Real software doesn't use file extensions at all.

    Real software doesn't use file extensions at all.

    Really?

    • So your editor that looks at the extension to determine what syntax profile to use isn't "Real software"?
    • Your C++ compiler that uses the file extension to determine whether to compile the file as C or C++ isn't "Real software"?
    • gunzip gunzip: _831513.exp: unknown suffix -- ignored isn't "Real software".
    • ...

    What a pointless, valueless, meaningless statement.


    With the rise and rise of 'Social' network sites: 'Computers are making people easier to use everyday'
    Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.
    "Science is about questioning the status quo. Questioning authority". I knew I was on the right track :)
    In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.
