    have you ever coded in java? its a very useful language, its amazing for internet and web page related programming, and it has many features and pre-defined functions and classes which you can use, making a button is as easy as:
    button myButton = new button("this is a button");

    java is probably the best language for "write once use many".

    Personally I like C over C++. Dunno why, C++ just gives me an odd feeling when I'm coding in it. Oh well, I'll probably get proficient in C++ for the hell of it, but code in C more often in my leisure.

    I never understand why people make a big fuss over the difference between C and C++. C++ _is_ C with just a little plus... um... plus. Its the same damn syntax though.

    On occasion I use sprinklings of C when more "convenient" C++ methods are available. iostream is a prime example of some C++ things I avoid like the plague. Everything has its place.

    No You could write a C compiler in a lot of languages......Hell even basic if you were that warped!....its all about producing a file containing numbers at the end of the day....

    According to Lucent Technologies Bell Labs History:
    BASIC has no existence in the history of C development.

    The Development of the C Language

    Did they change the history? or we are trying....
    I guess didn't get enough time to explore.
