From Wikipedia.org entry for OOP:

The idea behind object-oriented programming is that a computer program is composed of a collection of individual units, or objects, that act on each other, as opposed to a traditional view in which a program is a list of instructions to the computer. Each object is capable of receiving messages, processing data, and sending messages to other objects.

Object-oriented programming is claimed to give more flexibility, easing changes to programs, and is widely popular in large scale software engineering. Furthermore, proponents of OOP claim that OOP is easier to learn for those new to computer programming than previous approaches, and that the OOP approach is often simpler to develop and to maintain, lending itself to more direct analysis, coding, and understanding of complex situations and procedures than other programming methods.
