    "If you only needed to learn the concepts, then the choice of language is completely irrelevant, since you'll never be needing to make a program after you learn how." While they're futzing around with pointers and core dumps and destructors and copy ctors etc, they could be learning variables, functions, looping, etc.

    That's what they learn first anyway.

    That made me laugh.
    The code made me cry when I saw it first time...
    All problems in computer science can be solved by another level of indirection,
    except for the problem of too many layers of indirection.
