Exactly. I know it because I had a hard work with my own code which was
more than ten years old (VBA).

If we have to declare variables only at the beginning we tend to write
shorter methods which is much easier to understand. Especially if the
code is a couple of weeks/months/years old.

Since I program in Gambas my methods are smaller. Every time I see that
I had to declare many variables at the beginning I feel a kind of shame.
Because I know that the number of variables correlates with the
incomprehensibility of my own code.

Alles Gute
