Code as poetry

"Kavidhai variyin is suvai, artham puriyum varai" – Vairamuthu

I can't more agree with Vairamuthu, you can enjoy the poetry till you can make sense of it. I think the same holds true for programmers code. The following code is a snapshot from EFY's software section. Check out if it makes sense or not.

C code snippet from EFY:



struct time t;

int a,b,c,e=0,f=0,g=0,h=0,m=25,x,y,z=0,button;






a = a-12;




a = 12;








The code is absolut beauty as it satisfies Vairamuthu's rule!

Now how far can one take metaphor in software development. Check this out. Its from General Magic.

The ultimate desktop!
