comment What do you consider the 1st principle(s) of programming?
@kirugai: lol, i expected it to get a few down votes (okay as long as it makes some tired programmer smile)... what i did not expect was for it to get three up votes.

comment What do you consider the 1st principle(s) of programming?
@kigurai: I was nowhere close to being serious when I gave that answer. Though it IS a common trap, its hardly a guiding principle. Its like saying "Dont drive the car off the cliff" should be the first principle of driving.

What I'm saying is, that its easy for a good programmer to go back and selectively use his "lessons" as applicable. But once you tell a newborn that its okay to have infinite loops "sometimes", (s)he will think every situation falls in that 1% where infinite loops are allowed.

Even video game loops have to terminate sometime. (I dont know, im not one) Also, programming is sort of like playing a guitar. Once you are 1337 enough (which you would be if you were a game dev), ignore the basics and let the instincts talk.
