If there’s one thing that makes me think I’ve somehow slipped into the Bizarro universe, it’s the phrase “Control Flow”.
For the majority of the 30+ years I’ve studied and practiced programming, conditional operations, loops, and even the dreaded GOTO were referred to as “flow control”.
But in the last five years or so, it seems everytime I turn around, somebody’s using that aneurysm inducing inversion.
Yes, yes, I know that semantically both terms are valid descriptors.
Semantically, it would be valid to call a trip around the plates in baseball a “run home”, but you’d start to wonder about yourself if everyone suddenly started calling them that.
Also—holy shit, 30+ years?
