That's not what he was saying....he was saying that C++ allowed good OOP principals, but does not preclude you from writting procedural code
Fordy is exactly right.
this is not evrything in life. you may be right but i don't believe in this. i use C++ for its flexibility i program for the most part procedurally but sometimes i just cant do without OOP,
so the mix is so absolutly perfect for my needs. eliminating procedural programming is really not neccessary, and i fail to see the reasoning behind it!
I understand that, but why focus on procedural when OOP can do everything? Understanding OOP makes you just that much more valuable to employers.
and is beside the point, i believe that a mix of the two brings maximum effciency, productivity, and makes doing things easy, being locked into OOP is not always an advantage...
but then again this is all just opinion.
