Me neither, but as I don't have any better idea I just use regress. But we can try to come up with something better. > > > What about the functions notmuch_*_is_first?

Yes, but actually are a bit different somehow. When you advance the last iterator you can reach is a non-valid (outside the list) iterator. When you 'regress' the iterator at the end is a valid iterator, I don't see the need on get outside of the list like with advance. So, maybe because of it have sense the functions notmuch_*_is_first. Anyway I really don't mind, one or other. To change it is trivial. It's harder to find a good pair of names. -- Rub?n Poll?n | jabber:meskio at jabber.org -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=- La felicidad no es hacer lo que deseas es desear lo que haces. -------------- next part -------------- A non-text attachment was scrubbed...
