in reply to Favorite Descriptive Variable Name

toto of course!

I actually started using toto, tata... way before I read the jargon file, so I can testify it's the natural sequence for French speaking coders. I even had a friend who would do strings new_expensive_french_software | grep toto and never failed to find results.

See the Jargon File for a complete list of descriptive variable names.

    I second mirod on this one! Though, some $scalar, @array or %hash might be quite fun when you have to review your code after a week or two.

      Of course, if you want to really mess with people, you could use $hash, @scalar, and %array... :)
