naming convetions

in my opinion the naming conventions you chose for Obj-B collide with Cocoa's conventions. Cocoa uses lowercase camel notation, so that messages (e.g. + (id)data ) and attributes start with a lowercase character. Obj-B on the other hand uses uppercase camel notation (e.g. Contains for arrays). The collision occurs as soon as I start declaring plain Cocoa messages to be used as functions or subs within my code. I can extend the functions of the built-in Obj-B array class by declaring the messages provided by NSMutabeArray. But now I have lowercase and uppercase camel notation for the same concept.

I don't know how big the overhaul would be to switch Obj-B to lowercase camel notation as well.

Kind regards

Well, I did it this way to have the possibility to see the if a function is a objb or objc function. Maybe you can convience me to change it ;-)?

What about one of your good examples, Udo? Thanks in advance.
