Why is a class called an abstraction of an object?
|Added at||2016-12-29 02:12|
I understand that a class is essentially a blueprint of an object, but the idea that a class is an 'abstraction' of an object is a little hard for me to wrap my head around... If anyone could tell me the real meaning of the statement: "A class is an abstraction of an object", I'd be really grateful.
My confusion is because this statement has been interpreted differently by different people...
Does 'abstraction' mean:
or does it mean that:
