The STL and C# make people lazy. 14405
Hey - thats something Ive been looking for, hence why I took a look.
Standard methods? # defining common language constructs to something that youre familiar with...yuk! Id hate to have to maintain a large code base written by someone who did that....
Good? There are many people here who could produce something that would produce the same results. Some might make something more efficient, some might make something more maintainable, some might make something with more functionality, some might make something more portable, some might make something with fewer bugs....I personally did NOT consider the code that I saw to be "good".
shape or form they take) and have been for a loooooong time. In fact, let me rewrite that statement for you:-
"I think that's because header files and C make people lazy, they tend to rely on the built-in stuff too much."
Im prity sure I read-heard a similar statement by an asm programmer back in...ooohhh '89.
Anywyas, laziness is the entire reason I program in C# these days rather than C++ - I code faster and end up with fewer bugs. Sure Id LIKE the portability and speed of C++ - fact of the matter is though that its cheaper to throw more hardware at most projects than it is to write effiecient code. In fact those are the exact reasons I moved from Basic to C, to C++, to Java, to C# etc. It isnt JUST a matter of speed.....
Anyways - I looked at your code and decided to stick to
