    Countdown until someone who can't take a joke posts and points out everything that's wrong with that list.

    5... 4... 3... 2...

    >>Pascal has well-defined rules for Scope, while C appears to be using Listerine. This accounts for the medicine breath of many C programmers.

    I happen to be fond of that breath :P

    I can't see how 10 is a Pascal advantage. Because it's dumbed down?????

    Sorry cheez, I just HAD to point that one out.

    C is the ultimate language for computational promiscuity.

    Don't worry, Govtcheez, that list speaks for itself.
    Do not make direct eye contact with me.

    7. C is used by liberal, Democratic, Mike Dukakis (maybe update to Howard Dean) types of programmers. Pascal is a favorite of the GOP. Hey, we know what the big language at Berkeley is, don't we?
    I can't fathom to think how this is a bad thing for C and a good thing for Pascal. Real radical hippi programmers use Brain.......... anyway.
    I am a programmer. My first duty is to God, then to nation, then to employer, then to family, then to friends, then to computer, and finally to myself. I code with dignity, honor, and integrity.
