Imar: that helps very much. I had a vague recollection of this distinction; i.e., a class that did not have to be instantiated to be used; but could not put my finger on the specifics. Thank you for a very clear explanation; it is the shared/static functionality of the class member that allows the class to be used in this way; i.e., without an explicit instantiation in the code. Wow! what an excellent response. I am going to use this forum more often. Thanks again.
