04:10:58skrylar[m]woo. pure-nim bmessage encoding
04:12:09leorizeAraq: do you want to get the js backend tested on travis?
04:25:30skrylar[m]kind of wonder how offensive this encoding format is
04:25:32Zevvvarriount: sweet, got something working I asssume?
04:27:01skrylar[m]its basically forth-esque.. a single seq of bytes that gets stretched to hold the packet, it just kinda shoves the headers+keys in to one big blob and then has internal pointers to navigate around. downside is there's a pointer for each field but you can build it in random order without a lot of shuffling :think
04:27:21skrylar[m]can probably trim it a little by forcing 32-bit ointers because you're not going to have messages that big
04:39:01Zevvuntil someone does :)
04:39:25skrylar[m]its possible
04:39:29Zevvvarints
04:39:40skrylar[m]most broker systems choke long before megabyte messages
04:40:27Zevvfcourse
04:41:01skrylar[m]i was originally going to use varints, and had this little format written down in a doc, but when i sat down to write it ... i basically just ended up with a forth/flatbuffer hybrid, which allows random-writing. the overhead is slightly unfortunate though

04:41:31Zevvdon't optimize if you dont need to.
04:41:41ZevvDo you use pointers or just indexes?
04:42:03skrylar[m]indexes, kind of
04:42:17skrylar[m]they are soft pointers in that they are indeed pointers, but they are relative to the buffer start
04:43:00skrylar[m]it would not be unreasonable to set them at 16-bit
04:43:23Zevv65k is not that much
04:43:35skrylar[m]how much data are you shuttling about a button press
04:44:19Zevvwait until someone connects a cam to see who pressed the button
04:45:16skrylar[m]under be/haiku that is addressed by making a clipboard or a media node that handled it and sending a message telling the recipient which clipboard to use
04:45:25skrylar[m](which also appears to be how nats/nsq/rabbit get used)
04:50:56skrylar[m]there is another model i could use that i almost went with where it doesn't have the pointers but if you try to append to an array that was already encoded it has to shuffle the buffer around to make room
04:51:14skrylar[m]which as long as your messages arent constructed in a pathological way works

06:16:03FromGitter<Varriount> My problem ATM is finding an alternative to non-greedy STRING_CHARS
06:17:23*nsf joined #nim
06:18:21Zevvwhat's your problem here - you want to match anything up to the ", right?
06:22:07FromGitter<Varriount> Zevv: the STRING_DATA pattern captures the `$` in `"data${sub}"`
06:22:15FromGitter<Varriount> And continues
06:22:21Zevvwell, yes :)
06:24:39Zevvmove the '+' repeat one level up
06:25:37Zevvso instead of +STRING_CHARS, do +(COMMAND_SUB | VARIABLE_SUB | STRING_CHAR)
06:27:10Zevvand your WORD_CHAR is too trigger happy, it will eat the trailing ')'
06:27:49Zevvhttp://p.zevv.nl/?9c42 this works for your sample input

06:30:28sealmoveGood morning. I wonder if ref counting is implemented yet, because the 4th example from https://nim-lang.org/araq/ownedrefs.html compiles normally, but I think it should exit with error.
06:31:26*laaron joined #nim
06:31:51FromGitter<Varriount> Zevv: I would have preferred that STRING_CHAR be composed of more than one character, but I guess this works
06:32:38Zevvwell, you can make that work, but then you'd have to exlude the $
06:32:47Zevvand allow it to be put in escaped
06:33:57Zevv~look at the json example for escaping
06:38:05Zevvhttp://p.zevv.nl/?3069 without escaping, /me is away now

06:47:09leorizesealmove: it's implemented
06:47:14leorizeyou should file a bug report
06:51:13sealmovebut... this is kind of the most simplistic example
06:54:15leorizedoesn't mean Araq remembers to implement it :p
06:58:19sealmovehum, maybe we should better try to document what works and what doesn't, instead of filing "bugs".

13:03:46*luis_ joined #nim
13:08:25vivusxace: when I use the marshal module, it works, but I see what the issue might be. the exporting to JSON creates very deep nesting
13:13:33*smitop joined #nim
13:13:40smitopHow do I convert between `seq`s and `array`s?
13:16:16smitopI've looked through `sequtils`, am I missing something?
13:16:32Zevvyou can convert an array to a seq with @
13:16:55Zevvthe other way around is not possible, since the (fixed size) memory allocation for an array is determined at compile time
13:27:21*apodo joined #nim
13:27:37xacevivus: the json you provided is that even valid json?
13:28:20vivusxace: in the paste, that is not JSON. that is the output of `echo mytable`
13:29:00vivusthe program doesn't compile and gives an error when I try to convert mytable to JSON
13:29:33Zevvit looks like a json object with Nim-serialized tuples
13:30:41*Vladar joined #nim
13:30:47Zevvvivus: use %* instead
13:30:57Zevvhttps://nim-lang.github.io/Nim/json.html#%25%2A.m%2Cuntyped
13:32:03Zevvwell, no, ignore that
13:36:04vivusZevv: already tried that
13:36:25ZevvI never tried, but I expect json is not able to handle tuples at all
13:36:52vivusZevv: also, I added how I initialized my table in the code. it is a string and tuple of strings
13:38:26ZevvI just now see this: var main_table = newTable[string, (string, seq[string])]()
13:38:40ZevvI'm afraid that is not trivially jsonified
13:39:07Zevvbut I guess it is worth a bug report
13:40:09*ShalokShalom quit (Remote host closed the connection)
13:42:16Zevvyeah, the implementation of % for tables is not complete
13:42:30Zevvit does not recursively jsonify the table contents
13:46:28vivusZevv: so it just looks at the first level to JSONify things?
13:47:01Zevvyeah, and also you can not convert tuples to json, so it is a double issue. still looking into it
13:47:40vivusinteresting. Besides CSV and JSON, what other format can I export from a table to?
13:48:28Zevvok, your problem is the tuples
13:48:32Zevvchange your code to something like this:
13:48:39Zevvhttp://p.zevv.nl/?e809
13:49:45vivusty. I will refactor it now. might take a bit of a while, but if it helps get the right export format, that works for me
13:50:52ZevvI'm not sure what tuple semantics in json actually should be, the docs do not seem to explicitly mention this, but I guess it is problematic at least
13:52:36Zevvhttps://github.com/nim-lang/Nim/pull/10010
13:52:38vivusZevv: how do I initialize an empty object? I currently have: `mytable[p.row[0]] = (p.row[2], @[])`
13:58:05Zevvo = Foo()

14:17:30FromGitter<liquid600pgm> is it possible to parse an indentation-based language using NPeg (or any PEG, really)?
14:21:50FromDiscord_<DeltaPHC> Speaking in general terms, whitespace in grammar shouldn't be a problem. Whether the indentation is *correct* could be done in a separate step from lexing
14:23:19FromDiscord_<DeltaPHC> You just have to preserve the whitespace
14:24:55FromDiscord_<DeltaPHC> You could make significant whitespace its own token
14:28:25FromGitter<liquid600pgm> I thought doing it the way Nim does it is really clever (the indentation level is stored in tokens themselves)
14:30:08*vlad1777d quit (Ping timeout: 272 seconds)
14:30:50FromDiscord_<DeltaPHC> It's not too hard to think about if you look at the code as just a stream of bytes
14:31:58FromDiscord_<DeltaPHC> A stream of bytes with lots of space characters
14:32:14FromGitter<liquid600pgm> hmm, I'll think about it for a little more
14:32:58FromGitter<liquid600pgm> does NPeg support Unicode?

14:49:29Zevvliquid600pgm: you could lex the indents as any token, but I'm not sure if there is a proper way to use it as part of the grammar
14:49:41ZevvYou'd need more state for that
14:50:12ZevvUnicode is not explicitly supported, as I am not sure to what level it would need support.
14:50:39ZevvThe tests have an example for matching unicode characters
14:51:15Zevvbut for *real* support, much more would be needed. For example, the character classes like Upper and Lower need to become unicode aware. Not really a technical problem, but it would kill performance.
14:51:35Zevvso for now I decided not to put it in - although it is a good idea to mention that in the README
14:53:10Zevvand I'm not accurate: you can do *UTF-8* explicitly

14:58:38Guest93678Hello, I am trying to use nimgl's imgui bindings but I've encountered some issues. There's an option that compiles imgui in source so you don't need a shared lib but it seems broken. I want to fix it but I am unsure how. See this issue I made: https://github.com/lmariscal/nimgl/issues/19
15:00:59Guest93678What I've gathered is that the c function declaration that is defined by the nimgl bindings is slightly different from the cimgui.h declaration.

18:13:31Araqso ... anybody knows about case object transitions?
18:13:57Araqbecause I solved this language design puzzle. After X years...
18:14:34FromGitter<liquid600pgm> you mean changing an object's variant? ⏎ ⏎ ```type ⏎ Kind = enum ⏎ kA``` [https://gitter.im/nim-lang/Nim?at=5cead78a7c363c75a7498d4d]
18:15:56Araqyes
18:17:04FromGitter<liquid600pgm> I've known about them for a while, but never used them (because I didn't need to)
18:17:15FromGitter<liquid600pgm> what did you change in their design?
18:17:47FromDiscord_<DeltaPHC> IMO, the issue seems to be in treating the variant as a regular field
18:18:42deech_Araq, what problem did you fix. Does the above example not compile now?
18:19:18Araqwell I'm still implementing it
18:21:13deech_Awesome.
18:21:38Araqbut the idea is that assignments to the 'kind' field are invalid at runtime, as before
18:21:49Araqbut the existing loophole is closed
18:22:10*al_ quit (Quit: al_)
18:22:28deech_But can't it be caught at compile time?
18:23:07Araqto do a branch switch, replace the object completely inplace, like so: obj[] = Obj(k: newBranch, fields)
18:23:21*lritter joined #nim
18:23:27Araqdeech_: no, that would be too restrictive
18:24:15FromGitter<liquid600pgm> what do you mean "restrictive"? it throws a runtime error anyways, and the earlier an error is caught the better
18:24:17deech_Araq, interesting. There are legitimate use cases for changing the 'kind' of an object dynamically?
18:24:34AraqI do it everywhere in Nim's compiler
18:25:13Araqliquid600pgm: I mean preventing it at compile-time would be too restrictive.
18:25:57FromGitter<liquid600pgm> I understood what you meant, I just don't get why it would be too restrictive since it throws an error at runtime anyways
18:26:54AraqI don't understand you.
18:27:14FromGitter<liquid600pgm> > the idea is that assignments to the 'kind' field are invalid at runtime, as before
18:27:31FromGitter<liquid600pgm> I understood this as "assigning to the kind field throws a runtime error"
18:27:33deech_Just did a grep on '.kind =' and I'm seeing a lot of comparisons like, 'a.kind = b.kind' but not much direct manipulation. I do see you creating programatically creating nodes using those value though.
18:27:53deech_s/'a.kind = b.kind'/'a.kind == b.kind'/
18:29:52deech_Btw, is 'kind' a special name or can it be any field the user chooses?
18:30:27FromGitter<liquid600pgm> it's a regular field, so any name is valid
18:31:01deech_Interesting. That makes things harder to detect at compile time.
18:31:02ZevvHow does this fit together with system.reset()?
18:31:37FromGitter<liquid600pgm> deech_: not really, you still know it's a variant because of the `case field: Type`
18:31:46Araqdeech_:
18:31:50Araqproc myreset(n: var TFullReg) = reset(n)
18:31:50Araqtemplate ensureKind(k: untyped) {.dirty.} =
18:31:50Araq if regs[ra].kind != k:
18:31:52Araq myreset(regs[ra])
18:31:54Araq regs[ra].kind = k
18:31:56Araqin compiler/vm.nim
18:32:31Araqthe VM depends on this feature. but eventually we'll find workarounds, at least the loophole is gone for other Nim code then :P
18:32:51AraqZevv: system.reset() doesn't allow you to switch object branches
18:33:09deech_Yeah, that's a huge step up. Maybe it's the job of a linter to flag assignments to discriminators.
18:33:10Araqafter this change.
18:33:36Araqyup, assignments to discriminators could be flagged as bad

18:39:05Mister_Magisterhttpclient returns in response image file and i want to save it. How can i do it?
18:41:26ZevvMister_Magister: http://p.zevv.nl/?9e9d
18:41:47Mister_Magisteroh thanks!
18:44:48FromDiscord_<DeltaPHC> Hm. In other languages, the variant is part of the object construction and the discriminator isn't directly accessible. `let a = MyThing::SomeVariant(data); a = MyThing::AnotherVariant(data)`
18:44:54FromGitter<liquid600pgm> Zevv: is there any way of referencing a capture in NPeg? like in regex you can do `(\w+)\s\1` to match pairs of the same word
18:45:02FromDiscord_<DeltaPHC> Is Nim's object variant design out of keeping it minimal?
18:45:19Zevvliquid600pgm: nope
18:46:01Zevvdidn't need it yet, so didn't add it yet. not sure if it would be easy or hard to
18:46:16FromGitter<liquid600pgm> could it be a feature, or does it go against NPeg's design philosophy?
18:46:29FromGitter<liquid600pgm> I could try to implement it
18:46:44Zevvthere's no philosophy here, so I don't see why not
18:47:24AraqDeltaPHC: it was heavily inspired by Ada, not ML as I considered it way more flexible
18:47:34Araqit didn't age all that well though :P
18:48:04Zevvcaptures are a bit more powerful then in regexpes (can be nested, for example), so not sure if there is a robust way to refer to a capture, but I'll take a look
18:48:21Araqbut it is more flexible than what the other langs do. It's also not as safe, not a big surprise here.
18:48:58FromGitter<liquid600pgm> Zevv: I was saying "design philosophy" referring to this definition, btw: https://opensource.guide/best-practices/#write-down-your-projects-vision
18:49:10FromGitter<liquid600pgm> so "your project's vision"
18:51:30ZevvMy vision is that usually "things seemed like a good idea", and I'm usually wrong. So I just try to make the best of it :) But if I had a vision, where would I put that down?
18:52:30FromGitter<liquid600pgm> probably at the beginning of your readme, eg. "MyEngine is a minimal game engine focused on a simple drawing API"
18:52:45Zevvhm ok, I'll give it a think
18:53:20FromGitter<liquid600pgm> by the way, what does the `@P` operator do? "search for P" is a pretty unclear definition
18:53:21Mister_MagisterZevv: what if i have line like this await newAsyncHttpClient().get(api_file & file_path) and i want to save response from that to file
18:53:45ZevvMister_Magister: await the body and write that
18:53:54Mister_Magisterbut how to write that body

18:59:04FromGitter<liquid600pgm> I like the way you throw parse errors in NPeg
18:59:39ZevvI don't. it's not robust, because if you make your grammar wrong it throws when it could backtrace
19:00:12ZevvI read this thing tons of times, but I don't understand it: https://github.com/zevv/npeg/blob/master/doc/Exception_Handling_for_Error_Reporting_in_Parsing_Expression_Grammars.pdf
19:01:32FromGitter<liquid600pgm> your library is the first PEG lib I've seen that allows you to define custom syntax error messages instead of something along the lines of "Expected '(' or [a-zA-Z_]"

19:14:07FromGitter<liquid600pgm> is it possible to return something from a parse rule? like ⏎ ⏎ ```code paste, see link``` [https://gitter.im/nim-lang/Nim?at=5ceae57ead024978c632bd32]
19:14:19FromGitter<liquid600pgm> or do I have to use a separate stack for that?
19:15:33ZevvI've been trying various mechanisms for that, but there is no single best way that fits all use cases.
19:15:58FromGitter<liquid600pgm> fine then, I'll use a stack to manage those results then
19:16:00ZevvIf you return there, what should npeg do with it?
19:16:23FromGitter<liquid600pgm> yeah I was thinking about that now and I agree with you
19:16:43ZevvI'd love to do conversion like parseFloat there, but captures are string only at this time. You can capture to JSON though, if that suits you
19:16:55FromGitter<liquid600pgm> I'm used to PEG.js where this is the obvious thing that's done
19:17:10Zevvyeah, same with me and lpeg. Duck typing makes some things easier
19:17:14FromGitter<liquid600pgm> but that's due to the dynamic nature of JS
19:17:19Zevvand Lua
19:17:28FromGitter<liquid600pgm> yes
19:18:09FromGitter<liquid600pgm> as I learned recently from my adventures with Lua and game dev, dynamic typing is sometimes your worst debugging nightmare
19:18:25FromGitter<liquid600pgm> yet sometimes it's super useful
19:19:09ZevvWell, yes and no. I've done *tons* of lua over the last 12 years as it was my main langauge in a number of projects. But the biggest reason to drop it in the end was indeed the lack of typing and compile time checking. Enters Nim
19:21:07ZevvOne other issue with npeg is that you can't pass user state trough the parser, so everything done in the code blocks needs to be available before the PEG definition. Not a horrenduous showstopper, but it would be nice to be able to pass your own thingy and access that from within the callbacks.
19:21:16*rnrwashere joined #nim
19:21:26ZevvI have an implementation that fixes that, but I hate the notation and API, so didn't make it in
19:21:41FromGitter<liquid600pgm> yeah I just create the Parser in a separate `parseScript` proc
19:21:54FromGitter<liquid600pgm> that allows me to have a distinct state, but it's not perfect

20:02:57FromGitter<liquid600pgm> Zevv: shouldn't it be possible to implement Unicode support in NPeg using the `unicode` module and `Rune`?
20:03:14FromGitter<liquid600pgm> so that instead of matching a string, we match a `seq[Rune]`?
20:07:47ZevvProbably, but performance, I wouldnt want that to be the default. But maybe it can be genericized, that would be a pretty solution
20:10:04Zevvotoh, I'm not yet sure of the practical benefit. As long as your utf-8 is normalized, that will already "just work"

21:24:24FromGitter<jrfondren> yep, you're passing uint64.max

21:25:43FromGitter<jrfondren> ot
21:25:45FromGitter<jrfondren> it's -1
21:25:53FromGitter<jrfondren> which is uint64.max
21:27:03FromGitter<jrfondren> what you're expecting is 255
21:27:32FromGitter<jrfondren> which is what you get with uint8(0)
21:29:06FromGitter<jrfondren> I get sign-extension is always mildly confusing, but what Nim does is reasonable since you're starting with a signed type
21:30:03FromGitter<kayabaNerve> I just want to get an int with all its bits set to 1 for 8/16/32. I don't see how 8 1 bits would equiv 64 1 bits.
21:30:31FromGitter<jrfondren> use uintX(0) then for those
21:31:33FromGitter<kayabaNerve> You're recommending `int(uint(0))` ?
21:31:45FromGitter<kayabaNerve> I can't use an uint in rand so I do need the result to be an int :P
21:31:54FromGitter<jrfondren> to go from -1.int8 to uint64, you could go int8->int64->uint64, or you could go int8->uint8->uint64. The first way asks "what's a good signed int64 value to map a -1.uint8 to?" and the answer's obviously -1.int64, which is then all bits set uint64, or uint64.max
21:32:15FromGitter<jrfondren> I'm recommending not(uint8(0))
21:33:03FromGitter<kayabaNerve> Got it. Thank you.
21:33:09FromGitter<kayabaNerve> I see the issue now.
21:33:18FromGitter<kayabaNerve> An int 0 has half of its bytes set.
21:33:29FromGitter<kayabaNerve> To be clear though. I'm not doing anything with 64 bit ints
21:33:32FromGitter<kayabaNerve> I cap at 32
21:33:48FromGitter<jrfondren> yeah the conversion happens in rand
21:34:42FromGitter<jrfondren> arguably rand()'s signature is wrong. it's `proc rand(max: int): int` but it passes `max` as-is to the second parameter of `proc rand(r: var Rand; max: Natural): int`
21:35:00FromGitter<jrfondren> -1 is an OK `int`. it's out of bounds as a `Natural`
