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 think it's similar to the old "bool-vs-enum" arguments that have been around for many years. An appropriately-named enum can certainly make the calling code easier to read than a bunch-o-bools, although it can lead to some interesting definitions[^]. Smile | :)

Given how recent the book is, I'm surprised the author hasn't progressed to record structs[^]; perhaps that will come later?
C#
public readonly record struct Speed(double Amount);
