Dealing with sloppy codeby BMaximus (Chaplain)
|on Nov 17, 2005 at 17:10 UTC||Need Help??|
Recently I became a part of the gainfully employed once again in the field of Perl programing. However as part of my work like some many others here I have to deal with code that others have written. Some of this code that I'm coming across is downright horrific right down to the flow of the program. I'd like to know how you deal with your coworkers sloppy code. Do you just bite your lip and do what you do best? Or do you let them know that although the code works as far as readablility and maintainablility the code they create is a monster worth its own B rated horror flick? Do you break it to them that they need to read the Perl Best Practices Book and take it to heart? How do you tell them if you do?
