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.

Sometimes I have the impression to work for Augeas[^] Stables Inc, but actually I am expected to produce more dung than to get rid of it...
In the 13395 lines of code of the main window of one of our applications, I found this little gem (really little - only 320 loc) whose functionality I'll need in a new application (a little anonymized):
        /// <summary>
        /// some description
        /// </summary>
        private void DoSomething()
        {
            ...
            #region do X
            ...
            #endregion
 
            #region do Y
            ...
            #endregion
 
            #region do Z
            ...
            #endregion
 
            #region do A
            ...
            #endregion
 
            #region do B
            if (some condition)
            {
                #region do C
                ...
                #endregion
            }
            else
            {
                #region do D
                ...
                #endregion
            }
            #endregion
            ...
            #region do E
            try
            {
                switch (some swicth)
                {
                    #region do F
                    case ...
                        break;
                    #endregion
                    #region do G
                    case ...
                        break;
                    #endregion
                    #region do H
                    case ...
                        break;
                    #endregion
                    #region do I
                    case ...
                        break;
                    #endregion
                }
                ...
            #endregion
        }
Of course with some extra try...catch inside the regions or other try...catch.
Well, at least, it looks like the functionality I need to transfer to the new application is - with the exception of some member variables - in that one single function, and not scattered all over the class... Wink | ;)
"Have you heard of 'Clean Code' by Robert C. Martin? You can download it from the web", said the guy who uses to write such functions.
