Coding standards in C++
While looking for some stuff in some older discussions, I ran across this thread. The discussion revolves around a number of standard coding suggestions that get thrown about for C++ code (such as naming conventions for classes, variables, types, inline functions, etc...). The general consensus was that most of these standards - like Hungarian notation - detract from OOP more than they add.

The only coding standards that I've seen that seem to be workable in a long term project revolve around enforcing library usage - rather than naming conventions. More along the lines of preventing duplication and violating the DRY principle rather than worrying about line by line standards.
