modular programming - Computer Definition
Breaking down the design of a program into individual components (modules) that can be programmed and tested independently. It is a requirement for effective development and maintenance of large programs and projects. Modular programming has evolved into object-oriented programming, which provides formal rules for developing self-contained software modules. See object-oriented programming.
