Frustrations

Sometimes frustrations can lead to good things. In my case my frustration has finally pulled me over the line to start blogging. I just spent half a day on a bug, so ridiculous, that I don't ever want to forget it again...

Since I'm still busy fixing bug n° 2, I will post the details in the next post

From a programmer's viewpoint I have never seen such an unfriendly beast as ACAD.
You never get a reasonable error message. At best you get e.g. eInvalidEntity at worst the system freezes.
Debugging does not always help, quite often you have to guess what went wrong.
Each time I have a working version I copy it over to a new project, so if an error occurs which I cannot find, I try the previous versions to find the last working one. Normally this leads to the point where the error was introduced.
Quite frustrating and time consuming, yes. What would people say if Windows were of the same quality as ACAD, documentation is also a shame.

Hi Mark,
This is absolutely so. I (we) work in a similar way. I think the best way to handle this efficiently is a small framework doing it for you. That way you have the correct code, needed to do something right at hand...
