mp_en_viaje: myeah ;/
mp_en_viaje: maybe ;; is the right choice ? o, no, of course not, C semanticized that too
mp_en_viaje: -- works in ada and there alojne, and so the fuck on.
mp_en_viaje: actually mysql too
mp_en_viaje: honestly i think my first guess is also correct, /* */ is the widest
mp_en_viaje: i guess we'll have to patch bash to recognize it, and that's that.
jfw: Um. And ada, sql, patch, lisp, python... ~everything not C-like ?
jfw: heh, apparently mysql does do /* */
mp_en_viaje: mysql too.
mp_en_viaje: a sorry lol.
mp_en_viaje: jfw, what casn you do ? humanity requires a universal comment format, because there may not be computers before there's no literate code.
mp_en_viaje: proposing to continue with "here, like this, there, like that" nonsense is much like proposing to continue with a formulation of arithmetic that has no 0 "because look at all these abacuses we made".
mp_en_viaje: burn them.
jfw: well then, seems we're solving a bigger problem than I realized
mp_en_viaje: possibru
mp_en_viaje: spyked, http://paste.deedbot.org/?id=nf53
nicoleci: whaack, id love to surf!
jfw: also http://logs.ossasepia.com/log/trilema/2020-03-04#1958852 occurred to me, and I figured "to irritate the kind of people who complain about such things". Looks like I should indeed ask more things.

jfw: I tried a nearby "GNU Awk 4.1.3" on 1gb of `yes`. The direct reading was consistently slower than both input redirection and cat | , which is certainly suspicious in itself; seemed to work though
jfw: http://logs.ossasepia.com/log/trilema/2020-02-21#1958424 - she declines; for one thing, she translates into English only.
ossabot: Logged on 2020-02-21 01:58:17 mircea_popescu: jfw, tell mom to come in sometime, i wouldn't mind commissioning ru versions of some trilema articles from ye 30year veteran editor of the executive intelligence review.
mp_en_viaje: jfw, try on say 64gb
mp_en_viaje: ah, okay.
