comment What is the difference between requirements and specifications?
I see your point, but I think either angle adequately describes the situation. I took the view that a customer would be purchasing a product - as you do when you go to a shop. A software vendor would then be offering their solution to the underlying problem. If I was to go out shopping for a solution to my problem, I would probably think, "I need a product that does xyz", not, "I need a solution to my problem of abc". It's just a matter of preference I think.

+1,000,000 You have effectively ended this debate between Yes and No by tying in the concept of open source. If no-one shared their code (which inevitably will be done through trial and error from people's work experience) then we would not have open-source software, which is so dearly loved.

@tp1, ok, if it's specific to some kind of software then I see your point; because that could be interpreted as "domain specific", i.e, "why else would you write this code"

@tp1 Hold up, what if the objective of function x() is so specific and useful that there aren't that many ways to write it? In that case, how can you keep it separate if the implementation is so similar?

Agreed, but what about sub-libraries that are not simply a few minutes worth of code? Classes for accessing databases, building files, etc? True though that rewriting improves code
