“Semicolon Mode”

I think I coined a new term this week.

Several C-like languages (C#, Javascript, Objective-C, etc.) end statements with a semicolon. Other languages (Visual Basic, Python, etc.) don’t.

I had been writing some C# for a while and switched over to work on a Visual Basic project. I found myself putting semicolons at the end of the VB lines and said to myself: “Hey, I’m still in ‘Semicolon Mode’”. Smile
