<paroneayea>mark_weaver: I replied to you on the emacs devel list
<paroneayea>right now, in fact ;)
<paroneayea>I think the generic property list solution sounds exciting
*davexunit needs to get on that list
<paroneayea>not yet propagated to mailman, so
<paroneayea>object properties are a crazy feature
<paroneayea>in a good way... I think!
<paroneayea>most probably! :)
<paroneayea>one of those many things I missed in the manual :)
<davexunit>yeah I've never really used them.
<davexunit>because I worry about abusing them instead.
<davexunit>but procedure documentation is an object property, I think.
<davexunit>so there's great uses for it.
<paroneayea>abuse all the features!
<davexunit>interesting email
<davexunit>need to follow it further
<davexunit>now that the flame-war appears to have stopped?
<paroneayea>the ill-informed haters left the list, not sure if flaming gone, but at least civil
<paroneayea>the unicode conversation looks like it is productive, if exhausting?
<ahills>does emacs have flame cycles on its mailer?
<paroneayea>emacs is not unknown to flamewars, let's put it that way
<paroneayea>also, I finally left #emacs
<paroneayea>I have over half a gig of #emacs logs, and I haven't really read it in the last 7 years
<davexunit>I also never look at #emacs
<davexunit>despite autojoining every time
<ahills>do you use the editor, or is there some correlation between guile and elisp?
<davexunit>I use the editor.
<davexunit>and I use the 'geiser' extension to interface with guile
<ahills>I thought about using guile to put scheme in vim, and then I tried to read the vim source code and gave up
<cluck>ahills: bipt thought about using guile to put scheme in emacs, and then he did
*cluck ducks
<zacts>ahills: have you tried neovim?
<zacts>also emacs provides evil-mode
<zacts>but I agree vim internals are scary
<ahills>I tried emacs evil mode and wanted to love it so much
<ahills>but it was impossible for me to do anything
<ahills>cluck: does emacs use guile now? I thought elisp was its own thing
<nalaginrut>morning guilers~
<mark_weaver>nalaginrut: I want to add you to the "fixes" section of our THANKS file. what name should I use?
<mark_weaver>ahills: There's a project to replace Emacs's own elisp interpreter with Guile. See
<mark_weaver>the plan is to eventually make this the official emacs, when it's matured. it's still controversial in the emacs community, but RMS wants it.
<ahills>is the VM new in guile 2.0?
<nalaginrut>mark_weaver: thanks, should it necessary to be realname?
<mark_weaver>it doesn't have to be your real name; it's your decision.
<nalaginrut>Nala Ginrut would be fine, I think ;-)
<nalaginrut>mark_weaver: btw, is there any way to tweak the port column in REPL when readline enabled?
<nalaginrut>I encountered a bug when colorize the prompt in REPL
<nalaginrut>the colorized prompt string is 80 length, so there's large blank when I tried to C-p to get previous input
<mark_weaver>nalaginrut: I know almost nothing about the guile-readline module (never use it myself), but 'set-port-column!' can be used to set the port's idea of what column it's in.
<mark_weaver>I don't know if that will help your problem or not.
<nalaginrut>I don't have any clue for this bug too, so I have to try any possible thing ;-)
<adhoc>interesting challenge indeed.
<nalaginrut>mark_weaver: big pressure now? ;-P
<nalaginrut>(maybe 'big' is insufficient)
<civodul>Hello Guilers!
