in reply to On commenting your code
in thread No Comment
I agree wholeheartedly.
I'd like to clear up one issue though...
My gripe comes as a long suffering maintenance programmer. Who, likewise, for the last
nearly 20 years I have spent a great deal of time working on existing code
covering many languages rather than the far less often 'writing shiny new
stuff'. It's the comments in these old routines that I always view with suspicion.
'I think the problem lies in the fact that your data
doesn't fit my program'.
