If I have a meaningful variable in languages like Python it is very convenient to use _ as a word separator. E.g.
this_is_an_sql_that_causes_an_error="SELECT * FROM TABLE"
in IRIS there are no special symbols allowed as separators. So the variable looks as:
thisisansqlthatcausesanerror="SELECT * FROM TABLE"
Of course we can use Camel:
thisIsAnSQLThatCausesAnError="SELECT * FROM TABLE" - it increases readability, but not very much. And it is easier to mis the case and variables are case sensitive in IRIS.
Let's introduce "-" as legitimate symbol for vars names? So this will be:
this-is-an-sql-variable-that-causes-an-error="SELECT * FROM TABLE"
Thank you for submitting the idea. Based on information from our experts the status of your idea was changed to "Will not implement". Please look for details in the comments on the idea. Good luck!
definitely not "-" it is a minus sign you can't use it as a part of a variable
and underscore unfortunately already taken as a concatenation symbol
So, looks like there are no symbols left
