    Default What are Instances? I can't find this anywhere....

    Hey guys, I had a question. To every tutorial I go, I hear "instance". I don't know what this means. I was trying to figure out what static is, and they said that static is for class, and non-static is for instances? What are instances? I can't understand any tutorials because of this block :( Can you try to explain it in a simple way, what instances are, and what static does? Thank you :)


    p.s My book doesn't explain it either :(

    "instance" is just another name for an object.

    I've seen this explained many times on this site and on others, so I will hold off trying to re-iterate that which has been gone over many many times. Please search a little bit more and you'll find these explanations.
