  Advanced OOP: Multimethods
Subject:   Not sure where one would use this?
Date:   2003-06-17 23:24:30

Hi,


As a person who has built object-oriented
systems in C++, Python, and perl I'm a
bit confused by the examples chosen.
Eg. I almost never have to switch on the
type of something, except perhaps as a
safety check on a method's argument.


Perhaps the next article could be
about changing an existing class
which has a deep inheritance hierarchy
to use Dispatch. Eg. SimpleHTTPServer.


Thanks.
