Description Kimmo Kinnunen 2021-12-14 06:16:14 PST
Clarify Objective-C++ style rules about pointer about reference token placement

Pointers and References
Pointer types in non-C++ code
Pointer types should be written with a space between the type and the * (so the * is adjacent to the following identifier if any).

See discussion:

Currently the style seems to say:
- All pointers and references are written with space between type and */&.

Currently the Objective-C++ .h file parts that define Objective-C interfaces, classes and protocols seem to sometimes follow this, sometimes not.
Currently the Objective-C++ .mm files do not seem to follow this much at all.
