comment In what stage of development should comments be written?
I'm half-repeating a lot of the answers here, so I won't make this a whole new answer, but the best time to write a comment is while you still remember why you're writing the code you're writing. A month, a week or even a day later you might not remember what was going on that forced you down a particular route.

comment Morse Code - Binary Tree
@AdegokeA: You're asking the same question as if you'd put "I've got an English to French dictionary, how can I use it to translate this French into English?" The tree you've got is a way of finding the letter if you have the morse code. You'll need a different structure to go the other way

comment Is the use of “utf8=✓” preferable to “utf8=true”?
@Lars Correct, it doesn't absolve you from having to check your input. But it does mean that encoding tweaks only become part of your security handling and don't taint the concept of your "standard processing" path

comment Copy-and-Pasted Test Code: How Bad is This?
Exactly. The steps "Refactor; parameterise" are often the best way to discover object classes that you've missed out of your design
