    @drewc
    @amirouche Sounds like the wrong version(s) of Gambit and Gerbil being mixed, or something has changed in Gambit in the last few days. What versions of Gambit and Gerbil?
    vyzo
    @vyzo
    what version of gambit and gerbil is that?
    you need gerbil master for gambit master
    drewc @drewc wins the questioning race! Winner <---- :)

    macro-readtable-brace-keyword-set! is not in Gambit anymore, so the error makes sense IF they are the wrong versions, OR we've (you've) messed up the answer to life, the universe and everything: (>= (##vector-length (current-readtable)) 42)
    It's 09:09 AM, so time to smoke weed. You know how it is.

    Developing a web browser is fun! Having been a web developer for the last 21 years or so it's very neat to be on the other side, as it were. This is how the two communicate: https://webaim.org/blog/user-agent-string-history/

    warning: minor breaking change in #644 -- I am moving assert! to :std/assert as the new cool message formatting from alex knauth introduces a dependency on :std/format
    and we want :std/sugar to not have runtime deps

    waaaaa? it is a shared object we are bhilding
    Jaime Fournier
    @ober
    meh fedora. will just use docker to build
    Drew Crampsie
    @drewc
    I stopped using RedHat around '96 and I have to say that, though the last 25 years have not been scot free, and IIRC Fedora was the main dist for Qubes, still, quite glad to have met Deborah and Ian and their apt'ly named package manager. Only moved to Nix and then Guix this year.
    ober @ober never liked ibm linux much

    I had IBM AIX on a PS/2 back in the day. Does that count?
    Jaime Fournier
    @ober
    you mean IX?
    interactive executor
    Drew Crampsie
    @drewc
    what is IX? Never heard of it .... googl'ing
    Wow, IBM has an advertising agency that you can contract out to? International Business Madvertising? So confusing.
    Drew Crampsie
    @drewc
    Though, heh, I was contracting for Clozure Associates (in Boston) whose contract was with ITA (Boston/Cambridge) who had a contact with IBM Canada (Toronto) whose contract was with Air Canada (Montréal) but was taken care of by a subsidy (Vancouver). So, to have a meeting with IBM Vancouver I had to fly to Boston. IBM gets confusing. "International" heh.
    Oh, at that time, I lived in Vancouver itself. Almost right downtown.
    Drew Crampsie
    @drewc
    IBM lol. As a computer guy, I even worked for "them" in Scarborough (which is now Toronto) making Sun and Apple machines on an assembly line. No wonder they are now into advertising and promotion. I should likely buy their stock.
    Jaime Fournier
    @ober
    yeah all about stock prices
    AIX was "advanced interactive executive"
    my first job at IGS was setting up Monterey project apache servers for SCO to share files.
    then later, provide all the AIX design docs from the beginning to the lawsuit. and explain every broken symlink to aix 3.1 docs
    but yeah fedora...
    Jaime Fournier
    @ober
    works fine in docker
    Drew Crampsie
    @drewc
    Ah SCO. That, + Xenix, + OMFG there was a lot of unix back in the day. I have no idea why I prefer FreeBSD even though I've never actually run it in production for anything nor is it desktop-able... I ran MINIX on an XT ...
    Jaime Fournier
    @ober
    nsa was mostly minix on XTs with SCO odt used as server in latest 80s
    drewc @drewc is close be being done with off-topic chats ... hold on a sec ...

    @drewc

    I ran CP/M on a Terminal that was made to serial into an IBM 360 that was running some AIX. She had 8" "floppies" and a giant 64k RAM. I bought her at a garage sale from a local IBM executive in the early/mid 90's along with a crapload of other IBM's. What was that fscking PS/2 bus called so you had to use their boards? Didn't they even try to have a different operating system, like, say, #2? Is that why Gates chose 3.0 then 3.1 and finally 3.11 as the numbers before 95 which itself comes before 7?

    Can I Win with my Sock and Trumpet it up to make a Mosiac? NCSA What's New? Gopher? Archie? Veronica? I miss.certain.things and likely still remember my FidoNet details.

    cool, gitter thinks #n means something.

    The answer to L, TU, &A brings me back to work. Salut!!

    @amirouche
    Is there a builtin way to list the content of directory ? Is there a way to check a file exists? How can I execute a shell command, that is sometime called system procedure?
    How can I import a gambit libraries?
    vyzo
    @vyzo
    yes to all three, gambit builtins cover you here
    importing gambit libraries needs a bit of scaffolding currently, you need to define an .ssi with the exports
    but i would like to automate that
    amirouche
    @amirouche
    tx I will look at it
