Data-directed programming is a programming technique mentioned in the seminal textbook: Structure and Interpretation of Computer Programs. Essentially it is a "dispatch" technique on procedures for integrating separately developed data-type (e.g., class) modules, based on the programmers manual setup of dynamic tables for procedure access. In modern object-oriented programming languages it is implemented as polymorphism.
