OK, that's what I was asking about.
I just wanted to learn how to interpret these names.

I don't comment them if I like or not as this belongs to coding
style which is a subjective matter :-)
However, I'd be careful with underscore prefix, in general, regarding to
C++/ I noticed that inclusion guards in IO 2use reserved
names startign with underscore followed by uppercase.
