big same. I really like C#, but I adopted it before generics, and back in the bad old days of 1.x i really didn't like using it compared to C++
I love my templates. Then generics came along, and while they're no C++ template, they made me miss C++ a little less.
I still code in C++ pretty regularly, but only if I must. It's just more expensive in terms of time and effort. Such an elegant language though. I absolutely love it.
C# these days is pretty, but not elegant compared to C++, though it is compared to Java IMO, but it seems like it's becoming a little like Perl, what with all the recent extensions making the language look downright confusing.
Still, it's my go to language for most of my projects these days. And it's cool that it runs on android.
When I was growin' up, I was the smartest kid I knew. Maybe that was just because I didn't know that many kids. All I know is now I feel the opposite.
Very interesting and great explanation. sounds like you have a process wrapped around the PERL and that's always good.
I've mostly seen PERL used for scripting. We had huge Netscape Enterprise Server logs back in the day and it was used for parsing through them. It was the fastest thing at the time for doing that.
But, the syntax is very off-putting to my sensibilities. But that's probably because I haven't worked with it enough. I've never seen it used for very large projects or even an entire app, just CGI and scripting.
