OOP or Object-Oriented Programming is a programming paradigm that is based on the use of a number of entities known as objects to give instructions. When you are using OOP, you will need to define the data type of a data structure as well as the functions that can be used with the data structure. On the other hand, procedural programming is a programming paradigm that is based on the use of functions and data to give instructions, and they can be modified as well.

Unlike OOP, which is based on a real-time application, procedural programming is based on functions and data. In procedural programming where data can easily be manipulated, OOP is object-based programming, and its data can't be accessed because it is hidden. OOP is a better choice for long programs because changes in them can be easily detected, unlike procedural programming, which is step-by-step.

Procedural programming is based on the sequential execution of the instruction. Algorithms are based on information, functions, and the programmer has access to the modification of the units. Since the programming is step by step, it may be challenging to follow up on developments. Some popular OOP languages include JAVA, CH.NET, and VB.NET, and OOP stands for object-oriented programming.

Several objects create it, and an object cannot change the information of another object directly. To obtain information regarding an object, messages, and requests are sent for the data. Some of the popular procedural languages include Perl, C, VB, FORTRAN, and Basic.
