You ask Jerry!

You find Jerry to be a prepubescant looking kid who’s dad lets him homeschools while writing code for in app purchases on his freemium games. You tell him your issue. “Oh wow, I’m sorry to hear you’re working on that code base, that thing just doesn’t seem to die. I’m sorry but I don’t use that part of the code because it just never seemed to work. That one function ReIterateThroughDataBaseGreaterThanZero(X,YIn,Params) just always broke on me. Other than that one function, the code was more or less stable so I was able to do what I needed to without it. I meant to fix it, but never got around do doing that. I don’t know what to tell ya man.”

What do you do?

  1. Go back and look for yourself
  2. Investigate ReIterateThroughDataBaseGreaterThanZero(X,YIn,Params)
  3. Try and run the code without ReIterateThroughDataBaseGreaterThanZero(X,YIn,Params)
