  • We use an IDE with code-folding. People here often comment out the top level line for a block (which automatically comments out the whole block), copy it, and make a minor change somewhere in the block (or move the block to a different library file), and then leave behind the old code in the commented out block. There are thousands of lines of commented out blocks. I wrote a crufty-comment remover in perl which removes any commented out blocks of 100 lines or more, which in some of the larger libraries saves a few hundred KB of space.
