Few days ago I stopped on some PHP's developers quide (for contributors to particular project) and it stated, that
elseif must be strictly used instead of
else if -- without giving any reason, why?
Can someone clarify this? I don't see neither much difference nor any argument supporting this.
Info: I believe, there are more languages, than just PHP, that this problem strikes, that's why I asked here, not on Stack Overflow. Feel free to migrate, if necessary.
