Re: "" vs ''

Isn’t it better to use ‘some string’ instead of “some string”.
Because the “” goes through a lot more working interpreting any
variable that might be in the string, etc. Where as ‘’ is
just literal.

Thanks for your help.

I think this is more or less along the lines of personal preference.
I’ve (somewhat recently) adopted the philosophy of always using single
quotes for string literals, and only using double quotes for strings
that require variable interpolation.

This has gotten me into a bit of trouble when I switch from Ruby to C
extensions, however. :slight_smile:
