  1. Re: What is the difference between a Programming Language and a Scripting Language?

    The difference is *very* hazy. Use a range of high-level languages, and work out your own definition.

    Re: Is python a high level programming Language?

    Not at all! When using Haskell, I never get variables being wiped out without adequate warnings due to imperative side-effects (I *hate* reference-passing), or nasty side-effects ruining the program...
  3. Re: [Newbie C++] Practising inheritance - can't get wanted outcome

    True, but the bool values will either have a garbage bit in them, or the compiler will set them to false (depending on the compiler)... so the cout command should still execute.

    Re: Is python a high level programming Language?

    Which is why I like higher-level languages like Python and Ruby :p

    I feel that using the highest-level language feasible is a good rule to stick by. I only use lower-level languages if I *have* to...

    Wahoo! Yet *another* Ubuntu remix!

    People aren't going to switch distros for a few GUI customizations, graphics, a unofficial custom installer, and a few preinstalled applications.

    Re: I'm new To programing

    First, pick your technique. Will you learn bottom-up, or top-down?

    The former will mean that you learn ASM as your first language. Then you learn C, then higher, etc.

    The latter will mean you...

    Re: Is python a high level programming Language?

    As far as Linux people in this forum are concerned, it's a high-level language. As far as most employers are concerned, it's a skiddy scripting language that is frail and doesn't work on 'real' OSes,...

    Re: C main() function

    In the most popular variant of C, C89, 'int main()' is completely allowed, and is the most used. This also applies to K&R C and C++. In fact, in C89 and K&R C, you can even leave out the 'int' part,...

    The anonymous thing is true, but as you said, many just need to 'be there' rather than 'named and known'. I can think of a easy solution in Ruby that won't screw up the code size - just make a button...

    Does anyone do their GUIs like this?

    When I do GUIs, I have a way of doing them, but people keep telling me it's cryptic. Yet I think it's easier, since it makes the left-hand side of the code look like a 'tree' of containers.

  13. Re: Intel's compiler cripples code on AMD and VIA chips

    Doesn't surprise me. But then again, how many *actually use* Intel's own compiler? I thought the world was mostly using MS's compilers for Windows, or GCC for *nix.

    Seeing as MS pushes the forefront of new .NET developments, you can be quite sure that MS .NET will be probably faster than Mono. But as I said before, I couldn't really tell the difference.

    In that case, the VS .NET documentation is your best bet :) I found it to be excellent.

    Then again, you get better component-based programming, and a far more compact initial framework, and a more feature filled language(C# with lambdas, properties, unsafe code, etc).

    Wide characters in C++
