he memory problem in C++ and C are related to the same problem.

Of course they can be, they are the same language, but the memory problems that were introduced by exception handling, which were fixed by auto pointers, which introduced their own problems, is the kind of 'the fix causes bigger problems that need a bigger fix' problem that C++ has.

the program with the most object or bits of memory moving around are likely to be in C++


You should see some of the drivers I have had to write.... Seriously, you want to see data traffic at an elevated rate, heavy memory use, drivers do it. But almost always dont touch the data, they dont care what it is, and you cant do floating point math in the kernel, so no, no fancy algorithms there.


I like C++ when there are distinct objects to manage, but when it is used to control a process I find it cumbersome compared to C. (Drivers are pretty much 100% process)
