Comparison of high-level computer programming languages

  1. Dec 12, 2018 #81
    I started coding with Pascal first. Nostalgia aside, it's not a very well-designed language. I really enjoyed C, where you had more fine control over memory allocation, and your strings could be of different lengths (and still be of type char*, unlike Pascal, where the length of the array was part of the type).

    It's also a little too verbose. It's very good for a teaching language, but the smallest project I've been involved in, would be three times as large if it were written in Pascal.

    Still love it thought. My first...
