Subject: Re: Static/Strong/Implicit Typing From: Erik Naggum <firstname.lastname@example.org> Date: 26 Jan 2004 11:54:41 +0000 Newsgroups: comp.lang.lisp Message-ID: <3284106881595417KL2065E@naggum.no> * Tayssir John Gabbour | /Static analysis does not mean it must run at compiletime./ Actually, that it run at compile time is the definition of «static» -- it requires no dynamic (= run-time) information. | However, there is this insane presumption, orthogonal to static | analysis, that says we must run screaming from errors with our hands | over our ears. I don't think this is a fault in anyone, just our | byzantine languages and educations that pressure us into being macho | and hiding our faults as soon as possible, before anyone else can see | them. Well said. :) -- Erik Naggum | Oslo, Norway 2004-026 Act from reason, and failure makes you rethink and study harder. Act from faith, and failure makes you blame someone and push harder.
