OOP in Rev...

me too like rOOP, but I feel it is a little incomplete, just one more 
step. The ones that you call real objects are limited to user interface 
controls only. The thing I was curious about is a possibility to create 
an independent data object which is nor control neither a gui element. 
Which in this case may simply mean enhanced arrays...

What for ?.   I think this would make code cleaner and reduce amount of 
commenting in larger projects.. Also facilitate creation or adoptions of 
existing  libraries in C or C++ for very specific purposes - like 
reading shapefiles, netcdfs, doing geographical transformations, 
astronomy, bioinformatics, etc... This consequently will increase the 
scope of applications that can be created in Rev and hopefully 
availability of diverse libraries.

In general it would make creation of complex software easier. We can 
already simulate objects using arrays, but at least the code would be 
more readable (!!!) if I were able to distinguish array operations from 
object manipulations.

Best wishes
