( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
This may not be quite the place to post this, but I had a nightmare last night where a lecturer was telling me that the final exam would to to code a C app in the exam. I can remember begging him to choose any other language, even C++

This dream was especially strange, since I don't do Computer Science.

Having got that off my chest, I have dabbled in quite a few languages and appreciate the use for them all. And I have learnt to keep my mouth shut when I'm told that Coolgen or their mangled java implementation is the wave of the future. It really doesn't matter, although it is a bit worrying when they start talking about 'crushing the competition' and whatnot.

And if you want to see attitude, you just have to find a C programmer and start a discussion about best languages. (Please no flames. I know many here are C coders, but you know about the people I'm talking about).

I didn't believe in evil until I dated it.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
