    I would suspect that western humor/sarcasm isn't globally accepted. Let's play nice shall we?

    What's wrong with that?

    You can program OO-Programs in C too

    It isn't that difficult.

    But C is (nearly) a subset of C++, so why prefer it over C++? The only reason I can think of is, that no C++ Compiler is available. C Compilers are much easier to write than C++ Compilers...

    But efficienty? Show me a C program that is faster than a C++ program doing the same. Of course, it is much more difficult to write a real good C++ program than a real good C program. But a good programmer is better off with C++

    The day Fordy post it, I checked the following defination:

    sar·casm (sär“k²z”…m) n. 1. A cutting, often ironic remark intended to wound. 2. A form of wit that is marked by the use of sarcastic language and is intended to make its victim the butt of contempt or ridicule. 3. The use of sarcasm.

    Is that explaining the meaning correctly?

    I appreciate that FillYourBrain (Chris Marino) noticed and remarked the fact.

    Wow!!! 7 ..... lots of vote to abandon C.
    14.89% vote is not poor in cboard.

    Ruski or Fordy, why don't one of you post a poll on 'Should The World Abandon BASIC?' next week.

    I'm not sure if BASIC lover will get heart. Here we are the people of C. We can comment on it but BASIC... , I think in these days we can keep/through it in archive. It will be used in future for research of history.

    OO in C

    You will still find an interesting book on oop in C. I download and printed the complete book.

    Should the world abandon C ?
    considering Wolfenstien 3D, Doom, Doom II, Quake, Quake II, and Quake 3 were all made using C and not C++? I dont think so.

    Dont believe me? Take a look at the source code. id Software has quite a bit of it for download on their website...even Quake III's.
