Re: [Clip] Minor Critics (was: Why is my condition test not working?)
- I would certainly agree with the following ideal of strict syntax as someone who does a bit of programming in Java, PHP, Perl and Python. (not alot, mind you...) While it can sometimes be frustrating to move between them, it's certainly worse when you move from a less structured language to a more structured language, especially if you have alot of experience in the former and have picked up bad habits. One thing I would note, however is that I have found myself prefering syntax which utilizes spacing between parts of expressions. I find this easier to read and debug.
^!Set has some irregularities in it. They will be fixed in
version 5. I believe Eric should use a more strict syntax so
that we all use correct code and not to have him put bugs in
NoteTab to accept improper syntax, even if they are commonly made
