Perspectives on classes

On this slide we discuss some finer details of classes. This touches on different ways to understand classes relative to concepts that you may already understand. If this is not the case, you can skip it.

  • Different perspectives on classes:

    • An abstract datatype

    • A generalization of a record (struct)

    • A definition procedure

    • A module
