Abstract: The fundamental features of objected-oriented programming are discussed from a C++ programming language perspective. This discussion focuses on objects, classes and their relevance to the data type system; the principle of information hiding; and the use of inheritance to implement hierarchical relationships. The basic concepts of this approach are characterized in contrast to more traditional procedure-oriented approaches. Drawing on the object-oriented approach, features of a new database model to support astronomical data analysis are presented.
