I have no idea if it takes lees time to process it or not, but to my ageing eyes, GetAreaSize() is easier to read and understand than get_area_size(). Unless I'm fooling myself of course, but I find it seems quicker to read the first example than the second.

Maybe it's because the first example reads as a single word, albeit one which is three combined words, while the latter looks almost like three words, but I prefer my words to have spaces between them? I don't know. Maybe a brain scan would help?

The one coding "standard" that always blew me away was Windows 3.1 and Hungarian Notation! But let's not go there!
