literal (figurative) acid test (from the inform 7 test suite)


when the comments neglect to explain how the code actually works

(to be clear: not trying to rag on Inform. this is a tiny, isolated example in a vast codebase, and it is not representative of the whole)

@magical ... I'm trying to figure out why this is in an adventure game engine in the first place

@magical what beautiful source code, thanks for finding these fragments

@magical It took me almost 3 sentences to realize I wasn't reading Inform 7 code (it's been a few years)
