Recently I have seen several blogs talking about which
fonts are best for
use in programming. Some blogs list two or three fonts, some list ten
fonts. But I knew there were more fonts than the ones I was reading about,
so I decided to look around to see how many I could find.
Here are some of the things I look for in a programming font:
I look at fonts no differently than I look at other programming tools - they are
professional investments. I discourage illegal use or copying of fonts.
If you find a font that you cannot live without, then you should buy it if
it is sold commercially. The price of fonts amounts to only pennies per hour, when
you add up all the time you will spend looking at it.
