Meta-Object Protocols (MOPs) are an impor- tant aspect of object-oriented re ective pro- gramming. A number of C++ extensions have been implemented that include certain re ective features, however none of these provides a fully featured MOP. In this paper, we describe an extended version of C++ called Iguana that allows various features of the C++ language to be reified and their implementations (dynamically) modified. We show how Iguana an be used to write compiled reflective software.
