Comment on "Sanity Checking for Scripting Languages"
by ssp — Dec 24
Those compile time checks are a definite plus. I think this is one of the main reasons why I'm not a big fan of scripting languages. It just makes things seem disorganised and chaotic.

(In a way this may be a milder version of the problems we are seeing with HTML: Browsers are expected to render incorrect code - thus making real-world browser programming a nightmare. Just compare this to the world of TeX where documents are properly compiled, error messages are given and documents render consistently over decades.)
