Fol­low­ing on from the last post, we will look at the Declared Intentions style today.

 

Style 23 – Declared Intentions

Constraints

  • Existence of a run-time typechecker.
  • Procedures and functions declare what types of arguments they expect.
  • If callers send arguments of types that aren’t expected, the procedures/functions are not executed.

 

The problem of type checking is a solved problem in statically typed languages, so by programming in F# there’s almost nothing we need to really do for this style.

Using the same solution from the Pipeline (aka functional) style, I have added a few explicit type declarations to better comply with the constraints.
