Refuse to compile the following code after the specified date.
#pragma moran(email address)
Emails the specified address every time there is a compilation error in any code that follows.
Tells the optimizer to go easy on the next bit.
Tells the compiler to do its worst; it hardly matters, the code is busted anyway.
Tells the compiler to shut up and compile. That’s your job, and that’s it. Your job is not to announce banners about compiler versions, or display company logos in blinking text, or declare with amazement (and a full line of “!!!!!!!!!” marks) that the compilation has finished with 0 errors, 0 warnings, 0 flatulent events, and 0 animals harmed.
If there are errors in the following code, arrange with the source code control system to blame it on some other checkin made by the specified user.
Dear reader, take a break, you have earned it.
This design was someone else’s idea, not mine. Don’t blame me.
If I were to do it, I’d write it this way. I feel like a total moron doing it that other way, but nobody listens and nobody appears to care. (Implementation-dependent side effect: The code is enabled when the project is cancelled).
