( [id://3333]=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
First off let me say i sympathize with you completely, as i am in a very similar boat (learned a lot of perl, taking c++ classes, etc), and while all the arguements about learning a low level language, or just a different one certainly are valid, i think the biggest problem is that you tend to get assignments that are more perl oriented, such as string processing and so forth, so you get to see first hand all of c++'s weaknesses (i think the state of strings in C counts as a weakness), but you never see any of the strenghts (super fast low level code).

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
