comment How can I explain object-oriented programming to someone who's only coded in Fortran 77?
I think she understands the process behind objects. It just that for some reason she doesn't understand the dots. ('.') It's really weird. I guess when you start coding when everything has to be done manually (allocation and stuff) you know how the inner workings of modern languages work without knowing how to work them.

She's wanting to do it in an object oriented way. At minimum she needs to understand how to interface with the apis, which are probably objects and classes. (Note that I haven't done anything with OpenFOAM so that's a bit of a guess.)

She needs to know c++ to work with OpenFOAM, so she'll definitely need to know classes soon. I think she understands the basic ideas behind it. For some reason, though, she seems to be getting stuck on the 'dot structure'. (i.e. System.out.println(), except in c++)
