What is Well-Commented Code?

Interesting discussion at Slashdot Developers.

I must say that I am commenting a lot less these days. Using modern IDEs like Eclipse or Boa, long names are not a problem., so I'd rather give a function a self explanitory name, and not bother commenting it at all.

Back on the iSeries, 90% of my work is on existing RPGIV code. With a six character limit on field and subroutine names, well, loads of comments are needed..

One of the comments on the /. discussion agrees with this. And has a link to a Radio 4 live feed! Cool!
