A struct _is_ somehow the same as a class. The only _real_ difference between 
the two is that members of structs are public by default, while members of 
classes are private by default. Any other difference between the two is 
strictly in your head, and a matter of convention. To the compiler, they're 
exactly the same except for a matter of access.
