Structured programming works with readable code and reusable program components. Modern programming languages support structured programming, although programming languages use different syntax. It is also possible to reuse modules written in different programming languages as long as they are based on a common programming interface. Unlike unstructured programming languages, structured programming facilitates structured approaches.
The different types of structured programming include procedural programming, where modules are defined as procedures and functions that can be called with a set of parameters to solve a task. Furthermore, object-oriented programming( OOP) belongs to it, in which a program is defined as a set of objects or resources to which commands are transferred, and furthermore model-based programming belongs to it, which is used in the programming of databases and works with code units when accessing databases.
Structured programming was developed by Nassi-Shneiderman and has been among the strongest impulses for productive program development since the 1960s. It made the programming simpler and safer up to the error detection; besides it formed the bases for the modularization of the programs and for a program structure, which makes the purposeful answering possible to the different requirements in the system-technical level and user level.
