Subject Re: chdir() implementation requested in groovy, just like jruby
Date Sun, 05 Jul 2015 20:58:45 GMT
Well... The only thing really competing with JRuby is Ruby.

Groovy isn't a bridge for another language which is why it's approx 4x
faster than JRuby.

It's purpose isn't to mock every other language but to implement convention
over config concepts, provide a scripting language for Java,  simplified
functions.

The chdir() function really really depends on env, framework and alot of
variables that need to be set by a developer creating a required config
over convention functionality. You CAN automate it but you lose speed when
running over simplicity.

I think thats why it won't be implemented IMHO.
