C++ is for robust things in the same way that Windows 95 is the ideal operating system for your heart & lung machine.


Edit: tried to clean up the sentence structure. My grammar parser is broken, must have been written in c++ ;)

No, thats not what "robust" means.

http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/robust

My point is that in the same way you would not want your heart and lung machine to run an operating system known for its crashes and instability. You would not want to write anything you needed to be robust written in c++.

The robust requirement is a large reason why enterprises switched from cobol to java and never considered c++.

Since when? "Robust" means something that does not break easily. Not one of C's or C++'s strength. When talking about robust, languages like Erlang come into mind...
