- iterindexed(collection) --> accepted
Except I want to think more about the name.
Okay, here's what we have so far:
iterindexed()-- five syllables is a mouthfull index() -- nice verb but could be confused the .index() method indexed() -- widely liked however adjectives should be avoided count() -- direct and explicit but often used in other contexts itercount() -- direct, explicit and hated by more than one person enumerate() -- a contender but doesn't mention iteration or indices iteritems() -- already used by dictionaries for key:value pairs
My current fave is 'indexer'. Something which creates an index.
I like it! Raymond, what do you think?
