it is funny actually, because it is very simple to avoid memory leaks in C. You just free the memory.

Along comes an *improvement* calling itself C++, which then proceeds to dig itself into a hole, many times, adding layers of complexity, even more tortuous code, static classes which look like namespaces, unnamed namespaces where static functions used to rule, the magic bullet of exception handling!!!!, ah, but now we are leaking memory, ahaha, smart pointers!!!!!, oh, that didnt work out quite well, kill auto_ptr!!!!!!


And whats the latest attempt to put a bandage on the bandage on the bandage?



There is a reason a screw driver looks like a screw driver, and always has done, for centuries. It does the job!


Can we leave our programming language tools alone? No chance. Too many nerds thinking they can be *improved*.
