15:49:39 <fizzie> Maybe I should just remove the line they tried to remove anyway, I don't think two empty lines make the source any more readable than one.

15:50:47 <quintopia> don't you think it's time for a new featured language?
15:51:33 <Taneb> "Hello, world!" is a quine in HQ9+
15:52:00 <quintopia> without the quotes yes
15:52:05 <LKoen> I don't know. brainfuck has only been there four years.
15:52:25 <fizzie> Has it been four years already? Sounds dubious.
15:52:30 <quintopia> i miss the days where it actually changed on occasion
15:52:49 <fizzie> Huh.
15:52:50 <Taneb> I think Underload should be the next featured language
15:52:53 <fizzie> Time flies.
15:53:28 <quintopia> I don't care what the next is, as long as it isn't a brainfuck derivative :P
15:54:00 <fizzie> It's proposed in https://esolangs.org/wiki/Esolang:Featured_languages/Candidates and hasn't been featured yet, and the article's pretty comprehensive, so I'd be happy with featuring Underload.
15:54:27 <quintopia> duat
15:55:31 <fizzie> Does someone want to add an {{infobox proglang ...}} for Underload? ;)
15:56:15 <fizzie> I'd also like to have Befunge as the featured language at some point, but the article is not super great.
15:56:51 <fizzie> By the way, I'll be migrating the wiki over to a new server probably this Sunday, so expect maybe an hour or two of being locked in matrix of soli.. I mean, in read-only mode.
15:57:16 <int-e> wee

15:57:52 <int-e> (I've moved that thing 3 times already.)
15:57:58 <quintopia> what is the underload paradigm?
15:58:02 <int-e> (But I think a wiki is more... uhm... interesting.)
15:59:02 <quintopia> is it a """""functional""""" language?
15:59:12 <int-e> `? underload
15:59:17 <quintopia> or does that need more scare quotes?
15:59:21 <HackEgo> underload? ¯\(°​_o)/¯
15:59:25 <fizzie> int-e: I wrote down a cheat sheet for setting up the "CaC is down again" backup copy, so it's not too painful any more. It's pretty close to restoring from backups, after all.
16:00:31 <fizzie> (It's basically "undump the mysql database, rsync and chmod the image upload folders, run a maintenance PHP script to regenerate the file cache".)
16:00:54 <quintopia> what is a CaC
16:01:05 <Taneb> quintopia: a swear word in Latin
16:01:12 <fizzie> The previous hosting company, Cloud At Cost.
16:01:19 <fizzie> (At the cost of your sanity.)
16:02:05 <quintopia> is there a file extension for underload programs?
16:03:03 <fizzie> The test files for fungot's Underload interpreter are .ul files.
16:03:04 <fungot> fizzie: that i definitely need to write up a bool debugger so it's easier for beginners to get over the initial, for the practice and associated ill effects of sword swallowing. design: letters sent to sword swallowers requesting information on technique and complications. setting: membership lists of the form
16:03:14 <fizzie> I don't know how canonical that is, or if I just named 'em like that myself.
16:04:17 <quintopia> it's canonical until ais523 says otherwise
16:04:35 <fizzie> http://yiap.nfshost.com/esoteric.php?f=underload uses it.
16:06:26 <fizzie> (In fact, 99.ul from there is one of the test files. The other is burden.ul, which I think is a test suite elliott wrote.)

16:35:56 <quintopia> i feel like we, as a community, need to come together on names for the new programming paradigms we have invented. what is the paradigm for muriel?
16:38:13 <Taneb> Quine-oriented?
16:38:58 <quintopia> a bit imprecise. it doesn't have to quine itself. it can replace itself with a different program at any time.
16:39:15 <Taneb> Succession-oriented
16:39:25 <quintopia> ...not bad
16:39:53 <quintopia> what is the paradigm for Resplicate?
16:41:21 <Taneb> I haven't seen ResPlicate before
16:42:08 <Taneb> It's almost a tag machine
16:46:46 <quintopia> except the rules are not separate from the string being rewritten. but i would agree it is in the same order if not the same family
16:50:34 <quintopia> how about "Post-like system"

19:34:44 <\oren\> TIL apparently C89 doesn't support signed zeros
19:42:55 <zzo38> I thought whether it support signed integer zeros is a feature of the computer and not of the programming language. For floating numbers there is signed zeros I think, though; but maybe that too is only by the feature of the computer and not of the programming language, I don't know
19:45:36 <\oren\> supposedly in C89 there isn't support for floating point signed zero
19:46:14 <zzo38> O, maybe
19:46:46 <zzo38> But I thought it is depending on the floating point format used in the computer that the program is for.
19:50:23 <fizzie> What does "support" mean here? C89 has the same model for floating-point types, which is a sign-magnitude one. (C89 footnote 8 even says: "This model precludes floating-point representations other than sign-magnitude.")
19:55:16 <fizzie> I guess it might mean there isn't necessarily any way of distinguishing between negative and positive zero, since they compare equal, and C89 <math.h> doesn't have any functions for getting the sign of a floating-point value.
19:58:39 <fizzie> Though looks like even C11 allows for a floating point representation that doesn't differentiate them. (C11 "An implementation may give zero -- a sign or may leave [it] unsigned. Wherever such values are unsigned, any requirement -- to retrieve the sign shall produce an unspecified sign, and any requirement to set the string shall be ignored.")
