I understand your example of hellicopter, you are saying that C and C++ 
can bring "quality", i understand that, but what you have not understand 
is that i was trying to explain that since C and C++ are difficult and 
complex they hurt the weaker humans among us that finds C and C++ too 
difficult and too complex, so C and C++ will likely create something 
like a darwinian filter who don't let the weaker humans among us humans 
to cross or to climb the social ladder, and we call that social 
darwinism, so the complexity and difficulty of C and C++ language do 
participate to social darwinism, and this is bad i think.
Hope you have understood.



Thank you,
Amine Moulay Ramdane.

Better C/C++ Than C/C++?
I am looking for a good systems programming language that can be used instead of C/C++. My qualifications for the language are: * mature compiler(s) that produce native-code binaries (for Windows) * open source - preferable, but not 100% necessary Thanks, Kevin "Kevin Albrecht" <kevin@albrecht.net> writes: > I am looking for a good systems programming language > that can be used instead of C/C++.

jython and C-c C-c
How do I get C-c C-c to work with jython? I have the jpython command set to jython, and I can start the interpreter with C-C ! and then use C-c C-c, but this is rather frustrating.

C as a Subset of C++ (or C++ as a superset of C)
Isn't it a lame use of human time and effort to maintain completely separate C and C++ standards? As in the words of Betty White about Facebook: "It seems like an incredible waste of time". Why don't the two standards groups get together and agree on a common specification for the ground which both standards cover? There would still be two separate standards, but they'd both be exactly the same for the common ground. The common ground document could be referred to by both standards instead of being maintained by both groups in individual efforts resulting in...

C/C++ in matlab and matlab in C/C++ ?
Is it possible to read C/C++ code in matlab and the other way around too? Hi, as long as C or C++ are written in text files you can edit them in the matlab editor. To see the special character of C or C++ coding language, in the editor go to menus: file>preferences>Edito/Debugger>language and on popup "Language" select "C/C++". This does not allow you to run the C/C++ code, just to view it i nicer way... regards, chris saneman <asdfsdf@asd.com> wrote in message <frl846 $f8i$2@news.net.uni-c.dk>... > Is it possible to read C/C...

C/C++ in MATALB or MATLAB in C/C++?
Hi I've been asking on the net how to use MEX properly so that I can use C/C++ in MATLAB, but information is not forthcoming. There seems to be a lot on using MATLAB in C/C++ but not the other way around. I understand Mathworks is trying very hard to sell the Matlab Compiler, but even so, why is it SO hard to get information about MEX? Or is it that I've missed something very fundamental, meaning that I'm struggling over something that is actually quite easy? Any thoughts and info would be great.

slime C-c C-c annoyance
Does anyone have a good workaround for this problem other than: just be careful! When I've compiled a large package and slime has given me a *slime-compilation* buffer, I like to work through this buffer issue by issue, fixing the errors, warnings, etc. But If I ever press C-c C-c in the editor window while fixing an error, slime destroys the *(slime-compilation* buffer with the compilation output of C-c C-c.

Is this C or C++?
Simple question. If the task is (for example): "Write a C++ program which asks user his name (less than 20 chars) and prints it." Then, is this code a correct answer: char name[100]; cout<<"Your name?"<<endl; cin>>name; cout<<name<<endl; The point being, that the code uses C string "char name[]" and not C++ std::string. C is a subset of C++, so isnt it logically speaking a C++ program? On Tue, 19 Nov 2013 21:44:40 -0000, "crea" <no@com.notvalid> wrote: >Simple question. If the task is (...
