I'm way too lazy to do Test Driven Dev. I like immediate satisfaction.

But I'm a fan of dogfooding. For those outside microsoft land that means using the stuff you make for your own real world things before release.

It's a royal pain though, precisely because it is good at driving bugs out of hiding.

Unfortunately, because of the complexity of Slang, any real world project with it is the total house that jack built - there's a half dozen steps to go through before reproducing anything, and sometimes bugs only crop up when i use a slang powered tool as a pre-build step which means no debugger.

I can't tell you how many times now I've had to copy the file contents of my Slang Tokenizer from github because my tool keeps breaking it. meh

Still, better now than later.
When I was growin' up, I was the smartest kid I knew. Maybe that was just because I didn't know that many kids. All I know is now I feel the opposite.
