00:06:08 <HackEgo> Your esteemoologist wise mementolwrd oerjan is a lazy expert in suture complication. Also a Glaswegian who passionfruitly dislikes Roald Dahl. Lately when he tries to remember a word, "amortized" pops up. His arch-nemesis is Betty Crocker. He sometimes puns without noticing it.

00:09:03 <HackEgo> ​"Only sane man" boily is monetizing a brotherhood scheme with the Guardian of Lachine, apparently involving cookie dealing. He's also a NaniDispenser, a Trigotillectomic Groan Man Eating Chicken and a METARologist. He is seriously lacking in the f-word department. He is also a renowned Capitalist who helps keep the world boring.

00:39:05 <fizzie> (For a very loose definition of "standard".)
00:39:57 <hppavilion[1]> fizzie: Oh. pikhq once used that name on another channel (it didn't work), so I assumed it was the standard...
00:40:06 <hppavilion[1]> fizzie: Is there a standard format [for automated versions]?
00:40:10 <fizzie> http://www.irchelp.org/protocol/ctcpspec.html "CLIENTINFO -- This is for client developers use to make it easier to show other client hackers what a certain client knows when it comes to CTCP. The replies should be fairly verbose explaining what CTCP commands are understood, what arguments are expected of what type, and what replies might be expected from the client."
00:40:20 <hppavilion[1]> (I seem to be using square brackets as parenthesis a lot recently...)
00:40:51 <b_jonas> helloerjan!
00:41:15 <fizzie> The reply to a no-argument 'CLIENTINFO' query is intended to be a list of known tags; then you can ask for (e.g.) "CLIENTINFO VERSION" to get an explanation of that tag, and so on.
00:41:19 <b_jonas> oerjan: I saw you found a delexing algorithm for Incident. Nice. I was trying to find one myself (I'm not giving that up).
00:41:31 <hppavilion[1]> fizzie: OK, added that as an alias

00:44:38 <shachaf> Yes, I understand that part.
00:44:48 <hppavilion[1]> shachaf: So I `thanksed giving in HackEgo.
00:44:59 <fizzie> The best part about thanksgiving is no emails from MTV.
00:45:16 <shachaf> Hmm, I could go to MTV and email you.
00:45:49 <zzo38> I did not implement CLIENTINFO on my client yet, I can hope to do that? Let me to read exactly what is the protocol, first.
00:45:56 <fizzie> shachaf: How does this Thanksgiving thing work, are you folks offline for tomorrow as well?
00:47:02 <shachaf> It's not a federal holiday.
00:47:08 <b_jonas> fungot, have you implemented CLIENTINFO on your client yet?
00:47:08 <fungot> b_jonas: i know i didn't know that you've had it for some time i added a new page and sends it to emacs, i suggest, vote). you need just some 50 more metres and i'm home, and realised i forgot to take down what he actually checks
00:47:20 <shachaf> Or a stock exchange holiday.
00:47:27 <fizzie> fungot is very bad about CTCPs.
00:47:27 <shachaf> I don't remember whether it's a Google holiday.
00:47:28 <fungot> fizzie: perhaps, if i could but learn is when you're fairies, you know, that thing about genocide is to be one decimal). the following is a little harder than to wait for the airshow. look over jorma's shoulder. " what size will you be? miss, this here ought to be fnord from the house, and heal my computer with full u+ support" then they both bowed low. just keep the safe or tub and emptied it
00:47:58 <b_jonas> shachaf: is it a holiday where you celebrate only in the evening?
00:48:14 <hppavilion[1]> Wait, I forget
00:48:20 <hppavilion[1]> What's shachaf's nationality?
00:48:48 <oerjan> b_hellonas, thanks
00:48:49 <shachaf> fizzie: I don't have a detailed holiday document.
00:49:06 <fizzie> Hm. Well, maybe it'll be quiet anyway.
00:49:22 <shachaf> I have a document that says that in addition to holidays, US employees get 15 days/year of vacation to start.
00:49:24 <hppavilion[1]> fizzie: Thanksgiving is federal in the US
00:49:35 <hppavilion[1]> Since 1863
00:49:45 <fizzie> hppavilion[1]: Yes, but I'm talking about the Friday.
00:50:00 <fizzie> I think it's the black one?
00:50:02 <shachaf> I suspect the situation in EMEA is better.
00:50:07 <shachaf> Is London EMEA?
00:50:15 <fizzie> Yes, London's EMEA.
00:50:31 <fizzie> I guess post-Brexit the 'E' is a bit debatable.
00:51:18 <shachaf> Do you have a number of non-holiday vacation days per year?
00:51:25 <shachaf> Is it 25 maybe?
00:51:34 <hppavilion[1]> Ah
00:51:40 <hppavilion[1]> fizzie: Black friday is not federal
00:51:44 <fizzie> shachaf: It might be 20.
00:51:52 <hppavilion[1]> fizzie: brxit?
00:52:08 <hppavilion[1]> It's the opposite of federal
00:52:10 <hppavilion[1]> It's confederal
00:52:28 <shachaf> fizzie: You can probably look it up on go/holidaycalendar or something like that.
00:52:32 <shachaf> @time fizzie
00:52:33 <lambdabot> Local time for fizzie is Fri Nov 25 00:52:32 2016
00:52:51 <shachaf> I mean, look up details about Friday.
00:53:16 <fizzie> shachaf: Actually, I think the 25 was right. I keep remembering it in hours (for a nominal 8-hour day).
00:53:28 <fizzie> (That's how Workday shows it.)
00:53:52 <shachaf> Are your work days 8 hours long?
00:54:07 <fizzie> I forget. There was some number in the contract.
00:54:15 <fizzie> It's a very theoretical number anyway.
00:54:16 <shachaf> I mean in practice.
00:54:22 <fizzie> Well, no.
00:55:17 <fizzie> I guess they are sometimes. But the commute takes two hours in total.
00:55:18 <zzo38> I did implement USERINFO but I have not implemented SOURCE because I have no FTP server (if you have a FTP server to mirror this file then I will add a link to it). Also that document does not specify the encryption scheme for SED
00:56:07 <shachaf> boily: It's kind of cold, actually.
00:56:14 <shachaf> I have a gas heater but I never figured out how to turn it on.
00:56:21 <shachaf> I think it has a pilot light.
00:56:35 <shachaf> I guess I should find out how to turn that on.
00:57:05 <zzo38> The specification for FINGER includes full name, which can be seen by using the WHOIS command with the server; WHOIS will also give idle time. However, there might be the use if the client's idea of the idle time is wanted instead of the server's idea of the client's idle time.
01:01:26 <fizzie> shachaf: Actually, looking at my Oyster history, 8 isn't that far off.
01:03:52 <shachaf> If a program wants to use variables that are put in a special ELF section, what can it do?
01:04:22 <shachaf> Apparently ld.bfd supports .{start,size}of.(sectionname)
01:04:26 <shachaf> But ld.gold doesn't.
01:04:27 <zzo38> (The IRC client I use is simple and does not even keep track of the user's real name, although it wouldn't be too difficult to add the feature to keep track of it.)

01:04:42 <b_jonas> fizzie: wait, Oyster? isn't that some city mass transport pass?
01:04:53 <fizzie> b_jonas: Yes, London's.
01:05:05 <shachaf> You can link an object file that puts something in the section before and after, but that's kind of annoying.
01:05:20 <fizzie> b_jonas: If you register the card (and turn the thing on), you get emailed an "Oyster Journey History" (PDF + CSV) once a month.
01:05:41 <shachaf> You can also open /proc/self/exe and inspect it.
01:05:45 <b_jonas> shachaf: um, try asking through the compiler or the assembler. I think the object files can represent section info, and you can tell the compiler or assembler to emit such things.
01:05:57 <shachaf> How?
01:05:59 <fizzie> shachaf: I have a vague notion you can add symbols for the section in a linker script.
01:06:00 <b_jonas> shachaf: check the gcc docs for variable attributes
01:06:11 <zzo38> shachaf: I would think that would also require to be used on an operating system that supports that.
01:06:12 <shachaf> fizzie: Right, the linker script is the other option.
01:06:21 <b_jonas> shachaf: which of assembly, C, C++ etc are you defining the variables?
01:06:22 <HackEgo> [wiki] [[DROL]] M https://esolangs.org/w/index.php?diff=50387&oldid=50386 * BradleySadowsky * (-27) Redo layout of implementations list
01:06:25 <zzo38> (Hopefully the operating system does support that.)
01:06:32 <shachaf> But you can't just add an additional linker script, apparently, you can only replace the existing ones.
01:06:37 <shachaf> b_jonas: In this case C++.
01:06:45 <b_jonas> shachaf: what compiler?
01:06:52 <shachaf> g++ or clang++
01:06:57 <zzo38> If it is C++ maybe you have to disable name-mangling for those purpose?
01:06:58 <b_jonas> recent one?
01:07:05 <b_jonas> let me check the docs
01:07:07 <shachaf> Sure.
01:07:25 <shachaf> The context is this library: https://github.com/mortehu/xflags
01:07:48 <b_jonas> shachaf: https://gcc.gnu.org/onlinedocs/gcc-6.2.0/gcc/Common-Variable-Attributes.html search for "section"
01:08:17 <shachaf> It's like gflags but it puts flag information in an ELF section so it can be used for e.g. fast startup and autocompletion.
01:08:32 <shachaf> b_jonas: Yes, that lets me put things in the section (which is what that library does).
01:08:37 <HackEgo> [wiki] [[DROL]] M https://esolangs.org/w/index.php?diff=50388&oldid=50387 * BradleySadowsky * (+0) Fix typo
01:09:00 <b_jonas> shachaf: ok, so what's the problem? does the linker not handle that properly?
01:09:18 <shachaf> No, the problem is that I want the program to scan through the things I put in that section.
01:09:28 <shachaf> I think I phrased it badly at the beginning.
01:09:29 <b_jonas> oh!
01:09:53 <b_jonas> shachaf: could you put a symbol (possibly a variable symbol) at the beginning of the section, and one at the end?
01:10:00 <shachaf> Yes, that's what that library does.
01:10:07 <b_jonas> ok
01:10:19 <shachaf> But then you have to take care to link that thing before anything else.
01:10:28 <shachaf> Otherwise you silently miss variables.
01:10:36 <b_jonas> um...
01:10:44 <shachaf> You can also use .startof.(sectionname), but ld.gold doesn't support that.
01:11:11 <b_jonas> but doesn't the linker help in that? as in, doesn't it have some way to give weights to the variables so they're ordered like that, or put multiple sections one after the other directly in a given order, or something?
01:12:20 <shachaf> What do you mean?
01:13:02 <b_jonas> shachaf: as in, write a linker script that tells to put the sections foo0, foo1, foo2 consecutively in the output binary, put the variables in foo1, and the markers in foo0 and foo2
01:13:28 <shachaf> Well, if you can avoid writing a linker script, that would be better.
01:13:37 <b_jonas> I dunno
01:13:42 <shachaf> In particular I don't think you can just add a linker script for the thing you want, you can only replace the existing one?
01:14:20 <b_jonas> shachaf: instead of variables, could you use gcc's builtin support to create functions that are ran at the startup of the program, and let those register the variables at runtime?
01:14:42 <b_jonas> gcc has a way to give weights to order those init functions
01:14:51 <b_jonas> (depends on the linker and crt probably)
01:15:17 <b_jonas> I dunno really
01:15:18 <shachaf> Yes, but part of the point of this library is to avoid doing that.
01:15:45 <shachaf> fizzie might have an idea why.
01:16:30 <b_jonas> I don't know much about linker magic.
01:17:15 <b_jonas> There are some other channels here on freenode where you can try to ask if people can't help here, including ##workingset
01:17:38 <b_jonas> Or you could try asking on non-irc forums too
01:19:02 <fizzie> shachaf: There's probably a bunch of properties of the default linker script you could take advantage of, but maybe none I'd be entirely comfortable in relying on.
01:19:22 <b_jonas> Or maybe try to ask the linux kernel people, some of them probably know a lot about unusual compiler+linker magic.
01:20:17 <b_jonas> Also asking ais523 could be worth a try.
01:20:21 <shachaf> They use .startof. now, maybe: https://patchwork.kernel.org/patch/9296965/
01:20:28 <fizzie> shachaf: FWIW, there's one way of "augmenting" the linker script as well at least on GNU ld (see the 'INSERT' command in https://sourceware.org/binutils/docs/ld/Miscellaneous-Commands.html#Miscellaneous-Commands and it's description of -T).

01:48:45 <fizzie> I assume that's the Pandora's Box they keep talking about.
01:48:49 <fizzie> (I didn't open it.)
01:51:14 <zzo38> But does it have your name on it? If so, did you expect something shipped? (If either answer is no, then probably you should not open it.)
01:51:25 <fizzie> No, it wasn't for me.
01:53:06 <fizzie> In other "seen things" news, there's this South West Trains ad I keep seeing, I think it's a little on the ominous side: https://zem.fi/tmp/escape.jpg

01:57:47 <fizzie> shachaf: I hadn't realized it was a TRAAAAAINS ad before I had already started to type here.

02:00:56 <quintopia> gnight boily
02:01:36 <boily> bonnnuitopia!
02:01:51 <quintopia> i never know when to use bon or bonne so i give up
02:01:59 <oerjan> . o O ( ominous backwards is suonimo, that's ominously close to finnish )
02:02:25 <quintopia> ominoreg backwards is geronimo
02:02:57 <boily> quintopia: «bon» is masculine, and «bonne» is feminine. «nuit» is feminine, so it's «bonne nuit».
02:03:06 <quintopia> "I, Mouse" backwards is "E, Suomi"
02:03:14 <oerjan> <boily> there's bamboo shoots in har gow. I feel betrayed. <-- is your relationship to bamboo shots similar to shachaf's relationship to bell peppers?
02:03:32 <zzo38> In JavaScript there is a "constructor" property of most objects. I don't know exactly what was the intended use, but I have found it useful when parsing command-line arguments, by writing something like: option[x]=option[x].constructor(y); The values here are all primitives, and x and y are strings. How common is this kind of code?
02:03:36 <boily> oerjan: no, I was thinking that har gow was purely shrimp.
02:03:41 <quintopia> boily: the latins were stupid. words don't need genders.
02:04:11 <boily> word gender is perfectly logical. «un lit», «une nuit». see, it's sane!
02:04:17 <quintopia> does har gow make your hair grow?
02:04:27 <boily> no, I'm just a Groan Man.
02:04:44 <quintopia> not as groanworthy as shachaf
02:04:53 <oerjan> <quintopia> i never know when to use bon or bonne so i give up <-- are you saying you have gender issues
02:05:01 <fizzie> "Suonimo" would translate to something like "veinery".
