Coincidentally, I was tripping through a large C++ program (about 100,000 LOC) to make some relatively minor enhancements. The original architect(s) of this program did a fantastic job of using all the features of C++ including lambdas, auto's, executable code in header files, virtual functions, just to name a few.

The frigging code was terribly difficult to follow!

But what was the major hindrance was the exorbitant use of getters/setters between classes. A lot of the code looked like:

bool Var;
.....
bool ClassName::isVarSet() 

{ 

return Var; 

}

using 6 lines on the screen. Alwfully tough to read and comprehend.

Caused me to start hating C++.
