Has anybody read both of Roman Maeder's books _The Mathematica Programmer_ and _Programming in Mathematica_? I specifically mean the out of print first volume of the former. Dose _The Mathematica Programmer_ give a significantly different perspective than what is presented in _Programming in Mathematica_? It is, I believe, the best source for information about the design of his Classes` package. The only other source I am aware of is an unavailable (other than buying the hardcopy) back issue of The Mathematica Journal. And, if my understanding is correct, that is not as complete as the discussion in his book. -- The Mathematica Wiki: http://www.mathematica-users.org/ Math for Comp Sci http://www.ifi.unizh.ch/math/bmwcs/master.html Math for the WWW: http://www.w3.org/Math/
