The word 'despicable' is a moral judgment. Given that they invented the brace style at the same time they invented the C programming language, and tabs were 8 spaces wide because of teletypes and other such hardware, a little bit of understanding might be in order.
Might have been me under an old account. I remember vehemently defending Allman a couple of years back, after deep diving a few enormous legacy codebases for a consultancy gig.
The speed at which I can parse large volumes of code when it's Allman is much higher, all because of the visual clues that are tied in with the control logic. I'm mostly scanning the control logic by identation, only sparsly reading evaluations along the way.
First, let me say that those who use their lawn, sand, corncobs, a garden hose, or similar devices need not read on.
For the rest of us, I was wondering about something. Not long ago I had a multi-roll package of bathroom tissue (toilet paper, ass-wipes, &etc) that lacked perforations. The papers grain runs the long way, along the length of the roll, which added a minor challenge to tearing off an aliquot for its designated task. Now, thankfully, things are back to normal.
Question to ponder:
As prices vary by location, perhaps give a a percentage of the cost/roll, but how much extra would you pay for a roll if perforations were optional (vs. tearing or having a shared scissor at hand).
OK - it's crazy and off the wall (pun intended) of a question, but life's full of little things (another pun) in the background that make things go smoother.
Cobol? In 2021? What kind of college-in-my-bedroom are they attending?
