  The Series

 Part I


Who is this written for?

This series is for those who have decided the quirks of C++ classes are more trouble than they are worth. I intend to provide alternatives to certain features of classes that can be emulated using more traditional techniques. This article is not meant to be argumental, so I will not go into the 'why' of avoiding classes, rather I will assume you've read one of the many papers out there pointing out its many flaws and you've decided you would like to use them as little as possible. The format of this series will likely resemble that of this article; first bringing up a feature of classes that we can emulate, then going into the implementation, followed by any limitations of the approach.
