I found this generally interesting article on the art of commenting in programs that I want to share with the members here, as well as with my own team at work:


Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one should be silent.

A lot of people, especially those new to programming hate the idea of commenting. These guidelines are pretty standard in programming. I myself, never commented before my first year of programming in College and never found a need to.

But soon, you find that the larger your program is, the more effective and time efficient commenting can be. My suggestion to all programmers is, use commenting wisely. Too much is distracting the attention away from your code and can confuse others who read it, too little can leave others hopeless in understanding your code.

Good article, one everyone should follow
