- bitPosition0b - means position, measured in bits, first bit is at position 0.
- childIndex1b - child index, first child is at index 1.
Identifier Naming Conventions
Choose identifiers for positions, lengths, and limits wisely. Here are some conventions to follow:
position/pos = A one or zero based position from the start. Java Buffer uses position in this sense (Java are always 0 based).
limit = limit position = the position one past the last valid position. Java Buffer uses limit in this sense.
offset = a relative position, commonly within a byte or word. E.g., val bitOffset0b = bitPos0b % 8.
length/len = limit - position
length limit = a length that bounds the maximum length
size = same as length.
All files should use Unix line endings (i.e. \n).
