00:39:32xacejrfondren, turns out you were right, ncurses-like interfaces can be proxied just by printing its output... Do you happen to know if there is a clever way to capture the output of the program? in this case `fzf` clears it's screen and resets the terminal to its original state and pipes out a line with the result. My current idea is to detect the `\e[?1000l` because it appears right before the output data... (i
00:39:38xaceguess i should scrape the terminfo for what `\e[?1000l` really means)
00:42:34FromGitter<kaushalmodi> xace: did you see my message about smenu?
00:43:05xacekaushalmodi: no i did not. did you write about it recently?
00:43:29FromGitter<kaushalmodi> No, I didn't do anything
00:43:39FromGitter<kaushalmodi> Thinking of wrapping it in Nim
00:43:49FromGitter<kaushalmodi> Search for smenu GitHub
00:44:19xaceoh, do you intend to interface with it by re-compiling it from source or calling the binary?
00:44:32FromGitter<kaushalmodi> It has header file
00:44:45FromGitter<kaushalmodi> So should be easy to use nimterop on it
00:45:07xacemy approach for `fzf` is to call the binary but have nim act as a direct proxy by giving `fzf` access to some virtual stdin/out/err
00:45:10FromGitter<kaushalmodi> Nimterop can clone from source and build the .so
00:45:40FromGitter<kaushalmodi> My idea is that direct C interface might be more efficient?
00:45:52xaceah, then the header method would make more sense... `fzf` is written in go, not sure if nim has suppose to interact with .go programs
00:46:41xace(i wasn't reading as i was writing that, im on a phone and very distracted)
00:52:45shashlickIt's possible cause go can be called from C
00:52:56shashlickBut it's convoluted
00:54:21xaceshashlick: yeah thats what i was afraid of... btw i managed to get `fzf` working, but since it was written on the phone there is a lot of junk/prototyping that needs to be cleaned up, and im not really happy with the solution, but "it works on my machine" ;)...

03:16:50FromGitter<kaushalmodi> shashlick: are you here?
03:20:58shashlickwhat's up
03:22:13FromGitter<kaushalmodi> :)
03:22:18FromGitter<kaushalmodi> I am attempting this: https://github.com/kaushalmodi/nim-smenu/blob/master/src/smenu.nim
03:22:37FromGitter<kaushalmodi> smenu.h has a regex_t type that's coming from <regex.h>
03:23:11FromGitter<kaushalmodi> I tried adding `#include <regex.h>` to `smenu.h` (it doesn't have it originally) but that didn't work
03:23:27FromGitter<kaushalmodi> so how do I `cImport` `<foo.h>`?
03:23:52FromGitter<kaushalmodi> if you clone that repo and run nimble build, you will see the error
03:24:17FromGitter<kaushalmodi> ah! I have the gitpull commented out
03:24:35FromGitter<kaushalmodi> just letting you know (that's not the cause of the problem of course)
03:25:34shashlickam looking
03:26:01leorizejust a note, regex.h is a gnu-extension, so it's not available on non-gnu systems
03:26:34shashlickremember you have to run things in a static block for it to happen at compile time
03:26:35FromGitter<kaushalmodi> smenu probably won't work cross-platform
03:26:38shashlickalso, nimterop has configure support
03:26:54FromGitter<kaushalmodi> shashlick: oh, I never looked for it
03:27:33FromGitter<kaushalmodi> leorize: smenu builds and runs fine on my system
03:27:50FromGitter<kaushalmodi> on Windows though, it would probably run only in the WSL env
03:28:42FromGitter<kaushalmodi> shashlick: what should I be doing in static block?
03:28:54FromGitter<kaushalmodi> i.e. I have always run cImport outside static
03:29:20shashlickcimport is fine
03:29:42leorizeplease add macros / template for this
03:29:59leorizekeep reminding everyone to add `static` means something is really wrong with the interface
03:33:45shashlickblame that tim guy 😞
03:34:23leorizeyou have commit access :p
03:34:48shashlicksetCurrentDir won't work
03:34:52shashlickuse configure
03:38:13FromGitter<kaushalmodi> shashlick: actually configure is working..
03:38:20FromGitter<kaushalmodi> it's creating config.h
03:38:33FromGitter<kaushalmodi> and the build.sh is also running.. I am finally getting the smenu.so
03:38:46FromGitter<kaushalmodi> failure happens at cInclude
03:38:55*dddddd quit (Remote host closed the connection)
03:40:44FromGitter<kaushalmodi> in any case, I switched to using `configure` as it makes the code concise
03:40:54FromGitter<kaushalmodi> but I still get the same error: ⏎ ⏎ > Error: undeclared identifier: 'regex_t'
03:41:07FromGitter<kaushalmodi> I have updated that nim-smenu repo with this last suggested change
03:41:31shashlickcan you push after fixing configure? I can try it out
03:41:37FromGitter<kaushalmodi> just did
03:41:37shashlickoh okay let me try
03:41:56FromGitter<kaushalmodi> I somehow need to do `cImport("<regex.h>")` before `cImport(.."smenu.h")`
03:47:05FromGitter<kaushalmodi> in parallel, I thought.. let me just create a regex_t equivalent type in Nim
03:47:09FromGitter<kaushalmodi> so I find https://github.com/openbsd/src/blob/master/include/regex.h#L52
03:47:39FromGitter<kaushalmodi> and then looking for `re_guts`, I get to http://llvm.org/doxygen/structllvm__regex.html !!
03:47:49shashlickwhy do you have the files copied into the src dir
03:48:39FromGitter<kaushalmodi> the naming might be confusing
03:48:57FromGitter<kaushalmodi> here, `srcDir` is `<repo>/build/smenu`
03:49:24FromGitter<kaushalmodi> https://github.com/kaushalmodi/nim-smenu/blob/07eedc43dffed40a3e5acfbd26310e4d99020215/src/smenu.nim#L4-L6
03:49:57shashlickno i get config.h and configure and other files in the src/smenu.nim directory
03:51:19FromGitter<kaushalmodi> ah, I see.. let me fix that
03:52:20FromGitter<kaushalmodi> I think that did not happen earlier when I ran changecurrentdir
03:52:21shashlickand build.sh doesn't run so smenu isn't built
03:52:39shashlickyou need to `cd xyz && ./build.sh`
03:53:24FromGitter<kaushalmodi> yes, earlier I did `setCurrentDir(srcDir)` outside static, and ran configure, etc outside
03:53:35FromGitter<kaushalmodi> fixing it
03:55:59shashlickI don't think that will run at compile time
03:56:46FromGitter<kaushalmodi> yeah, that didn't work
03:56:55FromGitter<kaushalmodi> so doing the cd srcDir &&
03:57:01FromGitter<kaushalmodi> I have pushed that fix
03:57:14FromGitter<kaushalmodi> now smenu is compiled, which I mv to smenu.so
03:57:31FromGitter<kaushalmodi> but still the same issue about regex_t
03:59:21shashlickif you don't intend creating regex_t objects, you can just get away with `type regex_t = object`
04:04:23FromGitter<kaushalmodi> makes sense
04:04:35FromGitter<kaushalmodi> that let me get past and now I get: ⏎ ⏎ > Error: undeclared identifier: 'home'
04:04:48FromGitter<kaushalmodi> let me try to work it out ..
04:09:54FromGitter<kaushalmodi> I am confused.. the `home` identifier isn't anywhere in the smenu.h: https://github.com/p-gen/smenu/blob/master/smenu.h
04:11:05FromGitter<kaushalmodi> that error shows up at this point: http://ix.io/1LEp/text
04:13:19*Snircle quit (Quit: Textual IRC Client: www.textualapp.com)
04:16:47*nsf joined #nim
04:18:01FromGitter<kaushalmodi> it was the dynlib parameter to cImport; removed it for now, now it's looking for langinfo_t.. let me try to declare all the arbitrary types as just object till the whole thing compiles
04:22:35FromGitter<kaushalmodi> it finally compiles but I realize late that I probably cannot just wrap smenu :/
04:23:21FromGitter<kaushalmodi> it's main func is a huge 1000+ line blob of code (I just assumed that I can use its API from its header)
04:23:33FromGitter<kaushalmodi> oh well
04:29:42shashlickyou could always just comment that portion out with a /* */ combo and build as a lib
04:32:14FromGitter<kaushalmodi> but to get NIm to do what smenu does, I'd need to manually translate the main func there to Nim, right?
04:32:38shashlickyou can also include regex.h with cAddStdDir() within static and then cImport(cSearchPath "regex.h")
04:32:54FromGitter<kaushalmodi> regex_t is not the issue any more
04:32:58shashlickis the main code in the main function?
04:33:04FromGitter<kaushalmodi> yeah ..
04:33:42FromGitter<kaushalmodi> https://github.com/p-gen/smenu/blob/master/smenu.c#L4666
04:33:52FromGitter<kaushalmodi> it's kinda heart-breaking, heh
04:33:59shashlickyou could rename main to something else no?
04:34:01FromGitter<kaushalmodi> that main func keeps on going for thousands of lines
04:34:11shashlickreally well architected eh
04:35:30FromGitter<kaushalmodi> I was hoping that internally it did something like C equivalent of `proc(inputs: seq[string], smenuOpt1: bool, ...): seq[string]`
04:41:17shashlickit's very few C files, so you can use nim to edit the code and export a function instead of calling it main
04:42:59FromGitter<kaushalmodi> I didn't understand
04:44:06shashlickwell so i haven't looked at that main func, but you could rename it to something else, compile it into your nim binary with cCompile
04:44:13shashlickand then call it with the right params
04:47:23*envoyt quit (Ping timeout: 248 seconds)
04:48:22FromGitter<kaushalmodi> I'll need to revisit this late
04:48:24FromGitter<kaushalmodi> later
04:48:50FromGitter<kaushalmodi> So cCompile compiles into the nim binary?
04:49:04shashlickya it will get compiled into a .o file and then linked in
04:49:22FromGitter<kaushalmodi> oh ok
04:49:34FromGitter<kaushalmodi> but the build.sh is already compiling it
04:49:59*envoyt joined #nim
04:50:34shashlickya but that's compiling it into an executable binary
04:50:35FromGitter<kaushalmodi> so I need to rename the main func into something else.. like smenu and then have main just call that, I guess
04:50:39shashlickwith a main function
04:51:12FromGitter<kaushalmodi> I had made a weak attempt of compiling the smenu.c, but it didn't work
04:51:20shashlickyou need to compile into a library or compile it into your binary which makes more sense since it is so few C files
04:51:30shashlickneed to see what build.sh does
04:51:36FromGitter<kaushalmodi> yeah
04:51:50FromGitter<kaushalmodi> will need to do a separate cCompile for each .c file in order
04:53:30FromGitter<kaushalmodi> it's calling the makefile, which has: https://github.com/p-gen/smenu/blob/a5856a023b42d3fa8c1198571e395da11d009bf3/Makefile#L310-L312
04:53:47FromGitter<kaushalmodi> so I'll need to call cCompile for each .c there?
04:54:18shashlickyou can just say *.c
04:54:53FromGitter<kaushalmodi> ok
04:55:11FromGitter<kaushalmodi> btw above link won't work.. Makefile was created locally from Makefile.in

07:32:21FromGitter<mratsim> @narimiran, it's passing because OpenBLAS is only needed at runtime but for Arraymancer and I guess neo you only test that compilation works
07:32:38*neceve joined #nim
07:33:41FromGitter<mratsim> btw, for Arraymancer you test that the library compiles but I think it's better if you test that the test suite compiles even if you never run it (due to OpenBLAS install issues)
07:34:15FromGitter<mratsim> I have some anti-regression part related to symbol resolution and that can only be detected if you try to compile the test suite
07:54:30FromGitter<mratsim> ah, but the arraymancer test suite needs to be compiled by parts since I added complex. Otherwise it uses 3.5GB during compilation and crashes in Travis :/
07:54:44Araqwe're looking into it

08:06:03FromGitter<mratsim> I think it's just the generics that broke the camel back so to speak

12:43:01PMunchI think FAT is also case-insensitive
12:43:34PMunchBut it would be nice if Nim could at least produce a warning. Easy mistake to make since Nim is case-insensitive itself
12:44:00PMunchPeople developing on Windows will need to be careful not to mistype imports if they want their code to be able to compile on Linux
12:44:30PMunchSo either Nim should handle this by itself, or at least produce a warning on Windows machine if the imported name was different from the specified name

13:39:49PMunchTrying to get his wNim to run in a DLL imported by InnoSetup
13:40:08PMunchI can use winim directly, but wNim just hangs
13:40:19PMunchHuh, can't nim cpp cross compile?
13:40:42PMunchI get an error that it can't use g++ when I specify -d:mingw
13:40:56livcdPMunch: are you using latest winim ?
13:41:01PMunchOr rather an error message from g++ saying it can't find Windows.h
13:41:07AraqNim can always cross-compile, bug mingw/gcc can't
13:41:15PMunchlivcd, yes, just installed it a couple minutes ago
13:41:24FromGitter<kaushalmodi> Araq: so all good related to unsetEnv?
13:41:39PMunchVia Nimble though, so if there is a newer version on GitHub than what Nimble grabs then no
13:41:59narimirannimble install [email protected]#head
13:42:08PMunchAraq, well nim c -d:mingw works like a charm
13:42:57livcdbut winim was just updated, wNim is maybe not updated to reflect changes on stable
13:44:10PMunchWell it works if I just compile it to an exe
13:44:21PMunchJust not when I run it as a DLL under InnoSetup
13:45:28PMunchAraq, http://ix.io/1LG7
13:45:51PMunchIt seems like the cpp target tries to use Linux g++ instead of mingw

14:05:15leorizeyou needs those dll next to the .exe
14:05:29PMunchNext to it?
14:05:36leorizein the same folder
14:05:46leorizethose are mingw's
14:06:01leorizeyou could probably salvage some from the installation of mingw already in your machine
14:06:37leorizea way to package these things for windows is to use msys2, or just bundles dlls + licenses
14:07:17PMunchAha, okay so that worked
14:08:10PMunchI was only wanting to try this to see if I could get wnim to work if I compiled to cpp
14:08:15PMunchBut I guess it's not worth the hassle
14:08:22PMunchBack to the drawing board..
14:09:19leorizeuse vcc and you won't have to worry about mingw :)
14:09:40leorizeor clang for windows if it can use windows c++ runtime
14:10:21PMunchI'm fine with using the C target :)
14:10:27PMunchWhich "just works"
14:10:39PMunchApart from the fact that wNim doesn't work..
14:10:50PMunchBut I'm off now
14:10:51leorizeuntil gcc realizes that it needs some "helper" functions in libgcc_s :)
14:11:05PMunchI did compile it with --static-libgcc

20:08:55Acid147dom96 I've tried that too, still a normal Linux binary file. Maybe I'm doing something wrong? I'm trying to compile an empty Nim file, which should fail for --os:standalone but doesn't...
20:09:19dom96Acid147, how would you normally compile it (without Nimble)?
20:10:20Acid147I've only tried it with nimble (nimble build)
20:10:32Acid147And nimble build does recognize the config file and fails
20:11:23dom96try it with `nim c` (or `nimble c`) and figure out what options you need
20:12:51lqdev[m]does Nim have something similar to `__has_include`?
20:17:12Acid147nim c needs --os:standalone to fail (without nim.cfg), so it's the same as nimble build
20:18:18Acid147Oh, I think I found the problem
20:18:35narimiransome very nice words here: http://codeninja.blog/2019/exploring-nim/

20:58:42rayman22201@Pmunch! you were afk when I pinged you yesterday. I saw your keepass lib and I wanted to thank you for making it! and ask some questions about it. What version of keepass database does it support? How hard do you think it is to add key file support?
20:59:08PMunchOh thanks :)
20:59:59PMunchI think the format was the v2
21:00:20rayman22201excellent. Exactly what I need :-)
21:00:45PMunchAnd key file support, not really sure
21:01:06PMunchIt's probably not that tricky though
21:02:26jjidoI use pwsafe, KeePass looks similar
21:03:51rayman22201I started to look at what the python lib does, and it doesn't seem terrible, basically read the key file, hash it, and concatenate it with the hashed password. Then use that combined key to decrypt.
21:03:58rayman22201I was just curious if you had looked into it
21:04:16*jjido quit (Quit: My MacBook has gone to sleep. ZZZzzz…)
21:05:17PMunchAh, yeah that sounds simple enough
21:06:06rayman22201I have used KeePassX for a long time, but I was building some personal utility script that I want to be able to read a password from my keepass db. Really it's just for laziness :-P
21:06:08PMunchHaven't really thought about it, I wrote that lib so I could have a Nim program take my password and the file, and feed the results to xlunch for me to search and choose the one I want to write out
21:06:25rayman22201lol, that's similar to what I want to do
21:06:30PMunchHaha, pretty much yeah :)
21:06:58rayman22201I really didn't expect Nim to have a lib for this, so I was very happy when I found it on nimble.directory lol
21:07:13PMunchI have a keyboard shortcut which prompts me for a password, then it pops up xlunch with all the entries which I can directly search, selecting one writes it out in whatever field was active when I hit the shortcut
21:08:14rayman22201unfortunately, I use a key file, because I'm one of "those" extra paranoid people lol. So I make extra work for myself :-P
