It is worth saying a few words on attributes and methods. In the Object
Rexx code generated by the compiler, every WOM attribute corresponds to
two methods, one for setting it to a new value and one for fetching its
current value. These methods have the same name as the attribute,
get respectively --- see the
set methods above.
This use of
set in method names is quite common
amongst Object Rexx programmers, and also in some other object-oriented
languages. JavaBeans follows the same convention, for example. Note that
case in attribute names (and other names) does not matter: both the WOM
compiler and Object Rexx ignore it.
