OO = Object Oriented

The best definition of OOP that I've heard is the coupling of
data and the functions ("methods" in OO lingo) that act upon
that data. What I can see that's exactly what happens here
with closures ... (or at least the examples I provided are
like that)

OO was huge in the 90s when some programs were even rewritten
just so they would be "OO" as well. Today, not even the C++
guys stress the OO component of their language - instead they
think C++ is great for other reasons.

>From the Python people there were also a huge OO enthusiasm
(Python is from 1991, C++ is as old as from 1983) where even
the language itself was OO - maybe you can tell me/us, if the
OO enthusiasm has quieted down there as well ...

"Smells Like Teen Spirit" is a 1991 Nirvana song from the
album Nevermind.
