If you™re editing code, take a few minutes to look at the code
around you and determine its style. If they use spaces around
all their arithmetic operators, you should too. If their
comments have little boxes of hash marks around them, make your
comments have little boxes of hash marks around them too.
The point of having style guidelines is to have a common vocabulary
of coding so people can concentrate on what you™re saying rather
than on how you™re saying it. We present global style rules here so
people know the vocabulary, but local style is also important. If
code you add to a file looks drastically different from the existing
code around it, it throws readers out of their rhythm when they go to
read it. Avoid this.
