A few years ago I came across this poem. A must to have in any large project.
// Pointers to pointers to printf()-like functions,
// Unary minus and nested conjunctions,
// Integers, booleans, characters, strings,
// These are a few of my favorite things!
// Encapsuled functions with routines embeded.
// Parallel process to run multi-threaded.
// Routines that lighten the processor load.
// This is just some of my favorite code!
// /* When the bug bites! When the core dumps!
// when the code is bad.
// I simply remember my favorite things,
// and then I don’t feel so mad. */
// API reference and good indentation.
// Pointers to strings that have null-termination.
// Callbacks to functions of referencing strings.
// These are a few of my favorite things.
// malloc() and calloc() and database files.
// Error-free coding that always compiles.
// Arrays of structures and quick file sort.
// These are my favorite things to import!
// /* When the link fails! When the code bombs!
// When it won’t execute.
// I simply compile my favorite things
// and then I can go Re-boot! */
I tried googling who the author is, but couldn’t find this particular poem.
If anyone knows who the author is please let me know so credit can be added.
