The guiding principle of this style is that you can create reliable pieces that still work when you piece them together, that are understandable, and that are useful. This gives you, the programmer, control over how the parts of your programs run, while enabling you to extend your program as the problems you’re solving evolve. Programming Copes with Change Programs are run on computers that handle real-world problems; and in the real world, plans and circumstances frequently change.
