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.

Says the person trying to convince me that a using block swallows exceptions, whilst showing no evidence of it doing so. D'Oh! | :doh:

The unit test for the "using" statement took 28 ms, while the standard use took 18 ms.

So code with different behaviour, compiled in a debug build, has approximately 10ms difference in your tests?

Aside from the issue of micro-optimisation - any extra overhead from the using construct will be dwarfed by the cost of your real code - a unit test is not suitable for micro-benchmarks. You need to "warm up" your code, then measure performance over thousands of runs to get a meaningful result. Try using BenchmarkDotNet[^] to measure the code instead.

And while you're at it, fix your tests so that you're comparing the same - or at least comparable - code. Change your "standard" test to:
C#
public void StandardUsageTest()
{
    try
    {
        DisposableClass test = null;
        try
        {
            test = new();
            try
            {
                String result = test.WhoIsIt();
            }
            catch (Exception ex)
            {
                Assert.Fail($"INNER: {ex.Message}");
            }
        }
        finally
        {
            test?.Dispose();
        }
    }
    catch (Exception exOuter)
    {
        Assert.Fail($"OUTER: {exOuter.Message}");
    }
}
