Issue #16495 has been updated by matz (Yukihiro Matsumoto).


It was something cultural. I admit nowadays very few people use backquote as a left-hand quote, but it used to be. I also admit consistent quotes are easier for our eyes when using recent major fonts. But changing those quotes may affect existing log parsers. We have to estimate how big is the influence of the changes.

Feature #16495: Inconsistent quotes in error messages
https://bugs.ruby-lang.org/issues/16495#change-83919

* Author: Kolano (Kenneth Kolano)
* Status: Open
* Priority: Normal
* Assignee: 
* Target version: 
----------------------------------------
Error messages use inconsistent pairs of quotes, for instance:

```
-e:1:in `<main>': undefined local variable or method `foo' for main:Object (NameError)
```

where a back tick is used on the left-hand side, and a single quote is used on the right.

The same quotes should be used on either side of the elements being quoted.
