Interfaces in computer programming[edit]

The section ==Interfaces in computer programming== deseres to be a separate article. How shoudl we call it? Jorge Stolfi 21:40, 6 Apr 2004 (UTC)

The only problem with interface is no one really cares enough about it to really matter.

Interfaces in general[edit]

I think there needs to be a more general article on interfaces. It doesn't just refer to software programming or electrical connectors, it is used a lot more widely in IT / electronics, so it's hard to disambiguate links to this page.

I can't see any article here about hardware interfaces (in general). Moreover, the article about computer science abstraction isn't wide enough. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 83.239.180.230 (talk) 16:10, 4 February 2008 (UTC)

Clean-up[edit]

This was tagged in July 2009 because content of the page needs cleaning up. It also has incoming links. Lots of changes have been mafe - what else do people think needs to be done? Boleyn2 (talk) 08:29, 7 August 2009 (UTC)

I'm not sure it's a good idea to list all those examples of interfaces under the "Interface (computer science)" part. The "first-level" ones like User interface and Application programming interface, yes, but I find that the rest should rather be in categories than on this page. Puceron (talk) 07:19, 11 August 2009 (UTC)
I recently added those entries and I agree that the lists should be drastically pruned. Perhaps list only 3--4 important examples of each class, then say "and many more"?
In any case, some of the lists (such as the electrical interfaces) seem useful and should be preserved somewhere, perhaps as a "see also" list in some parent article, or as a "List of" article. All the best, --Jorge Stolfi (talk) 19:02, 11 August 2009 (UTC)

Why the redirect from "Interface (disambiguation)"?[edit]

The page is clearly a disambiguation page. For consistency with other disambiguation pages, why don't we move this content to the "Interface (disambiguation)" page and redirect this page to there? As a user when I see a disambiguation page I expect to see the "(disambiguation)" following the article name. I think it helps the non-editorial user community. § Music Sorter § (talk) 18:41, 25 July 2010 (UTC)

It's fine as it is. We only need to have the disambiguation page at Interface (disambiguation) if there was a prime use of 'Interface' which would justify an article. See here. Bridgeplayer (talk) 22:36, 26 July 2010 (UTC)
