Suggested Triggers & Functions Naming Convention?

Hello,

i'm etablishing a naming convention for a new project under
postgresql. For tables, sequences, views, that's ok! I used good
naming conventions for this in the past and i'll keep these rules for
the new project.

but, i plan to use a lot of triggers and functions in this project,
but I'm confused! I know that triggers call already created functions.
But for tracking i must be able to associate these 2 different object
(IMO; from oracle world a trigger is a trigger, a function is a
function)

is someone have a good way to name normal functions & procedures,
triggers, trigger functions (function called by triggers)? because,
when i'll list all functions i dont want to be confused with the
complete list.

why is postgresql is not separing code from triggers and functions as
oracle do?
OR
why postgresql triggers must call functions?

IMO:
- a function is not defined to be called by a trigger (but a trigger
body can call functions)
- a function intended to be a trigger cannot be called in a select
clause (can i do it in postgres?)
thanx a lot to help me
Bruno

stupid question time again to most of you experts but this is something that continually bothers me.

Hi, Stupid question: I keep bumping into the desire to create classes and properties with the same name and the current favored naming conventions aren't automatically differentiating them...

I was just wondering what naming convention most of you use for class variables. Underscore, "m_" prefix, camel case, capitalized, etc? Has one style emerged as the most popular? Thanks for any comments. --

Is it common practise to begin the name of form classes with "frm" (e.g., frmOneForm, frmAnotherForm). Or is that generally considered an outdated convention? If not "frm" what is a common or recommended practise? Thanks.

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>".
