<vanila>is there short gnome-guile example code?
<vanila> found some
<stis__>vanila: I think that we could just hang here when it comes to guile logic programming community
<vanila>yeah that would be good
<stis__>And guile-user mailing list can be used as well probably untill someone grumble
<amz3>my unit tests are passing!
<amz3>ACTION happy
<davexunit>had an internet conversation today where someone dismissed using lisp because implementations for the most don't have hash table literal syntax.
<davexunit>seems like a real minor thing to be a dealbreaker.
<profan>well, coming from languages where the built in syntax is a bigger deal, i can see why
<profan>it can get real noisy for little benefit when working with hashtables in many lisp implementations
<davexunit>hash tables are often unnecessary
<davexunit>in the cases that you'd want a literal map, an alist makes more sense.
<profan>thats literally just a list though, you're sort of losing half the point of using a hashmap when you dont get the fast lookups
<profan>unless its so few elements its neglible, but dont dismiss it as something unnecessary, now thats definitely silly :p
<davexunit>hash tables are also imperative structures
<davexunit>whereas alists are persistent
<davexunit>for functional programs with small maps, alists win.
<profan>but if you do end up using them though (for say, larger maps), it does sometimes get a bit awkward
<davexunit>yes, and this is where something like hash array mapped tries become appealing.
<paroneayea>heya davexunit
<paroneayea>I did a little bit more haunt hacking today
<davexunit>paroneayea: oh really? cool
<davexunit>I need to find some time to get a 0.2 release out
<davexunit>feedback/patches welcome. lots of rough edges, I know.
<paroneayea>davexunit: cool, I have one patch
<paroneayea>davexunit: basically, the theme configuration takes keyword arguments
<paroneayea>but if you don't supply them
<paroneayea>it fails because they default to #f!
<paroneayea>so I gave them the defaults of the ugly theme
<davexunit>bah! good catch

<daviid>hello guilers!
<daviid>wingo: I'd like to answer this message:
<daviid>wingo: I did dig a bit and found out that before 2004, guile-gnome did suport --with-guile-dir, precisly withdrawn in 2004. So I'm inclined to answer that we do not want [or some more apporpirate wording?] to support this for g-wrap... WDYT?
<lockdown>Does guile has plans to implement r7rs ?
