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.

The 8207 is the character that has a graphical image of "/"


You are wrong this has nothing to do with "/"
Here is the same bug without "/" but with 8207.

C#
String str1 = "test";
String str2 = "test‏";


Moreover, a char is not ASCII but a 16 bit unicode character, contrary to C/C++.
