Hi all,

I have record with two parameters like

-record(user, {name, password}).

I am using above record for a user table.

I need to create another table country_code with country and code.

Is it all correct to re-use above record for country_code as well or else do
I have to create another record like

-record(country_code, {country, code}).

Or else, should I create a common record with two parmeters like

-record(two_params, {first, second}).

Which one is good practice?
