Chapter 7. Classes and Object-Oriented Programming

CLASSES ARE THE PRIMARY MECHANISM USED to create data structures and new kinds of objects. This chapter covers the details of classes, but is not intended to be an introduction to object-oriented programming and design. It’s assumed that the reader has prior experience with data structures and object-oriented programming in other languages such as C or Java. (Chapter 3, “Types and Objects,” contains additional information about the terminology and internal implementation of objects.)
