std vector

2005-03-28 20:32:12.72016+00 by Dan Lyke 3 comments

Do other C++ programmers find themselves as weirded out by the idea that we're sprinking our code with std::vectors as I do? Unfortunately, in my twisted mind "STD" doesn't bind to "standard name space" and "vector" is a path of travel, not a collection.

Sigh. It's weird being me.

using namespace std; cures all ills...

But seriously, is it the nomenclature that freaks you out or the "heavy weightness" of vector?

Just nomenclature, and on that count I'm not sure that reducing it a chronic condition via using namespace std; helps any [grin].

(Not to mention some of the bizarreness that MSVC does with namespaces and using clauses makes explicit specification work better.)

I think I met an std::vector in a bar the other night...
