Software Scares

2007-01-03

Category: General

For many years programmers have advocated using natural language words in their programs to make the software more readable. This is a good idea in general. The only real problem is that some programmers get a little odd. Their code takes on narrative qualities that aren?t necessarily intended for their customers.

Here?s an example:

public void Lawnmower() throws BunnyParts {
    if( this.mentalState == "disturbed" ) {
        throw new BunnyParts( "Die, bunny rabbits!" );
    }
} // end method Lawnmower()
