Thanks for clearing that up. In any case, Laurent has also suggested the
example to use with the quickscript, so I have added both of you to the
contributors section of RN.

Thanks for your contributions,

I was thinking about this until I saw Jon's suggestion - specific to
binaryen bindings.

However, why would you use the C API (which seems to be mostly focused
on BC)? My approach would be to wrap the function in C, redirect stdout
using dup2 to a file and bind that wrapper in racket, read from the file
and send to `current-output-port`.

Kind regards,

Paulo Matos

Good point and nice catch.

Although it doesn't solve the issue with racket it does provide a way
out for me to create a safe binding for this function that works within
Racket.

[racket-users] Redirecting shared lib stdout

2021-05-12 Thread Paulo Matos
Hi,

I have a shared library for which I am creating some bindings:
https://github.com/pmatos/racket-binaryen

There's a function BinaryenModulePrint that prints a WebAssembly module
to stdout.

When I wrap it in racket, if I do something like:
(define mod ...)
(with-output-to-string (lambda () (BinaryenModulePrint mod)))

The return value will be "" and it will still print the module to
stdout. I understand! However, I don't know how to solve it in Racket.

In C, things seem easier because I have access to dup2 and pipe in case
I need to redirect things, however in Racket all my attempts have
failed.

I have created the simple example:
```hello.c
#include 

void hello(void) {
  printf("hello world!\n");
}
```

Compile with `gcc -shared -o hello.so hello.c`.

Then:
```hello.rkt
#lang racket/base

(require racket/port
 ffi/unsafe
 ffi/unsafe/define)

(define libhello (ffi-lib "/home/pmatos/dev/tmp/ffi-hello-world/hello.so"))
(define-ffi-definer define-hello libhello)
(define-hello hello (_fun -> _void))
(with-output-to-string hello)
```

Here's the issue! In C, I can do something like:
```hello-fix.c
#include 
#include 
#include 
#include 

extern void hello(void);

int main(void) {
  int filefd = open("test.txt", O_WRONLY|O_CREAT, 0666);
  dup2(filefd, fileno(stdout));
  hello();
  
  return 0;
}
```
Compile with `gcc -o hello hello.c hello-fix.c`

This will, send the output of hello() to a file. Now, in racket
preferably I want to connect what is sent to raw stdout, fd 1, to
current-output-port.

My thought was that I could create a dup2 ffi binding, and use
unsafe-port->file-descriptor to install the racket pipe file descriptor
in stdout using the dup2 ffi binding but it doesn't work.

And it doesn't work because the unsafe-port->file-descriptor returns #f,
even though port-waiting-peer? return #f as well (which sort of hints
that maybe the documentation of unsafe-port->file-descriptor is
incomplete.

The start of my attempt would look like this:

```hello.rkt
#lang racket/base

(require racket/port
 ffi/unsafe
 ffi/unsafe/define
 ffi/unsafe/port)

(define libhello (ffi-lib "/home/pmatos/dev/tmp/ffi-hello-world/hello.so"))

(define-ffi-definer define-libc (ffi-lib #f))
(define-ffi-definer define-hello libhello)

(define-libc dup2 (_fun _int _int -> _int))
(define-hello hello (_fun -> _void))

(define-values (in out) (make-pipe))

;; FAILS because (unsafe-port-> ...) return #f
(dup2 (unsafe-port->file-descriptor out) 1)

;;...
;; connect the other end of the port to current-output-port
;; and use a thread to copy-port 
```

Surely there must be a better way than this and I would be surprised if
there isn't already something out there in a library but I haven't found
anything yet. Any help here would be great.

Thanks,

Hi again,

A problem with the datasets meant that in the first few hours after 
publishing, the plots reflected incorrect values. This is now fixed. Thanks 
to Sorawee for noticing and pointing it out to me.

Happy new year everyone,

It is with great joy that I publish the first issue of the year.
Issue 44: https://racket-news.com/2021/01/racket-news-issue-44.html

That's our longest issue ever. Not everything could be included as I always 
try the issues to be quick to read (over a coffee break) but this one might 
need an extra long coffee.

Lets make 2021 the year of Racket! Up, Up, and Away!

We hope the support for this to be imminent. As far as I understand the
core team is still missing the required hardware to fix the issues that
are cropping up.

Oh my ... so, due to issues with RN CI [1], issue 41 that was supposed to 
be out yesterday only came out today.
But today Racket 7.9 was released, which I left out of RN 41 yesterday. I 
will therefore add the release of Racket 7.9 to issue 41 post-publication.

Sorry for this.

Sorry for this. As mentioned elsewhere in this thread this was already fixed. 
It seemed
gitlab was momentarily down.

There are two alternatives to read the news:
1. Register for the newsletter in https://racket-news.com and you'll get
the issue by email.
2. Each time I upload a new issue, I archive it using the web archiver,
therefore from the moment an issue is published, even if gitlab is down,
the issue is accessible here:
https://web.archive.org/web/20200707081858/https://racket-news.com/2020/07/racket-news-issue-34.html

I probably should mention that publicly.

Work on this is ongoing - joint work with Jesse Alama. We have two ports

I am slowly finishing other items of work that was doing in parallel to

I always thought Racket to be a great basis for a CI system. Not only 
because ... well, Racket but because each system necessarily needs a way to 
describe pipelines and most use some sort of yaml. With Racket you could 
potentially design something much closer to what a CI description language 
needs (dreaming now about a #lang ci) while remaining tightly integrated 
with the remainder of the system. Also, the fact that racket supports so 
many platforms would provide an advantage over designing it in other 
languages.

I am definitely not an expert in web programming in Racket or in general 
but if I can provide any insights into CI, feel free to reach out.

Sage, correct me if I misunderstood but I think Xu wants to build a CI 
system in Racket (like buildbot or CircleCI)- not necessarily a CI system 
for Racket. So his work would be orthogonal to ours.

Since nobody has gotten back to you yet - what is this CentOS cloud 
computers? 
However, let me assume the problem is not centos or cloud computing but 
instead that you are trying to run a pre-compiled racket version on an OS 
with an old glibc. 
Well, you can build your own racket there for your current libc version - 
have you tried that? Did you face any problems?

Hi Sage,

Thanks for this effort.
I have a large machine - currently used for Racket CI, which could be used 
for running these tests as well. A separate machine specifically for 
benchmarking is available as well. 
Give me a pvt. shout to arrange this.

Hi,

I don't have many plans at this moment. I feel that Greg did a great job
with Frog and I had further things[1] I wanted to change so I forked it.
I am happy to maintain it and receive PRs.

Honestly, I didn't check other forks - probably should have.

I would like to great something that's useful for as many people as
possible and continue Frog's legacy of providing a really useful tool
for the Racket community.

So, long story short - send me your PRs, feature requests, etc. I will
see what I can do. Contributors welcome!

[1] two things at this point - integration with polyglot and remote
UNLINKED and make that the behaviour of DRAFT instead

I should quickly mention gitlab as well then, since it wasn't mentioned
already. You can use the hosted version in Gitlab for free (even for
private repos) - or pay for versions with more project management features.

Alternatively you can also self-host. Migration from github to gitlab is
pretty trivial.

I however, still really like GitHub and although I would take into
consideration Neil's comments earlier there's no reason to panic. There
are a multitude of services out there to move to if need be. My opinion
is to keep using the great service github offers for now to the fullest
and worry about migration if necessary.

Thanks for the reference to your tree notation work.

[racket-users] Compiling into Linklets

2019-07-02 Thread 'Paulo Matos' via Racket Users
-vector*-ref data 0)
'0
(unsafe-vector*-ref data 1)
(unsafe-vector*-ref data 2)
(unsafe-vector*-ref data 3

This linklet does not contain the definition of factorial. This is
probably my bad assumption but I thought I would get a linklet directory
with everything in the original application. Is there a current way to
do this?

Or the solution is to go manually through the requires in the original
source and run the linklet extraction for each of them?

I see the segfault in 7.1 but not in 7.2 or 7.3. Then I run it under
valgrind and I see it in all the versions. :)
It's there, but sometimes hiding.

You cannot use #lang racket if you want to run your script in Chez,
because Chez doesn't know what that means. I assume that this
chez-runner was an experiment and it lacks communication with the
interactions window.

My apologies but can't help you further, at this point, you have to open
an issue at:

Re: [racket-users] Re: chez-runner plugin

2019-05-22 Thread 'Paulo Matos' via Racket Users
I am talking without running it or even having used that plugin but it
looks like it's passing the definitions you have in your window but Chez
doesn't know `#l` in line one. I imagine you have something like `#lang
racket`?

Why not just use Racket then? Also, are you sure you want to run Chez
like that or are you really after Racket-on-Chez which is something
completely different?

Re: [racket-users] chez-runner plugin

2019-05-22 Thread 'Paulo Matos' via Racket Users
Hi,

It seems you are referring to this DrRacket plugin:
https://github.com/Syntacticlosure/chez-runner

Optimally Syntacticlosure should be able to help a lot more than I can
and if what I say doesn't make sense, I suggest you open an issue with
your question at :
https://github.com/Syntacticlosure/chez-runner/issues

However, I quickly glanced at the code and it seems it's a plugin for
DrRacket that simply calls `scheme --script` with what you have in the
definitions once you click the button `Run Chez`.
I suggest you start DrRacket, look for the button. If it's not there,
report an issue using the link above.

Paulo

Awesome! I just skimmed the paper and the enumeration part brought
memories of a technique we developed for unbounded model checking almost
a decade ago.

Your figure 3 is not too far from our figures 4 and 5 on page 9 of:
https://www.researchgate.net/publication/225399880_A_Lazy_Unbounded_Model_Checker_for_Event-B

Also, I should point out that all this Lazy Unbounded Model Checking
research was developed in the good old PLT Scheme. :)

Should check if the thing still runs in todays Racket...

Now I should really grab a coffee and read your paper properly!

Re: [racket-users] Generate really large random numbers in Racket

Check the math library by Neil Toronto:
https://docs.racket-lang.org/math/base.html?q=random#%28part._.Random_.Number_.Generation%29

(random-natural k) → Natural

  k : Integer

Returns a random natural number less than k, which must be positive. Use
(random-natural k) instead of (random k) when k could be larger than
4294967087.

Sure! That's great. I will add it to the submissions for issue 5 or 6.

We could do that but I have been using project spotlight in the broader
sense of standalone project and/or lang. For example, I featured the
rosette #lang a couple of issues ago.

I can obviously have one more section but the reason I would prefer not
to is because at about ~26 issues per year, I would like to have good
content for a long time coming, if you know what I mean. :)

Therefore I would prefer to schedule those great langs in the project
spotlight for issues up ahead. What do you think?

is there. You should see now a button in green saying 'Create New Pull
Request'.

Then it should show something like:

racket/racket master <- MarcKaufmann/racket patch-1

on top. Press create pull request and it will create a pull request in
racket/racket for master, based on your patch-1 branch changes.

I would then expect to see a PR from you here:
https://github.com/racket/racket/pulls

In general you should not need to choose a branch to commit to because
github will automatically name it patch-N. Then you create a PR to merge
to master.

If really have to choose a branch to commit your change to in your fork,
select a new branch. I name them - so it could be
mkaufmann-scribblings-typo-fix. Then when you select the branch to merge
to, yes, it's master.

You mean scribblings in the racket repo?
I am asking because I can't see a PR there from you.

Where the documentation is, depends on where the typo is. Is it in the
Guide, Reference, somewhere else?

Go to https://github.com/racket/racket
then search for the typo in the github search box and select 'in this
repository'.

Found it, great? No? Maybe the docs are somewhere else. Does it belong
to one of the libraries in pkgs.racket-lang.org? To scribble?

Once you found it, the easiest thing for a typo is to find the file in
github, then edit straight in github. It will automatically fork the
project. Then you can edit the file, fixing the typo and commit. Open PR
straight after that. Someone will come and merge the PR. :) If you need
step-by-step help feel free to pvt me in Slack.

Enjoy the ultimate pleasure of committing to the racket repo, go get
that chocolate bar you deserve!

True, they are large projects... maybe even facilitated by corporate
backing but someone got them started and they probably got started
without corporate backing. I would say that you should do it if you are
motivated to do it for fun or if you need it. Start small, maybe create
just a very small subset of bindings that solve a specific problem.
Document it, publicize it, allow people to contribute. Maybe one day,
corporate backing will come.


Good luck!

[racket-users] Racket News - Issue 2

2019-02-15 Thread 'Paulo Matos' via Racket Users
I have just published Issue 2 at

http://racket-news.com/2019/02/racket-news-issue-2.html


I would have loved to send a text version to the mailing list but with
code and images to render I haven't found a way to do this properly yet.
I have tried scribble --text and pandoc but both had shortcomings.

For now, please refer to the web address. If you have suggestions please
let me know.

Grab a coffee and enjoy!
