COMPLETION Report / Perl 6 IO TPF Grant

This document is the May, 2017 progress report for TPF Standardization, Test Coverage, and Documentation of Perl 6 I/O Routines grant. I believe I reasonably satisfied the goals of the grant and consider it completed. This is the final report and may reference some of the work/commits previously mentioned in monthly reports.

Thank You!

I'd like to thank all the donors that support The Perl Foundation who made this grant possible. It was a wonderful learning experience for me, and it brings me joy to look back and see Perl 6 improved due to this grant.

Thank You!

Completeness Criteria

Here are the original completeness criteria (in bold) that are listed on the original grant proposal and my comments on their status:

  • rakudo repository will contain the IO Action Plan document and it will be fully implemented. The promised document exists. It's fully implemented except for three items that I listed on the IO Action Plan, but which are currently a bit beyond my skill level to implement. I hope to do them eventually, but outside the scope of this grant. They are:
    • IO::Handle's Closed status. My original proposal would cause some perfomance issues, so it was decided to improve MoarVM errors instead.
    • Optimize multiple stat calls. This involves creating a new nqp op, with code for it implemented in MoarVM and JVM backends.
    • Use typed exceptions instead of X::AdHoc. I made typed exceptions be thrown whereever I could. The rest require VM-level exceptions and is on the same level as the handle closed status issue (first item above).
  • All of the I/O routines will have tests in roast and documented on docs.perl6.org. If any of the currently implemented but unspecced routines are decided against being included in Perl 6 Language, their implementation will no longer be available in Rakudo. To the best of my knowledge, this is completed in full.
  • The test coverage tool will report all I/O routines as covered and the information will be visible on perl6.wtf (Perl 6's Wonderful Test Files) website. Note: due to current experimental status of the coverage tool, its report may still show some lines or conditionals untested despite them actually being tested; however, it will show the lines where routines' names are specified as covered. To the best of my knowledge, all IO routines currently have tests covering them. Due to its experimental status, the coverage tool shows some attributes as uncovered. I did manually verify all the attributes/routines whose names the tool shows as uncovered contain tests for them. One exception is IO::Notification type (and IO::Path.watch method). While it has full coverage for OSX operating system, it lacks it for other OSes. I tried writing some tests for it, but it looks like the behaviour of the nqp op handling these is broken on Linux and the class needs more work.

Extra Deliverables

I produced these extra deliverables while working on the grant:

  • The Definitive I/O Guide. Providing tutorial-like documentation for Perl 6's I/O, including documenting some of the bad practices I noticed in the ecosystem (and even a Perl 6 book!) and the correct way to perform those tasks. (N.B. as I write this report, the guide could still use a few extra sections to be considered "The Definitive"; I'll write them in upcoming weeks)
  • Performance improvements. I made 23 performance-enhancing commits, with many commits making things more than 200% faster, with highest improvement making a routine 6300% faster.
  • Trait::IO module. Provides does auto-close pseudo-trait to simplify closing of IO handles.
  • IO::Path::ChildSecure module. Due to large ecosystem usage, IO::Path.child was left as is until 6.d language, at which point it will be made secure (as outlined in the IO Plan). This module provides the secure version in the mean time.
  • IO::Dir module. Provides IO::Path.dir-like functionality, with ability to close open directory without needing to fully exhaust the returned Seq.
  • Die module. Implements Perl-5-like behaviour for &die routine.
  • The "Map of Perl 6 Routines" (or rather the "table") is available on map.perl6.party with its code in perl6/routine-map repo. In near future, I plan to use it to identify incorrect or incomplete entries in our documentation

In addition, I plan to complete these modules some time in the future; the ideas for them were birthed while working on the grant: - NL module. Targeted for use in one liners, the module will provide $*NL dynvar that behaves like Perl 5's $. variable (providing current $*ARGFILES's file's line number). Its implementation became possible thanks to newly-implemented IO::CatHandle type - FastIO module. A re-imagination of core IO, the biggest part of which will be the removal of (user-exposed) use of IO::Spec::* types and $*SPEC variable, which—it is believed—will provide improved performance over core IO. The module is a prototype for some of the proposals that were made during the IO grant and if it offers significant improvements over core IO, its ideas will be used by core IO in future language versions.

Work Performed in May

For the work done in May, many of my commits went into going through the IO routine list, and adding missing tests and documentation, along with fixing bugs (and reporting new ones I found).

The major work was implementation of the IO::CatHandle class that fixed all of the bugs and NYIs with the $*ARGFILES. This work saw the addition of 372 lines of code, 800 lines of tests and 793 lines of documentation.

Work by Other Core Members

jnthn++ completed the handle encoding refactor that will eventually let us get rid of using libuv for syncronous IO and, more importantly, allow us to support user-defined encoders/decoders.

Along with fixing a bunch of bugs, this work altered the performance landscape for IO operations (i.e. some operations may now be a bit faster, others a bit slower), though overall the performance appeared to stay the same.

Tickets Fixed
