around a channel was one of my thoughts.  For the library I'm using, I'm just not
sure if using interfaces makes sense :s

01:44 < ajray-fh> whats an ideomatic way to do a compile time check of a
variable value
01:45 < ajray-fh> in C what i would want is #if foo <= 1 ;; #error foo
must be greater than 1 ;; #endif
01:45 < exch> Go doesnt have macro stuff I'm afraid
01:46 < ajray-fh> i want to generate a compile-time error (instead of a
runtime one) for this
01:46 < ajray-fh> not possible?
01:46 < jessta_> not possible
01:46 < ajray-fh> hmm
01:46 < exch> I'm not sure you can wthout writing your own macro
01:47 < ajray-fh> i'd image something like a compile time check special
01:47 < ajray-fh> like error(conditional)
01:47 < jessta_> you can make a tool to detect the issue, or panic(), or use
types to do it
01:48 < ajray-fh> i think this could fit in well with the language
01:48 < ajray-fh> provides a tool for detecting bugs at compiletime instead
of runtime
01:49 < str1ngs> ajray-fh: is it a arch related check?
01:49 < ajray-fh> str1ngs: nope, simple global var.  i want compile to fail
if its less than 2
01:49 < str1ngs> ajray-fh: also you can possibly use init() for this.  not
compile time of course.
01:49 < ajray-fh> exactly
01:49 < str1ngs> ah maybe init is better then
01:51 < ajray-fh> maybe
01:51 < ajray-fh> go was made to scale well to large codebase projects (like
in the "thinking about go" recent thread)
01:51 < ajray-fh> i think this would be good for those, because you could
halt a bad compile midway through
01:51 < ajray-fh> instead of going through everything, going into testing
and getting caught there
01:52 < str1ngs> the test framework is pretty simple and easy.  you could
make one test just for this :P
01:53 < str1ngs> all: test

01:57 < ajray-fh> also init is close to the solution, but AFAICT its still

02:08 < ajray-fh> str1ngs: thanks, and maybe thats the solution i'm looking
02:09 < ajray-fh> if i have 3 go files: a.go b.go c.go and three test files
a_test.go b_test.go c_test.go
02:09 < ajray-fh> and i make test, will it wait to compile all 3 go files
before testing them, or will it test in parallel?

02:14 < str1ngs> ajray-fh: not sure, you'll have to test that.
02:14 < str1ngs> I generally use one test file.  but none of my projects are
that large.
02:15 < jessta_> ajray-fh: you don't test files, you test packages
02:15 -!- crazy2be [~crazy2be@d75-152-167-124.abhsia.telus.net] has joined
02:15 < crazy2be> how do you test if two slices are equal?
02:16 < vsmatck> crazy2be: The reflect package has a function called
"DeepEqual" which can do that.
02:16 < jessta_> crazy2be: also, a for loop will do that
02:16 < str1ngs> crazy2be: are they strings?
02:16 < vsmatck> I'd bet the for loop would be faster if that matters to
02:16 < str1ngs> crazy2be: because I have a insane way to test them :P

02:17 < crazy2be> []string
02:18 < jessta_> crazy2be: also if you just want to compare the slices and
not it's contains you can just use ==
02:18 < crazy2be> jessta_: What does that compare?
02:18 < crazy2be> != wasn't working
02:18 < crazy2be> invalid operation: tp != ex (slice can only be compared to
02:18 < str1ngs> crazy2be: what I do is sort.SliceString(a).Sort();
sort.SliceString(b).Sort() then Join them both
02:19 < str1ngs> ie strings.Join(a," ") != strings.Join(b," ")
02:20 < jessta_> crazy2be: ah, so apparently you can't do that, hmmm..weird
02:21 < jessta_> i guess it's not that useful and more likely to be used
02:22 < crazy2be> reflect.DeepEqual is exactly what I was looking for, since
it's only testing code
02:22 < crazy2be> performance doesn't matter
02:22 < crazy2be> much at all

02:37 < crazy2be> this program i'm writing has a lot of recursion
02:37 < crazy2be> i'm afraid that there's a stack overflow somewhere waiting
to happen
02:37 < crazy2be> or rather, an infinitely growing stack
02:39 < jessta_> perhaps use more for loops

02:42 < crazy2be> vsmatck: I've done that a few times with other go programs
02:42 < crazy2be> the inf stack is nice in theory
02:42 < crazy2be> but ends up blowing up in your face during testing
02:42 < crazy2be> requiring a reboot or patience
02:43 < crazy2be> perhaps on other OSes the memory is managed better
02:43 < crazy2be> so the rest of the OS doesn't die when one program wants
02:44 < crazy2be> (better from a desktop persepective)
02:46 < vsmatck> ya I've had that happen on occasion.  Start hitting the
disk and it takes a minute to switch to a terminal to kill the thing.
02:48 < crazy2be> I only have a gig of ram
02:48 < crazy2be> so it takes it a matter of seconds (if that) to fill all
available memory
02:48 < crazy2be> after that point, I can't do anything really

03:35 < askhader> What are some of your favorite db and storage libraries?
03:35 < crazy2be> filesystem + json :P
03:35 < askhader> =P
03:35 < askhader> What's the performance like on a setup like that?
03:35 < crazy2be> depends
03:36 < crazy2be> how many users are you planning to have?
03:36 < crazy2be> i'm not sure how well it scales
03:36 < askhader> Users of?
03:36 < vsmatck> Yeah.  DB choice is relative to what you're doing.
03:36 < askhader> I'm goin to be doing a lot of writes and reads.  I need a
databse methinks.
03:36 < askhader> This is true.
03:36 < crazy2be> but I can tell you it runs fine for a couple users on a
233 Mhz with 128MB ram
03:36 < crazy2be> askhader: it really does depend on what you are doing
03:37 < crazy2be> sql is great if the relationships are really important
03:37 < askhader> I'm going to be basically parsing and logging some rss
feeds quite actively.
03:37 < crazy2be> but a filesystem is better if you only are ever
referencing something by ID
03:37 < crazy2be> or almost always only
03:37 < askhader> Relationships are nice to be honest.  I was hoping to use
mysql's foreign keys.
03:37 < askhader> But I can infer relationships by storing id's.
03:38 < vsmatck> Is this going to be a web service or desktop application?
03:39 < askhader> This is going to populate a database that will be accessed
by a web service.
03:39 < askhader> Certainly.
03:39 < askhader> Sorry I shouldn't say database.
03:39 < crazy2be> anyone know of a FormStruct() function that populates the
fields of a struct based on form input?
03:41 < crazy2be> askhader: accessed in what way?
03:41 < crazy2be> what bits are important?
03:41 -!- benjack [~benjack@] has joined #go-nuts
03:42 < askhader> crazy2be: There are two web access points to this data.
First, infrequently but resource intensively by administrators and second
extremely frequently by users.
03:42 < vsmatck> redis and mongodb are two popular options for stuff that
scales.  They're both quite different from eachother.
03:42 < askhader> I
03:42 < askhader> II'd sat 70% of the data is valuable to both stages.
03:43 < askhader> Interesting.
03:43 < vsmatck> If the amount of data is sure to exceed the amount of main
memory you have in the server then you shouldn't use redis.
03:43 < askhader> Yes, I was given this advice today.
03:44 < askhader> Does redis consequently perform much faster?
03:45 < vsmatck> Mongo is fast up to the point where your data set fits
entirely in memory.  It's also good for situations where the dataset doesn't fit
entirely in memory, but where the dataset has just a few hot spots.
03:46 -!- benjack [~benjack@] has quit [Ping timeout: 250 seconds]
03:46 < askhader> Hmm, which of the two have superior golang support?
03:46 < vsmatck> Redis doesn't have a good way of ehh "swapping" to disk.
03:46 -!- elephants [~elephants@173-230-160-81.cable.teksavvy.com] has quit
[Remote host closed the connection]
03:46 < vsmatck> Both of them have high quality clients available in Go.
03:46 < askhader> vsmatck: That's alarming
03:46 < askhader> I'd be concerned about data loss.
03:47 < vsmatck> Ah. Redis does persistence with a append only file.  You
can adjust how often it appends.  People generally do once a minute or so.
03:47 < vsmatck> Mongo also has better cluster support right now.
03:48 < vsmatck> But I'm not sure if that's an issue for you.
03:48 < askhader> Not yet ;)
03:48 < vsmatck> heh.  It's good to keep these things in mind.  Don't want
your service falling over if people start using it.
03:49 < askhader> Indeed.
03:49 < vsmatck> The author of redis is sitting by the ocean in italy
working on cluster support right now.  His clustering plan is higher performance.
03:49 < askhader> I'm not surprised.
03:49 < askhader> It's an important feature.
03:49 < vsmatck> Probably not an issue for a web service tho.

04:23 < askhader> Hmm
04:23 < askhader> Them I'm not sure I understand the question.
04:25 < vsmatck> You'd want to make sure you have the latest release checked
out with mercurial.  If you use tip and rely upon third party libraries you'll see
breakage often.
04:26 < askhader> Latest version of go?
04:27 < jessta_> askhader: there is release, weekly and tip
04:27 < askhader> I see.
04:27 < askhader> I probably want weekly.
04:27 < vsmatck> Ya. The tip is the absolute latest version.  Every once in
a while they specify a verion to be "release".  Generally third party packages
stay sync'd up to release.
04:27 < askhader> How can I determine which repo I've built?

12:19 -!- alehorst [~alehorst@] has joined
12:19 < hokapoka> Both the string that's passed to Sprintf, and the []string
are not known until runtime.  Currently I'm examining the string and locating the
indexes that are passed and then building the string "manually".
12:20 < str1ngs> hokapoka: but you can also us slice notation.  so
fmt.Printf("%v %v",i[2:], i[:len(i-1)])
12:21 < str1ngs> not tested syntax but you get the idea

[Quit: Leaving]
12:22 < str1ngs> hokapoka: the first example you might have to dynamically
create the formatter.  ie format := strings.Repeat(len(i),"%s ")
12:24 -!- prip [~foo@host54-134-dynamic.42-79-r.retail.telecomitalia.it] has
joined #go-nuts
12:26 < hokapoka> Right, the formatter is defined, and it accompanies a
12:26 < str1ngs> I
12:26 < str1ngs> I'd have to get a better idea though, can you break it down
to a simple test case?
12:26 < str1ngs> then paste it to a paste service.  but my guess is you want
to use slice notation
12:28 < hokapoka> For example, the expression : ([a-z]+).([0-9]+).(ext)
returns 4 Matches for "foo.123.ext" And the user might then like to convert it to
"foo.ext" or "foo.ext?id=123"
12:30 < hokapoka> So the position of the Submatch will be passed as the
formatter, "$1.$3" for "foo.ext" and "$1.$3?=$2";
12:31 < hokapoka> ATM I've got it working by examining the formatter for
indexes and then generating the string by concatinating the Submatches and the
rest of the formatter.
12:32 < hokapoka> I was just wondering if it was possible to pass indexes to
the Sprintf.
12:32 < str1ngs> you can but in the form of slice notation
12:33 < str1ngs> which you can print out with say %v then strip [ ]
12:33 < str1ngs> but that does not help your ordering so you might have to
create a new slice that orders they way you want
12:34 < str1ngs> there is also the exp/datafmt package . but it was pretty
complex when I looked at it.
12:34 < str1ngs> but..  you can attach a formatter to things so there might
be a way to do it that way.
12:35 < hokapoka> Okay, well I've got it working this "manual" way ATM.
12:36 < hokapoka> I'll crack on with the rest of my stuff and come back to
it another day if I find it causes trouble
12:37 < hokapoka> Basically it just trying to replicate some of the
mod_rewrite functionality that's avaliable for apache.
12:38 < str1ngs> I know this probably doesnt help much.  more like just
giving you options.  I'd have to see some code to be more helpful.

14:23 < ArgonneIntern> I'm doing some channel testing to see how closing a
channel works and I can't seem to get it right.  This is what I have so far,
http://www.pastie.org/2237400 when I close the channel the go routine still hangs
and doesn't exit the for loop.
14:24 <+iant> don't write an infinite for loop, write "select { }"
14:24 < skelterjohn|work> the first line of nomnom() seems to be a
replacement for "for i := range someChan {"
14:24 < ArgonneIntern> I thought to get the false you needed the form I used
14:25 < ArgonneIntern> the multi return form
14:25 < skelterjohn|work> range reads values off the chan until the channel
is closed
14:25 < skelterjohn|work> i'm sure it does something similar to what you
wrote, except in optimized asm
14:26 < ArgonneIntern> same result
14:26 < skelterjohn|work> and maybe a GOMAXPROCS issue
14:26 < skelterjohn|work> yes, i didn't expect that to change anything
14:26 < ArgonneIntern> ohh crap
14:26 <+iant> don't write an infinite for loop, write "select { }"
14:26 < ArgonneIntern> you're right
14:26 < ArgonneIntern> no it is the same issue I had before
14:26 < skelterjohn|work> select {} at hte bottom would also fix it
14:26 < ArgonneIntern> man that is so annoying I must say
14:26 < skelterjohn|work> since it won't burn cycles and hog the process
14:27 < aiju> you have weird coding habits
14:27 < skelterjohn|work> it is only an issue when you do things like "for
{}", really
14:27 < ArgonneIntern> yes adding the select worked
14:27 -!- fabled [~fabled@] has joined #go-nuts
14:27 < skelterjohn|work> if going from GOMAXPROCS=1 to something higher
fixes your code, your code needs other fixing
14:27 < ArgonneIntern> so go assumes no one will ever use no blocking
infinte loops
14:27 < ArgonneIntern> ever
14:27 < skelterjohn|work> not at all
14:28 < skelterjohn|work> go assumes that those loops are oding something
that you want done
14:28 <+iant> an infinite loop which does nothing works poorly at the moment
14:28 <+iant> an infinite loop which actually does something should work

14:28 < skelterjohn|work> go has no way to know that the code in your for
loop is less important than the code at the end of nomnom()
14:28 < ArgonneIntern> well the code I'm testing this for does indeed have
an infinite loop that doesn't block, it does stuff, quite a bit, but it doesn't
14:28 < aiju> goroutines aren't nice
14:28 < skelterjohn|work> and i don't think having a special case for
turning "for {}" into "select{}" is a good idea
14:28 < ArgonneIntern> and I had this problem before
14:29 < ArgonneIntern> had to add gosched to it
14:29 < aiju> they hog all CPU until they block
14:29 < aiju> *sigh*
14:29 < aiju> select {}
14:29 <+iant> It is unfortunately possible to write such loops at present;
that is a bug
14:29 < aiju> for the fifth time
14:29 < ArgonneIntern> aiju, I did use select ont his little peice of code
14:29 < ArgonneIntern> on this*
14:29 < skelterjohn|work> ArgonneIntern: if this "problem before" was the
one i was in on, then i thought that the issue was made clear?
14:29 < aiju> then you fucked up something else
14:29 < aiju> i remember that you complained about this before
14:29 < skelterjohn|work> i don't remember the solution
14:29 < ArgonneIntern> I really wish you could ignore people on irc lol
14:30 < skelterjohn|work> you can
14:30 < skelterjohn|work> but you'll look silly
14:30 < aiju> you seem to be already doing this
14:30 < skelterjohn|work> since aiju is talking sense
14:30 < ArgonneIntern> look I already feel dumb for having this issue
before, I'm just trying to think how I can accomplish my goals and avoid it in the
future.  Select won't work for me on the code I'm trying to do this on
14:30 < skelterjohn|work> then it's a different issue :)
14:30 < aiju> i just took your example
14:31 < aiju> ran it with select{}
14:31 < aiju> and it worked
14:31 <+iant> call Gosched, then, as you mentioned
14:31 <+iant> or call GOMAXPROCS
14:31 <+iant> it's not ideal, but it works
14:31 < aiju> calling Gosched doesn't solve the problem that he is
14:31 < skelterjohn|work> right - if you have some code that does not
naturally block, is expensive, and you want to have it share time,
14:31 <+iant> he is saying that he has some other code which does something
14:31 < ArgonneIntern> ok
14:31 < skelterjohn|work> aiju: in his "real" code there is stuff in that
for loop
14:31 <+iant> or that is what I understand him to be saying

14:32 < ArgonneIntern> no iant goshed is how I solved it last time
14:32 < ArgonneIntern> I just didn't see it this time...again lol
14:33 <+iant> or just call GOMAXPROCS if you like; that is in effect what
the scheduler will do when this bug is fixed
14:33 < skelterjohn|work> goroutines/coroutines are a different concurrency
model than threads
14:33 < skelterjohn|work> have to think about it differently
14:33 < ArgonneIntern> in my particular case all my goroutines do all the
work, and my main routine just cleans up some data and other things, and this
cleanup doesn't block
14:33 < skelterjohn|work> wasn't the solution to do "<-time.After(1e9)"
or something?
14:33 < ArgonneIntern> iant, I want to do that, however I don't think I can
make assumptions about hardware this might be running on
14:34 <+iant> GOMAXPROCS is not an issue of hardware, it's an issue of OS
thread support
14:34 <+iant> Go will only work if the OS can run multiple threads
14:34 < skelterjohn|work> PROC is for "process", not "processor"
14:34 <+iant> calling GOMAXPROCS just tells the scheduler to use more

14:48 < ArgonneIntern> heh, well they don't use go, so I don't have to worry

14:49 < ArgonneIntern> but I still plan on using the language, I like it a
lot, even if I am bad at it currently

14:50 < skelterjohn|work> i was asleep the whole time

14:50 < nicka2> I had a useless prof for my os class :/
14:50 < skelterjohn|work> (darkened room, stadium seating, wintertime so i
had my super warm coat)
14:50 < ArgonneIntern> the only class I really enjoyed in school was
architecture.  I think most people hate it though
14:51 < aiju> i never studied IT/CS/software engineering/whatever and i'm
never going to
14:51 < aiju> and it feels good.
14:51 < skelterjohn|work> you know something about math, afaict, and that
covers the important bits
14:52 < aiju> i have actually written toy operating systems
14:53 < skelterjohn|work> so, you *have* studied CS, just not in the form of
a slide show
14:53 < aiju> haha
14:53 < aiju> i haven't studied it at an university or something, that's
what i meant to say
14:53 < aiju> i did lots of self-study
14:53 < ArgonneIntern> so I'm sorry for having this problem before aiju,
although you might be smart enough to use goroutines right the first time, I'm
not.  I don't think that makes me stupid, it just means I need to spend more time
than I have learning them.
14:53 < nicka2> somewhat related, in said class as a final project a few of
us made a (very) toy os while everyone else basically presented on os-related
14:53 < skelterjohn|work> i learned nothing about programming at school.  i
did learn some fun bits about CS theory though
14:54 < nicka2> we didn't do a slideshow and we got torn into for it
14:54 < aiju> ArgonneIntern: oh i don't think you're stupid
14:54 < nicka2> slideshows are very important
14:54 < skelterjohn|work> there is a difference between being stupid and
doing something stupid
14:54 < skelterjohn|work> i do stupid things all the time (ask my wife)
14:55 < aiju> 17:00 < kfx> I know why the gophers are so important
14:55 < aiju> 17:00 < kfx> they're the only part of Go that doesn't
completely change every six months
14:55 < aiju> hahahahahahhaa
14:55 < skelterjohn|work> over in #cat-v?
14:55 < ArgonneIntern> we made an os in that class, but it was very basic,
it had the bare bones you could possibly have for an os.  Although we did add
priority scheduling.
14:55 < skelterjohn|work> my os class project was a joke
14:57 < ArgonneIntern> school is highly Dependant on the professors.  I got
lucky at my school, we have more than a few good ones that don't mind failing the
entire class if they don't live up to expectations.

15:09 < skelterjohn|work> one, you don't distribute any source code with

would involve changing that, to some degree
15:10 < skelterjohn|work> two, go is not run on a virtual machine, and the
size of types matters
15:10 < skelterjohn|work> so code that can deal with multiple types without
being recompiled would have to have a nice way to abstract away the size of the
15:11 < skelterjohn|work> and not just for T (you can use interface{} for
that), but for []T, chan T, map[T]T, etc
15:11 < skelterjohn|work> so it's not a simple question with an obvious

15:17 < foocraft> yes, thank you skelterjohn|work.
15:17 < foocraft> So what's the idiomatic way for implementing functions
that are exactly the same, but take different types as their argument?
15:18 < skelterjohn|work> use interface{}, and if you want type safety, wrap
15:18 < skelterjohn|work> but remember, no one has said there will never be
15:18 < skelterjohn|work> at least, no one from the dev team
15:18 < skelterjohn|work> though it is clearly low priority
15:19 < foocraft> I'm not clear on what you meant by wrapping it.
15:19 < skelterjohn|work> if you have Foo(interface{})
15:19 < skelterjohn|work> write FooX(x X) { Foo(x) }

15:20 < foocraft> I take it, setters and getters are encouraged in go then
15:20 < skelterjohn|work> not really, no
15:21 < foocraft> then how can I be passing interfaces and expect to access
members of a struct?
15:21 < skelterjohn|work> let me side-track a little bit
15:22 < erus`> interfaces should 'do something'
15:22 < erus`> not just hold data
15:22 < skelterjohn|work> do you have something specific you want to create,
or are you just trying to figure out the most straightforward way to do something
in Go that you do in another language by using generics
15:22 < skelterjohn|work> erus`: interface{} is often used as a "any type"
15:22 < erus`> yeah an empty interface
15:23 < foocraft> skelterjohn|work: not at the moment, but I was kinda
bothered by a question asked by someone here, to which the answer was "copy paste
the function 3 times, for all 3 types"
15:23 < jessta_> foocraft: you have a function that takes different types
but sets/gets the same members within them?
15:23 < skelterjohn|work> i don't like copy/paste stuff, either
15:23 < foocraft> not me, it was a problem posted on here, jessta_
15:23 < foocraft> hehe I'm free from sin!
15:23 < skelterjohn|work> jessta_ is referring to your question about seters
and getters
15:24 < skelterjohn|work> setters
15:24 < foocraft> yes, jessta_
15:24 < skelterjohn|work> which was a tad off the wall, and is why i asked
my other question
15:25 < foocraft> the simple solution to this would be to let that function
take an interface that has the getters and setters, write that function once, and
have your three structs with their setters and getters lying there
15:26 < skelterjohn|work> foocraft: it's a solution to a wonky problem
15:26 < skelterjohn|work> generics are most useful for container types
15:26 < erus`> if you have getters and setters you are not abstracting
15:26 < ArgonneIntern> if I want to capture signals to gracefully exit a
program I just need to take stuff off of signal.Incoming channel and interpret
them correct?
15:26 < skelterjohn|work> ArgonneIntern: yes, or write your own version of
15:26 < foocraft> skelterjohn|work: I agree.  that looks like a pain, since
size matters there a lot
15:27 < jessta_> depedning on the requirements you could also make those
members a struct embeded in the types you want to use this function on, and passed
the embeded type in instead
15:28 < foocraft> jessta_: I like that :) it sounds a bit more organized
15:28 < skelterjohn|work> that's a slick idea
15:29 < jessta_> the other way is to have it be a function that takes
paramters and returns a result and pass in the memebers indivdually and assign
back the results

17:48 < Kahvi> Is it safe to write to one net.Conn from multiple goroutines?
17:48 < skelterjohn|work> i think probably not
17:49 < skelterjohn|work> you should probably have one goroutine reading the
messages to send from a channel
17:49 < skelterjohn|work> it's *possible* that individual write calls on the
connection are threadsafe, but i wouldn't bet on it
17:50 < skelterjohn|work> but certainly if each message has a few .Write()
calls, and multiple goroutines are doing that, then those .Write() calls can get
17:50 < Kahvi> The individual Write calls are what I meant
17:51 < skelterjohn|work> i don't think so, but i'm not sure.
17:51 < Kahvi> But I guess I'll create the goroutine that reads a channel of
byte slices
17:51 < skelterjohn|work> the net pkg docs don't say it's threadsafe, so
it's probably not

17:59 < kevlar_work> net is thread safe ish
17:59 < kevlar_work> using write() from multiple goroutines should be fine
(the same way printf from multiple goroutines is "fine")
18:00 < skelterjohn|work> i imagine that it just passes the data directly
onto a C call
18:00 < kevlar_work> skelterjohn|work, syscall actually.
18:00 < kevlar_work> hence the printf analogy.
18:00 < kevlar_work> both use file descriptor writes at a syscall level.
18:00 < skelterjohn|work> right, cool
18:00 < erus`> what about on winblows?
18:01 < kevlar_work> Things like closing the net.Conn are *not* thread safe
18:01 < kevlar_work> and keep in mind that not every net.Conn is actually a
TCPConn or a UDPConn, both of which should be safe ish

18:01 < kevlar_work> so, the moral here is that you should probably
restructure your program if you start asking yourself "Is this thread safe?"
18:02 < kevlar_work> also keep in mind that it may be safe now but it isn't
guaranteed to stay that way.
18:02 < skelterjohn|work> though at the same time, if you really want to
optimize it's nice to not have something that is doubly-thread-safe
18:02 < skelterjohn|work> more knowledge about behavior of your libraries is
always a good thing
18:03 < erus`> skelterjohn do you use go at work?
18:03 < kevlar_work> in go, the "thread safety" costs are somewhat different
than in other languages though
18:03 < Namegduf> kevlar_work: How does that gel with a .Close() concurrent
with a write being the only way to interrupt it?

18:04 < skelterjohn|work> and when i say "finishing up" i mean "starting"

duplicate and/or maintain if that underlying behavior ever gets relaxed)

18:05 -!- icey [u2593@gateway/web/irccloud.com/x-hwwmqbcceqpdzqgl] has joined
18:08 < kevlar_work> Namegduf, there's also the very not-thread-safe
"c.ok()" calls that litter net; calling close() concurrent with a read/write is
mostly idempotent with respect to that; having multiple potential closers
concurrent with potential writers/readers has the potential for one c.ok() to be
called before another call to Close() and then the following action to be executed
thinking the socket is open
18:08 < kevlar_work> so like I said, it's thread safe ish.
18:09 * skelterjohn|work looks up "idempotent"
18:09 < Namegduf> Specified, I dunno, but it's literally the only way to do
the job.
18:09 < Namegduf> And being able to time out a connection is fairly
important, general stuff.
18:09 < kevlar_work> skelterjohn|work, a() is the same as a(); a() if it's
18:10 < kevlar_work> close(chan) used to be idempotent, now it's not (it
panics now)

18:11 < kevlar_work> in the case above, I used it because the read/write
will fail both if it was closed by the close() or if it had an error, either way
the result is the same and the close() can happen wherever in the flow
18:12 < kevlar_work> (the "mostly" part was because it could successfully
read, in which case the error wouldn't happen until the next one, but that should
normally be fine because it's normally in a loop.)

20:13 < dsal> Thanks a lot, though, skelterjohn|work.
20:13 < skelterjohn|work> if the integer can fit in there, float64 can
represent it exactly
20:13 < aiju> 52 bits i think
20:14 < skelterjohn|work> 53, according to wiki
20:14 < aiju> 52 real bits
20:14 < aiju> one implied bit

20:14 < skelterjohn|work> ah, right
20:15 < dsal> My issue is that this data's "foreign" to me.  I can't
guarantee 52 bits is enough.  Although that's a reasonable assumption.
20:15 < skelterjohn|work> can you guarantee 64 bits is enough?
20:15 < dsal> I just need to keep reminding myself that I don't care much
about this data.  I'm just writing a program.
20:15 < dsal> No, I can't.  That's why something like bignum would be ideal.
20:16 < dsal> Or really, if I could just tell it to parse this as a string.
20:16 < skelterjohn|work> i don't think so

20:16 < dsal> If I care more later maybe I'll submit a patch.  I shouldn't
even be looking at this right now, though.  :)
20:18 < dsal> Well now I know what failing a type assertion looks like.
20:18 < skelterjohn|work> i imagine because keydata is sometimes a float64,
sometimes something else
20:18 < skelterjohn|work> a string, from your earlier irc msg
20:18 < dsal> Sometimes null
20:19 < skelterjohn|work> so, it's a good idea to use a type switch for this
kind of thing
20:19 < skelterjohn|work> or if all you really want to do is print it, use
%v instead of %s
20:19 < skelterjohn|work> then fmt will do the type switch for you
20:20 -!- alehorst [~alehorst@] has quit
[Quit: Leaving.]
20:20 < dsal> Ah. I didn't know of %v.  In this case, I just want a path for
nil and a path for number.  The type assertion will be fine since I wouldn't know
what to do if it weren't one of these.  Records either have a tid or they don't.

20:58 < kevlar_work> multiple type assertions require multiple comparisons,
a type switch can be optimized to a lookup and a jump table

23:11 < qeed> and if i do import "./lib/package_here" it says package not

23:13 < kevlar_work> qeed, you should have src/binary/main.go and
23:13 < kevlar_work> and both should have their own makefiles
23:13 < qeed> i see so no one makefile
23:13 < kevlar_work> one makefile per directory and one package OR one
binary per directory
23:14 < kevlar_work> that is len(Makefile) == 1 && (len(package) == 1 ||
len(binary) == 1)
23:15 < qeed> well i have one binary i guess you cant use c functions in a
binary have to make it a lib?
23:15 < qeed> *want one binary
23:15 < kevlar_work> c should work fine in a binary
23:15 < qeed> how does one do build that?
23:16 < str1ngs> think cgo only works with packages.
23:16 < kevlar_work> CGOFILES=blah.c blah2.c GOFILES=main.go
23:16 < kevlar_work> str1ngs, orly?
23:16 < kevlar_work> it didn't used to
23:16 < qeed> well i mean calling C functions in go
23:16 < kevlar_work> either that or gofr was able to do it and I only
assumed Make could do it as well.
23:16 < qeed> cant just build that into one binary?
23:17 < kevlar_work> qeed, I'm pretty certain you can
23:17 < kevlar_work> show us your makefile
23:17 < str1ngs> unless you put the C in only CGOFILES?
