Subject Re: Why do class names start with lower lowercase?
Date Tue, 18 Sep 2007 02:08:29 GMT
Hi Sha Jiang,

These are utility programs for which the natural name is lower case.  
For each class, there is a corresponding command, and rather than try  
to map dblook to a class DBLook or Dblook, the natural thing is to  
simply have the class name the same as the command name.
