Variable prefixes

V

The idea of variable prefixes
The idea of prefixes on variable is “very” old. They are used to tell the developer what kind of variable he is using. The first prefix for example is m_ and the conclusion is this variable is a member. When I learned programming we had to give the developer more information in case of a member. Like the type of it like an integer became m_i.

MsBuild and document include tags => Annoying bug

M

I was developing a large wrapper library for some classes from System.IO. I wanted to use the original documentation from mscorlib for my wrapper classes because the methods and properties only wrap the underlying components from System.IO. This is easily possible with the document include tag.
But there is a bug in the latest msbuild version which can drive you nuts if you don’t know what to look for.
