I think this community is a remarkable bastion of what's left of this.

@rain
Indeed, that one is great 👍. It and Juergen Lorenz's tutorial on Chicken macros wiki.call-cc.org/explicit-rena were what I had gathered by looking on my own.

I'd like some recommendations for tutorials on #Scheme macros. #R5RS syntax-rules for sure, but beyond that, er- and ir-transformers, or #R6RS syntax-case, it's all up for grabs.

The motivation is to try to encourage colleagues to move beyond defmacro.

Okay though but what is some #solarpunk music??? Like i've been listening to some retrowave/futuristic/synthwave mixes on youtube and i've been wondering if there is something similar for solarpunk

[OH:wleslie] it was already really easy to avoid CSRF as a vulnerability, even before CORS was a thing: simply make authority-carrying resource names unguessable (make it a crypto-cap)

@mdhughes Here is my wish: the ability to move the cursor in the #shell command line by just clicking on the target character. Not for me, but for other begginers. Your wishes are also interesting. @codesections @alexbuzzbee

I've been mulling over research in programming for quite some time, and a talk like this is really up my alley.

TL;DW the best code is written by a team of unstressed people that sleep 8 hours a night, and do code reviews; chances are type to untypes languages, dynamic to static, etc. etc. etc. don't matter nearly as much as these (yes, even TDD)

Be honest with yourself about what you need.

@zig @cwebber @janneke @rain Would be super cool if Loko were made bootstrappable from www.gnu.org/software/mes/ .

(oh cool, mes has a GNU home page now!)

@thj

Not sure I agree with more permissive parsers in general (there are plenty of times where something isn't *technically* ambiguous but isn't what a human would have meant)

But, on the specific point about commas in argument lists, I agree 1000%. #Lisp, #scheme, #apl, #j, and many others get by fine without comas there

The argument-list comma is a legacy of C that I could do without!

Chez Scheme is bootstrappable from Racket, but yeah it does not have a story as good as guile

we use computers every day but we can't resize terminals without it fucking everything up yet

@clacke @cwebber @janneke @zig

the question is how can you build it from source?

if it is self hosting that means you can build it using an already compiled binary of itself. It can also be built by chez scheme, but then we need to ask how is chez scheme built?

Chez scheme is also self hosting, it depends on a boot binary to build.

So loko is a very awesome tool but it isn't bootstrappable from smaller components yet.
