     Probably useful if you want to learn about polymorphism, objects and collections. This is an example of polymorphism running out of control. 1000 generic Beast-class objects are created, each assigned to be either a Dog, Cat, or Mouse. Then, using calls to the Beast class, they try to eat each other, until only one (the biggest) remains. Try messing around with it ... a larger animal can only eat a smaller one, except in the case of mice who can eat an animal of the same size - it's only fair, they start so small.

Note: Due to the size or complexity of this submission, the author has submitted it as a .zip file to shorten your download time. Afterdownloading it, you will need a program like Winzip to decompress it.Virus note:All files are scanned once-a-day by Planet Source Code for viruses, but new viruses come out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them. For your own safety, please:
  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.
  3. Scan the source code with Minnow's Project Scanner

If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net including:McAfee.com
