    Post C vs C++

    I've been debating with a few people lately whether or not C can still be properly used in the modern programming world. I say that still is still useful and still is powerful (despite it only being a procedurally oriented language), and others say that it is out dated, bulkier, weaker or any such other things compared to C++. So, what's your input?

"Finding the smallest program that demonstrates the error" is a powerful debugging tool.
