One thing I would like to emphasize in my to-be-created language is that there should, generally speaking, only be one correct way to do something. I think it would make the syntax more uniform and make things less difficult to document, etc.*
So I suppose at some point I'll have to decide between and vs. &&, not vs. ! vs. ~ and so on. Leaning toward the English-like options.
*One interesting effect this would have is that there would only be one kind of loop. No for vs. while, just some kind of loop feature.
Yeah, Ruby pretty much goes the other way completely with that. I try not to indulge it too much, but this mentality jives with my personality, probably helps create the right coder language fit.
We're a place where coders share, stay up-to-date and grow their careers.
We strive for transparency and don't collect excess data.
