C plus plus vs C Sharp

Discussion in '35mm Cameras' started by The LoxFather, Aug 9, 2003.

  1. Coming from a VB background, which should .NET language should I
    learn....C++ or C Sharp. Is C++ going to be dead soon?

    This is an obvious troll. Please ignore it.

    "Humans and higher primates share approximately 97%
    of their DNA in common.
    Recent research in primate programming suggests computing
    is a task that most higher primates can easily perform.
    Visual Basic 6.0, was the preferred IDE for the majority
    of experiment primate subjects.
    Test subjects with the best results were baboons and bonobo apes.
    Both primate species demonstrated stressful behaviors
    when presented with Java tools and utilities.

    Total nonsense, unless by few days you meant few years. C is CPU
    independent, and VB has as much in common with C as a cheeseburger and
    coke has to a hot roast dinner with potatoes and red wine.

    That's because VC++ is about C++, not C#. Flip a few pages and have a
    look in the 'C# Section'. That's like saying "I can't find anything
    about kangaroos in a book about worms"
    C# is *not* an interpreted language... it's a compiled language! What
    did you think the term "JIT compilation" stood for? Really, where from
    do you get your facts? Sesame Street?

    C# gives you very good performance - you should know how to use the
    language to do the things you want done. Secondly, the next version has
    some very neat features, like Generics - that should give a boost to
    overall performance. I've heard the next version of CLR has been tuned
    for performance. Let's wait and see.

    That's what I heard *someday* Microsoft promises, C# will have performance.
    And in carefully constructed circumstances, sometime in the future,
    Microsoft says might even make it be faster than C++ in the same carefully
    constructed situation. In the mean time though, it's a Java.

    In the mean time though, it's a Java.

    I completely disagree. For that, you'll have to dig into some
    documentation and do some reading.. there are many articles and papers
    out there that compare Java and C# in terms of many features and qualities.

  14. Would you please stop posting this question.
    You have reworded it, but alas, it is the same and has been dealt
    with before.

    Search the C++, C and VB newsgroups for messages that are
    destined for "rec.woodworking".

    If you are going to post again, to the same groups,
    please tell us how you are relating the topic to all of the
    newsgroups you posted to. I don't see the relationship between
    programming and woodworking from your post's content.

    {Programming a robotic woodworking machine would be an interesting
    concept though.}

  17. C# is a new improved version of C++. It is somewhere between C++ and
    Java. Learning the .net platform is an entirely different matter.

  18. Obviously, no one has any reason to take seriously anything Johan Lexington
    has to say. The above was posted by either a troll or an idiot.
