[opensource-dev] Kudos to the Viewer team(s) past

I just wanted to say something.
I used to do C++ code reviews for HP. That is, an HP customer would pay HP
big bucks to send in someone to review a new C++ app they were about to roll
out (too late, right 8-). So I would go to the customer site and spend a
week talking to developers and looking at code. Then I would write a
report. Nothing very high tech, but CIOs seemed to like it.
The good news is that the SL Viewer code is the best C++ code I have ever
seen in a large application. (Scary?) Good work. Kudos to the ancestors.
What I mean by "best" is that it looks like the C++ you find in the best
advance examples, rather than like FORTRAN converted to C++. You'd be
really amazed at what huge kludges some of the really big, important C++
applications look like at America's largest corporations. For example, a
million lines that compiles into one big .o file. Sweet.
