GeneralWhy the world hates Hungarian notation? Pin

I'm about to write the coding standards doc for a team. I've been using Hungarian notation ever since I stated coding.

The blogs that I read online rant against use of Hu system on OO languages, but I have few questions:

Though it's C++ or C#, we do have primitive data types everywhere. In fact, for smaller projects, primitive data types would account for 90% of the variables.

Now I'm dealing with a lot of nummbers , flags & so on.

How do I know what datatype it is?

For example, the code is a 100K line code and I cannot copy the entire project to my disk to review that at home. I choose to copy a 300 lines code block with multiple functions to review it at home.

I just open it in notepad and try to figure out what datatypes all these variables are. No where I can figure out this.

Then why the heck everybody rants against this convention?

I'm going ahead insisting on sticking with the Hu notion.

If anybody has a valid reason against it, I'm all ears to it.

(if you dont like Hu notation, please dont express it with the 1 vote here Sigh | :sigh: )

Starting to think people post kid pics in their profiles because that was the last time they were cute - Jeremy.

On which operating systems are you writing code?
Let's see if things have changed since we last ran this. "writing code" meaning editing, building, and running the code on that OS.
