Subject [jira] Commented: (SANDBOX-232) IsElementOf predicate behaves in opposition to semantic implication
Date Fri, 11 Apr 2008 14:36:04 GMT


Matt Benson commented on SANDBOX-232:

Hmm... perhaps this is a "six of one, half-dozen of the other" situation.

Time for a new programming language that mimics human language by having different syntax
for different "parts of speech".  Oooh...

Anyway, I'm prepared to let this one go, but frighteningly I'm intrigued by the idea I've
expressed above...

Going, going...

> It is my opinion that semantically, "IsElementOf(foo, bar)" translates into English as
"bar is an element of foo"; however this BinaryPredicate is actually coded such that the translation
is "foo is an element of bar".  This comes down to an opinion question, so I'd like for interested
parties to weigh in on this one before I make the requested change.
