  • Frankly, I don't give a bugger what you call $_[0], so long as you're consistent and the name you choose tells me what it's for. Personally, I choose self, for fuzzy reasons that I really must get round to articulating (so I know what they are...), but I'm not dogmatic enough about it to say anyone else should do different.
    • Because surprises aren't amusing when you're maintaining other people's code. Following conventions helps avoid stupid mistakes. For a while, I switched to using '$this'. Bad, bad jjohn. The switch served no purpose.

      Normally, I'm pretty laid back about style, but this bugs me.
