That's why I heartfelt aversion for any dynamic-typed programming language:
why would you throw away such a beautiful feature that does tell you, at compile time, if "X can be fitted into Y / passed to function Z()" (not just checking for undefined), rather than have errors at runtime ? :confused:

Lack of type checking looks great at first. But in the long run...
