General Development "For years I've tried my damnedest to get away from C. Too simple, too many details to manage, too old and crufty, too low level. I've had intense and torrid love affairs with Java, C++, and Erlang. I've built things I'm proud of with all of them, and yet each has broken my heart. They've made promises they couldn't keep, created cultures that focus on the wrong things, and made devastating tradeoffs that eventually make you suffer painfully. And I keep crawling back to C."

I am more than happy to never touched C again since 2001.

Even clang and gcc are now done in C++.

Maybe you did not put a .c extension to your code; but C++ is an extension of C; so, you need to know C concepts (pointers, arrays, etc, pointers to functions, struts, mallocs, etc.)

When I code in C++ I take advantage of what C++ offers.

Even the C like code takes advantage of C++ improvements over plain old C.
