I try to cover the first two by the Introduction and then I flesh it out while adding the 3rd in "Conceptualizing this Mess" (my typical Background section)

In this case I went with a slightly different format than my usual and I also detailed major methods under different sections like "Navigation" and "In-Memory Trees"

I think that may put people off though as it's a lot to scroll through before the "Coding this Mess" section where I take the abstract stuff and make it concrete.

For me I like to put comments in the code in my articles because it's easier to "fisk" my own code line by line with comments, rather than directing the reader to the comments in the paragraph below. There I like to summarize what I did in the code. I find people seem to receive that well. But YMMV. Smile | :)
