[11:19] [Cale] update x n xs = take n xs ++ x : drop (n+1) xs
[12:03] metaperl is there some syntax/function for taking a list of transformers and the initial value so that mothersPaternalGrandfather s = (Just s) `comb` mother `comb` father `comb` father can be wrtten as (Just s) [mother, father, father]
[12:04] integral metaperl: foldl ?
[12:04] metaperl hi integral
[12:04] *** swiert quit ( )
[12:04] integral hi metaperl
[12:04] metaperl by golly, I think you are right integral
[12:08] metaperl there's no way to short-circuit a chain of monadic computations? what if you want all further function calls to abort if you get a Nothing value?
[12:09] Darius metaperl: With the Maybe monad, that's what happens.
[12:09] metaperl oh
[12:09] Philippa_ and you can always sling a MaybeT on top
[12:09] integral and you've got laziness too remember
[shapr] compositional thinking, which is the ultimate goal in software engineering.
[19:27] [autrijus] is there a way to get argv in ghc?
[19:27] [autrijus] other than using inline C :)
[19:32] *** SamB quit (Read error: 110 (Connection timed out))
[19:32] [autrijus] ok. including using inline C.
[19:32] [dons] getProgName ?
[19:32] * autrijus does not seem to see a way
[19:32] [autrijus] no, that strips off leading dirnames.
[19:33] [autrijus] so, not terribly useful.
[19:33] [dons] write your own getProgName
[19:33] [dons] getProgName :: IO String
[19:33] [dons] getProgName =
[19:33] [dons] alloca $ \ p_argc ->
[19:33] [dons] alloca $ \ p_argv -> do
[19:33] [dons] getProgArgv p_argc p_argv
[19:33] [dons] argv <- peek p_argv
[19:33] [dons] unpackProgName argv
[19:33] [dons] wheree you define a better unpackProgName
[19:33] [autrijus] getProgArgv?
[19:33] [dons] getProgName currently runs a local basename :: String -> Strin\
[19:34] [autrijus] getProgArgv is not shown in docs...
[19:34] [autrijus] IOBase?
[19:35] [dons] System.Environment
[19:35] [autrijus] foreign import ccall unsafe "getProgArgv"
[19:35] [autrijus] getProgArgv :: Ptr CInt -> Ptr (Ptr CString) -> IO ()
[19:35] [autrijus] only not re-exported.
[19:35] [autrijus] so I'll need to replicate here
[19:35] [dons] ah.
[19:35] [autrijus] ok, that works. thanks!
[19:35] [autrijus] dons++
[19:36] [dons] :)
