I agree with Ovid's premise. Though it is not always true. Sometimes the writer's energy for naming just failed or the naming was just boggled somehow. Additionally Ovid's premise is just not true, if I have well designed code and randomly change the identifiers I would have obfuscated, well-designed code. I agree because The physical medium in which we construct programs is so facile that it behooves us to construct programs whose models reconstruct in our and other minds easily.

Your point is also sublime. Thanks.

All of this side steps the issue of domain knowledge. What is an EXPENSE_LIMIT? Is this terminology which is standard to accounting, to accounting programs, an unknown or forgotten computer science snippet or a construct named idiocyncraticly to this program/system? <p> This is also an issue to consider in the pursuit of clarity.

Update: Struck out text, respelled computor.

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>

to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
