in reply to Favorite Descriptive Variable Name

You know, professors often (and correctly) repeat to use descriptive variable names. I've heard about a student very bored by these advices. He wrote a program where every variable had a name like this one:

int ove_si_memorizza_lo_valor_medio_de_la_lunghezza_de_le_stringhe_di_ +caratteri;


The program was quite unreadable. I don't know professor's reactions :)
see you
