    As well as with the number five itself:

    Code:
    #define REAL_FIVE 5;

    Sure, except... *deep breath*

    5 is an illegal identifier and therefor cannot be used as a macro name, it wouldn't matter anyway as the identifier would be taken as a literal next to other characters (ex. <io5tream>), which wouldn't matter anyway since that would just replace with the literal definition giving you <io(char)0x63tream>.

    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.

    The first 90% of a project takes 90% of the time,
    the last 10% takes the other 90% of the time.

    Here's a challenge before you start delving into the world of programming. Write 5 grammatically correct sentences that don't contain the letter 's'.

    There is no "best" language. The thing to do is choose the language that best fits the particular task you are doing. For example, you would choose Java Script over C++ if you were creating a web application or even XTML.

    C++ is great for large apps like game development, and store systems ( databases ect )
