Hello Steven, I also tried in vain to find some info how Classes.m work. I also gave up trying to understand the complicated code. Further, I did not like much the feature that you have to define each method inside the class definition. Therfore I was looking for an other implementation of OOP. I found: http://library.wolfram.co.jp/infocenter/Conferences/5773/ from: Orestis Vantzos This implementation seems to me much more usefull and it is much simplier. The only small draw back is that you have to extract the code from a presentation. Daniel Steven T.
