String smashing is a technique for solving complex structurals problem in computer science with excessive use of string concatenation. Typically results in extremely high cyclomatic complexity, unmaintanable code, and developer insanity.
Building an in application "search engine" for a relational database by having thousands of lines of PHP code that builds a massive string containing an sql query.

A simple example of string smashing would be the following line of pseudo code.

"select" + COLUMNS + "from" + TABLE_NAME + "where" + GET_CONSTRAINTS()
