<daviid>spk121: hello! any news on the 'guile on msys2-w64 front'?
<lispmacs>I was remembering that guile had some kind of void type, used for evaluating to no result, but I can't remember what it is
<lispmacs>there seems to be a "unspecified" object, but I don't know how to make one
<lispmacs>in scheme, anyway, there is SCM_UNSPECIFIED in C
<spk121>daviid: I'm running to ground an annoying guile-gi bug, that seems to be taking forever. It is still 2nd on my TODO.
<spk121>First, guile-gi 0.3.0 Then guile-mingw 2.2.6. Then guile-ncurses 3.0. Then finally back to either YVDebug or my broken website
<spk121>This last bug is my guile-gi release blocker.
<jcowan>lispmacs: (if #f #f) usually works
<lispmacs>jcowan: okay, thx
<roptat>hi, I'd like to have my guile program gpg-sign some strings. What should I use for that?
<janneke>daviid: i have uploaded my Guix cross build package here --
<roptat>I've found guile-gcrypt, but I need to at least manipulate a pem-encoded public key
<roptat>so I can either generate the key outside of my guile program, but then I need to load it in guile-gcrypt, or generate it with guile-gcrypt, which makes it easier to sign, but I don't know how to convert the public key to a pem format afterwards...
<amz3>roptat: otherwise look at scheme industria
<roptat>actually, I've found enough documentation on ASN.1 and PEM to be able to convert from guile-gcrypt objects
<roptat>thanks for the help :)
