How to get around in Boo

time to read 1 min | 75 words

When you are not sure how to do something in Boo, try doing it like you would with C# (with the obvious syntax changes), in most cases, it would work. It may not be the best way to do something, however.

Keep this a secret, I may get thrown out of the Boo Associated Hackers community if that would happen, and where I would be without my BAH! membership?



You'd be a lost sheep I guess.


I find that more often than not, the answer to the question "how do I do this in Boo?" is "as naturally as you can".

On the slight chance that it doesn't work, you usually get an extremely unfriendly parser error; but that's a reasonable price to pay for a first try.
