Unintentional description of a interpreter spotted on birdsite: “If I’m reading and I see an open-parenthesis symbol I stop reading right away and I do not start again until I get to a close-parenthesis symbol. There’s no way I’m reading that shit”

Was bummed to discover that ’s cat command didn’t support the - argument to include standard input among the file args because that’s how jonesforth and my sort of port launch a repl.

Anyone here use and ? I’m having trouble getting git/push and friends to work with my remote repos.

@ddevault hey drew! Is there a guide for using sourcehut from 9front? I’m having trouble interacting with my git repos.

@sigrid hey! I noticed you use sourcehut and plan9. I’m trying to push to a git.sr.ht repo and failing. Do you have any advice on setting up plan9 to work with the service?
