My object orientated programming skills are really weak. What would be a good reference manual. that I might acquire that would help me with coding in the Processing environment?
I thank you pin advance.
For object oriented programming in general, you can see Java books on OO.
For Processing, how much experience do you have? Have you reviewed:
Under books -- https://processing.org/books/ -- The Nature of Code chapters have many object based examples, such as Particle Systems.
Thank you all for a quick response. To answer your question, I started programming computers in 1960 but left the computer field about the time OO became a real and significant enhancement to software development. I am returning to programming simply because I enjoy it so much BUT I want to do so according "modern" standards.
keep in mind that an OO book on Java (of which there are many good ones) will be broadly applicable to Processing(Java).

There are some classics of the field. The book Design Patterns:
Elements of Reusable Object-Oriented Software is one. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Design_Patterns
