By the way, I'm using the ruby programming language
a = 1 a = a+1
now what I did was to add the value of 1 to the variable "a", then a would be equal to a+1. So a = 2 or a = a+1
a = 1 a += 1
This is much more efficient than a = a+1, and less confusing. Sometimes the a = a+1 seems to be a paradox.
Anybody got examples of programming efficiency that a noob like me can understand?
