What are some strategies folks use to debug running quil loops with cider? I’m encountering issues and I’d like to see the state of things at runtime. I can start a normal cider-debug session C-u C-M-x on the draw function and then supply a made up state in the repl and walk through it but it doesn’t trigger on the initial condition, so I’d rather set a breakpoint and catch the exception at the particular state the system is in when it happens.

Hmm, whenever I try to drive a 4096x4096 image, my machine slows to a crawl. I need to set this up headlessly. On my iPhone using Python, I can crank this out in a few seconds.

the code above is all using boxed numbers, which are about 100x slower than primitives

some well placed type hints would probably help a lot

the first set of defs could be marked as both ^:constant and ^long or ^double as appropriate and the state would probably need to be a double or long array (didn't look at it that closely)

Ha, went looking for more info and stumbled on your blog post on just such a topic

Thanks for the tips

it's more disturbing when I search for something and find a blog I wrote that answers the question, which happens regularly
