    Question How much performance do long loop names take?

    This is something I have been wondering about while doing my new project. I have quite a lot of loops (mainly for each loops) and I wonder if anyone know how much performance loss there is in having long descriptive loop names vs short ones? Say for example you have a loop that always run that you name "choose_target" vs just naming that loop "ct". Would the performance be much greater in the latter less descriptive one or are the difference so small that it is not really noticable?

    It is very nice to have long descriptive names so it is easier to read the code. But I don't want it to be a reason to worse performance in the game.

    I guess since 2.5 the length of loop name does not influence the performance anymore
