QuestionAm I wrong? PinmemberCody22721-Dec-13 23:38 
Am I wrong thinking that C is a better language for one to learn as Java or Delphi?
 
I have a friend who always says C and C++ are hard to learn, outdated and impractical. I can understand that he thinks Java is better as it was his first language, but I seriously can not understand why he thinks Delphi is better than C. After Basic it's one of the worst languages that I've seen so far.
 
I was alyways convinced that you need to know how a computer works at low-level to be able to write decent code... Altough I've never never written a single program in ASM I feel like I would've never understood coding without it and seeing what my friend texts me sometimes I might be right. Only a few days ago he stated that he wouldn't need to learn pointers because Java "doesn't use them" and "var parameters in Delphi aren't pointers". And at the same time he asked how to send an array of pixels with WinSock because the appropriate delphi-function only accepts strings.
 
But then there are things that really annoy me about C like null-terminated strings. They are so damn slow!
