No, I'm not sure - that's why I'm asking here. Thinking back, I actually
never profiled my code. I don't have any real experience with the speed
differences between C and C++.

*grin* you expressed my feelings quite well.

I think the general opinion here is towards using C++ (without templates,
and carefully avoiding to call costly code). If there are no objections, I
think we can settle on that.


Daddy what does "FORMATING DRIVE C" mean?
