Really long identifier names in Juce


#1

Just touching on something brought up in another post:

Before I started using Juce, I used short identifier names. I’m a fast typer (blazing fast) but I never thought to use really long names for identifiers. When I first looked into Juce, it bothered me that the member names and class names were so long winded (i.e. Rectangle instead of Rect).

However, I’ve seen the light…now I like long descriptive names. Thanks Juce!

and with good suggestion/auto-completion from a modern editor, it’s so much easier to work with long identifier names… in my case, it’s Visual Studio + Visual Assist…

Visual assist is the kind of tool that makes you wonder how you could code before you had it.


#4

Yeah, and what makes coding in Xcode such a pain in the *** . I really hope that the C++ completion stuff will work in Xcode 4, because in Xcode 3.2.2 the damned editor cannot even find method/variable names in a cpp file adjacent to its header (!!!), and that really pisses me off…


#5

Yep, that’s pretty much the same with vanilla visual C++
