in reply to [SOLVED] Pack/unpack - understanding the '@' and '.' templactes

Does anyone know of (or have) any tutorials/examples that delve more in depth with the "@" and "." templates?

Examples that delve deeply in it? You asked for it! See obfuscations at Re^2: Pulling JAPH out of nowhere..., Game of life ran by unpack function. No, these won't help you understand these templates.

    Heh heh

    Yup, I saw those. They inspired me to experiment deeper with pack/unpack. Oddly enough, your Just another unpack hacker helped me conceptualise what the "/" modifier does. (You know the docs are in a sorry state when you turn to a JAPH for help... o_0)

[james28909]: and that is also anothe rpoint i made, i think it has to do with perception of the world around you. most people think of evolution on a human scale. why could life evolve on this planet? because this planet evolved in this solar system. and so on.
[holli]: here's something for you to watch, James. I think you will like it
[erix]: for the record: I have not downvoted anyone on that subthread that was my fault
[james28909]: there are all kinds of things that had to happen to let life come to be. but at the same time, life may not be the end goal IF there is any kind of end goal lol
[james28909]: well who is the person who gets to decide which behaviour is worthy of a downvote? a person with their own beliefs? xD
[erix]: teleology -- I've never understood why that was thunk up
[erix]: ( and when teleology was brought up, during my biology-study., I couldn't get an answer either )
[1nickt]: FTR I agree with you about "design." Just not sure about the trajectory of evolution. THere are a lot of dead-ends in the evolutionary paths. I suspect homo sapiens is just one of them.
[james28909]: thanks for the vid holli, i do like it. thanks for sharing :)
