Math, physics, perl, and programming obscurity.

very deceptive indenting.

Posted by peeterjoot on October 16, 2012

Check out the following mismatched indenting (counting carefully if it doesn’t stand out obviously … it didn’t to me) :

#ifdef SQLUNIX
   #ifdef OSS_AIXPPC
      #ifdef OSS_ARCH_P64
         #define SQLO_SHR_OBJECT "(shr_64.o)"
         #define SQLO_SHR_OBJECT "(shr.o)"

The ending #endif was actually 550 lines away in the file!

    That’s one of the reasons why Python’s indentation rules look better to me every day 🙂
