Opinions are like posterior openings of the alimentary canal. Everybody
has got one, and they all stink.

And pick a better Usenet alias. Looks like you're a teenager who's
obsessed with his genitals.

Robert C. Martin said it best, probably here. If you define "OO" as language
support for virtual methods, then the statement "OO sucks" is the same as
the statement "virtual methods suck", which is trivially false.

Show me a technology that can't be abused; I'l show you one that's useless.

TopMind is a well known crock. He has no idea what he's talking about. He
also considers prepared statements and higher order functions useless.

Yes the article is off-topic.
I don't know the person who wrote the article.
But I would like to add the following truisms:

There should not be absolutes in programming.
The only absolute is that the software should work and work well.
A tool (procedural/OOP/relational) is only as good as the workman using
it.
IMHO, programming is more about workmanship than so-called 'paradigms'.
For every example of bad OOP programming, one example of bad procedural
programming can be shown. The reverse is also true.

I regularly mix all 3 approaches in my work. I do not deride any
approach.
Instead I try to learn each one as best as I can and endeavour to use
it
well. If you are starting out as a programmer you would be well advised
to
study the procedural underpinnings of the OOP language of your choice.

My parsers are written using lex/yacc, which generate C code that
interfaces
with some more C code that then interfaces with C++ code.
