Comments are evil?

February 23, 2009 by Michael

What can cause this snippet to fail:

<% if !@day.user.is_rateable?  # Workaround für Darstellungsfehler mit Tabellen ohne Bodies im Safari  %>
<!-- blah -->
<% end %>

This little snippet fell apart today. I don’t know if it is passenger, a newer ruby version, RubyInline. All i know is that i am so totally pissed of this incredible amount of incompatible versions of just 3 modules that i literally feel like puking. What a hell of a day.

By the way, the thing that broke was the one-line comment right after the if.
