Appendix A. Gwydion Project Coding Style Guide

Table of Contents
Recommended
Mandated

Note: This appendix lists the Dylan language coding style guidelines formerly used by the Gwydion Project.

This file lists two broad categories of style issues for Dylan. One category, called "Recommended", contains style points to which Gwydion programmers should adhere, as opposed to "must adhere". If someone sometimes, or even always, breaks a recommended style point, then others must to be tolerant of that deviation. You must not modify the original author's code purely to satisfy an urge to convert the original author's style to your own. The second category, called "Mandated", contains style points to which Gwydion programmers must adhere. If you find someone has deviated from a mandated style point, then you may convert the code to be the mandated style.
