Just read it. A very interesting and insightful discussion.
C IS indeed more widely supported, but wouldn't you think that
since you are working on the NEW technologies, you should USE
new technologies as well?
On the other hand, moving away from the issue at hand, could it
be possible, maybe, to have two sets of source code -- one C, one C++?
I know it is too much to ask for and the support will virtually
double, but I do think that a lot of structures and operations
on them used on W3C Lib can be vastly improved if a true OO approach
>And for my 2 cents: Object-Oriented is an approach, not a language. :)
I agree, but wouldn't using a language that directly supports
OO features be easier? :-]
P.S. People, PLEASE, don't take my rant personally!
Why is that when the conversation is about C and C++ differences
many people consider it like a religious persecution?!
I am trying to offend every honest and hard working C programmer
just because s/he is not using the latest OO techniques.
I am simply attempting to suggest a better way (IMO -- I know that
many people don't share it!) to approach the problem at hand.
