me learning about C++:
who the << fuck << thought << this << was << a << good << idea << '\n'
C: printf("Hello world\n");
me: ah, okay, i can understand that
C++: cout << "Hello world" << endl
me: the FUCK did you just call me
@kinsey People who wanted to be able to combine binary and string data into single streams for storage and recall.
@kinsey the safer way to do it is actually std::cout << "Hello world" << std::endl;
i cannot believe this language is considered appropriate to introduce people to programming with at Sprawl State
@kinsey operator overloading is evil in every language TBH.
In C++, it's just one of very many evils, so everyone using it accepts it as kind of normal. Poor souls.
