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 once worked with a programmer 28 years ago who was approaching retirement. We worked on an accounts receivable/payable system together. He did all of the backend calculations in exactly the same format as step 1. If I remember correctly even his function names were single letters of the alphabet. I think I would have done at least step 2. I thought it was the simplest code you could possibly write. Back then there was no intellisense so we just documented our code thoroughly! I don't see any value in step 3 or 4. Seems like unnecessary layers of code.
