After doing OOP for so many years, I've come to realize that programs are shorter, easier, and simpler to write without it. You don't need classes for basically anything. Take a look at VB, it does everything without classes (except COM) using types and handles.
Quote for horstmann.com:What are your thoughts on OOP? For the majority of all programming, is it truly neccesary?Code:C printf("%10.2f", x); C++ cout << setw(10) << setprecision(2) << showpoint << x; Java java.text.NumberFormat formatter = java.text.NumberFormat.getNumberInstance(); formatter.setMinimumFractionDigits(2); formatter.setMaximumFractionDigits(2); String s = formatter.format(x); for (int i = s.length(); i < 10; i++) System.out.print(' '); System.out.print(s);
