Oh, I had a programmer returning stack pointers.
The third time he claimed it worked fine when he tested it (inside the debugger, duh),
I fired him. The fact that he could not comprehend that a stack is temporary on invocation of the function...

And that is part of the problem. People understand less and less. Coding used to be understand first, analysis, and development. Now it feels more like "crank out code"... And nobody realizes the how deep the problems are.

Then the often hidden fact: Development is only 20% of the budget. Maintenance is 80% over the long haul. So SIMPLE, CLEAN Code that is easier to maintain wins. When you need performance. Do that. Do it right with the right tools, and keep it clean and simple. And if it is unmanaged code, then you must run a memory analyzer/leak finder. Or your code is not properly tested!

Having worked on a project with 250K lines of code. They said it had a memory leak. A quick review of the code and I labelled it a Memory Sieve! The design guaranteed a leak! Nothing would be freed as children referenced their parents!
