerjan: Ah, or that
00:08:22 <ais523> now I'm wondering why you'd want to market the universe and what the marketing slogan would be

00:09:12 <hppavilion[1]> ais523: You need a lot of boilerplate to be able to say "let there be light" from the get-go, rather than having to define what light is, then what a photon is, then what a particle is, then trying to explain "stuff"
00:09:28 <Phantom_Hoover> `? tanebventions: math

00:09:33 <hppavilion[1]> ais523: So the universe comes with a lot of features pre-assembled

00:12:47 <ais523> hppavilion[1]: "maths" is a contraction of "math[ematic]s"; "math" would therefore be a contraction of "mathematic", which is not a real word
00:12:49 <Phantom_Hoover> ah well
00:12:54 <hppavilion[1]> ais523: YET
00:12:55 <ais523> we don't use "math" just like we don't use "mathematic"
00:12:57 <oerjan> <Phantom_Hoover> should that not be 'maths' <-- this way you can look it up with both terms
00:13:02 -!- Lord_of_Life has quit (Excess Flood).
00:13:17 <Tanebirthday> hppavilion[1], I never say "math" except when I'm being silly and disparaging someone for specialising too much
00:13:20 <Phantom_Hoover> someone sed 'math' to 'maths' in the entry then
00:13:29 <hppavilion[1]> Phantom_Hoover: Oh, right, searching for a thing with -s at the end also searches for one without

00:13:32 <Phantom_Hoover> i'd do it myself but shachaf would doubtless complain

See also tanebventions: maths. He never invents anything involving sex.
00:13:54 <shachaf> That's quite legitimate.
00:14:24 <hppavilion[1]> shachaf: Um, if that were actually mathsy, you would now have "See also tanebventions: mathssssssssss..."
00:14:34 <hppavilion[1]> (Don't question it. I know it's wrong.)
00:14:40 <hppavilion[1]> (-ish)
00:14:48 <shachaf> ais523: In my usage, e.g. algebra is a math, and topology is a math. If you're studying maths, you're probably studying more than one math.
00:15:06 <hppavilion[1]> Hm, could Taneb have invented the f-word? On one hand, it often means sex, but on the other, it also means other stuff a LOT of the time, and it's a very versatile word
00:15:11 <ais523> now I'm wondering what the lowest number of substitutions is necessary for Thue to be Turing-complete / curly-L-complete
00:15:32 <ais523> shachaf: so "mathematic" = "field of mathematics"?
00:15:42 <Tanebirthday> shachaf, I can get behind that
00:15:42 <ais523> that isn't entirely illogical, although it also doesn't fit with UK usage
00:16:09 <Tanebirthday> Then again, I pronounce "finite" such that it rhymes with "infinite" and "definite"
00:16:42 -!- Lord_of_Life has joined.
00:17:03 <shachaf> ais523: I guess smaller mathematical things could be maths as well.
00:17:08 <shachaf> Is a theorem a math?
00:17:29 <hppavilion[1]> It can be a noun, a verb, an adjective, an adverb, an exclamation (of course). It can probably also be a pronoun, and I'dn't be surprised if it was a perfectly valid preposition, conjunction, article, determiner, and numeral as well.
00:17:37 <Tanebirthday> shachaf, is non-commutative topology, for example
00:17:52 <Tanebirthday> shachaf, or algebraic geometry
00:18:47 <shachaf> Are D-modules a math?
00:18:52 <Tanebirthday> I don't think so
00:18:55 <Tanebirthday> They are many maths
00:18:56 <shachaf> Or is each D-module a math, so D-modules are maths?
00:19:25 <hppavilion[1]> (And proverb and proadjective (projective?) and prodeterminer and postposition (and adposition if adposition \ (preposition U postpostion) != {}) and proprepo...)
00:19:38 <shachaf> The main goal of my usage is to be incompatible with both US and UK usage, and therefore be neutral.
00:19:38 <Tanebirthday> I think the study of D-modules is a math
00:19:48 <Tanebirthday> shachaf, how contrarian!
00:20:07 <shachaf> Phantom_Hoover: Sorry, that was more hostile than it needed to be.
00:20:51 <shachaf> I was in the middle of writing out an explanation for the way it was, which you didn't know. But it made it frustrating that you were making changes while I was doing it.
00:21:14 <hppavilion[1]> I just learned yon and yonder were like "this" and "that". I am now sad.
00:21:34 <shachaf> But I don't know why people say say "math" is an abbreviation for "mathematic".
00:21:40 <shachaf> "mathematic" isn't a word as far as I know.
00:21:51 <hppavilion[1]> Though "yon/yonder" was probably historically "þon/þonder", modernly "thon/thonder"
00:21:54 <shachaf> In US usage it's an abbreviation for "mathematics", which is not plural, by the way.
00:22:28 <hppavilion[1]> shachaf: In US (aka "real") english, mathematics is dual. hth.
00:23:31 <hppavilion[1]> (Its members are (1) taxes and (2) that stuff weirdos do)
00:24:53 <Tanebirthday> shachaf, "mathematic" is in the OED

01:14:02 <oerjan> hm does Girl Genius count, with the jägers and Krosp
01:14:22 <FireFly> I don't think that counts as "furry"
01:14:33 <oerjan> why not?
01:14:34 <FireFly> more than "humanoid but non-human characters"
01:14:40 <oerjan> well maybe
01:14:54 * oerjan isn't sure of the difference
01:15:23 <oerjan> they're canonically modified humans btw
01:15:32 <oerjan> (not Krosp)

01:23:21 <fizzie> Today, someone thought my Befunge shirt was Perl. Can you imagine?
01:23:37 <oerjan> shocking
01:23:41 -!- olsner has joined.
01:23:50 <fizzie> Not that a Befunge/Perl polyglot would probably be particularly difficult to do.
01:23:55 <oerjan> how dare they imply befunge is unreadable
01:24:18 <fizzie> Yes, it's clearly a slight towards at least one of the languages.
01:24:20 <ais523> fizzie: yes, that's a trivial combination
01:24:53 <fizzie> An INTERCAL fan was also present.
01:24:58 <ais523> a fun question is to consider what the first non-whitespace character would be in a maximum-number-of-languages polyglot
01:25:01 <ais523> I'm guessing # but not sure
01:25:10 <fizzie> (I don't know if they've done anything notable with it, but they mentioned it as their favourite esolang.)
01:25:38 <oerjan> hm increased polyglot challenge: make a polyglot where no character ignored in one language is used in the other
01:27:40 <ais523> what's the definition of "ignored" here?
01:27:49 <ais523> polyglots often place the code for one language inside a string literal in the other
01:27:55 <oerjan> that's the hard part i guess
01:27:58 <ais523> and then don't do anything very interesting with the string
01:28:11 <ais523> but you could, say, write a loop that checksums it or the like, if you want the content to matter
01:28:14 <shachaf> you need a linear type system for each language hth
01:29:12 <ais523> relevant, surely?
01:29:17 <ais523> or are you banning copying data too?
01:29:21 -!- enoua5 has joined.
01:29:34 <enoua5> Hello!
01:29:37 <oerjan> oh right checksums...
01:29:49 <oerjan> this gets really tricky to define then.
01:30:03 <FireFly> just use the sum modulo 2
01:30:27 <FireFly> but yeah, sounds tricky
01:30:37 <ais523> hi enoua5
01:31:03 <enoua5> *waves*
01:31:15 <ais523> oerjan: based on my thoughts about videogame polyglots, I think it'd be most interesing if the two programs did the same thing using the same algorithm
01:31:28 <ais523> and the same parts of the algorithm were implemented by the same part of the code
01:31:31 <oerjan> `relcome enoua5
01:31:34 <HackEgo> enoua5: Welcome to the international hub for esoteric programming language design and deployment! For more information, check out our wiki: <http://esolangs.org/>. (For the other kind of esoterica, try #esoteric on EFnet or DALnet.)
01:32:27 <enoua5> I just uploaded an esolang I created, if anyone wants to look at that!
01:32:50 <ais523> I was looking at it already
01:33:00 <ais523> my first thought was "oh wow, this might actually be interesting"
01:33:11 <ais523> (a lot of new users just do trivial/pointless brainfuck derivatives)
01:33:43 <enoua5> Really? Thanks!
01:34:40 <ais523> it's TC
01:35:22 <enoua5> tc?
01:35:30 <ais523> actually if you start with a couple of zero bits in storage (I think you need at least two), it's TC with just production and storage, not needing the other rooms
01:35:34 <ais523> TC = Turing complete
01:35:54 <ais523> it's a computational power class, it basically expresses how good the language is at emulating other languages
01:35:55 <enoua5> oh, yes!
01:36:11 <ais523> languages in the same class can emulate each other, and languages can also emulate langauges in lower classes
01:36:30 <shachaf> I think a lot of people know what Turing completeness is who might not know the abbreviation "TC".
01:36:37 <ais523> yes, I know
01:36:48 <ais523> I just got a little carried away and decided to define Turing completeness anyway
01:37:13 <enoua5> so, what do you mean by having the couple in storage?
01:37:29 <ais523> like, your storage spaces start empty, right?
01:37:33 <enoua5> yes.
01:37:45 <enoua5> how would this replace some rooms?
01:37:46 <ais523> if I start with a zero bit on one of them (actually one is enough because you can change what the production is producing)
01:38:00 <ais523> then that gives enough power just in production and storage to do any computation
01:38:29 <ais523> the idea is that you can use the storage space to implement a Minsky machine
01:38:56 <ais523> two storage spaces for the two counters you need (you put a 0 at the bottom and 1s above it)
01:39:09 <ais523> and one as a bitbucket for storing unwanted bits
01:39:29 <enoua5> *looks that up* oh, wow! yeah, there a few things i added just to be a little nicer
01:39:31 <ais523> (you could also drop the unwanted bits into production, I guess, so long as you kept a known bit around to set it back to the value you wanted)
01:39:47 <ais523> your extra tools will make the language much more usable
01:39:54 <ais523> there's a tradeoff between being usable and having a minimum of commands
01:40:05 <ais523> btw, you might want to put your language in categories so that people will see it
01:40:10 <ais523> http://esolangs.org/wiki/Esolang:Categorization
01:40:20 <ais523> and edit it onto the language list
01:40:34 <ais523> if a language is on an unlinked page like that, it has a tendency to get lost and forgotten about
01:41:03 <enoua5> i put it onto the list already, i'll go look at catagories

01:53:28 <ais523> : is an escape character in MediaWiki
01:53:45 <ais523> so [[Category:Languages]] uses the Languages category, whereas [[:Category:Languages]] merely mentions it (in this case, a link)
01:53:58 <ais523> we don't want Esolang:Categorization to be in the categories itself, so we escape
01:54:10 <ais523> but on language pages we do want them to be in the category normally
01:54:54 <enoua5> Ah, ok, i see. that makes sense.
01:55:29 <enoua5> Thanks for your help! I hope Factory will do good here.
01:55:36 <enoua5> I've got to go
01:55:52 <ais523> my guess is nothing much will happen in a while, then someone will use it on a "guess the language" puzzle on PPCG
01:55:55 <ais523> bye :-)
01:56:47 <shachaf> I am the very model of a Turing halting oracle, / I've information esoteric-wiki categorical
01:58:16 <shachaf> If you have linear types, can you have a halting oracle that uses up its argument?
01:58:33 <shachaf> So you can either know whether something halts, or you can run it, but not both.
01:58:59 <shachaf> I mean, can you implement it.
01:59:28 <ais523> you mean can you implement a halting oracle for a linear language in itself, whilst keeping the language sub-Turing?
01:59:39 <ais523> (note that it clearly has to be /sub/-Turing to work)
01:59:49 <shachaf> The usual proof about the halting problem depends on being able to duplicate things.
02:00:10 -!- enoua5 has quit (Ping timeout: 260 seconds).
02:00:12 <shachaf> Maybe that's what I mean. Of course if you can implement it it's not really an oracle.
02:00:50 <ais523> well, you need restrctions on the language to make the problem interesting
02:00:54 <shachaf> Right.
02:00:56 <ais523> you can add a halting oracle for Deadfish in Deadfish
02:01:00 <ais523> without any real issues
02:01:31 <shachaf> Or maybe the language itself is Turing-complete, but the oracle is external to the language, but adding it doesn't make the language super-Turing.
02:01:42 <shachaf> Then again, I don't like Turing completeness, I'd rather avoid it if possible.
02:01:44 <ais523> because Deadfish programs always halt and the existence of a halting oracle won't help
02:02:01 <ais523> shachaf: well, being able to halting-oracle arbitrary TC programs would be kind-of revolutionary
02:02:20 <shachaf> Well, the "programs" would have to be something other than data.
02:02:28 <shachaf> Because data is freely duplicatable.
02:03:10 <pikhq> ais523: That's putting it likely.
02:03:12 <pikhq> *lightly
02:03:36 <shachaf> ais523: It's not revolutionary, it's the point of an oracle.
02:03:45 <shachaf> Being able to implement it in the language would be revolutionary.
02:04:13 <ais523> so we're basically talking about a language which has access to an oracle for itself, but some restriction that prevents it using it to gain more computational power
02:04:32 <shachaf> Right, that's one of the options that might be interesting.
02:04:33 <ais523> that's fairly easy to do if, say, the language is defined to immediately go into an infinite loop if the oracle says "doesn't halt"
02:04:44 <ais523> (you can actually implement this without an oracle, too :-P)
02:05:02 <ais523> I'm reminded of http://esolangs.org/wiki/WUUI although it isn't exactly what you're looking for
02:06:33 <ais523> come to think of it, a naive impl of that language may have a slower computational complexity than any other language on Esolang
02:06:43 <ais523> possibly including the ones that require brute-forcing hashes
02:06:54 <ais523> (arguably those are O(1), for sufficiently large values of 1)
02:07:11 <shachaf> What if the hash length is a function of the program length?
02:07:59 <ais523> I don't think we have any of those yet
02:08:14 <oerjan> . o O ( does oracle really rhyme with categorical )

02:16:20 <oerjan> enoua5: now, now, let's not joke about their drinking problems
02:16:22 <shachaf> Which book?
02:16:30 <ais523> "mineral" and "general" would need to match everything from the first vowel onwards to rhyme, and they don't
02:16:36 <ais523> and I can't remember, it was ages ago
02:16:41 <shachaf> Because the stress is on that syllable?
02:16:56 <shachaf> I figured out that rule but it took me a while.
02:17:08 <shachaf> Fortunately I'm capable of rhyming even without knowing the rules.
02:17:51 <oerjan> `learn_append shachaf He is capable of rhyming even without knowing the rules.
02:18:33 <ais523> shachaf: specifically, you take the last syllable that has a reasonable amount of stress
02:18:38 <ais523> and have to rhyme from its vowel onwards
02:18:46 <shachaf> I remember the first time I saw a poem in a book -- or maybe it was a song, they're the same word in Hebrew -- and I asked the person who was reading the book to me (or was I reading it and they were helping me?) how they knew it was a poem (or song).
02:18:52 <shachaf> And they said it was because it had short lines.
02:19:19 <ais523> well, "plainverse" is a poetry genre defined pretty much entirely by random linebreaks and no other restrictions
02:19:24 <shachaf> This book was probably _Charlie and the Chocolate Factory_.
02:19:35 <ais523> but I'm not sure it really counts as poetry at that point
02:19:39 <ais523> "I will call him Mel,
02:19:43 <ais523> because that was his name."
02:19:45 <shachaf> ais523: Well, they didn't say it was a necessary condition.
02:19:55 * oerjan wonders if he mentioned that the russian word for "sings" is "поёт"
02:20:19 <oerjan> it does _not_, however, apply to poetry afaiu
02:21:03 <shachaf> what about poëtry
02:21:13 <oerjan> don't know
02:21:24 <shachaf> or поётрий
02:21:26 <oerjan> (although russians rarely write the ¨)
02:21:40 <ais523> technically it should be "poëtry" under English spelling rules
02:21:41 <shachaf> ё is pronounced "yo" if I remember correctly.

02:23:45 <alercah> yeah

02:24:08 <ais523> (what is the correct spelling of that word, anyway?)
02:24:10 <shachaf> ais523: Depends on the class of esoteric language.
02:24:24 <ais523> maybe it's actually two words which is why I can't figure out how to spell it as one
02:24:47 <shachaf> Yes, it's two words.
02:24:54 <ais523> btw, what's the current status of "alright", is it a word yet?
02:24:56 <shachaf> For example English isn't like languages that try to be as simple as possible.
02:25:12 <ais523> a dictionary I owned when growing up specifically listed it as not a word
02:25:16 <shachaf> I don't like "alright". But maybe it's unavoidable.
02:25:16 <ais523> like, most nonwords aren't even in the dictionary

02:30:30 <ais523> although that isn't normally very expressive
02:30:50 <ais523> many babies only use one word for everything, and just repeat it until an adult figures out what they mean by trial and error
02:31:06 <ais523> actually that sounds like an esolang
02:31:15 <ais523> it ignores the input program given, and does something random

02:42:38 <ais523> that would seem to fit the naming scheme, a pity it isn't actually a real word

02:42:52 <sirnaysayer> phallometric
02:43:00 <shachaf> So making a small change in the syntax makes a small change in the program.
02:43:06 <shachaf> I'm not sure what that would mean exactly.
02:43:47 <ais523> shachaf: well, the last time I tried to write a language where the programs were continuous functions with real-numbered inputs and outputs and so was memory

02:44:45 <shachaf> Is it TC?
02:45:02 <ais523> I'm pretty sure it is
02:45:08 <ais523> I'd worked out a way to implement cyclic tag in it I think
02:45:13 <ais523> not sure if I ever wrote it down
02:46:13 <ais523> oh right, just looking at the code to my impl
02:46:20 <ais523> and it uses a custom allocator because of course it does
02:46:49 <enoua5> Something a friend and I were wanting to do is make either make a language using mostly snowman or entirely characters from Unicode's Miscellaneous Symbols
02:47:18 <ais523> please don't fall into the trap of trying to assign a meaningful command to every codepoint in Unicode :-P
02:47:37 <ais523> and if you do, /definitely/ don't make a list of every character in your documentation, showing it as currently undefined/undecided
02:47:40 <enoua5> I'm not THAT crazy
02:47:49 <ais523> and if you have to do even that, /very definitely/ don't post it to the wiki
02:47:59 <ais523> (this has, sadly, happened before)
02:48:26 <shachaf> Why is it sad?
02:48:26 <pikhq> You could possibly come up with interesting semantics using Miscellaneous Symbols for kinda-mnemonic effect, at least.
02:48:32 <shachaf> Does the wiki have bad support for big pages?
02:49:23 <enoua5> Well, It's pointless to have all that meaningless information
02:49:51 <ais523> shachaf: the person in question was creating a huge numbre of pages
02:49:58 <shachaf> Oh.
02:50:01 <ais523> MediaWiki doesn't like very very large pages
02:50:04 <ais523> also it rather bloats the database dumps
02:50:05 <shachaf> pikhq: What's a good build system?
02:50:11 <ais523> which reminds me, I haven't done a wiki backup in a while
02:50:12 <shachaf> Do you think bazel is good?
02:51:17 <ais523> fizzie: wiki backup dump appears to be broken
02:52:37 <enoua5> u+26a2 to u+26a9 would be.. Interesting
02:53:46 <ais523> here: http://sprunge.us/OALJ
02:53:57 <pikhq> shachaf: Good... build system...
02:54:05 <ais523> I appear to have some documentation on an algorithm for compiling cyclic tag into 3SP
02:54:10 <ais523> in POD format for some reason
02:54:31 <pikhq> Dunno that such a thing exists.
02:54:40 <ais523> I guess I was planning to write a compiler but got stuck
02:54:57 <ais523> pikhq: there's aimake, which also isn't good but which I think shows promise, mostly because I wrote it

02:59:06 <shachaf> There are many things I like about bazel.
03:02:09 <enoua5> With Factory. I'm debating between two things: porting it to a console language, or creating a visual interpreter. Any opionions?
03:02:52 <ais523> a visual interpreter will be more fun but fairly slow
03:02:56 <ais523> err, fairly hard to writ
03:02:57 <ais523> *write
03:03:12 <ais523> I have this problem lately when I say something that's only tangentially connected to what I actually mean
03:03:22 <ais523> then often notice after I've said it and have to correct it
03:03:55 <enoua5> Yeah, I was originally thinking of the visual interpreter as a sort of debug mode
03:04:37 <enoua5> *debugger
03:05:01 <enoua5> but, yes. it would be both hard and slow
03:08:22 <enoua5> And I don't know how easily I could get it into a console language. It's in JS right now, and I took advantage of some of JS's flexability
03:09:07 <shachaf> What's a console language?
03:10:38 <enoua5> all text based. prints to console (as in command line)
03:11:06 <shachaf> Oh. Doesn't JavaScript qualify?
03:11:20 <shachaf> Or: What's the advantage of a console language?
03:11:28 <enoua5> It's all in browser
03:12:02 <shachaf> Not if you get a non-browser version.
03:12:25 <enoua5> If I did it console based I could have the user be able to see older inputs and outputs without having to do all sorts of crazy
03:15:13 <enoua5> I decided that I didn't want to use a JS's console because I wanted someone to be able to publish a program they make, and the average person doesn't know about js console

05:07:24 <izalove> "Describe how you could use a single array to implement three stacks."
05:07:39 <izalove> is the answer to store them like this? abcabcabcabc ?
05:10:30 <ais523> that's one method that works; it's time-efficient but can be memory-inefficient if they have unbalanced sizes
05:12:02 <izalove> the memory efficient way involves moving stacks b and c when inserting a new element in a?
05:14:35 <ais523> yes
05:36:01 <hppavilion[1]> ais523: What's the memory- and time-inefficient way?
05:36:25 <hppavilion[1]> (Are there any rigorous measures of complexity other than time- and space-complexity?)
05:36:49 <ais523> you could use your array as a memory space, create a custom allocator that allocates from it
05:36:51 <ais523> then implement the stacks as linked lists
05:36:55 <ais523> that's pretty inefficient
05:37:02 <ais523> (although it's O(n) for both memory and time)
05:37:12 <ais523> err, O(n) for memory, O(1) for time

05:44:32 <izalove> "what didn't you undersrtand? what part do i have to explain?"

05:44:40 <hppavilion[1]> izalove: I would say that "?" alone is bad, but "%: ?" % nickname is sufficient

05:51:35 <oerjan> shocking
05:52:13 <hppavilion[1]> (Really, I think Unicode should have added Bazin's characters ages ago... They never gained usage in any languages I've seen, but people probably want to use them all the time)

06:02:35 <izalove> t1 is a tree with millions of nodes, t2 is a tree with hundreds of nodes
06:02:47 <izalove> determine if t2 is identical to a subtree of t1
06:04:03 <izalove> is there a smart way to do this? looks like substring matching but stuff like boyer moore seems harder to apply
06:14:56 <hppavilion[1]> Today's xkcd is nice.
06:20:09 <ais523> izalove: express the trees in polish or reverse-polish notation, then do a substring match
06:20:35 <ais523> (to avoid false positives you'll need to distinguish leaves from branches but that isn't hard)
06:20:37 <izalove> damn
06:21:21 <ais523> what a weird reaction
06:21:35 <izalove> it's really nice

06:39:11 <oerjan> Necrosporus: normally not considered so, but our wiki _does_ have a page for it.
06:40:11 <Necrosporus> What about dc language?
06:40:38 <Necrosporus> As in desk calculator
06:40:48 <Necrosporus> or sed
06:41:28 <Necrosporus> Those languages even though widely available are quite similar to languages considered esotheric, aren't they?
06:43:03 <oerjan> yes they are. although normally we exclude languages that are made for "serious use".
06:43:26 <oerjan> but i know e.g. zzo38 (not here at the moment) has done some strange things with dc.
06:44:03 <oerjan> and we have ///, which you could say is _inspired_ by sed.
06:44:30 <Necrosporus> What strange things?
06:44:47 <oerjan> well he did make a Deadfish implementation in it.
06:45:26 <oerjan> i suppose that's not _that_ strange, but he had to use the alternative "xkcd" command set to make it work.
06:45:40 <oerjan> and i think he's done other things, which i don't quite remember.

22:55:41 <hppavilion[1]> I'd like to propose a new function to simplify notation (based on the fairly reasonable- but not actually formally proven as far as I've seen- assumption that all ellipses with the same ratio between the minor and major radii have their circumference scaled the same as their radii. In other words, if you make an ellipse twice as big (along x and y), then it will have twice the circumference. This is at least true for circles. Please oh

22:59:05 <hppavilion[1]> pia ([paɪ.ʌ]; pi augmented). It's a function represented by an inverted minuscule pi (flipped over x, not rotated by 180°) which takes an argument p representing the proportion between the major and minor radii of an ellipse. It returns a constant c such that an ellipse where the radii have proportion p has circumference of c*r (where r is the minor radius if |p| > 1, the major radius if |p| < 1, and any radius if |p| = 1)
