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.

There are a number of shorthand changes (but little innovation) that have been made to C# over the years that are of limited or questionable value. It is a good idea to test out these shorthand C# changes, then look at what the compiler does with them by looking at the generated MSIL. As one example, having done that, it is why I no longer use "using" for IDisposable objects.

If you like a particular shortcut, use it. But my advice is to at least know what the compiler does with it. In the case of the OP, just make your own Main() and go with it.
