Fall2002 Midterm Review: Get the story right!

Answers:

a. The first real programming language was called Simula-67. Each simulation in Simula-67 had its own class, much like each object in Smalltalk or C++ belongs to a class. Furthermore, the an object's insides (in C++ private data members, in Smalltalk, instance variables) couldn't be changed at an outside level. This idea of encapsulating data was used in both as well. Simula-67 also had simultaneous processes (each of the objects working together), much like Smalltalk's Process class or multi-threaded applications in C++.

b.Providing a multimedia programming interface simple enough for people of all ages.
