So the idea that variable names should be meaningful has not penetrated to your bit of the forest?

That's interesting.

But p,q,r are the x,y,z coefficients of the first equation. Then pp,qq,rr are the x,y,z coefficients of the second equation. And ppp,qqq,rrr are the x,y,z coefficients of the third equation.

I don't why I didn't use x,y,z.

The program did begin as a curve fit program.

But I don't like variable names that can confuse with the programming language syntax. I don't like variable names that can confuse with function names, with subroutine names, or with object names.
