I think this is one of those "living documents" - every time I see it there's a few new things added....

Re: How To Write Unmaintainable Code

yes!

One Missing File
: Make sure that one or more critical files is missing. This is best done with includes of includes. For example, in your main module, you have

      #include <stdcode.h>

Stdcode.h is available. But in stdcode.h, there's a reference to

      #include "a:\refcode.h"

and refcode.h is no where to be found.
