    Object Oriented Design help!! ;(

    Hello all,

    I love to program, but I am having trouble designing objects that I want to use in my program. Many objects must interact with others, which I know how to do, but I am looking for a website or SOMETHING that focuses specifically on the DESIGN of objects. For example:

    1) What member functions would I need for object?
    2) Data members?
    3) How to write efficient member functions?
    4) How to write efficient class interfaces so objects that need to interact can do so AS SMOOTHLY AS POSSIBLE!!?

    Anyone who has some advice or knows of a book/site (book preferable, I suppose. ), please help!!

    Normally I'd put something clever, but that isn't the point of being here now is it?

    over at gamedev.net there's some articles on program design, reusable code, and game design that address the issues of how to write good reusable code which is pretty much the idea of objects from the way I've seen them used.

    A lot of people find UML a big help for designing classes and systems. A search for UML at google should throw up a million links.
