General Development "I am pleased to report that the GCC Steering Committee and the FSF have approved the use of C++ in GCC itself. Of course, there's no reason for us to use C++ features just because we can. The goal is a better compiler for users, not a C++ code base for its own sake. Before we start to actually use C++, we need to determine a set of coding standards that will apply to use of C++ within GCC."

And ... it looks like script kiddies voted this down. There should be a way to report vote trolls.

Yeah, exactly. Everybody who voted himt down -- including me -- is a script kiddie and maybe even a "voting troll". In my case a "vote up [excluding him] voting troll". You got me. ;)

PS.: I voted for "troll", without the voting.
Edit: Oh damn, just looked at your voting records. How would you describe yourself?

For me *personally* the FSF is inane. I don't need to read about *how* inane it is, or how it has decided it's okay to use more modern programming paradigms. It's all very 1990 for me.
