"Some of the strategies C++ uses to achieve its language-like flexibility illustrate how it makes use of properties that do not appear in speech or writing and are specific to coding systems. Procedural languages work by what is called "early binding;' a process in which the compiler (the part of the code hierarchy that translates higher-level commands into the machine language) works with the linker to direct a function call (a message calling for a particular function to be run) to the absolute address of the code to be executed. At the time of compiling, early binding thus activates a direct link between the program, compiler, and address, joining these elements before the program is actually run. C++, by contrast, uses "late binding;' in which the compiler ensures that the function exists and checks its form for accuracy, but the actual address of the code is not used until the program is run. Late binding is part of what allows the objects to be self-contained with minimum interference with other objects."
Where this is not simply wrong (C++ IS a procedural language and predominantly uses early binding unless virtual inheritance makes it impossible), it is nonsense (the last sentence).
