    I hadn't previously been aware that vroom had an underscore-centric worldview - and particularly not a multi-underscore-centric worldview. This probably comes from a background of excessive C coding, as opposed to the funkyCaps-centric worldview that others enjoy.

    I'm still disappointed he didn't go to Linux World Expo in drag.

      They are called camelCaps (because of the hump in the middle, not because of any relation to Perl), though this may just be local usage (and if so it deserves to catch on).

              - tye (but my friends call me "Tye")
        camelCaps are also known as Hungarian Notation among VB developers in particular...comes from combining a 3-letter abbreviation in front of a variable or function name that denotes what the object is, and then camelCapping(?) the words together so:
        strSomeExampleString = "An example string."
        The term Hungarian comes from Microsoft programmer Charles Simonyi, who used it at Microsoft, and encouraged it's use in VB, and happens to be Hungarian. Plus, he would joke that it kind of looks like Hungarian...

    But then "Other" would always win. Some restrictions need apply. When the question is silly however, there's usually a single correct answer which seems to fit just right. ~W

    I don't see any optimistic option in this pool. So, this pool doesn't have the option I desire :)

    The only thing you regret in life, is the risk you don't take.
