Out of the 250 computer languages that are in existence, the first choice of computer professional today is C or C++. However, there are same diehards who still feel that road to haven is through Cobol. Thus, are these guys who use C, C++ stupid? If C programmers are stupid, then the two top software companies of the world have been stupidly scaling new heights everyday. Microsoft Corp. and Borland International write all their best selling software in C or C++. These comprise Windows 95, Visual C++, Borland C++ etc., all best-sellers in true sense of the word. For that matter, even the Cobol compiler is written in C.
