General Development For years the development scene has been dominated by the C family of languages, primarily C itself and its immediate successor C++. Recent years have given rise to other C-descendents, however, such as Sun's Java and Microsoft's C#.

RE: RE: Null Pointers

I did reread it, several times. I've probably read it ten times already but I dimply don't understand what you're trying to get across. To me it seems like you're discussing how to optimize zero length arrays, but that is completely irrelevant. I couldn't care less about the low-level implementation of arrays. What I do want is that empty strings be different from null. Am I not making myself clear enough?
| a=""; b=null;
| if (a==b) {
| // this MUST NOT happen
| }
Do you agree?
