Variable Namingby rir (Vicar)

a temporary variable is fine if it can be related to the application in some
way, ... One way to tell is if you can give it a truly meaningful name. If you can't,
see if you can eliminate it.
From early on I have been a believer in good names. The above as inspired me to
raise the level of quality I try to achieve in naming. A good name should
clarify obscure/advanced/complex/efficient 1 code by expressing what the variable
It is going to be tough to break the habit of using result for return values.
