C looks absolutely barbaric after Java

    After Rust as well. Feels unnecessarily cumbersome.

    I dunno. I have a fair amount of experience in both C++ and Rust, and I still like C. It's just so...simple. Pure.
    But then, I do a lot of stuff with embedded controllers and low level OS hackery, so yeah, I'm biased.

    An elegant weapon for a more civilized era.

    Seriously though, I have no strong opinion one way or the other, I just wanted to get that quote in.

    @irene why tho? Readability of Java is much better, IMHO
    And __int64 or __int64_t drives me crazy in C... I understand, why and for what, it's just after java I can barely read all these pointers, memory related things, etc. ...

    They are both great, different problems requires different tools. :)

    @Trablarer Can't argue with that :)

    Pointers look barbaric after Java..

    Again, I am not into that much into lower os level work that requires actual manual memory manipulation, so my opinions might be biased ..

    Well don't compare them. Use them where they're meant to be used.

    Hey, it's just a rant, no serious comparison here. Indeed they have different usages.
    I need to maintain and refactor a large project which is written in C and I haven't touched C for ~ a year now.
