foobar

For software engineers or to be exact, code developers, it is kind of necessary to learn new programming techniques all the time. Sometimes, it is also necessary to learn a new programming langauge as well. For those who look at sample code on the internet, be it from the open source community, discussion forum, or Microsoft MSDN Library, you might come across the word "foo" and "bar". For example,

int main()
{
foo = bar();
return 0;
}

A games developer cum programming guru told me that "foobar" was originated from the word FUBAR used in the military. FUBAR stands for Fucked Up Beyond Any Recognition. Hahaha...
