Thank you, definition 6 is what clinched it for me too. Of course, like you said she can use what she likes (but it's nice to know as objective an answer as possible for curiosities sake if nothing else).

comment Maiden name vs birth name
Mmm, it's really becoming a question of whether or not birth name and maiden name are synonymous.

@JohnY I struggle to believe you can work as a programmer and not know what a type modifer is. my.safaribooksonline.com/book/programming/c/9788131729342/…

@JohnY It's at the very early stages, but I do see the point. At the moment, I've done something similar to what you mentioned in the end; I have a Number type that has a Whole type modifier instead of Integer and some representation of a float separately.

@Oldcat then why are you complaining about me using the most commonly understood floating point representation?

@Oldcat this is still at design time and subject to extensive changes, but from speaking to my target market/group (since this isn't and never will be a commercial venture) decimal has been the most effective for floating point numbers, and myDecimal as Octal and so on for when another representation was needed.

@Oldcat True, but if your new programmer sees decimal they'll know what it does. What's more, it could be cast to other formatting conventions upon request.

By this are you referring to having Integer implicitly cast to a Boolean like C and C++ do? If so...interesting; I could eliminate the type altogether.

@Gus thank you, not sure what you mean by the true when waving thing though?
