Are nested classes going to have Java or C++ behaviour ?

the following code, will not compiler with two classes that define a nested
class with the same name. but operator new require the full name to be
supplied, but the class name doe no seem to show that it have been nested,
if this desired behaviour or due to the alpha implementation ?

class Test
{
 int i;
 class Foo
 {
  int bar;
 }
}

// will not compile as Foo's clash! comment is class out to see the other
foo's name.
class Other
{
 int i;
 class Foo
 {
  int bar;
 }
}


int main ( char[][] args )
{
/* Object o = new Foo(); // not valid */
 Object o = new Test.Foo();
 ClassInfo ci = o.classinfo;
 printf( " class name %s\n", (char*)ci.name );
 return 0;
}

is there a way to get a ClassInfo without an instance of an object ?

It'll have C++ like behavior, not Java inner classes. To get .classinfo for
class Foo without an instance of Foo, use Foo.classinfo. I know this is
broke in the current alpha, but I have it fixed and that'll get uploaded
soon.
