Formally defined methods and classes for R objects, plus other programming tools, as described in the references.
This package provides the S4 or S version 4 approach to methods and classes in a functional language.
See the documentation entries
GenericFunctions for general discussion of these topics, at a
fairly technical level. Links from those pages, and the
cover the main programming tools needed.
