Re: The future of C/C++

You forgot one important thing:
Java has no concept of pointers...

I was chatting to an "experienced" Java programmer once, and he had never
even heard of a pointer vefore, and couldn't even grasp the basic concept of
them until I demonstrated the use of them (passing a pointer to a struct and
changing the struct in a function_

C++ surely won't go away anytime soon, and Java is way overhyped.
It has 3 main "advantages":
(1) It comes standard with a bytecode interpreter
(2) It comes with a hugs standard library
(3) It has automatic garbage collection

Aside from that it's more or less a clone of C++ with the advanced
features removed:
* no operator overloading
* no teplates or seomthing similar. that means you can either have
generic code or typesafe code, but not both
