Real Programmers don't play tennis, or any other sport that requires you to
change clothes. Mountain climbing is OK, and real programmers wear their
climbing boots to work in case a mountain should suddenly spring up in the
middle of the machine room.
Real Programmers don't write specs -- users should consider themselves lucky to
get any programs at all and take what they get.
Real Programmers don't comment their code. If it was hard to write, it should
be hard to understand.
Real Programmers don't write in PASCAL, or BLISS, or ADA, or any of those pinko
computer science languages. Strong typing is for people with weak memories.
Real Programmers don't write in FORTRAN. FORTRAN is for pipe stress freaks and
crystallography weenies.
