C++: Some Frequently Questioned Answers

Through a series of random mumblings too hard to explain here, I landed on this amazing thread on comp.lang.c++.moderated. Basically, the thread is a significant rant about why C++ is horrible and it posts a link to a site that actually rips apart the C++ FAQs. That site has taken up amazing amounts of the author's time and energy and definitely deserves a link here. My suggestion is that you take the time and go through the site here but if you just want to cut to the chase, here's a list of some articles that I went through:


  1. Defective C++
  2. Big Picture Issues
  3. Classes and Objects
  4. Input-Output
There's tons of other useful information on that site that you must experience for yourself. However, before leaving you, here's a bunch of other random stuff that I've been reading:

  1. The fully legal Programming in Scala first edition ebook
  2. The lawsuit between Oracle and Google: Can you Copyright Computer Languages?
  3. A brief history of Microsoft's dirty legal tricks regarding Windows, MS Office and others.

That's it for now. Catch you later. Good night!
