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.

Of course, but the built-in methods of System.Char (.net) don't suit my needs, so I rolled my own as is my wont.
I actually have a number of places where I have to roll my own character (or byte) classing solution to meet my requirements.
The "delimiter" class in particular depends on the type of file being read -- for JSON, the delimiters are { } [ ] : , ; for CSV they are , \r \n .
