- One-line functions that are called only once 11 answers
Most of my programming experience is in OOP where I have fully embraced the concepts thereof including encapsulation. Now I'm back to structured programming where I have a tendency to logicaly seperate my code using subprocedures. For example, if I have a large switch case (30 cases or more), I'll put that in it's own procedure so the main method looks a little "neater". Generally, subprocedures are used to help keep things DRY, but in some instances these logical seperations I create usually amount to being used only once.
Some of my code was being reviewed, and it was mentioned that this is a bad idea. His backing to this claim is that it muddies the water and "unecessarily hides" code. Instead, he insists that a subprocedure MUST be used more than once to merit making a subprocedure out of a section of code. While this idea of "hiding code" is a common place in OOP, he does admit to having little to no understanding of OOP concepts and has only ever worked with structured programming.
Is there any backing to his claim or is this merely programming dogma?
