00:26:51 <Sgeo_> How do ordinal numbers work when "zeroth" exists? When "zeroth", does "first" = "second"?
00:27:10 <Sgeo_> I got confused by the NDball page because of this
00:27:27 <Sgeo_> label "first" = ordinal "second"

10:23:53 <salpynx> int-e: those are neat (K and S). The colours are a great idea. Do you have generic code available to this sort of tracked reduction, or is this a one off for just those combinators?
10:32:40 <salpynx> S blows out amazingly, (1933 character line at max, with 731 alphas) but reduces down relatively quickly.
10:38:28 <salpynx> ... what does `I` look like? -- is that going to be longer than S, via SKK, or is there a more direct way in terms of alpha?

10:59:35 <wib_jonas> fungot: also which core series Pokémon games have the mechanic where when a Pokémon is about to evolve from leveling, you can interrupt that by pressing a button to keep its current less evolved speices?

11:15:31 <tromp> With Johannes Bader's basis, his S is indeed not minimal. He says he found no shorter up to size 15. So he missed this one of size 16: S = X(X(X(X X(X(X(X X))))))(X(X(X X) X) X) X

12:26:46 -!- kit-ten has quit (Ping timeout: 250 seconds).
12:27:45 <salpynx> I don't know if this is a great proof, but it demonstrates my python doing what I expect the same identity function to do
12:27:47 <salpynx> `` python3 -c"α = lambda x: lambda y: lambda z: x(z)(y(lambda _: z));I = α(α(α(α(α))(α)))(α(α(α))(α));test = lambda x: 'test' if x == '?' else α;print(I(I(test))('?'))"

12:33:22 <salpynx> I get type errors if the argument is not a function (hence that 'test' lambda above which returns a string if passed a '?' string, alpha otherwise)

12:34:36 <wib_jonas> tromp: maybe it's the identity only up to eta conversion equivalence
12:34:51 <salpynx> (S(K)(K))(S(K)(K)) (all in terms of alpha) gives a fn that behaves as identity
12:35:15 <salpynx> I(S(K)(K)) triggers the max recursion depth
12:35:59 <salpynx> strangely I(S(K)(S)) seems to be trying to do something, but I haven't seen it terminate yet
12:36:10 <wib_jonas> so how you'd test the supposed identity is to pass it a hundred-argument function that returns a non-callable magic token (0 in your case), then call the result with a hundred different magic tokens, and see if you get your first magic token as a result
12:36:55 <tromp> it equals I itself, not some other eta equivalent
12:37:31 <wib_jonas> tromp: in that case you should be able to pass a non-callable argument to it

12:38:56 <tromp> of course the term is untypable; Haskell reports an infinite type error on let a x y z = x z (y (const z)) in i = a(a(a(a a) a) a) a
12:38:56 <salpynx> If this is what you meant, I(0) where 0 is an integer 0:
12:38:58 <salpynx> `` python3 -c"α = lambda x: lambda y: lambda z: x(z)(y(lambda _: z));I = α(α(α(α(α))(α)))(α(α(α))(α));I(0)"

12:39:49 <tromp> while a itself it typable: a :: (a -> t1 -> t2) -> ((b -> a) -> t1) -> a -> t2
12:42:53 <salpynx> I(S(K)(S)) appears to just loop,   I can use sks and skk as identity and sks(skk) interchangeably and that seems to work
12:46:11 <salpynx> I don't know if this helps, but using a fn b which returns its argument and prints 'B', I(b) prints B 5 times, and returns b
12:51:40 <salpynx> wib_jonas: what is the purpose of the 100 arguments in the test function? I assume 100 means 'many', but what's the main purpose? Just to create a unique signature?
12:53:32 <wib_jonas> salpynx: no, to make sure that the I can work if it's not the same I but an eta-equivalent, something like I = \x\y.xy or I = \x\y\z.xyz etc
13:00:38 <salpynx> I think this is a shorter version of that idea:
13:00:41 <salpynx> >>>I(fish)
13:00:41 <salpynx> <function fish at 0x7f21d959bea0>
13:00:42 <salpynx> >>> I(fish)(1)(2)(3)(4)(5)(6)(7)(0)
13:00:42 <salpynx> 'fish test!'
13:00:43 <salpynx> >>> I(fish)(1)(2)(3)(4)(5)(6)(7)(1)
13:00:43 <salpynx> <function <lambda> at 0x7f21d9c95c80>
13:00:44 <salpynx> >>> I(fish)(1)(2)(3)(4)(5)(6)(7)(0)
13:00:44 <salpynx> 'fish test!'
13:00:45 <salpynx> >>> (S(K)(K))(I)(fish)(1)(2)(3)(4)(5)(6)(7)(0)
13:00:45 <salpynx> 'fish test!'
13:00:46 <salpynx> >>> (S(K)(K))(fish)(1)(2)(3)(4)(5)(6)(7)(0)
13:00:47 <salpynx> 'fish test!'
13:10:55 <salpynx> it's super late, I've been poking at this too long (fish test?), but it's been interesting. If anyone wants to check my code or reproduce the recursion issue, here's what I have for alpha and SKI: https://pastebin.com/Q1R1wW7f
13:18:08 <riv> What is your opinion on rust { and } format string feature?
13:18:16 <riv> you escape then like this {{ and }}
13:20:23 <riv> \n denotes a newline, so it is better that { just denotes a '{
13:20:37 <riv> ' character. and \{ \} be used as metacharacters
13:20:58 <riv> it may be thought of as less readable
13:22:52 -!- SGautam has quit (Quit: Connection closed for inactivity).
13:28:43 <riv> string literals are purely about encoding a sequence of characters. format strings are string literals - but the sequence of characters has its own metacharacters and escaping and so on
13:28:48 <riv> so you can look at it in layers
13:29:13 <riv> having two layers of metacharacters, escaping and quotation - is it a good thing or a bad thing
13:32:46 <wib_jonas> I hate python/rust-like braced format string simply because "{:12.2e}" is two characters slower to write than "%12.2e". But rust puts an extra stupid spin on them, because the short "{}" behaves like "%f" rather than "%g" so you never even encounter the one case where you can use a format specifier that is just as short as the C-like would be.
13:33:06 <riv> i see
13:43:04 <salpynx> tromp: I( α(α(α)(α)) )  is a smaller term that causes the max recursion (or segfault if the limit is increased) behaviour
13:44:00 <wib_jonas> luckily the python standard library comes with functions that use the C-style format directives too

19:31:51 <int-e> <q> was new to me, somehow

22:28:41 <int-e> I wonder how much that would shrink if I replaced useless subterms by ⊥
22:29:31 <riv> im having trouble opening those links
22:29:35 <int-e> uhm
22:29:38 <int-e> yeah you would
22:30:05 <int-e> these should work: https://int-e.eu/~bf3/tmp/alpha-i.html https://int-e.eu/~bf3/tmp/alpha-k.html https://int-e.eu/~bf3/tmp/alpha-s.html (5MB)
22:30:50 <riv> seriously cool visualization
22:32:08 <salpynx> I just joined to say I 'found' a naive I, going from SK(K|S) -> αK(K|S) -> αKα , which is has 13 alphas. That isn't givng me the recursion trouble that the size 10 one is
22:33:39 <int-e> https://int-e.eu/~bf3/tmp/alpha-b.html stands out in that the three remaining abstractions stem from different alphas
22:33:59 <riv> Hello salpynx
22:34:54 <salpynx> Hi!
22:36:58 <zzo38> How to request the criticism/cryptanalysis of cryptographic hash algorithm? The "2D hash" has a infinite internal state size and infinite output size, and has two dimensions (input dimensions and output dimension; either one can be space and the other one time, and you will get the same answer either way).
22:37:05 <int-e> salpynx: code looks like this: https://paste.debian.net/1227159/
22:39:06 <int-e> (which is improved from yesterday where I generated HTML with `sed` :P)
22:39:26 <salpynx> +1 for sed!
22:40:17 <int-e> which would not have supported the highlighting through hovering on (the head of) subterms that the new version does :)
22:40:29 <zzo38> The first 768 bits of a empty hash are: 8d90a8ffcc33d31505cc15e2042c766e9bd965d4e51dce84fe0d871bd1d40ecbe4a2091aa2217ac92f9654b4b994ba69ba2630e260ddfd26efc7de04787984240e7e5b0d80c0ee7d616e479d6ebc3346b6efb6086e9bb0aa870de4ce8b97f019
22:40:46 -!- __monty__ has quit (Quit: leaving).
22:45:02 <int-e> tromp: you might like the Read instance from that paste :)
22:45:35 <int-e> (different design choice from yours: I use digits 0..9 and then add parentheses: (10), (11) etc.)
22:45:56 <salpynx> I'm not sure what's up with the recursion error I'm seeing with that I(I) in python. I just checked my conversion from your I notation and got the same as I was using last night
22:46:26 <salpynx> Not sure if it's the limitations of python, of there's something weird with the combinator.
22:48:11 <int-e> Hmm.
22:50:39 <salpynx> I = ``α`α``α`ααα``α`ααα = A(A(A(A A)A))(A(A A)A) = α(α(α(α(α))(α)))(α(α(α))(α))
22:51:05 <salpynx> the python notation is the worst, but it's what I'm executing
22:52:45 <int-e> well Python is strict.
22:53:11 <int-e> Note how there's a `0^... just before the last line, that gets erased in the final step?
22:53:20 <salpynx> I can paste 1 liners at HackEso to demonstrate the problem, but it's probably not that easy to read for longer examples
22:53:37 <int-e> if you try to evaluate that, it'll apply something to the argument, corresponding to TypeError: 'int' object is not callable
22:57:11 <salpynx> I was working around that by only using functions
22:57:22 <salpynx> this is the strangeness:
22:57:24 <salpynx> `` python3 -c"α = lambda x: lambda y: lambda z: x(z)(y(lambda _: z));I = α(α(α(α(α))(α)))(α(α(α))(α));I(I)"
22:57:25 <int-e> there may be other problems with the translation, I'm not sure.
22:57:26 <HackEso> Traceback (most recent call last): \ File "<string>", line 1, in <module> \ File "<string>", line 1, in <lambda> \ File "<string>", line 1, in <lambda> \ File "<string>", line 1, in <lambda> \ [Previous line repeated 996 more times] \ RecursionError: maximum recursion depth exceeded
22:57:41 <salpynx> vs.
22:57:43 <salpynx> `` python3 -c"α = lambda x: lambda y: lambda z: x(z)(y(lambda _: z));K = α(α)(α(α(α))(α)(α)(α))(α)(α(α));I = α(K)(α);print(I(I) == I)"
22:57:44 <HackEso> True
22:58:38 <salpynx> ... and other more complex variations where I used magic tokens to id my functions, but don't transfer well over IRC bot evaluation :)
23:01:33 <int-e> `` python3 -c"a = lambda x: lambda y: lambda z: x(z)(y(lambda _: z)); print(a(a(a(a(a))(a)))(a(a(a))(a))(lambda _: lambda _: lambda _: 42)([])([])([]))"
23:01:34 <HackEso> 42
23:03:00 <int-e> (the extra lambda _: avoid calling the `int` object; now it's calling that lambda instead)

23:04:07 <HackEso> ​['a', 'b', 'c', 42]
23:04:34 <int-e> and you can check that the lambdas don't come from the a(lpha) too.
23:05:12 <int-e> in any case, the diagnosis is still too much strictness :)
23:14:53 <salpynx> how does Haskell cope with that I(I)?
23:15:55 <int-e> What I have there is a symbolic evaluator that does leftmost outermost reduction.
23:17:06 <int-e> You could do the same thing in Python and it would cope with it just as well.
23:19:23 <int-e> as for how lazy evaluation works... there's special support for suspended computations deep down in Haskell's implementation (STG, the spineless, tagless G-machine; there's papers)
23:20:09 <salpynx> sorry, just going back to "Note how there's a `0^... just before the last line, that gets erased in the final step?"  You mean the line "^`^1```0^```α`ααα^2^....." ?
23:20:31 <int-e> yes
23:21:27 <int-e> that 0 refers to the outermost lambda, so you will have put a 0: int there.
23:21:32 <salpynx> I noticed when I ran I(fn) where fn was something that printed to stdout, it got called 5 times (IIRC)
23:25:14 <salpynx> ah, and the other variation of the strangeness that I think I'm seeing is that I(SKS) appears to be an infinite loop, without errors. While I(SKK) gives me the max recursion error.
23:29:27 <salpynx> so it's just down to lazy evaluation sidestepping an infinite loop? ... and python falls into it for not being lazy?
23:30:51 <salpynx> That seems less mysterious, if that's the case.
