Default Re: Problem: Functions In C

One problem programmers run into is when they work on someone else's code, or someone works on your code, or even working on your own code years after you start it, you have NO idea what approach you used. This is why we try to use as few variables as possible, and give them descriptive names. (I have no idea what idx and idx2 stand for btw) It causes less headaches further on down the line.


now that's all said I admit I am terrible about doing this when I am coding. var1 var2 var3 have become names of things in some of my stuff. And commenting on my code...don't get me started.
