I have been programming since like 1985 and I just realized this minute that a "corner case" is, like, where an edge case hits another edge case and gets even weirder. I've been using "edge case" and "corner case" as synonyms without ever thinking about it.


@zarfeblong me too, mind = blown

now if there's a camel in the corner..

@loke @natecull @zarfeblong an edge case is where one parameter being at an extreme tickles a bug. A corner case is an interaction of multiple parameters being at extremes.
