06:16:15FromGitter<alehander42> hm, one of my processes .. just dies on the first epoll_wait
06:16:21FromGitter<alehander42> but it doesnt seem to make sense to me
06:16:32FromGitter<alehander42> @gogolxdong just memcpy i guess
06:16:33*PMunch joined #nim
06:16:38FromGitter<alehander42> if it's on the c backend
06:17:01Araqa = [0,0,0,0,0,0]
06:17:02FromGitter<alehander42> if not, you can write a helper that loops
06:20:18leorizePMunch: the playground is offline
06:21:39leorize@gogolxdong: reset() also works
06:21:59PMunchleorize, well that's not good..
06:22:26PMunchHmm, seems like it ran out of disk
06:22:54leorizethere aren't any log collector? :P
06:24:11FromGitter<zacharycarter> PMunch: are you using docker for it?
06:24:36leorizeafaik the playground works by having a docker spawned per request
06:25:05FromGitter<zacharycarter> well that's how it worked in the initial version I built
06:25:13FromGitter<zacharycarter> but I'm not sure if PMunch changed it when he took it over
06:25:16leorizeso my best guess is just some log rotation daemon got misconfigured and didn't clean some big logs
06:25:31PMunchYeah, that's how it still works
06:25:34FromGitter<zacharycarter> docker is a PITA when it comes to disk space
06:26:08PMunchIt's done this before, IIRC it's that the docker containers leaves a little trace behind, which slowly accumulates
06:26:14FromGitter<zacharycarter> yup
06:26:51FromGitter<zacharycarter> amazes me that docker has been around THIS long and still has major issues like this
06:29:28FromGitter<gogolxdong> Can I cast array[35, int] to nested array[5,array[0..6,int]]?
06:31:29PMunchgogolxdong, think so yeah
06:32:34FromGitter<gogolxdong> What about seq?
06:32:51PMunchProbably not
06:33:15PMunchA seq has two fields in front of the data, its size and capacity
06:33:54PMunchBut you could cast the first position in the seq to an array
06:34:13FromGitter<alehander42> @gogolxdong you can not i think
06:34:23FromGitter<alehander42> if you use javascript
06:34:33FromGitter<alehander42> it really depend on your backend
06:34:41FromGitter<alehander42> do you use the c or the javascript backend
06:35:54FromGitter<alehander42> why would epoll_wait stop a program started by my script

06:53:22PMunchOkay, leorize playground is back up and running now
06:54:08PMunchI went looking for solutions to this problem, apparently docker stores some metadata about every time you've run a container.. Which as you might imagine happens quite often on the playground
06:54:42PMunchWhat I did now was just delete the container, stop docker, manually delete all the files, start docker, and rebuild the container.
06:54:53PMunchThis works, but it's not exactly a clean solution..

07:30:05krux02yea, I already know that scala implicits are everywhere, I think it is also a reason why scala compiles so slowly.
07:30:33krux02In scala you can't even call an extension method without an implicit conversion.
07:31:35krux02in scala implicit parameters are often used as a crutch, not as something you want.
07:31:56Araqyou do know this, but many never used Scala :P

07:33:40*ZORR0W quit (Read error: Connection reset by peer)
07:33:46krux02for example, you can't have two methods with ``def foo(arg: Seq[int])`` and ``def foo(arg: Seq[float])``, because of type erasure. In the jvm Seq[float] is identical to Seq[int]. So you have to attach an implicit parameter to one of them to make them look distinct to the jvm. This parameter has no value in the function itself.
07:35:14AraqScala doesn't have to follow the JVM's type erasure, it could do code specializations
07:36:33krux02it does follow JVM's type erasure, to be callable from java without additional name mangleing
07:36:57krux02and scala does have a feature for specializations, but it never really worked as far as I know.
07:39:08*ZORR0W joined #nim
07:43:27krux02As much as I can tell you, we are in much better waters considering implicits.
07:43:52krux02We have implicit conversions, but they are not required for anything unlike scala.

10:37:38AraqI want type-checked generics and concepts can give me these
10:39:38alexander92ok, i see
10:39:46alexander92the one thing i dont get from design point is
10:40:51alexander92why should `proc` and `iterator` be special , but not e.g. `template` `func` or `field`
10:41:44alexander92if i am a new user, i would not expect concept proc test to match my type with template test (but maybe the "read the spec" point applies here ..)
10:45:27*fjellfras quit (Quit: Leaving)
10:47:36AraqI asked the question, "what does it take to type-check 'sort', 'find', hash tables" and came up with a clear design that should work. The old concepts don't solve that.

11:12:52Araqlook, currently generic proc bodies are not type-checked. It doesn't matter if you use concepts or not, they are not type checked.
11:13:22Araqfor type-checking you need to say what 'T' must be capable of.
11:13:43Araqso you write generic constraints for T, aka concepts
11:19:12alexander92i didn't know they trigger it
11:19:16alexander92i thought only specializations
11:19:29alexander92make the compiler typecheck bodies
11:21:00alexander92sorry, so what i dont get then is what is missing from current concepts to make a good sort or hash table constraint (i thought both proposals are capable of similar things for matching functions and var-ity)
11:21:52*hoijui quit (Quit: Leaving)
11:34:29Araqwith the existing concept syntax it's effectively guesswork what 'T' must be able to do, which operations are meant when you say
11:34:45Araq for x in c: foo(x) is int
11:35:14Araqis this 'int' evaluated in the instantiation scope or in the declaration scope?
11:35:54Araqand is the 'is' operator still the one from system.nim?
11:36:34Araqit's madness, effectively you need to give the concept body a real sublanguage/grammar to be able to figure out these things
11:38:23Araqdoes your for loop rely on the 'items' iterator? what if 'c' is itself an iterator? can iterators match concepts?
11:39:20alexander92well, i'd guess instantiation scope?
11:39:32alexander92honestly i dont know this for your proposal as well
11:39:47alexander92the `int` thing*
11:40:00Araqit's the declaration scope, obviously
11:40:05alexander92i agree that `is` overloading might seem strange
11:40:29Araqthe stuff that you introduce comes after the 'proc', iterator or 'each' keywords
11:40:44alexander92but i dont agree about the iterators: it seems natural to me to also match an iterator in this case (the concept says "stuff that can be typechecked like that", so obviously such an iterator is ok)
11:41:52alexander92but on the other hand, it isn't possible to call an iterator like `c` right
11:41:55alexander92you have to `c()`
11:42:12alexander92so maybe there can't be ambiguity here
11:42:52alexander92anyway, so it's a design discussion, that's what i wanted to understand, ok

13:17:20owl_000at least syntax highlighting auto bracket closing.

17:37:17disruptekokie, lemme know.

17:39:08leorizehas your freeze always been there?
17:39:22leorizeor is it a new thing due to nim.nvim?
17:39:40disruptekthat's what i'm trying to figure out. i took gitgutter out today.
17:41:37leorizedoes the profiling highlight any hotspot?
17:43:30leorizealso, if you want to check if nim.nvim causes trouble, then you can disable the semantic highlighter (which is probably the heaviest thing in the plugin) by commenting the second `autocmd` in `ftdetect/nim.vim`
17:44:48disruptekyeah, it's one of the two profile peaks.

18:37:05FromGitter<awr1> looks very nice :)
18:37:12FromGitter<awr1> add some shadow mapping!
18:38:46FromGitter<zacharycarter> yeah, that's next :)
18:41:43FromGitter<zacharycarter> and thanks!

21:03:07lqdev[m]shashlick: can you make nimterop support compilers that are not gcc?
21:03:16lqdev[m]I'm trying to compile to windows using clang.
21:03:37lqdev[m]because mingw is a buggy mess.

21:27:06FromGitter<awr1> do you know what specifically is preventing clang from working with nimterop
21:29:57FromGitter<awr1> i mean you still need to use the mingw toolchain with clang on windows...
21:31:47skrylar[m]i haven't had many issues with mingw in my days ._. none that weren't just general autoconf pain back in the day
21:33:54FromGitter<awr1> yeah mingw on windows is fine. the only issues i've had with it that come to mind is that it's somewhat annoying to install plus G++ doesn't allow interfacing with COM objects in quite the same syntax as MSVC (i.e. `->lpVtbl->`)
21:33:57FromGitter<awr1> oh yeah
21:34:12FromGitter<awr1> and for some reason i can't get NVAPI to link with mingw
21:34:28FromGitter<awr1> that was like a year ago though

22:11:25lqdev[m]@awr1 it's gcc hardcoded into some commands nimterop executes during compile time

22:27:53disruptekwhat kinda container does an nnkImportStmt live in?
22:29:08disruptekto put that another way, how can i macro an import in addition to some other statements?
22:38:06disruptekbut doesn't that mean the import isn't at the top level?
22:39:33FromGitter<mratsim> there is an nnkStmtList at the top level that contains everything else
22:39:47disrupteki guess it worked; thanks. i coulda sworn i tried it already.

23:00:32FromGitter<Varriount> Agh, there are, like, 100+ assumptions baked into posix naming conventions.
23:00:56FromGitter<Varriount> For example, there's no way to escape the colon in chown, meaning no usernames with colons
23:01:45disruptekwhat a shame.
23:02:13disruptekwould be fun recording those in /etc/passwd.
23:02:37FromGitter<Varriount> disruptek: I just dislike the arbitrariness of it.
23:02:56disruptekyeah, it's annoying to have to code around.
23:03:46disruptekhow long did it take them to add the warning to `chmod -x`? almost 20 years.
23:05:02Araqthe unix illusion of perfection breaks down quickly when you improve the software so that's what they never do

23:05:32disruptekwell, i wish they did a better job of leaving it alone.
23:05:38FromGitter<Varriount> "File paths can be any possible character except null or forward slash"
23:06:09FromGitter<Varriount> Oh wait, except for colons (used as a separator for various variable lists)

23:33:49juturnasIs it possible to prevent the use of default values for an object's fields? In order to e.g. make it an error to instantiate that type without providing a value for the field
23:37:50*btop quit (Ping timeout: 276 seconds)
23:38:28juturnasI have a type `NodeRef = ref object ...` and a type `Node = NodeRef not nil`. I have a function that iterats over a `seq[Node]` and in some cases the iterator is returning a `nil` Node. Am I misunderstanding the guarantees of `not nil`, or is there likely something else at play?

23:50:11FromGitter<awr1> interesting, didn't know about that pragma
23:55:41FromGitter<mratsim> probably a bug
23:56:17FromGitter<mratsim> if you can open one on the nim repo with a reproduction example that would be helpful
