Microsoft i love you forever, for PascalCase. RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • The day when i quit programming - its when Microsoft will make camelCase in C# as standard for public methods/vars, instead of PascalCase.

    And BTW: CamelCasing comes primarily from C++ STD library style, the native old language inherited from C. So Java inherited from C++. But C# - is entirely new language - clean and beauty, with new rules. Oldfags must programm on Java or C++, new generation people must programm on C# - and they should never interact.

    Consider this examples:

    1) PascalCase: list.Capacity.ToString();

    2) camelCase: list.capacity.toString();

    In (1) we have CAMEL CASE in long TERM!!! means listCapacityToString. (much more readable for me)

    In (2) we have bullshit: listcapacitytoString. (unreadable for me and also unlogical)

    Or consider this:

    3) itemsCount = items.Count;

    4) itemsCount = items.count;

    All my senses prefer (3) option instead of (4).

    (this examples is only beginning)

    Thats how i read. And why camelCase for public methods/vars is illogical for itselt, especially with combination of local (or even private) camelCase variables.

    For me Microsoft - forever or until they use PascalCase. THANK YOU VERY MUCH THIS MEANS A LOT FOR ME. Please don't change your direction only because of majority of kids, who used to code Java, JavaScript or other old trash languages like PHP.

    To get the better answer, it should be a better question.

  • Hi NewbTom,

    I would like to say that perfection does not comes at once. Initially we do errors and learn from them. C# came much later than C, C++ or Java. So, obviously developers of C# language were well known of the drawbacks of all those pervious language and what they lack.

    It does not mean that C# all at a sudden came from heaven with all power and features that are not available in any other languages. According to me, C# came after learning from C, C++ and Java with feedback from developer community all over the world.

    One good question is equivalent to ten best answers.
