Am I the only one who enjoys learning low languages like C/C++ and absolutely hate Java (seriously FUCK Java so much I hate using it)

Working with pointers and just having the compiler completely explode in your face because you forgot a semicolon or an index out of bounds maybe a bracket just disappeared and you are frustrated but then you fix it and voila it works like magic.

Maybe it's just a thing of mine because C++ was the first programming language I learned and I miss this feeling of hopelessness (I think I might have done BDSM fetishes) and it makes me feel nostalgic.

When I was first learning them all I thought about was how cool this stuff is.

    Java says fuck you too buddy.

    low level**** languages

    If you are interested into low level programming, you should also try assembly out.

    @AleCx04 did you need to build a factory to be able to comment this?

    @gitpull yeah just a mistake.
    I've tried assembly actually on the mios processor and it's great but stuff you could do is limited because it's not so much 'programming' as much as 'architecture'

    Each tool has it's place, but have to admit I've missed these flame wars! Got to ask though, what do you hate most about Java, @ahmednader?

    Saying that you cant do low level in java is literally just saying you dont know java lmao 😘

    @ahmednader no. I literally clicked on the reply link and wrote my comment :)

    I appreciate the "cleverness" of more modern languages (hiding all the dangerous stuff, providing automatic garbage collection etc.) but I am a big fan of C. It does what you ask. Nothing more, nothing less. It's not the easiest to work with but makes you definitely care about writing high quality code.

    One thing I regret when coming back to cpp is the huuuuuge stack trace (emphasis on the /u*/). You wrongly "send" to cout something that cannot be printed, you'll receive 100lines of stack trace.

    But there aren't bounds on arrays in c/c++. IndexOutOfBounds is a Java exception :/

    Have you tried Rust? I think you might enjoy it a lot.

    I hardly consider c++ to be low level nowadays. C or Assembly

    Languages that hide memory behind object models aren't low level IMO

    @Zambito1
    Rust is amazing

    Java is just so messy and it's compilers are awful. Maybe it's just something with me but I'd rather write assembly than Java @TheLazyDev

    @BindView I didn't say that all I said is that I hate Java not that it can't do low level

    I think I didn't make myself very clear so sorry about that but what I mean is that I love learning C/C++ rather than other newer languages that make everything easy.

    I think this makes the difference between a computer scientist/software engineer and a programmer since everyone nowadays calls himself a programmer for writing some Python (which I have nothing against) but no one goes down to the level of C/C++ and the so called experts that can't deal with pointers even.

    @AlgoRythm of course, there's std::out_of_range
