I see that Greg Black is mentioning problems with Python changes.
No worries, Greg, just use Ruby. (-:
No, I’m not a programming genius but I have used both languages and do prefer Ruby — in fact, it’s more than a preference, Ruby has been in its own way a revelation. So many things which used to be cumbersome became simple and straightforward.
In fact, I’m just about to re-code an old-favourite audio application from Java to Ruby, if I can. I don’t want to bother playing with the bazillion or so specific Java bandaids required just in order to make the thing run!
