I have a particularly bad time with java forums, and I have a question. I was thinking that this question is more for c/c++ people anyway. I created some functions that I want to use. However, it isn't object oriented and java forces me to put them in a class. So, like the Math class, I made it static. However, static proliferates and is everywhere in my code. I was wondering if there is a better way to do this without shoving all the methods in a class and then making everything static. Java seems to force object orientedness down your throat arg!
