programming The name given in Smalltalk and other
object-oriented languages to a procedure or routine
associated with one or more classes. An object of a
certain class knows how to perform actions, e.g. printing
itself or creating a new instance of itself, rather than the
function (e.g. printing) knowing how to handle different types
of object.
Different classes may define methods with the same name
(i.e. methods may be polymorphic). The term "method" is used
both for a named operation, e.g. "PRINT" and also for the code
which a specific class provides to perform tha
t operation.
