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.

It probably is. My C/C++ skills are very rusty and I was just trying the quickest way to return a string and found that type. Sorry for the inconvenience.
I didn't want to install Visual Studio on my machine so I'm using Visual Studio Code and MinGW.
I kind of blindly stumbled my way through to get that code working. Blush | :O
