Mara, to write normal program in both languages takes lot of times.
I can manage to write notepad in both , but not more
Yes I can find a source to C++ prog, but not Basic....
My expirience showed that Basic programmers are greedy, and their products are always for money!!!

So people once again read the post above Mara's....

You don't need a big program. Small one will do, too. You'll see the difference easily.

Well it's not the original language (Fortran and LISP precede it for a start). IMHO the only thing good about C and C++ for application development is the number of libraries available for them. This is very significant, of course, but as a language, C seems overly minimalist for non system level stuff, and C++ is a big bloated mess.

So what I mean is C++ is good for getting stuff done because it's so widely used, but it's a horrible language.

C++ uses libraries much more extensively than C, especially if you are using the STL. I have never found C++ to be bloated, and it's by far the most popular language for building middleware.

I'd like to see the Linux community build it's own middleware framework that would allow Linux programmers to build applications that run on different architectures, plus (and this is a big plus) the framework would support solutions rather than system applications development, which means that it would have a large library support like Java or .net. I could really use that and so could the whole world.

I really hate what Microsoft is doing as of late with Palladium. I think that they are going to try to own the internet. All I know is that I will never bow down to a monopoly. We have to fight back.

I can see Java is having 5 votes ( as much as asm and C)
I can't say it is a very fast language

Guys I have one question: C/C++ is AWFULLY DIFFICULT LANGUAGE!!!
How people manage to learn it ???
For instance Mplayer has about 50000 lines!!!

C is only language I know so it's fastest.

nautilus_1987: C is very logical, and after you know some basics very wellit is easy to increase your knowledge.
Sadly I didn't have enough lust to learn more than how to write simple text adventure with few pictures looking like they are drawn with LSD or something. really, really awful pictures.

nautilus, in reply to your post 36, I'll quote the first post of this thread:

Huom! In this poll, I don't mean fastest application speed, but how fast it's to write the code.
I voted for java because you can write complex apps very fast, not because it runs fast.

How fast would Java be if there were no systems to support it? How fast would it be without the internet or a web server?

Well, kernel code is much bigger. And C is on every programming course, so I guess quite many people know it. It's quite simple, in fact, but also very flexible.

I know that I will study in University in programming fakulty ( I hope )
But I am afraid I will need to learn Turbo Pascal....it really sucks. Anyway I willl learn C/C++
Mara: I can't say C/C++ very simple
Crabboy: I will check out your quizes necessarily, when my programming knowledge will be a little bigger

So guys I have a general question: Is ANSI C/C++ the best programming languages?

I suppose Pascal is usually used only when showing programming basis (one semester, not more). Then you'll have C/C++, maybe some assembler, java etc.
C is the best language for me.
