A constructor is a class public method named _new() called when you create an 
object of this class.

A destructor is a class public method named _free() called when an object of 
this class is destroyed.

To create a constructor or a destructor, just write the corresponding method 
in the class source.

It comes from the BASIC original syntax, where DIM was used to declare arrays. 
Microsoft decided to use this to identify any variable declaration.

In gambas, DIM is not mandatory. You can write :
