Pyrite code is what occurs when a finished program is subjected to constant tinkering and updates, resulting in frequent glitches and bugs. The term stems from gold code, which is what programmers call a finished program, minus any patches or fully-formed updates; the code is golden. Pyrite is also known as fool's code.
