F*cks per source package and license
« on: October 05, 2006, 09:21:31 PM »
I've seen similar counts based on language - this one graphs license type too :)

...
Here, we can see that, while the number of fucks never even gets to 1% of the results, in the highest one, PHP, 0.5% of all the packages found by Google code contain the word fuck, or any of its derivatives, such as fucker, etc. Furthermore, after PHP, which is the language with most occurences of fuck, almost doubling the other two which compete for the second place, those being C and Perl, something not unexpected. The lowest ones, which is no surprise, are C# and Python, Python probably being the cleanest programming language of the ones sorted here.
...
It can be clearly seen that LGPL makes people swear, while GPL and BSD still do, but in a reduced manner.

I'm proud to be an avid fan of the most prolific fucker.  The irony is, I don't believe I have ever used the word in my source code . . . something I'll rectify next time I'm updating a script.

There's a lot of swearing in the linux kernel source, and not very much in the NT... interesting, no?

You can't even find out how many instances of "fuck" appears in Delphi code...Google left that language out of its code search.  

I am offended! :mad:

PHP is a bastard to work with, I think, so it seems only fitting that it gets "fuck"ed the most.

Hahahahaha~!  :D

Nothing like comments in code! :D

Thank-you very much for posting that! It's probably the most abso-fucking-lutely entertaining and informative post ever on source code!  8)

(I'm not surprised that PHP wins out there.)

Cheers!

I don't know...I think of all the things you could possible code...most swearing I hear about is done when someone is coding some CSS. (right mouser?)

There was a Microsoft site where in the CSS comments someone wrote something like "Stupid workaround for IE bug." Not profanity, but certainly obscene! :D
