2. If you temporarily remove code that is not currently required (but may be needed in the future) should you leave it commented out (so it is still visible) in the source tree, or just delete it completely (as it will be stored in the revision history)? Why? 3. Is the removal of legacy (unused) features always the right thing to do? Is there any inherent risk in removing sections of code? How can you determine the right time to remove unused features? 4. What percentage of your current project’s codebase do you think is unnecessary?

Each line of code costs a little. The more code you write, the higher the cost. The longer a line of code lives, the higher its cost. Clearly, unnecessary code needs to meet a timely demise before it bankrupts us. • More code means there is more to read and more to understand—it makes our programs harder to comprehend. Unnecessary code can mask the purpose of a function, or hide small but important differences in otherwise similar code. • The more code there is, the more work is required to make modifications—the program is harder to modify.

KEY ➤ It is safe to remove code that you might need in the future. You can always get it back from version control. There is a counter argument to that simple (and true) view, though: how will a new recruit know that the removed code is available in version control if they don’t know 1.
