Hi R People:

I have a question about setClass please.  I'm working thru "R
Programming for Bioinformatics".

Actually, I was wondering if there is such a thing as an updateClass,
in order to change a "contains" option, please?

that is, if I had


Fair enough.

Later I want to have a class called "pets".


I want dog to be a subclass of pets.  Do I put in the setClass command
as it stands with the additional contains="pets", or is there an
update form to use, please?

Hope this makes sense.
