How to Shoot Yourself in the Foot in Any Programming Language

Another humorous howto’s for programmer, how to shoot yourself in the foot in any programming language.

This is my favourite:

Find a gun, it falls apart. Put it back together, it falls apart again. You try using the .GUN Framework, it falls apart. You stab yourself in the foot instead.

and this,

% ls
foot.c foot.h foot.o toe.c toe.o
% rm * .o
rm: .o: No such file or directory
% ls


even in the comments row,

You do a Google search on how to shoot yourself in the foot using VB. You find seventeen completely different ways to do so, none of which are properly structured. You paste the first example into the IDE and compile. It brushes your teeth.

🙂 🙂

And finally i decided to post my own way,


You try to shoot your left foot, you miss 2 pixels. You try to shoot your right foot, you miss 1 pixel. Finally you try to shoot your head, you miss 10 pixels. Then you realize you’re using MS IE gun.
