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.

Deep recursion could potentially stand to be replaced with a goto.

The problem as others have mentioned is that it has been heavily abused. And since it usually would only be needed under a limited set of circumstances it's better to just make it off-limits unless someone can make a compelling case for its use.
