Intervju med C++ fader, Bjarne Stroustrup

Sitter på tåget ner mot Linköping (och senare Tranås) för att imorgon ta mig ner till Göteborg (West Coast Riot + Metaltown!). Sitter och ska skumma igenom dagens nördnyheter på slashdot och hittar en riktigt intressant intervju med C++ fader. Det är oerhört underhållande läsning för den som är intresserad.

Bjarne Stroustrup of C++ fame dissects the history of his famed programming language

Everybody agreed that semantically ++C would have been even better, but I thought that would create too many problems for non-geeks.

Fighting the type system (with lots of casts and macros) is futile.

C++ makes it harder to shoot yourself in the foot; but when you do, it takes off the whole leg.

Maybe there is a collation between language success and appreciation of Monty Python?
