We continue to explore the construction of classes in Java.
b, you use
a * bor
m_namefor fields, where
m_anymore. Your classes and functions should be small enough that you don'ta need them. And you should be using an editing environment that highlights or colorizes members to make them distinct. Besides, people quickly learn to ignore the prefix (or suffix) to see the meaningful part of the name. The more we read the code, the less we see the prefixes. Eventually, prefixes become unseen clutter and a marker of older code."
