Difference between POP (Procedure Oriented Programming) and OOP (Object Oriented Programming)
In this tutorial, we will Learn:
What are the basic differences between the POP (Procedure Oriented Programming) and OOP (Object Oriented Programming)?
|Emphasis is given more to procedures (functions)||Emphasis is given more to data in OOP|
|The programming task is divided into a collection of data structures and methods or functions.||The programming task is divided into objects (consisting of data members and associated member functions)|
|Procedures are being separated from data being manipulated||Procedures are not separated from data, instead, procedures and data are combined together and put into a class|
|A piece of code uses the data to perform the specific task||The data uses the piece of code to perform the specific task|
|Data is moved freely from one function to another function using function parameters.||Data is hidden (using private and protected access specifiers) and can be accessed only by member functions, not by an external function.|
|Data is not secure in POP||Data is secure OOP due to the use of access specifiers|
|POP follows the top-down approach to solve the problem||OOP follows the bottom-up approach to solve the problem|
|As the size of the program increases the debugging becomes difficult||Irrespective of the size of the code the debugging is simple and easier in OOP.|
In this article, we understood the basic differences between the POP (Procedure Oriented Programming) and OOP (Object Oriented Programming).
