Except for one thing, that, every one will wonder why he has to hate a language so much, as, to develop a website for his ousting of emotions. I really find him relevant in his views. I do not mind that someone expresses what he finds bad in a popular tool of software programing.
Well, it seems like most objections are based on:
1. You mustn't generate assembler code, since it make the compiled code unportable.
2. You mustn't have a possibility for the compiler vendor to extend the language, or have any oppurtunity for the compiler vendor to have bugs in the compiler. [I don't know which language would actually fulfill a guarantee of not having bugs in the interpretation, code generation or runtime stages - although seeing such bugs are quite rare in a stable language on a stable OS with an established compiler].
3. Many choices in a language makes it bad (apparently), since it means that no one can learn the entire language. Well, yeah, that may be so.
I can't say I'm 100% up to speed with C++ after having worked for 9 months or so in a C++ only environment (although I've done a lot work on a driver written by a third party using C - but test-code and our interface code is in C++).
Compilers can produce warnings - make the compiler programmers happy: Use them!
