SitePoint PHP Blog:
Are PHP Namespaces Really So Bad?
August 13, 2009 @ 09:29:14

In this new post to the SitePoint PHP blog, Craig Buckler asks a question about one of the newest features of PHP, namespaces - are they really so bad?

[...] Unlike C# and Java, PHP has to retain compatibility with non-namespaced code. That has been achieved and you can choose whether to use namespaces or not.

He includes an example of the method that was previously considered (the double-colon) and the final spec using the slashes.
