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.

not that I'm really arguing, but it looks like your code base between example 1 and 2 have the same level of complexity. And why use a goto to leave the loop when a break would work just fine? Maybe it's just the example.

My point in the original is that I have try/catch pairs all through the code, and nothing is done in the catch. No logging, no recovery, no ASSERTS, I mean nothing. If you're not going to handle the exception, just remove the try and let it crater Smile | :)
