Re: [Sc-devel] server naming conventions cleanup?

Sounds right, in principle someone could write a SynthDef style class in Java or python or something....

Hi Ron, peoples

The real problem is that the design document (Server-Architecture)
does not use the term Graph or GraphDef for the
server side constructs.

The easiest thing to do would be to add some comments clarifying the
between a unit generator and a UGen, a GraphDef and a SynthDef and a
Synth and a Graph.

I think I'm going to give up on the renaming patch.

For now in the book chapter I have written:
The Graph type implements the SuperCollider concept of a Synth.
The GraphDef type implements the SuperCollider concept of a SynthDef.

(Graph and GraphDef in code font, Synth and SynthDef in italics)

This is more general than saying GraphDef relates to the sclang SynthDef
class... do people feel this is accurate?
