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.

Try working on a limited stack-depth platform, such as the PIC16F1516 - your tune will quickly change when you hit the stack depth with your precious function calls. Without goto on that platform you'd be royally f***ed for anything more than the simple.

Tail recursion on a PIC: GOTO!
The worst thing about the darkness is the light at the end - DX-MON
