I agree with you on this, in every detail. Especially if the maintenance programmers comments are of one of the following forms:

  • ## See rt #1234
  • ## See perlmonks node: 123456
  • ## See change log item buk 08-05-2007
  • ## A new element (TIME_OF_DAY) was added to the array
  • ## See file DB_object for a description of the elements of the array
  • ## The data is denormalised (fields are duplicated) for efficiency.

That's just a few that come to mind.

Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.

In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.
