or like that
yea cool idea
henriqueleng
would b64decode/b64encode wark?
work*
FRIGN
stateless:
I'm working on a bignum-library :)
suckless way
the way I see it it shouldn't be complex to implement
:D
tm512
arbitrary length arithmetic?
FRIGN
tm512: yeah
CandyGumdrop
That's not possible because you won't be able to address the memory containing massive numbers which take up more than 2^64 bytes
tm512
that's a limitation of 64 bit computers though :P
FRIGN
Yeah, fu*k that
atmc
FRIGN: you mean lisp?
:)
FRIGN
atmc: :P
CandyGumdrop
The non-arbitrary-length pointer size in any computer means it can't be implemented even if it's not limited to 64-bits
FRIGN
CandyGumdrop: Are you trolling? Also, I don't think you know how this works.
Also, done right, you can represent numbers waaay larger than 2^64 on 64 bit
but I'm not sure you know the IEEE floating point spec
else you would know it
CandyGumdrop
I do know what you mean, but I'm saying there's always some limit in how you store numbers where you have to give a fixed limit to something
FRIGN
CandyGrumdrop: No sh*t, Sherlock
If computing was unlimited, we wouldn't have bloody Numerical Mathematics
Evil_Bob
UNLIMITED POWAAAAR
CandyGumdrop
Even if you're given a theoretical infinitely big space to store data
FRIGN
Then we would just punch in our definitions and raw algos and let it compute
dude, just shut up man
you are wasting my time
troll on bbs or sth
CandyGumdrop
Why do you say "troll"?
FRIGN: What's with the nastiness? I think you're misunderstanding what I'm saying
FRIGN
CandyGumdrop: I am aware that computers are discrete machines. In Discrete Mathematics, the term "infinity" does not exist. If CS experts talk about unlimited, they mean it's not fixed at runtime.
CandyGumdrop
I'm saying I think you'd have to store somewhere a number to say how much space a representation of a number will take, which needs a fixed amount of space itself, unless you store it like a NUL-terminated string, but then you don't know how big it is beforehand
Evil_Bob
get MOAR RAM
k0ga
kori: I think is better if you send me it by mail
k0ga@shike2.com
FRIGN
CandyGumdrop: It won't be fixed, as I said in the beginning
if it's fixed size, it's not unlimited :P
CandyGumdrop
FRIGN: What I'm saying is the size of the data used to define the size of the data would be fixed
FRIGN
Well, that is a given
stateless
lol
wtf are you guys talking about?
http://www.flavum.com/Picts/Static.jpg
there
in any case what you are talking about is useless
you wouldn't be able to solve new classes of problems if you had infinite ram
so just get back to coding
i.e. the set of computable functions would be the same

kori, please implement a suckless font drawing library which fullfills my request for the specific character.
Then it will look better.
The overlapping is on purpose, because otherwise st would need to know fontconfig and xft internals.
retard
16:23 < __20h__> Wassup homies?
this made me laugh a lot
st looks a lot better than that picture for me
atmc
yea it has to be font
retard
with alsamixer the box drawing characters at the top and bottom don't line up, but the actual lines are contiguous and nice
atmc
for me everything looks fine
retard
i was wondering if having some kind of unicode input wouldn't be nice though
like the ctrl-shift-u stuff
i can always echo the characters, but sometimes you just want to insert a quick non-printing space to avoid badwords :3
and that's kinda hard to select and paste
kori
atmc: any font does it for me really
atmc
kori: just tried the default font and that worked
