ah ! ok :)
host-exec is usable only in eval
Good thing eval works :)

@feeley
or in the REPL, which hides eval… ideally the two forms should be unified

How good is the JS backend, and could I reasonably have my DApp runtime run on top of it?
How much work would be required to bring the backend up to shape?
François-René Rideau
@fare
Another parameter question: it looks like (define foo (make-parameter #f)) creates a global binding that is side-effected rather than thread-locally shadowed by a (foo 'bar) unless I first use (parameterize ((foo #f)) ...) in the thread. Is that expected behavior?
François-René Rideau
@fare
This interesting makes parameters more like special variables in SBCL, and less like parameters in Racket.
François-René Rideau
@fare
the most "interesting" to me is to spawn a thread within a parameterize, then the threads inherit the cell, not the value, and can concurrently edit that shared cell.
François-René Rideau
@fare
is there a way to access the list of currently bound parameters? The equivalent of CL's PROGV ?
François-René Rideau
@fare
... the answer is a list of parameter-binding procedures.
François-René Rideau
@fare
and call parameterize on each one in a loop around the internal thunk.

@amirouche
@fare JS backend is definitely usable!
I was planning to do a clone of slack, but the target application is little bit different than "corporate chat", so I am experimenting with a conversation that ressembles a tree.
François-René Rideau
@fare
@amirouche nice!
I'll need some chat capability in my app manager... after all, players have to be able to find each other.

@eraserhd
I just discovered that (equal? (make-table) (make-table test: equal?)) ;=> #f, and it's probably because (equal? equal? ##equal?) ;=> #f. This is non-obvious from the docs, is it bad?
amirouche
@amirouche
re javascript backend: that said I stumbled upon an error that says something along the lines of r1 register undefined... Next time I will try to pin point a simple way to reproduce, I mostly debug with print but before convert argument to string with write
The error I mentioned above is a javascript error, 99 time out of 100 the error raise a popup with a REPL with where the error is.
Marc Feeley
@feeley
@eraserhd nice catch! yes definitely what I consider to be a bug… will come up with a fix...
François-René Rideau
@fare
what is the Right Way™ to cond-expand on the presence of symbols in openssl?
use #ifdef in C, and export dummies if not present?
François-René Rideau
@fare
I ended up doing a #if in C that returns NULL when the thingie is undefined, so you get a #f at runtime on the Scheme side.
François-René Rideau
@fare
Has anyone here experience with SchemeSpheres and/or LambdaNative ? Which should I use if I wanted to write applications targetting iOS, Android, JS, etc.?
François-René Rideau
@fare
is there a way to tell the FFI that an EVP_PKEY* is a special case of EVP_MD* or must I somehow cheat via void* ?
François-René Rideau
@fare
^ I assume that's what the tags in (pointer ...) are for, though I'm a bit surprised by the "T’s primary tag is a member of E’s tags" criterion.

I'm getting a failed unit test from make check when trying to build the Gambit master branch with the options:

./configure --prefix=/usr/local/gambit 
                       --enable-single-host
                       --enable-multiple-versions
                       --enable-shared
                       --enable-smp 
                       --enable-gcc-opts
                       --enable-openssl
                       --enable-absolute-shared-libs
                       --enable-poll
                       --enable-bignum

The relevant make check output is:

This is my first time building Gambit with this many options. Any insights to share on why this might be happening?

Bob Coleman
@skilldown

@junkerjoe Those tests rely on the optional module system. From a fresh clone build with a normal make and build the module system with make modules before running the make check. This fixed the issue for me.

Make sure to use a fresh clone to avoid issues with build artifacts.

Jaime Fournier
@ober
@junkerjoe you should not need the --enable-gcc-opts any longer
junkerjoe
@junkerjoe
@skilldown I thought --enable-smp required make bootstrap; make bootclean; make before make modules; make check. I can try it without.
@ober Noted. I'll get rid of this option
junkerjoe
@junkerjoe
Decided to revert back to non-SMP, but I made a ticket on the issue I was having to get clarity on whether it was expected behavior: gambit/gambit#502
junkerjoe
@junkerjoe
Linked the wrong ticket woops. Correction: gambit/gambit#640

How do I get rid of point-copy? I want to define my own with that name.

If it's not easy to get rid of point-copy I'll just rename my function.

@junkerjoe
Should I expect an executable to be killed off, after exceeding a certain memory limit, when providing the -:max-heap runtime option to gsc?
junkerjoe
@junkerjoe
I'd love to see an example program compiled with the -:max-heap setting and heap overflow. I think I just don't understand how it works.
Bradley Lucier
@gambiteer

-:max-heap is a runtime setting, so if c.scm is

[Bradleys-Mac-mini:~] lucier% cat c.scm
(do ((r '() (cons (make-vector 1000000) r)))
    (#f))

then you get

gsi -:max-heap=1000 c.scm
*** ERROR IN ##make-vector -- Heap overflow
junkerjoe
@junkerjoe
does that mean -:max-heap cannot be used with gsc?
Bradley Lucier
@gambiteer
If you use it with gsc then that means that you're restricting the heap size of gsc when it runs. Perhaps you want to do
[Bradleys-Mac-mini:~] lucier% gsc -exe c.scm
[Bradleys-Mac-mini:~] lucier% ./c -:max-heap=1000
*** ERROR IN ##make-vector -- Heap overflow
junkerjoe
@junkerjoe
i think that's just what i needed
thank you!
from gsc -:help i would've thought the option would need to be provided with the compilation command
anyways that's great, and really simple too

To build a gambit program with emscripten, how do I get an emscripten version of libgambit.a?
Marc Feeley
@feeley
@junkerjoe you can also use the following trick... if your source program contains a shebang line gsc will read the runtime options on the shebang line and embed them in the executable. This is convenient if you program starts off as an interpreted script that is compiled when ready for production. For example :
% cat limited.scm
#! /usr/bin/env gsi -:max-heap=100M
(##gc-report-set! #t)
(##gc)
(define (go)
  (let loop ((size 1000000) (last #f))
    (println size)
    (loop (* size 2) (make-vector size))))
(with-exception-catcher pp go)
% chmod +x limited.scm

@rileylevy95_gitlab Please check the file misc/build-gambit-emscripten.tgz... it is quite likely that it has suffered from bitrot, but it shouldn't be too hard to get it working again. This biggest problem is probably the evolution of emscripten, so doing a checkout of an old version of emscripten may be needed if you just want to quickly experiment with this.
