# Limitations

The philosophy of mruby is to be a lightweight implementation of
the Ruby ISO standard. These two objectives are partially contradicting
due to the reason that Ruby is a powerful language with complex
implementation details which are difficult to implement in a lightweight
manner.

This document is collecting these limitations.

## Integrity

## Confirmed limitations

### ```Array``` passed to ```puts```

Passing an Array to ```puts``` results in different output.

```ruby
puts [1,2,3]
```

#### Ruby [ruby 2.0.0p645 (2015-04-13 revision 50299)]

```
1
2
3
```

#### mruby [1.2.0 (2015-11-17)]

```
[1, 2, 3]
```

### ```Kernel.raise``` in rescue clause

```Kernel.raise``` without arguments does not raise the current exception within
a rescue clause.
```ruby
begin
1 / 0
rescue
raise
end
```

#### Ruby [ruby 2.0.0p645 (2015-04-13 revision 50299)]

```ZeroDivisionError``` is raised.
#### mruby [1.2.0 (2015-11-17)]
No exception is raised.
