<arjanb>hello Luc02:38
hi sent daniel the patch for what we spoke about yesterday.. only 3 lines changes02:42
<leblin>i think we should consider splitting up the nice.lang package.02:55
<arjanb>yes that's on the todo02:58
bonniot: awake?
<arjanb>good night03:54

what do you think of darcs? http://abridgegame.org/darcs/
<bonniot>I'm aware CVS in not perfect. the problem is to find a replacement that's widely supported13:37
<arjanb>reasoning like that then CVS will never go away13:41
<bonniot>it will ;-)13:42
it's also easier to start with something new for new projects13:43
we could switch when sourceforge supports something (probably subversion)
<arjanb>i think switching to subversion is not worth the effort13:45
<bonniot>renaming files and dirs, atomic commits, that's quite good13:48
and you can set up decentralized repositories using svk
<arjanb>i don't have problems with using CVS for Nice but i tried darcs a little and it works very intuitive13:51
<arjanb>it could be used without sourceforge i think13:53
<bonniot>does it need a central server?
<arjanb>no through html readable repositry is enough13:55
i don't feel the need to switch for Nice but i only want to advice to try it out13:58
any news about the constructor messages?
<arjanb>no but i will look at it when i have fixed a bug in converted code14:14

<bonniot>hi cm14:31
<cm_>Do you know of any free and small tuple space library in Java?14:35
<bonniot>tuple *space* ?14:38
<cm_>eg Linda and JavaSpaces14:40
JavaSpaces is huge and complicated
<bonniot>haven't heard about them14:42
<cm_>A tuple space is like a market place for typed tuples. Good for impl. loosly coupled distributed systems - elegant and simple.14:44
<bonniot>so it's a poor man's tuple system?14:45
<cm_>It is distributed and all operations in the tuple are atomic. 14:48
<bonniot>ah ok
<cm_>Crazy simple but very powerful
I have a little research idea of an ad hoc storage and computation grid.14:51
<bonniot>do you have the opportunity to use Nice?14:56
<cm_>I hope so :-)15:08
<CIA-3>03bonniot * 10Nice/testsuite/compiler/classes/visibility.testsuite: Testcase for bug #1060712.15:25
<arjanb>it has taken too much time but conversion of NiceClass is done15:42
i found a dozen issues while doing that15:44
<bonniot>are you keeping track?15:45
<bonniot>ok :-)15:48
<CIA-3>03arjanb * 10Nice/src/bossa/ (17 files in 2 dirs): Converted NiceClass, DefaultConstructor and Nice field classes to nice code.15:58
03arjanb * 10Nice/stdlib/nice/lang/prelude.nice: Nake clone() not accept maybe null arguments.16:22
<arjanb>typo :/
<CIA-3>03arjanb * 10Nice/src/bossa/syntax/MethodBodyDefinition.java: Save error messages instead of errors in ErrorList.16:43
<arjanb>otherwise debug.alwaysDumpStack floods the console
<bonniot>i see. i suppose it's ok16:44
<arjanb>used LocatedString so location isn't lost16:47
currently the default retyping for arrays is ?type[] and i think that inconvenient19:32
arrays of non null element seem more common19:41
daniel: do you agree with changing that?21:11
