newb question about Variable Naming Conventions

Recommended Posts

This is surely a very newb question but......

I've noticed in UDF's, etc. -- that the variable names are usually prefixed with a letter or two and "_" --- I am assuming this is done to help avoid problems with same named variables.

What I am wondering though -- is if there is an rhyme or reason to it -- kinda like a "best practices" sort of thing

Like do individual people just pick random (meaning whatever they feel like) letters, or is there any kind of scheme to it?

If you make an UDF for example sound you can name it whatever you feel like but if a particular function of your sound udf plays a sound it would be only logical to call it _SoundPlay would it not?
