in reply to Paid for crap

poor you!

One of the comments in the forum is interesting: for the computer language shootout (google for these 3 words if you don't know it -- I often use that page to check for new languages...) return in perl and ruby was taken off for speed. Still PBP indicates that sometimes it is not clear which statement will be last (especially if there is a loop construct or foreach). So too much optimization can be dangerous. Don't know what happens in ruby.
