|0005294||[tweak] Any||minor||always||10-26-06 00:20||10-27-06 00:59|
|Summary||0005294: Method #any is unintuitive and collides with common usage.|
Recently I had the pleasure of porting a large pile of VW code to Croquet and found #any to be a problem. In most code I have seen, and in an informal poll I conducted at OOPSLA, most people expected #any to return an arbitrary element of a collection.
I would suggest that #any be renamed to somrthing like #anyIn or #anyMatchingIn. These have the advantage of being more descriptive and syntactically they indicate that something should follow them, such as the #match: method.
#all probably should be modified in a similar manner.
Looking in the Tweak code in Croquet, it looks like there aren't many places that #all and #any are called in currently.

|Agreed. It's on my own list of things to get rid of.|

In base Squeak, there is the method Collection>>anyOne that returns 1 arbitrary element of the collection. That would probably be a good choice for the name.
For #all, maybe #allOfThem ? Random suggestion, there.
