    I am a reverse engineer, assembly programmer and C programmer. Things like COM, STL, GTK, OLE, interfaces, templates, classes, subclasses, iterators, methods, overloading are not what I deal with. I deal with FLOATs, DOUBLEs, DWORDs, WORDs and BYTEs. That's all I have and those are the most important things for me.

    If you want people that are not familiar with your language to be able to understand your names, then that's probably not a good idea. For your personal programming, who cares?

    The .NET Framework is HUGE, I think their naming convention is actually pretty easy to get especially if you are trying to figure something out and guess the first word and you somehow pop up with the right function. Or not, but it is pretty easy that you don't have to remember, but know a general direction.

    Well, sometimes I don't want casual snoopers to easily iunderstadn the code...
    Until you can build a working general purpose reprogrammable computer out of basic components from radio shack, you are not fit to call yourself a programmer in my presence. This is cwhizard, signing off.
