You are correct, nonetheless, I wanted it as a statement
that the module is not located where normally my modules are
located :-)

I followed the names which are ususally used in this
context. I saw no reason to pick longer and less descriptive
names than the ones used in the "industry" :-)... In

"Fundamentals of Neural Networks"[1] by Laurene V. Fausett.

You can even see a book report I posted there 2 years ago.
