When you see this, it only takes a few extra seconds to think about what the dev intends.
But... Dead | X|
for (;!objSourceSubFolders.atEnd(); objSourceSubFolders.moveNext()) {
    // do something with the files in the folder.
}

First of all, not sure why you need to use Hungarian notation to signal that this is an obj.

But, more importantly, does the dev not know of the existence of the while loop? Or did he think this was an innovative approach? Sigh | :sigh:

Look how much simpler this is to read.
while (!sourceSubFolders.atEnd()){
    // do something with files in the folder
    sourceSubFolders.moveNext();
}


EDIT
This one is for all you people. You know who you are! Roll eyes | :rolleyes:
do {
    // do something with files in the folder
    sourceSubFolders.moveNext();
}
while (!sourceSubFolders.atEnd());
