//used in the creation of some kind report

//do somethig else
Comment: a great example of coding for obfuscation, which states: "never ever will you clearly express your intention through code".
Why creating a new cell and destroying it the line after? And why that subtle test, which checks for srcCol, but creates a new cell at destCol? The artist leaves us slightly dazed and confused, while thinking of his wisdom.
