( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
I took a look at Ruby recently, but it had such serious flaws in my view that I dropped it like a hot potato. The main issue I described in The power of strict typo-checking. What was your experience with typo issues in Ruby?

Besides that, the scoping rules for local variables are horrible. (If you happen to use the same name as an outer scope, you clobber that variable? And they call that lexical scoping? I know some sort of fix is on the way, but still...)

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
