Why a comma?

by The PhyloGenesis (Login PhyloGenesis)


"Hello, World!" is stupid. That's not how it's said at all. (I don't mean to pick on you, it bothers me because I've seen it done that way so many times.)

I don't say it, "Hello", pause, "World!". That's like saying hi to somebody then yelling at them "world". Also, don't capitalize after a comma. Earth maybe, but not world.

Sorry to nitpick, the comma just bugs me. :-)

I use either:
PRINT "Hello world!"
PRINT "Hello world."
