    that depends on what you mean by dll hell. The fact that you don't like them?

    >>> DLL hell

    It is the term in common use by the industry. Why would any teacher worthy of the title insist on calling it something different.

    DLL Linkage Descrepencies

    In industry, call it anything you like but don't use words like bug, fault, error, failure, problem and hell.

    !

    Why do you use the word "bug" to denote a programming error?

    Because if I use the term 'programming error', then it's my fault the program doesn't work. But if I say it's bug, then I can explain that it must have just crawled in over night and has nothing to do with me.

    More sersiously, software customers often raise 'wish lists' of new features as bugs. I.e. "RID51-02 : the software does not have button to formulate a theory of gravity." I wouldn't want these classed as programming errors.

    Where ever I've worked, the company normally has it's own term for bug/error. Stuff like:

    Review Item Descrepency (RIDs)
    A non-comformity
    Item of non-compliance

    etc. etc.
