Smoking, Drinking, and to a lesser extent Obesity are personal choices. You can decide not to smoke or drink, or decide to go on a diet. In other words, these are lifestyle choices. Covid-19 is not such a thing. Closing down the economy to stop smoking and drinking would in all likelyhood be counterproductive. Closing down the economy to avoid close social interaction will reduce the transmission of Covid-19. The maths of it is trivial and should not need explaining to software engineers.
I went out on a wrong promise, saving as much lives as possible.
The premise should've been, saving my life and those I love as much as possible.
In my boundless naivety I assumed we were trying to make the world a better place
Please, some recommendations on Android development in languages that do not impose the class keyword.
I need development tools and a language that has bindings to the Android programming API equal in rights to the Java programming language.
The problem is that I picked The Corona SDK and I liked it very much after working with one or two examples. When it came time to do what I really want, a file explorer, it became obvious that The Corona SDK doesn't have access to the file API of Android. It could use only some sand boxed storage for persistence.
To be quite specific, the win32 API is C native, but all you have to do to program win32 applications in Pascal with equal rights and power is to have the Pascal versions of the equivalent include files a C programmer uses to program in Windows.
I would be happy to learn of such a programming environment in a language like: C, Go (Dart is out of the question), Rust... Something that can deal with objects, but doesn't involve classes.
I have been a member for a long time and I decided I will play by the rules in order to stay here. It is that important to me.
That is not to say I don't like to be censored or punished for speaking my mind, but this is the wrong site to be doing that anyhow. I can always go to 4chan and piss people off there with ZERO repercussions. lol.
