Subject [Silence on the list?] Coding Style Questions
Date Wed, 17 Sep 1997 15:34:10 GMT
[Wow! Not a single message today? What's going on? Hyperreal down? Or my
company?]

As the code is revamped and unified, I'd like to know which style is
preferred for "new style" code. Is there a consensus, or a paper about it,
or do developers do it either way?

Which alternative is the preferred style, in your opinion?

      Either:                                Or:
      =======                               =====

  port = 80;                        port = DEFAULT_PORT;

  return DOCUMENT_FOLLOWS;          return HTTP_OK;
  return REDIRECT;                  return HTTP_MOVED_TEMPORARILY;
      etc.                              etc.

				    #define HTTP_PROTO(major,minor) (1000*(major)+(minor))
  if (r->proto_num >= 1001) ...     if (r->proto_num >= HTTP_PROTO(1,1)) ...

With the exception of the last example, it appears to me that newer code
prefers the second column, but I might be mistaken.

Anyone?
