Data types in Slim

After an initial introduction video, one on comparaison operators, Bob Martin has now a video on Data Types in Slim, his Fit replacement in Fitnesse.

Data types in Slim are simple. They can only be Strings and Lists, though it is entirely possible for fixtures to actually get integers.

A list looks like this:

[1, 2, 0.5]

Note the brackets. Also, note the space between the comas and the following value. This is important, as the comparaison will actually be made between the exact string specified in the table, and the String representation of the List returned by the fixture. Hence, the format in toString() is important.
