As I've got very limited time at the moment, but intend to keep up the momentum with DTL now it's rolling, I wanted to canvas opinion on what you would all like to see for DTL 0.2, which I hope to release sometime next week. The options are:

- More comprehensive examples using current containers
- Documentation of the current containers (via Doxygen)
- D-ising the syntax (i.e. collect_with => collectWith. etc.) of the current containers
- A first attempt at "The Spirit of DTL" document, so everyone can grok my vision (or carp on about it.<g>)
- Set template being implemented
- Parameterised interfaces (currently looks like I've a linker bug, but Walter says he'll lend a hand, so it's doable)
- Propagating composable transformations to all current containers

- or any other things I've not thought of.

Remembering I'm a little tight right now, please put them in prioritised order if you make multiple requests/suggestions.

Cheers

Matthew

Always good to have but I think most are intelligent enough to realize how to use collections.

Couldn't we, um, do that for you? If people bitch about something, they should at least try to do something about it, you know, by themselves. How hard can it be...

I grok that.

My two cents or two US Dollars (you know inflation)

For myself, implementation of Set is a higher priority than the other things you list.

"The Spirit of DTL" might be a good start.  It would probably make constructive criticism that much more constructive :)

Set template, and please change collect to transform, because in my English
dictionarry it says for collect: "bring a number of things together" and
what collect
really is doing is transforming!
"The Spirit of DTL" would be nice too.

I agree.  At first glance, I thought it meant what Python calls a filter. (what DTL calls select(), I think: Iterate over only those elements which satisfy some condition)

I think 'transform' or 'apply' would probably make more sense.

+1 vote for transform (but I already said that before :)

Done!

I should be uploading DTL 0.2 in the next couple of days.

Not (yet) done. ;)

We're kind of overloaded on the amount of glarking involved  :-) http://dictionary.reference.com/search?q=glark
