|What are examples of code that ever programmer should have read and analysed because they show a particularly deep insight into the problem, a creative attempt at a solution or otherwise outstanding proficiency?|
Goal is to learn something from excellent pieces of code, much like it is practised in art by studying Old Masters, pieces of literature or musical compositions.
PS: I admit to exaggeration in the headline / first paragraph ("should have") btw ;)
