Software Design/Apparency of semantics

From Wikiversity
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Apparency of semantics is a code quality characterizing how easy or hard it is to perceive the semantics (i. e. meaning, and/or inner workings) of code elements: expressions, statements, and functions.

Unlike apparency of purpose which is about how easy or hard it is to understand the "why" of the code, apparency of semantics is about the "what" of the code.
