Subclass of Object
The class comment:
Responsible for creating a new class or changing the format of an existing class (from a class definition in a browser or a fileIn). This includes validating the definition, computing the format of instances, creating or modifying the accompanying Metaclass, setting up the class and metaclass objects themselves, registering the class as a global, recompiling methods, modifying affected subclasses, mutating existing instances to the new format, and more.
You typically only need to use or modify this class, or even know how it works, when making fundamental changes to how the ClassBuilder system and language works.
