You almost make it sound as if coding style were merely a matter of fashion and not a matter of correctness. Consider the difference between a C-style for loop and iteration.I'd say the difference is a matter of *style*. Which way you write your loop has fuck-all to do with correctness, but the C-style loop will likely get you scolded on this website.
