An explicit master surrogate is a stand-in for a master object. While you can access the master object directly, you will probably use the surrogate instead. For example, in the Taligent Application Environment, using the Window Server you can create a TSystemWindow and have surrogate objects that refer to that system window. Only destroying the master object causes the actual resource to disappear. The surrogate nature of the object is visible, and dangling references are possible.
