126911 [transami run] Let me painfully honest: I hate parsing, especially w/ regexp, and I don't
+ 126914 [zdennis mkte] The trick here is to make sure you are non-greedy.

| | + 126925 [transami run] Oops scratch that. That's not the reason either (sigh). But I got it working
| | + 126927 [assaph gmail] It has todo with the pattern matching being greedy, not the /x flag.
| |   126935 [transami run] Thanks Assaph,
| |   126936 [assaph gmail] Thats because [^`] will match 'a single character that is not `'.

| + 127034 [lists bertra] What are the square brackets for? As far as I see /\[\w+\]/
| | + 127040 [zdennis mkte] In a regular expression squares brackets represent a character class. A

  126972 [transami run] Ah this is my major problem. I tend to write whole chunks of code at once and

^ PHP ERB
126920 [patrick hexa] One of the nice things about php is that the '<?>' keys are close to

| | + 126990 [rff_rff remo] +1 for <?r (which IIRC is Nitro's way of doing things :)

^ value by reference
127057 [mkhan lextra] def do_something(a, b, c)
+ 127058 [tsawyer gmai] I beleive it is by reference, the problem is you need to modify
| + 127079 [tsawyer gmai] I would like to elaborate on this generally. Is ti possibel to have a

|   127121 [flgr ccan.de] Of course nothing can change the value of immediate Objects. :)
|   + 127127 [glenn.parker] Sorry, but I can't believe anybody would actually want to use the lambda
|   | + 127131 [dblack wobbl] Then again, I've found that when people get confused by things in
|   | | + 127135 [blaumag gmai] def do_something(a, b, c)
|   | | | + 127137 [dblack wobbl] What would you replace 5 with? :-)
|   | | | | 127139 [blaumag gmai] idea would be to modify the language to allow that kind of
|   | | | | + 127142 [ruby-lists l] replace already exists in string and makes a lot of sense.
|   | | | | | 127145 [tsawyer gmai] Is the "right" design pure by-value? You seem to be pushing in that
|   | | | | | 127151 [ruby-lists l] yes
|   | | | | | 127208 [tsawyer gmai] Actually, I absolutely agree with you. I do beleive in functional
|   | | | | + 127144 [dblack wobbl] I guess that's similar to the "become" idea that people have discussed
|   | | | | + 127164 [flgr ccan.de] Something is usually wrong when you want an Object to change classes at
|   | | | |   127209 [blaumag gmai] Actually I've never had the need for this hack, I just wanted to share
|   | | | |   + 127210 [blaumag gmai] David? I mean Florian!
|   | | | |   + 127215 [tsawyer gmai] Wizard Peter Vanbroekhoven has also written a #become patch for Ruby.
|   | | | |   + 127216 [flgr ccan.de] I disagree. I think there are some core principles of Ruby that make it
|   | | | |     127243 [ruby-talk wh] Disagreement here as well.  I've needed Object#become quite a bit in my
|   | | | |     127266 [flgr ccan.de] Actually, it isn't. Have a look at the evil-ruby project. There is a lot
|   | | | + 127140 [langstefan g] But replace doesn't replace the object the variable
|   | | | + 127205 [discordantus] String#replace doesn't change the object the variable refers to, it
|   | | |   127212 [flgr ccan.de] Ref.new(false) or Ref.new(nil) do not act like you would expect them to
|   | | |   127231 [discordantus] Ah, I hadn't thought of that. I guess if you would need to
|   | | |   127234 [flgr ccan.de] Yup, #to_bool is really missing here.
|   | | + 127253 [glenn.parker] Ouch!  That's what I get for posting code without trying it out first.
|   | |   127261 [jim weirichh] Perl does it by creating a reference (with a backslash) and then
|   | |   127268 [flgr ccan.de] BTW, I think this actually inspired me to write Binding.of_caller and
|   | + 127155 [halostatue g] The Variable method is useful; I agree about lambda for this bit.
|   | + 127159 [flgr ccan.de] They are wordy only when you want to increment multiple variables from
|   | + 127184 [aredridel gm] Rightly so. I can't see any reason for .succ! to exist, really, and
|   + 127128 [tsawyer gmai] Right. I'm not suggesting that Ruby change this. I'm just wondering if
|     + 127132 [ruby-lists l] sorry if this offends, but there is no less blunt way to say it.
|     | 127146 [tsawyer gmai] That's silly. By that line of reasoning, nearly every other language
|     | + 127149 [ruby-lists l] sure. people who want quick unmaintainable hacks shouldn't use ruby i
|     | + 127152 [mkhan lextra] Here, I agree with you.
|     | | 127154 [ruby-lists l] performance
|     | + 127158 [halostatue g] No, it's not silly. Consider that C didn't have reference arguments
|     | | 127197 [tsawyer gmai] Never mentioned POLS. As for ducky nature, I'm simply referring to it
|     | + 127168 [flgr ccan.de] No, other languages use other models that need this. They don't work
|     |   127171 [as computer-] A nice discussion.
|     |   127175 [flgr ccan.de] Thanks, but I just spotted myself using "you're" instead of "your".
|     |   127181 [as computer-] It's a change for the worse.
|     + 127166 [flgr ccan.de] Please, don't. That would actually make all this wrong thinking models
|     + 127219 [jim weirichh] A perfectly good way to think of variables in FORTRAN, Ada, Pascal,
+ 127059 [flgr ccan.de] This is not easily done. First of all you should ask yourself why you
| 127063 [mkhan lextra] I really need it.
| 127069 [flgr ccan.de] Maybe you could return a Hash then?
+ 127061 [assaph gmail] It's probably easier if you're used to think in pointers / references.
+ 127085 [dblack wobbl] Fixnums are immediate values, and are immutable, even when they're
+ 127147 [mkhan lextra] #!/usr/bin/env ruby
| + 127160 [flgr ccan.de] x, y, z = 1, 2, 3
| | 127165 [mkhan lextra] I understand that.
| | + 127173 [flgr ccan.de] First, let's agree on using the term "mutable" (or "changeable") instead
| | | 127176 [mkhan lextra] agreed on using term 'mutable'.
| | | + 127183 [halostatue g] Different things entirely.
| | | + 127188 [langstefan g] You have to tell ruby what object you want to pass
| | + 127179 [halostatue g] The distinction is not between clonable objects and non-clonable
| + 127163 [halostatue g] I don't know why you're not getting this, as it is very simple.
|   127169 [mkhan lextra] May be I am not that simple!! :p
|   + 127174 [flgr ccan.de] Every thing is an Object. Names for things are not Objects because then
|   + 127182 [halostatue g] Yes, and no.
|     127190 [mkhan lextra] It would be great if we can do
|     127199 [flgr ccan.de] Which would be Objects whose values can be changed?
|     + 127204 [mkhan lextra] In this instance it would be confusing.
|     | + 127217 [flgr ccan.de] There's other ways that work without changing the language. They were
|     | + 127226 [halostatue g] *Why* do you want to be able to do that? Is there not something else
|     + 127237 [chneukirchen] I disagree.  a simply is an *reference to an* Integer, initalized with
