[erlang-questions] Erlang Style Guide

I daresay, if ROK would publish his standards, I'd probably follow them.
He's the guy who puts punctuation at the beginning of a lot of lines.  The
way it is now, I just go with what looks good (which means punctuation at
the end of the line), because I can't be bothered coming up with rules to
follow, but I'm pretty sure ROK has in his head some self-consistent system
that makes sense and makes coding easier.

 

Actually, I'd probably follow anyone's formatting rules if someone would
publish some.  Maybe I should.

 

Cheers,

 

DBM

This is an excellent guide. However, it mostly deals with language
constructs and programming habits. It would be nice to complement this with
a "writing style" guide that would discuss identation and nesting, naming
conventions etc.

 

 


Where to put punctuation, naming etc. is a matter that is discussed with
religious fervor - nobody agrees
here at all ...

What about this?

Hi all!



Is there a more-or-less universally accepted Erlang Style Guide. SImilar to,
say, PEP08 (http://www.python.org/dev/peps/pep-0008/).

If there isn't, does anyone has a style guide the use? Would you care to
share you style guides with the list?

Thank you!
