Always a pleasure to hear you rant about C++ Bjørn :-)
(wrote a whole diatribe, then deleted it, done this too many times before ;-) )But spending months in a language without proper RAII, really makes me miss C++. GC is just a bug.
Øystein: I would have loved to read it. :-)There are uses for C++. In particular in systems that have stringent timing requirements or very tight resource constraints. But very, very few programmers work on those types of systems.Most software would benefit more from correctness and from proper design that from being able to do the bookkeeping yourself.
