6.4  Use vertical alignment

Vertical alignment is a kind of chunking of similar or related items which are on separate lines. The lines need not even be next to one another as a vertical visual link can be made across a number of lines (see 2.6).

Code indentation is a normal use of vertical alignment. Data declarations commonly use the same rule (see 6.15.3). It can also be used to align equals signs where there are several assignments together:

 

BoxHeight   = CalcBoxHeight( Box );
BoxWidth    = CalcBoxWidth( Box );
BoxLength   = CalcBoxLength( Box );
