in reply to How do you critique another person's code?

This sort of problem is quite common. Here's some code that appeared in comp.lang.perl.misc today:

if($match) { (($rank = @ranks[0]) && ($percent = "1%")) if $value == 1; (($rank = @ranks[1]) && ($percent = "2%")) if $value == 2; (($rank = @ranks[2]) && ($percent = "3%")) if $value == 3; (($rank = @ranks[3]) && ($percent = "4%")) if $value == 4; (($rank = @ranks[4]) && ($percent = "5%")) if $value == 5; (($rank = @ranks[5]) && ($percent = "6%")) if $value == 6; (($rank = @ranks[5]) && ($percent = "7%")) if $value == 7; (($rank = @ranks[6]) && ($percent = "8%")) if $value == 8; (($rank = @ranks[7]) && ($percent = "9%")) if $value == 9; (($rank = @ranks[8]) && ($percent = "10%")) if $value == 10; } $seniority = "$rank. ($percent)\n";
This always reminds me of the story of the Cobol programmer who was paid by the line.
