It does to a certain extent. If you're writing code that you're expecting others to see and use, you should try to be consistent and follow convention. If you write up a large project in C++ and suddenly start naming header files with a ".doc" extension, somebody's going to get confused.
Of course, if nobody's using your code but yourself, then whatever. But for the purposes of consistency, portability and common sense, following a common coding standard is a good thing. J Philip J.
