mircea_popescu: what's the difference you'd say ?
mircea_popescu: line rather than paragraph ? ☟︎
ascii_field: mircea_popescu: sorta like the difference between meat chess and epistolary chess
mircea_popescu: the only problem with that thing is that IT makes emotion unreadable
mircea_popescu: no, it's not "the internet". it's the usenet/bbs/forum model.

BingoBoingo: Seriously. My choices to avoid mouthbreathing until this things resolves are 1. Sign my name to the methlist 2. Placebo 3. Topical spray that can't reach site of action because of cold related fluid build up
BingoBoingo: And no. A fucking neti pot is not an option because I'm not a hippy and I don't want fucking brain parasites because this is the third world.
BingoBoingo: Apparently brewing an immediate pseudophedrine precursor (With Yeast and Dextrose!) isn't too bad. Maybe there's some way to astroturf the hippies into promoting "natural" pseudoephedrine brewing
BingoBoingo: Bullshit phenylephrine placebo with 4x side effects and 0x actual effect
jurov: luckily i so far did not need meth precursors, only *cetizine pills and benifuki tea
jurov: *cetirizine pills
jurov: and the tea is expensive, tho
BingoBoingo: Ah, if I break down and sign my name to the list I'll prolly get cetirizine + pseudoephedrine but I dunno what that tea is
jurov: japanese import

ascii_field: ben_vulpes: i was looking at 'company-mode'. where does it actually get the tags ?
BingoBoingo: !up bad_duck
ben_vulpes: ascii_field: i believe that to be major-mode dependent. see 'backends'.
ascii_field: ben_vulpes: which ones have you tried ?
ascii_field: ctags is worthless
ascii_field: (if i can't define a symbol and have it IMMEDIATELY typecompletable, it's shit)
ascii_field: even microshit got this right
ascii_field: but here in 'civilized' world, no dice
phf: ascii_field: i believe if you want to get company mode working with C++ you have to muck around with either clang or CEDET
ascii_field: no dice
ascii_field: i use gcc not only because clang is made by enemy but ONLY GCC BUILDS FOR MY ARCH
ascii_field: i do embedded
ascii_field: for fuck's sake
ascii_field: i have motherfucking inline asm in my src
ascii_field: no clang.
phf: ascii_field: i mostly said it to make you twitch, since i know clang is out, and CEDET is a major pain in the ass to setup. i periodically go through exercise every couple of years, and give up in disgust
ascii_field: at this point i fully believe that editor and compiler must be THE SAME PROGRAM ☟︎
ascii_field: and that what we have now makes the same amount of sense as having a separate gas and brake pedal for each of 4 wheels in a car.
ben_vulpes: ascii_field: only the clojure mode.
phf: ascii_field: i don't know about company mode, but builtin dabbrev-expand will pull from current buffer, other buffers or else TAGS, so it sort of satisfies your request for "what i just typed should be available". but your point stands, this is not to run things
ascii_field: useless
phf: there's a nice demo of Lucid xemacs based c++ environment that does all kinds of dynamic things. '95, since then, much progress.
ascii_field: for one thing, i DON'T NEED a thing that fucks with my buffer layout!!
ascii_field: for another thing, i don't ever want to have to think about the 'tags'
ascii_field: as soon as i type out a symbol, it ought to be in the completion list
ascii_field: along with anything reachable via the #include's , and any and all language keywords,
ascii_field: and any valid struct elements / class members in cpp / etc.
