Programming Style Guide for Texmate Tiger BASIC

Many programmers consider writing a good program a work of art – much like writing a good article is not only about stating facts but also about presenting them in a comprehensible way.

BASIC is supposed to be an easy language as it has only a small number of keywords and Texmate Tiger macros are relatively short so that it is pretty easy to write a working program without loosing the overview of all its functions. But what about six months later when some changes have to be made?

So here are a few suggestions how you can improve the readability of your code. Some of them are very general but a few are specific to our BASIC language.
