Quote:Original post by dmikesell Quote:Original post by ApochPiQ As languages grow and expand, I think a lot of people see the "old" languages like C++ getting squeezed out of the picture and killed. This, as has been made clear already, is not the case. Rather, C++ is being slowly moved out of areas where it is not the best possible tool, and in those areas, better tools are arising. For example, C++ sucks for RAD - that's it, plain and simple. Why do you say C++ sucks for RAD? Ever used C++ Builder? Sadly, Borland have screwed C++ Builder when they released C++BuilderX. The RAD capabilities have been utterly removed and C++ Builder's future is rather uncertain. A big reason not to use C++ Builder, IMHO.
