Coding style

Post by mikazo » Mon Dec 16, 2013 1:45 pm

Hi Andy,

Is there a particular coding style and/or standard to which we should adhere when writing code, or is it acceptable to stick with the style that we're used to? (Everyone is different! :))

Ha, well, I hate to admit that I'm really nitpicky about it, even though obviously everyone has their own style, and right now you'll probably find a mixture in the existing code (I used to use emacs, then switched to gedit).

Normally I think that etiquette dictates that whoever creates a source file gets to choose the style, and when someone else comes along they should emulate that style.

It's not too important, really. :mrgreen:
