Example text

If possible, source text should use self-explanatory names for objects and program units, and it should use simple, understandable program structures so that little additional commentary is needed. The extra effort in selecting (and entering) appropriate names and the extra thought needed to design clean and understandable program structures are fully justified. Use comments to state the intent of the code. Comments that provide an overview of the code help the maintenance programmer see the forest for the trees.

6 Constants and Named Numbers guideline • • • • • • • • • • Use symbolic values instead of literals, wherever possible. e for the mathematical constants and e. Use constants instead of variables for constant values. Use a constant when the value is specific to a type or when the value must be static. Use named numbers instead of constants, whenever possible. Use named numbers to replace numeric literals whose type or context is truly universal. Use constants for objects whose values cannot change after elaboration (United Technologies 1987).

4 for additional guidelines on choosing a parameterless function versus a constant. notes There are some gray areas where the literal is actually more self-documenting than a name. 7 Exceptions guideline • Use a name that indicates the kind of problem the exception represents. example Invalid_Name: exception; Stack_Overflow: exception; rationale Naming exceptions according to the kind of problem they are detecting enhances the readability of the code.
