Taligent environment programming conventions

No application seems finished before it has to ship: there are always changes you'd like to make or features you'd like to add. Rather than delay delivery, you make those changes in updates or revisions. To ensure a high degree of certainty that your code will continue to work as your program changes and interacts with other programs, you must establish guidelines to follow as you write code. The conventions and guidelines in this chapter are the construction rules Taligent follows to ensure that code written today will be robust, portable, and extensible in the coming years.
