This complaint can also be addressed to Ada, Modula-3, Delphi, C#, Scala, Lisp, Haskell, ML...


Lisp? Seriously?

What matters is the seriousness of this complaint: it is not black or white.. C++ is a monster, D is a bit better but it still is *very* complex..

While Lisp in itself is very simple, it can be used to express very complex architectures, specially when heavy use of macros is done.

... C++ is a monster...


I prefer to think that it is a language for people that known how to program.

[/q]Yes, but that's not a language issue, so this is out of topic.

"Programmers using sane tool such as Ada or OCaml also know "how to program" but they're wise enough to avoid C++..
