Names and Namespaces

  • Ray Lischner


Nearly every name in the standard library begins with std::, and only names in the standard library are permitted to start with std::. For your own names, you can define other prefixes, which is a good idea and an excellent way to avoid name collisions. Libraries and large programs in particular benefit from proper partitioning and naming. However, templates and names have some complications, and this Exploration helps clarify the issues.
