Xavier Leroy. Objects and classes versus modules in Objective Caml. ICFP'99
This talk was mentioned in a LtU discussion titled "A Good OOP Critique." This talk, however, delas with a much more specific issue.
I am often asked about the distinction between modules and classes, and between ADTs and objects. I am sure I'll be asked again, so it might be useful to remember that these slides exist...
Does Pierce's book discuss this issue? I recently came across draft notes of his about types systems, that discuss this issue explicitly (chp. 13.2.3)
