Re: Using \[Breve] as a substitute for underscore

Hi,

the other people use capital letters in variable names
because MassOfEarth is the usual Mathematica style and
\[Breve] can mixed up with Pattern[] and that make the
code nearly unreadable. You have to look very hard
to see that A\[Breve]Integer is not A_Integer
