    How do you use C?

    This question came in my mind when I was replying in "How much time ... Do you Serve this Board." thread.

    How many of us really program in C for job/work/to make money?

    Use C in school, but C++ for home/work projects.

    I use many programming languages for work, C is just a small part of it.

    C is one of the languages which I use in my work and it is one of the languages which I use in home projects. Therefore I choose "Other".

    But without C, what would the world be like today? Windows would be written in QBASIC. Programs would be slow, bulky and poorly written, littered with GOTO and other silly mistakes. Systems would crash regularly, and need ever increasing specifications to run newer programs which could have been written much more efficiently and ran on a much lower end system.

    No change there then.

    But you could select one of the first two, at least the one dominates you.

    i do:
    HTML
    Javascript
    CSS
    C++
    Java
    Perl
    PHP
    ActionScript
    .

    i learn languages like these in order to make a buisness in the future.

    but it is by far the funnest to program in C++. the feel of a working APP is so cool!

    i also learned C++ for the use of making computer games.
