Structures and Curly Braces

Please observe these conventions:

  • Tabs are preferred over spaces, tab-width is four characters
  • Always use curly braces for conditional statements *unless* they are on the same line and are very short
  • Always space after if
  • Nested else
  • Function definitions with newline


Please use comments appropriate to the language you are using.


Use /* and */ when adding comments in C programs. Please don't use // for comments in C programs.


Use the // style for C++ programs


Lua has two styles of comments:

  • Single Lines
  • Multiple Lines
  • No labels
