Tell me something, why is C++ so great? What sets it above other languages? Is it safe to assume that everybody likes it just because it is popular? What ever happened to Perl, Delphi, or Assembly? Wouldn't programmers rather program in assembly? Assembly is so much faster, the executables are so much smaller, and you have so much more control. You actually have a much better idea of what is going into your executable, unlike C++. So tell me, why is C++ so great?
