C or C++ as a second language?

P: n/a
Hi. Should I jump right into C++, or is it better to learn C first?
I'm not a total beginner; I know Javascript, but I obviously would like
to learn a more powerful language.

Thanks,

TP

Note to newbies (and the unobservant!):

Please note that the above is just flame bait. The followups in the
original message demonstrate this. No point replying to his nonsense.

Jump right into C++. Only learn C if you want to learn C.

Obviously. Why you set your follow-ups to photography newsgroups is
still a mystery though. Trolling?

It has nothing to do with filters. You changed the Subject header of
the message, and some newsreaders, like Outlook Express, do not put it
in the same thread. They make it seem that you started another thread.
Just FYI...

Hmm...nope. Original post not here. Maybe it hasn't arrived yet. Or
maybe Tony is a well known troll and has gotten himself deleted from
newsservers.

I didn't realize OE was that bad. So it is too stupid to follow
the references chain?

I don't think "stupid" is applicable to programs. Software cannot
be smart or stupid, it only does what it's designed and programmed
to do, and always _precisely_ that.

The problem is that between people accessing Usenet via "Google" and via
various MS products, very few people actually use newsreaders anymore.

Maybe if those of us that do use newsreaders all insisted on *only*
posting in ROT13, it would run all the others off after a while, as
they got tired of seeing all the "line noise", then we could be
back to Usenet of 10 years ago.


OE has ROT13 decoding, and also correctly handles threading of posts with
renamed subjects.

Ironically, Mozilla Thunderbird, my normal reader, doesn't.

Netscape 4.75 does. Very awkward to generate it though.

I don't understand why all this talk about OE. Plain truth is that the
OP never showed up on my newsserver. Obviously they have better filters
than yours and so you seem to think I must be using OE. Maybe if you
guys were as smart as you think you are you would look in the headers at
the User-Agent and see that I am not.

And for those that think they are so fucking cool and have us
stupidasses all outsmarted:

Gnyxvat penc nobhg crbcyr va pbqr vf sbe chffvrf naq ovgpurf.

If you guys don't like the rest of us then why are you here?

For those that don't know what they are doing:

tr [a-zA-Z] [n-za-mN-ZA-M]

'man tr' if you don't know what that does. I am sure there is a windows
equivelent command for Rot13 (en/de)coding but I don't know it.

To tell the truth though, none of it is worth decoding. Just a bunch of
elitist cowards in the middle of a big back biting circle jerk.

It has nothing to do with filters. You changed the Subject header of

My OE (v6.0, 'out of the box') retains the threading, even

Hi. Should I jump right into C++, or is it better to learn C first?


Jump right into C++. Only learn C if you want to learn C.
I'm not a total beginner; I know Javascript, but I obviously would like
to learn a more powerful language.


Obviously. Why you set your follow-ups to photography newsgroups is
still a mystery though. Trolling?


He wants to C through his camera lens. :-)

It has nothing to do with filters. You changed the Subject header of the message, and some newsreaders, like Outlook Express, do not put it in the same thread.


Then OE is not a newsreader. Film at eleven.


My OE (v6.0, 'out of the box') retains the threading, even
if the subject line is modified.


What is really stupid about this whole thing is that I don't use OE. I
use mozilla at home, where the OP never arrived, and google at
work...where it did.

The troller probably thought they would start a flame about C vs. C++.
What is funny is that they started a flame war about a completely off
topic subject without even being off topic.

If all these rot13 bozos want to 'fix' usenet I think this thread shows
that the best way to do that is for them to just leave.

Several other newsreaders also rely on the subject to thread properly,
Forte Agent amongst them. I suspect you can't claim that this isn't a
newsreader, no matter how rabidly anti-MS one might feel... :-)

Agent gives you the choice. In General Options, go to Display->Message
List Pane->Start New Thread if Subject Changes and uncheck it.

This is extremely unlikely to be true. I use Forte Free Agent, and it
threads perfectly using the References header. I would be flabbergasted
to hear that the commercial Forte Agent has been made a downgrade, by
taking this feature out.
(Hint: Opions -> Message List -> the various threading options.)

(I also note that the premise of that "Then", as claimed by Victor, is
not true, according to several others. The film that was planned for
eleven o'clock has been canceled.)

To tell the truth though, none of it is worth decoding. Just a bunch of elitist cowards in the middle of a big back biting circle jerk.

I didn't realize OE was that bad. So it is too stupid to follow
the references chain?


Since v5 of OE (at least), messages with *different* subjects that *are*
(according to the References header) parts of a single thread are displayed
as such. But messages with the *same* subjects that *aren't* parts of a
single thread are shown as if they were. This has both advantages and
disadvantages.

(I think "same" is a case-insensitive comparison, and probably ignores a
"Re:" prefix if present.)
