[REBOL] Re: Style R flavour checker ;-)

From: brett:codeconscious at: 9-Jan-2002 22:34

Hi Carl,
> Vote?
Sorry but I don't think a vote will be helpful. My position is in basic agreement with Allen. I'll add that I haven't seen an overwhelmingly better style than the standard yet. So I don't think there is any point making changes that will result in inevitable confusion. I also believe that people who may have just joined the list will already be experiencing some difficulty with recent posts that use a different style. The value of coding style (as laid out by the vendor) in the Powerbuilder world is so strongly recognised that you don't pass a job interview unless you know it. I think RT will, and needs to, lead the way and I'm quite confident that if a much better style is developed it will be adopted. But it would have to be brilliant. :) I think there could also be some effort put towards ways of dressing up the existing standard style (via for example spacing/comments) that will make it more visually pleasant. Brett.
