Looking for ugly code comparisons WAS: Slashdotter looking for kids' programming language

Hi,

It's easy to come up with ugly code in any language, the trick is to  
make beautiful code in *any* language. Out of the many programming  
languages I've used, I've come across lot of *very* ugly code, and  
ugly code is ugly code whatever language, however, ugly code in  
RunRev is far far uglier than in any other language I've used for a  
number of reasons.

It's seem like clutching at straws and verging on being deceitful to  
make RunRev look good by showing how bad other languages can be,  
while at the same time keeping quiet about how ugly RunRev code can be!

All the Best
Dave
