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.

Hmm. You have an interesting point of view. In the end, I think programmers like what they're used to.

In my case, I've been programming in C or C-derived languages since the mid 1980's, so I expect case-sensitivity as a matter of course. I was shocked when I read that Ada was case-insensitive, as I spent three years writing Ada at one point and didn't remember that (it was a loooong time ago).

Well, at least you're not one of those heathen scum who still advocate using K&R braces in preference to the vastly superior and esthetically perfect Allman brace style[^] ... Big Grin | :-D
