Techopedia Explains Object-Oriented Programming Language (OOPL)

Unlike conventional procedural languages, the programming syntax of object-oriented programming language is based on one or more objects, whereas procedural language incorporates logical procedures. In OOPL, objects interact with each other; have their own methods, procedures and functions; are part of a class and may be reused in one or more program. An OOPL must exhibit native object-oriented functions, including data abstraction, inheritance, encapsulation, class creation and associated objects.

Most modern programming languages are object-oriented or support the OOP model to an extent. Popular OOPLs include Java, C++, Python and SmallTalk.
