Groovy for bioinformatics.

I'll have a lot to say about Groovy for bioinformatics in this blog. Until I have time to write some posts on the topic here is Mark Fortner's brief comparison of how Groovy stacks up to Perl for bioinformatics. Mark has also set up a BioGroovy project wiki.

    I have been working to learn Groovy, largely because I like the design of Rails, but I just don't want to spend the time needed to learn Ruby. I wanted to add one caveat to the Groovy is Java meme. The problem is array initialization. In groovy, you can create a list with the rather sane syntax of
    String[] myArray = ["0", "1", "2"]; However, Java is more C-like and the equivalent syntax is
    String[] myArray = {"0", "1", "2"}; In retrospect, the Java syntax is wierd, but it was first. In any case, it is interesting to see that groovy is gaining some ground in bioinformatics. (April 6, 2009 at 12:29 PM) top
