Characteristics of procedure-oriented programming, Programming Languages

Characteristics of procedure-oriented programming:

  • Emphasis is on doing things (algorithms).
  • Large programs are divided into smaller programs known as functions.
  • Most of the functions share global data.
  • Data move openly around the system from function to function.
  • Functions transform data from one form to another.
  • Employs top-down approach in program design.

POP has two major drawbacks, namely

  • Data moves freely around the program and therefore vulnerable to changes caused by any function in the program
  • POP does not model the real world problems very well. This is because functions are action-oriented and do not really correspond to the elements of the problem.
