Why you should care
Complying with naming conventions make the source code easier to ready and so to maintain. Function names should start with an upper case and should not contain underscores OR should start with a lower case (but can contain underscores).
How we detect
CAST Highlight counts one occurrence each time a function is detected in source code as:
- not starting with an uppercase and having underscores in their names
- not starting with a lowercase and not having underscores in their names
