Avoid encodings: Hungarian Notation
Revision as of 12:11, 27 January 2020 by Admin
Examples of Hungarian Notation:
- lAccountNum : variable is a long integer ("l");
- arru8NumberList : variable is an array of unsigned 8-bit integers ("arru8");
- bReadLine(bPort,&arru8NumberList) : function with a byte-value return code.
- strName : Variable represents a string ("str") containing the name, but does not specify how that string is implemented.
- rwPosition : variable represents a row ("rw");
- usName : variable represents an unsafe string ("us"), which needs to be "sanitized" before it is used (e.g. see code injection and cross-site scripting for examples of attacks that can be caused by using raw user input)
- szName : variable is a zero-terminated string ("sz"); this was one of Simonyi's original suggested prefixes.
