C++

I've been writing a bunch of C++ lately, both inside and outside of work. Really, once you learn what the gcc error messages actually mean, then it's smooth sailing. My mean time between bugging evan continues to drop ... a little.

I regularly bounce now between C++, Java, JavaScript, Python, Perl, and Sawzall. I wish I could say something more profound than that they all suck in their own special ways. (I suppose the cheery angle is that they're all beautiful snowflakes too, but...)

Actually JavaScript is almost the least annoying, from a language perspective. JavaScript with the whole DOM and browser crap is a whole different story ... but embedded JavaScript is great.

I wrote something in plain C the other day and besides being kinda nostalgically quaint, it kinda blew. I eagerly await rewriting it in C++.

Back to C++ fun....
