in reply to Should I leave behind beautiful code or readable code?

To misquote Buckminster Fuller "If the code is not readable it is not beautiful". You can have both readable and beautiful code and that's what I believe we should all aim for- the single map version of your code given by a couple of earlier posters would match my criteria but depending on the context a comment *may* be helpful too.

"When I am working on a problem I never think about beauty. I only think about how to solve the problem. But when I have finished, if the solution is not beautiful, I know it is wrong." - Buckminster Fuller

[marto]: I guess most cities have areas similar to this, I tend not to mind personally, but would not go out of my way to head down that way
[marto]: it'll probably be fine.
[marto]: LanX: I appreciate that, it's honestly a difficult thing, a fine balance
[marto]: I'm sure it'll be fun :)
[marto]: of course I can take you to some of the best/worst bars in Glasgow ;)
[LanX]: is Glasgow that city where catholics and protestants fight in bars? ; )
[marto]: not really, but pick your side, we'll visit some real dumps
