As the subject tells you, I have pushed the initial support of class
namespaces in the master.
This is done through a new syntax of the EXPORT keyword:
EXPORT AS <NameSpace>:<Name>
And allowing to have a colon inside a class name.
This syntax exports a class by using "<NameSpace>:<Name>" as its public
name, instead of the name of the class in the project.
Outside of the project, you will have to use "NameSpace:Name" to use the
Inside the project, you should be able to use "NameSpace:Name" or the
internal name of the class indifferently.
Note that now a class can now be exported with a different name.
Namespaces do not really exist inside the interpreter or the compiler.
It's just the part of the class name before the colon.
In the future, I will add the ability to choose a default namespace in
the project properties, so that the "EXPORT" keyword alone directly
exports the class to that namespace.
Or a syntax EXPORT TO NameSpace as syntactic sugar for EXPORT AS
NameSpace:<ProjectClassName>, where <ProjectClassName> is the name of
the class in the project.
Tell me what you think, and more important if you find problems with
that new feature.
