I have come to the same conclusion - working on a 6-7 stack large
project and command and function names like
libKMR_returnFieldTitlesARRAYFromDatabase pTargetDB, pTableName
although verbose, really work for me... I just cut and paste the long
names..and prefix most names with the stack name.
I have to stop and force myself to think more about and describe what
this damn thing does and where else can I use it - and I package (and
re-use) a larger quantity of smaller subroutines as a result.
