    Edit:
    There seems to be bug:
    Between v and a i didn't include any space in my post.
    Apparently zacs7 should have had the same problem, methinks.
    On second thought it could be a feature.

    You only THINK it means nothing.

    Class XPS Driver Golden Jet User Interface Microsoft XPS Document Converter.

    Makes sense? Okay.
    Code:
    //try
    //{
    	if (a) do { f( b); } while(1);
    	else   do { f(!b); } while(1);
    //}

    Until you can build a working general purpose reprogrammable computer out of basic components from radio shack, you are not fit to call yourself a programmer in my presence. This is cwhizard, signing off.

    XpsDriverGoldenJetUIMSXpsDocCon makes sense and isn't impossibly long (meaning, I've seen and created longer names).

    XDGJUIMXDC - the C prefix is pretty much meaningless and confused a lot of people here
    I might be wrong.

    Thank you, anon. You sure know how to recognize different types of trees from quite a long way away.

    Why not just put it in the namespace GoldenJet::UI::XPS:: DocumentConverter

    Because it's not a document converter, it's not part of the UI, and it has nothing to do with Microsoft. That's just what UIMXDC happens to stand for.

    In fact, this class only exist in order to implement one of the methods defined in the IPrintOemUIMXDC interface. Since the basic piece of software here is an XPS driver called "Golden Jet" the name goes: XPS Driver, Golden Jet, the part which implements that stupid UIMXDC thing.

    IPrintOemUIMXDC is an interface exported by a Unidrv UI plugin which provides three methods that MXDC uses to determine how to perform certain actions when converting a GDI print job to an XPS document. In this case I need to control the image compression (i.e. disable it).

    So the name didn't arise as capriciously as it might seem at first. It still sucks though.
    Code:
    //try
    //{
    	if (a) do { f( b); } while(1);
    	else   do { f(!b); } while(1);
    //}
