Any CLASSLIB users?

Post by RichardRussell »

I'm hoping to add classlib to the set of libraries supplied with BBC BASIC for SDL 2.0, with the intention of it being fully compatible with the equivalent BB4W library (although adapting it for 64-bit operation has proved 'interesting'!).

It would be nice to accompany it with an example program illustrating its use, but it's notoriously difficult to make a case for Object Oriented Programming (OOP) to people who aren't already familiar with it, and doubly so to write a program that can illustrate such an abstract concept. Are there any regular CLASSLIB users here, and if so have you any ideas for an example program?
