Comment for partial line

Hi

Can someone confirm that Ruby only allows #tail of line commenting and
=begin
this
whole
block
commenting
=end

and not partial line commenting?

and if so, i request this be changed! its really annoying not being able
to do a partial line comment in rhtml

thanks

You can do HTML comments in RHTML you know. :wink:

Either,
or…

<% do_stuff; “comment on it”; do_more; “more comments” %>

but please, if you need to document a template… move that stuff into
the controller…

its more for bug tracking; to be able to remove functionality
temporarily to see what is broken, so more like

<% do_stuff; /* HIDE THE FOLLOWING FROM RUBY do_more; */ %>

too much logic being a rails form helper?

i dont want to turn this thread into a debate about programming design,
i just want to know if ruby offers a fairly simple syntax function which
is available in many languages.

that means that perhaps you have way too much logic in your template,
and you
should better move that logic into the controller. it isn’t just a
matter of
taste, it’s a matter of good design :).

no.

cool thanks michael.

i think there may be some argument for it to be supported in the case of
erb in rhtml; mostly due to common html markup style which is different
to ruby due to line spacing and inline elements in html

So you are really after a debate then :wink:

the ff is just a kludge. i enclose them text inside single quotes, or %<

, or %<-- -->

irb(main):041:0> print "Hello, "; ‘this wont run; puts “NO!”’; print
“world\n”
Hello, world
=> nil
irb(main):042:0> print "Hello, "; %<this wont run; puts “NO!”>; print
“world\n”
Hello, world
=> nil
irb(main):046:0> print "Hello, "; %<–NONONO!–>; print “world.\n”
Hello, world.
=> nil

Hey, about an rcr, use “–” or “++” as inline commenters :))

But sincerely, i have a phobia of inline comments. I once had a bug that
took me a day (24hrs) to find because of a very slick inline comment i
inserted… arrghh… but that was then. Now, unit test/tdd/bdd/rspec/ioc
rocks. no fear :slight_smile:

kind regards -botp
