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, embarrassing 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.

I can't seem to find any documentation regarding the "@" being optional, but
much of my code has been written with this fact in mind. SqlClient.SqlCommand
knows to automatically prefix "@" for parameter names. I did come across this (see
"Working with Parameter Placeholders"), which indicates the parameter naming
varies per client. I wonder, then, if removing the prefix and letting the query
composer do the prefixing is the best way for the code to be cross-client
compatible.


That's an interesting point.
