63 years ago today, a plan for partitioning Palestine was adopted by the General Assembly of the United Nations.
The comparison between the proposed borders and the armistice lines from two years later looks like an attempt to beat the 4-color theorem.
Today, I handled the tests of Routes, Astaire and Squerl.
I removed Routes. The last commit on it is from June 2009 and has the message
add comment-question about rakudobug, Routes is broken for now(by Ilya, who no longer contributes actively to Web.pm). The commit contains debug output, and has no easy fix. Under those conditions, I see no way to get Routes working. Probably best to consider it a work-in-progress that never really got there.
Astaire had one test file that looked nice but had never run. I skipped it for now.
Squerl had four failing tests that simply needed
TODOing. I also tried implementing them, but ran into unknown (!) problems, something I don't often do nowadays. I got as far in my diagnosing the problem as identifying that it occurred in the boundary between a caller and a callee. Beyond that, I have no idea what's going wrong.
It's rather nice to see the Web.pm test suite run with result
PASS. Might be the first time it does that, I don't recall.
