    The closest to a homework question without it being locked

    You might enjoy this!

    As a long time C# guy, liking it for it's easily readable style, easy control etc, it's coming to the most annoying part of Uni life for a programmer. C++ and C. God they are ugly! I actually have to think about what each line is doing, because it's not clear as to what should be happening!

    More likely you simply lack experience with programming languages that are new to you. This might be compounded by poorly designed example programs.

    C and C++ are hardly ugly languages syntactically. You just lack latitude in your programming experiences.

    C# and C++ are not so different in style that such a claim holds any water.

    I'm very interested to know why matsp is written as it is, and my nick was fixed to not match the original style?

    So, that was someone who wanted to install gcc, and I gave a good link to Code::Blocks that include gcc, but instead the big brother of the OP decided that "No, you have to download the compiler on it's own, we do not want any IDE's here". I may have been a bit tired at the time as well.

    Compilers can produce warnings - make the compiler programmers happy: Use them!
    Please don't PM me for help - and no, I don't do help over instant messengers.
