In my life as C++ coder, two really nasty "rules" were enforced:

  1. "We can not use the STL, because VC++ 4.1 does not support it (and we can't switch to VC++ 6.0 at this time)."
  2. "Do not use QuickSort, because it can be O(n^2) in bad cases; use this implementation of the HeapSort algorithm I (name of project leader deleted) wrote as a student."
