    C++ also has references , and you can forget about pointers for most cases.

    1.None of the other participants are fast and steady.
    2.The fast and unsteady suddenly falls asleep while running !

Obviously though Java pays for this 'advantage' with less performance.

    If you mean you need to use pointers to keep track of things such as linked lists, then a pointer in C++ is exactly the same as reference in Java except Java only uses the "." syntax, and it doesn't allow you to distinguish between the pointee and pointer.
    If you mean you need to allocate a lot of things on the heap and manually delete them, think again. That's what smart pointers are for.

    But C++ dose not, I can spell the words I need: and, for, while, do, #include iostream, ect
    Where on this is my bad spelling going to affect it? Grammar really dose not matter unless your using cout, and even then I can type and spell good, I'll just need to type it up in world and proof read it many times, and yeah there will be mistakes, but its not like it's going to be harder for me to learn then someone who is an English majoir.

    Well, I'd say knowing how to read english properly is more important than writing since you are going to be reading a lot of documentation (which is usually going to be in english).

    I didn't, and I didn't say you can't read very good. I was just making a statement.
    If you can read english fine, then don't worry. Continue learning C++.
