Workspace bug?

Actually, the behavior looks right to me.

The first change I would make is to use a lower case character for the
temporary variable (f) instead of F.
But that's not why you are seeing a "failure".  The instance variable <n>
should not be visible within the scope of the workspace.  After all, that's
why it's encapsulated in the first place.  I recommend you either consider
writing an instance method in FFT that does what you need, or write an
instance accessor method that returns the instance variable if you really need
to be able to "expose" if to the outside world like it's being used in the
workspace example given.

Does that help?
