I have more questions along the same lines as my first one....

1. Which is better etiquette or easier for mIRC to parse?
a. var %var blah

b. var %var = blah

2. I know this next one is retarded but oh well, it came up when I was coding a few minutes ago and I figured I'd throw it in here. Which is better?
a. var %whatever $iif($condition,1,0)

b. if ($condition) var %whatever 1
elseif (!$condition) var %whatever 0
