View Full Version : How would you simplify your programming language?

We all have those languages which frustrate us to pieces. Little things here and there that (in our opinion) should've been written better for coding. Tell me what you would modify about any language of your choosing.

Me: I hate how in Python3 print has been changed to print(""). I wish it was simply

get xxx: $var
print xxx $var
password xxx $varb
print $varb

Not a complaint or suggestion. We all have parts of coding that we dislike. What's yours?

Being someone who has to work with PHP more than I'd like to, I hate hate hate hate typing => and -> all over the place.

There are few characters more annoying to type than angle brackets, and you already have to type them to make the HTML; any kind of object-oriented PHP code gives my right hand cramps after a while.
