Are there any conventions concerning the naming of "dummy" commands that are used in a restricted scope for specific purposes?
For example, I am checking if slashes (
/) are contained inside a string parameter passed on from a user input file. My first instinct was to assign a new command
\slash with the result but it is obviously already defined.
I could go with the usual
baz, etc. but, again,
\bar already exists.
What are the bests practices for doing so and avoid overriding existing commands?
