Man, you really don;t think things through do you.
A configurable pragma won't speed numerical increment up, it'll slow it down. It's just one extra test that will need to be performed every time.
And it won't help a JS port, unless the JS port will only run code that disables all the things that come from having transparent type conversion.
That includes things like 2**32 (or 2**64) + 1 becoming an NV; and 0+'12' doing the right thing. And at that point; it ain't Perl.
With the rise and rise of 'Social' network sites: 'Computers are making people easier to use everyday'
Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.
"Science is about questioning the status quo. Questioning authority".
In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.
