How to name a file CON in Windows.
Make a new folder
use ALT code
ALT + 255
Then write CON

@CodeLongAndPros Yes, Linux is the best when it comes to operating systems (Windows is second, then everything else follows with iOS in last place in that section, then MacOS). (the only reason I use Windows as my main is because a lot of things still don't run on Linux fully...) Also, yes C is better than C++, but C++ is required for some things such as Arduino and boards that are programmed with Energia (pretty much a complete remake of Arduino for other boards). However, with Vim, I must disagree... Nano is better than Vim in my opinion...
@HahaYes Let me demonstrate:
Ridiculous. That’s like say “adding in calculus is harder than adding in algebra” and then proceeding to find the absolute hardest way to do it in calculus. Just because you can do the complicated version doesn’t mean you have to. You can still do a c cast in C++, it’s just that we have far more mechanisms for casting in much better, safer, more understandable, fancier, interesting, revealing ways than anything in C. Also neither can be better than the other. They’re basically the same f’ing language with like one thing extra. Pointless argument. ;)
Just thought I’d say.
@Highwayman I just find that C++ has different ways that are not as efficient as C. C headers for example. Since C has no standard library, there is no “magic header” to include all GLibC headers. You have to be explicit in what you want.
Plus, to do anything more than output, cout falls before printf, a function, I may add, that was designed for C.
@Highwayman To extend the Calc/Alg argument, you don’t have to even use Algebra. You can just compute it using paper. But Algebra is more powerful, and has some very simple rules. You can understand how Algebra works, with less effort than Calculus. Calculus has a place as well, but it sure seems that, for general math, Algebra is better.
