Hello there,

I tried to find out what is the full form of OOPS.
Till OOP is fine (Object Oriented Programming), but when "S" cmoes,
mind comes up with multiple answers - Structure, System.
Also, when i Google it out, some link says there is no meaning of S in OOP.

Can anybody please let me know exact meaning of "S"?

From my understanding and google search, the "S" in OOPS stands for "systems". In fact there is a conference called OOPS conference and it stands for "Object-Oriented Programming Languages & Systems" Conference.

Thank you Tsang for the reply.
Your anology seems to be good for me.
Anybody else please comment on this.

Regards,
Arfeen.
