00:02:30 <zzo38> One idea I have is adding a format code into printf and scanf to indicate that this format string is used only to indicate the type and that the actual format string to use will be the next one (which might not use all of the data arguments, but it can know the type of arguments that are skipped, as well as other uses)

01:06:33 <zzo38> Is there TeX implemented in PostScript, so that it is possible for PostScript codes to interfere with TeX codes (rather than only executing PostScript codes after TeX is finished)?
02:20:29 <b_jonas> zzo38: well, you could probably *compile* TeX into postscript with a custom translator
02:24:03 <zzo38> Yes, but: [1] I don't know of any such translator. [2] It won't be as good as doing it properly. [3] It will not interact with PostScript codes very well unless it is modified to do so.
02:28:18 <b_jonas> sure, you'd have to write a translator
02:28:22 <b_jonas> what do you mean properly?
02:28:31 <b_jonas> the proper way to run TeX is to use its original code
02:28:45 <b_jonas> so if you want to implement it in postscript, you compile the original code rather than reimplement it
02:29:36 <b_jonas> you could do it like pdflatex in that you don't use the part that writes the DVI to a file, and just run graphics primitives immediately
02:29:43 <b_jonas> but the part that does the layout is worth to keep
02:29:50 <zzo38> Yes, of course, if you do it the other way then it won't be TeX, but it will be similar. But, if PostScript codes are to interfere with TeX codes then it won't be TeX, it will be almost-TeX, I suppose.
02:30:33 <zzo38> In order to implement text formatting properly, probably another node type might be helpful, so that it can work properly if split across lines and pages, too.
02:34:03 <zzo38> Of course you would run the graphics primitives directly, but my idea is to do that during the \shipout operation (which would render a box and then the PostScript showpage operator)
02:36:05 <zzo38> Since it is not quite TeX, this also means \immediate could be usable with boxes too, in case you do want to render it immediately (possibly due to wanting to implement the page layout in PostScript)
02:42:33 <zzo38> Also, PostScript has its own memory management, too.
03:32:18 <zzo38> An alternative possibility would be implementing the typesetting algorithms of TeX in PostScript; it will not be compatible, although for some purposes it can be used. The token input of TeX can then also be implemented, too.

20:57:38 <int-e> the danger of indefinite pronouns
20:58:18 <int-e> why isn't it "indefinitive"...
20:59:06 <int-e> confused by pronouns... indefinitely
21:00:05 <int-e> (I'm *actually* confused, too... "it" is a definite pronoun)
21:14:58 * oerjan wonders if int-e is responding to him but can see no pronoun ambiguity in what he wrote
21:16:24 <oerjan> . o O ( the danger of indefinite context )
21:18:20 <int-e> oerjan: the FF comic has a subject confusion
21:18:33 <int-e> or object confusion, whatever
21:49:43 <oerjan> oh duh
21:50:03 <oerjan> . o O ( forget my own head next )
21:50:48 * oerjan was archive binging girl genius a bit to see if that lady in today's last panel was in the museum they'd visited, but no.
21:52:02 <oerjan> i suppose it would be easier with colors

21:54:07 <oerjan> wait is it a lady
21:55:22 <int-e> Oh, didn't read that because I got distracted by the lack of colors
21:55:40 <int-e> (causing me to check back on last Friday's comic which is still uncolored)
21:56:43 <oerjan> ah
21:57:12 <oerjan> well it doesn't resemble lord moonbark, so probably a lady, but have we seen her before?
21:58:02 <int-e> doesn't she resemble Agatha...
21:59:01 <int-e> Colors (like hair color) would help :P And we are in a time traveling universe.
22:00:40 -!- dermato has joined.
22:01:04 <oerjan> she does. but i don't think agatha was in such a position before they got her mother removed.
22:01:39 <int-e> Then, how about Lucrecia herself
22:02:10 <oerjan> i guess we'll see.
22:02:22 <int-e> That's my usual attitude to GG these days.
22:03:01 <oerjan> i have a hunch the mirrors aren't how the time travel is done, though. (remember van rijn'r prisoner who disappeared with a poof?)
22:03:11 <int-e> I would have to archive binge regularly to keep track of the myriad of plot lines.
22:03:26 <oerjan> (and was presumably lucrezia)
22:04:58 <int-e> We've seen them in action *once* and a couple of flashbacks... but yeah, it was consistent with pure teleportation.
22:05:13 <int-e> (As far as I recall)
22:06:18 <oerjan> well there are also the window apparitions agatha and dupree saw, but that was still "mirror" on only one end
22:07:20 <int-e> But those *were* traveling in time?
22:07:35 <oerjan> yes
22:07:57 <oerjan> at least the ones with future agatha etc. on the other side
22:08:31 <int-e> I guess technically they wouldn't have to be... they could be time traveling by other means and then use a mirror-like device to scan around :P
22:08:48 <int-e> But... that seems overly complicated even by GG standards.
22:14:16 <oerjan> back to "we'll see", then.
22:26:23 <b_jonas> maybe smoke is involved too, not just mirrors
