Sequences and Sprites
Sprites must be able to perform two major functions:
Cycle through a sequence of images
Move about on a double buffered container
As previously mentioned, the rate at which each of these functions occurs can be set. A Sprite is responsible for moving itself about and timing its movement; however, it delegates the responsibility for cycling through a sequence of images to another object: a Sequence.
Figure 25-1 shows the Sequence class diagram.

As you can see, a Sequence maintains a vector of images that it cycles through. It also uses a stopwatch to control the rate at which it cycles ...
