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.

Laugh | :laugh:

I have a colleague at work whose Classes kind of look like that...

VB
Public Class MyClass


   Sub DoSomething

      ' This code is to... (obvious comments)

      Dim i as Integer ' (actual code here)

      ' Assign a value to the integer (more obvious comments)

      i = 10


   End Sub



   Sub NextMethod

      ' etc.


   End Sub





End Class


That's at least one white line between each line of comment/code. It is also the kind of comments you don't want to see (assign value... No sh*t, Holmes!). Between the last lind of code and End Sub/Function are usually two or three empty lines of code. Between each Method can be three to five lines of white space and between the last Method and the End Class can be up to seven(!) white spaces (I've analyzed his code pretty deep Smile | :) ). Also notice the lack of access modifiers? I asked him about that and they were all meant to be Private... It's just lazyness on his part to not make those Methods Private like they are meant to be! Sniff | :^)
Luckily there aren't usually more than 300 to 400 lines of code (including empty lines) so I guess I shouldn't complain to hard Laugh | :laugh:
It's an OO world.
C#
public class Naerling : Lazy<Person>{}
