    C/C++: Usually faster, standard code is machine-independent but most non-trivial apps will need to be ported.
    Java: Slooooowww, but the `compiled' code can be ported, rather than just the source. Runs anywhere with java run-time installed.
    Those are the main differences. There are more "subtle" differences, but people with more experience can enlighten you with them.

    IDE: emacs + make + gcc and proud of it.

    There is no "better" language. There are uses for almost every language (it would be rather foolish to say EVERY language; ever heard of MOO?), and this applies to C, C++, and Java: they all have their uses, and they all have their disadvantages.
    Do not make direct eye contact with me.

    Safety is important at all levels of software design but especially when learning to program. Although there is some confusion about what a safe programming language is, we are using safety to mean: Any attempt to misinterpret data is caught at compile time or generates a well-specified error at run time. Java is a safe programming language.

    Notice the italicized text.....well, i'm glad the mars rover operated safely *cough* *cough*
    and I honestly don't understand how they can say that C++ doesn't emphasize object-oriented programming, that's what C++ IS. C++ is just c with classes and object-orientation!! arrggg, stupid AP people

    Incidentally, does anyone around here code in INTERCAL?
    C + C++ Compiler: MinGW port of GCC
    Version Control System: Bazaar
