  • I don't like calling things ugly, but double underscores are ugly. IMO they're subject to the whims of fonts/editors, so it's hard to tell if there's a single or double underscore.

    My initial reaction was the same as Jason's -- why do you need the quotes at all?

    • If two underscores are considred ugly, is there any reason you can't just type:
      SELECT id,
             first_name,
             last_name,
             other_table_id,
             other_table_name
      FROM   some_view
      It's probably pretty obvious that the prefix actually is a table name prefix. At least that's my experience when naming constraints in our databases. They follow that naming convention.

      Ovid, if you can post it, what would real life examples look like?
