That's what I love about Java (compared to Object Pascal and C/C++) - no header required. Makes the code so much simpler, and I can drag and drop to reorder methods as needed. Anyway, I think Lazarus IDE can automatically declare methods for you in the interface section - I think. > 2) It shortens bodies, so they can fit in a screen. > 2) It allows me declaring objects near to where they are used and easily > encapsulate variable names. > 3) They save a little of stack. Overall, it's your preference. At least the good thing is, your are breaking up large bodies of code into smaller chuncks. That's a good thing. Alternatively, I'll create a class that does all the work I need. That also makes it easier to unit test. > The cons: Most tools are not very nested routines friendly.
