modular programming

[′mäj·ə·lər ′prō‚gram·iŋ]
(computer science)
The construction of a computer program from a collection of modules, each of workable size, whose interactions are rigidly restricted.

modular programming

Breaking down the design of a program into individual components (modules) that can be programmed and tested independently. It is a requirement for effective development and maintenance of large programs and projects.

Modular programming has evolved into object-oriented programming, which provides formal rules for developing self-contained software modules. See object-oriented programming.


Modular Programming
Building a program in modules, or independent routines, is common practice. The module performs a function and then returns control back to the program or instruction that called it. Modular programming has evolved into object-oriented programming, which provides stricter rules for developing self-contained routines.
