4:00 AM
√∫λⁿdλ = ?
@HelkaHomba I finally figured it out.
@HelkaHomba Isn't it like sqrt(λ^(n+1) / n)?
GitHub changed the way they display tabs: now they're 4-space width equivalent, whereas they used to be 8. :( I prefer 8 so I know when I'm looking at garbage.
+ c in there
eh whatevs
@AlexA. NOOOOOOO WHYYYYY
4:07 AM
@AlexA. ಠ_ಠ
Tabs make software bad
s/bad/beautiful/
Edit rejected
I'll just eleven it in. :P
we need a new type of whitespace that's a mix of tabs and spaces
Four newline indentation lol
4:11 AM
@AlexA. Also /(n+1)
@QPaysTaxes Ew, basic regular expressions are worse than spaces.
@Sp3000 Ah right. It's been too long. u_u
@Quill newlines? Everyone knows carriage returns are where it's at.
Nice try, Astley.
4:12 AM
@Quill CRLF/LF FLAME WAR
@DrGreenEggsandHamDJ Is that HERB with a silent H?
@Dennis History of Epic Rap Battles, clearly
Hey @Mods, whatever happened with the site renaming proposal? Was that or ?
Status we graduated we shouldn't change our name afterward

@Dennis Rolled back then locked for content dispute
@AlexA. That's a long tag
4:15 AM
I've seen longer
Apparently
@Dennis Side note: can you think of any other challenges other than CRC32 which required a 5-10 digit integer constant in CJam?
I'm having fun with the hard problem of golfing CJam constants
Not right now, no.
I wrote docs on Cheddar's functions:
> functions are liek avocad. they are great but you tri fo thritee minut an they dont work
@Downgoat Sounds cheesy.
4:19 AM
@AlexA. That clickbait
@Dennis No worries, thanks
@AlexA. that's obviously most probably not possible so I'm assuming rickroll
@AlexA. Apparently they did a IFTTT style thing as well
IFTTT == If Firefox Told Theresa Things?
@Downgoat ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ It's a link to GitHub so idk what to say
@Sp3000 I should have prefaced it with "breaking news."
@AlexA. Breaking News: Forget everything you know about X... and learn Y in ten easy steps! You won't believe number 6!
4:21 AM
@AlexA. so is this: gifsharer.github.io
@AlexA. please update julia showcase your language ._.
!UPDATE!: is now an officially recognized character in pretzel's codepage.
@CᴏɴᴏʀO'Bʀɪᴇɴ I will eventually

Too tired to argue but maybe others can give input on codegolf.stackexchange.com/questions/79200/rainbowlify-an-image/…
this minimizing 1's challenge is turning out surprisingly hard to solve directly
i.e. to come up with a direct expression without searching
4:24 AM
I've always wondered why there's a noredirect query parameter on a comment link
I want my barn to be here
@xnor Oh? Any particularly interesting cases?
@xnor Yeah, I was thinking that earlier. I haven't thought of a good way to do it yet.
I just realized. Helka's challenge is pyrovision
@HelkaHomba
kk g2g bai
@HelkaHomba are you going to allow RGB arrays? I want to know if I should make my JS solution use canvas or be able to take an RGB array
4:28 AM
@HelkaHomba how is @DrGreenEggsandHamDJ answer ok?
it literally requires some Image object as input
why is that Image object OK, but a simple array of pixel values isn't?
Also, @HelkaHomba can I take a URL for input?
>Write a program or function that takes in two non-negative integers and an image in any common image file format
I'd argue that a pixel array is a pretty common image file format on this site
If that isn't acceptable, I can make it take a string and load it instead.
@DrGreenEggsandHamDJ yes, you don't take an image file format, you take a PIL image object
4:30 AM
(Also, s/>/> /)
@DrGreenEggsandHamDJ that's what should be done, yes
@Downgoat I suppose. it's essentially a file path
now bai for real
@Downgoat I'm trying to enforce "common image file format" but I'm not sure it's working...
Personally I thought "common image file format" was pretty unambiguous
perhaps just specify "png", "jpg", "tiff", or "gif",
4:33 AM
Yeah. I mean bmp or jpg or png or w/e (just like many other image challenges where this problem has not come up)
I don't see why an RGB array would be acceptable under that terminology.
@CᴏɴᴏʀO'Bʀɪᴇɴ ಥ_ಥ
I don't see why is exempt from imposing useless I/O requirements that do not pertain to the challenge
that's a reason that many other challenges are often downvoted
It might be worth a meta discussion as to what constitutes an image. It sounds incredibly pedantic but it would provide guidance in this situation.
Okay, I'll edit that in.
That's some trippy shit right there.
4:37 AM
also, could people use thumbnails for that question?
^ Please
@orlp you should probably leave a comment on the posts. I doubt everyone who posted will see your chat message
@orlp to be fair, a plain array does not specify the image dimensions, which are important for displaying it
@HelkaHomba correct, my proposal is to allow a pixel array with dimensions, or a pixel matrix as an input format
it just happens that the dimensions are not necessary for your challenge
although I'd be willing to add two more (unused) parameters to my function for the width/height
What character makes sense for a no-op?
4:40 AM
@AlexA. I will generalize this and post to meta
@Cyoce the space?
underscore
@Cyoce ø
Yeah, space or semicolon
@HelkaHomba no that's the empty set
IMO
My preferred no-op operator: NOOP
4:41 AM
@HelkaHomba I like that. I already use ø, but I can use Ø

Is there a language that SE syntax highlighting supports which uses ; as comment?
(I'm dead inside)Oo.. (╯°ᴗ°)╯︵ ┻━┻
●‗●
@Cyoce Scheme
/lisp
4:44 AM
Ok then I'm using ; as nop. sorry @HelkaHomba
¤ᴖ¤
What can I say? I like pretty colors.
( ͡★ ͜ʖ ͡★)
What should do? ( is map, can't figure out how to relate that to , but I can't have unmatched arrows in my codepage)
@Sp3000 for the number 6105000, at first it looks like it's optimal to do [0, 0, 5, 4, -1, -5, -4, 1] (coefficients of 1, 11, ...), but [0, 0, -5, -5, 0, 5, 5, 0] has smaller cost (100 rather than 102)
4:51 AM
Does anyone know what this means:
[ { [Error: EACCES: permission denied, mkdir '/usr/local/lib/cpml']
how can an array be in an object??
Language?
@Cyoce javascript/node.js
@xnor Hmmm
@Cyoce asm
^^
4:52 AM
@Downgoat Node uses brackets to show certain types of objects. For example entering in (function(){}) will print back out [Function] in the REPL. Is that it?
@AlexA. ▼☉ᴥ☉▼
@Cyoce any programming language that does this is pretty much good
@CᴏɴᴏʀO'Bʀɪᴇɴ / and \ are reduce
filter?
@Cyoce hm... but do you have any idea how I would access the message in the above?
@Cyoce maybe split/spread?
4:54 AM
@Downgoat Spread?
@HelkaHomba Aw it looks like a pup
@Cyoce how about filter (like helka said) or perhaps reduce, keeping results?
e.g. +/\ 1 2 3 = 1 3 6
so +←1 2 3 = 1 3 6
@Sp3000 i think I can show that you should never have any coeffs with abs of 6 or higher except in the 1's digit place (where it's 7 or higher), and that no 5 should ever precede a negative and no -5 should precede a positive
@Quill are you there?
Yeah, wassup
4:56 AM
5 mins ago, by Downgoat
[ { [Error: EACCES: permission denied, mkdir '/usr/local/lib/cpml']
@Quill do you know what that means?
what is { [Error:
Try running it in sudo; you can't make a folder. Error handlers are built to return multiple errors, the braces are just in a few levels of error handling
@CᴏɴᴏʀO'Bʀɪᴇɴ Yeah, I like that. BTW "reduce keeping results" would be called "scan"
@Cyoce better yet reverse
@Cyoce TIL. I need to learn haskell
@Quill I am not trying to fix the error. I am trying to figure out what [Error: means
how is an array directly in an object without the key?
How can I access the error message?
4:57 AM
BTW wtf is hoogle
@CᴏɴᴏʀO'Bʀɪᴇɴ google for haskell
@Downgoat It's probably being assigned the 0 key like an array, that's weird though
@CᴏɴᴏʀO'Bʀɪᴇɴ you really should it's quite fun.
Error handlers are built to return multiple errors, the braces are just in a few levels of error handling
@Downgoat oic
@Cyoce So your golfing lang is akin to jelly?
4:58 AM
@CᴏɴᴏʀO'Bʀɪᴇɴ ???
is it tacit
implicit input
stuff like that
hooks chains dyads
God no.
2
so it's just infix?
Trying to understand Jelly makes my brain explode.
Does it make it turn to jelly?
