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is as follows : Any given program when running is obsolete.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