Think the community is too large for having consensus,
At the moment I still use Hungarian for exactly three reasons, judiciously avoiding it for everything else: To be consistent with an existing code base when doing maintenance. For controls, eg. "txtFirstName". We often need to distinguish between (say) "firstName" the value and "firstName" the control. Hungarian provides a convenient way to do this. Of course, I could type "firstNameTextBox", but "txtFirstName" is just as easy to understand and is less characters. Moreover, using Hungarian means that controls of the same type are easy to find, and are often grouped by name in the IDE. When two variables hold the same value but differ by type. For example, "strValue" for the value actually typed by the user and "intValue" for the same value once it has been parsed as in integer.I certainly wouldn't want to set up my ideas as best practice, but I follow these rules because experience tells me that it occasional use of Hungarian benefits code maintainability but costs little. That said, I constantly review my own practice, so may well do something different as my ideas develop.Update:I've just read an insightful article by Eric Lippert, explaining how Hungarian can help make wrong code look wrong. Well worth reading.
What is it with the coding nazis in here?
If you tell me that there is a consensus among the Moderators in favour of leaving this Thread here I will, of course, accept that.However it has not seemed to me that there has been a collective discussion among the Moderators about the appropriateness of anything in this Introductory Tutorials section, or whether the section should exist at all....R
I looked at the other thread, and found this.What does "Arduino size_t" mean?
