My feelings about C!

General discussion about Visopsys. We'll create more specific forums if the number of posts justifies that.

Heh. Different tools are better for different classes of problems :-)

Perl is horrible to me, but it's the best tool for doing certain things.

C is great when you need to be close to the hardware. If you know how to do assembler, it's possible (with experience) to know what assembler the compiler will create when you code in C.

At work I code in C wherever possible, but I'm able to mix it seamlessly with assembler when I need to.

I have the same problem with C. I am trying to learn C for Visopsys but I don't understand much because more manuals/tutorials are needed. When I learned something useful about Visopsys programming I'll write some tutorials so others don't have the same problems like me. But this can take some time....

Assembler is for me the most horrible language... I like more PHP :D

Assembler is even more backwards than C.... Thank you! GNU GCC for making the dirty work for us!

BTW, maybe you should write to KolibriOS team? (This is OS wrote on ASM). AFAIK they have C compiler. Probably to port it on visopsys take less time.
