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.

I would also group the break keyword with goto:

C#
public static void renameSchedule(string currentName, string newName)
{

    foreach (schedule sched in Schedules.lst)
    {

        if (sched.scheduleName.Trim().ToUpper() == currentName.Trim().ToUpper())
        {

            sched.scheduleName = newName;
            break;

        }

    }

}


After all it is jumping out of the looping logic - I use this a lot...

I was taught never to use a goto at university, probably because it would mess up all those nicely drawn diagrams we were creating before we wrote any code, then in the final year when we were doing advanced(cough cough) COBOL programming we were told that there was one instance where we could use it...
