    There is NO WAY to tell what's going on with code like that. I'm assuming the programmer was either a) a retarded monkey, or b) never had to look at it again.

    Now that I think of it there is a c) paid by the line!

    Well, considering the only time COUNT* variables are read are on the last line, I don't think arrays are useful at all. friggin use a single COUNT!

  • FDF (unregistered)

    Using an array would make this code even WTFier

  • Vilx- (unregistered)

    No, no, no! Arrays would simply not do! This something COMPELETELY DIFFERENT! Common! Array define all indexes from X to Y. Unless you're in Javascript or PHP where they are actually hashtables, so that's something COMPLETELY DIFFERENT again. But here - we don't need all the indexes! See - 16, 42, 47 and 50 through 98 are missing! Arrays would just not cut it!

  • jonnyq (cs)

    Umm ok... so the given code is a grep on the word "count", so the code might make more sense in context and may even be commented, and I don't know what language this is, so I don't know what the right way would be...

    1 cent wager, this is Ingres/4GL code ?

    Ingres 6.2

    • No arrays
    • No Globals
    • No shit!

    Once made a simple app to plan working hours for a field X type of a companies. Ruffly 40% of our customer base was still using ingres 6.2 because the license upgrade was very costly. So in order to make things easy, we couldnt use any "high tech" features like erm.. Arrays that where introduced in 6.4..

    So the initial codebase was something like 15K lines ..

    After ingres dropped their licensing fees and we where able to ship linux, rewrote the whole thing to 2k rows - just by eliminating if/else's into big loops =)

    If the language allows long strings, has capabilities to input/out numbers as text, and a substring function, then you can usually simulate arrays by defining a fixed field length and using a multiply to access the desired term.

    It gets really tricky if you have only short strings, e.g. 255 characters, you need to come up with some very efficient packing mechanisms. Modulus is your friend.

    If you're not pressed for performance, and the language has file I/O capabilities, you can simulate an array through file operations using fixed record lengths. This can be very inefficient if you have to iterate through [n - 1] records to get to the nth record.

    This is basically the design philosophy of those old array-less languages, you read in a record from input, processed it, then printed to output. Back then you might have only a few K of memory, so arrays were a luxury. You designed such that you didn't use them.

    My current job I started out w/ BBx - where all variables are global and declarations are strictly optional. I thought that was bad. Old, crappy languages used for legacy software is no excuse to do stupid things.

    If this is a legacy item, and that's how it had to be done, fine. If it has to be maintained, there is no reason to keep it. Throw that crap out and rewrite it using SOME best practice. ANY best practice. Something.

    I just want to cry when I see things like that, though. What the hell is Count37 supposed to be? HUH? Who the hell can keep all that crap in short-term memory and actually do something useful? Huh? WTF? Just stupid.

    I have to say that when I first learned BASIC (back in the chisel-it-into-rock days) string arrays were not available on the HP2000. I remember how much in awe us "average" programmers were of the ones who were talented enough to actually alphabetize a list of words!

    Due to the brevity of today's story I found myself substituting some of the words to come up with another story with the same moral:

  • General Failure (unregistered)

    This is not about arrays at all. As others have insinuated,

    COUNT[34] += NO.ITEMS

    isn't much better. Second improvement:

    COUNT[ITEMS] += NO.ITEMS

    is starting to get there, but you still need to hardcode that 34 somewhere:

    ITEMS=34

    and we all know hardcoding is verboten. Soooo...

    Just open a simple connection to a back end database where you can read ('ITEMS', 34) from an array definition table, and you're set!

    Despite only being a list of search results it is easy to tell this is a horrific bit of code. At first I would have liked a bit more context but now I've thought about it I actually quite like the idea of only showing the results of a keyword search. Remember "Representative Line"? Maybe we could have some "Representative Grep" articles, highlighting how crap a piece of code is purely by showing the search results for a single keyword. Could be interesting.
