Alright, I will change that. > * Again, bike shedding, but I like the name ArrayIterator - it > defines exactly what the class is while Array doesn't convey very > well by itself.

That's what "use" is for. You would do "use Spl::Iterator::Array as ArrayIterator" and than "new Array" becomes "new ArrayIterator" which is pretty clear. Of course, we should add that to the docs if we go that way. > You end up with more verbose names by going to a PEAR1 style of > naming convention because you have to use the entire name with the > namespace in order to convey what the code is supposed to be doing. > I would stick with names more closely related to the original names > and add "spl::" (see next comment for lowerspace) to signify that > they're part of SPL.

"Spl" is a package consisting of several subpackages like "Iterator", "Lists", etc. pp. > * I would change everything except the final class name in the full > name to be lowercase.

I don't really have an argument against that, except that I honestly don't like it, sorry :). I'm not sure how I could assume that "Spl::List" can be instantiated, as I miss the hint that it exists. If Spl::List is a problem, everybody out there must have a hard time trying to figure out that there is no StringIterator because ArrayIterator exists? cu, Lars
