Subject: Re: Stroustrup on Java? From: Erik Naggum <email@example.com> Date: 1997/05/01 Newsgroups: comp.lang.lisp Message-ID: <firstname.lastname@example.org> * Bjarne Stroustrup in comp.lang.c++ | Java takes the part of C++ that I like the least - its syntax derived | from the C syntax - and not the parts I consider most important - the | ability to do data abstraction without compromising efficiency and the | ability to write user-defined types that are treated on equal footing | with built-in types. See "The Design and Evolution" for a detailed | explanation of these points. FYI. #\Erik -- if we work harder, will obsolescence be farther ahead or closer?
