  • I am a programmer, and I DON’T prefer object-oriented programming. I lean toward functional programming.

    Anyway, as Abelson says “It’s all air”. cons (construct cell) car (first of cell) cdr (second of cell) are normally considered “fundamental” with lists – first is the data, and second is a pointer to the rest of the list. But, as Abelson shows in “Structure and Interpretation of Computer Programs”, if you have first-class functions and closures:

    (define (cons x y)

    ..(lambda (m)

    ….(cond

    ……((= m ) x)

    ……((= m ) y))))

    (define (car z) (z ))

    (define (cdr z) (z ))

    works as definitions of cond, car, cdr. cons returns a function, that, if invoked with an argument of , returns the first part of the cell, and with an argument of , the second part. Indeed, you can easily add to it (say, to make triplets, etc.).

    Oh… and you notice that the function has methods? x and y are not accessible, except by calling the anonymous returned function with an argument. This is “object oriented programming”, even though it is a function that is a closure over x and y.

    Is your head hurting?

    As to the “answer”

    – data and methods are encapsulated and may be easier to reason about. Isolation helps.

    – classes can model the problem domain

  • Who said that programmers prefer object-oriented programs? Object-oriented programming is just another in a long series of programming fads, and neither helps nor hurts the profession. Good programmers know this.

  • I like procedural programming.

    I debate this often with colleagues. They claim an advantage of having useful reusable classes. I claim, I know how to write organized sub-routines and functions. To top it off I can get done with a project quicker since I spend time thinking about the best way to write code. Not the efficient way to organize OOP structure.

  • OOP is encapsulation, therefore you can locate the line of code you want to evaluate because Objects have a name grouping () values () states () behaviors.

    The objective of OOP is to have a common named method() and loop over a collection of Objects invoking one line of code — one command different behaviors across different Object types.

  • . adding data structures is much more straightforward

    . building a modular program is much easier
