Bullshit.

Please read the thread again. And remember who it was who brought up the logical extreme of having no code at all. You wanted to take "golfed code" to an extreme. But golfed code always has a task to perform - if it doesn't perform that task, it's not correct. A program with no code, does not perform the given task. A photo editor that doesn't do anything isn't a bugfree photo editor that's missing a feature.

    I just did read it again. And here's how the subject came up. I said:"You missed the ultimate silly extreme.".

    That was sarcasm, that if you are going to go to silly extremes, you could have gone further.

    A photo editor that doesn't do anything ...

    No code isn't a photo editor. It isn't anything. As I already said, it isn't an "it" at all. There is no spec. No missing features. And no bugs.

    To bring this back to the subject, golfed code is a "silly extremes" argument to the preposition that less code means less bugs.


    Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.
    "Science is about questioning the status quo. Questioning authority".
    In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.

      No, you could not go further.

      Golfed code in no way implies reducing functionality. It should still do the same as the original code. It should still pass the test suite.

      That's obviously not true when you reduce your program to no code at all.

        No, you could not go further.

        Like I said: sarcasm.

        But at least we agree that using golfed code as a counter argument to the axiom: "that less code means less bugs", is a silly extreme.

        ...No, you could not go further...

        How about code that hasn't been written yet? Does that have any bugs in it?
