Definition of Procedural Programming

By

Definition: Before Object Oriented Programming (OOP) was popular, computer software was written in a Procedural style.

This meant that the application was divided into a large number of procedures. C is largely procedural, and to a certain degree C++ and C# are as well.

A popular design methodology was "Structured Programming" but that has been rendered obsolete by OOP.
