( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

Well I'm not sure that we are disagreeing. :-) My point was that the two tend to lean different ways, not that well designed software wouldn't use the most appropriate form of relationship regardless of its intent. Also I guess I was griping a bit, has-a relationships are IMO underused, and IME often more useful than is-a relationships.

Further to my original point, I think of lot of programmers, especially less experienced programmers (but not at all exclusively), tend to forget that OO can be used simply as a form of encapsulation that makes organizing their code easier. They get so distracted by all the subtleties of inheritance and overloading and polymorphism that they forget that OO can be used in simple ways to achieve complex goals in manageable ways. In fact one of the reasons I like perl and its anonymous subroutines/closures is related to this. Its a simple way to define what is more or less a single method class/object that encapsulates its data conveniently. The classic case is a counter object versus a counter closure.

    [1nickt]: ...modern car. Suggests using TLA+ or other software modeling language to autogenerate code.
    1nickt is not sure more and more layers separating the programmer from the program is the right way to go...
    [holli]: happy one, shmem ;)
    [1nickt]: I had an interview couople of weeks ago, heard from a principal engineer that a friend of his who works at The Google told him that the self-teaching software that determines the dynamic pricing for their adverts...
    [1nickt]: ... has become so complex that there is no one at the Goole who knows what it does.
    [marto]: William Gibson was right
    [moritz]: a classical problem with machine learning
    [1nickt]: moritz isn;t the difference today that the machine learning algos are in charge of most stuffs?
    [moritz]: depends on what you mean by "most stuff"
    [1nickt]: I am sure I don't know about most of the stuff that is no longer controlled by humans. I do know that it's past the point of determining consumer pricing and into things that can kill me with blunt force!
