I am working on an OOP project, and cannot decide which way to follow when I have to write a simple function.
For example, I want to write a function which generates a random string. In an OOP environtment, it is a matter of course to create a static class and a static method for that. But why? Isn't it more elegant, if I implement such a simple thing as a plain function? Not to mention that a function is more efficient than a class method.
So, in object-oriented programming, what is the best practice to implement such a simple function?
