How about boost::hash_algo?

The simplest fix would be just changing the namespace to boost::hashes. Alternatively, the library could be renamed to Cryptographic_Hash and use boost::cryptographic_hash as its namespace, though that would cut off the possibility of following Paul Bristow's suggestion. Adding just one letter at the end makes for a rather slim differentiator, but I don't think it will hurt. We already have boost::tuple and boost::tuples, right? Unless you intend to create the Boost Cryptographic Hashing Library versus one that supports a wider range of hashing algorithms, don't include "cryptographic" in the name or namespace. What about Boost Hashing Algorithms Library with namespace boost::hashing_algorithms? A handy namespace alias would be "hal" or "ha." ;) _____ Rob Stewart robert.stewart_at_[hidden] Software Engineer, Core Software using std::disclaimer; Susquehanna International Group, LLP IMPORTANT: The information contained in this email and/or its attachments is confidential.
