Hello Charlie,

i have also been working on embedded for some time and always wanted to apply (unsuccessfully) OOP approach to my designs, mostly because of lack of proper tools,in the last years i found python and my point of view has changed.

at this moment i work for a company that makes battery chargers, most of them have been migrated from a totally analog control to a microcontrolled one, there were several embedded programmers involved, each one of them working on his own so you can imagine the kind of mess that exist in software.

founding concepts of OOP you mention are powerful but, like any other tool, you have to choose the one that fits the best to your particular application.

In my case i use a python (a GUI and some scripts on the PC side) to generate C++ code for embedded automatically, and OOP paradigm is the thing that glues all together. here the software changes frequently, and this approach allows those changes to be applied quickly.

using the previous approach to modify an existing application usually takes several days of code reading in order to understand how it works and then apply the required changes.

regards
jdavila
