Despite the above, the quality of the code is generally excellent. Modules are small, and procedures generally fit on a single screen. The commenting is very detailed about intentions, but doesn't fall into
"add one to i"redundancy.
There is some variety in the commenting style. Sometimes blocks use
aat every line, sometimes
the. In some modules functions have a history, some do not. Some functions describe their variables in a comment block, some don't. Microsoft appears not to have fallen into the trap of enforcing
over-rigidstandards or universal use of over-complicatedautomatic tools. They seem to trust their developers to comment well, and they do.
