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.

Found an interesting feature in Microsoft Dynamics Ax 2012 R2:
static void Job40(Args _args)
{
    smmBusRelTable              bus;
    int                         i;
 
    select count(RecId) from bus where
        bus.BusRelAccount == bus.TopLevelAccount
    ;
 
    info(strFmt("From count: %1", bus.RecId));
 
    i = 0;
    while select bus where
        bus.BusRelAccount == bus.TopLevelAccount
    {
        i++;
    }
 
    info(strFmt("bus.BusRelAccount == bus.TopLevelAccount: %1", i));
 
    i = 0;
    while select bus where
        bus.TopLevelAccount == bus.BusRelAccount
    {
        i++;
    }
 
    info(strFmt("bus.TopLevelAccount == bus.BusRelAccount: %1", i));
}

Running the job results in this output:
From count: 31597
bus.BusRelAccount == bus.TopLevelAccount: 1
bus.TopLevelAccount == bus.BusRelAccount: 31597
