Oi

I've been working with someone else's code, trying to whip it into better shape. Rather than bore you all with the details of programming and how wretched and convoluted the code is, I'll just treat you to this little tidbit. This is the header to a section of code I'm about to debug. The header is intended to explain the following code's intent. Keep in mind that this person wasn't really a programmer, just someone who thought he could do it.

'this procedute populates the loadfile_clientinformaiton table and replaces the
' origional procedure. This version uses sql updates to load the table in a more
' efficient manor.

This little paragraph is actually written better than most of the code.
Am I being petty? Perhaps, but it can be quite frustrating trying to follow his "logic" and mold it into a more efficient, working condition.
