Then it isn't very anonymous is it?
Then the object is anonymous but the reference is not?
I might be wrong.
Quoted more than 1000 times (I hope).Thank you, anon. You sure know how to recognize different types of trees from quite a long way away.
But the reference can't be rebound, so for all intents and purposes, it is the object.
Or in other words: a reference is an alias, an alternative name for an object. If there is no primary name, then the alias is the only name.
All the buzzt!
