NAME

       my - invoke any method of current object

SYNOPSIS

       package require TclOO

       my methodName ?arg ...?
_________________________________________________________________________________________________

DESCRIPTION

       The  my command is used to allow methods of objects to invoke any method of the object (or
       its class). In particular, the set of valid values  for  methodName  is  the  set  of  all
       methods  supported  by  an  object  and  its  superclasses,  including  those that are not
       exported. The object upon which the method is invoked  is  always  the  one  that  is  the
       current context of the method (i.e. the object that is returned by self object) from which
       the my command is invoked.

       Each object has its own my command, contained in its instance namespace.

EXAMPLES

       This example shows basic use of my to use the variables method of  the  oo::object  class,
       which is not publicly visible by default:

              oo::class create c {
                  method count {} {
                      my variable counter
                      puts [incr counter]
                  }
              }
              c create o
              o count               prints "1"
              o count               prints "2"
              o count               prints "3"
