Writing an application in a high-level language like Xojo, if done properly, is self-documenting. Variables and functions should be given descriptive names so the reader, or even the author, can follow it without much difficulty like this example code:

if theName = PrimaryName then

SendFormLetter(letterTemplate(1))

elseif theCompany = PrimaryCompany then

// Do nothing
