What is the rationale behind naming enumeration cases in upper camel case?
*Follow case conventions:* names of types, protocols and enum cases are
> UpperCamelCase. Everything else is lowerCamelCase.
let a = NSComparisonResult.OrderedSame // refers to a value, but is
let b = NSDate.distantFuture // refers to a property/value, but
- everything related to types (type names, protocol names, generic type
parameter names) should be upper camel case
- everything else (function names, property names, variable names, etc.)
should be lower camel case
This is already the current and the proposed recommendation with
enumeration cases being the only exception.
Enumeration cases are not types.
