Module and class systems have evolved to meet the demand for reuseable software components. Considerable effort has been invested in developing new module and class systems, and in demonstrating how each promotes code reuse. However, relatively little has been said about the interaction of these constructs, and how using modules and classes together can improve programs. In this paper, we demonstrate the synergy of a particular form of modules and classes - called units and mixins, respectively - for solving complex reuse problems in a natural manner.
