During yesterday’s developer meeting, the usage of CamelCase in Octave functions was briefly discussed.
There were no strong feelings about it. But it general it would be nice if underscores could be used in place of CamelCase where possible. Exceptions are made for compatibility with Matlab functions.
This is mainly for consistency in the naming scheme of Octave’s functions.
Since Matlab seems to prefer CamelCase over underscores in functions, using underscores in Octave specific functions might also help to avoid possible name clashes in the future.

JupyterNotebook to Octave that extensively uses CamelCase. Would it be possible to convert that class and its function to Octave’s preferred naming convention? Or are there good reasons for using CamelCase for that part of the code?
