Coding Guidelines
Document Conventions

<< ^^ >>

The style guides are described through a series of tables. The left entry is color coded to reflect whether the item is a standard, a strong suggestion, a simple suggestion or just a good idea.

Standard

Entries that are identified with red color background, and bold and slightly larger text are regarded as a coding standard.

Any and all code must follow this standard.

Strong Suggestion Entries that are identified with yellow color background and bold and italic text are regarded as a strong suggestion. When ever possible you should follow this suggestion.
Suggestion Entries that are identified with blue color background and italic text are suggested for good maintainable code. These entries very often make the code more readable as well as more portable.
Good Idea Entries without a color are still good ideas/suggestions but are not as strongly emphasized.
