Could someone guide as to what the convention is when we see a
wordpress function which starts with one of these





and very rarely some core functions start with _.

as to the template tags, the convention is easy to understand, the_X
outputs the X inline, whereas get_the_X returns the value.

But for all the rest, not too sure.
