Question about getc

Hi.
If we call gets(), the returned string is copied to a special variable
$_
Do we have such things for getc(), too?

No, implicit global variables are evil. I’d rather remove $_ in the
future.

I use global variables for golfing only… :slight_smile: but please don’t remove $_!

Sorry… I mean ‘implicit’ global variables

This is probably a good argument for removing the variable. :wink:

I never use $_ in any ‘def’ed method but I use it in
every ‘-ne’/’-pe’ oneliner. Please keep it.

As both a dedicated Rubyist, and an astronomically high-handicap USGA
member, I’m all for getting rid of both $_ AND golfing from Ruby.
Golf is for getting away from the computer.
