C is a perfectly usable language I don't see why you have such a problem in using it :S

Cos there are newer, better languages to use. And most are OOP.

Technically I thought C was oop, just without the class support. I like C because of the speed .

C++ is no slower than C; at least not visibly. A couple of nanoseconds maybe but that is very small.

C is not a object oriented language. C++'s classes impliment OOP.

Some people get confused about C beeing OOP because of structures. But you must remember that before the arrival of C++, C structures could only hold data and it wasn't untill C++ came around that support for functions were added.

A couple of nanoseconds per... if its instruction that'd be a lot of time wasted, if its for a bunch of function executions then yeah its hardly noticable.

don't think of c++ being nanoseconds slower, think of it as being several times slower than C

the fact that this is all in nanoseconds is what makes it irrelevant


and yea, C++ is has a very dynamic style to it. I've been reading up on Objective C which looks much more like modern java than anything else but it's very very closely related to C (in fact the Obective C extentions were first part of cc (as opposed to g++))


also, i've been doing alot of work in writting a theorem prover in haskell, and it's pretty leet
