|slyrus||gigamonkey: the executive summary is short and sweet. lisp forms that are translated into xhtml/latex/pdf|
pkhuong: rif and aj rossini and I were working on a CFFI-based clsr-alike called RCLG. Personally, I like the gcc-xml-ffi approach even though it's sb-alien specific.
|pkhuong--||bah, portability ;)|
|g32k1||Good afternoon people|
|g32k1||Jeje i started looking for a job and can only hear a thing, "java", I hate. Do you guy think that awful trend is gonna last? :'(|
|cein||well, it's not going to be replaced by lisp if that's what you're thinking|
but i think eventually something else will usurp it
|g32k1||cein: i know. But java is pretty awful.|
it's not my favorite language, but it gets things done
|Zhivago||I'm hoping that .net will work out, and these problems will go away.|
|g32k1||I can it too, but some stuff like only single inheritance irritate me|
|pjb||Well, java is perhaps slightly better than PHP...|
|g32k1||All languajes have their advantajes, but i think it's a pretty bad idea to use the same languaje for al purpouses|
And since you have a lot of demand there's a lot of offer, so get a good paid job is even harder
|Zhivago||I'm very glad that java is popular|
|meowarrior||who ever wrote CFFI deserves a big chocolate chip cookie|
it's so straight foward
|beach||hey slyrus; what's up?|
|slyrus||oh, not much. a little pork belly & fennel with a nice williams-selyem pinot|
|slyrus||indeed. if I were over this cold I'd probably be enjoying the WS even more... oh well.|
|beach||reading AMOP mostly|
|slyrus||a good read|
|slyrus||I've been avoiding the more arcane tomes of the PCL source|
|beach||I started looking into them the other day, and they look pretty strange in places.|
Plus, the version I got has some code for machines or OSes that no longer exist or at least are irrelevant.
And I am getting more and more convinced that caller-side specialization is needed to make things very fast.
I mean, how often do you see (defmethod foo ((bar bar)) (baz bar)) where baz is another GF, so we have some information about the argument when we call baz.
I am sure (say) McCLIM is full of that kind of code.
damn computer has started crashing regularly
