I would say voting systems have a higher standard than the majority of other applications. In that case, your point holds some water for me. For almost every other application, though, your standards strike me as extremely unrealistic. You're free to hold yourself to these rules, but using them as a measuring stick for others is going to lead to a lot of disappointment.

[RonW]: I see useless errors liek that from Perl programs, too.
[tye]: well, you certainly don't see strack traces with all of the values removed from Perl.
[thezip]: Howdy RonW. Not in *my* logfiles you won't!
[tye]: and I never claimed anything about 100% on either side.
[RonW]: Presumably because the coders didn't realize that die and warn will append line number and file when the message strings doesn'r end with a line terminator
[tye]: And these are popular and not new python projects.
[thezip]: I had a user complain that they didn't receive an email from one of my processes. I went to the logfile and reproduced the entire contents of the email they would have received. Not my problem.
[tye]: How the heck does a web framework get popular when an unexpected exception gets logged as just "Exception" w/ no details?
[RonW]: There have been times when some one has modified my Perl code and decided to "clean up" my error/warning messages for me by adding line terminators
[RonW]: Because the coders using them like them despite the lack of useful error/warning messages
