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?

PHP developers have been demanding namespaces for some time. As PHP applications have grown larger and more complex, namespaces have become essential to prevent code clashes. [...] 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.
