kpreidSBCL: fd-handlers are thread-specific, right? right?
nyefRight.
kpreidOkay, so *that's* not the problem...
nyefThe handler list is a per-thread binding.
I'd ask you what you're up to, but I'm looking through multiple stack traces trying to figure out WTF is going on.
luisHmm, I was reading SBCL's STYLE and it says "Phrases are not capitalized." and "Sentences are capitalized." What's the difference between a phrase and a sentence?
kpreidnyef: I'm making my event-loop system capable of running communicating event loops in multiple threads.
samblesee Strunk's ``The Elements of Style''
kpreidnyef: This is the first threaded program I've written.
nyefHunh. It looks like gdb can't backtrace through a signal handler invocation worth a damn.
Riastradhluis, a phrase is not a complete statement, question, or command. For example, `a phrase' is a phrase, but `This is a sentence.' is a sentence.
nyefAnd I say this because it pulls a completely bogus frame pointer out of its ass when it hits the signal handler frame.
oudeis_is there a way to set buffer package in slime except by sticking in-package form in it?
nyefoudeis_: -*- Package: FOO -*-
kpreidnyef: are CL streams thread-safe?
oudeis_well, by calling some elisp function i mean, without changing the buffer contents at all
luisRiastradh: I see, thanks.
kpreidahem, less vague: if I do (format *trace-output* "blah") from two threads, how bizarre can the results be?
Riastradhnyef, actually, that doesn't do anything.
oudeis_: M-: (setq slime-buffer-package:connlocal "insert package name here")
Don't tell anyone I told you that, though.
oudeis_Riastradh, thanks
nyefkpreid: I don't know, I don't use threads that way.
kpreidokay.
nyef(Hell, I barely use threads at all. Damned things are -scary-.)
actionkpreid agrees.
kpreidagrees.
ModiusAnybody on here know much about Screamer?
Got a question about ordering the "results"
kpreidnyef: I'm doing this only for two things: making use of multiple processors, and terminating a runaway computation (which has interruption points, yes)
oudeis_Riastradh, although that doesn't seem to work. it evals, returns the name of the package, but the buffer package does not change. maybe my slime is too old
faxcl-irc crashes due to unicode
syntaxfreeclhs loop

Riastradhoudeis_, try setting `slime-buffer-package' as well.
...oops, it's `slime-lisp-package' that is a connection-local variable, not `slime-buffer-package', anyway.
actionRiastradh vanishes.
Riastradhvanishes.
syntaxfreewhat would be idiomatic Lisp for what "iterate" does in Haskell?
faxwhat does iterate do in haskell?
syntaxfreeiterate f x = x : iterate f (f x)
(:) is cons.
