      show(Thread.class);
   }
 
   public static void show(Class cls) {
      System.out.println("Class = " + cls.getName());
  
      Class[] c = cls.getClasses();
      System.out.println("Classes = " + Arrays.asList(c));
    
      // returns an array of interfaces
      Class[] i = cls.getInterfaces();
