Next: Built-In Functions Up: Naming Conventions Previous: Structured Types



(1) We follow computer science history for naming conventions as close as possible. This is already basically true for the language.

(2) We always use lower case letters. Thus, error is error and RETURN is return. Both of these functions act as commands in Darwin enough so to warrant them being classified under this rubric and not the section of built-in function.
