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.

To be fair, this was the beginning of the example, but the main thing you get is the compiler can check the type and warn you that you are using the wrong type.
This also means the code is quite a bit more explicit about what it wants so a future dev who may have thought, "hmm....wonder why orig-dev wanted a double when a float would do" would be guided away from such a thought since there is a specific type.
That's all I got. Smile | :)
