Github Shepherd


The Shepherd is the object that loads the set of keys and uses them to construct Sheep objects.

Inheritance notes: - base class is in boring mind machine - boring shepherd base class calls the verify key and the create sheep method - virtual methods that must be implemente by us

Derived Shepherds only need to define: - how to validate keys - how to add sheep to flock

As described in boring mind machine, any mind machine that wants to use the boring shepherd base class should define two methods, each taking a key:

  • validate the key
  • create a Sheep from the key
