Source Code - Quality

Quality

The way a program is written can have important consequences for its maintainers. Coding conventions, which stress readability and some language-specific conventions, are aimed at the maintenance of the software source code, which involves debugging and updating. Other priorities, such as the speed of the program's execution, or the ability to compile the program for multiple architectures, often make code readability a less important consideration, since code quality depends entirely on its purpose.

Famous quotes containing the word quality:

    So much has already been said about Shakespeare that there doesn’t seem to be anything more to say; yet it is the quality of the spirit that it forever stimulates the spirit.
    Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe (1749–1832)

    As the quality of water changes with the nature of the soil;
    So will a man’s reason vary with the quality of his friends.
    Tiruvalluvar (c. 5th century A.D.)

    Anybody who knows the difference between the kind of conversation you have walking in the woods and the kind of conversation you have between the segments of a show on Nickelodeon can tell you that quality time exists. Quality time is when you and your child are together and keenly aware of each other. You are enjoying the same thing at the same time, even if it is just being in a room or going for a drive in the car. You are somehow in tune, even while daring to be silent together.
    Louise Lague (20th century)
