Coding Tip

If you are testing a code change, and the test takes a good half hour to run, I’ve discovered an important tip that I want to pass on to you:

It helps if you actually recompile your code.

Sigh… I’m an idiot.

    Good tip. Another good tip is “test early, test often.” I’m assuming you weren’t coding in Java since code alterations only take effect upon recompile. In other words, changing your code and running again without a new compile would run the last clean compile. Thus taking only as long as it took the previous run.

    Correct me if I’m wrong…

    No, that’s just it. It was java. I made a code change, forgot to recompile, and then was puzzled when the code did the same thing… Duh, Robert!
