In the C++ community it is considered an extremely bad practice to type:
using namespace something;
in the scope of the file for any reason, even if the project size is only a few hundred lines at most.
However, other languages offer analogous constructs. We can, for example, do this in Python:
from some.thing import *
And this in Java:
Yet I don't hear THAT MUCH frowning at these analogous constructs in other languages like in C++.
Is doing this in other languages just as ill-advised as in C++ and if not, then why?
