Thanks, I hope that pays off in the future.vevy wrote: ↑Sun Mar 22, 2020 12:46 amVery useful additions. I always used under the hood to refer to the mechanics of the program (read: the code itself; how it performs its functions), rather than non-obvious features. I am not sure if it is used differently here.
The reference to a car hood probably isn't as compelling as it once was, but the way you describe it is admittedly more common. I used to hear that all the time about open source projects. That you "wouldn't buy a car with the hood nailed shut."
