even like goto and reintrepret_cast, I agree. In soft and adequate doses.

comment How to explain that catch(…) is wrong?
@IdanArye until vs 2003, if compiled with /EH... flags WIndows Structured Exceptions (SE) can be caught in catch(...). I thought it was wrong but it is true for old visual studio versions.

comment How to explain that catch(…) is wrong?
@RobertHarvey I don't dare to ask it in StackOverFlow, because I fear it may be opion based. And that catch(...) may be an evil more general than a precise code question. That's my feeling.

@gnat My retort suggests that there is a greater root of all evil: Duplicated code.

comment Learning new concepts is an infinite loop. How do I go about it?
the man who wrote that line Integer.toString((byteData[i] & 0xff) + 0x100, 16).substring(1) didn't want you to understand. Otherwise he would have defined a little one line function having a pleasing human understandable name telling what the function does and taking an integer as input parameter returning a string.
