- Why Don't Software Programmers like Comments?
Cristian Amitroaie, CEO of Amiq, talks with John Blyler about Specador, a automated HTML documentation tool for chip design and verification engineers. This tool generates meaningful documentation even from poorly documented source code, as it actually compiles the code and can generate cross-link class inheritance trees, design hierarchies, and diagrams. The need for this functionality lead to an interesting discussion about the software programming process and why programmers rarely document their own work.
