in reply to Dots and cargo-cult programming

Why blaim VB? why not blaim consistancy with Java, Delphi, C, C++ et al?

I'm from a strong C/++ background, and find no issue with doing object->method() et al -- let's face it, most C++ code, you only ever have pointers to objects if you want to do anything non trivial.

Regarding the digression on using . for string concatination, I believe through the mists of my memory that at some point duing my studies at Essex University that it comes from some branch of mathematics (which is essentially where all programming originates). I forget which branch and also whether this is just my memory eludin me -- If I remember, I shall check my notes this evening.
