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 are the ugliest C++ expressions that have you seen in the last few weeks/months


In no particular order[1]:
#include "stdafx.h"

IMPLEMENT_DYNCREATE(CMainFrame, CFrameWndEx)

BEGIN_MESSAGE_MAP(CMainFrame, CFrameWndEx)
    //{{AFX_MSG_MAP(CMainFrame)

    //}}AFX_MSG_MAP

    ON_COMMAND(ID_HELP, OnHelp)

END_MESSAGE_MAP()

CMainFrame::CMainFrame()

[1] Oh who am I kidding, it's Friday and I'm just going down a file and pasting in the order found.
Did you ever see history portrayed as an old man with a wise brow and pulseless heart, waging all things in the balance of reason?
Is not rather the genius of history like an eternal, imploring maiden, full of fire, with a burning heart and flaming soul, humanly warm and humanly beautiful?

Training a telescope on one’s own belly button will only reveal lint. You like that? You go right on staring at it. I prefer looking at galaxies.
