The implementer of this library has an affinity to typing large amounts of text, and generally dislikes abbreviations. As a result, the function and variable names occurring in the BIC Volume IO Library may be quite verbose, almost to the point of being complete grammatically correct sentences. In general, one will never see functions with names such as rem_garb(). Instead, functions are more likely to have names such as remove_garbage(), and, in many cases, even take_garbage_to_curb(). As a result, the user of the BIC Volume IO Library will have to type longer-than-usual function and variable names, but hopefully will have a clearer insight into the associated functionality.
