|At present the US Code of Federal Regulations is perhaps the buggiest code ever written. The CFR has yet do deal with issues of legacy code and has probably never been refactored. Ever. There are numerous conflicts within the code that lead to the legal equivalent of a SigAbrt, without the benefit of an error log. The return values also vary wildly and, in many instances, are in direct conflict with the intended results of the various classes and methods within the code base.|
If you, as a coder, were handed the CFR to debug and refactor, how would you do it? Also, could you create unit tests to verify the algorithms are producing the desired return values within the framework of that much legacy code?
