[Bioc-devel] implementing interfaces

hi all, this will probably demonstrate my lack of knowledge concerning
OOP in R, but I am hoping for some quick answers. This is a problem I
have faced before.
I want to use the method bg.correct.mas, this method takes as its
object an AffyBatch. I don't have an AffyBatch nor do I want to
massage my data structures into such an object, so I want to implement
the AffyBatch interface. However, I can see no way to determine the
list of generics which have methods defined on AffyBatch (and
superclasses). I understand that things are method-centric, however I
assume that being method-centric still leaves room for a way to know
the methods specialized for a class/interface so that I as a
programmer can define the suitable methods on a new class without
having to dig around all over the place determining what I need to
define. My question is:
is there a function to determine all the methods that are specialized
for a certain class? Also, would it be possible to write a function
adheresTo(classA, classB), which tells me that classB satisfies the
calling requirements of classA (forget for a moment that we have
public member variables).
note, i don't want to make a subclass of AffyBatch.
