#184677 - You missed the point!
Responding to: Jan Waclawek's previous message
Jan Waclawek said:
Even in compiled languages I am able to write - and have written, on uncountable occasions - errors which revealed themselves only later.

Yes, of course - but that was not the point!

The point was that you can't have undected source-code syntax or semantics errors (eg, undefined variables)

There are of course so many variants of the "interpreted language" paradigm, with various minor points for and against

Indeed - but I was talking about the specific claim that removing the "build" step is an "advantage"
