I'm processing a tab-delimited text file where I read in a file,
perform a bunch of operations on the items, and then write them out
again to a fixed-width text file.
I've been doing this with a very functional approach:
- loop over lines
- read line into dictionary
- process dictionary values ( format phone numbers and dates and
- pad dictionary values with spaces
- write dictionary values out to file
Anyway, this all works fine. Not knowing much about OO, I'm wondering
if there's a way to approach this from an object-oriented
perspective. Is there anything to be gained? Or is this type of
problem best tackled with a functional approach?
