I love Delphi. My first big project was on Borland Delphi and Interbase. It was always ahead of the curve. The guy that designed it also created C#

I used Turbo Pascal a lot back in the 80's. Borland had the best IDEs then.

Yep. In fact Microsoft started producing comparable stuff to Borland's 90s IDEs mid 2000s. Amazing how they have outlasted superior competition in terms of product.

Girylman - C# for general purpose and guis (best IDE out there) and I don't buy that c and c++ are faster anymore, R for data science, NetLogo for small-scale simulation visualization and agent-oriented programming, SQL Server for databases (usually don't need all the fanciness and and power and MySql or SQL-lite would be adequate but Management Studio is the the best IDE out there). Microsoft is very good to programmers with their IDEs. I've never done web development.

Java, JavaScript, MATLAB, and Python for myself. I also have worked with C# (MS Java) for game design.

In Brainfuck she made me a file that, when opened as txt, looked like a boat and once I "ran" it it looked like a flower made of the words "happy birthday"
I understand the basic principles behind how she did that because I started with C and Python ages ago but I would not be able to do that, and especially not in Brainfuck...
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brainfuck

That looks almost like the algorithm for a Turing Tape. I find it fascinating that anything that can be computed can be computed with just a few commands and a strip of discretized tape, albeit an infinite one. Brainfuck indeed.

It's a well designed language, granted. But the lack of libraries really hurts.

Or inline functions, anonymous functions, dynamic typing, lazy evaluation, runtime edit and continue, templates, language integrated queries , inheritance and overloading or any type of polymorphism either. Why did you highlight scoping rules? C uses lexical scoping.

RE: Programmer Checkin
I was gonna learn Python but I can't type for shit. Also, I'm sloppy as fuck. Weeping

I got my TI-92 to run the Mandelbrot set; probably as far as I'll ever get. Took it 12 hours... I kinda feel like a TI-92, only dumber. Tongue
