Comment on “Problem 11”
Description :

The first step here in finding problems in the code is to identify the problem the code is trying to solve. The discussion in the C Vu article is basically about curiosities in the way in which the C++ standard library std::istream is defined, but I will make the perhaps unwarranted assumption that what the problem the code is really about is not the uses of std::istream, but rather, more generally, how to write a read routine that can effectively and safely capture data from an input stream. Actually as the first problem below illustrates neither of these issues can be effectively addressed without the other.

Comments Considered Evil
Description : We are taught that adding comments to code is a good thing and adds value. In practice this value is seldom, if ever, realised. Mark Easterbrook makes the case for a better way.

Comments Considered Good
Description : In our last issue, we offered the case against comments; in this issue, William Fishbourne responds in defence. He argues that it is not the practice of commenting that it is evil, it is the thoughtless commenter.
