Hidden Features Series
« on: July 22, 2009, 07:42:11 PM »
A series of threads has been started on StackOverflow that I think every coding nerd/geek at heart would greatly enjoy reading. They're basically just a list of all the unusual and underused features of various languages for people to preuse. They exist for the following languages currently:

A few of my favorites:
C++c++.jpgHidden Features Seriesc++2.jpgHidden Features Series
Cc.jpgHidden Features Seriesc2.jpgHidden Features Series
HTMLhtml.jpgHidden Features Serieshtml2.jpgHidden Features Series
JavaScriptjs.jpgHidden Features Seriesjs2.jpgHidden Features Series
Perlperl.jpgHidden Features Seriesperl2.jpgHidden Features Series
PHPphp.jpgHidden Features Seriesphp2.jpgHidden Features Series
Warning: As someone who is familiar with almost all of these languages, I will warn you: you can spend a lot of time reading these. Also, keep in mind you have a daily vote limit of 30 :-[

Ehtyar,

I was going to send you $3 of Donation Credits for finding this.

But then I realized you weren't kidding about the time it can suck you into spending there.

So I decided you owe me $3 of Donation Credits for stealing my time.

 :P

Great find.
