Actually, a couple of examples I can think of produced really great code
(other examples not so much). That works really well except now no-one
other than the original programmer can understand it without any
comments. Especially a mere mortal like myself. Which is a problem when
requirements change and it needs to be modified. I'm lucky in that the
piece I'm looking at is small. I've given up trying to work out how to
weave my changes into the existing code and am rewriting it into more
straight forward code, and less "magic", that may not be as good so that
it reflects what is now needed.
