06:06:32[Saint]It does.

06:07:17JdGordonsdk version sillyness?
06:07:54[Saint]No. It shouldn't be.
06:08:11[Saint]Perhaps launcher silliness.
06:08:56[Saint]force close the launcher and check then.
06:09:58JdGordonmeh, not a big deal
06:10:14[Saint]they fuck shit up pretty bad anyway.
06:10:38[Saint]Its very easy to get RaaA into some crazy-ass states poking at playback via the widgits.
06:11:27JdGordonif i could trigger it I could try to fix it :p
06:13:35[Saint]it needs a debug/logf build with additional logging sprinkled around methinks.
06:14:02[Saint]I've tried catching it in ADB, and I can trigger it most times, but ADB shows nothing out of the ordinary whatsoever.
06:14:27[Saint]s/adb/logcat, via adb/
06:14:47[Saint]Roughly my thoughts.
06:15:02[Saint]pixelma can trigger it reasonably reliably too.
06:15:26[Saint]But I'm unsure if her device presents anything interesting via logcat to state what it is that's falling over.
06:15:57[Saint]kugel hasn't been able to trigger it to my knowledge.
06:16:14[Saint]Which is couldn;t possibly be that easy. It never is.

07:45:09copperfor detecting which color variant of my themes is being used
07:45:36JdGordondifferent coloured images?
07:45:49copperdifferent anything
07:46:12copperdisplaying different images, different background colors, different titles
07:47:00coppermy current fix is to test for colors twice, in lowercase and in uppercase
07:47:36coppernote that when testing for HEX colors which don't contain a letter, I have to add 1 to the number and test it as a number, because of the %?if() bug
07:48:37copper%?if(%ss(0, 6, %St(background color), number), =, 737174)<true when color is 737173|false>
07:48:57copper%?if(%St(background color), =, 737173) doesn't work
07:49:05copper%?if(%St(background color), =, 737174) doesn't work either

07:52:13kugelJdGordon: buflib_shrink() shouldnt be a noop
07:52:55*JdGordon vomits
07:53:14kugelsome code does "opportunistic alloc", it allocates a lot (all RAM) and then shrinks itself after some time when the actual memory needed is determined
07:53:38JdGordonah, ok
07:54:22kugelso its not just for the audio buffer
07:54:43kugelthough buflib_shrink on malloc() is pita
07:54:48coppergevaerts: I don't understand why the casing is different on the sim and on the actual device?
07:55:09JdGordoncopper: sim uses libc printf()
07:55:30JdGordontarget uses our printf which is a cut down version
07:55:53copperI think this is the first time where I find a difference between the sim and the device
08:00:02[Saint]That seems terribly failure prone.
08:00:25[Saint]Do you test if the hex is within a given range, or check for specific values?
08:00:35copperme? Specific values.
08:00:35[Saint]If the latter...eeek.
08:00:42copperwhy eek?
08:00:48***Saving seen data "./dancer.seen"
08:01:05[Saint]I mean, there's only...what, 64 million possible iterations...
08:01:14copperI'm only trying to identify my own color presets with certainty
08:01:31[Saint]Ah. Right. That makes more sense.
08:01:41[Saint]Average Joe can get fucked.
08:01:50copperI have a generic case that works with all other possible colors
08:02:58copperer, when I say "my own color presets", I mean the color presets that I ship with the themes

08:04:15copper.cfg files that the user can easily switch to without fiddling with the color picker
08:04:55[Saint]Cute. Technically the theme site should reject that.
08:05:07copperit currently rejects extra cfg files yes
08:05:16copperthough I submitted a patch for it to accept those
08:05:24copperit's on gerrit
08:06:03copperso for now the extra cfg files are renamed as .txt files - other theme authors have been doing the same for a while
08:06:22copper(the zip files that I host myself contain the original cfg files)
08:07:59[Saint]Also, welcome to the club. The elite few that have managed to generate syntax so hideous it makes JdGordon run away crying.
08:08:17JdGordonits really not that hard tbh
08:09:45copperit's not so much hideous syntax, as the same simple syntax repeated a dozen times!
08:10:00copperwell, except for the %?if() bug workaround
08:10:13copperwith the use of %ss to cast the value as an int
08:10:24JdGordonits really not a %if() bug.. its the way conditionals are done
08:10:47JdGordoncant you just compare as strings?
08:10:52[Saint]0 base vs. 1 base?
08:10:52coppernope, doesn't work
08:11:23[Saint]I've noticed that's inconsistent in a few places.
08:11:26coppercomparing as strings only works when there's a letter in the hex value
08:11:28[Saint]Is that the issue?
08:12:01[Saint]Some items return 0 as the first tuple, others 1.
08:12:30[Saint]I imagine that might make life difficult.
08:13:01[Saint]I haven't don't anything particularly crazy with if in an age myself.
08:13:53copper%?if(%St(background color), =, 737173)<true|false>
08:13:58copperalways returns false no matter what
08:14:04copper%?if(%St(background color), =, 737174)<true|false>
08:14:05copperthat too
08:14:19coppernothing works unless I use %ss() here to cast it as an int
08:14:27JdGordonwould you like a tag to force the number to a string which should fix %if()?
08:14:31JdGordonim just checking the code now
08:14:42copperthat would work I guess
08:15:26copperI think that should be a parameter for %?if()
08:15:50copper%?if(%St(background color), =, 737173, string)<true|false>
08:15:54coppersomething like that
08:16:16JdGordonadding a tag i think will be easier
08:16:33[Saint]But make for much nastier syntax.
08:16:58[Saint]I kinda agree it should be an if param.
08:17:07[Saint]If possible, of course.
08:17:39kugelgevaerts: why not fix our sprintf?
08:17:40copperadding a parameter to %?if() wouldn't break existing code, I think?
08:18:24JdGordonno, but %if() already takes an optional int param, so adding an optional string is a huge PITA to not break things
08:18:44copperit does?
08:19:12[Saint]^ this
08:19:22copperit's not on the Wiki, unless I'm blind
08:19:33JdGordonapparently! :p
08:19:34copperyou mean "option count"?
08:19:38JdGordonim going from the code
08:19:43copperah ok
08:19:57JdGordonactually it might not be so hard to fix
08:20:18kugelwhat test does actually work?

08:21:48coppernothing else works
08:21:57JdGordonthats not completly true!
08:22:19[Saint]%if(%xx,=,foo)<foo|bar|baz> works fine
08:22:28[Saint]I use it all the time.
08:22:51copperyou understand why that's not pratical when testing for colors :)
08:23:16[Saint]Right. Just picking apart the absurd claim that nothing works.
08:23:28copperoh come on, you know what I meant
08:23:43[Saint]At least two of us didn't.
08:23:44copperwe've been talking about the specific case of a hex color value with only numbers in it
08:24:46kugelcopper: so if the color contains letters you don't need %ss?
08:25:19kugel%?if(%St(background color), =, fefefe)<true when color is fefefe|false> ?
08:25:40coppertrue, except I have to do that test twice, first in lowercase, second in uppercase
08:26:01kugelbecause if the sim inconsistency?
08:26:32copperyes (and I don't know if all actual devices report hex values in uppercase, or just the iPod Classic and some other devices)
08:26:49kugelthe devices should be all the same
08:26:58[Saint]It should be the same for all devices.
08:27:00copperbut since I use the sim to take screenshots, I need to test for both anyway
08:27:15kugelI think we can fix that
08:27:37[Saint]Does screenshot on device not function?
08:27:43[Saint]I seem to recall it does
08:27:55[Saint](Are you aware of it?)
08:27:58copper1) I don't know how to take screenshots on the actual device
08:28:18copper2) it would be a lot more cumbersome to take screenshots on the device and copy them over USB every time)
08:28:41[Saint]Well...not really, since the trigger is plugging USB.
08:28:45JdGordonif the only issue is screenshots oyu could also just force that %if() to whatever you want
08:28:57[Saint]Also that.
08:29:17copperit's not just screenshots
08:29:23copperit's testing themes in the sim
08:29:25JdGordonI understand :)
08:29:28coppermaking sure stuff works
08:29:59copperif I have to test the stuff on the device every time, the point of the sim is moot
08:30:33[Saint]Regarding screenshots on device, the trigger to capture the screenshot is plugging USB. so transfer of said image(s) isn't terribly inconvenient.
08:30:45[Saint]About as inconvenient as launching the Sim.
08:32:29[Saint]The Sim offers the benefit of verbose debugging, but that feature isn't as useful as it could be...

10:46:47copperneeded and simply useful
10:48:05copperJdGordon: %?number() would be useful when testing for a font size, which is taken from a string (the font's filename)
10:48:14JdGordonah hmm... gevaerts, what do you tihnk about fixing %x/%X?
10:48:41copper%?number() and %?string() would fix the %?if() bug without breaking anything
10:49:10JdGordonI think fixing it will make alot of our printfs less readable (everything seems to use %x assuming uppercase)
10:49:12copperthey would also improve readability, being fully explicit about what is being tested and how

10:54:14copperwhy the + 1?
10:54:25gevaertsTo make conditionals work
10:54:36gevaertsWhich I hope *nobody* will ever use with colours :)
10:54:51copperwell I've run into the problem before when testing for font size
10:54:59copperthat's when I filed the bug report
10:55:45JdGordonadding the cast tags is trivial
10:57:25gevaertsWhat would those do? Subtract one?
10:58:50copperhe only mentionned a "cast to string" tag
10:59:07copperbut I guess a "cast to number" that subtracts one would work too?
10:59:31gevaertsThat's the point! I don't think it does :)
11:00:10copper%cast(value, string) and %cast(value, number)?
11:00:41gevaertsI mean, not *all* numbers get the +1, e.g. all the "traditional" conditional cases such as e.g. charging state
11:01:06gevaertsSo you'd still have to know where exactly you need the cast
11:01:30coppernot with %number() :)
11:01:39gevaertsWhy not?
11:02:25copperbecause that would always test for the exact value contained in the variable

11:02:43copperwithout adding or subtracting one

11:02:54copperthat's the problem with %?if(), but not with %?number()
11:03:28gevaertscopper: It's not the if code that does the adding. It's the token evaluation code
11:03:48gevaertsSo changing that is a fairly invasive thing
11:03:55gevaertsI think

11:04:13copperdoesn't matter if some vars start at 1 or 0
11:04:26copperit only matters that we can test for their actual value
11:04:34gevaertsWhat *is* their actual value?
11:04:45copperwhatever %St(var) displays
11:04:50gevaertsFor settings that's clear, but for e.g. those battery states?
11:05:08copper09:04:14 UTC <copper> doesn't matter if some vars start at 1 or 0
11:05:16gevaertsWhy not?
11:05:28gevaertsIt does matter for your fontsizes, apparently...
11:05:42copperbecause if a var starts at 0, I'll just test for 0
11:05:51copperif a var starts at 1, I'll just test for 1
11:06:21copperunless it is me who's missing something?
11:06:56*JdGordon cant push to git :(
11:07:32gevaertsSo would you accept that %number(%pe) and %pe give different answers?
11:07:43JdGordonthey wont
11:07:54JdGordonim not sure %number makes any sense
11:08:21coppernote that %ss() alrady has a "number" argument
11:09:01copperthe problem is not what variables contain
11:09:04copperthe problem is %?if()
11:09:32gevaertsJdGordon: "ssh -p 29418" doesn't work?
11:09:47copperwhatever variables contain, if I can test for their exact content, there's no problem
11:10:48copperI just don't want my code to read "%?if(x, =, 3><then x = 4|false>"
11:11:01copper"%?if(x, =, 3><then x = 2|false>"
11:11:24gevaertsThe problem is "their exact content"
11:12:22copperI think I see what you mean
11:12:39gevaertsI fully understand what you're asking and why, but I don't see a simple easy patch to give you that
11:13:18copperenumerations are one thing
11:13:28gevaertsWhere the skin engine currently has *one* numeric value for each tag (which is tuned for conditionals), it would need either two or a flag that says to subtract one again
11:13:30copperbut colors and number strings are not enumerations
11:14:01gevaertsSo unless I'm missing things, someone needs to go over *all* tags that can provide number-like stuff and fix them
11:14:15gevaertsnumber strings can be anything
11:14:44gevaertsColours, I agree, but I could see people use number strings coming from %ss as enumerations
11:14:56copper%ss(0, 2, %St(font), number) is not "a tag"

11:16:10copperI don't have the knowledge to help more than that on the subject, I think
11:16:45copperI remain convinced that the problem is with %?if() trying to deal with both number values and enumerations
11:17:04copperthis is all very confusing.

16:03:27copperI'm not doing anything fancy
16:03:55copperI'm exactly testing the values of tags, except I can't make the simplest thing work without cheating
16:04:32[Saint]It was initially added to handle cases like "%?if(%mp,=,1)<stopped>, etc.
16:04:51[Saint]Simple comparisons of the returned value from conditional tags.
16:05:51copperthe manual doesn't read that way
16:06:07[Saint]The manual us wrong and vague in a lot of places.
16:06:24[Saint]I specifically requested this tag. I was there. ;)
16:06:34copperokay :)

16:08:33*copper giggles
16:09:10[Saint]This is definitely a case I didn't have in mind at the time I thought it useful.
16:09:31[Saint]It was primarily so you didn't need to construct gargantuan conditional statements.
16:10:05[Saint]%?pv<||||||||||||||||||||||||||||foo>, etc.
16:10:29copper"let's use those tags in such ugly ways that I'll pass out"

16:11:20[Saint]We've come a long way.
16:11:33[Saint]When I started we didn't have viewports.
16:11:40[Saint]Or the ui viewport.
16:11:58[Saint]Or about 50% of the fun tags we have now...
16:12:07copperI don't want to know what Rockbox was like back then!
16:12:27copperI think I probably got into it right about the right time
16:12:28[Saint]We used to do text spacing with newlines and whitespace.
16:12:29pixelmawell, I find copper's use case not very "far outside", especially not the font size one. Just because another, simpler use case helped inventing the tag shouldn't be the reason to neglect others (just saying as it sounds this way to me, [Saint])
16:13:23coppereven the font size is hackish
16:13:34[Saint]Nor do I think it should exclude the use case
16:13:34copperwon't work if the font file doesn't start with the correct number

16:14:29copperassuming users won't install their own custom font with a non-standard filename
16:14:57[Saint]Fwiw I don't think anyone really saw using if and ss coming either...
16:15:05[Saint]So that kinda adds to the fun.
16:15:12copperthe more glaring problem is the inability to properly for the value of tags that are made entirely of numbers, like colors
16:15:25copperproperly test*

16:20:03[Saint]I'm probably directly responsible for at least half a dozen tags from running into similar situations
16:20:49copperI wouldn't run into this sort of problems if the theme engine didn't have those capabilities
16:21:08copperI just wouldn't be doing what I'm doing

16:21:43[Saint]You'd likely do what I did "hey, it would be awesome if I could..."
16:22:25[Saint]One of my favorite requests was skin variabkes
16:22:36[Saint]*variables, even
16:22:47[Saint]They're very fun to play with.
16:24:09[Saint](Touchscreen area that will set, increment, or decrement an arbitrary variable and a tag to query the value)
16:24:54[Saint]Oh, and the timeout for detecting since when a touch area was last pressed.
16:25:37[Saint]...the the touch area that does nothing, which I needed in addition to variables
16:25:46[Saint]*and the
16:27:25[Saint]With your style and talent, copper, I really think you'd have a lot of fun targeting large screened touchscreen targets.
