Question: How not to hate the most ridiculous language (C++) ? :) if you started to make REAPER today, would you choose c++ or something different?

    There's a non-ridiculous subset of C++, IMO.

    @Pony C++ is commonly-used language for native programs, cause it's a low-level language.

    Vitali, it's one of the most old languages, i don't know, but guess, there simply was no good alternative at that time, that's why it grew up and became widely used. It has all the bad things, programming can only have in comparison to other languages, but allows more possibilities.

    It's not *that* old, but at any rate we can judge languages by things other than their ages.

    @Pony What's for example a good programming language in your opnion?

    wasereb4, I was talking about convenience, speed of writing, compactness, unclutteredness of syntax, c++ in this sense loses to any language(Lua, Python, C#, JS, etc.), dealing with strings in c++ is a nightmare. i think it's possible to write even Low-Level language with simple syntax, right? i wrote a function few days ago(~20 lines of code) and out of curiosity did the same in Lua = 1 line! :)
