PostSubject: Scripting style   December 31st 2011, 8:40 am

This thread was made to give you a basic scripting style to make your scripts more readable and look nicer, of course you can bend some twicks and add some twicks, but that's upon you. Notice that some could eventualy be added. A scripting style is a very good way of making scripting more fun and making your scripts look better and more readable.

  • Tab scopes. (I'll explain what a scope is under the 'rules')

  • Make readable maths by pressing space before and after the operator: 9*5+8=53 ---> 9 * 5 + 8 = 53. It doesn't only count for maths, but for all the operators: x=1 ---> x = 1 and if x==1 then ---> if x == 1 then

  • Press space once after a comma: for x = 1,2,0.1 do ---> for x = 1, 2, 0.1 do (notice how I used the 'readable maths' rule at x = 1, because '=' is a operator)

  • Define all your variables with 'local' unless you don't need a local variable. Also define all your variables you could define before the big work.

Congratulations, you've learned the basics for writing readable scripts.

Now I want to explain what a scope is to you, but I'm a bit lazy o_o, so it'll be better to read this:

If you got any questions, post them bellow.

good, but uuuh, you got one thing wrong. local variables, as a matter of fact, are faster to access than global variables. so its actually better to sacrifice readability for speed
