Re: Will VB hurt .NET? Instead of .NET helping VB?
There is more to a language than raw power over memory.
TI-Basic has very little power, but it is far better than C or Java for
doing mathematical problems. Fortran, which inspired QBasic's syntax, is the
language of choice at the San Diego Supercomputing Center. Pretty good for a
language that doesn't even have raw pointers.
BTW, have they ever gotten around to adding simple exponents to C?
