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.

Found this in a sp, not sure why it was done this way, @fileLength and @userId are passed in, and i've changed the names of the tables so i could post this, so i realize the tables may not make sense(they do in the real code).

DECLARE file_Cursor CURSOR FOR SELECT Length
                                 FROM Files f
                                INNER JOIN User p
                                   ON p.UserId    = f.UserId
                                INNER JOIN Playlist pm
                                   ON pm.ListId = p.DefaultListId
                                WHERE p.UserId  = @userId
                                  AND pm.FileNumber <> -1

-- get total length
 OPEN file_Cursor 
FETCH NEXT FROM file_Cursor INTO @length
       
   WHILE @@FETCH_STATUS = 0
   BEGIN                                           
        SET @fileLength = @fileLength + @length   
                            
        FETCH NEXT FROM file_Cursor INTO @length
   END
             
CLOSE file_Cursor 
DEALLOCATE file_Cursor
