Containers, Blocks, and Iterators



A jukebox with one song is unlikely to be popular (except perhaps in some very, very scary bars), so pretty soon we'll have to start thinking about producing a catalog of available songs and a playlist of songs waiting to be played. Both of these are containers: objects that hold references to one or more other objects.

Both the catalog and the playlist need a similar set of methods: add a song, remove a song, return a list of songs, and so on. The playlist may perform additional tasks, such as inserting advertising every so often or keeping track of cumulative play time, but we'll worry about these things later. In the meantime, it seems like a good idea to develop some kind of generic SongList class, which we can specialize into catalogs and playlists.
