Why does it matter if you can code a GUI in 200 lines using just the standard library? That is such an arbitrary and useless example. The C/C++ standard library is just a minimal set of functions, most of which were designed years and years ago. If you want a GUI you get a graphics library and use that. Using SDL you can easily create a C++ (or even a C) program using GUI in under 200 lines (really under 50 lines). Also the number of lines you code is irrelavant as that is variable depending on the language and the programmer's style.

Yes, you´re right but you can the GUI example on any OS excepect Win 3.1, Dos, ...(which who haven´t multi processing), do that with a c++ program ok a c++ is more preforemed than java but if you want to code a program which runs on any OS without changing it then you may choose Java for you project

And how exactly would a GUI example run in DOS?

Actually Java doesn't support any OS older than Windows 98. . . Windows 95 is sort of supported, but not really. Many programs will still work on 95, but there is no guarantee. :)

@coolsi I said excepect 3.1 Dos,... If you had read this little small word then you would know that it doesn´t run under DOS

I don't think there's a perfect Programming Language, because every language has it's own problems to solve.

I use C++ for programming my Gaming AI and the General Gaming Engine, because my AI needs so much performance that the same in Java would lag extremely -.-.

You´re right. for example if you want to code a compiler in java you...
a) loose platform independece
b) won´t do that cause its to hard to do that

If I may repeat an already mentioned (probably) point...
Many C++ libraries are totally portable. (They should be anyway... unless forced into platform specifics) That Dr. Kain and Snowdonia I mentioned on the Darwinia forums were written in C++ using Allegro, and therefore are hideously portable to platforms I don't even want to know about. (Sysrq compiled me a linux Snowdon, and hopefully he'll do a DrK).

I believe that Java is slower than C++... and that's why I don't use it. It doesn't offer anything I really want over C++.

Edit - "Uplink Online in 3D in Java and it will run smoothly"... The Uplink Forum is the same as usual I see ;)

yeah seems like nothing has changed ^^. I wasn't visiting a week or too, but nothing important, except your replay, happened ^^. Only the general kind of spam, the meaningless conversations about life, the Universe and Everything (omg I can't tell ya how I love the Hitch Hickers Row ^^) and the junk that comes out when a couple of teenagers had a bit too much to drink :x

And bumping that was necessary... why, exactly?
