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.

Every engineering system should be in metric. Period. If you want to convert something to English - that's a presentation issue,
totally agree with that.

And I add...
Little vs Big Endian and similars. --> I have spent some time when looking for errors until I got used to make the check of inverting the significancy of the bytes when starting to work with two different systems I hadn't configured myself.

Signed vs unsigned values (most significant bit as the sign) --> You get to 32646, 32647 and then you see -1, -2, -3...

PLC String vs PC String --> PLC needs 2 bytes more "total length" and "used bytes" of current content (1st letter is String[2] position), having to transform to Array of Bytes to communicate

...
there are a lot of "funny" error sources out there

If something has a solution... Why do we have to worry about?. If it has no solution... For what reason do we have to worry about?
Help me to understand what I'm saying, and I'll explain it better to you
Rating helpful answers is nice, but saying thanks can be even nicer.
