You know you're in trouble when...



  • ...after 140 lines of code that appear to be at the same indentation level you find:

    ' snip 140 lines
    

    end if

    end if

    end if

    end if

    It's going to be a long day.



  • Wow...

    In my college programs I had a habit of putting the initial if condition in comments at the end of the if block.  It gets out of sync very rapidly, but it's indispensable in finding your logic errors.

    It might help here, and you can always remove them when you're done.

    Well it wouldn't be a problem if there was any indentation in the code whatsoever, but there is none. It's all on the same level.

    I remember writing ASP code in notepad.  When I switched to C#, I started out the same way until I finally got Visual Studio. Now, I don't think I could even code anymore without an IDE that auto formats (or has intellisense for that matter).

    ... or just Ctrl+K, Ctrl+D if you'd rather not lose which regions are collapsed.

    (Doesn't work in C# in VS2003 though for some reason.)

    Ctrl+A, Ctrl+I in eclipse if you just want proper indentation.

    Ctrl+F if you want all the code to be reformatted based on your workspace settings with fields, methods, constructors, statics, and imports all properly arranged.  ;) 



  • How about:

    Ctrl+A Delete

    ...why unravel a reel of s****, start again. 



  • Any good editor that supports "if ... end if" blocks should be able to
    autoformat the code. Any editor that doesn't totally suck ass that
    supports "if ... end if" blocks should at least be able to highlight
    the matching "if" keyword when the text cursor is in the "end if". There's nothing special about Visual Studio or Eclipse being able to do it.

    I worked on some code like that a few years ago.  To make matters much much worse, all the variables, class names, etc. were in German.  I didn't spend a whole lot of time on that project...

    Excactly! It's "VG=" in Vim... or "ggVG=" if your cursor isn't at the first line already.

    In some cases, when if blocks become longer than a few lines (and I'm too lazy or scared to refactor them), I repeat the comment what the if means at the end. For example,

    if humanity.aggression>humanity.sanity then  /* if the end of the world is near */
       ...
       (666 lines of code)
       ...
    end if; /* if the end of the world is near */
