Note to students and others who come across this page, if C++ works for you, feel free to use it. It has its place. I just personally do not like C++. I find it hard to follow and worse to maintain. You probably don't want to know my opinions on Java or perl either.
For various reasons too numerous to discuss here, I hate C++ and everything it stands for.

Here's a postscript image you can print out and display if you feel similarly (it's the international no symbol indicating c++ is not appreciated):
"C++ is a horrible language. It's made more horrible by the fact that a lot of substandard programmers use it, to the point where it's much much easier to generate total and utter crap with it. Quite frankly, even if the choice of C were to do *nothing* but keep the C++ programmers out, that in itself would be a huge reason to use C."
