snailchilts: looking at it, the biggest obstacle to me using the go language is lack of an XML toolchain02:27
ojwbooh, that sounds like a nice feature!02:28
ibeardsleewhy do people need something other than perl?02:30

ajmitchfor the monthly perl UG meeting? :)02:33
chiltsibeardslee: because Go and NodeJS and other things let you think in different ways :)02:34
chiltssnail: yeah, good call ... I guess one may come along at some stage :)02:34
ojwbajmitch: really one can write impenetrable code in any language - perl just offers more assistance then some02:34
chiltsI wanted to try Erlang a few years ago but didn't ... NodeJS and Go are my new pet languages :D02:34
* ajmitch has seen some hairy python code02:34

chiltsand a little funny (though that might be the same thing)02:37

* snail has a itch to write a javascript BBC BASIC V emulator so he can play that game, but decides not to scratch it02:48
snailscratches https://github.com/stuartyeates/strawperson instead02:50
ojwbsnail: yes, I've had that itch too03:15
ojwba few quirks of the BBC BASIC implementation are exploited, which makes it a little trickier03:16
ojwblike s=s+1 working even when s doesn't previously exist and IF0ELSE to unbranch03:17
snailojwb: what you mean is that you have pre-supplied test-cases for your project?03:52
