<civodul>Hello Guilers!
<stis_>hmm, modding a gc is insanely difficult
<stis_>I'm only getting it to work inferiorly
<stis_>e.g. it has to do insanely many gc sweeps to clean the data
<dsmith-work>Morning Greetings, Guilers.
<madsy>hey dsmith-work
<wingo>i finally have a fix for the n^2 memory issue
<wingo>working on cleaning it up, will push shortly
<wingo>a relief; been sitting on that for weeks now
<civodul>yay, well done, wingo!
<davexunit>what was the n^2 memory issue?
<mgsk>wingo: what's going on with this year's guile emacs? The repo doesn't seem to have been updated since last yeear.
<daviid>hello guilers
<dsmith-work>Heya daviid
<daviid>dsmith-work: how are things and hacking?
<daviid>dsmith-work: of topic, someone here mentioned another sd card type computer, not the rasbery pi, not the beagle bone, but another that was indeed also coming with its container [not just the mother board], do you remember its name?
<daviid>guilers, anyone has cairo experience, as in used to draw using guile-gnome?
<dsmith-work>daviid: I know not
<dsmith-work>sneek: logs?
<sneek>I could be wrong, but logs is
<dsmith-work>daviid: Maybe search ^^^
<daviid>dsmith-work: did search already but there is no search facility oer say, have to parse day per day...
<dsmith-work>daviid: Other popular thing is arduino
<daviid>it is terrible actually, am i wrong?
<dsmith-work>Hmm. Must have been rotty who had the searchable logs then.
<daviid>out of curiousity, why did we wrote g-wrap instead of using swig?
<dsmith-work>No idea.
<dsmith-work>istr that they came out about the same time. Maybe g-wrap was first?
<dsmith-work>g-wrap uses s-exprs
<daviid>i like g-wrap better actually, (1) it's fully integrated in guile, and (2) it makes extensive use of goops
<daviid>till now i thought basic types where managed [by g-wrap] in such a way that we got pointers to them 'for free', there apparently still is something I am missing I guess. I have 'opaque type warnings' for functions [guile-gnome, guile-clutter] returning double*, guint8*, gunichar* [unsigned-int32*] and gunichar2* [unsigned-int16*, which surprises me: is this expected?
