    Organizing my Codes.

    I'm creating a 2D SDL game right now and I want to organize everything. Do you think making too many classes and functions under them eats a lot of memory?

    instead of making
    Code:
    while( quit== false)
    {
    checkinput()
    draw()
    update()
    fpscap()
    }
    I'll make it.
    Code:
    while( engine.didquit() )
    {
    fps.start()
    player.checkinput()
    sprite.draw()
    sprite.update()
    fps.cap()
    }

    The two snippets don't appear to do the same thing. For example the second is clearly working with certain objects, whereas with the first this is unclear - globals?

    In any case there is no reason to worry about program size. The difference, if any will not be significant and the program itself doesn't seem to be particularly large.
    I might be wrong.

    Thank you, anon. You sure know how to recognize different types of trees from quite a long way away.

    nowadays computers are very fast... you are not programming on micro controller where you must pay a serious attention on every "call, jmp, ret" when you create a function...

    some programmer try to make their program as readable as possible, as reusable as possible, while holding on OOP rules as strong as they can...
