>>Maybe a good rule of thumb is "If you can do it in under XX lines of code, put it in a function file...if not, put it in a class."
Wow! that's spooky, I have just had a discussion with one of our senior developers (java/c#) and we arrived at the agreement that if your coding/programming a general rule of thumb is: if you type a routine out more than once, it should be a function.
And if you do something that is over ~25 lines, you could probably split it up into smaller functions; but I have to disagree with her on that last one! It depends on the context of what your doing.
Yes, I too am looking forward to more posts here, to see what sorts of opinions are out there.
