Easy-to-Read Scripting

Keep in mind the power that the visual layout of your code has on its clarity. Without reading a single word, you should be able to look at the indentations of the lines to see which ones are subordinate to others. Keep related code together by keeping them on consecutive lines. Separate blocks of unrelated code by putting a blank line between them. Even though the script engine will let you avoid putting multiple statements on the same line.

Use the line continuation character ( _ ) to break long lines into multiple shorter lines. The importance of a clean layout that visually suggests the logic of the code cannot be overemphasized.
