another coworker, on a past hack:
"There was a Ruby... abomination that someone wrote that hooked on the 'undefined method call' hook of the base Ruby object, computed the closest actual method by using Levenshtein distance, and delegated to that function instead."
@danielhglus but why
@danielhglus Function autocorrect
What in bash nation
@danielhglus wow what could go wrong?
@danielhglus this is beautiful
@danielhglus okay i will admit i've done a thing kind of like this, but in a python and for GL call naming convention normalization; doing that just off edit distance is wild tho
@danielhglus I have to admit, that is pretty cool.
@danielhglus better hope they didn't misspell a method name in that code
@VyrCossont ...oh my
@danielhglus That reminds me of the stackoverflow python module which would search for your keyword and compile code from the answers.
