Discussion on: A compiler is She/Her? 🤔

Because it shouldn't asume that he (in spanish is a he) knows what the error is, it might be that you missed a bunch of code not just the ; asuming that, would hide the problem from the programmer. As an example, the Rust compiler gives you suggestion to solve the problem, but it still gives you an error. If the compiler could infer without a doubt what was your intent with or without a character, then the language has a redundant syntax, then the real question should be why we use that character in the first place.
