I think that at the end of meeting 8 we agreed on having meeting 9 on Mon 23rd June. This should give us enough time for some of us to have a go at the homework @chrislo set in our last meeting

1. Make the parser more tolerant of whitespace so that we can make our scheme easier to read, see
2. ...and/or make predicate methods return Ruby booleans so that we stop getting so confused, see

See you there,

Hi all,

I’m not going to make it tomorrow - I’ve had a cold all week and I’m pretty sure after a full day at work I’ll just want to collapse on my sofa tomorrow rather than wrestle with the latest confusing rules from the book.  However, I have attempted to do the homework and created pull-requests with my efforts:


I don’t know that my solutions are anything other than inelegant, but perhaps you’ll find them useful.

Thanks Murray! We'll discuss these tonight and pass judgement in your absence.

For the record, Joel also pitched in with an (earlier) attempt to address "the boolean problem":

I’ve family in town and they’re keen to discuss the meaning of -3.
