Urgent ! What does the class reference contain?
Posted by Ujjwal Verma on August 31, 2000 at 10:58 PM
When we make a class reference variable by writing say
"graphics g" then what actually goes in "g" , prototypes of all the methods + address of class "graphics" or just the prototypes of all the methods found in the "graphics class" .
Secondly when we make an object reference by writing say
"A obj1=new A()" then what actually goes in "obj1" , Address of the class copy made in memory + prototypes of all the methods in that copy or just the address of that copy of class .
