Program pogrom

 

Computer programming is no joke : that's how it seems to the uninitiated,

 

Insiders have a less reverent attitute,

 

They say that the First Law of computer programming

is as follows : Any given program when running is obsolete.

 

Second law : any given program costs more & takes longer eachtime it is run.

 

Third : If aprogram is useful,it will have to be changed.

 

Fourth : If a program is useless, it will have to be documented.

 

Fifth : Any given program will expand to fill all the available memory.

 

Sixth : The value of a program is inversely proportional to the weight of it output.

 

Seventh : Program complexity grows until it exceeds the capability of the programmer who must maintain it.
