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.

The form suggested by the other response seems much more maintainable.


After perusing the thread, because it has been a minute, the only proposal that I am not already doing, or wouldn't make sense to do since it moves compile time actions to run time, was to leave the initial preprocessor macros, but those original preprocessor macros were never presented, so I'm confused as to how you could say it was more maintainable having never seen it.

Furthermore, it is not feasible to limit said preprocessor macros to a single file as doing so would increase maintenance since several processors with their own instructions are presented, each in its own header. To combine them would create a monolithic header that included every single build target. No.

Finally, unit testing this is not feasible, as I don't have the money to set up the hardware array necessary to unit test this across all build targets, nor the toolchain infrastructure necessary to make that doable, and would probably have to move away from using PlatformIO to do so anyway, which would make the effort required to do what I am doing snowball once I'm stuck with CMake builds using LLVM with gcc in funky ways. And even if I had the money, the time, and the software infrastructure to make that work, I don't have the physical space to set it all up.
