Considering that 8 bit BASICs of the 70s had range checked and garbage collected strings, it is amazing how much damage C has done.

I love that we have finally reached the point where people are shaking their fists at the young'ins about coding.

C was an amazing language but now knowing what I know about languages a "C" is the grade I would give it.

that is so true. Granted it was also slow as molasses, but it got the job done

You don't really want to bring back that crutch of a programming language. C has issues that come with it's power

It's the attitude of "memory is cheap" and "CPUs are faster" that corrupts young minds and makes them write sloppy code. :-)

Maybe not so much C, but its common environment (POSIX,libc,et.al).

We would be in a much better place now had K&R used Pascal style strings as opposed to null terminated...

totally agree. even lisp in late 50s and early 60s had garbage collection.

they should've probably done that like Go if not in a full VM like Java.
