I once had a colleague who believed in obfuscating his C code to the maximum. He did not add comments to his code or any documentation of any kind. I believe he thought if he was the only one to understand his code, it provided a kind of job security. Mad | :mad:
All went well for him until I was promoted into a position where he reported to me. One of my first actions was to fire him.
