Programs which fail and then return status code 0 are SUPER COOL GUYS


@sir I once wrote a script which returns 0 on failure. A while later, I wrote a second script which ran the first script, and re-ran it if it failed. Ended up bricking a microcontroller because the first script failed without being retried.

Friends don't let friends return improper status codes.
