More words on software design

(If I am becoming boring, skip this post)

The awkward moment in software development happens mostly when you find out that some large part of your fancy project has been written by someone else in a better, shinier and more standardized fashion. This happened to me yesterday as I discovered that there already is a better API for generic functions than the one I have written. Oh yes, and it is called std::tr1::function (or boost::function for the poor fellas who still cannot use the goodness of Technical Report One). The good news is that I was doing it mostly right from the beginning, so the migration will not be painful. The bad news is that I still will have to migrate and document the code even more than previously, but since it is not a very large part of my project, it is completely okay.
