joe code
Jump to user comments
/joh' kohd"/ 1. Code that is overly tense and
unmaintainable. "Perl may be a handy program, but if you
look at the source, it's complete joe code."
2. Badly written, possibly buggy code.
Correspondents wishing to remain anonymous have fingered a
particular Joe at the Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory and
observed that usage has drifted slightly; the original
sobriquet "Joe code" was intended in sense 1.
