I'm a .NET developer working primarily in C#. I also enjoy photography and long walks on the beach. Actually I hate beaches.

I'd argue that either i and j are declared locally so you can see their type quickly, or they're sucky variable names and should be renamed appropriately.

comment What's the idea behind defining rectangles with two points?
@Jon: But that's the point of the original question. Why have a rectangle format that allows for ambiguous definitions for left,top,right,bottom when instead you can just store those values.
