    Not possible, unless you significantly limit the meaning of the term "abstract class".

    From a OO-design perspective, for example, an abstract class is typically defined as a class that must be derived (or inherited) from if it is to be used - and C does not support any form of inheritance.

    It is possible to use C structs to represent some aspects of classes but significant care is needed in managing the usage of those structs.
    Right 98% of the time, and don't care about the other 3%.
