object-oriented programming

object-oriented programming in Science
object-oriented programming  
A schematic paradigm for computer programming in which the linear concepts of procedures and tasks are replaced by the concepts of objects and messages. An object includes a package of data and a description of the operations that can be performed on that data. A message specifies one of the operations, but unlike a procedure, does not describe how the operation should be carried out. C++ is an example of an object-oriented programming language.
