What does a ruby programmer do to his program when he can't find a bug?


He puts it to death.


About the same as in any other language: either figure out how to debug it or throw in the towel!


add lots of puts (even in a simple data manipulation) to track down the bug.


Sometimes the start/commit operation omits warnings and some erros, try to remove them. At least it happened to me.


asks less obscure questions, in the hope that someone else has the answer…



I said "He PUTS it to death."
For those who thought I was asking a question, I suggest this link:


then it should have been…

# He 
puts 'it to death.'

not as obscure…


zoom! right past my head! Barry you are evil.
