However, a couple years ago, I inherited a large VB project that was littered with them. As if trying to figure out the generic flow of a large program wasn't bad enough, they had to throw that in there too. Bastards.
mmm. and not to mention that you've got to LOVE that "on error goto shit" error handling syntax because, ya'know, THAT was a good idea.
Even better: Most of the error handling was 'on error resume next'
I mean, WTF!? That shouldn't be an option. If shit goes wrong, you don't just keep going! What if it's critical?
You gloss over it, I guess.
VB: Like, divide by zero? ALRIGHT! /action snaps gum
VB: Whoah. There's like, totally nothing there nownstuff! Grrrross! Do you, like, want me to use msgbox, ersomthing, because, like, I think that'd totally be cool nstuff if you do! Hereyago!
Me: Uhm, not really. /action click
VB: Oh, like, bytheway, that totally wasn't supposed to be a zero in, like, the first place and, like, the stuff, ersomthing, is like, totally written finenstuff. I, uh, uhdunow. Maybe you should, like, copy and, like, paste it, ersomething, into one of those new project thingies to see if, like, that doesn't fix it, ersomthing.
VB: Oh, and, like, yea, I was, like, supposed to tell you that, uh, like, that nothing there thingie is, like, uh, a good way to make me quit unexpectedly, so kthxbye.
