Re: Readability suggestions


"Daryl Reece" <reece_d%a1.clust.CLUST.umc at engult.lxe.com>
In [mg2977] Readability suggestions
asks  "Does anyone have suggestion for making MMA notebooks
readable to non MMA literate people."

Daryl,
Two of the things that I try to bear in mind, even for MMA literate  
people, are

1. Be succinct.
2. It is not necessary for the reader to see every bit of code:if  
it is not necessary then hide it in a closed group or a closed cell  
or put it in an appendix or package -- it's there if the reader  
wants to see it.
