The benefits of object-oriented programming are well known but popular operating systems provide very few object oriented features to users and few are im plemented using object oriented techniques themselves In this paper we discuss a mechanism for apply ing object oriented programming concepts to program binding linking and execution We describe OMOS an object meta object server that embodies a exible object framework The OMOS framework projects an object oriented structure onto programs and shared li braries that may not have been originally developed for use within an object oriented environment This framework provides natural facilities for inheritance interposition and overloading of operations as well as development of classes with dynamically evolving behavior ??
