Hungarian Variable Naming Convention

This is a bit out of scope of this discussion, but it bears mentioning nonetheless. The concept of variable data type will be discussed later. The Hungarian naming convention involves giving variable names a prefix that indicates what the scope and data type of the variable are intended to be. So as not to confuse matters, I have not been using the Hungarian convention in my posts, but you will find that most programmers prefer this convention. Properly used, it makes your programs more clear and easier to read and write.
