Hey @nikomatsakis , I'm trying to summarize and write a chapter for the
rustc-guide about your lecture, and I was struggling to hear 2 words about "base inputs" at 3:23, can you provide insight? Specifinally, I was able to understand this:
They are not something that you **inaubible** but something that you kinda get **inaudible** from the outside
I'll let you know if I have further questions
@Francesco Dainese doesn't it say something like
they are something that you kind of get set from the outside, kind of get given then
my english is not great but maybe that helps?
was just focusing on that particular phrase, wasn't paying attention really to what was he exactly explaining
I agree on the "set from the outside", makes more sense than the "sucked from the outside" that I thought I was hearing.
The first word I think it's "compute", but I'm not entirely sure, that's why I wanted to ask him directly.
I can continue with the work either way, it's just that it's not as complete.
As per how to actually submit the document, should I fork the repo and add it somewhere or ? @Santiago Pastorino
send a PR to rustc-guide
try to fit the work somewhere or just add a new file with the chapter and we can figure out where to place it
@nikomatsakis is on vacations, try to reach him out in a couple of weeks maybe
Oh, I saw him hold meetings today so I thought he had come back
I wanted to submit my work today but I wanted to check how mdbook rendered it, so I installed it, along with
linkcheck and I got a whole bunch of complaints from the plugin, not related to my work.
I'll try fix it tomorrow. In the meantime, I'm attaching how_salsa_works.md
I was able to get it to build by adding
traverse-parent-directories = true
#401 has been made
Have you seen this part of the rust-analyzer guide? feel free to use/adapt the illustrations i made :)
@Pascal No, I was not aware of that. I've checked it out and I don't know if it's a fit for rustc-guide. I'm actually wondering if the chapter itself is a fit for rustc-guide :sweat_smile: ... Thanks tho, I already saw where I could fit those illustrations
@Francesco Dainese sorry, been very sporadically following up on things here -- @Santiago Pastorino's translation sounded about right to me though
