If anyone needs any more grist for this mill, take a look at the jaw-droppers listed here. It's hard to believe some of these 'IT Professionals' are capable of breathing unassisted, never mind coding.

Dear Goddess, some of those stories are appalling. A 1.47M VB class with 309 instances of dead code (not counting two or three thousand lines of commented out code)? A 230-line Java method with a CCM of 150? A Java package named "mrpd.mrr"? A FORTRAN function with 292 arguments? I think I'm going to be sick again...

And if those aren't bad enough, check out The Daily WTF and Coding Horrors for some more true atrocities.

Today's Daily WTF once again demonstrates that no matter how simple the task, someone will find a way to make it ridiculously complicated.

I'm spending a lot of time this week marking programming assignments, which generates a lot of really bad code. Most of it is just newbie mistakes, but every now and then I get something LARTworthy. This one is a design choice. Well, not so much a design choice as a "whose code shall I copy?" choice.

The assignment was to use the Newton-Rahpson method to take a square root. (The only relevent detail is that it's an iterative process.) The students were required to provide both a manual "one iteration at a time" evaluation method and a partly automated "do N iterations for me" method. The standard way of doing this is having two text boxes (one each for the operand and the number of iterations to automate) and two buttons (one for a single iteration, one for N iterations).

One particular student had these two text boxes and both buttons. The "manual" button worked fine. The "automatic" button threw up an input dialog asking for the operand, ignoring the operand already given in the text box. Then it threw another input box asking for the number of iterations.

As far as I can make out he copied the manual code from one person and the automatic code from someone else. After marking this steaming pile of excrement, I went on to the next student -- who had exactly the same code (down to the typos and bad grammar in the interface) but randomly commented.

People, if you're going to steal code, steal code that *works*!
