    Question Class vs Function

    I have a question about classes and functions. When to use which one? After some research I came to the conclusion always to use classes (OOP) except if I need to pass a parameter. Am I correct or is there more to it than just a parameter?

    It is way more.

    You need to read through a basic tutorial, because the words you're saying don't even really match what you're trying to describe.

    C/C++ have functions. Java has methods.

    What is a class?

    Java methods.
