Summary

Summary

Provides a concrete demonstration of how metaclasses can be used to increase productivity and reusability in object-oriented programming. Presents a C++-based programming language for metaclasses, the theory of reflective class-based object-oriented models, the inheritance of metaclass constraints, and basic metaobject protocol used to program new metaclasses that isolate reusable properties. In the process, develops object technology from first principles, and presents examples of their use. Annotation copyrighted by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
