mindless: Do you have a good name for a class that...?

P: n/a
Do you have a good name for a class that is both routes and transforms
a message?

Somehow transouter or routformer doesnt jive, and a most things that
route,send, direct don't also transform, and things that convert or
change don't also route?

Any ideas? Trying to avoid two words as well. Should have taken more
English classes along with Comp Sci :-)

How about "Dispatcher"? IMO implies dispatch to either/or/and a
'transformation' or 'target' procedure.

Yes, non-cohesive ;-). But this is OT for comp.lang.c anyway...

Perhaps the fact that you can't think of a good name indicates that you
are trying to put too much functionality in one class. What about
separating the functionality into two classes, one for routing and one
for transforming?

Yeah, that's the ticket. Too darn bad those guys that came up with that
new-fangled vacuum tube didn't realize that; intead they came up with a
doofus name for their gadget. .

C doesn't have classes. Kindly don't post questions about them to
comp.lang.c.

C doesn't have classes. But that doesn't preclude OO programming in c.

While you can do OO in C through some rather clever constructs (hell, I've
got some packages to prove it), most people talking about classes for C-
like languages are usually talking about C++ or Objective-C.

Or they're talking about Java, in which case their definition of C-like
needs to be tweaked a bit. ;)

Considering the cross-post list, I'd say it's unlikely that the OP
intended to be topical in c.l.c.
