I had reason to visit the web site of Rob Miles ( 'The C# Yellow Book' and 'Begin to Code with C#' ) http://www.robmiles.com/

Noticed his 'Thought for the Dazed'

... we had a long run of exercises where we were supposed to turn a flowchart in along with our applications. The whole class quickly discovered that we got marks deducted if the final version of our code didn't match our flowchart -- so we got our code working and then we wrote the flowchart to match the code.

Since I left school, I've had several code design tools proposed to me, many of them visual in nature (class design tools seem to be especially popular). Of all the tools that I've been introduced to, the one that has made the least sense to me is pseudo-code. In Visual Studio, I have a perfectly wonderful code editor that will work in any language … except, of course, for the language called "pseudo." It's never been clear to me why I would design my programs in some language that wouldn't compile when I can use a language that will compile.

I don't necessarily agree with the first point, but if you add the words "it seems ", the point is difficult to argue against :)

posting here for the lethargy to find somewhere more suitable to unload this ..


I've been working on some annotation and dimensioning stuff for most of the day

have been getting increasingly depressed.

determined why

the repeated usage of 'Dim' has been twisting my head around

Code - C#: [Select]
  1.  
  2.                        db.Dimstyle = dimStyleTable[newdimStyleName];
  3.                        DimStyleTableRecord tempDimSty = (DimStyleTableRecord)trans.GetObject(db.Dimstyle, OpenMode.ForRead);
  4.                        db.SetDimstyleData(tempDimSty);

I can imagine that being taken as a serious option.

Quote from: https://medium.com/@chuck_martin/its-just-software-386a8a167aa2
As a technical writer who has focused as much on the “technical” as on the “writing,” I came up with a phrase that describes my reaction when a programmer tells me something “can’t” be done: “Its just software.”

<..>

“Can’t” is shorthand. What it’s shorthand for depends. It could mean there’s no time to do the work. It could mean there are no resources to do the work. It could mean that the work does not provide enough value. (A reason that’s especially tough to hear when you’re trying to make a product better.) Heck, it could mean that the underlying system was designed so badly that there’s no way anyone wants to touch any of it because one light breath will make it all fall over like a Jenga tower.
What “can’t” almost never means is its literal meaning. A programmer almost always can, so when one says “can’t,” it becomes incumbent on us to translate.
