Maybe you haven't debugged enough "other people" code in your time as a developer... there's a certain knack to weeding out logic failures :)

That could very well be. I don't usually debug other people's code and seldom have clients want me to do so. I usually have clients who present a problem and then I solve it -- thus, all original code.

Several yeas ago, I had one client who had considerable prior work done and I found myself rewriting everything at a cost of many weeks of my non-billable time. I won't be doing that again.

It also helps to use proper indentation and bracing format as illustrated by all my code examples so that you can more easily see where problems lie >:D


Ain't that the truth!

We are almost identical in our formatting.

I've found that when I run into someone who has similar ideas as I have, they are usually very intelligent. :-)
