in reply to Experimenting with other programming languages...

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.
