    • Another thing I find odd is the judging of yesterdays code by todays "best practice" standards. From what I see on the internet we are talking about cars produced in 2000. The first version of the MISRA standards came out in 1998. Assuming that all the code was not developed from scratch, it's very likely that there was a lot of "pre-MISRA" code integrated into the project. How can you expect this code to have "0 deviations" as Koopman claims is standard practice. I've worked in automotive companies before and while the latest code follows the latest standards and does indeed document any deviations from MISRA. I'm pretty sure the code written in 1980 does not, and uses global variables liberally. Soon we will see "experts" detecting "code smell" by finding singleton objects in C++ code.
