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.


I doubt that is generally true.

Especially since, presumably, you are not claiming that one should use hungarian for local variables.

How do I know what datatype it is?


Context and naming. Are you unsure about the types of the following variables?

fullName = lastName + " " + firstName;
connection.Commit();
for(int i=0; i < accounts.Count; i++)

For example, the code is a 100K line code and I cannot copy the entire project
to my disk to review that at home.


Say what?

Your "disk"? Where exactly do you work? Exactly what kind of "computer" do you have at home?

My memory stick is old and cheep when I bought it yet it holds everything I need to move entire code trees (plural at the same time.) Just one of the code trees that I commonly move around has 7,000+ files on it and probably 90% of those are source files (and I do not do GUIS, so there are no image files of any sort.)

So if you presume 5000 files with 100 lines on average then that one code tree has 500,000 lines of code. I suspect the actual count is higher.

And how exactly are you going to "work" on something at home if the piece you are working on, in some context, is not complete?

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


Because it will not provide any measurable benefit AND because as a standard it will annoy probably everyone else except you.

And morale has been proven to have an impact on productivity.
