Design Patterns Implementaion

just  a thought,
  do design patterns means the need of a OO paradigm when it comes to implementation or can it be done in either a functional paradigm or imperative one as well?

depends on the pattern. Some require OO some don't.

A quote from the first hit:

"no mention of deisgn patterns using a imperative paradigm? "

Oh there is plenty of mention with the ivory tower academians who sit around and pontificate what to name this stuff all day long.

...the rest of us are actually implementing it, but not too terribly concerned about foisting fancy sounding names on it.
