Naming conventions for Icon objects
Here are some naming conventions I use for Icon objects:
- Class names are capitalized (example: Tree). The class
names are used only in comments.
- The constructor for class ``Foo'' is generally called
``Foo_New'' but this is not a hard rule. Sometimes the
constructor gets its information by parsing, in which case it
might be called ``Foo_Parse''.
- In most cases the state for an object is a record. For an object
of class ``Foo,'' the type of the record would be
- Method names use underbars between the words, e.g.,
``Foo_New'' is the usual constructor name for class Foo.
- Ordinary variables and field names use the Pascal internal
capitalization convention, e.g., ``fooCount''.
- Defined constants use the typical C convention of all caps:
