I am very sorry if it has been asked before, but i have not found it anywhere.

The question is: How do abstract methods in interfaces, and abstract classes work? I have a little knowledge about how they work in Java but I have not programmed in a while and, trying to do so again, i have had many problems making it work in xmonkey.

Thank you to everyone.

Sincerelly, Sullivan.

An abstract class is a class with one or more abstract methods. You can't instantiate such a class, only extended classes that implement all the abstract methods,

An interface has only abstract methods, so you don't need the Abstract keyword when declaring them. A class can only extend one class, but it can implement as many interfaces as it wants.

It's quite similar to Java, really.
