We are continuing our post series on S3 object orientation and interoperability in R. We have previously discussed what makes a good S3 class and how to choose a good parent for it, as well as when to write or not write a custom method. We have highlighted in particular how classes inheriting from data.frames can simplify user experience because of familiarity, and reduce developer workload due to the pre-existing S3 methods.
