RE: A troubling thought - smartmatch reïmagined
Message ID:
Usage of "ï" in this context is obviously incorrect.
Not only you're messing with following search engines, you're also applying wrong meaning to the umlaut.

IMO adding such kind of jokes isn't improving overall impression.

This joke is stupid.

Subject: A troubling thought - smartmatch reïmagined


Preface: This is less a concrete idea, and more a rambling set of
  thoughts that lead me to a somewhat awkward place. I'm writing it out
  here in the hope that others can lend suggestions and ideas, and see
  if we can arrive at a better place.

This started off as a quick email, that turned into a long email, that became a *very* long email that I eventually decided to turn into a blog post.

For the full content, you can see;!!LpKI!hbz9n_FFgEYwFXlW5jzZQXz-cVlpJV6QHRJ7p8nL2gAD3O5Qid8EcBzsNwafdt5YfqJ9g7zAU2kDl1wVbDa2O8k8$ [leonerds-code[.]blogspot[.]com]

but as a summary:

  I wonder if we're going about things the wrong way, regarding strings
  vs numbers, equality test operators, smartmatch, and a bunch of other
  ideas. Maybe - maybe - now that we can distinguish strings vs numbers
  a little better, there's a way we can make a single operator Do The
  Right Thing.

Comments welcome - on blog or replied here.
