    Default Should I be afraid?

    I just found this:
    Code:
     
     Procedure Update
            Forward Send Update
            Forward Send Backout
     // Bunches more code 
     End_Procedure
    In the class definition for a Table Data Dictionary Class. I really don't think I want to know what went through the developers mind when they thought this was a solution to their data integrity issue... It shouldn't do anything, as forward sending from this call in the Table_DD should go to the base DD class that just has a placeholder Backup & Update procedure. But it does indicate some very very non standard thinking was going on at the time. It's a VDF16.1 app, ported from many many prior versions.
