Why Ruby Complains about Nested Parentheses
By: Johnathon Wright on: June 28, 2010
Every time a dev asks me why Ruby doesn't like nested arguments without parens, I draw a blank, but I swear that it's an issue.
Here's an example of the issue:
=link_to h @person.philosophy, @person.philosophy
it seems really obvious right now. I'm not sure why I can't think of that when it's clinch time. Anyway, this can be the obviously intended call:
=link_to( h( @person.philosophy ), @person.philosophy )
or the unfortunate( and invalid, since h takes 1 not 2 arguments )
