Unless you have a specific reason to use the implicit argument list, it is best to use parens in calling functions.

If this comment made no sense to you, the following summary may help.

Also functions should be given names that clearly describe what they do. Inability to find a meaningful name for a function is usually an excellent indicator that the code is not well factored. Certainly having a function whose name does not properly describe what it does is almost always a maintainance problem...
