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.

C#
static void Main(string[] args)
{
	String str1 = "http://toto.com/";
	String str2 = "http://toto.com‏/";
	bool eq = str1 == str2;
	Console.WriteLine(eq); //print false


	str1 = "http://toto.com/";
	str2 = "http://toto.com/";
	eq = str1 == str2;
	Console.WriteLine(eq); //print true
}


See for yourself, but copy the code, do not retype it. Smile | :)
I lost hair on this one, bug on an actual project for one customer.
But it is a nice trick to do to one of your most hated co worker if his computer is unlocked... Also works in configuration files. Wink | ;)
This is pure evil though.

[UPDATE] With some advice I found even more evil than that.

C#
"а" == "a" //false
