Renaming to rename tasks
This is a particular discussion thread among many which consider Rosetta Code.


Perhaps rename tasks that use -ing verbs ("Boxing the compass" => "Box the compass")Property "Summary" (as page type) with input value "Perhaps rename tasks that use -ing verbs ("Boxing the compass" => "Box the compass")" contains invalid characters or is incomplete and therefore can cause unexpected results during a query or annotation process.


I propose to rename several tasks that use -ing verbs (present participles).

These new names would remove inconsistencies (as in Call a function versus Calling an object method) and follow similar changes (Reversing a string => Reverse a string, Sorting Using a Custom Comparator => Sort using a custom comparator). My list omits some tasks where the -ing words are more like nouns (Huffman coding) or adjectives (Playing cards). I will start later when I have time to use the "move" tab. --Kernigh 22:53, 18 August 2011 (UTC)


Is there a way to keep the Speech engine from "Using a speech engine ..." at the front of the title, as it is more important. --Paddy3118 06:05, 19 August 2011 (UTC)

I feel similarly about URL encoding and URL decoding. CRGreathouse 21:23, 21 August 2011 (UTC)
