in thread On comments

If you look above, I was very careful to say "(Most)"; and "Some comments are useful.".

My contention is that they are far rarer than most people believe. Please also see Programming *is* much more than "just writing code".

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.

    I didn't miss that. What I'm (also) trying to say is that (new) programmers have to learn along the way what comments are most useful 5 years from now. When you start programming, you have a really wrong approach in that aspect learned at school.

    Enjoy, Have FUN! H.Merijn
