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.

foreach(var item in 1..100)

That code won't work:
CS1579 foreach statement cannot operate on variables of type 'Range' because 'Range' does not contain a public instance definition for 'GetEnumerator'

And if you change it to iterate over a range of an array, the upper-bound is exclusive:
int[] numbers = Enumerable.Range(0, 20).ToArray();
foreach (int i in numbers[1..10])
{
    Console.WriteLine(i);
}

/*
Output:
1
2
3
4
5
6
7
8
9
*/
The start of the range is inclusive, but the end of the range is exclusive, meaning the start is included in the range but the end isn't included in the range.
