    Technically goto is considered a keyword. However, it is not supported.
    The limited form of gotos is usually used with loops. They are called labeled for or labeled while loops

    Java is a multi platform language which makes it slower. And if I'm correct... it doesn't have pointers (correct me if i'm wrong). So...whats the use of Java? other than writing applets and other web stuff.



    Multiple inheritence is quite usefull whem used correctly and in the right places
    Hello! I wrote this thread as:

    I know JVM is written in C and C++.

    But it is still slow."What the C/C++ programmers are doing to improve it?" was my question.

    From C++ programmers point of view I wanted the answer and that is why I have posted it here........
    We all are the components of a huge program...... the programmer is always debugging us with His debugger.

    Sorry...Had a bit of a bad day and took it out on the board. My sincerest apologies.

    Each version of the java virtual machine is a bit faster. The coders is working on it. But remember that it will NEVER be as fast a C/C++ because it's multiplatform

    Ok! Ok!
    Do you know about C# it's also platform independent but it's faster than Java!

    .NET framework can go from IL (intermediate language) to machine code - like JIT compilation for Java.

    Comparing speed is very subjective with too many variables to consider.
