I don't believe in answering questions completely. IMHO, one gains the most when one deduces as much of the answer on their own.

Over the past several years on SO I learned the following:

  • The vital importance of being precise.
  • Helping others learn can enrich oneself immeasurably.
  • Some one always knows more, learn from them.

I like C very much, but I think we should stop teaching it (as part of teaching C++).

I also get a twitch in my eye every time someone on SO adds "My Professor/Assignment forbids the use of the standard c++ library". This is so asinine, and has nothing to do with teaching "real" C++.
