Holy Programming

- - 1 comment
While looking for some Python codes using Google Code Search (beta), I got bored and remembered an article entitled “F*cking programming”. --A search query using profane words revealed the evil and yet the funny side of the people behind the codes. So, I began to wonder and think of the opposite side or character of programmers. I searched for “God”.

The results were quite surprising. Here are some of them:

/* My caller (my_socketpair) has validated that this is non-NULL */
fd[0] = sockets[0];
fd[1] = sockets[1];
/* I hereby declare this connection open. May God bless all who cross
her. */
return 0;

// God save me from this evilness. Below is a very bad
// function. Its out var is really a nsIComponentManagerObsolete
// but it has been cast to a nsIComponentManager.
// The reason for such uglyness is that this function is require for
// backward compatiblity of some plugins. This funciton will
// be removed at some point.

/* Is this portable? Dear God, spare me from the non-eight-bit
characters. But is it tasteful? */

# this is done to make sure we aren't duplicating a path (let God sort them out)
if (defined $self->get_root_node) {

#God knows how to handle these... bless them in the RR class.
bless $self, $class;
return $self

/* Restart processing. God knows what's in the new absolute path */
start = __real_path;
end = strpbrk(__real_path, "/\\");

Note: As far as I know, there is nothing like home directory for
the M$ hell. God help the Win95/WinNT users of NSUserDefaults ;-)

// It seems that even for selection of type "None",
// there _is_ a parent element and it's value is not
// only correct, but very important to us. MSIE is
// certainly the buggiest browser in the world and I
// wonder, God, how can Earth stand it?

// If SysMem is TRUE, the image should go into system memory. If it is
// FALSE, we will try for video memory. And may God walk at our side in

That's why I call it, Holy Programming!

  1. Great post Jun. This goes to show that some programmers still trust God more than than the programs that they made :)
