Higer level code is always specialized and often full of unfixable bugs.

P: n/a

Hi Olaf_Baeyens ( and Linonut ),

Microsoft C++ is really it's latest version of MS_C,
as Microsoft is not supporting the latest C standard, C99.

cout and the STL are pure garbage and should not be used, I say.
All the same, I use C++ ( MS_C_7 )
as it allows be to declare variables in_between statements.

I also use C++'s & a lot as references look cleaner than pointers.

C has been around for a long time,
and will continue to be around long after C# and Java are forgotten.

The higer a language is,
e.g. VBA scripts in MS_Word, the shorter it's lifespan.

The problem with high_level languages like C# and Java
is that they never quite reach the status of being a genuine standard,
as few can agree on what the higher level stuff should look like.

Higer level code is always specialized and often full of unfixable bugs.

P.S. Experienced C coders don't require weeks just to create a button.

First you're all like low-level and stuff, and then you subscribe to a
garbage language like c++

c is the answer and it always will be.

c/unix/linux is the lingua franca of the whole world.

Hi Chinese_Pope, Ya writ: << C is the answer and it always will be. >>

And the most recent version of that, according to Microsoft, is C++,
because they're not going the C99 route.

C++ is just as low as C, because cout and the STL are optional.

I was making it sounding a little bit more dramatic. :-)
I was not referring to the button itself, but about the code behind that
button that should interoperate with the user interface.
E.g. active feed-back like a status bar, progress bar,....

It takes years to really perfect code,
because testing dwarfs the time it took to bang out the code.

During those years, short-sighted compromises,
like using C#, Java, COM or HTML, can come back to bite you,
....beacuse the C++ guy could sneek up behind you and offer a better product.

tend to use fake names in the posts?

Hi Olaf_Baeyens ( and Peter_Kohlmann, Bailo ),

You asked: << Odd, why would somone name a screen saver with my name in it
and send as an attachment it to this newsgroup ? >>

Pete started his post with: << begin virus.scr Olaf Baeyens wrote: >>
I he does that because of his brain tumor, I believe.

Also, Pete, as a demo of Linux's Knode in action,
redirected your post to parts unknown... again, I blame it on his tumor.

You asked: << How odd that a lot of people claming that C is the top

Jeff_Relf is my given name, I was born in Seattle at the start of 1960.
Bailo, a.k.a. Chinese_Pope, is a rapid nymshifter in Comp.OS.Linux.Advocacy .

C# might well be the best language for certain things,
just not the things that do.

And who is JBailo???

But the real message would have looked like this I assume:

A retard. Posts under dozens of different names, to escape killfiles
He is no linux user, although he often pretends to be one. That only fools

Ridiculuous statement.

I do it for two reasons:

1. It really cuts down on the spam I get, in a major way.

2. I tend to curse a lot when I write, or get obnoxious, and
it is unpleasant to google for your own name and see some
of your more insane postings. <oy vey!>

A lot of hypothetical results and not much logic there, Jeff.

With C# the button is already designed and you just drag it into the
product from a list and place it on a form that uses it. The code
behind it is mostly there automatically. You can give it a name that
you like, else the IDE will give it a unique name anyway. It likes to
start with Button1.

Hi Linonut, Re: Why you don't use your real name,

I use my real name, and, although I have written some embarrassing stuff,
I can't think of who'd care about that or why.

Also, I barely remember what spam is, I get so little of it.

On_the_fly e-mail aliases via Cotse.NET kills spam dead.
Aliases allow me to precisely identify all senders,
....I kill the sender's alias if he bothers me.

My hyper_custom e-mail client, X.EXE, automatically assigns aliases.

Firefox, of course, blocks all pop-ups and makes Flash Click_to_play.

That's an Outlook flaw. I recomend that you use 40tude_Dialog instead.

You asked me: << And who is JBailo ??? >>

I have No idea, but I think he's the Don Quixote of Linuxdom.
His/Her real name is Joan_Fickle_Bailo .
I love his posts because he's the only one 'round here that talks about:
Food, music, sex, jokes, computers, physics, Seattle, securities, etc.

Everyone else is too worried about being Off_Topic .

Outlook flaw or not, his mesages are the only ones that I cannot read.
And I am not going to decode every message he sends.

But I am wondering why the "virus.scr" part is included in the text?
A "virus"= something bad.
A ".scr" = screen saver on Windows machines.

And a "virus.scr" seems to look like a screen saver containing a virus from
the point of simple user view.
Especially when found in the attachment and when clicked has a attachment
filename: "virus.scr Olaf Baeyens wrote"

Unless it is his intention to scare people or shock people, it is not a very
wise choice to keep it like that even when it is a bug in Outlook express.

Hi billwg, Re: How a C++ coder could easily beat a C# coder,
You told me: << A lot of hypothetical results and not much logic there, Jeff.

C#'s dialog editor stinks.
Your Button1, for example, is just a window of the BUTTON class,
and it doesn't scale well to different screens.

Fonts are often too small or too large,
and text often doesn't fit inside the Button1, for example.

My X.CPP employs only one window, created by a call to CreateWindowExA().
The window is always maximized, with only Win_XP's Start bar showing,
it has no pop-ups as a rule.

Black is always the background color, even when highlighting,

The font is always 80 columns, monospaced,
with nothing automatically wrapped, as a rule
....wrapping is done only by hand.

Of course X has no editor at the moment, it uses Visual_Studio,
so who am I to talk ?

But just the Idea of writting my own editor,
using only one window, appeals to me.

He redirects people's relies to him to parts unknown for the same reason.
