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.

A regex is kind of complicated for that. I prefer using my looping dual state state machine (state is just represented by the isQuote bool.

The technique i presented above is used in the latest GitHub bits of the project here:
Program.Base: Drop In Command Line Application Functionality for Your Projects[^]

It does: Command line parsing, using screen generation, error handling, file and argument object lifetime management, word wrapping (necessary for using screen anyway so i exposed it) stale file checking and progress reporting.

It's a drop in file with no dependencies, and is targeted to .NET Framework as well as the newer stuff. (I have two files for it but the only difference between them is the .NET Framework (DNF) file does not have #nullable disable at the top, which shuts up nullable reference type warnings in the newer C#. You just pick the one you need.

If you can get it approved by your work you're more than welcome to it. I developed it because I got sick of writing essentially the same code over and over again.

This is less work than that System.CommandLine stuff, and does more.
