Turbo Pascal Oop

Turbo Pascal OOP refers to the object-oriented programming extensions integrated into Borland's Turbo Pascal. These extensions allowed users to create and manipulate user-defined objects within their code, giving them access to inheritance, encapsulation, polymorphism, and dynamic dispatch. The language gained popularity in the late 80s and early 90s among programmers who wanted a smoother transition from procedural paradigms to object-oriented methodologies without migrating to more complex languages like C++. To support these new programming capabilities, Borland released various versions of Turbo Pascal with improved support for OOP concepts before ultimately evolving into Delphi.
