in thread what's a proper way to code method synonyms

Erm... Won't that make for an absolute maintenance nightmare when someone has to go in and clean up code that someone else wrote using every possible variant of every possible method? Such a person might well hunt you down for this... (only half kidding)

HTH,

    Actually .. This is kind of easy with vim.. at least a lot easier. Yes now that I think of it- if I had to use notepad to edit one of these modules with multiple synonyms.. I would quit my job.

    I'm a fan of unix one liners that spinal tap multiple files. And of cvs.. so... can't mess up.

    I was under the illusion that having synonyms makes it easier to use.. if not maintain.. Anyhow. After reading this thread I am turned off from the idea. And I am not going to use any synonims in modules again. Unless it's for... as merlyn said, legacy.
