I was messing around with ruby a little and decided to write a little indexer that would tell me what the most common words were in my files. It’s really kind of a dumb program, but it was interesting what it turned out when I ran it against my code. The most common word was frequently the word ‘the.’ ‘the’ is not a commonly used variable or function in Ruby. So I looked at my code and realized that it was heavily commented, yielding frequent ‘the’s.
That being said, I’m curious to see what other people find running the indexer against their code. You can get it at http://github.com/woody2shoes/indexer/tree/master. Please comment and let me know what your code looks like.
