    sometimes a more usefull C
    Classes are nice
    main reason:
    MSVC++ has a nice setup and makes it "oh so much easier" to program.
    Asking the right question is sometimes more important than knowing the answer.

    actually, anything you can do on the web, was mostlikely written in C
    I don't know bout C++ but I am pretty sure that it can also do the same thing.

    Apache was written in C
    There are a bunch of network programs out there
    in fact Windows (not completely confirmed) was written in C++

    I, however, believe that C is better. Even though C++ has classes and neat new functions, I still think C is better, probably because I am linux user. But don't get me misunderstood, I use C++ quite often but I use C more.

    Programming
    note: it is a known fact that the chosen programming language for hackers is C. However, C, in that sense, is quite difficult to use, and takes an elite programmer to master its skills.

    Reason C is used:
    Buffer Overflows, Open Source GLORY, All present day OS's were most likely written in C or C++. Linux is the hacker choice and is the C God system. C is a requirement for certain math Degrees. Most functionality. Developed by Bell Labs.

    real reason: because BASIC was becoming too popular. Fortran was becoming too complicated and just "out-of-date".
    Now for the reason it was developed:
    People got bored.

    Smile I use...

    I'd guess that most languages were written in Assembly which is a great language to learn in itself. I use assembly for windows programming, but for Game Boy Advance I use C.
