Hello again,

The conventions I came up with is what I got out of this book

Code Complete, Second Edition (Steve McConnell)

See for more information.

I tried to compress the huge amount of information to a digestible size, 
with rules that are easy to understand and fast to learn.

As I said before, it is a first draft, so if anybody has more sources, 
please add reviews to the wiki page and share your opinion on this list.

But I think, that a short description of a function (needless to say, that not every set and get function has to be commented), perhaps with some special problems or conditions and some special vars, would increase the productivity and double developing and uncontrolled function-groth in every module.
