The Weird and The Wonderful

   

The Weird and The Wonderful forum is a place to post Coding Horrors, Worst Practices, and the occasional flash of brilliance.

We all come across code that simply boggles the mind. Lazy kludges, embarrassing mistakes, horrid workarounds and developers just not quite getting it. And then somedays we come across - or write - the truly sublime.

Post your Best, your worst, and your most interesting. But please - no programming questions . This forum is purely for amusement and discussions on code snippets. All actual programming questions will be removed.

As someone else mentioned, this is part of a message protocol definition. This struct was originally a single, unsigned 32-bit value called SendType which was indeed an enumeration. We've occasionally had the need to add features without removing the ability to handle older versions. This was one solution to the problem. Messages in the original format (which don't know about SendVersion) therefore have an appropriate SendType with a SendVersion of zero (0).
