I Like My camelCase
Besides its camelCase not "CamelCase"
But do you prefix it with "_" or "s" or "m" if its a private, static, or member variable ?
Thankfully Hungarian has lost its charm ... I could never figure out what to do with an _pidwulshString variable when I changed it to simply char* ...
I remember an interview with Stroustrup where he advocated under_score_case and thought camelCase was a bastard. Those with opinions .. will they never stop pontificating !'
I dont particularly like hyphen-case because I can't tell it apart from "hyphen" <minus> "case"
even if the compiler can.

There is only one way :) names should be all lower-case, with hyphen
as a separator. Camel case, or any thing else really, are awful for
I strongly agree, but of course this one is a very subjective matter. I curse Java for its propagation of the CamelCase eyesore.
