Not trying to start an argument here, just curious. Would you say all dynamic languages are hard to read and are only for lazy programmers?

Python, which many people proclaim as the language easiest to read and understand, doesn't let you specify types for variables. There is no keyword equivalent to var even.

Also, I'd think var is useful when you don't care about the actual type, only that it has certain methods or properties.

var result = CalculateSomething();
result.DoX();


The code expresses the intent that it doesn't care what type result is, as long as there is a DoX method on it (without which it won't compile, of course). In a way, it's almost like result is a generic or template parameter.

What do you think?

Regards
Senthil
