The user's program views an abstract object through a small number of
functions which modify the state of the object. Any changes in the
algorithms used for these functions, or the internal state
representation, are not directly visible to the using program. Thus
only a small number of programs depend on the internal state
representation, and they can be collected together in a single module.
This is very similar to the form of modularization proposed by D. L.
