Application Security Testing: An Integral Part of DevOps

Namespace aliases

Choosing a short name for a namespace can eventually lead to a name clash. On the other hand, very long namespaces are not easy to use. For that purpose, namespace aliases can be used:
//file decl.h
namespace Excel_Software_Company { 
class Date {/*..*/};
class Time {/*..*/};
//...other declarations 

//file calendar.cpp
#include "decl.h"
void main()
namespace ESC = Excel_Software_Company; //ESC is an alias for Excel_Software_Company
ESC::Date date;
ESC::Time time;
//...rest of the program
