Why I like only C++?

This is strange. I dont like any project using other languages than C++ (or
maybe C). Why is this? Somekind of mental bond...

I remember doing a project with VB in a company. I did not like it at all.

Also I lack of interest when I am asked to use other languages.

Can one be "healed" of this kind of thing?

When you get to program more, and the language becomes your tool, not
your toy, you lose the special relationship (gradually), and start
developing affinity to solutions, not methods of [en]coding them.

If MS brought out C# before VB I would've been a big fan. C# would've been
nice for excel , but VB is a no go area for me.

The mental bond you have with C++ will probably dissapear when/if you learn
asm. Its the low level understanding of what's going on that you're probsbly
bonded with, nothing to do with the language syntax. But having said that I
prefer C++,C, Pascal, Java, javascipt, PHP, C# style syntax to VB
syntax(which is completely different to all the rest).

Pascal? Whoa! Pascal is not a curly-brace language! (And therefore sucks,
of course).

That's the most random and surrealistic comment I have seen in a while.

Why would his attitude towards C++ change in any way if he learns asm?

As I said its not the sysntax its the understanding of the underlying
mechanics. Java syntax is almost identical but with better array
declarations but you don't think of it the same.

Shut up arsehole, i have already proven that is utter shite and that you are
nothing more than a clueless idiot.

16-bit MS-DOS tiny memory model is one clear example of a non segmented
memory model.
Strange how we can use C++ functions in these programs, yet they have no
text segement.

Something is wrong , its either you or the complete computer programming
world.

narrow thinking? You'll be abetter programmer if you learn a couple
of extra languages. They allow you to think about different ways to
address problems. And it is simply easier to do things in some
languages than others. Perl excels at pattern matching and
substitution. It's a pain trying to do Perl things in C++. (Maybe the
Boost regexp stuff makes it better- the sytax looked a little awkward
to me).

probably wise not to like VB. There world of computer langues is
slightly larger than C++ and VB!

I've heard C# described as the language that VB should have been.

you've got to be kidding.

At least my C++ programs have a fair chance of running on different
platforms. asm means I'm tied to today's platform. Plus it'll be ten
times harder to write the program in the first place.

he relises how much pain and suffering C++ is sheltering him from
