ENG101 Programming Style Reference: Version 1.0 Programming Style Guide for C++ This programming style guide is a set of mandatory requirements for C++ code layout. These stylistic “laws” are not made for arbitrary reasons. Experience teaches that conforming to this style, more or less standard through the industry with few exceptions, makes code easy to maintain and allows it to be read less painfully by others. This style guide is mandatory for ENG101, and can only be relaxed under specific instructions from GSI’s and Prof’s. In summary, the style guide is summarizes as: Indent 3 spaces relative to the preceding for every new nesting level. Curly brackets must always align vertically. Example, int main(void) { int i = 0, k = 1; if (i < k) { int temp = i; i = k; k = temp; if (0 == k) { i = i*i; k = -i; } } return 0; } Variable and function names are in lowercase, terse but descriptive, enough information conveyed within the programming context, with capital letters to start new words internal to the identifier. Example, numStuds = 211; degToRad = 180/PI; Don’t overdo it! Bad example,

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
