01:45:41FromGitter<iffy> I'm getting a "Bad file descriptor" error with an asyncnet server. The error is raised during a `poll()` invocation. It happens just after I close an AsyncSocket client socket (but not right at the point that I close it). Full traceback and some relevant code here: https://gist.github.com/iffy/4cd33aaa7af421fe37759570178c10ec
01:47:21disruptekiffy: most likely because an exception is raised and the server pukes on it.
01:47:50disrupteknothing you can do about it but nag dom96, who maintains that this is desirable behavior. see my pr.
01:47:58FromGitter<iffy> How can I find where the exception is being raised?
01:48:11disruptekit doesn't matter, there's nothing you can do but catch it.
01:48:23FromGitter<iffy> so it's not my code that's causing the error?
01:48:29disruptekcorrect.
01:48:42FromGitter<iffy> in that case: dom96: nag, nag, nag
01:49:23FromGitter<iffy> disruptek: have a link to your PR?
01:49:52disruptekhttps://github.com/nim-lang/Nim/pull/12325
01:50:10disruptekunlikely to be the same code, but likely to be the same problem.
01:51:30FromGitter<iffy> okay, yeah, that PR is for http specifically, and I'm using AsyncSocket directly
01:51:39FromGitter<iffy> and NOT doing HTTP
01:51:39disruptekunlikely to be the same code, but likely to be the same problem.
02:16:46FromGitter<iffy> On further testing, the error is only raised if I call AsyncSocket.close() myself
02:17:22disruptekbut it's raised in the server loop, yes?
02:19:59FromGitter<iffy> It's raised in my call to `poll()`
02:20:01FromGitter<iffy> yes
02:20:22disruptekso, this is the same problem.
02:21:33disruptekanyway, you are encouraged to submit a pr. i actually don't use this code; my pr was just to help out zedeus.
02:21:36FromGitter<iffy> But I don't think the solution is to catch "Bad file descriptor" in my code... I think `poll()` or maybe `AsyncSocket` needs to change
02:21:41FromGitter<iffy> okay
02:22:00disruptekyes, the problem is that an exception shouldn't crash the main loop of the server.
02:22:21disruptekunfortunately, there is likely no way to write such a server due to private procs.
02:22:50FromGitter<iffy> I think there are two problems: 1. an exception shouldn't crash the main loop of the server and 2. AsyncSocket or whatever is causing this particular exception, should stop causing this exception
02:23:55FromGitter<gogolxdong> Is there a benchmark proc in Nim?
02:24:05disrupteki agree, but it's going to be a much harder sell to change the API to merely report an error versus raising an exception.
02:24:50disruptekgogolxdong: not yet, but you can add one to this: https://github.com/disruptek/golden
02:25:59FromGitter<iffy> I think I'm saying, I want to fix this particular error so it doesn't even happen. There will be no report and no exception. In python "bad file descriptor" happens when you `os.close(somefd)` twice. I suspect that's what's happening here
02:26:52disruptekcould be, but the thing is, async can yield exceptions for myriad reasons.
02:27:35disruptekhere's the example zedeus created: https://github.com/zedeus/jester-example
02:28:26*theelous3 quit (Ping timeout: 240 seconds)
02:28:34FromGitter<iffy> okay, maybe I can make a sscce that uses only asyncnet

07:03:49AraqC89 but mostly "The C that GCC/Clang and Visual C++ support"
07:04:22Araqthe standards are unusable when you read them carefully enough

07:22:08FromGitter<gogolxdong> By default the Nim compiler generates a large amount of runtime checks ⏎ aiming for your debugging pleasure. With ``-d:release`` some checks are ⏎ `turned off and optimizations are turned on` , iirc, -d:release changes.
07:23:34FromGitter<gogolxdong> turns on all runtime checks?
07:25:27PMunchI think the disabling of most runtime checks have now moved to -d:danger

07:50:30FromGitter<gogolxdong> I'm doing a video to introduce what can Nim do, we have our production as server dev and web frontend dev and a working Vulkan demo as demostration, lacking of embedded dev , AI and games. Any good ideas?
07:51:24FromGitter<gogolxdong> @narimiran thanks, it's helpful.
07:52:24PMunchHmm, I don't know any large games written in Nim. But you can always use one of the recent Game Jam games :)

08:08:54AraqPMunch, thew new neverwinter nights backend is written in Nim
08:10:15planetis[m]omg he is using Windows (TM) theme in xfce (or something) linux
08:10:24planetis[m]...I am having flashbacks
08:11:08PMunchAraq, oh the back-end is actually written in Nim? Cool
08:11:16PMunchI thought they were just using it for internal tools
08:11:26PMunchplanetis[m], yeah it appears so..
08:11:49PMunchI was first wondering why he was still using Windows 98 :P
08:12:17PMunchHmm, would you be able to run Nim on Win98? I don't see why not, but potentially something has broken
08:14:15Araqwe try to support Windows XP but no promises about that
08:14:50Araqnobody should run Win98 IMO
08:16:06livcdWhat If I want to run Nim on an ATM ?

08:18:28PMunchDo they do some sort of 3rd party updates to it? Or is it just a horrible insecure mess?
08:18:38livcdhorrible insecure mess

08:34:40FromDiscord<Kiloneie> Guys, which package is the best so far for GUI in Nim ? There seems to be quite a few, one wxNim by Araq, one by PMunch, then there is wNim... Which one works best etc ?
08:35:05*sagax quit (Remote host closed the connection)
08:35:32FromDiscord<juan_carlos> On `db_postgres.prepare()` whats `stmtName` used for?, just debug?, because other proc that take `SqlPrepared` dont need that string.
08:35:58Araqjuan_carlos: that might exist for compat with the other db_* modules
08:36:11FromGitter<gogolxdong> We have WPS Office comparable Microsoft Office, but most people uses Microsoft Office. There isn't much difference on Windows but on Web.
08:36:57FromGitter<gogolxdong> We have every comparable to Google, Facebook, youtube, Twitter
08:37:08FromDiscord<juan_carlos> Thanks <Araq>
08:37:41FromGitter<gogolxdong> even github.com, github.com is limited.
08:38:21AraqKiloneie: it mostly depends on your app, many apps are built around a single "widget" that decides for you, for example an audio player needs a "play audio" component
08:38:35*ng0 joined #nim
08:39:11*me7 quit (Remote host closed the connection)
08:39:43Araqthere are few UI libs that support almost everything, I think wxWidgets and Qt can do it. Maybe GTK too.
08:39:46PMunchKiloneie, depends on what you mean by "best"
08:40:47FromDiscord<Kiloneie> let's say most documented and tested ?...
08:41:03livcdgogolxdong: I meant desktop apps that you use. Like Wechat Work etc
08:41:09FromGitter<gogolxdong> yeah, we have QQ for instant messaging.
08:41:28PMunchWell my wxNim fork wraps wxWidgets, which has been used for many years and is thoroughly tested and documented
08:41:46PMunchAs far as the wrapping goes however it's not been tested that rigourously
08:41:47FromDiscord<Kiloneie> the one by you or Araq ?, i see 2
08:42:10PMunchThe one by me, I forked it to add some stuff, and essentially just took over maintaining it
08:42:22PMunchNot sure if Araqs version can even run on modern Nim
08:42:52FromDiscord<Kiloneie> aha okay, thanks
08:43:04*sagax joined #nim
08:43:34livcdwe can all try to write some example app and compare
08:43:39livcdre GUI
08:44:06FromGitter<gogolxdong> most personal and office computer uses windows 10 now, only some embedded and supermarket cashier system uses XP.
08:44:26FromDiscord<Kiloneie> Well some people asked me to make some for tutorial, so i guess imma do some GUI stuff, which should go outside my current video series.
08:45:01PMunchlivcd, certainly a possibility
08:45:40FromDiscord<Kiloneie> Imma try a few and see which one i find the easiest that also works as it should etc.
08:45:54livcdKiloneie: i dunno desktop apps can be very different
08:46:59FromGitter<gogolxdong> @Kiloneie are you the one who is doing youtube tutorial series, it's great and helpful, can we share them to our youtube?
08:47:00FromGitter<alehander42> so now with ffi support for the vm
08:47:03FromGitter<alehander42> when its enabled
08:47:14FromGitter<alehander42> should it be able to import all kinds of system stuff like `os`
08:48:03FromGitter<alehander42> i guess it enables calling importc functions etc, so this is all that is needed in theory right
08:48:07FromDiscord<Kiloneie> Yeah i am, and yes you can.
08:48:36FromGitter<gogolxdong> We have followed to the lastest, is it 10?
08:48:39livcdKilonie: PMunch: the question is. Do you want to have a nice looking desktop app or are you making an ugly looking desktop form ?
08:48:46FromDiscord<juan_carlos> Theres also a GUIBuilder thing on Nimble.
08:48:49FromDiscord<Kiloneie> the version in tutorials is 1.0
08:49:04FromGitter<alehander42> @timotheecour maybe i ping you
08:49:19FromGitter<gogolxdong> the 10th tutorial
08:49:21FromDiscord<Kiloneie> I guess nice looking ?
08:49:48livcdThen you are stuck with a very few frameworks that are all commercial AFAIK
08:50:14FromDiscord<Kiloneie> you can share my videos however you want, what you can't do is take a video and post it on your channel.
08:50:22PMunchDepends on your definition of ugly..
08:50:40PMunchI personally prefer most of my apps to use Gtk so that they will stick to the theme off my machine..
08:51:02FromDiscord<Kiloneie> So far wNim seems pretty decent.
08:51:14livcdwell gtk is ugly...are there any nice looking gtk apps ?
08:51:25PMunchwNim is pretty nice if you want to only make Windows apps
08:51:39PMunchlivcd, Gtk isn't ugly, but there are plenty of ugly Gtk themes..
08:51:39livcdPMunch: my definition of nice: https://www.glasswire.com/
08:51:59FromDiscord<Kiloneie> Oh yeah... didn't think about cross platform
08:52:02Araqyou can use wNim + Wine :P
08:52:09livcdvisually appealing
08:52:11PMunchAraq, hooray..
08:52:38livcdglasswire is using QT as far as I know
08:52:39Araqhey, it's only fair, they also try to trick me into Cygwin crap all the time

11:23:12FromDiscord<Rika> if so, damn
11:23:42krux02Rika: sorry, unpacking is only for tuples.
11:23:50lqdev[m]I don't recall seeing this in the manual
11:24:07FromDiscord<Rika> hmm prolly can make a macro for this
11:24:12lqdev[m]so you'll have to either unpack a tuple or directly assign variables
11:24:21krux02I wrote a macro once, where I could do pattern matching for ast nodes as well, because that was my most important use case for pattern matching.
11:24:43FromDiscord<Rika> im not that good at macros just yet lmao

11:47:35PMunchhttps://irclogs.nim-lang.org/08-10-2019.html#11:40:24
11:47:57clyybberI saw that. But it only applies to the website.
11:48:07clyybberIMO
11:49:43clyybberAraq: Why do we say that discriminators of case objects must be constant?
11:49:51PMunchHaha, yeah I was just making a joke
11:50:00clyybberAh, ok. I was worried
11:50:05clyybber:D
11:50:42PMunchProbably because you can't discriminate on something that's only available at runtime
11:51:02clyybberBut you actually can.
11:51:10clyybberI mean the field checks are done at runtime
11:51:26PMunchOh yeah
11:51:39PMunchBut the range of possible cases must be known at compile-time
11:52:12clyybberI'm asking because I'm implementing default object values and I could rely on the fact that those discriminators are constant and eliminate runtime overhead or I could initialize based on the runtime discriminator value.
11:52:17PMunchLike you can discriminate on an enum, since you know all the values an enum can take on compile-time
11:52:29clyybberYeah.
11:52:52clyybberBut does the discriminator itself have to be constant? Like the value, not the range/type?
11:53:01clyybberAFAICT from the manual it has to.

12:01:59clyybberWth, where does that invalid indentation error come from: https://play.nim-lang.org/#ix=1Y0N
12:02:22FromGitter<alehander42> I think they're should be constant
12:03:00FromGitter<alehander42> Wait do you mean the variable in case
12:03:35clyybberYeah
12:03:54clyybberOf course the type/range should be constant.
12:04:25clyybberalehander42: I mean the variable that determines which "branch" to take
12:05:15clyybberFeels so weird still stumbling over indentation errors after using the language so much
12:05:34clyybberEspecially if I can't figure it out.
12:06:01FromGitter<alehander42> You mean of a
12:06:10FromGitter<alehander42> A should be constants imo
12:06:32FromGitter<alehander42> I expect static dispatch
12:06:33clyybberYeah, the of branch things must be constants
12:06:45clyybberBut I mean the case d: Discriminator
12:06:47FromGitter<alehander42> Ah well the other one not
12:07:09FromGitter<alehander42> It couldn't work if only const
12:07:20FromGitter<alehander42> Maybe the manual defines discriminator
12:07:23FromGitter<alehander42> Differently
12:07:34clyybberYeah
12:07:43clyybberCan you figure out what the error in my snippet is?
12:07:48clyybberMaybe its a bug
12:07:52clyybberBut I really can't tell
12:09:28FromGitter<xflywind> indent error in 14 line, delete one space

12:19:29FromGitter<alehander42> I want to ask
12:19:41FromGitter<alehander42> Your default fields can't depends on other defaults
12:19:47FromGitter<alehander42> Or can they
12:24:12clyybberSo far not. But it could be possible to implement
12:24:31clyybberThe question is if it should be possible.
12:24:41clyybberIt still has to be determinable at compile time.
12:24:46FromGitter<alehander42> But can i access default values from macros
12:25:02FromGitter<alehander42> It is determinable indeed
12:25:11clyybberYou mean with a macro on a type section?
12:26:04FromGitter<alehander42> With eg type impl
12:26:18clyybberHmm
12:26:29clyybberI'm not sure. I haven't looked into that yet
12:26:59clyybberBut I think it should be possible. So if not I'm gonna patch it.
12:27:59clyybberBut when default field values can depend on other default field values and we want to fully support that, we are gonna have to use some reordering algorithm
12:29:02clyybberBut maybe its better to just support depending on previously defined default field values
12:29:43FromGitter<alehander42> Yeah i guess the default values can come later not sure if theyw
12:30:04FromGitter<alehander42> Are important, maybe you can just depend on types which are defined
12:31:29clyybberI think the gitter bot cur you off
12:31:34clyybbers/cur/cut
12:33:48FromGitter<Clyybber> Ah, nevermind
12:34:29FromGitter<alehander42> Just writing from phone sorry
12:40:27Araqclyybber, it's a tough problem, I'm thinking
12:43:05clyybberOn second thought I think IF we want to support depending on other default field values we should only depend on already defined ones.
12:44:14FromGitter<alehander42> Yes, thr same way you only depend on already defined types
12:44:40FromGitter<alehander42> Also one can aways offloaded shared defaults to consts
12:44:55clyybberYeah
12:45:17FromGitter<alehander42> But what about eg
12:45:45FromGitter<alehander42> Having any defaulted value that depends on on a generics argument is this possible
12:45:59FromGitter<alehander42> And overall can we have generic field defaults
12:46:26clyybberShould be possible
12:46:28clyybberIMO
12:46:34clyybberI have to test that though.

13:50:27FromGitter<alehander42> should this work (not very important if it does now)
13:50:49FromGitter<alehander42> name: string = $T.name
13:50:50FromGitter<alehander42> sorry
13:50:59clyybberSo you mean stuff like Node[N: static int]
13:51:05FromGitter<alehander42> for example yeah
13:51:06*adeohluwa left #nim (#nim)
13:51:08clyybberWhere a field can do f: int = N

13:51:17FromGitter<alehander42> yeah thats a better eample
13:51:22clyybberI don't know if it does thou
13:51:28clyybberBut if not
13:51:33clyybberI'll try to make it work
13:51:37FromGitter<alehander42> the important thing is the spec
13:51:45FromGitter<alehander42> implementation is always possible i guess
13:51:59FromGitter<alehander42> (i doubt there are blockers for that in particular)
13:52:14clyybberspec is boring :D
13:52:17Araqalehander42: the spec seems good enough, yes
13:52:37Araqand I think 'nil ref T' is the winning syntax (sorry, disruptek)
13:52:49FromGitter<alehander42> clyybber its not :P
13:52:56FromGitter<alehander42> Araq, and for `not nil` ?
13:53:17Araq'not nil' stays as it is, it's readable and already exists
13:53:29FromGitter<alehander42> ok
13:53:56Araqand it's consistent too, 'not' being a binary operator in this case
13:53:58FromGitter<alehander42> clyybber so overally if i have Node[T] = .. field: string = myOwnConstFunction(T)
13:54:04FromGitter<alehander42> this should work in theory?
13:54:07clyybberyeah
13:54:22clyybberbtw, case objects work now
13:54:32FromGitter<alehander42> Araq yeah the only thing is that one is prefix and one postfix

13:54:57clyybberIts in my TODO list
13:58:08FromDiscord<Kiloneie> @gogolxdong It takes me about 4 hours per video, about 40-60 min of recording, then i edit for 5-70 minutes, cutting any stumbles in my speech etc.
13:58:08FromDiscord<Kiloneie>
13:58:08FromDiscord<Kiloneie> Also if i were to make 1 video per week, i would get freaking bored and dissapointed with myself. And i would never get to my goal at that rate.
13:58:51narimiran@Kiloneie so i'm not the only one telling you to slow down ;)
13:59:36FromDiscord<Kiloneie> I have to ask, is the quality not good or getting worse since you guys keep asking me that 1 is 1 too many or something D: ?
13:59:46shashlickis devel broken? https://travis-ci.org/nimterop/nimterop/jobs/595112441#L735
14:00:37narimiran@Kiloneie as i told you: it is very heard too keep up with you. i stopped watching probably 4-5 videos ago
14:01:00FromDiscord<Kiloneie> Not my problem 😛
14:01:07FromDiscord<Kiloneie> Some people are begging for more

14:01:55FromDiscord<Kiloneie> xD
14:02:00FromDiscord<Rika> lqdev[m], i used that in the macro so yes i do
14:02:01FromDiscord<Kiloneie> that is kinda true
14:02:24FromDiscord<Rika> narimiran, thanks but i already made the macro. will consider moving to that though
14:02:53clyybbernarimiran: I don't think we are his target audience
14:02:56FromDiscord<Rika> (prolly should, because it's prolly by a more seasoned dev)
14:03:14clyybberIf I were to learn from video tutorials it would piss me off big to wait a week tho
14:03:24FromDiscord<Kiloneie> yeh that is my point...
14:03:25clyybberI would learn from something elsewhere then
14:04:01narimiranclyybber: there is something in between 1/day (or 2/day as @Kiloneie wants) and 1/week ;)
14:04:28Araqshashlick, clyybber broke it
14:04:35FromDiscord<Kiloneie> there kinda has to be no less than 1 per 2 days, otherwise people just might forget about you.
14:04:46clyybbershashlick: dammnit
14:04:53clyybberThe tests were green
14:05:01FromDiscord<Rika> Araq, did you mean they clyybbered it 😛
14:05:06narimiranand, as people already told @Kiloneie, if he has extra time to do more videos, he can record them 10 in one day if he wants, but then release them one by one

14:13:36clyybberUse [email protected]#head
14:13:40shashlickSee the full build job, same cligen works on other versions
14:13:52clyybberUse [email protected]#head
14:14:02shashlickSo was this a bug in cligen or Nim
14:14:17shashlickCouldn't this potentially break others too
14:14:32clyybbershashlick: I sent out PRs to all important_packages affected
14:15:00shashlickStill breaking change then
14:15:07clyybberYeah, and?
14:15:41clyybberdevel isn't stable
14:16:17clyybbershashlick: It was a "bug" in Nim. Nim defined csize as int, while it is actually uint. So I changed that.
14:16:26clyybberYou should be happy about that, as a wrapper guru
14:16:29clyybber:)
14:20:56FromGitter<mratsim> @Rika seasoned dev is probably a bad argument. I'm seasoned in Nim but that doesn't mean my stuff from 2 years ago is an example of good Nim code

14:27:48Araqwe should have deprecated system.csize instead
14:28:00Araqand introduced system.csize_t or something
14:28:44clyybberWhy? Nothing has been broken
14:29:00clyybberIt's just that shashlick was on an outdated cligen version
14:29:25clyybberAraq: I have also added a few mirror procs for backwards compatibility.
14:29:40clyybberWhich have a deprecated: csize is now uint message attached
14:29:49clyybberI don't see how we can do better.
14:30:07clyybberWith introducing new types over new types evertime we change something we just make a mess

14:33:11*skoude joined #nim
14:34:00Araqclyybber, plus the overloads you added are an admission that 'csize' as unsigned doesn't work too well and they repeat the original "mistake"
14:34:23FromDiscord<Rika> mratsim, i kinda meant "seasoned dev at the time it was written"
14:34:26Araqso instead of a "wrong" csize we know have "wrong" overloads in ansi_c.nim
14:34:35Araq*now
14:34:35clyybberWhich are deprecated
14:34:41clyybberSo they can be removed at some point
14:34:57Araqok, I missed that
14:35:21Araqsucks though, I prefer the signed versions, I have little need for "sizes" that wrap around
14:35:57clyybberHmm
14:36:27clyybberFor the general unsigned wrap around problem
14:36:56clyybberYou could actually have unsigned integers that don't wrap around
14:37:57clyybberIt's just that C never had that afaik
14:38:06*skoude quit (Ping timeout: 265 seconds)
14:39:31Araqyeah I'm happy with another integer family, intX, uintX, uintX_without_shit
14:39:42clyybberI would love that too.
14:40:28clyybberIts so weird that C never included that in the standard. Its so easy to implement too.
14:41:40clyybberArguably wrapping around is still more correct than going negative half way through
14:42:23Araqno. it's worse
14:42:31Araqat least negative values are not valid sizes
14:42:39Araqnor indexes.
14:42:59FromDiscord<Rika> you'd catch bugs earlier with not-wrapping
14:43:04FromDiscord<Rika> *certain bugs
14:43:41clyybberYeah, fair enough
14:43:51clyybberThe ideal would be uint without wrap
14:44:03Araqthe ideal is 'Natural'
14:44:08clyybberYeah
14:44:23clyybberWould be a cool feature for nim to have
14:44:31Araqwe have it
14:44:35clyybberI wonder how we'd implement it though
14:44:42clyybberAraq: Isn't our natural just int?
14:44:52AraqNatural = range[0..high(int)]
14:44:58*theelous3 joined #nim
14:45:14clyybberYeah. I mean it would be cool if our Natural would be a safe uint
14:45:20clyybbersafe/sane
14:45:24Araqnope
14:45:48clyybberwhy?
14:45:56Araq x < len - 3 <==> x + 3 < len
14:46:06Araqyou want to be able to do this transformation reliably
14:46:21Araqour Natural allows for this, Natural as 'uint' doesn't.
14:47:00Araqtranformations cry for "symmetry" and symmetry cried for negative numbers.
14:47:56clyybberHmm, good point. Do you mean transformations in the compiler or by the user?
14:48:06Araqboth.
14:48:16Araqeven if your "length can never be negative" negative numbers help a great deal. it's like trying to do quantum mechanics without complex numbers.
14:48:43Araqyeah, we know, you cannot take the sqrt of -1, complex numbers rule though.
14:49:18clyybberAraq: But arent those transformations if done by the user in todays Nim invalid anyways?
14:50:02Araqhow so? because stuff gets weird approaching high(int)? (overflow)
14:50:41clyybberNo because natural is defined as range[0..hight(int)]. The compiler checks that it doesn't go below zero, right?
14:50:42*navinmistry joined #nim
14:50:53Araqright
14:51:16Araqbut '-' is not defined on Natural, it's defined on 'int'
14:51:28Araqso the conversions then make it ok
14:51:40Araqand the conversion is lossless
14:51:57clyybberAh, ok. Yeah that makes sense.
14:53:22clyybberThough it kind of goes against the point of Natural IMO.
14:53:36*actuallybatman joined #nim
14:54:41clyybberI mean you could have Natural be uintsafe and have a `-` for Natural. Users wouldn't be able to do x < len - 3 in some cases. But arguably they shouldn't be able to anyways.
14:54:57Araqyeah there is quite some sophistry involved here, in the end C# uses 'int' and works and C++/C uses 'uint' and doesn't work.
14:55:21clyybberBecause C++ and C are using their wrap around uints.
14:55:56Araqnot only that, because uint loses symmetry in its basic math operations
14:55:59*navinmistry quit (Remote host closed the connection)
14:56:18clyybberYeah, which is kind of the point of it, I guess.
14:56:20Araqalternatively you can disallow '-' for unsigned, it would work too, I did the analysis
14:56:31Araqbut I like '-'
14:56:53clyybberI do too.
14:57:20*navinmistry joined #nim
14:57:35Araqthe one thing that 'int' really does wrong is that -low(int) doesn't exist
14:57:50Araqso 'abs' is not sound
14:58:00Araqand all hell breaks lose
14:58:20AraqI would have mapped 'low(int)' to a NaN
14:58:39clyybberSaturated arithmetic isn't commutative either right?
14:58:53clyybbers/commutative/symmetrical?
14:59:17clyybberAraq: Whats a NaN for integer though?
14:59:17Araqhmm I think "sticky" saturated arithmetic is
14:59:29Araqwhat's a NaN for floating point?
15:00:34clyybberfamiliar properties like associativity and distributivity may fail in saturation arithmetic. This makes it unpleasant to deal with in abstract mathematics
15:00:45clyybberthats what wikipedia says about saturated arithmetic
15:01:05clyybberI couldn't find the "sticky" variant
15:01:21AraqI invented it, I guess...
15:01:35clyybberBut I assume it just uses the negative half for integers for counting the overflow
15:01:35*navinmistry quit (Remote host closed the connection)
15:02:08Araqno, "sticky" means that high(int) is like Inf and Inf - 1 is still Inf
15:02:16*navinmistry joined #nim
15:02:29clyybberAh.
15:02:45Araqthere is an "error mode" and you cannot really perform any arithmetic on it after that
15:03:23clyybberOk. So it's also not really symmetric
15:04:05clyybberIn that way it is similar to a uintsafe. Except that it will be in error mode and uintsafe will fail early
15:05:39Araqit's "symmetric" enough in my experience. the only problem is that there are preferable groupings
15:06:01Araqx + (1 - 1) is better than (x + 1) - 1
15:06:24Araqbut that's actually quite common in math already
15:06:33clyybberYeah so the same as x < len - 3 vs x + 3 < len
15:06:39Araqthink about infinite sums and what you're allowed to do with them
15:06:57clyybberMath would "error" at compile time :P
15:08:28Araqwell probably you need some leeway in the spec
15:09:01Araqbut with clear rules that try to preserve symmetry it works much better than "oh and btw, x + 1 can turn back into 0"
15:09:32Araq"and of course the Linux kernel now relies on this, everywhere, good luck proving stuff correct"
15:09:36clyybberYeah
15:09:46clyybberBut even better x + 1 errors when too big
15:10:13clyybberI think that Natural as a uintsafe wouldn't be so bad
15:10:43clyybberAfter all you probably use Natural because you want Natural
15:11:35Araqwell I also want minus to work as reliably as the other arithmetic operations
15:11:53Araqand that rules out 'uint'.
15:12:04Araqhttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Unum_(number_format) related but for floating point
15:12:11clyybberExcept when Natural would be a generic
15:12:44clyybberLike Natural = range[0..high(int)] | range[0..high(uintsafe)]
15:12:58clyybberwhere the first range is an int range and the second an uintsafe range
15:13:00Araqsilly
15:13:55*absolutejam4 quit (Ping timeout: 268 seconds)
15:15:01clyybberAraq: Actually you can have `-` working on uintsafe and keep the symmetry. Just make `-` return an int :p
15:15:35clyybberNevermind
15:15:45clyybberNot a lossless conversion..
15:17:02clyybberUnum are posits right?
15:17:58clyybberI heard they are more performant too. Though most hardware still lacks their implementation.

15:20:10Araq:D
15:21:46Araqgood thing we're doing a better job at this
15:21:52clyybberAnother case for quirky exceptions
15:22:11clyybberBecause traditional exceptions destroy every abstraction or guarantee
15:22:52clyybberOh, its bad without exceptions too...
15:23:06AraqC++ has no 'sink' parameters
15:23:40FromGitter<alehander42> ok
15:24:36FromGitter<alehander42> so i'll push in a PR first a test file for the nil feature to make sure it tests the spec
15:25:10clyybberalehander42: Did you implement it?
15:25:24FromGitter<alehander42> no, i waited for the spec to be accepted
15:25:30clyybberAh, ok
15:25:37FromGitter<alehander42> i already have an older implementation, but its ast-based
15:26:01Araqand it might be fine
15:26:09Araqast-based can be integrated into sempass2 easily
15:26:22Araqin fact, sempass2 already tries to do this analysis
15:26:29FromGitter<alehander42> but it seems to me the cfg stuff already runs in sempass2
15:26:33*PMunch quit (Remote host closed the connection)
15:26:37Araqnot really
15:26:50Araqit's delayed until code generation
15:27:16Araqwhich is a problem on its own, if you misuse '=' in a proc that you don't call, the error is not reported
15:28:08FromGitter<alehander42> at least in my experiments i used `dfa` to define a nilCheck function
15:28:16FromGitter<alehander42> and just called it in the end of trackProc
15:29:44FromGitter<alehander42> my understanding was that one has to construct the cfg from certain ast and then analyze it, so i am not sure why the current cfg stuff is ran in codegen
15:30:25Araqbecause only the codegen currently needs it
15:31:06FromGitter<alehander42> ok, well, codegen should codegen

15:33:15FromGitter<alehander42> well, i think we should what is correct, not what is easier
15:33:57FromGitter<alehander42> if cfg would be generally useful for more analysis, probably better to put it where it should be
15:34:06clyybberyeah.
15:34:22FromGitter<alehander42> if it would be an overkill for notnil, then notnil can just use ast indeed
15:35:06*Trustable joined #nim
15:35:50AraqI think for 'not nil' it's overkill unless we seek to support:
15:35:57Araqif x == nil: return
15:36:01Araquse(x[])
15:36:42FromGitter<alehander42> well, we should support that
15:36:52FromGitter<alehander42> but i supported it
15:36:57FromGitter<alehander42> with the ast approach as well .. iirc
15:37:52FromGitter<alehander42> yep https://github.com/alehander42/Nim/blob/ref-nilcheck/compiler/nilcheck.nim#L53
15:37:59disrupteki had to watch carruth on 2x speed and it was still too slow.

23:08:50disrupteki think it's better to leave it as-is and let nimble sort it out in the future.

23:22:54shashlickRight now nimgit2 and other such wrappers downloads the upstream source code and resultant binaries into the nimble pkg directly
23:23:19shashlickMakes it hard to uninstall since nimble gets upset about these untracked files
23:23:29shashlickNeed to move these into some other location
23:23:38shashlickAny suggestions? Cross platform

23:24:11disruptekneeds an RFC so lotsa people can agree that it's silly. 🙁
23:24:44disruptekit would be nice to have a place we can safely blow away to freshen a build/install, for one thing.
23:25:23disruptekbasically, it's hard to manage in a naive way right now, which is my personal complaint.
23:26:53shashlickInitially I was using temp
23:26:59shashlickBut that's a security issue
23:27:34shashlickCould use AppData and .cache like nimcache
23:28:20disrupteki don't think .cache makes sense because i want to assume i can remove it to _fix_ things, not to break things.
23:28:42shashlickMaybe just use nimcache
23:28:51shashlickWherever it is
23:28:56disrupteksame problem.
23:29:44disruptekfact is, there aren't many assumptions you can make about this stuff. probably the best you can do is to store retrieved assets separately and reconstitute the binaries on demand to yet another directory.

23:50:59dv^_^Can I set the length of a seq to 0 without changing its capacity?
23:51:16disrupteksure.
23:51:48dv^_^How?
23:53:10disrupteksetLen
23:55:26dv^_^Ok, I'll try that. Thanks.
23:57:49dv^_^Is there a function to copy part of a seq into another seq? like memcpy
