Survey Results

Braces around single line commands. Needed or not?

Survey period: 12 Feb 2018 to 19 Feb 2018

It's just about the braces. Not about whether the leading brace should or should not be on the same line as the conditional. One war at a time.

Note the explanation under the heading: "It's just about the braces. Not about whether the leading brace should or should not be on the same line as the conditional. One war at a time."

I chose "It depends" instead of having 15 other options purely to focus the debate on the important question and not let it get dragged off into the weeds.
