[REBOL] Object Oriented design

From: pat665::ifrance::com at: 6-Jan-2002 19:35

Hi all, I don't know how to program anymore (did I before ?) because I'm very confused about Object Oriented design. When I started with computer, my reference book was "Algorithms + Data structures = Programs" by Niklaus Wirth. I was satisfied with this equation at the time, I am not anymore. Is it a virus ? Have I read already too much about C++ or UML ? May be. But I would like to know it by myself. I have the feeling that object orientation could be the way to produce more elegant program, even with Rebol. After reading a couple of books, I feel very frustrated. The subliminal message is OOP can do that, OOP is elegant, you save time with OOP, etc. Yeah ... but what is it, how can one do ? Wirth book was very practical: you want to sort? do that or that, you want to build a compiler? see this little one. I was just finishing Grady Booch's book "Object Solutions" this evening when I spoke to myself: - who can I ask for advice? - where to find good programmers? As often in life, solutions were just in front of me : the rebol-listers ! So I'm coming to you for a good book about "Object Oriented design". Patrick ps: how do I program today ? I think a lot, write some notes, looking for generic solution. When I am confident with the solution, I start programming. During programming, I almost everytime find my generic solution is not so generic. I finish the program anyway and sometimes it works. At this time, I have a new solution but I would have to restart from scratch.
