  Procedural programming
Procedural programming is a programming paradigm based upon the concept of the modularity and scope of program code (i.e., the data viewing range of an executable code statement).
A main procedural program is composed of one or more moduless (also called packagess or unitss), either coded by the same programmer or pre-coded by someone else and provided in a code library.
Procedural programming should not be confused with the orthogonal concept of imperative programming.

 Procedural programming in TutorGig Encyclopedia
Procedures, also known as routines, subroutines, methods, or functions (not to be confused with mathematical functions, but similar to those used in functional programming) simply contain a series of computational steps to be carried out.
Procedural programming is often a better choice than simple sequential or unstructured programming in many situations which involve moderate complexity or which require significant ease of maintainability.
To be considered a procedural, a programming language should support procedural programming by having an explicit concept of a procedure, and a syntax to define it.

 Why Procedural is the Wrong First Paradigm if OOP is the Goal
Procedural Programming: Pascal and Modula-2 were designed to fit as well as possible with the procedural paradigm.
In any case, the lesson to be learned from procedural programming is that the nature of the solution to a problem is that it is a process or a set of actions.
Good procedural programs can be constructed by OOP programmers because they will naturally partition their programs into object-like units of functionality even though they don’t have the encapsulation tools that they are used to in the OOP world.

 What Language Do You Need? Comparing Programming Languages - Cprogramming.com
These days, programming languages are becoming more and more general and all-purpose, but they still have their specializations, and each language has its disadvantages and advantages.
Scripting languages are often procedural and may contain elements of object-oriented languages, but they fall into their own category because they are typically not meant to be full-fledged programming languages with support for large system development.
The take home message is that different programming languages have their advantages and disadvantages, and picking the appropriate language for the task is often an important step in the process of developing an application or program.

Procedural Programming was the first kind of programming to develop, and involves a relatively simple way of doing things.
In procedural programming, the computer is given a set of instructions which it executes, and then waits for input, which it reacts to by executing another set of instructions, and so on.
In point of fact, procedural programming is at the heart of all programming, including object-oriented, but because certain kinds of objects have many characteristics in common (such as windows, for example), it is more convenient to treat them as objects, rather than as sets of instructions.

 Simple Procedural and Block Structured
Few years later, C was developed and replaced B. Logical programming began in the early 1970's.Prolog originated from work in the early 1970s by Robert A Kowalski of Edinburgh University (now at Imperial College, London) and Alain Colmerauer of the University of Aix-Marseille.
In addition, more modern practices like data types and structured programming were developing during the 1960s.The language could be compile in one pass, and a recursive descent parsing algorithm was used to develop the initial Pascal compiler.
This is because procedural programs are an ordered sequence of statements and procedure calls that are sequentially evaluated.

 Procedural < Know < TWiki   (Site not responding. Last check: )
A procedural program is written as a list of instructions, telling the computer, step-by-step, what to do: Open a file, read a number, multiply by 4, display something.
What is more, procedural programming has a built-in way of splitting big lists of instructions into smaller lists: the function.
Thus, the whole program may need to be examined in order to understand even a small portion of code.

 Procedural Programming Languages
In order to keep the program small and efficient, these calls are not used in some MS-DOS implementations of C, and the memory space is limited though it is still adequate for most programs.
The impact of dynamic allocation can be appreciated when programming data storage that occurs at different times in the program, and consequently allowing us to share the same area of memory for all data.
Thus for example, if you had a program that used several large data storage areas, but not at the same time, you could load one block storing it dynamically, then overwrite the space with the next large block of data.

 Why I Prefer Procedural/Relational
I generally do not have to do this that often with procedural code, at least not reasonably-well designed code (which may not be the minority, unfortunately).
OOP attempts to empower programming languages themselves, while p/r tends to farm off key forms of complexity to relational technology, reducing the role of code altogether.
The procedural paradigm has not died, it has simply found its place as the Yin to the Yang (or is that Yang to the Yin?).

 OOP Criticism
The inheritance and aggregation model of OOP tends to assume the world can be cleanly modeled as hierarchical classification and/or nested structures, or at least into mutually-exclusive divisions (a flat tree), when in fact this is often not the case.
Also, many programmers mistakenly use C as representative of procedural languages and are glad to move on to C++, which does offer more power simply because it has more features and vendor tools for it.
Garbage collection in procedural programming usually comes about by having the end of a routine or end of the program automatically close out the structures and mark the memory as available for other uses.

 Procedural Application Programming Interface
Since all API will eventually reach machine code, saying Java APIs are wrappers around procedural is the same as saying all APIs are wrappers around machine code, or by extension, the "heart" of all programs are machine code.
Any procedural language can implement OOP just pass an object as a parameter to your methods: method(object, parms) in procedural is the same as object.method(parms) in OOP.
I didn't say procedural programming couldn't have these features, but they'd be implemented differently, with something like modules.

 Introducton to Web Programming | Limitations of Procedural-Oriented Programming
Unfortunately, there are no great tools for abstraction and modularization in procedural languages...thus, it is hard to add new functionality or change the work flow without going back and modifying all other parts of the program.
Not only does procedural code have a tendency to be difficult to understand, as it evolves, it becomes even harder to understand, and thus, harder to modify.
Procedural-oriented programming is actually very powerful, so don't let the hype make you think that it has no place in your arsenal of programming tools.

 Functional vs. Procedural Programming Language   (Site not responding. Last check: )
It has only a few of the basic functional programming constructs that characterize a functional language and its pattern-matching capabilities are very limited.
Functional programming is particularly useful for mathematical work, where the notion of ``function'' is already a well established concept.
Mathematica is, in essence, a functional programming language that is implemented as a term rewriting system with very extensive pattern-matching capabilities; one can program in Mathematica using the procedural style of programming (e.g., using Do loops) but it is definitely preferable to adopt the functional or rule-based style.
