programmers are a race
of programmers who set out to write unreadable
, unmanagable code
in an effort to spite their company and fellow employees. They tend to use a few tactics very often, they are:
1) Bad indentaion
if (1==x) x++;
Tis gives an illusion that the first if is matched with the else but its not. This is evil.
2) the same variable
names with different capitalization
These look the same but that damn "I" screws you up
3) They use capital "O" and zero interchangably:
Try reading this especially if your font makes them look exactly the same;
4) they make long
long variable names so you have to cut and paste;
5) They make variables with names like "dummy" which are very important.
6) They use nest
ed ternary operators instead of if statements becuase they are harder to read.
var? var1? var4:var5 : var3? var6:var7
7) they never comment
and when they do comment they make up comments that don't descibe what is happenning or point you in the wrong direction
8) They write all their numbers in binary so you have to calculate their values.
: I take no resposibilty if you decide to become an evil programmer and use these tactics on your fellow employee.
