I’m used to prefix static functions with a double underscore, even
private members of
C++ classes (or Java classes as well).
I’m dubious about the fact that using underscores as prefixes and
suffixes of functions/variables/fields
should collide in any way with the compiler. It generates random
suffixes for its internal strings,
I doubt there is a probability to be in conflict with it.
I’m not an expert, just echoing Ulrich Eckhardt’s opinion. You can
see the reason behind our view by downloading the ISO C draft,
say, version n1256 (it’s probably n1256.pdf, something like that)
and see section 7.1.3, page 178, on “Reserved identifiers”. This
section is with respect to standard libraries provided by a C
Obviously, you can ignore ISO C and things will still be just fine
if no identifiers collide now or in the future.
