East const Central

Welcome to East const Central

This page is for understanding and following the latest thinking on East const, sometimes called Consistent const.

Briefly, the rule for const is: const applies to what is on its left, unless there is nothing on its left, then it applies to what is on its right.

The rule for East const is: Always put const on the right of what it modifies. This makes the const rule very simple: const applies to what is on its left.

There are several arguments for why this is a superior approach. If you’d like to add your’s or a link to a related topic, please contact me at “eastconst” at this domain.
