Differences between Procedural(POP) and Object Oriented Programming(OOP)
OOP (Object-Oriented Programming) and POP (Procedural Oriented Programming) are two different programming models or approaches. The Key Difference between OOP and POP is in the below table.
- OOP (Object-Oriented Programming) and POP (Procedural Oriented Programming) both have different features and functionalities, here is a comparison of some key features between them.
|OOP (Object-Oriented Programming)||POP (Procedural Oriented Programming)|
|Emphasizes objects and their interactions||Emphasizes procedures and functions|
|Data is encapsulated within objects||Data is separate from procedures|
|Supports inheritance between classes||Does not support inheritance|
|Object-oriented programming follows a bottom-up approach.||Procedural programming follows a top-down approach.|
|Overloading is possible in object-oriented programming.||In procedural programming, overloading is not possible.|
|Examples: C, FORTRAN, Pascal, Basic, etc.||Examples: C++, Java, Python, C#, etc.|
