Not so much of a technical question...
Let me start out by saying this: I love C
Now, with that out of the way.. I want to create a simple game, and that really cries OOP so C++ would be a much wiser choice. The problem is that I hate <iostream>, <string>, etc. I like char *buffer much better. Now the big question is... is it ok to take the parts of C that I like (read(), write(), etc...) and use them in C++? I know it will work and produce the desired results but is it good coding practice? Or maybe I should just suck it up and learn the C++ way of doing things?
