(** This post was inspired by a recent post I read where a reply suggested the indenting of all code.)
I am guilty of this, I'll be honest. I know it is important to indent and indent properly, it is industry standard, and it is simply utilitarian.
I always think: "Well, I'll do that at the very end to all my files when the prog is complete." and I do, but, for instance, when I post here it would be much nicer for everyone to read and analyze including myself.
I had a influencial programming professor (Dept. Chair, actually) who would say:"Indenting? Nah, that's a waste of time-- I don't care if its all pretty. It just matters that it runs." And, of course, all the students listened to him on this matter (as opposed to the ultra-strict professor who graded heavily on indentation).
I wish to learn proper indentation practices and have them become a part of my real-time coding, as I write code, not as an end project before I finalize the build.
What do you think? I would like to hear all opinions on this subject, helpful hints, and suggestions.
