comment Is there a single word that means expressing insincere kindness in order to draw attention to oneself?
I can't think of a word for it offhand, but it sounds like a close cousin of humblebrag.

@Farside The link in the answer defines dead code as "code that is unreachable or that does not affect the program" and thus can be eliminated by the compiler. If it's not there, it cannot be executed. Most modern IDEs allow you to exclude one or more files from a build, which also results in the code not being executed. (I've been a SW engineer for over 20 years, BTW.)

@stannius The OP was looking for a somewhat standard term to apply to code that wasn't going to be run, or even necessarily compiled. Dead code seemed to fit the bill.
