(I apologize if this question is asked elsewhere -- I just had a lot of trouble searching for it, since its not about words :P)
Anyway, I have noticed that, in the tidyverse, people seem to prefer "_" rather than "." to separate words that need to be joined together (e.g.
read.csv), in contrast to old-R formats. Is there anywhere that describes why the tidyverse prefers it this way?
Additionally/relatedly, does this preference extend to anything that might have the choice (e.g. is it the same whether it is a function, object name, column in a nibble, etc...)?
