June 28th, 2005, 01:45 AM #42Yes C# is coming up strong IMO, faster than C++ and java and c obviously, but its windows only of course, and it requires the .net framework, which some do not have, but c# is a very powerfull language.
June 28th, 2005, 01:57 AM #43Ideally a beginner should use something where they understand every single line in a program they are writing, irregardless of if it's just one line or not.
public static void main (string Argsv)
using namespace std; (which some picky compilers will reqire lest you prefix everything with std:: )
No one will be explaining public, static, or string anytime soon The only thing C# does is enclose it in a namespace and add it to a class. If you can ignore the things you don't understand from that main (which are all class related) you can ignore the rest IMO.
Personally I feel those can be ignored (the namespace and class enclosure) to start with, but to each their own
I agree that the teaching method IS where it is all at. The rest is just syntax. But since he is asking here, he should get pointed to materials that would teach him in the right fashion and not the wrong way As long as the language can do it and he is given the right resources.
There is one benefit of C/C++, you have to learn the right way! Not much out there in the way of VS.Net to give you the illusion you are learning.
I personally agree that C/C++ is the way to go as a first language (and much prefer them) , I was just pointing out that C# is in no way deficient if taught correctly.

Well I mean if you actually make an attempt to learn. Finding programs and attempting to hack them up to do what you want doesn't count
Solid point though. hehe
