One thing I just saw, which I like is the ability to declare multiple
variables with one var
var a, b : Bool, c : Int = 0;
My only complaint is I dont really like using a comma to mean two
different things on the same line. Here, the first comma is listing
variables of a given type. But the second comman is a separator
between variables of different types.
I would almost prefer that the second comma be a semi colon than a
comma. It is more syntactically consistent given that if they were on
different lines they would be separated by semicolon. I realize that
this is probably harder to do because the semicolon has special
meaning relating to terminating statements, so perhaps another
separator that isnt regularly used. I dont really care what. It just
seems to me that the second comma is confusing.
