Article on Kuro5hin::Why C Is Not My Favorite Programming Language By James A C Joyce
My comment on this is , every reason given in this article for not using C is why I like C and use it!
Truth is, asking what is the best language is like asking what gear is best to use on a stick shift car. The answer is that it depends on how fast your moving, are you going up hill or pulling a heavy load.
For super small tight optimized code Assembly or hand coded HEX/Binary is best.
For OS Internals / Drivers and other things close to the hardware, something like C or Fourth is best. For text files manipulation PERL is best. For Windowing GUI apps and Object Oriented language like C++ or Delphi is best. Even COBOL has it's place for maintaining security while a large group of untrusted programmers work on a financial system.
Me personally, at times I like to know exactly what kind of CPU op-codes I am generating when I write a line of code. So to do this I tend to mix Assembly,C and C++. But while on UNIX I often use shell scripts and PERL for TEXT data manipulation.
