    Question Which code is more effective?

    Which cod is more effective?

    int main()
    {
    int err = 0;
    ...
    err = Function1();
    if( err != 0 ){
    ...
    return 1;
    }
    ...
    err = Function2();
    if( err != 0 ){
    ...
    return 2;
    }
    ...
    err = Function3();
    if( err != 0 ){
    ...
    return 3;
    }
    ...
    return 0;
    }

    OR:

    int main()
    {
    int err = 0;
    ...
    err = Function1();
    if( err == 0 ){
    ...
    err = Function2();
    if( err == 0 ){
    ...
    err = Function3();
    if( err == 0 ){
    ...
    }
    }
    }
    return err;
    }

    a) this is the C# board

    b)

    >Which code is more effective?

    That depends on the situation. They both do the same, in the same amount of time. How you format it in the end is likely to be influenced by existing coding standards for your workplace or your own habits. Most effective is the version that is easier to read. But there is no perfect solution to this, as people are still arguing what is easier to read

    She was so Blonde, she spent 20 minutes looking at the orange juice can because it said "Concentrate."

    When in doubt, read the FAQ.
    Then ask a smart question.
