Too much coding

Posted 20 July 2008 - 03:15 PM

You know you've been doing too much coding when you start ending sentences with semicolons. :D

Anyone know of a language that ends lines with periods, so I can get practice writing sentences to real people? Please?

LOLCODE makes more sense than some other programming languages.

If someone wrote a frontend for GCC, LOLCODE could actually be useful.

I was doing a lot of Python today, went back to C++ for a bit and kept forgetting semicolons :(

Yeah - Prolog. It even answers you in English. If your program has a bug, rather than print out a cryptic error message, it just replies "No". Hence the old joke:

Q: How many Prolog programmers does it take to screw in a light bulb.
A: No.

It's funny if you've ever worked with Prolog. Really!

When taking notes in school, I tend to start using programming statements and notations like !=. Since we have to turn in our notes (just so the teacher can make sure we did them) they always put little question marks. They find it wierd that instead of "Thomas Paine published Common Sense in 1776" I write define(1776, Common Sense written).

Why don't you learn VB?
Ending your sentences with nothing is better than ending them with semicolons.

I look like a big retarded idiot when someone reads this sentence;

I look like a slight idiot when someone reads sentence

Because if I learned VB I would have to stop cringing whenever someone brought it up. :P

I have never use programming notation when taking notes (perhaps because I never had a laptop to take notes on in class) but I do take my notes in mathematical logic notation. This really confuses most non-mathematics teachers. However in mathematics classes the teachers tended to correct my notes.

English teachers always find my notes amusing and confusing. After they see my notes they tend to have a prejudice towards me as though there are subtleties to their lectures that could never be captured by my notation.

I use symbols in my notes sometimes (==, !=, etc). I don't think their use is exactly restricted to programming though.
