Programming With Style
The Principles of Code Construction
We will begin by exposing some of the misconceptions that programmers commonly have regarding coding standardization. For example, the distinction between standards and guidelines, as well as between programming standards and coding standards, will be explained in detail. Following this, Chapter 2 will propose guidelines for the production of programs which are not only user-friendly, but modularized. It will also offer advice for the effective design, testing, debugging, and optimization of source code. Finally, Part 1 will end with a look at programming tools helpful to the construction of readable and maintainable code. The principles of code construction presented here focus on maximizing long-term code maintainability.
