I haven't really used it for very much; just had a fiddle with it when I was looking for another language to learn. Actually I haven't used it since I last had Fedora installed.
New years resolution: Learn a new language, preferable Simula, Smalltalk, Eiffel or Ada (properly, I started to a couple of times but...).
Good class architecture is not like a Swiss Army Knife; it should be more like a well balanced throwing knife.

Odd isn't it. I worked with Fortran for many years, and when I was introduced to C, thought how odd it was that the compiler needed to be told where the line ended, and could not work it out for itself. Made the language appear "weak".

I like ";", makes the code look more complicated to beginners. hahaha
especialy at the end of class or struct.
