what would def myfunc(a = b.prop, b = a.prop) throw when I call myfunc()?
which variable isn't fully defined?
or would you list both?
 
@xnor Sorry that I and/or my avatar confused you on that "hook length product" answer
Hello everyone
 
hi
@El'endiaStarman what about myfunc(a = static_func())? Do you evaluate the function every time the parameter isn't passed in?
 
Someone give me a topic to do a challenge on
 
Sandwiches
 
@NathanMerrill The error message would have whichever one is needed first.
 
3:10 AM
@El'endiaStarman oh, so a would be lazy evaluated?
 
@NathanMerrill I suppose that's accurate enough.
 
TIL duckduckgo has a feature to shuffle lists
O.O
it also does random
 
@El'endiaStarman and how would the function example work?
 
@HelkaHomba Have we done a challenge on the burnt pancake sorting problem?
 
@NathanMerrill I don't know yet.
 
3:19 AM
@Sherlock9 not sure
Does anyone remember if I made a challenge about a program editing it's own source code? I'm sure I did...
Like "Write a program that outputs the number of times it has been run" because each run slightly modifies the source code
 
CMC: write the shortest program that produces the phrase "Do X without Y" without any of the characters in "Do X without Y"
@HelkaHomba it sounds familiar
 
@HelkaHomba I remember a challenge of "you can only run this once"
 
@NathanMerrill How did that work? (link?)
 
@ConorO'Brien Jelly, 11 bytes: “øWṇ÷ÆẹẉḟẠ»
 
ah, yes, string compression
 
3:27 AM
The straightforward compression had a u, but the second try worked.
 
Let this Jelly answer be an example for future "Do X without Y"-challenge makers

Q: Code that will only execute once

ojblassGoal The goal of this challenge is to write code that will execute once and only once. This means basically that it damages the program, script, or environment in some way. If rebooting the system allows the code to run again that is permitted. Scoring Number of votes. All assumptions must ...

 
:p nice answer, string compression is cool
 
it's not necessarily a good challenge by our standards, but it's the one I was talking about :)
 
Ah right. Thanks
 
3:30 AM
Alternatively, GolfScript, 20 bytes: golfscript.tryitonline.net/… (most unmentionable characters)
 
Oh dear. Dennis is airing out his unmentionables
 
@LeakyNun SILOS now has powerful graphical output methods :)
 
there was this dude called Ray who used racial slurs all the time. when he finally died, they buried him in what is now called "Ray's Cist" </badjoke>
 
Mini-challenge: Summarize the plot of a favorite movie/book in 29 bytes or less.
The let other people guess the title
 
@HelkaHomba pplANGRYpplFINEdefendantGLTY?
oh wait 29

there we go
 
3:39 AM
ClowningVigilantics
 
> Boy & tiger, big imagination.
 
Calvin and Hobbes

That's not a guess, that's my summary of another movie
 
3:39 AM

@Sherlock9 Batman?
 
Right, but which one?
 
The Dark Night?
 
Yep. How about "74aliens"
 
@ConorO'Brien Minkolang, 26 bytes: "Hs$\${mxlsyx$]"I[4-1R]$O.
 
Or "urwiz"
 
3:41 AM
> superfamilyVSdad's#1fan&robot
 
@ConorO'Brien Not sure. 12 angry men?
 
@HelkaHomba nailed it.
 
@Sherlock9 Harry Potter?
> Yer a wizard, Harry!
 
Yep :D
 
@Sherlock9 lol!
@DLosc Incredibles
 
3:42 AM
@HelkaHomba Yep!
 
"MarshmallowDoesNYC"
 
 
And has no one guessed my "74aliens" yet?
 
@DLosc That...actually looks pretty interesting.
Looks like she has armor.
 
3:43 AM
@Sherlock9 Ghostbusters?
 
Yes!
 
13*3|3+5+7+11+13&!statements;
if someone gets this, I'll be proud
 
@ConorO'Brien Wild guess: Primer? :P
 
@El'endiaStarman The style was this page from Gunnerkrigg Court.
 
@El'endiaStarman never heard of it
so nupe
 
3:45 AM
"JournalistInvestigLastWords"
 
@Sherlock9 Citizen Kane
 
Too easy haha
 
@HelkaHomba hermit tells boy "kill dad"
 
@DLosc Woah, I don't remember that page...
To be fair, I probably won't remember most of the pages of that comic. :P
@DJMcMayhem Star Wars.
 
There are several xkcd pages that you guys have posted in this chat that I have no memory of reading before haha
 
3:46 AM
Specifically, episode 4.
@Sherlock9 That happens to me too.
 
> JewishLadyBlackDriverFriends
 
> Dog not eaten but plays well.
 
Well, technically, Luke didn't find out that (SPOILERS!) Vader was his father until episode 5, I think? Or episode 6.
 
@El'endiaStarman dammit too easy
 
@DLosc Driving Miss Daisy, if I remember the name correctly
 
3:48 AM
@El'endiaStarman yeah, I meant 5
 
@Sherlock9 Correct!
 
"1NiceRoyalDaughter2Ungrateful" (technically a play but it's been made into movies)
 
@ConorO'Brien Airbud, Beethoven, or one of those other crazy dog movies
 
@Sherlock9 good enough
 
@HelkaHomba King Lear!
 
3:48 AM
Yes!
 
@RohanJhunjhunwala ??
 
Well, I was gonna guess Cinderella, but I've been saved from that embarrassment... :P
And that was a different story anyway.
 
That kinda works too
 
@El'endiaStarman Royal
 
@LeakyNun I added a graphical output functionality, documentation forthcoming, but it should be interesting, sorry I didn;t get to the challenge :(
 
3:49 AM
@DLosc She became royalty...
 
"MarryMeForENGThoughIDontLoveU"
 
@RohanJhunjhunwala can you showcase it?
 
@LeakyNun currently it can draw fixed output shapes
Sample code as follows
 
@RohanJhunjhunwala post TIO link please
 
"GuyHelpsOtherGuyTalkBetter"
 
3:50 AM
"OrphanKillsUncleInFire"
 
The King's Speech
 
@El'endiaStarman the king's speech
 
@LeakyNun TIO does not support graphical output... It will only function in the desktop implementation...
 
Ninja
 
> beggar finds unexpected magic
 
3:51 AM
@DJMcMayhem I think I happened to see part of that one. No idea what its name is though.
 
@RohanJhunjhunwala Alright
 
"PuckAllOfYou"
 
@Sherlock9 The Mighty Ducks could possibly work.
 
Oh yeah
 
@El'endiaStarman Really? The title's pretty memorable
 
3:51 AM
@ConorO'Brien Aladdin.
 
@El'endiaStarman yup!
 
But no, I was thinking Shakespeare :D
 
I like that movie :3
 
> GirlGrannyWolfActor&Bunny
 
@DJMcMayhem I never saw or heard the title.
 
3:53 AM
"OgrePullsRescueOutOfHisAss"
 
@DLosc it sounds like red riding hood :P
 
@ConorO'Brien Is there a bunny in Red Riding Hood? ;^)
 
Looney Tunes version of Red Riding Hood
 
"LostRoyalGirlLearnsShesQueen"
@Sherlock9 Shrek.
 
I wanna guess Sleeping Beauty
 
3:54 AM
And that's a fantastic summary.
@Sherlock9 Almost, but no.
 
XD
 
@ConorO'Brien "The 39 clues"
 
"FoxAndBunnySolveMystery"
 
Zootopia
 
Zootopia
damnit ninja'd
 
3:56 AM
Yeah, it's hard to not give that one away immediately. :P
 
Nobody on "74aliens", "MarryMeForENGThoughIDontLoveU", or "PuckAllOfYou"
Last one was not The Mighty Ducks
Last two are Shakespeare
 
I don't know Shakespeare, so...
 
@Sherlock9 A Midsummer Night's Dream on the last one
if I remember where puck comes from
 
@El'endiaStarman Hint: Russian.
 
3:57 AM
Yep
Alright for the second one, I may be misremembering Richard III
 
"EvilEnigmaCaptShanghaisWriter"
 
@El'endiaStarman Anastasia
 
@Sherlock9 Bingo.
 
And "74aliens" is Independence Day
 
@Sherlock9 After looking up Looney Tunes' Red Riding Hood, I'm gonna say it doesn't fit "Actor".
 
3:58 AM
@Sherlock9 74?
 
@DLosc wild guess, "who framed roger rabbit?" :P
 
July 4
In American date format
 
ohh
 
@HelkaHomba I feel like it's Rush Hour, since that's like the only Chinese movie I can think of that would fit. :P
 
oh, 7/4
 
3:59 AM
@ConorO'Brien Ha! ^_^ No...
 
Oh, clever on the 7/4 -> 74.
 
> this one dude messes shit up.
 
Yeah, I figured that's where you guys may have got confused. Sorry :D
 
@El'endiaStarman No. I'm using that word as a verb
 
@HelkaHomba Inception?
 
3:59 AM
@ConorO'Brien ah, that's too vague
 
@HelkaHomba Is it The Third Man?
