I found myself using rebuild a lot recently.  I especially like how it 
generates all the .obj files in a single directory, rather than all over 
the place - it makes cleanup a bit easier.

So the hyphenated-namespace.obj technique: does this have a name?

The reason why I ask is I'm bound to reference this in my project 
documentation at some point, and I'd like to have something convenient 
to call it.

I find myself wanting to call it "Gregorian Notation", but perhaps 
there's something better (or more punny) waiting in the wings?

Shouldn't that be "Gregorian-Notation"? :P As a side note, I think that would be an excellent name. That way, we know who to blame for it. :) -- Daniel P.S.

I suppose. But then you don't see people calling it pcszHungarianNotation, now do you? ;) The hyphen stays, that's great.

 P.S.  I think Gregorian-Notation is brilliant; it's one of the reasons
 why I'm trying to transition from bud to rebuild.

When I saw rebuild do this, it was a head-slapper, that's for sure.

The original name used in #d and so forth when the feature was added is "fully-qualified object files," or sometimes "FQN object files." That q is where the q in the -oq command-line option to Rebuild comes from. -- Kirk McDonald http://kirkmcdonald.blogspot.com Pyd: Connecting D and Python http://pyd.dsource.org

As Kirk mentioned, I just call it "fully-qualified object file naming." That being said, I'm a narcissist, so I certainly wouldn't argue "Gregorian Notation". I'm sure everyone in the Gregor D Community using the Gregorian Shared Software System enjoys the Gregorian Naming of the Gregorian Object Files. - Gregor "the Gregorian Hatter" Richards

All your base are belong to Gregor. We are Gregor, resistance is futile. Use Gregorian-brand sanitary wipes today! I'm sorry, I can't come to work, it's a Gregorian holiday. :P What you really need now is your own calendar. How about the...
