in thread I go crazy with windows filenames with spaces!

Yes, as I have full control. I can make some mistakes but then I can debug and fix them.
Of course I mean scripts, applications made for myself. Professional coding in a huge company will depend on third party libraries/classes/modules although GOOD companies with strong background make their own libraries.

  • 1 example: see gaming industry; they don't buy graphic engines they create them from scratch
  • 2 example: we use reporting framework in our company and we were in trouble last year as the magnificent engine doesn't support 64 bit environment (and yes we paid for it lot of money)
    To sum up:
    • my own software is better if I am the author (I can write a module too),
    • even in professional world of developing it is better to create own libraries if the company can afford it

    Same goes for modules you didn't write. The difference is that you don't have to write the module in the first place.

    example: see gaming industry; they don't buy graphic engines they create them from scratch

    First of all, that's very far from the truth.

    Those that do write their own engines do so because 1) they need code that's highly optimised for their application, and 2) such code doesn't exist, in part because the hardware is always changing. Neither applies here.

    we use reporting framework in our company and we were in trouble last year as the magnificent engine doesn't support 64 bit environment (and yes we paid for it lot of money)

    How does that compare?
