[REBOL] Object Oriented design
From: pat665::ifrance::com at: 6-Jan-2002 19:35
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
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".
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.
