Introduction to OOP: Chapter 16 : A Case Study : The STL [previous] [audio] [real] [text]

The Future of OOP

Given that the STL is not OO, does this mean that OOP is dead?

No, only that inspiration can come from a number of sources, and not all problems are best solved in an OOP fashion.

However, many problems ARE best approached in an OOP manner.

Bottom line - know as much as you can about as many styles of programming as you can, and use the style most appropriate to the problem.
