How programmers comment their code
@ebel they had to make sure everyone understood somehow!
.@ebel also: “Warning: Public method is missing XML comments.”
@ebel Those are very good comments. Usually by the time I run across comments, they have nothing to do with the code they comment anymore.
@DerDackel probably new comments
@ebel wait a minute - there is a "description" for *every* physical button. This is way too complete!
@mray linters! They have flagged up every button for comments so the coder does it. 🙂
@ebel More like how you comment when you have to comment no matter what.
@ebel that's unrealistic. One of the buttons should not have a description at all, and one of the buttons should have a description that describes a completely different button.
@tonnerre maybe it's new comments, which haven't bitrot yet
@ebel or: what you achieve by product standards - today: documentation
@ebel no no no I don't agree on that sentence
@ebel Good code shouldn't have comments, right? XD
@c0de "the code is the comments"
i++ // increment i by 1
@ebel OK TO BE FAIR
@ebel bonus: no translation needed!
How very sassy
# up-doots good toots
$self = shift;
$toot = $self.getToot();
# check goodness of toot
if ( $toot.isGood() )
$toot.upDoot( $self.user );
