Yes indeed - we call that smaller, cleaner language, "C". :-p

I just happened upon this quotation from ken the other day which nicely sums up his feelings about C++:

[C++] certainly has its good points. But by and large I think it's a bad language. It does a lot of things half well and itís just a garbage heap of ideas that are mutually exclusive. Everybody I know, whether itís personal or corporate, selects a subset and these subsets are different. So itís not a good language to transport an algorithmóto say, "I wrote it; here, take it." Itís way too big, way too complex. And itís obviously built by a committee. Stroustrup campaigned for years and years and years, way beyond any sort of technical contributions he made to the language, to get it adopted and used. And he sort of ran all the standards committees with a whip and a chair. And he said "no" to no one. He put every feature in that language that ever existed. It wasn't cleanly designedóit was just the union of everything that came along. And I think it suffered drastically from that.

Title:
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 How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
