You can't be serious ! *Every* language has problems.  There is no panacea.

I happen to think that C++ has a large number of positive things going for it and it's much further along the track of stabilization than any other language with it's capabilities.

So, even though C++ has "niggling yucky details" it is the Right(tm) choice for many applications; and for a large subset, the only suitable language.

Only WUSSes are scared by "niggling yucky details" ... :-))

so much bad C++ code

good programmer overall).

I would have to agree completely with you on this one.
