Code Style

Variable Naming

Not all current code follows the conventions below but these will be followed for future developments.

  • lowerCamelCase General variables
  • UpperCamelCase Functions
  • Maximize the use of semantic and descriptive variables names (e.g. faceIndices not fcInd or fi). Avoid abbreviations except in cases of industry wide usage. In some cases non-descriptive and short variable names are exceptable for instance vertices (points), faces, edges, colors and logic arrays may be denoted V, F, E, C, L. Furthermore, if a mathematrical symbol or letter is commonly used for some entity it may be acceptable to use short names e.g. coordinates may be referred to as X, Y and Z and image coordinates of indices may be referred to as I, J and K. In some cases the use of capital or non-capital letters refers to tensors/matrices/arrays/sets and scalars/components/subsets respectively, e.g. a multitude of scalars c may be contained within an array or matrix C, or a cell array D may contain individual entries referred to as d.

Testing

For the moment the DEMO_ and HELP_ files may serves as a test suite.
