  From  The  Free  On-line  Dictionary  of  Computing  (13  Mar  01)  [foldoc]: 
 
  class 
 
  1.    The  prototype  for  an  {object}  in  an 
  {object-oriented  language};  analogous  to  a  {derived  type}  in  a 
  {procedural  language}.  A  class  may  also  be  considered  to  be  a 
  set  of  objects  which  share  a  common  structure  and  behaviour. 
  The  structure  of  a  class  is  determined  by  the  {class 
  variables}  which  represent  the  {state}  of  an  object  of  that 
  class  and  the  behaviour  is  given  by  a  set  of  {methods} 
  associated  with  the  class. 
 
  Classes  are  related  in  a  {class  hierarchy}.  One  class  may  be 
  a  specialisation  (a  "{subclass}")  of  another  (one  of  its 
  "{superclasses}")  or  it  may  be  composed  of  other  classes  or  it 
  may  use  other  classes  in  a  {client-server}  relationship.  A 
  class  may  be  an  {abstract  class}  or  a  {concrete  class}. 
 
  See  also  {signature}. 
 
  2.    See  {type  class}. 
 
  3.    One  of  three  types  of  {Internet  addresses}

  3.    A  language  developed  by  the  {Andrew  Project}. 
  It  was  one  of  the  first  attempts  to  add  {object-oriented} 
  features  to  {C}.
