And please be specific. Don't tell me something general like it increases
code re-usibility.

Who said it was? For some things OO is better, for others procedural is
better. I would say the same for all OO languages I have programmed in, and
I often mix the two in a project.

If you want specific answers you should make specific question, shouldn't
you? ;-) In computer science you can never say "A is better than B" without
first considering what you need to do.

I want to build a large customized content management system in PHP. Should
I use OO or procedural?

I never went to computer science school.

You should probably use an existing content management system.

Otherwise, yes, you should use OO or procedural.

I am actually re-writing my large customized content management system the
OO way, using PEAR libraries. For 2 reasons:
1. I want to learn how to write OO and how to use the advantages of PEAR
packages
2. it increases code readability and re-usibility ;-) and thus makes it
easier to maintain, update and enlarge the program

What more do you want to be told? Your programming style is essential for
you, but not for your project. It does not affect the functions, usability,
or design of your system.

Then you need to decide for yourself which is more appropriate

OO is not better than Procedural, just different. Take a look at

That answer is also crap. It is possible to write acres of reusable code
without using OO at all. It is also possible to use OO techniques and
produce code that is virtually unusable.

The paradigm (OO or Procedural) is irrelevant. It is all down to how you
implement it.
