Further examples of great coding...(not)

In class CL_SCV_LITE_UI_SERVICES, method SHOW_POPUP, we have:

text = 'This functionality is not supported in SCOV Lite mode'(002).

Then look at text element text-002.

This function is only supported in SCOV Lite mode

Oops! (It's the text element that is wrong).

      I didn't even know there was such a goldmine on sapfans o_O

      Funny thing is, when looking at in parallel which dates around 10 years "later" you can even see that some of these source code comments were not removed in later versions but partially purged of profanity only, i.e. the comments themselves and their funny context remains/remained. :>

    I've seen something similar with a new note. Its manual correction instructions in English looked weird, so I switched to German which was the original language. There was one step which was the opposite in the translated version. It was corrected quickly by SAP.

    Make a jump on ABAP Tag, and you see things like this

    Oh wait! You are the poor silent hero moderating it!

    Hmm, time for the "Things that SAP could easily fix, Part 2"? Opened by Jelena II. The stars seem to be aligning. :)
