Naming Conventions for Ptools Projects

This page documents the naming conventions established by and for Ptools projects. As individual working groups expand on these conventions, they are asked to send additions to the contact listed at the bottom.

Names associated with standard APIs

Each Ptools project should establish a "project prefix" that will be used to distinguish user-referenced names from other system or user-defined names. Typically, such a prefix will be 2-4 characters in length (e.g., "LCB," "PTR," or "DAQV").
