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.

error checking is hard, especially in embedded systems. in 14 years of development, I have not yet heard of a cogent approach to how to fail creatively. That said, the *minimum* error handling should be a log message saying "you're f****" and why Smile | :) . Hopefully with some minimal thought, you can come up with a recovery approach...
