In C · I’m back to working on mod_atom and kind of gloomy because it’s C programming; so much more effort to do a unit of work compared, for example, to Ruby. In this context, Terry Jones’ Embracing Encapsulation got my attention and made me feel vaguely dinosaurian. While he may be on to something important, there are some consolations for us grizzled pointer-wranglers. For example, the list of things implemented in largely or wholly in C: Unix, Linux, Solaris, Windows, Java, .NET, Flash, Mozilla, Microsoft Office, the Apache server, the X window system, Perl, Python, and Ruby. Not bad, really not bad at all.
