Actually I've not seen that often. Where I've seen it frequently is in Visual Basic and Delphi/Pascal. I hated it too. But I think that the name of an identifier (noun/verb, single/plural, the meaning of the word) already gives enough context to understand what type it is. And every use of it (assigning and reading) additionally makes it clear. So _for me_ there is no need for an additional hint for the type. -- Thomas Wittek http://gedankenkonstrukt.de/ Jabber: [EMAIL PROTECTED]
