Here’s a list of somewhat unique/funny variable names I’ve either created or worked with in the past year or so that have made me either stop and chuckle, or shake my fists in doom.
A toggle switch to determine if a cleanup script I wrote should report but not perform the action. I quickly prototyped the argument by typing: die(ZOMBIE);
Stands for ‘string Hit’ – a variable used for displaying a hit for a web-based game I worked on long ago
Not my own; it’s on the list because it truly is the longest real variable I’ve encountered in the wild. On the bright side, no explanation needed :) – the best part is it’s an array – so eventually there would have been usage similar to: $aCredentialsRequiringArticulationAgreements[$nIndex] – adding to it’s loveliness.
Not my own; merely a non-descriptive name for an index number.
Not a variable, but a network name – symbolic for a googol: http://www.pcmech.com/article/the-mysterious-1e100-net/
Gosh I thought I had more off the top of my head – guess I’ll just keep adding to this post as time goes by.
