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.

What object oriented language does not have classes? I was never able to find one.

I should have been more careful in my criteria. I was referring to the amount of code use and not lines written. Consider much of Windows and its applications are based on C++. Also consider Windows used to hold a near monopoly on operating systems. I still think C++ is used most often in the Microsoft environment. That may be changing as C# gains hold and Windows loses more of its monopoly. As far as lines written I would not even venture to guess that.

Also, do not confuse C with C++. I am sure C under any criteria is the most used language.
So many years of programming I have forgotten more languages than I know.
