  • I've kind of fallen into an odd trap. I comment the hell out of the space *just before* something, and then I put little comments in when I figure it's not clear what's where and where's what.

    That is, I explain what's supposed to be going on (mainly to myself so I'll remember later) and then, if the code is particularly long or arduous or uses lots of functions I don't understand, I comment specific lines. I try to avoid that, though.

    Of course, this is code for *me*, at this point. When I get it cleaned up, I'll likely rip most of the comments out, leave the little pointers, and give an overview at the beginning. (Hell, I may get ambitious and put POD in there, too. You never know.)
