Talk:Local Declaration Guidelines

Revision as of 12:47, 9 January 2009 by Paulb (Talk | contribs)

What about putting the character at the end of variable name instead of the beginning? Prepending seems similar to prefixing features with the class name which we don't do, or the C way of prepending things with _variable.

I don't know, maybe it's just a preference but I don't like l_ at the beginning of all local variables I use.


There is a lot of Eiffel Software code using this convention already, hence the page for contributors. These are guidelines for contributing to the Eiffel Software code repository and not rules for Eiffel itself, saying that consistency all around would be better :)

p.s. Don't forget to include a signature so the discussion is split correctly.
