The Weird and The Wonderful

   

The Weird and The Wonderful forum is a place to post Coding Horrors, Worst Practices, and the occasional flash of brilliance.

We all come across code that simply boggles the mind. Lazy kludges, embarrasing mistakes, horrid workarounds and developers just not quite getting it. And then somedays we come across - or write - the truly sublime.

Post your Best, your worst, and your most interesting. But please - no programming questions . This forum is purely for amusement and discussions on code snippets. All actual programming questions will be removed.

Ick - I've seen way too much of this type of thing in code over the last 3 decades. I've come to calling this style of programming "brute force" programming.

So, whoever wrote this loses lots of points for elegance (or the lack thereof), but they do get some points in my book for style (use of braces, indentation, etc). No default case however...
