Chapter 6, Object orientation

As mentioned several times, Pike is object oriented. This does not mean that it is identical to C++ in any way. Pike uses a less strict approach to object orientation which creates a more relaxed programming style. If you have never come in contact with object oriented programming before, be warned that the ideas expressed in Pike and in this chapter are my own and do not necessarily reflect what other people think about object oriented programming.
