I agree with Ovid
's premise. Though it is not always true.
Sometimes the writer's energy for naming just failed or the
naming was just boggled somehow. Additionally Ovid
premise is just not true, if I have well designed code
and randomly change the identifiers I would have obfuscated,
well-designed code. I agree because The physical medium in
which we construct programs is so facile that it behooves us
to construct programs whose models reconstruct in our and other minds easily.
Your point is also sublime. Thanks.
All of this side steps the issue of domain knowledge.
an EXPENSE_LIMIT? Is this terminology
which is standard to accounting, to accounting programs, an
unknown or forgotten
computer science snippet or
a construct named idiocyncraticly to this program/system?
This is also an issue to consider in the pursuit of clarity.
