The OutRider Computing Journal: Modular Programming

[ Thanks to Jason R. Fink for this link. ]

"The intended audience for this paper is new programmers who wish to know how to create Object Oriented Like Programs in languages that may not have strong built in Object Oriented Methods (like Python or C++) or for Programmers who have only used Object Oriented Languages."

"Object Oriented Programming can actually be a pragma, and I might add, an especially good one to try to follow. I remember the very first time I heard of the concept of Objective C, I had just finished my first C++ class, so obviously, I was coming from a very bad point of view. I spent a lot of time searching for "exactly how Objective C is accomplished" and discovered it was simply a way of doing things vice having prebuilt methods (such as C++ provides) already in place."

This column will examine how C can be written not necessarily objectively but in modules and used for those who like myself are a bit unsure of what it means. It is important to note here that the ideas discussed within this context can be practiced in every language out there, C just makes for an easy example."
