A few must watch videos on test driven development and unit testing

c# – What should I do when I am forced to write unreachable code? – Stack Overflow

Posted by jpluimers on 2014/09/09

Bosak posted an interesting piece of code on StackOverflow last year. His particular code was in C#, but it does not matter what kind of compiler you use:

Sometimes a compiler will complain about unreachable code, for instance when it thinks a function never returns a value.

But you know the program logic does.

Simple solution: When you have code that never should be reached: throw an appropriate exception.

public static int GetInt(int number)
    int[] ints = new int[]{ 3, 7, 9, int.MaxValue };
    foreach (int i in ints)
        if (number <= i)
            return i;

    return int.MaxValue; //this should be unreachable code since the last int is int.MaxValue and number <= int.MaxValue is allways true so the above code will allways return

The last return could be replaced like this, as proposed by Matt Houser: Read the rest of this entry »

.NET/C#: Interesting DocX library to create OOXML documents for Word

Posted by jpluimers on 2014/07/10

In case I need to export DocX in .NET again: DocX – Home.
