0:01 arrdem: TimMc: how to explod on error? TypeError?

0:02 nightfly: #lisp can be pretty vicious about off-topic conversation

0:03 frozenlock: to be fair #lisp can be pretty vicious about on-topic conversation too.

0:12 Any 'eval-in-ns' functions?

0:16 gfredericks: frozenlock: lots somewhere; (binding [*ns*] (eval thing)) should work

0:20 frozenlock: Oh wow, way simpler than what I was expecting..

0:40 yedi: what non blocking database solutions exist in clojure?

0:40 ChongLi: yedi: hmm?

0:42 why not put the call in an agent?

0:46 or a future for that matter

0:52 yedi: ChongLi: looks like i have more things to learn

0:57 ChongLi: it's the "old" way of doing things

0:57 put a blocking call in a green thread to be run on a thread pool at a later time

1:04 yedi: old in what sense?

1:05 ChongLi: old in the sense that it's different from the "new" way of doing things with callbacks and an event loop

1:05 I guess the event loop is pretty old too

1:06 it's just in fashion right now thanks to javascript not having threads

1:06 (and the popularity of node)

1:06 nightfly: Doesn't it also not require context switching in the kernel?

1:07 ChongLi: I wasn't aware of that requirement

1:08 I was just speaking in terms of the semantics the programmer deals with

1:22 Sgeo: Callbacks and event loop can be hidden with nice syntax to look like/be green threads

1:22 Depending on the language'

1:34 muhoo: i thought java used native threads, not green threads?

1:35 top and ps sure seem to indicate that

1:36 ChongLi: muhoo: it does

1:36 muhoo: yep, looks like (future ...) does indeed launch a process

1:36 arrdem: herm... so how can I make (vector) non-lazy?

1:37 Raynes: Vectors aren't lazy.

1:37 muhoo: arrdem: doall?

1:38 * arrdem does the happy dance, his type system works!

1:38 arrdem: Raynes was vindicated, I forgot to C-c C-l

1:44 TimMc: https://www.refheap.com/paste/11734

1:44 that was fun.. bedtime now.

2:01 nonuby: is there something like conj that ignores nil e.g. (conj2 [] 1 2 3 nil 4) -> [1 2 3 4]

2:02 ChongLi: nonuby: you could filter on identity first

2:02 ,(filter identity [1 2 3 nil 4])

2:02 clojurebot: (1 2 3 4)

2:07 nonuby: https://www.refheap.com/paste/11738 - doesnt quite feel idiomatic

2:09 ChongLi: it does not appear to be

2:10 nonuby: any suggestions?

2:10 ChongLi: I'm not quite sure what you're trying to accomplish over all

2:10 some sort of rule-based dispatch?

2:10 nonuby: create an array of warning

2:11 warnings

2:11 ChongLi: right, but why do you need that?

2:12 nonuby: so I display in the html - hand off to view logic in hiccup to render out

2:12 ChongLi: ah ok

2:12 so you're doing some form validation and want to display a list of warnings based on the user's specifications?

2:13 nonuby: yes, basically, when we display details of a villa we use the previously captured user specification to highlight when the choosen villa might not be optimal (based on dates, bedrooms etc.)

2:14 ChongLi: have you looked at using a form validation library?

2:16 or perhaps you already have a big application and you're adding to it?

2:16 nonuby: this is tiny app at the moment, no i have not looked into any validation libraries

2:16 do you suggest any?

2:17 ChongLi: first one that comes to mind is sandbar

2:17 though it has a few other features as well

2:17 nonuby: thanks

2:18 ChongLi: be sure to check the form-validation documentation

2:18 it has some nice macros to make building validators easier

2:18 one of the key reasons you want to use something like this is to create open, extensible validators

2:19 putting everything into one monolithic function with a big long chain of ifs/whens/cond etc. is much harder to work with

2:19 nonuby: will thinking that over, thanks

2:19 clifton: anyone know where clojure.contrib.io/read-lines went?

2:22 Raynes: clojure.core

2:22 I think?

2:22 $source read-lines

2:22 lazybot: Source not found.

2:22 Raynes: Guess not.

2:23 clifton: it appears to have vanished

2:23 ChongLi: what's the difference between that and read-line

2:23 ?

2:23 Raynes: It reads more than one line.

2:23 ChongLi: besides the obvious I mean :)

2:23 Raynes: (line-seq (clojure.java.io/reader (clojure.java.io/file "somefile.txt")))

2:23 clifton: ^ pretty sure this does the same thing.

2:24 clifton: yeah

2:24 just saw line-seq on stackoverflow

2:24 goodbye convenience function -- i guess

2:24 thanks Raynes

2:24 ChongLi: a lazy sequence from a file?

2:24 how does that deal with closing the file handle?

2:25 Raynes: It doesn't.

2:25 (with-open [reader (clojure.java.io/reader (clojure.java.io/file "foo"))] (line-seq reader))

2:25 ChongLi: ah ok, that's what I figured

2:26 Raynes: That is lazy though so you have to do all of your work and realize the seq inside of the scope of with-open, otherwise you'll be doing the reading after the file is closed.

2:26 ChongLi: it does have the benefit of you only needing to realize the lines you need for your work though

2:41 sirvaliance: Ok, I am back again out of frustration. How in the world do you delete/remove a cookie within a handler with ring/compojure/noir ?

2:41 It should be stupidly easy.

2:41 Set the headers

2:42 I am using compojure and ring to store session data in a cookie. Logouts should delete that cookie. I cannot figure out how to delete that cookie

2:43 I feel dumb. Mind you, I have plenty of wine in my system right now.

2:43 But I have scoured the ring/compojure/noir api docs to no avail

4:46 meegofl: Hi, need little help with changing a value in a bit complex set

4:46 i defined this : (def tbl (ref {:key1 [1 2] :key2 [3 4]}))

4:46 and i want to change the value first item in tbl :key1

4:47 should be somthing like: (dosync (alter (tbl :key1) assoc 0 9))

4:47 but it throws error: ClassCastException clojure.lang.PersistentVector cannot be cast to clojure.lang.Ref clojure.core/alter (core.clj:2190)

5:18 borkdude: meegofl (dosync (alter tbl assoc-in [:key1 0] 9))

5:30 meegofl: borkdude: Thanks!

5:30 borkdude: meegofl np. any reason why you're not using an atom?

5:30 meegofl refs are for when you need coördination

5:35 meegofl: borkdude: Thanks, that seems useful but doesn't recall it was mentioned in our lectures...

5:35 borkdude: meegofl what lectures?

5:36 meegofl: borkdude: i'm doing a project as part of functional programming course

5:36 borkdude: meegofl I use Clojure in education, so it's interesting to see how others do it

5:36 meegofl is there a link or smth to the course website?

5:38 meegofl: borkdude: it's in highlearn system but i may send you the ppt's it about 5MB

5:38 borkdude: meegofl cool. michielborkent@gmail.com

5:45 meegofl: borkdude: Sent

5:47 borkdude: meegofl tnx :)

5:50 meegofl are you in Israel?

5:50 meegofl: borkdude: yep

5:54 borkdude: meegofl nice slides, tnx

5:54 meegofl do you also have exercises etc

5:56 meegofl: borkdude: There are some example files with simple clojure code and there is no exercises

5:56 borkdude: there is no exam also just one project instead

5:56 borkdude: meegofl interesting. what kind of project, a web app

5:56 ?

5:57 meegofl: borkdude: Basically you can choose from some ideas (in lecture 3 i think) and suggest your own

5:57 borkdude: most students (as us) choose to implement simple database (kinda of SQL)

5:58 borkdude: meegofl ah ok. it's nice to see the adoption of clojure in education here and there

5:59 meegofl: borkdude: It's actually a nice language with some strong features but haven't seen or heard of it anywhere until University...

6:01 borkdude: meegofl it's a relatively young language

6:01 meegofl in the form of one of the oldest languages (lisp)

6:46 pepijndevos: The syntax for defmulti has changed. Example: (defmulti name dispatch-fn :default dispatch-value)

6:47 But the online docs say (defmulti name docstring? attr-map? dispatch-fn & options)

6:48 as does my repl

6:53 I have no idea what dispatch-values is, and where I'm supposed to put the argument vector, if at all.

7:10 clojure-newb: hey guys.. I'm stuck trying to use assoc-in or update-in to turn '{:k1 "stuff" :k2 ["1" "2"]}' into '{:k1 "stuff" :k2 ["1" "2" "3"]}' is that the way I should be looking to do it ?

7:10 xbat: what should i use for complex number maths, please? there used to be something in contrib, but i can't see what replaced it...

7:17 well, seems i'm going to have to implement them myself

7:17 is http://stackoverflow.com/questions/11824815/fast-complex-number-arithmetic-in-clojure

7:17 still a good way to go?

7:17 (i only need very basic arithmetic, just surprised it hasn't been done yet)

7:28 meegofl: Hey, i've got a wierd problem

7:28 http://pastebin.com/XT7TDr1S

7:29 i'm going to a table using a key twice each time key from different value

7:29 i compare the keys and they are the same but once i get the right value and once i get nil

7:29 Can anyone please take a look? Thanks...

7:32 ambrosebs: &(+ 1)

7:32 lazybot: ⇒ 1

7:32 ambrosebs: &(-> '{:k1 "stuff" :k2 ["1" "2"]} (update-in [:k2] conj "3"))

7:32 lazybot: ⇒ {:k1 "stuff", :k2 ["1" "2" "3"]}

7:32 ambrosebs: clojure-newb: ^^

7:33 clojure-newb: ambrosebs: thx

7:33 damn, easy as that :-)

7:33 ambrosebs: But only conj onto a vector(!)

7:33 clojure-newb: ok thx for the heads up

7:34 ambrosebs: np

8:25 h455m0: hi

8:33 mindbender1: what is the cost of this pattern, how does it really work? (defn foo [-fn] (fn [baz] (-fn baz)))

8:35 I know it's based on closures< first class fns, and higher order logic concepts

8:36 jjido: mindbender1: what does it do?

8:36 mindbender1: but how can one know when to use it

8:38 jjido: it takes a fn and return a fn

8:38 jjido: it is compose isn't it?

8:40 mindbender1: I'm not sure if to call it that

8:43 jjido: ((fn [x] x) ((fn [y] y) 2)) I would hope this is composition

8:51 johnmn3: g'day

8:51 h455m0: good day sir

8:52 johnmn3: I'm just starting out with clojurescript. I'm familiar with java interop, but just now trying to figure out how to do javascript interop

8:52 h455m0: my head hurts ... why is it, that, to understand recursion, one has to first understand recursion?

8:53 johnmn3: Like here: http://closure-library.googlecode.com/svn/docs/class_goog_math_Integer.html, How do I do toString on a number?

8:53 I'd think (.toString 123)

8:53 h455m0: would make sense to me

8:53 johnmn3: oh

8:53 I'd think (.toString 123 2)

8:53 wait

8:54 no

8:54 h455m0: why the 2?

8:54 johnmn3: the radix

8:54 toString(opt_radix) ? string

8:56 h455m0: hm ... i have no diea

8:58 johnmn3: do i have to require goog.math.Integer first?

9:13 kmicu: johnmn3: (.toString (js/Number. 123) 2)

9:14 meegofl: How do i add values (keys vals) to (def tbl (ref array-map))?

9:14 one at a time

9:16 kmicu: or (map #(.toString %) (take 5 (range)))

9:17 one at a time?

9:34 h455m0: kmicu: not sure what you are trying to do?

9:34 kmicu: lol ;)

9:36 meegofl: sth wrong with (dosync (alter tbl conj [k v]))?

9:39 pepijndevos: How can I best create a SQL table with korma/clojure/jdbc?

9:40 hcumberd`: pepijndevos: ddl?

9:40 pepijndevos: hcumberd`: ?

9:41 ah

9:41 hcumberd`: pepijndevos: there are clojure wrapper, but the most simple way is just to create them by plain ddl

9:42 data definition language

9:42 create table,...

9:54 johnmn3: kmicu: thanks

9:55 kmicu: how would I go about change 123 into base 2?

9:55 with java I would use: (defn to2 [n] (Integer/toString n 2))

9:56 and google closure has: toString(opt_radix)

9:57 oh, js/Number did that

9:57 my bad

9:57 problemo, elsolvedo

9:57 but I'd still like to know how to drop into google-closure interop

10:01 kmicu: google-closure-library?

10:02 Import some goog.x namespace and use regular js interop.

10:02 johnmn3: ok, will try

10:03 been trying but I'm just doing something wrong

10:03 no worries, I'll figure it out. I think you gave me the right hints.

10:05 kmicu: johnmn3: https://github.com/levand/domina/blob/master/src/cljs/domina/events.cljs

10:05 Here you have a real example about GClosure Library interop...

10:06 johnmn3: much obliged

10:14 clojure-newb: hey guys, I'm having trouble getting distinct items out of a sequence of vectors as described in : https://www.refheap.com/paste/11746, can anyone help ?

10:17 johnmn3: how do you require a library in clojurescript outside of an ns form?

10:18 pepijndevos: johnmn3: I thin the NS form generates some closure compiler directives. so… I think you just don't

10:18 kmicu: In REPL or in a cljs file?

10:18 johnmn3: in the repl

10:18 okay

10:19 kmicu: Namespace must be defined before loaded in repl x]

10:20 johnmn3: okay

10:20 kmicu: It's not nice, but in-ns form can't crate new namespace.

10:20 johnmn3: (goog.string/parseInt "10010001" 2) does not return what I expect

10:21 In java: (Integer/parseInt "10010001" 2) => 145

10:22 goog.string/parseInt returns "10010001"

10:22 or 10010001, rather

10:22 abp: ,(distinct (concat [1] [1 2 3]))

10:22 clojurebot: (1 2 3)

10:22 abp: clojure-newb: ^

10:23 johnmn3: looks like maybe base conversion from javascript is hard

10:23 from 2 in javascript, I mean

10:24 kmicu: johnmn3: this is only parsing function

10:25 Do you want convert to another base?

10:25 johnmn3: from 2 to 10

10:27 kmicu: johnmn3: "This is a wrapper for the built-in parseInt function that will only parse numbers as base 10 or base 16"

10:27 johnmn3: then it says: See https://developer.mozilla.org/en/JavaScript/Reference/Global_Objects/parseInt

10:28 The following examples all return 15:

10:28 parseInt("1111", 2);

10:28 but it doesn't work

10:29 at least, goog.string/parseInt doesnt

10:29 meegofl: if i have an array-map, how can i get the key of a value i have from that map?

10:32 johnmn3: ahah! (js/parseInt "10010001" 2)

10:32 kmicu: ^

10:32 your hints led me in the right direction, thanks.

10:33 kmicu: Forgot about global space... ;)

10:47 clojure-newb: Why do you want to switch from maps to vectors?

10:47 clojure-newb: kmicu: because I'm reading the data in from separated value file info vector and want to perform this step before I process any further

10:48 *into

10:50 kmicu: And order of elements is important? You want to have new get-distinct-items?

10:51 clojure-newb: kmicu: yes it is important that I group on the correct element (nth 1) and that (nth 2) tells me how complete the item it

10:52 kmicu: Order is not needed to group by correct element ;)

10:53 clojure-newb: oh right…. I think you mean do I want the result in the same order ?

10:53 in that case yes

10:53 sorry… had trouble with understanding that

10:55 hyPiRion: gfredericks: sweet!

11:05 gfredericks: why would (Foo. ...) succeed when (map->Foo {...}) throws a "Can't remove struct key" exception?

11:07 apparently because the argument is a PersistentStructMap o_O

11:08 * gfredericks doesn't even know what that is

11:09 gfredericks: oh that must be what enlive uses

11:09 yay enlive

11:11 clojure-newb: hmm, confused… some progress getting distinct on values as at : https://www.refheap.com/paste/11748, but I am getting mysterious (at least to me) answers

11:12 sorry, that link should have been : https://www.refheap.com/paste/11749

11:14 gfredericks: much nicer :)

11:15 clojure-newb: oh.. typo.. forget it, I'm an idiot :-(

11:17 yogthos: Raynes: hey you around? :)

11:24 gfredericks: is it a bug for data.xml to emit content with emit-str but write nothing with emit?

11:25 I must be crazy because emit-str just uses the string-writer

11:50 frozenlock: What would be the best way to trigger an event when a java object changes?

11:55 tgoossens: frozenlock: any object? or an object that you are going to design yourself (in which case you could use subscriber / observer pattern)

11:55 frozenlock: Any object

11:55 tgoossens: ok

11:56 AndChat-8064: hi, guys, how to debug with nrepl? I tried ritz, but it's not quite satisfactory. For example, when I enabled nrepl-break-on-exception, I cannot disable it and it continues to pop up annoying stack traces for unrelevant exceptions. Also, it looks like the ac-nrepl is incompatible with ritz as it hangs mysteriously.

11:57 I just need a debugger with breakpoint and capability to examine current context.

11:57 tgoossens: frozenlock: a tedious way of doing this (in java) is mocking it, another even more tedious way is editing to bytecode engineer it with asm

11:58 frozenlock: ewww

11:58 tgoossens: :p

11:58 and with mock i mean

11:59 dcolish: I was hoping someone has insight on how I can resolve this error: https://gist.github.com/dcolish/5024561. I am just getting into clojure and I wanted to try something similar to haskell's `fn $ flip`.

11:59 frozenlock: I take that's not a usual need... perhaps I should try to find another way of doing things.

11:59 tgoossens: what is it exactly you want to achieve?

11:59 if the object changes internally

11:59 caused by external (method call), internal , or both effects

12:00 da-z: tgoossens: can one periodically check the hash code of an object and compare it with a previous value ?

12:00 tgoossens: hmm

12:00 that's not so such a bad idea

12:00 but

12:01 then you cannot be sure that you are notified for every change

12:01 frozenlock: It's a change caused by an event on the network.

12:01 alandipert: dcolish: unfortunately you can't apply constructors like you do on line 10

12:01 dcolish: ah that is a shame

12:01 tgoossens: maybe you should track those events ?

12:02 frozenlock: bleh.. the point of using the java library was to avoid dealing with this messy stuff :P

12:02 tgoossens: hehe

12:03 just asking, have you tried mockito already?

12:04 frozenlock: I did not

12:04 tgoossens: ok

12:04 because with that, you might be able to do it :p

12:04 its a bit tedious so you might want to look for something different

12:05 the idea of hashcodes is not such a bad idea, maybe you can dig in on that a bit

12:05 or

12:06 maybe you can use reflection

12:06 dcolish: alandipert: Its interesting that when I bring the BufferedReader ctor to a higher scope I can use it in composition https://gist.github.com/dcolish/5024597

12:07 frozenlock: Really not worth the trouble. If I can't find an easy way, I'll just wing it. I must keep myself from adding too much code :)

12:07 alandipert: dcolish: yup! nothing stopping you from making an anonymous function around it at the lower scope either

12:07 frozenlock: I am however looking into the mockito wrappers.

12:07 tgoossens: i have another idea

12:08 dcolish: alandipert: actually I tried that and it didnt work

12:08 frozenlock: Do tell.

12:08 alandipert: dcolish: e.g. (apply #(BufferedReader. % 10240))

12:08 dcolish: hmm

12:08 alandipert: dcolish: well, no need for apply there even

12:08 tgoossens: frozenlock: if you are looking at mockite: then "mock(ClassName.class, new Answer(){ // this is what you can use } ")

12:08 dcolish: ok so i need a reader macro

12:08 tgoossens: in answer you get all the information about

12:08 what method was called

12:08 what arguments it has

12:09 and what the original method was (which you can still invoke if you like)

12:09 about my other idea

12:09 I remember working on a small project

12:09 arkh: ,(map (fn [x] (concat x '(3 4))) '(1 2))

12:09 clojurebot: #<IllegalArgumentException java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: Don't know how to create ISeq from: java.lang.Long>

12:09 tgoossens: where I needed to be notified if some operation happened (like addition, array add ,..)

12:10 A idea we came up with was

12:10 the idea of breakpoints

12:10 googling with this information

12:10 http://stackoverflow.com/questions/1709929/is-there-a-way-in-the-eclipse-debugger-to-be-notified-when-the-state-of-a-java-o

12:10 this might just help you

12:10 (but its not going to be easy :p )

12:10 frozenlock: Looking now, thanks!

12:11 arkh: I'm sorry for the silly question but can anybody tell me why my previous map statement doesn't work?

12:11 tgoossens: if eclipse can do it

12:11 then you can

12:11 because eclipse is written in java

12:12 da-z: tgoossens: problem is, eclipse runs a debugger in that case

12:12 tgoossens: da-z: hmmyes, in my project that was not an issue but in this case

12:13 you probably want to say like

12:13 dcolish: if I crash the clojure compiler, is that considered a bug I should report or does it depend?

12:13 tgoossens: notifyme(somerandomexistingobject)

12:14 bleh

12:16 dcolish: well regardless, it seems that anonymous fn is dropping the BufferedReader type for sample$eval8$stream__9, even with hinting

12:17 arkh: ,(map #(concat % '(3 4)) '(1 2))

12:17 clojurebot: #<IllegalArgumentException java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: Don't know how to create ISeq from: java.lang.Long>

12:17 arkh: ^ ?

12:26 ,(concat (first {:a 1 :b 2}) (second {:a 1 :b 2}))

12:26 clojurebot: (:a 1 :b 2)

12:26 arkh: ,(map #(vector (first %) (second %)) {:a 1 :b 2 :c 3})

12:26 clojurebot: ([:a 1] [:c 3] [:b 2])

12:26 arkh: ,(map #(concat (first %) (second %)) {:a 1 :b 2 :c 3})

12:27 clojurebot: #<IllegalArgumentException java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: Don't know how to create ISeq from: clojure.lang.Keyword>

12:27 arkh: ugh - that's so dumb. I wish I knew what I was missing

12:28 gfredericks: arkh: your first bit of code ends up calling ##(concat 1 '(3 4))

12:28 lazybot: java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: Don't know how to create ISeq from: java.lang.Long

12:29 gfredericks: it's not clear what you're trying to do

12:31 arkh: gfredericks: it's been a while since I've used clojure - what I'm trying to do is use a map with a function I've defined previously but it gives the error: ArityException Wrong number of args (0) passed to: core$seq clojure.lang.AFn.throwArity (AFn.java:437)

12:32 in this instance and in the ones above it seems like I can successfully use maps only sometimes

12:33 'concat' was a placeholder function I was trying to demonstrate with

12:33 gfredericks: if you use the function map with a map as the second argument, then the map is viewed as a sequence of key-value pairs

12:33 ,(seq {:a 1 :b 2 :c 3})

12:33 clojurebot: ([:a 1] [:c 3] [:b 2])

12:34 arkh: ,(let [f (fn [x] (concat x 1))] (map f '(a b c)))

12:35 clojurebot: #<IllegalArgumentException java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: Don't know how to create ISeq from: clojure.lang.Symbol>

12:35 arkh: why would the above fail?

12:35 gfredericks: well for one you're passing 1 to concat

12:35 concat takes sequences and concatenates them

12:35 1 is not a sequence

12:35 arkh: sorry

12:35 ,(let [f (fn [x] (concat x '(1)))] (map f '(a b c)))

12:35 clojurebot: #<IllegalArgumentException java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: Don't know how to create ISeq from: clojure.lang.Symbol>

12:36 gfredericks: now (and before) you're passing 'a to concat

12:36 which is also not a sequence

12:36 arkh: I thought I was passing a length 1 list

12:36 gfredericks: the second argument '(1) is a length one list

12:36 the first argument is 'a which is a symbol

12:37 arkh: oh ...

12:37 ,(let [f (fn [x] (concat (seq x) '(1)))] (map f '(a b c)))

12:37 clojurebot: #<IllegalArgumentException java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: Don't know how to create ISeq from: clojure.lang.Symbol>

12:38 gfredericks: you want it to be a single element list?

12:38 like '(a)?

12:38 arkh: yes

12:38 gfredericks: use list instead of seq there

12:38 arkh: ahhh .. that works

12:39 gfredericks: thank you so much

12:39 pellis: hi guys. i'm looking for interesting pragmatic things to study within clojure. I've played with compojure and lein, but now looking for more. (emphasis - non theoretical lispy stuff)

12:39 marcellus1: pellis: incanter?

12:40 pellis: marcellus1: I'm not that academic either to go with R/incanter, unfortunately... but do go on

12:40 marcellus1: pellis: clj-webdriver is fun

12:41 arcatan: overtone can be fun if you're into that kind of stuff

12:41 pellis: yup, looks nice. how about processing for clojure? i understand processing always gets a port to a language and it's interesting to see how more readable it is than the original Java impl.

12:44 da-z: anyone familiar with laser templates to give me a hand ?

12:46 arcatan: pellis: core.logic seems pretty cool to me, too, but i guess you might consider it pretty theoretical/academic

12:48 pellis: well, not so much. I'm kinda looking for things I can explore, that I am already familiar with, and most of the stuff I'm familiar with comes from the Web in the form of Ruby, Node, Java, etc. It makes a good learning aid this way.

12:49 I started with compojure and ring to make a good comparison with sinatra and rack, which was an enjoyable project.

12:50 I tried finding some good image processing libraries unique to clojure out there, but it always ended up lacking and I was forced to shell to imagemagick

12:52 xeqi: ~anyone

12:52 clojurebot: Just a heads up, you're more likely to get some help if you ask the question you really want the answer to, instead of "does anyone ..."

13:14 pepijndevos: can korma handle timestamps? specifically, assert if a thing is between x and y

13:16 sjl: How can I get a null byte char in clojure?

13:16 \0 is the number 0 (ascii 48)

13:17 pepijndevos: maybe just (char 0)

13:18 there are several thing like \newline and such, but not \null apparently

13:18 sjl: ah, yeah, that works

13:18 thanks

13:18 pepijndevos: I would have expected \null to work :(

13:19 sjl: yeah, same here

13:21 TimMc: ,(int \)

13:21 clojurebot: #<RuntimeException java.lang.RuntimeException: EOF while reading>

13:23 sjl: Yeah I noticed that null bytes print as a bare backslash at the repl

13:23 ,(char 0)

13:23 clojurebot: \

13:23 sjl: ,(char 13)

13:23 clojurebot: \return

13:24 TimMc: Apparently my NUL character didn't make it all the way to clojurebot.

13:24 sjl: oh nice, CR does have a literal even though it's not mentioned in the docs

13:24 wait what

13:25 ,(prn-str (char 0))

13:25 clojurebot: "\\

13:25 TimMc: &(filter #(< 2 (->> % pr-str count)) (map char (range 0 256)))

13:25 lazybot: ⇒ (\backspace \tab \newline \formfeed \return \space)

13:26 sjl: (char 0) is fine for me

13:26 from http://clojure.org/reader : Characters - preceded by a backslash: \c. \newline, \space and \tab yield the corresponding characters.

13:42 yedi: can someone help me out with this: https://gist.github.com/yedi/5024984

13:43 i try to create a partial map function and thread a list of maps through it, am i doing it incorrectly

13:47 rlander: Has anyone used Clojurescript with a language other than Clojure on the backend?

13:49 I'm about to rewrite the frontend of an app, a mess of jQuery spaghetti. I want to use Clojurescript, but I won't be able to touch the backend. So I was wondering whether there's any advantage in Clojurescript without a Clojure backend.

13:50 pellis: question about performance against scala or jruby - why is clojure so fast? given that it is as dynamic as jruby?

13:52 alandipert: rlander: i have, and i vote go for it

13:53 pepijndevos: Can I make an INSERT … SELECT with korma?

13:53 rlander: alandipert: Cool! How'd you structure the project?

13:53 alandipert: I mean, did you develop the clojurescript front end as a separate project from the backend?

13:54 alandipert: rlander: yes it's a standalone lein project using lein-cljsbuild that speaks to a PHP backend

13:56 pellis: for numeric performance, primarily because it doesn't automatically box numbers, thus unlocking a higher degree of JVM optimization

13:57 pellis: alandipert: i see, how about working with strings?

13:57 alandipert: pellis: scala numerics fast compared to jruby for same reason afaik

13:57 pellis: yes another aspect of interop/perf is that clj strings are jvm strings without decoration

13:58 pellis: (err, java.lang.String strings)

13:58 pellis: aha. thats interesting

13:58 rlander: alandipert: so, just to be clear, the php backend speaks rest and sends no html, correct?

13:58 alandipert: rlander: that is correct, JSON

13:58 pellis: im guessing jruby is RString

13:58 rlander: alandipert: Thanks. I was looking for some kind of validation that this is not a crazy proposition, and now I have it.

13:58 alandipert: rlander: we actually have an RPC layer called wigwam that does things like preserve/bubble exceptions

13:59 rlander: https://github.com/tailrecursion/wigwam

13:59 rlander: specifically https://github.com/tailrecursion/wigwam#the-rest-of-wigwam but those ideas port to other server-sides, which we are working on

14:01 rlander: alandipert: wigwam looks a bit like webmachine (which is what I have on the backend). Thanks for the links.

14:01 alandipert: rlander: sure, happy computing!

14:07 wei_: what set of libraries do you use these days to replace webnoir?

14:09 yedi: is there any scenario where binding a partial fn to a var and using that var would be different than just using the partial-fn without it being defined?

14:09 this threading example seems to show some random discrepency: https://gist.github.com/yedi/5024984

14:13 wei_: this post answered my question: http://yogthos.net/blog/33

14:13 alandipert: yedi: that partial is evaluated after -> does stuff

14:14 wei_: thanks for maintaining ilib-noir, yogthos

14:14 alandipert: yedi: so it's creating something like (partial <threaded value> map ...)

14:14 yogthos: wei_: no problem :)

14:14 yedi: ohhh

14:15 alandipert: i think i understand now

14:15 wei_: the compojure-template task was key to getting started quickly

14:15 yogthos: wei_: I've been working on http://www.luminusweb.net/ lately

14:16 wei_: it's got a lot more structured approach to making templates and I've been aggregating documentation there as well

14:17 wei_: cool, I'll check it out

14:17 yogthos: wei_: excellent, also any feedback and suggestions are appreciated :)

14:23 arrdem: TimMc: last night's bored hack is slowly evolving into an arithmatic type system implementation. what have you done to me?

14:45 TimMc: haha

14:45 *muahaha

14:46 Make sure to check out the other Clojure type systems before you get too far into your own.

15:00 arrdem: the fun part is that if I can cleanly define the domain of a predicate as a set the entire set-relational type system I'm creating here falls into place eligantly

15:00 feels a lot like what I've read about Haskell's type system.

15:28 JoshInc: anybody here implement Business intelligence; analysis, graphs, dashboards and reports provide important mechanisms for performance evaluation and exploitation of information?

15:29 about daily data captured from municipal systems (Accounting, Tax, Education, Health, etc.). After the data is validated and processed, we need to exploit them, or transform a mountain of data into useful information that can assist the government in its day-to-day.

15:32 wei_: using compojure, where's the best place to put the one-time database connection code?

15:32 arrdem: wei_: typically you will have it in server.clj as part of your init setup

15:34 TimMc: so why isn't this sort of thing in clojure.core? it seems dead easy now that I'm trying to do it.

15:35 clojure-newb: hi… where can I find dissoc-in for clojure 1.4 ? surprised to not find it :-)

15:38 arrdem: clojure-newb: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/14488150/how-to-write-a-dissoc-in-command-for-clojure

15:38 clojure-newb: arrdem: oh… core.incubator, coming in 1.5 ?

15:40 arrdem: clojure-newb: I would just use the dissoc-in defined there since it isn't in core yet.

15:40 throw it in an "msc.clj" file and :require it in where you need it.

15:40 clojure-newb: arrdem: thx for heads up

15:41 arrdem: clojure-newb: well.. it looks like you could just add core.incubator to your project dependancies and use it that way..

15:42 I'd suggest that approach.

15:42 clojure-newb: yeah, I'd rather

15:42 arrdem: technomancy or someone, is core.incubator dead?

15:45 TimMc: arrdem: Why not in core? Well, probably for philosophical reasons.

15:45 Besides the desire to keep clojure.core small, Rich probably wouldn't like the pseudotypes stuff.

15:47 gillies: is there an easy way to write json (mocks for testing) instead of doing "{\"foo\":\"bar\"}"

15:47 i was thinking maybe a json writing macro, but not sure if thats the way to go

15:48 TimMc: A macro would be bad.

15:48 Cheshire is a god lib for generating JSON.

15:49 alandipert: maybe a tagged literal?

15:49 gillies: i want to actually write it by hand though in this example

15:49 not just generate it from clojure data structures

15:49 TimMc: That seems counter to your original question.

15:50 gillies: it counters the macro suggestion

15:50 but i explicitly said i wasn't sure thats what i wanted

15:51 the actual problem is that when i parse json it converts the key data to strings not keywords

15:51 i bet theres an option in chesire i can set to change that though

15:54 aaah

15:54 in README theres an example

15:54 derp

15:54 * gillies goes back to corner

16:06 ravster: hello all

16:10 tgoossens: Any ideas for a clojure meetup. I'm organising one in belgium (for the first time). I think that an introductory session to the basics is already a good starting point

16:12 S11001001: tgoossens: depends on your clojurian/non-clojurian ratio

16:12 tgoossens: reading the reactions

16:13 i have the impression that there will be mainly people interested in clojure but not really active in clojure

16:13 so i guess

16:13 that they expect something to tell them "what clojure could mean to them"

16:13 TimMc: tgoossens: Get Sam Aaron to do an Overtone talk, that'll do it.

16:14 tgoossens: timmc: unfortunately he lives in the uk :)

16:16 TimMc: Close enough.

16:16 arrdem: tgoossens: live webcast?

16:17 telepresent presentations are possible after all..

16:17 tgoossens: arrdem: that maybe something to consider. Strange I did not think of that ...

16:17 arrdem: tgoossens: just eliminates a lot of hassle with travel and soforth.

16:20 in retrospect whitespace-mode is a bad idea.. my indentation OCD only gets worse...

16:27 gillies: &(#=)

16:27 lazybot: java.lang.IllegalStateException: clojure.lang.LispReader$ReaderException: EvalReader not allowed when *read-eval* is false.

16:27 gillies: &(doc #=)

16:27 lazybot: java.lang.IllegalStateException: clojure.lang.LispReader$ReaderException: EvalReader not allowed when *read-eval* is false.

16:28 arrdem: ,(doc =)

16:28 clojurebot: "([x] [x y] [x y & more]); Equality. Returns true if x equals y, false if not. Same as Java x.equals(y) except it also works for nil, and compares numbers and collections in a type-independent manner. Clojure's immutable data structures define equals() (and thus =) as a value, not an identity, comparison."

16:28 gillies: whats the diff between #= and =?

16:29 tgoossens: arrdem: a screencast might be something interesting for later iterations of the meetup. But a bit risky for the first iteration I believe :)

16:30 arrdem: ,(doc =?)

16:30 clojurebot: Excuse me?

16:30 arrdem: tgoossens: depends on who your speaker is.

16:30 I agree that in-person would be preferred, but if you get someone awesome a live remote presentation could be OK

16:31 tgoossens: i'll be sure to discuss it with my co-organisators ;-)

16:42 muhoo: ,(map (juxt type identity) (let [x 1] `[~x x 'x '~x ~'x]))

16:42 clojurebot: ([java.lang.Long 1] [clojure.lang.Symbol sandbox/x] [clojure.lang.Cons (quote sandbox/x)] [clojure.lang.Cons (quote 1)] [clojure.lang.Symbol x])

16:42 muhoo: ok, why Cons?

16:45 arrdem: what the...

16:46 muhoo: oh.. the pair (quote 1) is a cons list

16:46 muhoo: OIC, it's an expression (quote 1), and i guess that's a cons cell, really, a list of 2 items.

16:47 interestingly my repl prints it as '1 not (quote 1), so it was a mystery

16:50 TimMc: gillies: #= is special reader syntax that you shouldn't use. = is just a function.

16:51 Or rather, clojure.core/= is a var that contains the equality function.

16:51 gillies: TimMc: i had to use it when i was doing a case statement

16:51 TimMc: Interesting usage.

16:51 What did you have to create?

16:52 gillies: (case (class {:foo "bar"}) #=clojure.lang.PersistentArrayMap "blah" )

16:52 just using class name won't work

16:52 alex_baranosky: has anyone come up with a script to harness Emacs for reformat Clojure files?

16:53 TimMc: gillies: Ah, classes. You are aware that maps won't always have the same class?

16:53 gillies: fml

16:53 heh

16:54 TimMc: You may not want case.

16:54 arrdem: alex_baranosky: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/11423566/how-do-i-intelligently-re-indent-clojure-in-emacs

16:54 ~google

16:54 clojurebot: Gabh mo leithscéal?

16:54 arrdem: damnit.

16:54 clojurebot: Huh?

16:54 gillies: ~wtf

16:54 clojurebot: Huh?

16:54 metellus: ~google

16:54 clojurebot: excusez-moi

16:54 arrdem: ~gourds

16:54 clojurebot: SQUEEZE HIM!

16:55 alex_baranosky: arrdem: what I want is a way to harness Emacs from a script

16:55 gillies: heh

16:55 alex_baranosky: and reformat a list of file by name

16:57 arrdem: alex_baranosky: your best bet is probably an emacs lisp script to open buffers, envoke the reformat functions and then flush them.

16:57 alex_baranosky: is there any easy way to call Emacs functions from the command line?

16:57 * arrdem composes himself.

16:57 arrdem: no.

16:57 alex_baranosky: lame

16:57 joegallo: alex_baranosky: --batch

16:58 arrdem: okay fine emacs -f <code>

16:58 joegallo: which is to say, yes.

16:58 alex_baranosky: joegallo: nice. thanks, investigating

16:58 arrdem: joegallo: why would you ever want --eval, -f, or --batch?

16:58 alex_baranosky: basically I have script that gives me all the changed files on a feature branch. BEofre pulling into master I want to reformat them using Emacs.

16:58 arrdem: just seems like a terrible idea.

16:59 joegallo: arrdem: i have a powerful elisp interpreter right here -- why shouldn't i use it for interpreting elisp?

16:59 * arrdem forgets that emacs is an operating system not an editor

16:59 joegallo: alex_baranosky: consider http://www.gnu.org/software/emacs/manual/html_node/elisp/Batch-Mode.html an interesting starting point

17:01 fwiw, the use i've seen is somewhat similar to your use case alex_baranosky, as a pre-commit hook to make sure clojure code is formatted per clojure-mode

17:03 alex_baranosky: joegallo: yeah that's essentially what we're going for. I am making a script that takes all changed files on a feature brach, slam hounds them, reformats them and then checks them with kinit and eastwood. Then we run that before pulling into master, so we don't have to waste time on fiddling with namespaces and formatting while doing development

17:03 kibit*

17:04 joegallo: godspeed, if it works out well, that's probably something worth writing a blog post about ;)

17:05 alex_baranosky: joegallo: good idea about the blog post

17:05 ryanf: wow, clojure's built-in map is surprisingly complicated

17:11 meegofl: Hi

17:11 I need help with annoying weird problem

17:11 http://pastebin.com/pXtAUVzj

17:12 in SelectFromTable i call a function ListRecordsMatchConditions

17:12 i print the return value in the ListRecordsMatchConditions and get proper result

17:12 but the print on the calling function is nil

17:17 frenchyp: meegofl: could it be that you are printing the returned-value from (when setOperation ..) and that it is nil?

17:19 meegofl: frenchyp: hmm... got a point

17:20 frenchyp: checking this now, 10x!

17:20 frenchyp: if you are expecting to return tempList, you are going to need to re-design this function

17:20 cool

17:22 also, I don't think you need the nil on line 25, you can just remove it

17:28 alex_baranosky: joegallo: I got it to work actually, except for one issue, the reformatting is messing up the code. I owner if I need to manually switch to clojure-mode for .clj files so it will format correctly

17:37 joegallo: odd -- have you tried explicitly requiring clojure-mode?

17:38 i dunno how ours does it, it's just always worked... i didn't write it

17:43 alex_baranosky: joegallo: if I explicitly call (lisp-mode) I get a much better formatting(but still wrong of course). With that as my proof of concept I tried to call (clojure-mode) but for this I get this error: "Symbol's function definition is void: clojure-mode"

17:47 this is what I have so far: https://www.refheap.com/paste/11765

17:51 Raynes: alex_baranosky: There is a Bash language setting.

17:51 :p

17:51 alex_baranosky: :P

17:52 Raynes: I am mere inches from getting this to work

17:56 alandipert: alex_baranosky: have you considered writing in clojure and using pprint/code-dispatch?

17:56 i've never used code-dispatch myself though so i don't know how it compares to clojure-mode

17:57 meegofl: how can i perform compare like < > on 2 strings?

17:57 alex_baranosky: alandipert: I haven't even thought of the idea until you mentioned it

17:57 meegofl: like (> "c" "b")

17:57 alex_baranosky: I'm also not sure how print will compare to clojure-mode

17:59 Raynes: Well...

17:59 You can get the integer representation of characters by doing ##(int \c)

17:59 lazybot: ⇒ 99

17:59 Raynes: So I imagine you could compare those integers.

18:00 metellus: ,(compare "c" "b")

18:00 clojurebot: 1

18:00 metellus: is that what you want?

18:00 Raynes: I assumed he actually wanted < and >.

18:02 meegofl: Raynes: 10x but is there a way (maybe import from java / clojure.string) to do it on strings?

18:03 Raynes: compare

18:03 What metellus just did is what you want.

18:03 &(compare "a" "b")

18:03 lazybot: ⇒ -1

18:03 Raynes: &(compare "b" "b")

18:03 lazybot: ⇒ 0

18:03 Raynes: &(compare "b" "a")

18:03 lazybot: ⇒ 1

18:04 meegofl: Raynes: got it! 10x!

18:04 Raynes: Negative number = less than, 0 = equal to, positive number = greater than.

18:12 terom: Hmm, I'm trying to override a method with proxy. This method gets called in the base class constructor. It seems that the base class constructor calls the base class method, not the method defined in proxy. Is this a limitation of proxy or a bug?

18:18 Natch: anyone on OSX that could tell me the result of (subs (System/getProperty "os.name") 0 3) ?

18:18 ibdknox: "Mac"

18:19 Natch: ibdknox: thank you

18:22 TimMc: I just wrote a little library function to do paging calculations: https://www.refheap.com/paste/11770 (given a total and current page, tell you whether there's a next page, what the last page index is, etc.)

18:22 Are there any other properties it should compute?

18:36 joegallo: alex_baranosky: i think you need to (require 'clojure-mode)

18:36 otherwise it wouldn't be defined...

18:37 Raynes: TimMc: That seems large for paging calculations.

18:54 johnmn3: feb 20th New York CLUG:

18:54 David Bergman will demo his ClojureScript wrapper for the cross-target mobile platform Titanium, which allows developers to write native mobile apps for iPhone, Android, Blackberry in Clojure.

18:54 where can I get to that wrapper?

19:09 devth: is there a function that wraps another fn foo, making "foo" behave as identity?

19:10 reasoning: run foo for its side-effects (e.g. swap!) but still make it useful for (comp bar foo)

19:22 TimMc: Raynes: It's intended to support a paging widget on a web page.

19:32 terom: I made a gist of my problem with proxy: https://gist.github.com/tmatinla/5026427 - from the doc for proxy ("creates a instance of a proxy class") I would think that the overridden method would be taken into account in constructor, but it is not...

19:36 alandipert: terom: does it in java?

19:36 terom: i vaguely remember seeing that somewhere as a java no-no

19:36 terom: calling overridable methods in a constructor, that is

19:37 terom: alandipert: it does, see the gist

19:40 alandipert: yeah, it's probably bad practice, in my case it's some library code (Apache HttpClient to be specific) that needs to be overridden to plugin some special behaviour

19:41 I would have hoped not to write Java code for that, but in this case it's not a big problem (or maybe I can use gen-class instead of proxy if that's not too tedious). I was just wondering if this behaviour with proxy is correct...

19:46 qizwiz: consider me a newbie to clojure (though I've played with other lisps). I'm going through 4clojure koans. On #19 (http://www.4clojure.com/problem/19#prob-title), the answer I came up with was #(first (reverse %))

19:47 with some help from stackoverflow. The question I have is what does '#(' mean?

19:47 ryanf: what's the best testing setup for clojure? lazytest?

19:47 or does everyone just use clojure.test?

19:48 I'm most interested in having the tests run automatically on file modification, and then I'm also kind of interested in bdd-style syntax if available

19:48 qizwiz: I've searched sharp-paren, hash-paren, pound-paren.

19:48 terom: qizwiz: it's a shorthand for anonymous function

19:48 qizwiz: ah!

19:48 thank you

19:49 alandipert: ryanf: midje may float your boat, i think it does that stuff https://github.com/marick/Midje

19:50 ryanf: cool, thanks for the tip

19:50 alandipert: terom: you're at the point where i'd personally give up write java stub

19:51 *and write

19:51 qizwiz: and now i've found it here: http://clojure.org/reader

19:51 thanks

19:51 terom: alandipert: yeah, that seems the easiest way

20:03 Raynes: ryanf: https://github.com/Raynes/laser/blob/master/test/me/raynes/laser_test.clj is a simple midje example.

20:04 ryanf: cool, thanks. seems like pretty nice syntax

20:08 arrdem: would anyone use static typechecking for pseudotypes? I'm just contemplating the evil I must commit to implement such checking and questioning its worth.

20:09 Raynes: ryanf: My tests look a little funky because I'm testing higher order functions and thus have to call the functions that the functions return (and thus I end up with ((foo x) bar) => y in a lot of places).

20:29 ryanf: can anyone think of a reason that I would sometimes get "CompilerException java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: Don't know how to create ISeq from: java.lang.Character" for this code:

20:29 https://gist.github.com/rf-/76ff8e83d0038f42cb49

20:29 oh never mind

20:29 I am a huge idiot

20:35 Zerker: I saw a comic once, which outlined the "Idiot test": a) Grab a coworker, b) explain to them what your code is doing, step by step, c) loudly proclaim "I'm an idiot!" and proceed to fix your program.

20:35 Don't worry, we've all been there :)

20:47 Raynes: Welp. Just released https://github.com/Raynes/laser 1.0.0

20:48 TimMc: schweet

20:48 Maybe I'll try using it for my new gallery website.

20:48 I've got it set up pretty nicely with Enlive right now.

20:48 Oh hey, thoughts on two different if-let+ macro implementations? https://www.refheap.com/paste/11773

20:49 One wraps the else-clause in a thunk and emits multiple calls for the multiple else locations, the other just spits out the else-expression in its entirety for each else clause.

20:49 *else-expression in a thunk

20:59 ryanf: I feel like there must be a more idiomatic way of doing this?

20:59 (assoc world :players (conj (world :players) player))

21:00 warz: with ring, i have some middleware that checks for an access token header, and if it doesn't exist it returns an http error. right now, i wrap the entire handler with this middleware, so all requests are subject to those constraints.

21:01 but in reality id like this to be more opt-in on a per route handler basis

21:01 is that possible? like wrap a single handler with a middleware?

21:01 Raynes: ryanf: (update-in word [:players] conj player)

21:01 ryanf: Except I meant world, but you get the point.

21:01 ryanf: Raynes: !! thanks

21:01 weavejester: warz: Yes, that's the whole point of Compojure - it's handlers all the way down.

21:02 TimMc: Raynes: The examples in the Laser readme would probably benefit from a note about alternating selectors and transformers.

21:03 Raynes: TimMc: Pull request! :D

21:05 TimMc: maaaybe

21:06 Oh, I can just edit right in the browser, yeah?

21:06 Raynes: Yep.

21:06 Github <3

21:18 TimMc: o/

21:19 akhudek: I'm running into some trouble with clojurescripts advanced compilation. There is a missing extern, but I'm having trouble tracking down what it is. Is there any trick to debugging these types of errors?

21:20 Raynes: Yeah, source maps I think. Which we do not have.

21:20 akhudek: :-(

21:36 TimMc: "Merge made by octopus." fills my heart with glee.

21:36 clifton: watching a Guy Steele talk from 2009. Clojure's list type, by default, is a 64-ary tree?

21:36 headshot: clifton: url?

21:37 clifton: http://vimeo.com/6624203

21:37 he only mentions clojure toward the very end

21:37 TimMc: clifton: Vectors are 32-way trees, but I think all lists are linked lists.

21:38 clifton: yeah, i assumed all lists were linkedlists ala lisp

21:38 and i know vectors are 32-ary trees currently, so i assume he was talking about vectors and not lists, but in the slide it does say list

21:42 TimMc: You could do some archaeology in the Clojure source control. Maybe lists used to be implemented with trees.

21:43 However, I'd think that lists have an implicit contract that if you don't hold onto the head, the head can be GC'd.

21:43 I could be wrong, but I imagine any other behavior would surprise quite a few folks.

21:46 clifton: well, you're definitely right, that is a fundamental property of lists

21:46 given that calling last on a list is in linear time, ill just assume he was talking about vectors

21:46 fast forward to 56m in the link

21:47 made me scratch my head

21:47 TimMc: Can't do videos at the moment.

21:51 headshot: clifton, thanks, looks like an intersting watch

21:52 clifton: yeah it's a really fascinating talk, i had to pause a few of the slides to fully parse all the operations, but hey, that's the advantage of watching lectures online

21:52 headshot: yeah "pause" is invaluable

21:56 Sgeo_: What talk?

21:56 ivan: <clifton> http://vimeo.com/6624203

21:56 clifton: ption: EOF while reading>

21:56 17:51 < bendlas> ,(unchecked-multiply (Long. 0xcafebabe) 0xcafebabe)

21:56 17:51 < clojurebot> #<ArithmeticException java.lang.ArithmeticException: integer overflow>

21:56 17:52 < hiredman> bendlas: unchecked math only works on primitives

21:56 17:52 < bendlas> this is a bug, right?

21:56 17:52 < amalloy> ,(unchecked-multiply (unchecked-int 0xcafebabe) (unchecked-int 0xcafebabe))

21:56 17:52 < clojurebot> 790811295510209796

21:56 17:52 < bendlas> so unchecked multiply defaulting to checked multiply when faced with boxed values is a feature?

21:56 17:53 < TimMc> That's surprising and unexpected behavior.

21:56 17:53 < Frozenlock> Is there some css and compojure functions to pretty-print clojure code in a webpage? (with colors and all that sweet stuff)

21:56 17:54 < hiredman> bendlas: I doubt anyone has bothered to care because most people who want one want the other

21:56 ivan: clifton: might want to kill your client, could take a while to send all that

22:15 headshot: hehe, i love his comment on Fortress

22:15 clifton: which one?

22:16 jcromartie: why would I want to use clojure.data.xml over clojure.xml

22:16 headshot: about heavy use of operator overloading, and hoping for tasteful use

22:17 clifton: some part of me wonders why his team wouldnt be better spent extending haskell

22:17 jcromartie: (for reading XML into a Clojure data structure)
