thanks for replying. I had looked at the examples "vi *.C"
basically and went through them and read the Overview and all the other
documents under docs. I've done c++ coding before too but is still a bit
I'm still trying to get down flat the representation and the operators. I
think I've identified a question that will answer all my sub questions -
How do I implement the "closure" property in galib and in which classes
do I do this? There was only a little mention of this in the overview.
