Thread: C/C++

  1. #11

    Re: C/C++

    the issue is not really about which programming language is "easier to use" or which programming language is "more portable" or etc...

    as for me, it all boils down to one question: "what type of program/system am i making?" each programming language has its own strong/weak points. it's basically up to the developer to determine the suitable programming language to use.

    yup it's a good point but if we compare C to C++ I prefer C++ coz you can go as far as oop which C i guess couldn't. Correct me if I'm wrong. I'm not a hardcore programmer. wahahahah.

    you can actually code/implement your app in C in an OO way..

    c++ is better than C..as they c is an old one...and take note c++ is easier than java...

    That really depends on who you ask though.

    Re: C/C++

    what book should I read first in order to easily understand php? I have a minimal background in C way back my college days..also I haven't tried linux yet ever..

    @Oakboy: WROX would do fine but they're pretty expensive here (Cebu) and they're on order basis. there are other alternatives and they're on paperbacks :-) try looking for one in your local bookstore... if you happen to live in Cebu, try Cagnaan Bookstore (at the back of St. Theresa's College). they sell books cheaper than National Book Store hehe

    Each language has it's strength's and weaknesses. C is a procedural programming language while C++ is an object oriented programming langauge. C++ is an extension to C, which means everything you can do in C you can do in C++ exactly the same way. In other words you can still do procedural programming in C++.

    When introducing object oriented programming to a language you're creating overhead with the handling of objects, and their methods. So C code should generally always run faster then C++ code assuming the C++ code is written with object orientation in mind. This is probably the reason many operating systems are written using C. An operating system must be fast.

    As for Java it is a great programming language that makes a lot of things immensely easy for the programmer. For example, if you can think of something you want to do someone has probably already done this, and it's sitting in the library waiting for you to use. I absolutely love this about Java.

    I do suggest you learn the mainstream languages however. If you decide I'll learn Pascal today, then you're asking for failure, as you probably won't find anyone looking for your skills.

    hello,
    like hombre said embedded should use C. And as far as i am concerned so should all OS's. And apps. for that matter. I took a C++ class and found it to be the ugliest most cumbersome language ever. If you are very skilled at writing in C++ you can get it to the point where it uses perhaps 1.25 times the amount of memory a C program uses.

    Actually I think C++ is a pretty language compared to most, although I'm partial to it since it's what I learned first. I do however like Java a lot, but again it's designed to look like C++.
