    ptrs to function names

    "How would you choose names for pointer to function types defined using typedef"?

    This is one of the questions in The C++ Programming Language book by Bjarne.

    So what do you think are appropriate names for ptrs to functions?

    Should they be capitalized? Should they have a long name?

    Example:

    Code:
    typedef void (*PF)(double);

    Think of general naming guidelines, e.g., this one by Stroustrup. The same apply here. As for naming style conventions: be consistent.

"Finding the smallest program that demonstrates the error" is a powerful debugging tool.
