    moving over from C

    Ive been with C for about a year and a half...done most of the stuff..i am quite comfortable with C now.Can someone give me an idea as to how much of C i should be knowing before considering myself to be a decent C programmer? I mean, i dont plan to stop doing C, but i want to start with something like C++ or Java..i already have a background in C++ so i am thinking of moving over to Java..Any other programming languages that i can try before going over to Java?

    programming... has nothing to do with the language... what you learn about programming crosses languages... so if you think you're ready to learn something new, learn something new.

    C#, fortran, cobol, assembly, B, D, ... there are quite a few of them.

    yeah, but whatever you do, don't learn COBOL (it's evil)

    neither do i plan to learn COBOL, nor do i plan to learn B,D and fortran...Assembly seems to be quite interesting.

    And it's very useful for integrating into C/C++ and other languages, where needed.
    Good class architecture is not like a Swiss Army Knife; it should be more like a well balanced throwing knife.

    Its not really all that bad -- just a lot of coding. The language can't be bet for generating reports.

    I think banks still use it a lot, don't know what other institutions do.
