Hi everyone, I'm writing my Masters thesis on object-oriented programming language features. It's a survey of seven different languages: Smalltalk, Eiffel, Objective-C, C++, Java, Python, and Ruby. I'm trying to get a reviewer for each language, just to make sure I haven't misrepresented them in any way. I have written code in each of them, but obviously I haven't become an expert in all of them. Would one of you be willing to proofread the Ruby sections of my thesis? You wouldn't need to be nitpicky, just make sure I haven't misrepresented or left out anything. It would probably only take you an hour or two. I would send it to you this evening, and I would need your comments by Wednesday night. (Yes, I know, I'm cutting things a little short.) You would receive a mention in the acknowledgments. I look forward to hearing from some of you. Thanks, Ben Pharr

JEGII +1 That does seem like the ruby way to proofread a thesis. Then you could acknowledge the community, too.

That would be ideal if I weren't already running way behind. I'm afraid if I posted it to the list I'd get a deluge of mail. Remember, I've got seven languages to worry about. I had hoped to have it finished earlier, so I could get input from a wider range of people, but you know how that goes. I'll definitely post a link to the list once I have defended it. Even then I'll be happy to take suggestions, as I think it has the potential to be a good resource for all object-oriented developers. Let me know if you'd like to be a reviewer. Two or three Ruby guys would be great. Thanks, Ben
