Most of the definitions given for strong and weak typing involve details of what information is available at compile-time, what information is available at execution-time etc. However, Eric pointed out that a lot of the time the definitions really boil down to:
- A "strong" type system is one which I like
- A "weak" type system is one which is dislike
At that level, the terms become relatively meaningless.
