Google "Native Client enables Chrome to run high-performance apps compiled from your C and C++ code. One of the main goals of Native Client is to be architecture-independent, so that all machines can run NaCl content. Today we're taking another step toward that goal: our Native Client SDK now supports ARM devices, from version 25 and onwards."

No no no, I don't hate Go, I mean, it has some good features like concurrency and fast compilation.

I said I don't like the syntax, but, looks more like Go is your pet project or you work at Google, because telling me to STFU in such aggressive way reflects that.

Oh yeah, and for your information, I've tried Go already, and that's why I concluded that the Syntax sucks monkey balls IMHO.

I don't work for Google and was only aggressive because you gave the impression you hadn't used it. If you had then I genuinely apologise.

Personally I love the C syntax and use to love Pascal before I got into C derived languages. Go, for me, is an elegant marriage of the two. However we're talking about personal preferences so I can sympathise with those who don't prefer it.

You still didn't answer my earlier question though. You gave an example of a function with complicated types (akin to C++) and said other languages solved that problem. Which languages and how?

You said that every language has unreadable code, I said, some are ironed (not solved) for that like Python and some fail like Ruby.

I said that it is easy in Go as C++ to make unreadable code, and that's why I said is a C like language.

And that example I gave is the less complicated one, I can put another one with pointers, arrays and callbacks if you want.

Go IMHO it is designed to be less verbose but is cryptic at the same time.

Well python has an advantage in that it doesn't compile to machine code. So it's not really a fair comparison. I think you'd be hard pressed to find a language as powerful as the C or even Go that didn't get messy with complexity. Except maybe if you switched programming paradigms entirely. Lisp is next on my todo list.
