buried treasure
Jump to user comments
A surprising piece of code found in some program. While
usually not wrong, it tends to vary from crufty to
bletcherous, and has lain undiscovered only because it was
functionally correct, however horrible it is. Used
sarcastically, because what is found is anything *but*
treasure. Buried treasure almost always needs to be dug up
and removed. "I just found that the scheduler sorts its queue
using bubble sort! Buried treasure!"
