Just foxing about.
...yeah, you're right. I think I'm just used to deriving
REPORTED RESOLVED FIXED
Sorry for the long delay, apparently I don't get emailed when tickets happen here... Need to fix that.
It's a nice idea. I'm not sure it's something that should be added though. It's a fair amount of extra API for a fairly small feature, it's a feature that isn't going to be used super commonly, and a user can write their own wrapper to choose the right rand size based on pointer width pretty easily. So I like it, but in the interests of minimalism I don't see a compelling reason for
oorandomto include it.
Aha, thank you! I will have a fix published soon.
Above all, do no harm.
See https://lobste.rs/s/6bphbw/fennel_programming_language_rationale . We have some of this but it's mostly in the form of loose notes in a couple different places. The basic idea is "be the C to Rust's C++", but "how" is going to need a lot of work.
This can probably be put off until we can actually add features again though.
