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.

I've made some kind of mistake Frown | :( "Copypasting" is evil Smile | :) . As MSDN ( http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/398ax69y.aspx ) claims, rand() function returns a pseudorandom integer in the range 0 to RAND_MAX (32767). So, the preferable way is to use the following "working code":

#define REALLYTRUE 1
#define REALLYFALSE 0
#define TRUE (rand() > (32762/2) ? REALLYTRUE : REALLYFALSE) // happy debugging losers

P.S. If to compile this code:
#define TRUE (rand() > 0.1 ? TRUE : FALSE) // happy debugging losers
we will have an error like:
c:\temp\win32\randex\randex.cpp(19) : error C2065: 'TRUE' : undeclared identifier
But using the new version of code it will be "all right" Laugh | :laugh:
