They're kind of one and the same, given how lobbying and cronyism works.  If some corrupt politician does a good job of fucking over the people he represents, his buddies in the industry will reward him with a nice cushy job after his term is up.  It works the other way around too, a good ass-kisser and dick-sucker like Macron gets rewarded with presidency after working in banking industry.
But the government itself has limits, and that's why evil things like the private Federal Reserve corporation exist.

Actually the central banks can pretty much force any government to do whatever they want, because as the adage goes "the man with the gold makes the rules".  Any government that doesn't toe the line gets sent "freedoms" like Lybia, or gets sanctioned to hell like Russia.  Any government official not playing ball gets removed or assassinated.  The central banks can just throw a bunch of money, propaganda, and goons at the problem until the problem goes away.  In some cases like Russia, maybe it takes more money and time, but they don't care, because they're the kind of people that start world wars and profit no matter which side wins.
Your insistence to focus on the government shows that you drank the kool-aid.  The government is only there for one purpose:  so the plebs can have something irrelevant to vent their anger at.  The entire government consists of disposable figureheads whose sole purpose is to absorb blame.  If people weren't brainwashed, they'd never consider rebelling against the government, because that's the entire fucking trap.  They would go directly to lynch all the central bankers.

Yes, they are and the boomers wouldn't go walking around the capital on Jan 6, they'd instead go to Wall Street.  Now maybe they would also just walk around and tour the place instead of lynching bankers, who knows.  After all, the OWS protests were subverted easily enough, even though it was obvious the bankers were directly responsible for the toxic financial assets and consequential market crash.

The government can't just leave all kinds of paper trails for people to find that point to their corruption.  To some extent some of that can be covered-up even if it's found out, but that's more of a defensive measure, and if they have to restort to that it means they already fucked up.  So that's why they they use proxies to do their dirty work.  It's not much different if CIA niggers train some useful idiots in Ukraine to topple their government in 2014, that's a proxy too.  Or if they get some fellows from the middle-east to fly some planes into a couple big buildings in NYC (or at least make it look like they did and blame them for it), yeah they need a proxy for that too because they can't just attack their own citizens.  You understand there is such thing as a narrative that most of the population has been brainwashed into believing, and if the government acts completely out of character, then this will wake people up to begin questioning their reality.  This can't be allowed to happen until the population has been completely enslaved via social credit score and CBDC.  We're not there yet, but we're getting close to that point.  And if that does come to pass, then this whole charade will no longer be necessary and they're drop the veil.

You mean like when politicians willingly ignored Corona, knowing it would infect the entire country, and used that information to play stocks and get fucking rich? Because that even made it to the normalfag news and no one fucking cared. 
Or maybe when Epstein had an almost literal paper trail that got ignored, and no one cared. Or maybe when he "killed himself" in jail and no one cared. Maybe when his helper just happened to commit "suicide" right as the cameras "malfunctioned" and no one fucking cared. 
Normalfags want to maintain the status quo and history has prove time and time again the population will happily eat shit as long as they aren't aware they are starving, and with bugs normalfags won't ever starve.

I rarely encountered those games, usually they are a sign of being unmaintained. Artix aur works for many games.
Alternative interactive shells for Lunix
fish babbies and ((( PowersHell ))) are not welcome!

I'm currently using Zsh (i would probably use mksh but it segfaulted on Arch when I tried it). Before Zsh, I used Bash which is full of GNUisms, it's bloated and even harmful (https://mywiki.wooledge.org/BashPitfalls). But I know I must keep bash installed because a lot of stuff needs it.
I'm considering trying out one of the following (probably scsh and elvish):
- GNU Emacs+eshell
- scsh ("Unix shell embedded in Scheme"): https://github.com/scheme/scsh
- elvish (seems pretty bloated; it has a built-in file manager): https://elv.sh/
- rc from Plan9
- tcsh (but do not use it for scripting: http://harmful.cat-v.org/software/csh & https://www.grymoire.com/Unix/CshTop10.txt (this site also has a ton of great info)
- Ion (?): https://gitlab.redox-os.org/redox-os/ion/
- tclsh: install Tcl and read https://wiki.tcl-lang.org/page/Is+tclsh+or+wish+suitable+as+a+login+shell  Also see >>4021

I think using a real language (like Tcl, Ruby or Perl) for scripting is better than using UNIX shell.
>a real language
I have been thinking about a new interactive shell. Given the much higher refresh rate and cheap refresh cost (not printing on paper), it may be worth it to design a better TUI for interactive uses. Sometimes scripting in the shell is desired but it may be a good idea to abstract the interface of a shell from the language itself.
>I think using a real language (like Tcl, Ruby or Perl) for scripting is better than using UNIX shell.
The problem with Tcl is that it is a dying language, sadly.

>inb4 Perl is unreadable
Bad programmers write bad and unreadable code regardless of the language. The main reason why I kind of like Perl are: PCRE, Perl Monks website, CPAN, POD and unveil/pledge on OpenBSD. It's also the "original" UNIX sysadmin scripting language, and it is installed on almost any machine that runs a UNIX-like OS. To learn more about Perl, see perldoc perltoc 

>inb4 why not ((( Python )))?
Python sucks. Ruby is like Python but done properly. Ruby does OOP better, Ruby has better interactive REPL. Python's whitespace-based syntax sucks. And why is Python being used for writing serious programs where performance matters (like games and machine learning)? Probably because ((( Google ))) used to push for Python before Golang become a thing.
Replies: >>5096
I'd learn and swim in Perl for eternity before I would even touch Ruby. Python sucks for lots of reasons, format policing being one of them. But holy shit Ruby managed to have a worse syntax than perl.
The only "real language" there is Tcl and it's not a particularly good one. Anyway, the best POSIX sh-like shell for unix systems is oksh.
Replies: >>5103
There is also oil (it's written in Python so does it even count as an option?), nushell (written in Rust, does it even count as an option?) and oh. I just use ksh. Nothing fancy but fancy things tend to be new and current year soygrammers can't make anything good.

>i would probably use mksh
Use oksh (the OpenBSD KornShell). Is there even any advantage to using mksh? Pretty sure oksh is the same thing but more developed, actually finished and also not dead. I also have zsh here but I'm not entirely sure that using it really benefits me. In case you haven't used anything like it before, you have to set an ENV variable in your .profile to define where the shell's configuration file for interactive (not login) shells will be (in my case it's ~/.shrc). My zsh configuration files just source those other files, other than zsh-only stuff, for portability.

It's neat enough. You can run Emacs commands inside of it, which is cool. A lot of programs are not going to work in that, though, so other than for running Emacs commands, it's not a very good interactive shell. As examples, file managers can't run in eshell (not that you would need one, since you can just run dired). Though they do run correctly in tclsh along with fzf and other things you may want to use.

I remember that there was a Guile version at some point. That's why I know that it even exists. Unfortunately it seems to be dead.
"An incomplete port of the Scheme shell (scsh) was once available for Guile as a separate package. However this code has bitrotten somewhat. The pieces are available in Guile’s legacy CVS repository, which may be browsed at http://cvs.savannah.gnu.org/viewvc/guile/guile-scsh/?root=guile.

For information about scsh see http://www.scsh.net/.

This bitrotting is a bit of a shame, as there is a good deal of well-written Scheme code in scsh. Adopting this code and porting it to current Guile should be an educational experience, in addition to providing something of value to Guile folks. "

I think no port of it is absolutely perfect, but it's close enough. But from what I tried, it doesn't seem to have any keyboard shortcuts, so it sucked to use interactively. Maybe there is a way to add them and I just don't know.

What would be good interactive shell?
What should the user interface of a computer be?
A computer system should run free sofware and follow the Seven Laws of Sane Personal Computing: http://www.loper-os.org/?p=284 (Ideally the hardware is FOSS as well). Also, having a TPM 2.0 module is one of the requirements of Botnet 11, which reminded me of this article: https://www.gnu.org/philosophy/can-you-trust.html

Here are some random thoughts...

PowersHell has some interesting features, like Format-Table (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/powershell/scripting/samples/using-format-commands-to-change-output-view?view=powershell-7.2).
But M$ wanted to be different just for the sake of it: Get-Help instead of just Help (it sucks that you need to Update-Help or does it?) Also, PowersHell is too bloated and harmful to be your actual shell. PowersHell is only useful if you are a sysadmin at a place with Windoze machines. I remember reading a book called "Learn Windows PowerShell in a Month of Lunches". Also, apparently there is a "helpful feature": By default, PowersHell truncates output (lines) if it's too long. What if M$ corp. would have used some kind of BASIC (Qbasic?) instead of crappy and wimpy Batch scripts in Windows?

TempleOS was and still is really cool: you could put sprites into text documents, everything was hyperlinked,  like HTML or TexInfo (the downside of man-pages is that they aren't hyperlinked by default. Also, man-pages should contain more examples). The TempleOS system and the interface are fully integrated. What if you had something like Norton Commander or Midnight Commander? You could have a pane for executing shell commands and you would see the output there. Also, Acme is interesting: https://invidious.snopyta.org/watch?v=dP1xVpMPn8M (there is a Linux port. And also check out http://acme.cat-v.org/) In addition to Acme, there is also Rio (form Plan9) and Wio (https://wio-project.org/) that are kind of interesting.

You could use emacs as your login shell, or better use EXWM (https://github.com/ch11ng/exwm) as your window manager. SLY seems like magic. LispM were magic. I tried Squeak (a Smalltalk implementation) a few years ago, and it seemed like magic.

< There also was Lucid Energize (a cool C/C++ programming environment): https://invidious.snopyta.org/watch?v=pQQTScuApWk

You could use Scheme or Common Lisp REPL as your interactive shell if you created a macro that would make it execute shell programs when you prefixed the line with ,s (I think). For example you would type: ,s emerge sbcl or something... Actually, apparently, there is a tutorial tutorial that turns Clisp into your login shell: https://clisp.sourceforge.io/clash.html
I guess you also could install StumpWM (https://stumpwm.github.io/) and set up a interactive Common Lisp REPL and leave it running in the background?

A Story About ‘Magic'

Some years ago, I (GLS) was snooping around in the cabinets that housed the MIT AI Lab's PDP-10, and noticed a little switch glued to the frame of one cabinet. It was obviously a homebrew job, added by one of the lab's hardware hackers (no one knows who). You don't touch an unknown switch on a computer without knowing what it does, because you might crash the computer. The switch was labeled in a most unhelpful way. It had two positions, and scrawled in pencil on the metal switch body were the words ‘magic' and ‘more magic'. The switch was in the ‘more magic' position.

I called another hacker over to look at it. He had never seen the switch before either. Closer examination revealed that the switch had only one wire running to it! The other end of the wire did disappear into the maze of wires inside the computer, but it's a basic fact of electricity that a switch can't do anything unless there are two wires connected to it. This switch had a wire connected on one side and no wire on its other side. It was clear that this switch was someone's idea of a silly joke. Convinced by our reasoning that the switch was inoperative, we flipped it. The computer instantly crashed.

Imagine our utter astonishment. We wrote it off as coincidence, but nevertheless restored the switch to the ‘more magic’ position before reviving the computer. A year later, I told this story to yet another hacker, David Moon as I recall. He clearly doubted my sanity, or suspected me of a supernatural belief in the power of this switch, or perhaps thought I was fooling him with a bogus saga. To prove it to him, I showed him the very switch, still glued to the cabinet frame with only one wire connected to it, still in the ‘more magic’ position. We scrutinized the switch and its lone connection, and found that the other end of the wire, though connected to the computer wiring, was connected to a ground pin. That clearly made the switch doubly useless: not only was it electrically nonoperative, but it was connected to a place that couldn't affect anything anyway. So we flipped the switch.

The computer promptly crashed. This time we ran for Richard Greenblatt, a long-time MIT hacker, who was close at hand. He had never noticed the switch before, either. He inspected it, concluded it was useless, got some diagonal cutters and diked it out. We then revived the computer and it has run fine ever since.

We still don't know how the switch crashed the machine. There is a theory that some circuit near the ground pin was marginal, and flipping the switch changed the electrical capacitance enough to upset the circuit as millionth-of-a-second pulses went through it. But we'll never know for sure; all we can really say is that the switch was magic.

I still have that switch in my basement. Maybe I'm silly, but I usually keep it set on ‘more magic’.

1994: Another explanation of this story has since been offered. Note that the switch body was metal. Suppose that the non-connected side of the switch was connected to the switch body (usually the body is connected to a separate earth lug, but there are exceptions). The body is connected to the computer case, which is, presumably, grounded. Now the circuit ground within the machine isn't necessarily at the same potential as the case ground, so flipping the switch connected the circuit ground to the case ground, causing a voltage drop/jump which reset the machine. This was probably discovered by someone who found out the hard way that there was a potential difference between the two, and who then wired in the switch as a joke.


The story is true.
It would be nice if Tom Knight would append his position on the purpose of the switch to the end of the story. I assume that the other side of the switch used to be connected, and it used to do something useful, and I further assume that the need for it went away when the paging box was added. But I don't know.

(the story continues in the link below.) The switch was needed for a mod that enabled some kind of special mode. The special mode got later removed.

Some says -Os works for embedded and small systems. Some say otherwise. As usual the answer is benchmark and do both.
The answer is yes and no. It depends on the CPU and the program. You can find benchmarks that point to either direction.

GCC and Clang don't know how much cache you got if you're compiling for a generic target, this is the core issue. If you use -march=<some arch>, they do, and they consistently produce faster machine code with -O2 in such a case.

I have used Sway (https://swaywm.org/) in the past and it worked without any issues (I just had to set 1 environment variable: MOZ_ENABLE_WAYLAND=1). However, I personally don't like i3 or Sway. And I want a stacking WM Wayland Compositor. I know that Hikari (https://hikari.acmelabs.space/) exists but it seems like a special snowflake project, somehow. I have great hopes for Enlightenment in future (https://www.enlightenment.org/about-wayland) but at the moment the next best Wayland compositor that is not Sway or Hikari seems to be Labwc (https://github.com/labwc/labwc). Labwc is an OpenBox clone for Wayland. My plan is to install Swaybg (for setting the background), Mako (a notification daemon, https://github.com/emersion/mako), Seatd (https://git.sr.ht/~kennylevinsen/seatd), Wofi (a clone of Rofi for Wayland, https://hg.sr.ht/~scoopta/wofi), Xwayland and perhaps Waybar (https://github.com/Alexays/Waybar). Also, one of problems with Hikari is that it uses libucl, which has a possible memory corruption bug: https://github.com/vstakhov/libucl/issues/255 and the Hikari AUR package contains 1 executable with ((( SUID ))) enabled on /usr/bin/hikari-unlocker (even though the PKGBUILD should build Hikari without any SUID bits).

The only major problems I have with Labwc are that XF86audio* keys don't work and that scrolling a window (like a web browser or a text editor) is not pleasant (but mouse wheel works fine). There aren't any problems with scrolling or using volume keys when using Sway or X11 (I haven't tried Hikari yet).

He is a coward and a faggot. Who says there must be names involved in projects?
He is one of those people mixing two very different matter together. Maintaining a piece publicly available FOSS, and maintaining the community around it. Without irl names, there can't be community attacks and other faggotry pressure. He is a coward because he doesn't want the hassle of setting up a project publicly with pseudonyms or he is a faggot who works in FOSS because he wants his name up there for his resume. Both of them should fuck off. When you work in a project and you know bringing in names causes issues, it's time to shut the fuck up and just fucking program, don't care about the "community".
"Communities" issues are caused by jew controlling the general social norm. If the community exists outside of social norm, there wouldn't be any pressure except when the owner is soy faggot who can't stop conforming. The owner of the project's community puts the project at the top, not about optics or supporting whatever is popular or talk about politics.
But no, they have to say "I did a thing" and write that on their resume. Flipping up their tummy to show off them being good goys. Either ignorantly stupid hoping no one attacks them or purposely having nothing to hide to be an extra good goy.

Racket 2
I recently found out that Racket 2 was renamed to "Rhombus". For those who don't know, Racket 2 is/was intended to be the successor of Racket. Rhombus doesn't have S-expression based syntax (i.e. no parenthesis). Why? Because apparently some people have difficulties with typing parenthesis...
It's a good thing that there are other good Scheme implementations, like Chicken and Guile 3.0, and that there is the Guix package manager (which can be used on other distros, in addition to Guix System).

Very nice stuff there. I was looking into Lisp Machine VMs a while ago, and I found this:
The MIT machines are probably more interesting to me because from what I hear, they didn't fetishize the mouse to an absurd degree. And I use Emacs and that's closely connected to its history and I want to see what it can do. I actually read multiple times that there are similarities between those Lisp systems and TempleOS. Maybe God was pulling the strings and telling us "make it like this, humans" and we failed because that's our specialty. Thanks, Symbolics.

The Plan 9 stuff is pretty interesting. I have never tried the OS myself and looking at it superficially, it looks very basic, but the more I see it, the cooler it gets, and I find myself wishing I had access to some of its features when I'm thinking about how to write something. It's a shame that we are stuck with just Unix when so many other systems have done amazing things and then died off. Though again, Plan 9 did take reliance on the mouse too far. The keyboard is the only device that you absolutely need to use, so it should be self-sufficient, though also having pointing device support can be a helpful addition and I think not supporting it is bad as well. Sometimes you're not typing and just want to lay down and lazily do things with one hand.

The Smalltalk demonstration reminded me, I was looking at random stuff a while ago and found these:

Maybe it could interest someone here. I hope I didn't find this here somewhere and then forget, that would be embarrassing.

I'm no expert, quite the opposite, but I think it's safe to say that it's a lot easier to change your preferences (that are based on habit and a sense of normalcy) than it is to fit Lisp into a C-like mold. People have been trying to change that syntax for 60 years and yet here it is to this day, and people are still trying and failing to replace it, and there are still people that like it and don't care. And it's not like Lisp is even that strongly established, it's a niche language. Then again, maybe people are just that dumb and by coincidence, none of the actual geniuses attempted that. Doesn't seem very likely. Maybe Terry could have done it if he knew Lisp, or maybe it would just have been HolyLisp instead of HolyC.

The issue with S-expressions isn't the S-expressions themselves. It's the fact that you can't break down large expressions into multiple statements in LISP. Everything is always the argument to something else so eventually you have this huge, unmanageable, singular, nested expression that has layers upon layers like an onion, and it's difficult to understand small pieces.

Compare this textbook Scheme program:
(define rember
  (lambda (a lat)
      ((null? lat) (quote ()))
      ((eq? a (car lat)) (cdr lat))
      (else (cons (car lat) (rember a (cdr lat)))))))

To the equivalent C:
language: c
lattice *lat
rember(atom a, lattice *lat)
	return (*lat == NULL ? NULL
		: a == *lat ? ++lat
		: memmove(lat, rember(a, lat+1), len(rember(a, lat+1))));
They suffer the same problem. Lots of layers.

We don't have that issue in C because we have statements:
language: c
lattice *lat
rember(atom a, lattice *lat)
	if (*lat == NULL)
		return (NULL);
	if (a == *lat)
		return (++lat);
	return (memmove(lat, rember(a, lat+1), len(rember(a, lat+1))));

The granularity for splitting things in LISP is defining another function. In C, it's much finer, with individual statements inside functions, which makes this aspect of the language more readable.

I suggest a syntax where you have S-expressions and polish notation, but also C statements.
That way you have LISP's beauty where variable declarations, function declarations, operators, functioncalls, conditionals, and so on all have the same visual representation which also happens to match the program's logic naturally, but you can also break larger programs down into more intelligible pieces more easily.

He is not complaining about parenthesis. It is how s-expression has everything in one expression and takes more effort to read. Syntax with statements provide structure to assist reading.

Replies: >>5292

its just banter, I'm mostly on the fence with this issue.
I would challenge the notion that C-like syntax is more intuitive, as this sounds like an opinion and not really a fact.

>It is how s-expression has everything in one expression and takes more effort to read
This has less to do with s-expressions and more to do with functional programming in general.
One could design an imperative language using s-exp, not that I'm advocating for it.

Imperative languages require you to explicitly design control flow graphs.
In scheme the structure of a function is a directed graph, its through function calls you implicitly build general flow graphs.
Its a fact that the structure of a function in lisp is inherently simpler than in an imperative lang (directed graphs ⊂ graphs).
All control flow is expressed either through higher order procedures, or many tightly coupled "straight line" functions.
Functional programs can be thought of as a heavily factored imperative programs where every "join" point in the graph is a named function, and edges are tail calls.

This would be the basis of my argument for functional being easier to read if I really gave a shit.

Not that its idiomatic scheme, but using macros and continuations you can augment scheme with explicit control flow operations found in "ALGOL" family languages.
Combined that with assigment operations and you basically have a "normal" language.
For instance "return" would be something like
(define rember
  (faggot-lambda (a l)
    (and (null? l) (return '()))
    (and (eq? a (car l)) (return (cdr lat)))
    (return (cons (car l) (rember a (cdr l)))))
(define rember
  (lambda (a l)
      (lambda (return)
        (and (null? l) (return '()))
        (and (eq? a (car l)) (return (cdr lat)))
        (return (cons (car l) (rember a (cdr l))))))
Replies: >>5293
>an opinion and not really a fact
It is mostly an opinion. The part where it can be argued is that processors is an imperative language interpreter. That is why C is more intuitive as it is closer to the machine. I argue that programmers should think like a processor, not the other way around, regardless of the productivity/engineering-hour argument.

Python is usually really good for quick stuff. There's a library for most things and you can do bullshit in just a couple lines of simplified english. 
That said the versioning is fucking shit and running old code that depends on exterior libraries is hell. If a code doesn't just run straight away you should just give up because it'll invariably need arbitrary versions of libraries and one of them may or may not have gotten nuked from the repos for being outdated.
What's poc?

Python is great for writing short scripts, it is the most comfortable to use language in the world. This also means it is probably the slowest as well. People that loved lisp in the past mostly loved it for the read eval print loop, which allowed to write the entire program right in the console, without ever compiling anything. Python and lisp are pretty much same thing, except for readability.

>Python and lisp are pretty much same thing, except for readability.
No. First, most modern Lisp dialects are compiled, so Lisps have better performance. Some Lisp even compile to C or native code: Steel Bank Common Lisp, GNU Emacs' elisp with libgccjit, Chicken Scheme compiles to C (for common lisp, there are also ECL and Clasp). The Python REPL is clearly inferior to the Guile REPL, for example. You can get the best REPL that's currently available for any language by using a LispM emulator or TempleOS/Smalltalk environment by using GNU Emacs and SLY or Geiser. Also, imo even Ruby has a better REPL (irb) than Python (or Lua).

> lisp is functional.
Not entirely true. Lisp dialects support all present paradigms (Common Lisp and Racket have great support for OOP, PicoLisp has prolog thing: https://picolisp.com/wiki/?tutpilog) and all future (via macros) paradigms of programming.

Chicken Scheme is at least as portable as C itself.
But that doesn't help me any, since I don't like depending on any big/complicated compiler.  Forth is more interesting, because you can just implement it yourself, with the core parts in assembly.  Then you could port it to another platform and only rewrite those core parts.  But obviously the Forth bits won't be as fast as C.  But I don't really care, so long as it's fast enough, and it should be since I don't care about new-fangled video games, streaming HD video, or basically anything modern, including the Internet post 90's dialup era.

Firefox had google analytics build in without a way to disable for years, even now it's opt-out and hidden. 
They intentionally fucked with h265 while instantly adding full support for every webm codec. 
Both of those happened shortly after they received large donations from google. 
Besides that they're even worse than google because the browser fucking stops working without access to mozilla's servers (happened recently in case you forgot) and they shove pocket, ads, and other useless bullshit in your face. 
They're controlled opposition at best, they just exist to trick privacy retards into giving google their info and to pretend there's more than one big browser in the market. Like I said, chromium is shit, but modern firefox is worse than shit.

I don't know why you would compare it to Nim when it's the exact opposite. Large spec, bootstraps from LLVM (IIRC), aims to be very robust, compiles down to C, C++, JS etc. Nothing against Nim, by the way. I would compare this language to Odin, since they seem to share a lot in common. Odin has more support from corpohomo, but it's still in heavy development and also depends on LLVM.

I think it's nice that it exists, the suckless philosophy applied to language and compiler design down to the initial compiler assembly. This is from the same group of people that work on Oasis Linux: https://github.com/oasislinux/oasis

Kek, yeah. Nugrammers are always terrible logicians.
For instance, they never realize that just because <pick a language> initializes variables to 0, it doesn't mean a variable can't be uninitialized. They never seem to realize that the issue isn't that a variable has an undefined value, but rather that it doesn't have a meaningful value. What's worse, a language that automatically initializes everything to 0 creates a programming style where you let the language implicitly initialize the value to 0 when you want a 0, so now it's not so straightforward to tell whether there is a bug in a program that uses a variable before assigning something to it because no intent was ever communicated.

Next up: "look at how simple it is to process text in my language, we have regexes, it's less lines of code than calling strsep() and strcspn() so it's simpler right?"

Nugrammers don't seem to connect the dots and realize that all that complexity doesn't disappear if you put it in a black box. I've had a guy seriously argue that Konsole is simpler than xterm because Konsole has less lines of code, when I told him to include all the KDE libraries it pulls, he said "you don't know how libraries work". This deer-in-front-of-the-headlights tier tard has crawled his way up a distro's power structure and is now part of its slow, painful death.

If a nu-lang designer really wants to make progress in language design, then he first has to realize progress is creating a language with more expressive power, better performance, and less ways to cause logical bugs.
They could work on implementing LISP more efficiently, LISP was made by excellent logicians and has the greatest expressive power I've ever seen, so it's already at the top of one metric, it could be improved in the others.
But nope, we need the next "C++ but it only has the subset I use" or the next "I added a GC all the bugs disappeared nao".
Replies: >>5404
His argument works by limiting the loc of a program, the less chance there will be a bug caused by what is written in the program. That excludes the functions not implemented in a program. To the extreme, I can implement my program in a library and include it, now it's free of bugs. That is a shift of responsibility as the programmer thinks bugs of the library is not his responsibility. It is not for him to fix but he is responsible for choosing that library.

Almost as if the improvement C can get is more libraries. Many C programs have their implementation of common algorithms and data structures.

The language is interesting. Other languages compiling to C is not a bad idea though. There is a C compiler on most platforms and building a language on C can make use of that, getting a C compiler is also easy af on most platforms.

I don't know why systemd fails to stop services so often. But you can reduce the time it waits for a service to stop.

>How can anyone use this shit? It's like the w10 of linux.
That's literally the point of systemd. Systemd is a clone of Apple's launchd. It also takes inspiration from windows' utilities. The goal of SYSTEMd is to be more than just init (PID 1). The goal of systemd is to be PID 1 and process supervisor AND all-in-one system management utility. This is why systemd keeps on adding more and more stuff. The goal of the project is to also to make as many Linux distros homogeneous as they can trick into using systemd. They also want to make GNU/Linux depend on Systemd. Remember that ((( Red Hat ))) is selling tech support services. I read https://www.unixsheikh.com/articles/the-real-motivation-behind-systemd.html and I'm convinced that Systemd is like a trojan horse. Also, remember Kdbus (https://lwn.net/Articles/641275/)? Systemd developers tried to add dbus into the mainline Linux kernel because they said that it makes it easier to implement some $feature for systemd!  Systemd fans also still pretend that the only alternatives for Systemd are upstart and SysVinit. While OpenRC, RunIt and GNU Shepherd exists.

I did do that ctrl+alt+del a lot since sometimes even tty2->power button won't work every other update or the shutdowns just take forever BUT even that sometimes refuse to work since it somehow unloaded my keyboard first before trying to unmount my drives and at one update (arch) systemd even forgot to fucking unmount my drives which I saw in the logs.
Btw the biggest problem was arch defaulting to use systemd coredump.
It would sometimes cause the HDD to be on 100% load when KDE-X11 compositor casually crashes dumping whole 4GB of multiple files on my slow drive and small root partition, it even disgustingly tried to dump shit when my drive was at 0MB left, also crashing the system again, causing it to dump over and over, this is worse than fucking Windows 10 boot loops which I've not experienced but I'm pretty sure it's more workable than having to go through your systemd binary logs just to figure out the root of the problem, well the solution was simple >>1 never had problems ever since I stopped using that shit.
What's worse is at the time there was no way to disable them completely at first, undocumented shit back then and even if you set storage to none or do as said on manual it would just dump anyways if the crash was not userspace or randomly just ignore your settings (classic red hat). Even remember that systemd bug where pressing arrow keys just switches to tty and makes that bios beeps lol.
Fucking disaster. Never do I want to see systemd on my machine. Pulseaudio is fine though since Pipewire is the systemd of audio, too many issues, I have NO FUCKING TIME to be a "Red Hat Enterprise Linux 2024" issue tracker and there's a reason RHEL still uses old as fuck systemd and pulseaudio while you don't because you're the product (gotcha lol, who thought leaving windows frees you from megacorps? not really).

Yeah. Of course, my problem with THOt, is that his MO for views is clickbaiting, fearmongering and putting too much emphasis on lowest-common-denominator targeting. At least mental outlaw and rob braxman are personable and don't need to pull CNN/MSNBC/Foxnews/tabloid-tier tactics to present issues with technology security.

The problem I have with the argument of "software security through walled gardens", is something that I feel can be explained with a gardening analogy: the monoculture problem.

Monoculture gardens (single plants of the same species) are susceptible to diseases the same way a singular OS or software is vulnerable to exploits, viruses, and the like. Likewise, the more-widespread something is cultured or grown, the more destructive a disease will be if it can attack a particular plant. This is why windows is notoriously-targeted for malicious software.

The problem with a walled garden approach, is that diseases aren't stopped if they're either floating in the atmosphere, or spread by contact to contact. In this case, all it takes is one bad actor with an internet connection, coding skills and the OS SDK to cause problems or fuck people's lives up. Now really, the walled garden problem is ubiquitous for a lot more than just windows. Hell, it can apply to hardware, it can apply to linux in ways too, the difference is that both people who want alternatives to other software, and people who are software purists are actually working against this problem. 

Ultimately, my problem with THOt and other channels with tech-fearmongering is the same reason anti-drug campaigns actually make more addicts than stop addictions: 
"If the fearmonger is wrong about something, what else did he get wrong?" 
"Would he even care that it was wrong?" 
"Would he lie to me?"
"Has he been lying to me this entire time?"
"Why the fuck should I trust him if he's wrong?" 
"Why should I trust him if he's been lying?"
"Why should I trust anyone that sounds remotely like him if his actions and arguments are based on falsities and lies?"
"He made this stuff sound so horrible, but he's wrong about it, it's not that bad, why should I care?..."

This is how people get apathetic to real dangers that cause real problems. This is why people like THOt piss me off.

Who cares if it's more secure? This added security isn't worth the walled garden of app stores, locked down firmware and lack of intercommunication between programs. Not to mention that you're mostly limited to the cuck shed of Google's JVM knockoff (which is another reason it's more "secure").

thankfully i have not seen any LGBT messages on my host since my system literally crashed exactly on june the first? however on the veeams i am starting to see pride related ads and logo changes there is also [Free to be U Be Worry Free with PrEP HIV advert] good lord i can feel the rainbow plague getting closer to me every day since this ad is PH oriented how do i stop this manila pride event? i dont wanna get OwO'd in public and my devices seized by DU30 due to bigotry
jesus christ this is literally my worst nightmare i trusted this program all these years for peace of mind and THIS is what i get? this crushing feeling of betrayal and false security knowing they can just inject lgbtware into my kernel modules anytime (is vmware coded by furfags i seriously hope not)
thank god Vbox isn't woke (even though oracle is) when i make my own chingchong company one day one of the first things ill do is by this asset from oracle to prevent them from injecting diversity crap and actually fix the code (i swear i dunno if feds are reading my posts as i do my thing on 4chud)
the last thing the linux community needs is some deranged mentally ill tranny furfag coding KVM kernel buggy driver code to detect piracy and open security holes under the guise of protecting creatorfags from art thieves
i wish i had a small plant or tree in my house so i could touch grass anytime i needed to (real life is just too tiring i need stronger copium juice)

also how do you quickly earn reddit gold coins i want to scrape the /r/lounge area? how should i structure my sob stories? should it be lgbt/UK themed? how much minimum karma do i need? should i participate on other subreddits first? to make my account look realistic since they can easily spot throwaways unlike 2018 plebbitors are getting more and more vigilant every year (i dont have an alt yet gonna make one if somebody helps me here)

bet that guy is a sissy egg.

in theory a "google android pixel phone" is secure when we are dealing with "secure as in corposhit security". nothing is truly ever "secure" though (secure as in security researcher) if you don't hack it yourself. think of Novena platform (which is more secure in practice), it's secure since the guy was a mad lad hacker who got skillz and kung fu, he even reverse engineered sd cards proprietary crap as a hobby.

corpo secure [is not equal to]  =/=  secure as in "all your base are belong to us"

you can claim both chromebook botnet and a thinkpad RYF approved are both secure BUT in a very contradicting way.

the botnet one is given excellent official security, maybe the wifi has more protections rings and the card gets wpa3/wpa4 updates BUT the thinkpad one would win freedom-from-botnet-wise despite probably not even supporting 80mhz/5ghz and wpa3 yet (or might never will unless you install blob kernel).

a pixel phone with graphene (non-discontinued support) is secure against a certain threat model but not on others. if anything, the same can be achieved by just fucking destroying your phone microUSB port, poof no more fucking cellebrite and other malware (such as NSO pegasus) on airports checkpoints or boats/ship travel. however there is no fucking way to know the integrity of your hardware since the hardware is not completely free. even your HDD is not completely free. there is no way out. your SD card has proprietary cpu, your "airplane mode" graphene won't help either since it has qualcomm botnet and would still phone to GPS/GNSS systems and you can still dial 911 and receive a reply even without a fucking SIM (or with a broken/unsubscribed SIM).

these claims of "the hated one" are just well-built schizo bait. even the video about his proclaimed "anonymous phone" is flawed since MANY android phones these days already has the feature to turn off the network permissions while he claimed it was only a graphene thing (originally the network per-app restriction was a cyanogenmod thing which got into omni/lineage and merged into aosp around lollipop but not widely readily available although pretty common on any oreo phone (or less) that supports treble system images.
only advantage of  graphene is certain features like hardened browser and more permissions/blocking and spoofing but it's still botnet inside (way much worse than a Postmarket|Replicant OS with busted data microUSB port)

him being "anonymous" is pure larp, google knows who he was since he has a youtube account. if anything I would just recommend you to watch rob braxman instead (a based Filipino Jazzist who is a ham radio pro and prepped for shtf as a hobby fucking based af)

its not even limited to that. you can in theory set up a fake cellid tower and force the target to receive either a tailored sms which causes a bug or even a call from a certain combination of "unnamed caller" which would cause a bug and execute other shit. then you can even combine it with phone number lookup which is on by default and chain it with another exploit and you got yourself pegasus-level backdoor installed. but it's true that MMS is widely unused but it is a glaring security cornhole.
the more "features" a device offers, the more bugs present and more bugs = more holes. bet you could even just abuse outdated binaries but most exploiters just target outdated phones - which there is a fucking lot of them out there (botnet on botnet, oh the irony).
there's only a few devices having vendor and security updates, the other-ones are phones that never activated ota updates or have none at all.

other than these "activate on receive" sms/mms/call zero-click exploits, there's also those shits about ACR (audio content recognition) and you can induce voice commands via high frequency or masked shit.

although getting malwares is the least of your problems, getting a (botnet) phone should be at the top of the PROBLEM list since they all have malware/adware/spyware preinstalled that you can read in all its ToS/PrivPol.
a spyware that listens to you all the time (hotword + mic), it has 10+ capture streams for some fucking reason on android 11 last I checked (/proc/asound/.../pcmNNc - aka pcm capture stream) to allow several apps to snoop on your mic, and tehre's also hidden sensor data that can also become microhpone, apps also read the manufacturers sussy sensors like a covert microphone, your acceleration and if you're using the phone in the bed, the phones even have multiple camera-facing and noise cancellation microphones that are bypassed by the main mic permission (apps can still hear you LOL) and then there's also the clipboard-grabbing apps (reddit, tiktok, lazada/shope/ali, 9gag, appgallery, and many more!) but that's not all, >>>/tech/5809 the spies also scry you using quantum rng on their server side using your phone as a medium.

it's probably sponsored ad. have ad block so I wouldn't really know but most of these g-adsense thing is based on your browsing pattern or location (you live in manila i guess), what you type on your search bar or had on your clipboard or your ip numbers logs, the ISP may disclose it to ad companies (even if you use private DNS) and they can reverse lookup the ip logs (and know very well that you browse 4chan, this site, etc.) worse is if you were using the ISP dns, dns is readable by anyone in the network and even worse since they can see the entire URL if the ISP had spoofed your dns so if you had browsed a gay discord they'd know it literally but since it's automated it's probably based on the client-side inputs, you just browsed the wrong sites and/or got the wrong cookies.

nah, it would be Marcos in 18 more days, hes pretty based btw. just use whonix if you're afraid of getting your shitpostings backtraced.

But to be real here, I really don't know what to do because for so many years, people have been so fucking alarmist when it comes to technology security that I don't know what actually works and what's just placebo. I can't buy into the schizoid conspirafag mentality that Gov/Big Corpro are simultaneously all-seeing-all-knowing-demons from 1984, because it conflicts with the black-comedy of incompetence and inability-to-enforce-boundaries that's absolutely rife among both Gov and Big Corpo.

The Commodore 64x is a Mini-ITX case (RasPi 4 too!) that looks like that best-selling micro from 1982, the Commodore 64!

It has anti-UV plastic and a much better keyboard though with Cherry MX Blue clicky switches and doubleshot SA keycaps.

You can get it in all sorts of fun colors including translucent with RGB backlight (your choice will be collected with the post-campaign survey) besides the classic breadbin colors of the VIC-20 and 64 and 16.

You can get the empty case (barebones) by itself or with a low-end (Extreme) or mid-end (Ultimate) motherboard with dedicated graphics.

The top Ultimate model with the mid-end motherboard
embedded Nvidia GTX 1650 4 GB graphics
9th gen Intel Core i5
8 GB SO-DIMM DDR4 installed, expandable up to 64 GB
512 GB NVMe M.2 SSD supports 6 Gb/s (M.2 22 * 80 SSD)
USB 3.0, HDMI, WiFI, Ethernet, Bluetooth
support for an additional hard drive with integrated 2.5" docking station
Similar to this higher-specced build: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pATl2pmvsf8

The basic Extreme model with the low-end motherboard
passive cooling
Intel Celeron J6412 (4 cores, 4 threads, burst frequency up to 2.6 GHz, base frequency 2.0 Ghz, 1.5 MB cache)

My guess: 1. They avoid the front page and stick to their hobby subreddits. 2. They go insane and lash out, and either get autofiltered or banned. 3. Worst case scenario, they get brainwashed. Most of the front page subreddits are drowning in spambots and reposters though. Damnthatsinteresting, nextfuckinglevel and whitepeopletwitter are the worst offenders.

Honestly, as far as I've seen, any social media that encourages cultures of popularity contests attract the worst kinds of narcissist. At this point, Reddit is becoming twitter/tumblr levels of bad, but Reddit also has managed to establish a lot of niche normalfag hobby boards. I feel that, if anything, hobby boards and the absolute billions of dollars poured into stock/crypto spambots are the only things keeping Reddit afloat. Reddit also has the "youtube problem," where it's userbase doesn't think it has alternatives, but there are, it's just not "popular" alternatives.

Popularity isn't guaranteed though. Digg was reddit before reddit existed. Yahoo bought Tumblr for $1.1 Billion, and killed 90% of it's userbase when they banned porn.

Be careful man. It's not just exif data that you should be careful about when posting photos of local businesses. Names, addresses, and contact info of local businesses can be used to at best approximate-identify your location, or at worst completely-dox you. This isn't even government-level tactics, this shit is bored-with-life-stalker type shit.

HWNDU's shenanigans is a perfect example of how people can stalk you based on broadcasted-info, although it's one of the more-extreme examples because of how many people they had analyzing the broadcast.

if you're able to source one but it's probably dated and unsupported. it is usually "illegal" to own lea tools and iirc these programs work much like adobe cloud where it is cloud managed and clients are traced.

if your tablet is on the list of twrp and cmwr (defunct) you can flash the recovery image (or boot image on some phones) and just grab everything. if your problem was lock pattern you can easily bypass that but if it's full device encryption it's probably harder.
otherwise you just transplant the emmc into a nand to usb board although that is high on risk of magic smoke coming out when a solder ball did not melt through.

would you look at pegasus targets:
>activist clergymen, health workers, doctors and scientists, human rights activist (not the antichrist or UN kind), people against human trafficking, drug czar, HVT journalists, non-corrupt politicians, ngo anti-pedo org (not the antichrist or UN kind).
they target mostly these: people who know about the pizzagate, has kompromat (is 5 steps ahead of qniggerlarp), has verifiable intel on human trafficking and pedo rings, etc. etc.

the world gubmint is mostly incompetent with mundane crimes like serial killers most BUT somehow they seem to be very compliant with these "high value targets" [in greentext above] who do not break the law but instead threatens some s.society/billionaire/trillionaire's revenue enough for those harmless academic/clergic/activist [targets] to be backdoored with sophisticated malware instead of actually targeting "high value criminal targets"

big corpo is the spy, government cannot directly spy on people since it would instigate mass outrage so it has to be something that isn't government which is the biggie corpo and the rest is basically on how to enforce the killgrid and geofencing [mostly on the good people though].
funny how we have all these spyware shit but there's still full-fledged pedo "director", fuckos, crime crazies, and corrupt people with zero opsec freely using botnet device, facebooc, and uploading their plans on public google docs or some shit but then the government and corpo just ignores them since what they're truly after are certain people [in greentext above] like a fucking scientist lol. like nigga, he's a botanist what the actual fuck did he do to get pegasus backdoor and usb firmware malware DMA?

The AUR has a plethora of patches and fixes that do not make it upstream, so what you compiled are Arch-native forks of the games from LGW, not the original sources. The repos listed on LGW are the "official" ones for each game, and they're mostly outdated, unmaintained, have dysfunctional build systems...etc so any regular user trying to build from them will most likely fail.

My Goal was to find the simplest bean burger recipe. Keyword, simple. I'm talking "oatmeal = oats, water, salt, and butter" simple. Something that can be used as a baseline for anons to add whatever they want into their bean burger.

The problem is, search results are shat up by reader's digest tier cookbook recipes that have so much shit in them, and zero recourse as to WHY THE FUCK THEY NEED TO BE THERE IN THE FIRST PLACE. Jesus fuck, even searching up a "simple" recipe on youtube is fucking useless because there's so much shit added into it and no explanation why it's fucking needed.

It honestly reminds me of the problems I have with programming tutorials and the shit that educational resources do. Most sources understand and teach you how to do the most basic of basics, but when you search for how and why things interact with each other, suddenly, nobody knows how the fuck anything works, and just dumps examples on you to copypaste it.

>Vegan faggot
Fuck veganism. I want this to be adjustable to include meat, broth, eggs, or whatever the fuck anons want with it. My thing is, I want to help anons figure out low-cost protein sources, with beans and oats being one of the forerunners for low-cost protein. 

Honestly, I fucking can't stand that vegans have fucking shat their way all across the bean burger recipe spectrum. Nothing is consistent, there is no "this is why we need this in this food," it's the same fucking "we threw this random shit together because out manager said it looked delicious," bullshit.

Really man. I had to vent, because it's been a full fucking week since anyone posted on /fit/, julay-/ck/ is dead as fuck, and I don't feel like playing around with 4cuck and their pozzed bullshit. Besides, this is the 'off-topic thead.' What the fuck else am I gonna do?
>Vegan faggot
Cool it with the pleonasm dude.
Tell me more Chinese secrets, anon-kun.
Cool rant. If no recipe satisfies you, why not do your own experiment? From what I see, the material cost is not high at all. Just boil some beans and mash them into a paste. You can add whatever you want to the paste. That's it, your "bean burger = mashed boiled beans + bread" simple burger. From there start trying out different combination, pan frying the paste, adding meat, sauces.
> with beans and oats being one of the forerunners for low-cost protein. 
This is way more of a /fit/ discussion but you are right since that board has a very low or near zero PPD it's probably ok to talk about it here.

If you are comitted to the gains, my goto is tuna-egg patties. The cheapest and most available source of protein probably ever. Add some hot sauce and siracha and they are actually really good

Also beans are fucking retarded and not in any capacity a complete protein. The amino acid profile is incomplete compared to eggs, tuna, pork shoulder or milk which are the same cost.

you can easily skim over those lengthy and complicated recipes.
most of the best recipes never require anything more than 10 ingredients.

not sure what you're trying to make (patties or buns)
but patties are easy to do, ground beef + onions + pepper and then you need some kind of binder like flour, then you can proceed to cut meat and add more beans or whatever vegetable then add more flavoring (stock powder or salt) since vegies are bland. frying veggies might be a good idea, anything that gives it chewy texture is better. mung beans are great if you can find them but you will need a pressure cooker (maybe boil it with meat stock/broth for more flavor).

most of the bloat ingredients are just many mix of spices so you'll have to invest on those first then just cut out all the spices on their bloated recipe and DIY your mix.
Does anyone know where I can find a list of flags for amd hardware encoding in ffmpeg and how to use them?
The ffmpeg documentation says nothing about anything in that regard and most of the standard encoding arguments are just ignored by it.

hey anons what are some useful things and fun things to do when banned on 4chan? (i got 3day'd but nah im not gonna evade) i want to put this time to good use since the hammer helped me pause my shitposting habbit (sorry for the late mass reply AD480p kicked in) surprisingly i can concentrate just fine on side tasks (kek i actually done that anti-vax chise meme in just hours not days) also coffee tastes like milk i dont feel energized at all and all the expensive meds feel like placidos is this normal for autists ike me?

alright serious talk is there some kind of neural network to detect if an avatar contains furry imagery or rainbows? i am going to make my own jewish mass media antisemitox collage with their names and pronouns (i just need an avatar scapper bot the rest is manual on GIMP)
https://archive.4plebs.org/pol/thread/161631920/ i also found this shortcut as template (no need to start from scratch though its a bit too big)
https://github.com/topics/ [furry/pride] (watch out these animals are responsible for inserting broken degenerate poz code on our good linux software)
if i were to make my own neural network to tell if a genital is natural or SRS'ed how should i start? i want the AI to highlight the anomalies of the image

Looks like vaapi is your best bet.

You should avoid stimulants such as coffee if you have adhd.
Just look up the best neural network image classifier and make your own training and test set.

"Why chose the pendant to syphilis when it comes to computer languages?

Python, that’s not a language, that’s a toy for masochists, that’s the fiddlediddle for the pampered who already tried everything, and love to be punished for every false stroke they do and being lectured and patronized by their language and who by a good hardware just to burn the value and the electricity for that in a factor of 29/30 into heat and lost time of life.

Python is not as bad as Java, I give that language that. But it’s not much better either.

And why do people chose Python? Because it is their first language. It is their only language, why do people do stupid things? Why do they stay with a wife that is permanently cheating on them? Why do they behave irrational, why do they love to be punished by women in leather? Why? I have no idea.

But I think that’s the human condition. We have to live with that. But please. Please not in a professional environment.

Python is not professional.

LuaJIT is."

Quote from the ""Zen"" of Python (aka import this):
< "There should be one-- and preferably only one --obvious way to do it."
Python doesn't have switch statement (which is the most beautiful statement) but it has 3 ways to do format strings (f-strings, str.format() and "old style" string formatting with % like in C. there are also Template strings). Kek, is this the "Pythonic" way of doing things?? Poothon has global interpreter lock (https://python.land/python-concurrency/the-python-gil) and a bad package manager (or like 2-3 of them, heh. Also, should I use virtualenv or conda???). 
And the WTF is this!?! Python even has trouble with simple math: https://wiki.tcl-lang.org/page/Python (tl;dr try 1 // 0.2 in Python. Also: https://github.com/python/cpython/issues/71650). There are even more things: https://gist.github.com/RobertAKARobin/a1cba47d62c009a378121398cc5477ea   And everyone knows that Python has ugly syntax that dictates how you are allowed to use whitespace and the python 2\python 3 split...

It's pretty clear that Python was never intended to be used for serious applications (instead it was made for simple scripts). It's crazy how ((( Python ))) is used for data science or machine learning... The only reason why Python is popular is that Goolag promoted it before they invented Go and because Python was memed as easy language (it is easy but so are most other scripting languages).

But that's it. I'm taking the Lua PIL: https://www.lua.org/pil/contents.html  (also check out https://luarocks.org/ and LuaJIT).
For awhile I was thinking about learning Free Pascal but then I came back to my senses.

k, but how do I learn lua? 
Does it even have any graphic libraries besides love2d?
Replies: >>6113
It's not harder than on any other platform. I can compress with that. I just wish I knew the arguments. I experimented a little and found quality arguments that work but I'm still as clueless as before on how to tell it to do something like preset slow, so I don't get a realtime shit thrown at the disk.
>Python doesn't have switch statement
They added it in 3.10 it seems. I hate Python too.
>But that's it. I'm taking the Lua PIL
Lua is good for extending programs but on its own you can't make much in it. It doesn't even portably provide system interfaces for listing files, so you have to call into a program that lists files available on the platform for every single platform you want your script to be compatible with.
I recommend TCL for scripts that do shit on their own.
Love2D is not a library. It's a game engine extended with Lua. Their are plenty of engines and programs that feature Lua extensions. How much abilities to interface with the program the Lua scripts have, depends on how much the C/++ code makes available to them.
Lua is fairly easy to learn. Here's the manual:  http://www.lua.org/manual/5.4/manual.html
