  • Anything that I overlooked?

    Yes: the point of his post. :-)

    It might have been useful if he had added a note to the effect that “this is still not very good, but it’s the first step to cleaning it up” – but a complete cleanup wasn’t what he set out to write about.

    • Well, I beg to differ. In my draft for this post I had originally written (and next dropped it as overly harsh):

      When you touch up code, any junk that you leave behind in statements that you touch, becomes your junk.
      Leaving in the statement

      printf FILE "$LOCATION{$location}\,";
      now becomes his code.
