***daviwil_ is now known as daviwil
<lampilelo>sneek: (+ 1 2)
<lampilelo>now where's the scheme interpreter?
<robin><vivien> Is there any chance to get fibers merged into guile at some point? [vivien says they're unable to post here for some reason]
<lloda>you need to be registered to post here, you don't get any error, thing just eats up what you write :-\
<robin>lloda, ah, that would probably explain it, although i'm surprised #guix doesn't have a similar restriction
<robin>vivien, <lloda> you need to be registered to post here, you don't get any error, thing just eats up what you write :-\
***rlb` is now known as rlb
<lilyp>Guix advertises their room on the help page, so they get a lot of PotentialUsers :)
<ArneBab>robin: I would love to see fibers in Guile — I think wingo didn’t merge it yet, because he was unsure whether it is the right design.
***sneek_ is now known as sneek
<dsmith-work>Hey Hi Howdy, Guilers
<dsmith-work>robin: Something that has come up several times here, is the differnce between elisp the language, and emacs the application. Specifically, all the buffers stuff. Do you have a plan on where that line is drawn?
<dsmith-work>robin: Or did you?
<sneek>I've been running for one day and 15 hours
<sneek>This system has been up 12 weeks, 1 hour, 53 minutes
<lilyp>obviously stuff like buffer-local variables is hard to implement without the concept of buffers
<lilyp>but I'd argue that stuff like "places" (or generalized variables) are a feature of emacs that we might want to replicate
***daviwil_ is now known as daviwil
<robin>dsmith-work, not a concrete plan really. initially, guile-elisp would probably support functionality from roughly the first half of the elisp manual (chapters up to "minibuffers", "command loop", etc.) plus some obvious later chapters like threads and processes
<robin>dsmith-work, buffers would certainly be useful, either a guile emulation or borrowed directly from emacs (if that's feasible); maybe also stubs for things like frames
