Tracing the flow of data, or the sequence of events when for example the user clicks a button, has turned out to be impossible.

Nicely deep, and long enough to read to put off doing real work for a while!

comment What to do about “stopping point syndrome”?
You cannot leap the grand canyon in two shorter jumps. It makes good sense to land on a stable point, whatever length of time it takes, mindful of the constraints of practical healthy living.

"One piece at a time" might work on other projects, but this has so many classes derived from others, friend classes, pointers to each other's innards, there are few parts that can be understood independently.

Good point, about x-y aligned rectangles. I had in mind that, and also extents as used in 3D modeling, and some other things, but all x-y (maybe also -z) aligned.

comment Do you write titles in code comments?
The "what" is good to know, and often isn't obvious from looking at the code. These comments make the overall intent clear.

Definitely on topic for me! So what if the question might be worded a little to general and could apply to more than programmers?
