OK; I confess

Follow-up to The value of being explicit…. from Colin's blog

OK, OK: the original code actually used a Map instead of a Set.

For some reason I never used Set's; I would always use a Map and then Map.contains().

It is only in the last few years I started using a Set.

There, go and laugh now :)

I don't know; you just can get the senior staff nowadays :)

Come one; share the fun; what cringeworthy things do you do?

  3. Not sure why; but I think this is actually more common that people would admit; we are not alone :)

  4. It may not be relevant to programming, but I'd class writing "Set's" as cringeworthy, unless you're referring to a thing owned by the Egyptian god, or someone else of the same name.

  5. Colin; you are right. It isn't relevant to programming.
