Subject RE: [VOTE] New commons proper component - collections-functors
Date Tue, 29 Nov 2005 15:09:15 GMT
+1 I support creating a functors library (but not necessarily called
collections-functors).

Rational: 
I think functors are a powerful approach to software design, under
represented (in java) and non-standardised. I would like to see functors
(sandbox) integrated and have a common interface set (and would like to help
with such an undertaking). In addition to reducing the size of collections
developers would, IMO, like to be able to use functors separately from
collections. 
Tim.
PS I'm new to this open-source community stuff so apologies for any
mistakes/inappropriate actions (such as voting on this change).
