About the CodeSOD category
Code Snippet of the Day - self-submissions for code snippets that shouldn't really exist.
Please remember to anonymise your snippet if there's a danger it could be traced back to you or the source of the snippet, and to do so would be a Bad Idea™.
Suggestions for doing so include
- change the wording of any comments in the code
- rename variables and non-system functions. Using metasyntactic variables may help if it doesn't detract too much from the WTFness of the code. Otherwise pick a suitable synonym and substitute that instead.
- change any string literals in the code.
Also, please remember that not everyone is necessarily fluent in/can recognise the language that your code is in (not necessarily everyone here is a programmer!) - mention the language.
And for the less intuitive among us, explain what the WTF is with the code.
And remember that you signify code by indenting with four spaces.
