12:09 js hop
12:09 js who is admin of bugzilla ?
12:10 paul js : chris, afaik
12:11 js ok paul :)
12:19 hdl kados ?
12:19 dewey kados is just a bit tied up
12:40 kados hdl: I'm here now
12:40 kados paul: you around?
12:40 hdl Did you see the problem with ?
12:41 paul hi kados.
12:41 kados paul: to make the fix you are proposing I'd suggest sending a mail to perl4lib with a test case proving the problem, and show how the patch fixes it
12:41 paul (working on circ code cleaning this afternoon)
12:41 kados paul++
12:41 paul already done, some months ago.
12:42 paul the problem is trivial & it's clearly a typo in the code
12:42 paul ne instead of eq
12:43 kados did you send to Ed or to perl4lib because Ed hasn't worked on M:F::X for some time
12:43 kados Mike Rylander is the one who has taken over
12:43 kados sec, phone
12:45 paul 'morning owen
12:47 kados back
12:49 kados paul: .
12:49 kados $parser->{ Handler }{ toMARC8 } = (lc($format) ne 'unimarc' && $enc
12:49 kados && lc($enc) =/^utf-?8$/o) ? 0 : 1;
12:50 kados paul: I can never remember the syntax for the shortcut if statement ?
12:50 paul test?true:false maybe ?
12:51 paul in this case :  (lc($format) ne 'unimarc' && $enc&& lc($enc) =/^utf-?8$/o) is the test
12:51 paul (the strangeness of the test being that you set 0 if true and 1 if false.
12:52 paul I bet Ed would not have made the typo with a test resulting in test?1:0;
12:52 paul this one says : "if we are not unimarc AND have $enc set and it contains utf8 => no need to do MARC8 stuff
12:53 paul that is wrong.
12:53 kados right
12:53 paul because if we are unimarc, we have nothing to do with MARC8 ;-)
12:54 kados but it says 'if we are not unimarc'
12:54 kados not 'if we are unimarc'
12:55 paul for us, lc($format) ne 'unimarc' is FALSE.
12:55 paul then the test is FALSE && anything && anything = FALSE
12:56 paul => we set MARC8 flag to 1
12:56 kados ok
12:56 paul making a MARC8 => utf8 char decoding.
12:56 paul which is silly ;-)
12:56 paul (we get àe instead of ê for example)
12:56 paul (iirc)
12:57 paul (i'm utf8 on this channel now, in case you'd got some diacritics problems)
12:57 kados (I am utf8 too, no probs ;-))
12:59 kados paul: ok, fixed in CVS
12:59 paul 1000 thx
12:59 kados paul: I will do a release of the CPAN today
13:00 paul 10000 thx then ;-)
13:08 kados paul: uploaded to CPAN
13:08 kados paul: temporarily available from
13:12 kados done
13:12 kados paul: a long process for a one character bugfix :-)
13:12 kados paul: probably why no-one has done it before today :-)
13:52 kados paul: !!
13:52 kados paul: did you see Mike Rylander's response?
13:52 kados paul: in perl4lib?
13:54 kados paul: I need to leave
13:54 kados paul: but it would be good if you could respond to Mike
13:54 paul i'll answer on perl4lib
13:54 kados thx
16:58 kyle hey all
09:51 sinantena hello are there any linux users here?
10:11 sinantena i keep gettina a premature end of script headers error
