Sigh

[ #39050 ]

I'm going to be writing a lot of ruby now. :-/ I'm sad to be giving up the awesome tools available in perl. :-/

*sigh*

# Sigh. Automatic semicolons are a disease.
foo =\
  bar\
  .select { |e| e.yah? }\
  .collect { | e| e.noooo! }\
  .select { |e| e.ok? }

  • The trailing backslashes sooo give me TCL slashbacks. Urgh. 8-P

  • Ruby will not insert semicolons if it would be syntactically incorrect to do so:

    foo =
        bar.
          select { |e| e.yah? }.
          collect { | e| e.noooo! }.
          select { |e| e.ok? }

    However do tell me if you find an adequate replacement for strict.

    • If Ruby had more Smalltalk, it would be just fine.

      foo =
          bar
            select { |e| e.yah? }
            collect { | e| e.noooo! }
            select { |e| e.ok? }.
